Is It Me Or… Is Kim Burrell Wearing Lingerie in Her Music Video Out of Order?

Posted in Celebrities, Is It Me Or..., You Know You Wrong for This! with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2011 by holychick

Don’t know how I missed this one, but I saw Kim Burrell‘s Sweeter music video the other day and I felt some kind of way about her opening the video in white see through lingerie in a bed. WHAT!! Home girl has candles burning and the whole nine lol! Come to think about it the song has a sexy Sade vibe to it. I don’t know what Kim was thinking because that was not a good look especially in a gospel video. I know she lost weight and all, but cover up!

Even though I’m laughing I ‘m still a little… no a lot disturbed. Why the lingerie and the bed and the candles? It looks like a morning after scene lol! Don’t believe me check out the video.

Mali Music Debuts The Job Experience on BET’ 106 and Park

Posted in Celebrities, Music Videos with tags , , , , , , on October 26, 2011 by holychick

So big things are going on over at the Mali Music camp! Today he premiered the music video for his critically acclaimed single The Job Experience, now available for purchase on Itunes. The single will be on his sophomore album Mali is, due to be released January 2012. Here is a video of the video since the stupid BET video isn’t working.

In case you’re wondering what all the hype is about, let me bring you up to speed. Mali Music is a singer, songwriter and producer. Basically he’s a triple threat. While Mali has a very distinctive style, her reminds me of Tonex without the furs and the Village People costumes lol. What puts Mali in a class by himself is his ability to tell a story with a poetic flow that has not been done in gospel music, aka he’s not wack.  His lyrical composition musical production will have you scratching your head wondering how did he do that?  Mali Music’s music is slap your mama or someone else’s mama good! (jk I would never slap my mom and you shouldn’t either!)

Mali Music is well known in the gospel community for hits like Yahweh and Avayable off his first album 2econd  Coming. When Mali performed The Job Experience at this year’ BET Awards: Music Matters showcase, the music world was abuzz wondering who is this kid? Check out the performance here.

Since his appearance on BET everyone wants a piece of the kid now Akon has signed him to his KonLive Management company.

Everything was going well, and then this!!! Signed with Akon!!! WHAT!  To top it off click here to read what Mali said about being bigger than gospel! Tell me this guy is joking. I don’t know maybe I’m over reacting, you tell me.

Posted in Celebrities, Music Videos, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on October 26, 2011 by holychick

Erica Campbell of Mary Mary recently discussed her husband’s battle with cancer in her blog on Essence. Campbell, candidly described how she felt her world fall apart the day her husband called her to say the doctors found a mass on his kidneys.

Her story was a true testament of faith and God’s power of healing.

I just want to take the time to encourage all those who are going through. Whether its cancer, unemployment, broken relationships or loss of any kind, survival is the only option. Don’t give up because God is always fighting for you. God wants to take you to your promise land so you will not, I repeat you WILL NOT die in the wilderness! Keep the faith, you will survive.

Kierra Sheard’s Free Dropped Today To Rave Reviews!!!!

Posted in Album Reviews, Celebrities, New Releases with tags , , , , , , , on October 18, 2011 by holychick

Today Kierra Sheard dropped her much anticipated album Free! I heard all the tracks and its banging! Its definitely worth having in your collection. I am very hard to please, but I have to say I like all the songs. Track 6 Desire is my favorite so far. I hope she makes that her next single.

I admit that while I have always liked Kierra (she seems like she has an awesome personality), I haven’t always been a huge fan of her music. In my opinion she has always had one or two songs per album that I really liked, but the others seemed like throw aways or album fillers. I am proud to say that Free has no throw away songs or album fillers. Every song embodies that of an individual who has grown lyrically, musically, in experience and most of all in God.

While others are running around using gimmicks to sell albums, Kierra uses the anointing of God on her life and its the anointing that makes the difference!

Well done Ms. Kierra Sheard!

On October 1, 2011 Cory “CoCo Brother” Condrey and his wife Joann Rosario Condrey hosted the Stand One Body Campaign in Atlanta Georgia. The purpose of the event was for all Christians to join together in one place to lift up the name of Jesus and win souls for the Kingdom of God.

The event was a huge success! Thousands got saved and were baptized. Can you imagine that!? I’ve never seen a huge alter call like that much less that many baptism candidates! God is amazing!

Anyway some of gospel’s biggest artists were there ministering and here is a clipp of Kierra “KiKi” Sheard tearing up the stage with her latest song You Are off her album Free which will be released October 18.

She is doing it big for Christ so be sure to support her!

Wow! Meagan Good Talking Openly About Her Relationship With God!!!

Posted in Celebrities with tags , , on October 12, 2011 by holychick

I had no idea Meagan Good was a Christian! At least she sounds like one, even saying she’s celibate and wants her husband to be sold out for Christ! WHAT, I am shocked, but if this is for real then good for her. We need more Christians in Hollywood that will take a stand for righteousness.

