Wednesday Thoughts: Life, Love, and Music (Check Out the Videos)


  Music is my life, my passion, and my love.  I've been singing since I was a child.  I started taking piano lessons at the age of 5 and even majored in music and obtained a Bachelor's degree in music in 2009. 
  Many people ask me why I chose music. Well, Music is a universal language that reaches everyone.  It touches the very soul. It brings people together. I'm like Patti Labelle, Music Is My Way of Life.  Music is the way I am.
  That's why I'm so adamant about furthering my music career and furthering my passion. I have great plans for myself. I would like to do workshops as well as act as well.  Hell, I want to finally live my dream.  If I don't do it, who else will.   Below are some samples of some covers that I've done. Let me know what you think.

Strength in Saying "No"

  Recently I had a situation in which someone called me "weak" just for saying no to a proposition that could land me in a lot of trouble spiritually and could really mess up my life. That often happens in life whenever someone offers us a deal that sounds too good to be true or when we are in relationship and someone wants to sample our tasteful nectar saying no will make them mad and cause us to seem like a punk, wuss, or weak. However,  I've often found that saying "no" is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of us being stronger than what we thought.
  Saying "no," will also allow you to see who your real friends are.  Whenever a person asks you for a favor and you really can't help them and you say "no," their reaction and actions will say a lot.  If they say "I understand man. You're always there for me," they are very understanding. If afterwards they still hang around you and end up giving back to you for what you've done for them, then they are for real. However, If they say "Why can't you help me? You're full of it," then it's time for you to run away from them and leave them be.  By you saying "no,"  you have just eliminated your parasites.
  Again saying "no" means that you are stronger than what you appear to be.  Even when it comes to people attempting to tempt you to do dangerous stuff "no" expresses your integrity.  Remember your "no" shows strength.

Still Two Americas by Ben Sargent


This Too Shall Pass Away

  There is a song by the late Phyllis Hyman that says "This Too Shall Pass Away."  These are words that I live by. I do believe that the current storm that I've been in shall pass away.
  Here lately, I've been feeling a bit over worked and stressed out and wanting some personal changes. I've also been grieving also with the calamities of the world. It can be a bit overwhelming.  All I can do is pray and try not to focus on it. I do believe that this too shall pass away.
  It seems that at every turn there is something to piss me off or someone to get on my nerves and not let me be to my lonesome. Even my own, Love Interest knows I need my space. However, he is very supportive at this time as he helps me prepare for an even in Atlanta this weekend.
  I just need to really get away from it all. This weekend will be a weekend of rest and working on some things for Musique. I really need to  just take more time for me.  I refuse to die of  a stroke, heart attack, or nervous break down.
  This too shall pass away.
Love ya,
Musique

A New Day, A New Week


    It's a New Day and a New Week. What will you do with it? Will you spend it regretting and worrying about missed opportunities?
  It's time to start fresh and to continue on. It's time for you to aim high for your dreams. Speak positive things over yourself. Don't stress yourself. It may be, Monday, but it's a new day for new opportunities to arise in your life!!!
Love ya,

Sunday Dinner

  Hey Guys,
 I pray that you all had a wonderful Sunday.  Mine was great and I enjoyed every bit of it. I spent the day with my Grandmother, Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, and Nephews as well as my Dad.  It was restful!!!
  I had a great dinner and I had a peaceful day of movies and smack talking with the Suber Clan. It was a joy for me because lately, I rarely have time for Sunday Dinner with the family.  Growing up and even before I graduated from college, Sunday Dinner was a staple in my upbringing and even into my now, adulthood. T
 Thank God for Sunday dinner. I can't wait to start my own family and continue on the tradition,
Love ya,
Musique

Rest in Power: Robin Williams

   Wow, I am shocked and saddened at the passing of iconic actor, Robin Williams.  This is too much. Many of you know him as "Mork" from "Mork & Mindy," "Mrs. Doubtfire," and "Jack." We even loved him as Genie in Disney's "Aladdin." 
  I'm not going to go into specifics about his death, but just keep his family in your prayers. They really need it.
Love you, Mr. Williams. Your legacy Lives On.

You're Free, Genie

Relaxation Time

  After a hard days work I find it necessary to come home and relax. I hadn't done much blogging yesterday due to a death in the family.  The last day and a half have been stressful.
   Dealing with crazy people at work and more stress on top of more stress, I think it is time for Musique to relax and to clear his mind for a while.  Trust me it is much needed.
   I'm also trying to figure out what direction to take this blog. I have a lot that I desire to become of this blog. I guess I'll just have to pull some trial and error and see what happens.
Love ya,

Is the World Ready For An Openly Gay Gospel Artist?

