It's finally here! I got a chance to stop by this video shoot for Victor Jackson's new single "Bus of Love", and to see the finish product come together is pretty dope! Victor as many of you know is a super creative individual who manages to be a great singer, choreographer, stylist, writer, and on and on all at once. This guy is just super talented.
Wow is all I could say after watching this.The below video features three young women performing on the Queen Latifah Show. They are from an extraordinary program out of LA called, Get Lit..which aims to teach kids literacy through the art of the spoken word. A form of expression used to present poetry to an audience. I was completely blown away by this.

The Country Music Awards show is one of my favorites! This is mostly due to the fact that (as a song writer) I feel that lyrically country music has the best standard. Last night's CMAs aired with some really super cool performances, honest acceptance speeches, and of course our fave hosts- Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley.

This year's halloween costumes were next level, mainly due to the way social media has influenced creatives of all sorts to think outside of the box. People were acting out memorable celeb moments, the Morton Salt container, and classic movies like never before! I had quite a few favorite moments that I think are worth mentioning.
Every once in a while I hear a song that reminds me just why we say God is love. A song that makes it hard to really figure out just who the singer is serenading. You have to step back and ask yourself a few questions. Is this a song about longing for the physical touch of another human? Is this a beautiful worship song about longing to be closer to God? These songs are blatant reminders that real love in it's truest form is God's energy whether you're sharing it person to person or in reverence to God alone.

The type of success Adele had after releasing her last album 21 (2011), is almost unheard of. Here are the receipts...She swept six Grammy Awards-one being Album of the Year, went on to win an Academy Award for a song she recorded for 007. Adele's 21 album holds the title of Best Selling album of the Decade in the UK. It has reemerged to sell thousands of records at the most random times throughout the years. The album has now sold well over 11 million copies since it dropped, and it spent 24 weeks at no 1 on Billboard 200.

It hasn't even been a full month since Tiff Joy released her self titled debut album. Before she knew it, she'd gone from a sought out worship leader in Chicago to household name. First was the hit song, "Amazing" that she penned (and ultimately went on to record with Ricky Dillard). The record took over gospel radio. Then came the Stellar Award win for Song of the Year for the same track, and then...just as I predicted.. a placement on the coveted top 5 Gospel albums on Billboard. Win after win after win.

The name Justin Gilbert (or "Bishop" as many like to refer to him) goes far in the music industry these days. He's had a long road up to this point. Starting out singing and playing in his family's church, Justin was groomed into an exceptional musician! Now, years later he can be found touring with the likes of Justin Timberlake, and releasing his own debut album, ALIGNED. This release is one most thought would come way sooner, but things don't always happen as we think they should. When the time was right, a life altering moment pushed Gilbert into full devotion to his purpose. That moment in time is the reason I'm here now telling you about his debut offering.
