Anywho! Canton Jones is at it again!!! The Official MY Year videos is available on YOU TUBE! But I decided to bring it to my spot for your viewing pleasure!! MY YEAR features Canton Jones, Ramona Jones, Milliyon and Erica! Check out the shot of the Jones Family! Peep the very end of the video… you know see why, when you do it… All in all, I believe quality wise it was okay. The message was great of course, I do however believe that it could have been a little better quality wise but it was great overall in my eyes. If you a Canton Jones Fan like myself, anything from him is good to you! Overall, LOVED IT! I want to know how you felt about the video so make sure you leave your comments below!

On another note, it has been buzzing around the twitter world that our lovely songstress/psalmist Kim Burrell will be releasing a secular cd! I know I might get bashed for this one, but I AM EXCITED! Its about time we bring the world to us! I believe she has been given a mission and this phase of her career in the industry, she will do just that. With her doing a secular album, this does not mean that she will be doing raunchy or out right defying God in her music! Plus let’s be real, the Married Christian needs something to listen to! Congrats Kim!!!

Well that’s your inside scoop from Ms.TMarie!
Hey all you faithful readers!! This will be a double feature! Not only will be review the Canton Jones concert from Sunday 8.23 but it will also feature the release of CaJo and the fam’s latest cd entitled ” Kingdom Business II”.
This Sunday was action packed with a full line up of local artist setting the stage for Canton at DWO’s The Vault.
Detroit’s Bro. Dre mcee’d the event has everyone on their feet ( literally) all night long. Even had an entourage of youth and young adults on the stage!
Canton hit the stage and the fans went crazy! It was great to see him back in Detroit, indeed to long of a wait…
He ministered his like ” Holy Ghost Girl”, ” Love” and new hits such as “G.O.D.”, “One Mic.. ” from his newly release album “Kingdom Business II.
I even got an opportunity to kick it with him for a minute! Missed my big bro!
Overall, Great Event MustardSeed Generation!
Now on to the review!
In my all honest opinion, I truly believe that this cd should have released at the beginning of the summer. YES, you have guessed it.. ITS A BANGER!!!
Songs like “Echo”, “Swaggin” and “5 Seconds” will play on REPEAT on your ipod or stereo! The production quality on this cd is bananas..This cd is giving mainstream a run for their money, indeed its time!
CaJo placed a spin on the classic “Great Things”, which is guarnteed to get every person young or old up and dancing, praising God for the great things he has done for them.
Canton Jones song entitled ” Top Model” is what I like to call a secequal to ” Holy Ghost Girl”. The song expresses how God loves and sees us as his Top Models and how even the fellas see the Women of God as true Top Models. This song really expresses the things that God sees in each and every woman but from the personal view of the Man. GREAT STUFF!!!
I dont want to spoil the cd for those of you who haven’t gotten it yet.. its most definetely a BANGER! Please GO COP IT!
This past week has been really hectic for me, but in a good way. I have had the opportunity to attend the Bold Right Life Conference at Greater Emmanuel Instiutional Church of God In Christ hosted by none other than Detroit’s own Kierra Kiki Sheard.
The conference featured some of gospel Music greats, Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Holy Hip Hop Artist Mr. Dell and Tye Tribett. Along with Prophetess Janice Floyd and Pastor Jonathon Miller.
This week I was only able to attend two nights the Saturday night concert featuring Detroit’s own, Kierrra “KiKi” Sheard , 21:03, J Moss, R&B and Jazz Diva Lalah Hathaway and Gospel Music great, Donald Lawrence.
The first night started off with Bishop Hezekiah Walker as he ministered on having a Cry in your spirit and not holding in your Cry but letting it out. Mr. Dell minister the same night, hyping the youth to live on fire for God. Had everyone doing
The Third Night was filled with worship as Min. Tye Tribett hit the hearts of the people with a life changing sermon, encouraging attendees to take a stand and GET SET in the things of God. Don’t weaver, let others detour you away, GET SET. Tye even amazed us as he handed the microphone back Kierra, hopped on the organ and rocked it out with the band. The night ended with a shed featuring Tye and the conference band.
Youth were surrounded around the shed with camera phones tapping this monumental moment in their lives!
Saturday nights conference was indeed great! Although it started later than expected, God’s presence was sure on time. With Praise and worship laid by Detroit’s own Shana Wilson ( PLEASE GO AND GET HER CD.. REVIEW TO COME) singing songs like my personal favorite ” Press In His Presence”, with opening acts from the Detroit as well as Chicago area. PAJAM’s newly signed hip hop artist, Chris Clark took the stage with “Walk on Water” ( great to see you again little bro), 21:03 hit the stage with their hits ” You” and my fav. “Cover Me” with group member Evan leading the congregation into worship.
Just when you thought the PAJAM camp was through, J MOSS hit the stage with peep this, Karen and KiKi on backgrounds! Can we say a true treat! It in deed was a family affair! J Moss sang songs from his cd that will be released on 8.25.09 “Just James”, “Restored” as he told his personal restoration testimony & many others.
Just when you thought the night was whining down, Lalah Hathaway hit the stage requesting to perform with no shoes on. She has been singing barefeet for 20 years now! WOW! that is a long time! She talked to the congregation about how she knows singing is her calling and this was the are a of ministry God had call her to do, in her own way. Now readers, this does not mean she is going Gospel. She sang a song written by Donald Lawrence that was truly a gospel track and then did a lil improv with the band singing “Summertime”.
Congregants stood all around the sanctuary. Truly an experience for all!
Kierra took the stage after Lalah jokingly asking her father if she could take her shoes off too. Maybe she can sing just like Lalah! The crowd laughed. She sang “Wave Your Banner”, “Love Like Crazy” and tear jerker ” Invisble” with the crowds participation.
The BRL choir ended it out singing background vocals for ” Invisible” as well as singing with Donald Lawrence on ” The Law of Confession” and “Back to Eden”.
Overall , The BRL experience had everyone hype and it truly was a treat! Thanks Kierra for another great and anointed conference. Many lives were set free!
