Doesn't music just lift your spirits? GRAMMY'S BABY! And other stuff.
February 09, 2009
Very busy day today. Started out hitting my former church, Bay Cities Community, because they had an 8am service and I needed to be in Hollywood by 11am. I just loved being there. It was like old home week, or going home to see the parents. Very warm and cozy feeling. Very welcoming.
I enjoyed being there, but also realized Church of the Beach Cities is really my new church home. However, will continue visiting here until after the Oscars due to my schedule. Plus, it's nice to see old friends.
My good friend, Dr. James Gambrell, invited me to attend his upcoming concert, "On The Battlefield For Our Lord," in observance of Black History Month. Tribute to Black Christian Music - An Evening of Spirituals and Hymns, on Friday, February 20, 2009 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm at Baycities Lomita Campus 2043 Lomita Blvd, Lomita, CA.
Come early and enjoy Southern style food and drinks from 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Sounds like a great evening. Gospel music always moves me. You?
I have so many good African American friends who are accomplished and at ease with who they are and race isn't an issue at all between us. That's why it always surprises me to meet people who use their race to play victim.
That same Dem who has no worries about all the tax evaders and lobbyists Obama has been selecting, was totally trying to say that I was responsible for the evil history of African Americans today when we were debating politics.
He obviously doesn't know who I am, who my friends are, nor the fact that I have a son who is half-black. What a victim! Get a life and stop blaming others. I thought Obama was supposed to wipe out this type victimhood, but I guess not. Maybe this guy needs some NLP reprograming. lol
In any case, had to dash off to Hollywood for training to be a press escort for the Oscars. It's super top secret so that's all I can say about that. Totally going to be amazing if today was any indication. Life is good!
Then dashed home and have been working on writing the press release and press kit materials for MB City Council Candidate, Kathleen Paralusz, ever since. She is extremely accomplished and I believe will really help Manhattan Beach, which is one of the cities I grew up in.
Hours later I'm finally done, but I'm oddly energized. Then again watching the Grammy's while I write surely helped. Music tonight was amazing!YEAH COLDPLAY! LOVE Adele too. Lovely Jennifer Hudson and oh so many more... Whassup with Chris Brown and Rhiana?
Okay, that's all because my hands are tired and I have a 7am meeting tomorrow.
I need my beauty sleep.:)
I'm so glad God created the concept of music, it's a beautiful component to life.
Although Pres. Obama is helping to heal the wounds of this country, one man can't make all things right. The only one who can do that is Jesus.
