Got Gospel Reggae?

To tell ya'll the truth, I'd just gotten word on Gospel reggae. I'm late huh? Better late than never. Any way I'm proud to hear other genres of music that bigs up the The Word of God. Papa San, featured above, was a secular artist at one point but he turned his life to God and dancehall reggae expanded its horizons. Papa San is said to be instrumental in forging what today is known as Dancehall music. His latest album Real & Personal have some bangers.

Alabama's legislature voted on Tuesday to clear Rosa Parks, and many others, arrest records for disobeying the segregation-era laws from 50 years ago. Wow. But doesn't it make you wonder, why so long? I guess now is better than never...


For other tidbits, the wonderful Creflo Dollar was on TBN last night, and this morning. He just wanted listeners to know that we need to become pregnant with the knowledge of God's word in order to see his manifisations for our life unfold. Amen
