There are so many things I love so much about good gospel music. I’m not talking about some half baked, half thought, poorly produced ramblings with bible scriptures used for chorus and verses and a choir singing off key. I’m talking about proper music. I feel like when you get a gospel song right, you’ve made an instant classic. Gospel songs are inspirational, easy to … Continue reading New Music: Travis Greene You Waited

I’m a firm believer that how we pass information across is more important than the information we’re passing across. The former, I believe, is partly responsible for the brick walls that debates on social issues keep hitting. Whenever the issue is rape, sexual assault, Kemen, feminism or even Biafra, people understandably get angry.
