I am part of a songwriting contest centered around this present pandemic and global crisis Covid 19! Artists were asked to share a new original song that conveyed how they feel about the present pandemic and a message they’d like to express. It could be comedic, or serious etc. Out of 300 plus submissions, I was called a few days or so ago to be notified that “Sanctified And Sanitized” (Wash Your hands) had landed in the Top 10! PLEASE GO And VOTE for “Sanctified AND Sanitized”. First round voting ends May 15th.
There are different things in life that can rob you and I of our “joy” if we allow them to…be it financial struggles, broken relationships, “Religion” instead of spiritual truth, people not believing in you or your vision, feelings of unworthiness, physical battles “the cares of this world” etc….and the list goes on. BUT In those times, we need to take a deep breath and remind ourselves that GOD desires for us to WIN and He’s already paid the ultimate price for us to do so! Therefore, in different seasons of life, whether things are going great or if we’re experiencing challenging times, may the Lord grace us to COUNT IT ALL JOY as we get connected and STAY connected with Him…Knowing…if HE be for us “who or what” can stand against us!
…So before my hubbie Terrence of UrbanMultiTracks.com – R&B Hip-Hop Pop Urban-Gospel Beats and I headed out for our date night last week, we had to handle some Biz in the studio with our homie Donny D-MAUB Harper! He’s featured on my new Single “Joy, Joy, Joy” (On iTunes & Other digital stores 3/1/14) from my up coming CD “Diamond In The Making”. T, laced this joint!!! Meditation: True Joy is birthed by hope, sustained by Faith and expressed through Love. Such JOY serves to remind us that God is on our side! During moments or seasons in your life fam, when some level of disappointment or sadness is experienced- IF tempered with a confident expectation…realization that it “won’t last always” and that the sun WILL return in the midst of the “darkness” (situation)-you will be strengthened by “The joy of the Lord” (Neh 8:10) Trust God with your life and be determined to go after all HE has for YOU in 2014 and beyond!
I am so honored and just stoked about the way you all have responded to my SafeAuto commercial and jingle that won the SafeAuto Do The Jingle 2013 contest. A lot of you have commented via twitter and facebook as well as on Youtube to let me know that you wish that the song was available in digital stores for digital downloads, well I wanna to let you know that it is not only now available but its the full version and not just the shorter version that you hear on the commercial you know the full version, the one that gives you that (singing) “Stepped in the car heading out of town but before I hit the road I gotta strap it down. Mind at ease rolling fancy free cause I know I’m insured when I turn the key Cause I made a” (singing stops)…Well I can’t give you no more, I need you to download it (lol).
Serious though, I will love it if you would take a moment to download the full version of “Got Me Covered” from iTunes Amazon or Bandcamp. Please also rate and review on iTunes and Amazon (no purchase necessary).
Thanks so much and you have a wonderful prosperous 2014!
