Bush observes Black Music Month with Gospel tribute

quote:
After listening to Gospel performers Smokey Norful, "Mary Mary" and Donnie McClurkin, the president told them, "You had me jumpin' in my seat."

Bush said the music of black Americans had its roots in the work songs of slavery -- and the "voice of faith lifted up to God." But he says it "speaks a language that all Americans understand."

I wonder if individuals like Tom Joyner, Ed Gordon, Tavis Smiley or Bev Smith mentioned this to their audiences. I have not heard any responses from Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton.

See, one more benefit for keepin' Condi in the White House--mixtape hookups. That W is somethin' else! [Razz]

Rem, care to share to the class why Rev. Al or Rev. Jackson need to respond to a free gospel concert? [Confused]

Notable omissions: R&B, soul, funk, reggae...and a lil' thing called hip-hop.

Black Music, Gospel, Reverends. Is the connection not obvious?

I think the concert was a good thing, but I guess when some folks dislike a person there is nothing they can do that won't be criticized [Roll Eyes] .
