A nice contemporary update to a traditional song, “Move On Up (A Little Higher)”. Nothing fancy here, but the combo of the drum beat and the deep walking bass line give it an infectious quality. The vamp that starts at 2:34 seems to go on and on…well, actually it IS almost 1/2 the song!
- Move On Up Rev. Dreyfus Smith & The Wings of Faith Mass Choir 4:25
The choir is from the Wings of Faith Baptist Church in Conley Georgia. The church was named from scripture taken from: a.) Isaiah 40:31, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up on wings as eagles”, and b.) Hebrews 11:1, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”.
Not to get into a deep theological discussion, but I’ve always found the idea of faith being “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” worth pondering for a bit. It’s an interesting way to look at the concept of “faith”.
