First Lady Michelle Obama Talks About Her Love for Gospel Music

The first lady of this country, Michelle Obama expresses her love for gospel music.  We suppose this is why we there are so many on her guests list to perform at the White House.  Although, we may not agree with her husband's support for same sex marriage, we know they believe in God, in order to face this racist country as black people. No doubt, First Lady Obama gets her strength by listening to gospel music in her leisure time.

Gospel music, Obama said in her remarks, is “what helps connect us to God, to that higher power,” according to The Associated Press. “For so many, when times have darkened, when there’s struggle, gospel music is that ray of hope and it gives you that strength.”

In the meantime, First Lady Obama is in our prayers.

30th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards Featured Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyonce Knowles-Carter: It's Not Gospel Anymore!!!

We were just thinking that the time has come for us to put an end to gospel music.   We do not think there should such a thing as gospel music anymore, because there is no longer a separation from the world. At the 30th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards the members of Destiny's Child performed, but we are sure God was not pleased.  One of the biggest reasons why this is offensive, is not just because these are music entertainers from the world, but-Beyonce is married to Jay-z who is an alleged Luciferian and so is she, allegedly, according to the following videos. If we can no longer keep gospel music holy, then shut it all down, immediately.  We want no more of it!!

Pastor Don Shelby Jr. and Family on 'Preachers of Detroit': COGIC???

We are going to start this post off by informing you that it's very wrong for this COGIC family to judge Bishop Corletta Vaughn for her position in the ministry and is not living up to the standard of pure holiness.  If you have been watching 'Preachers of Detroit', you will recall Pastor Don Shelby Jr discussing the name of his children's gospel group, 'The Shelby Five', (as stated on their church website, (Burning Bush International).  First of all, why do they have to model the name similar to 'The Jackson Five, a secular family group?  Why can't the Shelby children allow God to give a name that not only represents complete holiness, but also originality.  

To be honest with you, we've been holding off discussing the issue with this family since 'Preachers of Detroit' Episode 1, but we must finally give you our opinion.   Whenever there was a discussion in the presence of Bishop Corletta Vaughn or without her being present, First Lady Bonita Shelby allegedly mentions in her own words she believes in standing by her man, not being in the forefront. As a COGIC woman since she has such a traditional value as the first lady, why is she and Pastor Don Shelby allowing their children to perform in such a worldly fashion?

Yes, we watched the latest episode of 'Preachers of Detroit' and there was no anointing whatsoever.  Their children were stepping like they were in a nightclub.   We are tired of the hypocrisy of some COGIC people.   We sincerely think we would not have such a problem with carnality among gospel artists, if parents would stop supporting their children's contemporary music. God is not pleased and neither one, Pastor Don nor his wife Bonita, including their daughters can judge Bishop Corletta Vaughn being a female bishop, not unless they get their household right.   Their children do not represent a standard of pure holiness and it doesn't matter to us if they are being backed up by gospel artist, Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole. What we say about the Shelby's goes for her too, she cannot judge Bishop Corletta Vaughn's position in ministry, if her music or performance is not holy.

There children were singing about 'Tear Down these Walls Lord'.  They want Him to tear them down, they better pray for some anointing first. Furthermore, they don't need to be doing all this dancing with all the fatal issues they've got going on in the city of Detroit.  These children need to be getting serious, not half-stepping in God's Kingdom.

After 64 Years in Church Music Ministry, Dr. Margaret Douroux, Retires

Many of you who grew up on real gospel music recall Dr. Margaret Pleasant Douroux.  She sang with various gospel greats and has known some very well-known people in gospel music industry: Rev. James Cleveland, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Donald Vails, The Barrett Sisters and many others, .  

According to LASentinal.net,  Dr. Douroux was minister of music and adult choir director for the Mount Moriah Baptist Church of Los Angeles for five years and minister of music and choir director for the Greater New Bethel Baptist Church in Inglewood for more than 30 years.  

Many of you in this era of gospel music for the past 20 years need to appreciate those who sang under the anointing or else you would never know the difference.  Most songs that are sung today are not created under the anointing of God, because too many gospel artists are creating songs to sound like secular music to sell records, not call people unto repentance. We agree with Kirk Franklin, it's time for gospel artists to go back to singing songs about the cross.  It's sad that the younger generation today knows nothing about this great woman, Dr. Margaret Douroux.

You can see Dr. Douroux singing next to Donald Vails as he plays the piano while surrounded by various gospel music artists on this following video.
