Even from a little boy, gospel music has always been an integral part of my life.  Although, at a young age, traditional old southern gospel music is the genre of music I was raised on with my parents being from the south and all.  Alabama, to be exact.  Most of the lyrics of traditional southern gospel music to me is very basic in nature however, it packs a punch with its soul stirring rhythms and its heart felt messages.  Then there were the hymns that Grandma use to sing.  Songs like “iaaaahhhh…..love the Lord, He heard my cry, and pitied every grown.”  I know I’m takin’ somebody back, but man, when you think about the words; You Feel Me?

The Birth of Contemporary Gospel

Being blessed to share in the experience of growing up around such soulful and powerful messages of song and music, naturally, progression would introduce me to what’s known as Contemporary Gospel.  Now, I haven’t always been a big fan of this genre of music, because to me it was like worldly musiccomposed with a backdrop of gospel and I wanted gospel to keep its authentic roots.  It was disturbing.  That is, until I heard Yolanda Adams.  Really not sure where I got the CD, but when I heard “The Battle is Not Yours, it’s the Lord’s”, I was DONE.  I guess cause at the time…I was going through something, but now I’m a fan.

So I have Customized one of my Favorite Old YouTube Videos to share.     Now, without further delay, let me Introduce to some and Present to others My All Time Favorite Gospel Artist, Yolanda Adams.  ENJOY.

While we are living in a fast-paced society with many distractions it is difficult to stay focused, however, we also have many vehicles  in which we can take advantage of to help keep us inspired and motivated.  It is amazing how a little inspiration can literally transform your day.
