Tender Kisses

I recently heard Tracie Spencer's song, Tender Kisses on the Heart & Soul channel on +SiriusXM

It reminded me of when Tracie sung Tender Kisses with Darius McCrary (Eddie) on Family Matters.

Man, he can sang!!!  I'm gonna post another video soon of Darius singing.  Such a talent!  Tracie sounds great too.

I really miss shows like this.  How often do we get to see the stars of our favorite TV shows break into song and actually slay the song?!  And I'm not talking about Glee.
But yeah, I want to see more of that! 

Hollywood, get at me so we can create something beautiful together and start giving people something they can feel again!  These kids today need something they can look back on 20 years from now, share with their children, have fond memories and be proud of.   

Jam of the Week: Revolution

Do you want a revolution?!

#KirkFranklin is one of my favorite gospel artists!  He has brought the style of gospel music such a long way with his anointing and creativity.  I consider him to be a trailblazer.

I remember when his song, "Stomp" came out and many saints were upset because they thought it was "too worldly".  Just look at the gospel industry now! 

This is a great song and I'm making it my jam of the week.  I liked hearing it a few weeks ago on the Tom Joyner Morning Show too.

Remember when Kirk Franklin was on 'Sister, Sister'?  That episode was awesome! Check it out below and thank you to all the YouTubers who upload these amazing videos!

The Cast of A Different World Reunited

Oprah Winfrey reunites the cast of 'A Different World' to celebrate their 25th Anniversary. 

I am so looking forward to this!!!  'A Different World' is still one of my all-time favorite TV shows and I watch the reruns on +TVOneOnline !

I love that the sitcom was set at a fictional HBCU and it was a spin-off from 'The Cosby Show.'  It was also produced/directed by Debbie Allen.  When you have Bill Cosby and Debbie Allen working together, you've got yourself a hit!!

This reunion special will be part of the +OWN TV show #WhereAreTheyNow ?

Can't wait :-D

Here are some throwback pics and one of the best theme songs ever - performed by legend, Aretha Franklin.

Rest in peace Lou Myers A.K.A. "Mr. Gaines"

Book: The Dorkiss Way

I just finished reading "The Dorkiss Way" by +LaShanda Michelle .  It was a Christmas gift from my sister/brother-in-law and it was a signed copy!  I really enjoyed it and I even purchased another copy from +Barnes & Noble for my friend.  She liked it as well.  

I like romance novels but authors can sometimes go overboard with the sexual language.  One of the things I liked about "The Dorkiss Way" is that it has a Christian message.  

I had never heard of the author before but I was impressed.  I wish her continued success and look forward to reading more of her books, including the sequel - "Speak Now Or Forever Hold Your Peace." 

Here are some more books by LaShanda and you can also check out her website at:

Happy Father's Day!

Every year for Father's Day, I go shopping with my Hubby for our wonderful Dads and the other men in our lives.  We pick out greeting cards and try to find the perfect gifts for each one to show our love and appreciation. 

This year, I thought about just how blessed we are to have these great men to shop for.  With every greeting card and gift that we chose, I felt happy because that means the person is still here with us.  I cannot thank God enough for that!  

I look forward to more precious memories made and time shared with family this Father's Day and beyond...

~Hope you have a Happy Father's Day Weekend~
