Gospel Singers Bring Comfort Through Their Words

Gospel music touches the soul and sings about our triumphs and struggles. These artists are bringing that comfort in a time of heartbreak through their words.

“I NEVER thought I would have to march with my grandkids for equality and justice. We marched together today, so hopefully we won’t have to do it for her children. #blacklivesmatter #bettertogether#justiceforgeorgefloyd#wewontbesilent.”

“Music for the times ??”

[An excerpt from “Strong God” by Kirk Franklin. The video was released on June 1.]

We want justice, we want change (Want change)

You want peace and no more pain (More pain, yeah)

To be equal, to be free (Yes)

Martin’s dream is what I need, yeah

We want justice, we want change (Yuh)

You want peace and no more pain (No more pain)

To be equal, to be free (We wanna be free)

Martin’s dream is what I need (Yeah)

Just don’t preach the gospel

Be the gospel

“A childhood friend Lauren and her handsome son. I got teary eyed walking next to him, kept my head down because I am angry and disappointed at what we’re still having to protest against. Let alone a young kid has to fight for justice. Lord cover our children. #blackBoyJoy#BlackLivesMatter ? by Me”

“I need an earth shaking, atmosphere shifting, pray without ceasing prayer meeting to happen right now!

It’s time to cover our homes cities, churches and schools with Fervent prayer, binding the enemy and losing heavens army to fight in the spirit. Command every evil devil and demon and every unrighteousness spirit to go to the pits of Hell! 

Let’s cover the protestors, and those on the ground pushing to change the law. Those fighting for justice, yet moving in silence Pray for the victims, and for the fallen lives, broken families and ALL OF US.  #tired #soulhurts#fedup #blacklivesmatter. #praying#fasting

“Im a BLACK MAN!… I build…. I don’t tear down other BLACK MEN! …. I have felt the pain of being torn down and I have decided I will be deliberate about building others. If I didn’t tag you, please don’t be offended. I tried to pick ppl I thought would do this challenge! All too often, we men find it easier to criticize each other, instead of building each other up. With all the negativity going around let’s do something positive! Upload 1 picture of yourself… ONLY YOU. Then tag as many brothers to do the same. Let’s build ourselves up, instead of tearing ourselves down. ?? COPY AND PASTE OR JUST ASK AND ILL SEND IT. If I tagged you, don’t disappoint me!!”
