The Men

I had a hard time picking just one song today. These three men are probably my favorite male artists. OK maybe there are a few more but I'll start with these.

D'angelo, whom I can't wait till he comes out with new music. I don't care what his body looks like he is still alright with me. "Heaven Must Be Like This" is a remake from the live CD of his. This CD is hard to find but of course I have it.

Maxwell, who I would marry if I had the opportunity. Went to his concert a few months ago. I still have a euphoric feeling from that, but I do wish he would hurry up on the new CD. So I had a real hard time picking a song from him. "Lifetime" is a good one. You will be hearing more from him.

Lenny Kravitz, Hot musically and physically. I love the rock, soul, alternative vibe he has going on. "I Belong to You" is one of my favorite's from him. The words just get to me. You will hear a few more from him also.

Peace, Love, And Music

The Dirty South

OK, it is about 3-5 inches of snow outside and I am missing the ATL right now. I started my college career at Clark Atlanta University. I can only remember it icing once the 3 years I was there. Cold or let me rephrase Cool weather I can deal with, but come on now snow.................. Give me a break. I grew up here in the Midwest where the weather changes in a blink of an eye but I don't like winter. Period.

In Honor

My new song is "We are One" by Maze. Maze is my mom's favorite band. I happen to like them also. I picked this song in honor of our new president and what he is trying to do for our country; bring us together.

President Obama

I thought these were some great images. This is exactly what our new president needs. The second image was taken here in St.Louis last year at a convention. The first image is by an local artist Cbabi Bayoc here in St.Louis. I have included a link. Check him out. He is very talented.

Remember This

This song doesn't get played that much but I remember when it came out. I had a fascination with music videos. This video had so many cool artists and it pays tribute to and american hero.

Happy Birthday To A King

Today is Dr. Martin Luther King's Birthday. We as a nation may celebrate his life on Monday, but today I wanted to remind myself as well as others what a powerful speaker he was and a wonderful man. Check out the video.

Who Do You Love?

When I think of love I think of my family. But the best decision I have made in my life is allowing myself to fall in love with my savior. You don't realize how empty you were until you allow that love to overtake your life.

My new song is a simple praise and worship song: "Falling In Love With Jesus" sang by Jonathan Butler. No further explanation needed

Be blessed.

I love butterflies and I love Christmas. Pottary barn had these ornaments in their stores over the holiday so I bought 4 of them. That cost me $20 on sale. I like to change the way my tree looks every year so it can get costly. After closer investigation of these ornaments I said "self you can make these." I have a whole year to get myself ready for christmas 2009. When I am done I hope that my tree looks like this :

I'll keep you posted.

Killer Joe

My Song for today is "Killer Joe" by Quincy Jones. This man is a genius when it comes to music. When someone can write and produce jazz, r&b, gospel, hip hop, etc that is a true gift.

You may say "why choose this song it has few lyrics?" A good song sometimes has few lyrics but affects you the same as if it had a lot. This song makes me pat my feet, smile, rock from side to side, dance around. I just love this song.

Hope you enjoy it.

My new song is "Closer" By Goapele. This is the ring tone on my cell. I love it. The song constantly reminds me that I am getting closer to my dreams. There is a line in the song that says " sometimes you just got to let it go." I that is what I have done. I have gone to God about the things that I want for my life, things that I think I need, but ultimately all things are done on God's timing not mine. No need for me to worry. I serve an awesome God. I will sit back and watch the awesome things he will do in my life. I am getting closer to my dreams.



OK it's Sunday and I am extremely tired. I sing in my church choir and we have to be there at 7:30 am. This kinda creates a problem when you can't go to sleep for some strange reason and then when you do, you wake around 3:00 am like it's the right time to be up. Next thing I know I am watching Cold Case repeats.

After a great morning of worship and the word, I get home about 1:00pm eat and lay down to take a nap. What happens? As soon as I get going good (sleep)the doorbell rings. It's family can't be to upset.

I gave up.

Everything You Touch

So my first song selection is The Winans, "Everything You Touch is a Song." I choose this song because there is more to a song than the beat, melody, or particular artist sound. The words get me sometimes even if I don't particularly like the artist. It's amazing how powerful music is. It can make you happy, sad, laugh , or cry.

I remember hearing this song when I was little. I didn't understand the meaning until I was older and experienced life's many ups and downs. Hope you enjoy.

Goals for 2009:

  • Pray consistently

  • Study the bible at least once a day

  • Start my graduate program

  • Research home ownership seriously

  • Research Ethiopian adoption seriously

  • Pay off some debt

  • Exercise

  • Get a new job

  • Save more

These are a few of the goals that came to mind that I would like to accomplish this year. This is one of the reasons I started this blog. Pastor Kim last sunday said that if someone else knows your goals, dreams and aspirations that it is more likely you will stick to a plan to make sure achievement is met. I believe this to be true because people wont let you forget. She asked us to write down something that we wanted to change for the year 2009 on a piece of paper and give it to another member in the church so they could not only remind them of what they wrote but also pray for them. Thought it was a good idea. I didn't get a chance to participate because I was in the choir stand , but I think this blog entry will be just as good.


This is my first blog. I decided to start 2009 documenting my life. I have been stalking a few blogs for the last year or so and thought I would give it a try. Song For You will highlight a new song each week. People close to me know that I love music, so this is the first idea that popped into my mind. Hope you enjoy.
