"Just mello. A neo-soul, spiritual classic!"

CD is off the chain. If I had your number I would have called you to tell you so! Thanks for the CD, and a pleasure to have met you this past weekend in MD at the spot! You're going to be around for a long time to come!

"5 stars"

This collection of honest and personal gospel songs is laid out as a journey, a heartfelt documentation of one woman's struggles and accomplishments. Simultaneously embracing the past and leaving it behind, these tracks are stories of newfound hope and inspiration, beautifully cathartic in their approach to life and spirituality. Instead of dwelling on previous mistakes, the songs focus on looking to the future, to a life filled with confidence and encouragement. Her smoky vocals echo the thematic content of the songs perfectly, as her voice encompasses a conviction that makes these original songs that much more touching and appropriately sentimental. Musically, these professionally produced tracks are modern and mellow, hinting at soul, light jazz, and straightforward R&B. It works well with her vocal style, which is strong in its presence but laid back in its approach. While many gospel albums focus too intently on a universal appeal and end up sounding run-of-the-mill, Colon has proven that a personal approach is equally effective, if not more so. She sums it up in the second track, "Jesus Said:" "I'm on the right track now/ Love is by my side." - Brad at CD Baby

"I received Wisdom for healing while listening!"

Every single track my favorite! Absolutely a must have CD if you need an atmosphere of worship. In my quiet place, Jesus Said lifted my spirit and I heard the Wisdom of the Lord for my healing. - Linda Phillips


Jesus Said, 2007

Her love for music opened her up to all styles, traditional, contemporary, country, & Rhythm & Blues. Known though out the church community for her traditional, tambourine beating, foot stomping styles, this cd is truly a departure from a familiar turf. Dorothy invites you into her intimate time with the Lord. No fancy vocals, just pure, smooth melody clear lyrics, and a powerful message.

Her husband, Leo Colon whose musical career includes musician and music director for Grammy nominated Vanessa Williams, Anita Baker, Chaka, Pattie Austin, BeBe Winans, and countless others dedicated themselves to the expression of God's faithfulness in all. They produced this mellow cd to usher you into God's Presence. They also opened a church and named it "In His Presence." NY,

What kind of music is this? Will you do a holy dance? naah, will you need a tambourine? Probably not. Get a cup of tea, light a candle, or turn off your TV and put the CD in and just think about how wonderful it is to know that “Jesus Said! Or maybe, you are in your car and just want a smooth jazz sound, contemporary and relaxing for your journey, then put the cd in. Having a dinner party? It’s the perfect Christian cd for having couples over or just some friends. In a relationship? Looking for a good wedding song? "Thank You" a lovely duet by Dorothy and her husband Leo, who by the way has a cd coming out soon!

Dorothy has dedicated her cd to her Mother "Doris Ade' because it was her mother’s intervention on Mother’s Day that saved her life.

There is nothing more important in life than doing God's will. Every cd is not for everyone, but every gift has a right to reach its recipient, if it’s not for you, it’s for someone you know. Thank you for investing in our ministry.

God bless you! Jesus Said!
