Video of the Day - The JOB Experience - Mali Music

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Mali Music is a gifted artist. We love his music .This song show us do not doubt. God works in mysterious ways. God is so AMAZING !!!












Mali Music isn't the first gospel rapper to write a song that tackles the controversial subject of unanswered prayers and the test of faith that follows.
But the Savannah, Georgia rapper/singer is positioned to be the first gospel hip-hop artist to have the support necessary to take his unconventional message mainstream.
Mali Music's video for his song "The Job Experience" premiered Tuesday on BET's 106 & Park. The song tells the story of a father who questions God after his mother is diagnosed with cancer and his wife is shot during a home invasion.
After the tragedy strikes the father vents to God, "I thought you would protect us, but you can't even keep us from violence and diseases. I really wanted to believe in ya, but I really need a reason to trust you after this one."
Mali Music doesn't consider the song's message to be controversial. "I believe the song and all the ideas in it will actually lighten the load and be fully embraced by the gospel audience," he said in an email to Yahoo! Music. "It exposes and directly states the things we all at some point feel and think. That outlet is actually relieving, and I expect it to be appreciated by the gospel audience especially since it all resolves to God's glory anyway. The bible doesn't get flack for controversy because the conflict in it is relevant. The same goes for the story told in ‘The Job Experience.'"
We all have seen these situations in our own lives! We have all been there. We have all been in our very own “Job Experience” where we feel like we have been deserted by God. But what is important is how we deal with our “Job Experience”. How will we let our “Job Experience” effect us. I hope you all are blessed by this song because I know I was!

Today was Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

First , We would like to say Congratulations to all that participated in the walk today :) 









Today , Thousands of New Yorkers  pledged their hearts and soles to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fund-raising walk .

The event, sponsored by the American Cancer Society was held across the nation, including walks in New York City, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey.


"Breast cancer is the No. 1 cancer that affects women across the country. These walks are critical because they're our vehicle for supporting the fight against this disease," said Jennifer Podoll, spokeswoman for the American Cancer Society of New York and New Jersey.

Organizers said 248,100 walkers in New York and New Jersey raised $18.4 million last year through pledges.

The donations fund medical research as well as free support programs such as Hope Lodge on W. 32nd St. in Manhattan, which offers no-cost housing to cancer patients getting treatment in the city.

"Since 1971, we have funded $338 million in breast cancer research. We have made significant progress, but we have a lot more work to do," said Dr. Alvaro Carrascal, a professor at the State University at Albany who heads the cancer society's public education efforts in New York.

He said breast cancer death rates decreased 30% between 1991 and 2007, but an estimated 40,000 American women will die from the disease in 2011.



The Making Strides walks are important, he said, because they helped raise the $82 million that the cancer society used to fund 220 breast cancer research projects in the U.S. this year alone.

Podoll said the cancer society doesn't have a fund-raising goal beyond making this year bigger than last, when nearly 800,000 walkers collected more than $60 million nationwide.


The walks range in distance from 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) to 5 miles, depending upon the location. Start times vary.

MLK Memorial 2011: Pictures From Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Dedication (PHOTOS)


Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.


~Dr Martin Luther King ~

An estimated 50,000 people gathered on the National Mall on Sunday for the long-awaited dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial, the Associated Press reports.
President Obama, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Martin Luther King III were just a few of the public figures who attended the ceremony.
"Nearly 50 years after the March on Washington, our work, Dr. King's work, is not yet complete," President Obama said in a speech at the dedication. "We gather here at a moment of great challenge and great change. Our work is not yet done. Let us draw strength from those earlier struggles."
A video of the historic "I Have a Dream Speech," which King gave from the nearby Lincoln Memorial in 1963, played after Wonder sang "Happy Birthday."
Sunday's dedication was originally scheduled for Aug. 28, the anniversary of the "I have a Dream" speech, but Hurricane Irene forced the organizers to reschedule the event, CNN reports.
