Happy Birthday Dogs Video

Wow! So cool to have 78,000 hits on YouTube of the Happy Birthday song featuring dogs in birthday hats. You have probably heard it played at 4thFridays to celebrate recent birthdays of attendees. When we wrote this song back in 2011 and created the little video to go with it, we had no idea it would generate so much enthusiasm. Not sure if it's the actual song or the cute doggies that has garnered attention on YouTube. 🤔 Either way, God is so good!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylhwFx901O4&list=RDylhwFx901O4&start_radio=1

Hey Friends, Just a heads up - Rufus' new album - Takin' it to the Streets will drop soon. These are 5 cover songs with spiritual significance that have inspired Rufus over the years. Some of you have heard Rufus perform them at 4thFridays shows, churches and festivals. Songs include: "Takin' it to the Streets" by Michael McDonald; "We Don't Need Another Hero" by Tina Turner: "Coming Up" and "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney; and "If I Ever Lose My Faith" by Sting. I personally LOVE Rufus' renditions over the originals but I might be a little bias..:) Stay tuned for ways to listen. Can we count on you to download or stream and share the music? #TakinItToTheStreets

Song for the Moment - "Not Black or White"

Friends, as we deal with these global crises in our world – COVID-19 and injustices, let us not forgot who we are in Christ. We are bound to have differing opinions on various matters but our differences should not divide us. Rufus and I have started a new series called Song for the Moment. It will feature songs that fit the current climate in which we live. The first installment is called “Not Black or White” by Rufus Harris. It addresses segregation in the church. The fact that Sunday morning is still said to be the most segregated hour in our country, should concern us. And although this song for the moment was released back in 2003 to tackle this issue, perhaps it was intended for such a time as this. Please take a few moments to listen to this live performance at 4thFridays, share with others, and be sure to turn on the closed caption feature to read the lyrics as you listen to the song. The video is on both the 4thFridays YouTube channel and Rufus Harris’ YouTube channel. #SongForTheMoment #4thFridays https://youtu.be/vttp7dW6iwg

Jeff Nelson performing Trying to Remember at 4thFridays - March 2019

Every year on Mother's Day, I like to share this song for those who have lost their moms. It is entitled "Trying to Remember." and is written and performed by our good friend - Pastor and Spoken Word Artist - Jeff Nelson. Rufus and I were honored to provide the music/background vocals on this beautiful and touching tribute to his mom. Last year we were delighted to not only hear Jeff perform it live at 4thFridays, but to have captured it on video as well. Best enjoyed with headphones in and eyes closed. #TributetoMom https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqfvuQSlXds

He's a pastor by day and poet by night. Spoken Word Artist - Jeff Nelson performing "Trying to Remember" at 4hFridays.

This beautiful video features our good friend Jean Watson Watson. It was filmed in Northern Ireland and features actors and crew from Game of Thrones. The song was written in the 5th century and arranged by Jean. It's called "St. Patrick's Breastplate (Prayer of St. Patrick)". What a perfect song to seep into your spirit especially during this crisis! It will put your soul at rest. I pray it ministers to you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1OCffhjHYw
