So I'm doing a gig at the M Bar here in LA. Playing for Sharon Youngblood (www.myspace.com/sharonyoungblood) and we're playing Beyonce's "Dangerously In Love". Have you ever paid attention to the lyrics of that hook? I mean, Sharon's music is very "inspirational" (Thats the "politically correct" term for it. . . ). Aiight, enough with the quotation marks and tryin' to hold back. . . God speaks through Sharon's music, and she ministered tonight through song. In the club. lol. And if there was a person in that spot tonight that didn't feel that anointing at one point or another (you know, that tingly feeling that you couldn't explain) they must not have a heartbeat. So as us church folk say, the Spirit was in the room.
