About this project
Birthing - Children of the Most High God
Birthing - Children of the Most High God is just that -- the bringing forth of a life that has been yearning to emerge.
Since I began my musical journey fifty years ago, people have asked for recordings at every iteration. From R&B to Jazz to Reggae (I did make one recording with Rolly Gray & Sunfire on which, I wrote and arranged the horn lines) to Commercials to Children's Television, to Praise & Worship, people have been moved by the songs. But, to date, there has been no record. Give or take the fiercely guarded cassette or the very rare video, unless you were there -- at the club, or the coffeehouse, or the church, or the coliseum, it's as though the music never lived.
Thanks to you, we are about to change that.
- The songs are written.
- The musicians and singers have rehearsed.
- The studio is waiting.
- The producer has given us the go ahead.
- Our first date is booked.
This project will help us --
- pay additional musicians and singers
- finish the recording process
- package the finished CD
- deliver your rewards
- and travel to Texas to launch.
When people have children late in life, other people often wonder why it took so long. "Was something wrong?" "Did you use birth control?" "Was this an accident?" Questions abound. In our case -- life & ministry happened. God opens and closes the womb and now is our time. We're not looking to start a music career, but we are looking to work out this part of our salvation and contribute our part to a growing body of praise. And we are more than ready to go through any doors this new baby opens.
This CD will be filled with wonderful worship, powerful praise, and defiant decrees declaring our victory in Christ Jesus.
Children of the Most High God will encourage you, challenge you and bless you. And for those of you who help us at or above the $250 level, your reward of the Write The Vision materials (books, video training) are sure to help you add your gifts to that body of praise as well.
Babies are not easy to deliver. And raising children is no small matter either. That is why we are so thankful for your help in birthing - Children of the Most High God.
When you make your pledge, your card will be authorized but not charged until the end date -- June 17. If we don't get the entire amount pledged by the end date, your card won't be charged and our project won't be funded.
Yes! Please pledge as much as you can NOW, but should you decide to lower, raise or even cancel your pledge (and we do hope you won't cancel) you can do so up until the end date.
We appreciate all support for the project, but we prefer that you make your pledges through the site for two reasons:
First of all, your pledge will encourage others to get involved.
Second of all, it is an all or nothing situation, so your pledge will help us reach our goal and get funded.
You might describe it as Contemporary Christian. I wrote most of the songs over the course of twenty five years. There are hints of a couple of public domain standards. There is one Traditional hymn with a modern flair. There is wonderful worship. There is a powerful praise medley with an R&B and jazz flair. All of it celebrates our growth and sonship in Christ Jesus.
