Music · Sounds Of Blackness · Optimistic †&♥
Have loved gospel music since discovering Andraé Crouch in my teens. I didn't know it then but there is a strong gay participant in the African-American art form from where so many incredible singers have been drawn.
Sounds of Blackness are from from Minneapolis/St. Paul -- same place as Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Prince.
'Optimistic †&♥', written by Jam + Lewis, is from their funky high charting point in the early 90s. It seems real for my relaunch of blogging :]
Watch/ listen to a live performance of Optimistic / Hold On (Change Is Comin') after the jump » »
