Happy Birthday to Bobby Caldwell ♛

Bobby Caldwell was likely destined to be an entertainer. The son of Bob and R.H. Caldwell, longtime singers and dancers who were also the hosts of an early TV variety show, Suppertime, he was raised in a world surrounded by great entertainers and classic music. Exposed by his parents to opera, jazz, swing, blues, folk and other popular forms of music, he developed an early appreciation for the different architectures of various types of music — an appreciation that would later help him to move from soul to adult contemporary to smooth jazz to big band sounds during his career.

Singing Group, The Walls Group

The Walls Group is a singing group who, to my knowledge, have been in the game for a while (almost a decade) and I have mad respect for their hustle, grind, and gift. Ya’ll know how much I love soul music, and lately I’ve getting into gospel music. I love the idea of singing/ serving God through music and being able to touch others or get through to others through the gift of singing. In their interview with Terrell in his show Song Association On The Blue Wall, he asks the group “How do you know if God is real?” and his response that “Just the fact you have breathe in your lungs, that’s God; God is life” really struck a chord for me. As a little girl, I remember I always being fond of church choir that their new found presence within the music industry feels almost like nostalgia for me. The Walls Group, take a moment to check em out if you can and let me know what ya’ll thoughts are.

Peace & love.

Preach by John Legend

Yet another song with great melody and message.
In the video, it appears that he addresses the social injustices
that we see happening with the law in relation to society today.
Word means nothing with no action.
Legend will always have my heart.

♪ I can’t sit and hope, I
Can’t just sit and pray, that
I can find a love, when
All I see is pain
Falling to my knees
And though I do believe
I can’t just preach, baby, preach
Whoa, oh
I can’t just preach, baby, preach ♪
