Biography

The music of innovative artist Salah; a man committed to touching the masses and breaking down the walls of denominations and religions by inviting everyone to Christ. G-Soul is not your Mamma’s Gospel!

Songwriter/Producer/Composer Salah (meaning Righteousness) was born in Baltimore MD. to a Palestinian family steeped in the Islamic faith. Through his wife and daughter’s invitation to go with them to church, he met and accepted his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Today, he transforms the funky sound of urban R&B into the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. His debut CD, Jesus 101 presents a perfect balance of Gospel and soul, sure to nurture the touched and inspire belief into any audience. Salah’s G-Soul fills the gaping need in modern culture to celebrate life and divine love in an often-challenged world.

The GMA’s professional song critics agree, “Salah’s music is what the industry needs now.” Inspired by the vocals of Stevie Wonder and Fred Hammond, Salah has built his reputation in the music industry by opening for Rob Base, Biz Markie, Teddy Riley and Donnie McClurkin. He’s been featured on BET’s “Rap City” and “1801,” a D.C. show hosted by 95.5 radio personality Michelle Wright. Salah has created with production team The Newton Twins (Miseducation of Lauryn Hill) and producer Rich Harrison (Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”).

For the majority of his life Salah walked around in darkness. He found the light of Christ at Grace Church, where he served as praise and worship leader for four years before the Lord moved him to Atlanta. Now a faithful member at the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church (where Bishop Eddie L. Long serves as Senior Pastor,) Salah’s fervor and drive to share the joy of serving the Lord with the world keeps him an active member of the praise and worship team, men’s choir, and drama ministry. Salah’s love and inspiration on earth comes from his beautiful wife of 12 years and his two young daughters.

Lyrics

In Jesus Name

Written By: Salah Jalajel

CHORUS:
You ask me do I love you?
Yes I do.
What of your faith?
Lord you know it's true.
How bout your life?
I give it all to you.
I live according to your commands.
And what I do, I do in Jesus name.

Trials and tribulations you let me go through.
My diligence and faith are being tested too.
You're shaping and molding me into an image of you.
[The question] Am I worthy of what you've called me to?

PRE-CHORUS
Can't let my flesh take me over, dictate to me what is right. It's thru my spirit I do battle. With God I'm gonna win the fight. Without my Jesus there's no purpose. No purpose for my life. My only one and true desire is to be pleasing in your sight.

CHORUS

Lord, you forgave me of my sins. Took them to the cross you wiped me clean. Even bared my load, you took the weight of my world I'm free. And so thankful for your grace and all your mercy. It's amazing why you save a wretch like me.

PRE-CHORUS
Now my flesh take me over, try to tell me what is right. By your spirit I do battle. I'm guaranteed to win the fight. Now I have a purpose, to serve the Lord for all my life. My only one and true desire is to be pleasing in your sight.

BRIDGE:
All are called but the chosen are few. Every life has a purpose, it's true. When you're called, tell me will you answer?

CHORUS

My Heart’s Desire

Written By: Salah Jalajel

CHORUS:
I want to be next to you, you next to me.
All my life you are my hope, Lord, stand by me.
My heart’s desire is to be next to you, you next to me.
Order my footsteps, Lord, guide me.
Guide me Lord.

Lord, all I desire is your presence in my world.
More of you, less of me and I.
Put it all in your world, I give my life to you.
Please take control, I’ll obey.
I won’t move unless you tell me to.

PRE-CHORUS
In a world of mass confusion, overwhelmed with sinful life,
There will be no guarantee for the wayward and unrighteous.
There’ll be valleys, rocky mountains,
Walk through storms where there is no sight.
Lord, I need your keen direction, plan, and purpose in my life.

CHORUS

So many years in my life, Lord, I’ve been going all the wrong ways.
I still haven’t found the place where I belong.
Until I met you.
You are my firm foundation, my light and my truth,
My protector, my salvation.

PRE-CHORUS
In a world of mass confusion, overwhelmed with sinful life,
There will be no guarantee for the wayward and unrighteous.
There’ll be valleys, rocky mountains,
Walk through storms where there is no sight.
Lord, you give me clear discretion from what’s wrong and from what’s right.

BRIDGE:
You are my Shepard, Lord, please guide me.
You are my calm and you are my peace.
You are my serenity, you hide me from all my troubles and unease.
You’re my provider and the one who satisfies my every need.
There’s no one else but you that makes me feel complete.

CHORUS

You are my hope, Lord, stand by me.
Order my footsteps, please guide me.

Everything

Written By: Salah Jalajel

Jesus, my Lord, you are my savior.
You’re all that I’m longing to be.
You died for my sins that they be forgiven.
Yes you did.
Lord you mean the world to me.
Lord, you are my everything.

Jesus, my Lord, you are my savior.
My refuge in times of despair.
My cover, defense, my strength.
You’re the provider of my needs.
Lord, you are the song I sing.
You are my everything.

CHORUS:
Lord, you created all the air that I breathe, all the light that I see.
And the grass that is green, each and every tree.
It’s so amazing, Lord, the skies that are blue.
All the stars and the moon, you did it all, Lord, it’s true.
Lord you’re everything.
