Sing Christmas! | Music Monday

Posted by in Featured

I’m late.  I know. I know. It’s Wednesday, and I’m posting Music Monday.  If it makes you feel better, I planned to post this on Monday, but forgot.  Yea, I know, that’s so unlike me to forget anything. Our Chancel Choir hosted their annual Christmas Cantata this weekend.  It’s always a blessing to hear the Christmas story told with music.  I’m grateful for the people that spent many months preparing for this year’s event.

That’s why we can thank God for those who do hip hop right. Here’s probably…read more

Truthfully? I caught the final 10 seconds of the song Motown Philly back in 1991, and wasn’t won over by this new group, Boyz II Men.  Their debut was soon after we first heard of another group, Jodeci.  Long live 90’s R&B! Jodeci had the look most people I knew wanted.  Their music surely had a great sound and feel.  They sang love songs, but the kind you didn’t have to be embarrassed to listen to in public.  Then I heard another song by this newer group, the one I wasn’t so…read more
