It isn’t that I could care less, it’s that I’m careless with managing my time to make sure I make a post to the blog every day. I’m making a commitment to be more diligent. In the meantime, as the song says: Forgive me Renew me Lord, I’m sorry… This is a … Read more and listen Forgive Me
Heard this song while driving in my car yesterday and it caught me in a way I didn’t recall. Maybe I was feeling humbled and grateful that Joyful Voices had been asked to sing with Barry Manilow this evening; maybe it was for all the other many wonderful ways my life has been blessed. Whatever … Read more and listen Lord We Give You The Praise
Different kind of song; has a long intro and a Detroit soul kinda feel to it with the big strings and all. I like it!!
I love the sheer, raw power of LaShun Pace’s voice, and this old traditional song showcases it perfectly. The simple dominant bass drum beat, the solo voice and the choir grab you at the start and suck you right in. Other than the opening piano riff, the song is acapella all the way through until … Read more and listen Another Day’s Journey

Thus gospel shows like this … Read more and listen Would You Believe In Me
If you happen to have an extra 11 1/2 minutes (or even if you don’t), find the time to listen to this song. It is a song from one of the first gospel cassette tapes I bought and I’ve come to love it. This is the FULL version of the song, complete with what is … Read more and listen I Worship Thee
I’m amazed at what I don’t know. I tripped across this song this morning, and it just took me and GRABBED me. Whew…sooooo powerful. And those Muscle Shoals musicians add so much to the song. The question. IS THIS A GOSPEL SONG…a TRUE GOSPEL SONG?? Because even though it is performed by the incredible Ms. … Read more and listen Pressing On
Just when I start worrying I’m running out of songs to post, I realize there are still lots and lots of songs I should have posted already because they are both gospel classics and jut plain great songs. I haven’t posted enough music by Kurt Carr; I should have. He is one of the most … Read more and listen Grateful
A nice old song of the Church from Keith Pringle and his Pentecoastal Community choir from 1990.