Is It Me Or… Is Tye Tribbett Full of____________ (you fill in the blank)

Posted in Celebrities, Is It Me Or..., You Know You Wrong for This! with tags , , , , , on October 12, 2011 by holychick

So Tye Tribbett wants everyone to believe he disbanded his group GA because it was time for a change. Hum, I think that’s a bunch of crap! For those of you wondering why I’m going so hard on him let me get you up to speed with this dude.

Tye Tribbett is a phenomenal gospel artist who exploded on the scene with his group Greater Anointing (GA) back in 2004 with his hit album Life. Notable songs off the album include No Way and Everything. Following the success of his debut album, Tye Tribbett dropped 3 more critically acclaimed albums with his group GA, including the 2008 release of Stand Out which has one of my favorite songs ever, Bless the Lord (Son of Man).  There’s no question Tye Tribbett and GA were on their way to gospel icons until…

Early 2009 when it was discovered Tye was carrying on and affair with one of the members of the group. I’m not gonna go into full details, but you can check out the full story over at DaGospelTruth.

Anyway things went downhill from there for GA. Fast-forward to today, Tye Tribbett has a new album out called Fresh and GA… well they’re somewhere kicking rocks.

Recently Tye was somewhere explaining why he disbanded the group and he gave a lame answer that you can check out here.

I am not writing this article to bash Tye. I believe in forgiveness and if he made everything right with God and his wife then who are we to still hold him to the past. My problem is people using church rhetoric to hide their indiscretions. Saying God was bringing me into a new season, when in actuality you were caught up cheating with a member in the group is crap to me. Own up to your faults and move on or stop talking about it. Put don’t pass off garbage to God’s people. We’re a lot smarter than that.

Question of the century: If Tye Tribbett wasn’t caught cheating would he still be singing with GA?

Pregnant Fantasia Not Good Enough to Play Mahalia Jackson!

According to the NY Post, the family of the legendary Mahalia Jackson feel that 2 times pregnant and unwed (latest baby daddy can’t marry her because he’s still married to another woman) Fantasia is unfit for the role of Mahalia Jackson. In fact they claim that her hot mess of a life would tarnish Mahalia’s good name (how she gonna do that when Mahalia is dead). Check out the whole story here.

Fantasia, things ain’t looking that good for ya  girl. Should have closed your legs to married men (in a Nene voice)! Lol

 

Dorinda Clark Cole Suicide Attempt!!!!!

Posted in Celebrities, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on October 7, 2011 by holychick

Wow! When I came across this story I said yeah right, but after watching the video and seeing Dorinda admit that she did in fact try to end her life, I thought Lawd Jesus!

After seeing such and accomplished woman of God (who by the way has a new cd out called  I Survived) be so transparent about being so broken and fed up with life that she was willing to commit suicide, I started to think about my own life.  Truthfully, things have not gone the way I’ve envisioned.  In fact sometimes I feel like I’m living a nightmare. Everyone says trust God, have faith, it’ll get better.  Honestly its easy to say that when things are going well for you, but when you’re in the fire you don’t WANT words of encouragement, you NEED God to step in a save you!

Watching Dorinda on the video was like an awakening for me. I was like thank you, finally someone is being honest! Folks, when you become a Christian life doesn’t suddenly get easy. People feel like Christians shouldn’t have problems because we have God. We even go so far as to look down on each other when problems do arise because we assume that the person has sinned or done something to bring about the negative circumstances. Its almost like saying you’re bad and you deserve what you’re going through.  

I will admit that I did feel like God was punishing me for something I’d done. I cried out to God asking Him to reveal what I had done so that I could make it right and I heard nothing from Him. I fasted, I prayed, I sowed seeds, I went to deliverance services, I did everything I could to get God to answer me and show me His path for my life. Still nothing. I said God am I so rotten that You refuse to talk to me? I think that was the hardest thing about going through my trial, feeling that God had turned His back on me.

So when Dorinda said she was giving up because she wasn’t hearing from God, I truly understood how she felt. For a Christian, that intimate connection with God is our lifeline. Without it you feel hopeless, its like life is not worth living. But, right when the story was about to have a tragic end God showed up and He called her name, hallelujah! God isn’t only calling Dorinda’s name, but He’s calling my name and your name. He sees you at the end of the rope and He’s saying I have a better plan for you! God didn’t save the 3 Hebrew boys from the firey furnace, He got in there with them!

Sometimes the trouble that we face is not the result of sin or disobedience or somebody doing you something. It is simply God pruning us so that we will produce more fruit (John 15:2).  Its not that He isn’t listening to us or is ignoring us, but He is working on us. The pruning process may seem long, heck I’m still going through it myself, but God’s ultimate plan is to prosper us and give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).

So despite what I’m going through, I’m going to stand on God’s promises and hold Him to His word. I encourage you to do the same. At the end of it all, we can look back like Dorinda and say I Survived!
