When we think of Women’s History Month we should be think of the strength that all women personify. I must say that Jill Scott is one hell of an example. The way that she writes a love song is comparable to no one else. Her songs take you on a ride that frankly you don’t want to get off of. Don’t believe me check out her VH1 Storytellers special.
She has recently put out new music and an anticipated album is sure to follow. The video for her new single, “You Don’t Know” is below.
She is a mother, singer, writer, actress, poet, and above all she is a poster child for Women’s History Month.
Some songs that did not make the top 10:
Hear My Call
Sometimes I Wonder
The Fact Is (I Need You)

Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite singer/performer of all-time is Lionel Richie. His music is timeless and incomparable. As a performer Richie doesn’t need dancers and all of the lights. All he needs is that voice and a piano.
As a young man, the world was introduced to Lionel Richie when he was the lead singer of the Commodores and in the early 80’s he decided to go solo and create many more hits.
Lionel’s music is so well liked, he decided to “countrify” his hits and made some of them better on the Tuskegee album. On the album, Richie teamed up with a few of country’s best artists and remade 13 of his and the Commodores’ hits.
Typically, I do a top 10 countdown and leave it at that, but because there are so many hits I have decided to do a top 10 for both The Commodores and Lionel Richie.
A few that didn’t make either list:
Just For You
I Call It Love

Kirk Franklin has been continuously putting out records that have inspired and motivated people of faith and even non-believers. In addition, he has had more choirs than I can name which keeps his sound ever changing. Tamela Mann, David Mann, Myron Butler, Isaac Carree, and others have all done backup roles for Franklin before having their solo success. From Dove Awards, to Grammy Awards, and Stellar Awards, Kirk Franklin has already become a legend in the gospel music genre and as a crossover artist. Not bad for someone who can’t carry a tune. The reason I like his music so much is because it is always modern. For example, he took classics like “Why We Sing” and “Something About The Name Jesus” and made them new while respecting their historical significance.
First, a few that did not make the countdown.
Silver & Gold
A God Like You
He Reigns/Awesome God
Something About The Name Jesus
- Declaration (This Is It)
- Melodies From Heaven
- Lean On Me
- Brighter Day