   Is the World ready for an Openly Gay Gospel Artist?  I have been asking this question for quite sometime.  When I ask myself this question I think of one of my favorite singers, B. Slade and his transition from Tonex.  
  His coming out and transition to R&B, really rocked the Christian world and the God heads really threw shade upon him.  However, have you ever noticed a lot of feminine, yet closeted male Gospel singers who are singing the gospel? Not to mention when Famed Pace Sister, Dejuaii Pace admitted to being a lesbian, I felt that a door was open for openly Gay Gospel and Christian artists. However, its not so much as the world, but is the CHURCH, ready for an openly Gay artist? Although we have a lot of Gay friendly and Gay Affirming Ministries, is there room for an openly LGBT artist?
  It's nothing new on Sunday mornings to hear anti-gay rhetoric and the shame is that you have fellow LGBT, open and down low, bashing other gays.  Let's be real, if it wasn't for the Gays, Lesbians, and Trans-people, there would be no choirs, ministers, pastors, ushers, or anyone else in the church. For years, we've had a presence in God's house, but because of man's stupidity, they made it seem so wrong.
  Even as a child, I knew that there had to be gay people in the Gospel industry.  I'm sure you've heard the horror stories of the late Rev. James Cleveland and many other Gospel singers being gay and turning the kids out allegedly and even dying of AIDS related complications, but I never felt as if one's sexuality was a big deal.  I always felt that if you carried yourself in a Godly way then you were qualified to do the job. Why does who someone chooses to sleep with behind closed doors matter? So much of the world especially in the Gospel industry say "its okay to be Gay, but stay in the closet. You may corrupt our kids and family." Some may even say "oh he's just feminine." We all know that Brother Tay and Pastor Gray are getting it on behind closed doors.  NO SHADE INTENDED.
  Not only is the world and Church ready for an openly Gay Gospel Artist, is The Openly Gay Gospel Artist, ready for the world?

I Have No Life

   Today, I took a moment to examine my life. I've come to the realization that I have no life.  All I do is work, church, and come home.  Yes, I've entered into a new relationship and I'm working on my first album and relocation to NorthWest DC, however it seems that there is just not enough time.
  I try to make sure that I enjoy life, however, it seems to piss people off whenever I take time for myself. Granted I spend time working on this blog and trying to make it work for me so I won't have to punch a steady 9-5 and I also try to spend time clearing my mind however sometimes I just feel like I get burned out!!!
  Sometimes I just want to scream!!!
  I'm almost 30 years old (2016) and I feel like I'm behind.  While everyone is buying their dream homes and married, I'm still dating and still trying to get half of what they have.  I feel that I have no life. I feel that I'm in danger of being unaccomplished.  I see that people that are younger than me are further ahead of me.
  It often makes me wonder "where did I go wrong." I guess it's just one of those crisis that we all face in times of great stress and pressure. I just pray that something major happens before I turn 30.
  Grrrr.

July 1st: 2 Months and Counting


  Well, It's the beginning of July and hopefully the start of my last 2 months. I've had some minor setbacks. For starters due to my roommate moving in with his boyfriend, I had to move back in with Uncle Dearest. Lord, Be a Xanax and a Fence. I know this move will help me save more and help me better prepare for the Move to DC, but I just can't deal with the craziness and stupidity that Uncle Dearest brings. 
  However, the count down as began. I'm asking that if you stop by and read this post click the widget above or go to http://www.gofundme.com/destinationdmv to help Destination DMV become a reality. I'm ready to go, but I realize that business here must be handled first.
Love ya,

Change is Necessary

      One thing that I've learned in life that is constant is change.  Change means that everything shifts, becomes new, or holds a new position.  Change may not always be how we want it, but it is necessary.
  Change may not feel comfortable, but it is necessary. Change may mean we loose some friends and loose some possessions, but it is necessary.
Change is necessary.

It's So Close


   WOW 3 months and I will be moving. I want to thank those who have contributed so far to Destination DMV (Click the Widget Above and Highlighted Title). I'm kind of antsy because in the preparation process, everything that wants to happen is happening, however, I do believe that all things will work out for me at the appointed time. 
  I'm anxious about leaving my family but also starting a new chapter in my life and more.  I have big hopes and dreams and I am to reach them. I plan on furthering my music career and I also plan on achieving some goals in the entertainment industry. Its so close I can taste it,

Life Gets Hectic

  I know many of you have been feeling like I've been neglecting this blog and you, my faithful readers, but life has been hectic for me. With work and recent church events. Then also I've had a lot going on with family. I'm glad to say it's finally toned down for me and I'm glad about it.
  Life gets hectic sometimes, but you must always remember to take time for yourself. That's why tonight I'm spending some me time cleaning and going to the gym. God knows I haven't been in a forever. Then after the festivities, I'm going to get a good nights sleep. I love being me. Don't you love it too?
