Wonderful time with a great woman and performer, it was.
Picking up the tickets for 1iota and bringing some friends along for the ride, I headed over to Hollywood and Highland for an awesome free concert from Jill Scott. Since it would be my first time seeing her in live format since the “A Long Walk” tour over 7 years ago… I was curious and a bit geeked to see what she would have in store and how she would sound live on these tracks. And as usual, Ms. Scott does not disappoint. Although only given 4 to 5 song set to keep us impressed and entertained, Jill added on two extra songs just for us. Singing “Shame” (you can see that below), So Blessed (a new, NICE track), Golden, Gimme, It’s Love, and A Long Walk… I have to say. Its the best free concert I’ve been to in a while.

Thanks for a great time, Ms. Scott.

Check the video below for more, and enjoy.

Mary Mary consistently make hits in the name of the Lord. I have no negative qualms with this.

I'm walking too!

I love Mary Mary. I have for a while. They are greatness. Shoutout to Yolanda Adams, by the way.
So why cant the sacred mix with the secular and party in the name of the Lord? Imagine all the youth that would find love in the lord as a result of music that was universal to everyone. As long as his name is glorified and respected at all times, I have absolutely negative qualms with this.

Then again, I’m not Christian. So yeah, I understand. But songs like Mary Mary’s “I’m Walking” in all of its inspirational glory in the name of the Lord… is the stuff that makes me wish I was.

Encouraging and uplifting music that reminds you that God is Good.
I think thats awesome.
Amen.

Since the Rapture is coming, I will prepare (celebrate?) with the appropriate musics.

Mary Mary is always appropriate.

Throw in some Kanye West for good measure:

….and Blondie by default. Shoutout to VH1Soul an’em.

Gotta get some Sam Cooke in…
