Singer Spotlight: Anita Baker

              

Anita Baker was the FIRST favorite singer. This video Sweet Love was the first video I imitated as a child. I was like 3 or 4 my mom and Grandma Mildred got me outta bed and this song came on and I went to town. Twisting and twirling everything she was doing.
   But I loved Anita Baker for more than that. Her voice is so amazing. Her songs take you through what it seems like a conversation. Her songs had meaning. You could put on her song "Talk to me" and get you point across without even talking to your partner the chorus is " What's wrong? ,Wrong with you, why don't you tell me what you're going through?"
      We need singers like Anita Baker singers who sing from the heart.

                  
                                Talk to Me

                
                  Giving you the best that I got

Not Giving Up



  I can't put into words what I have been going through this last month. I have been attacked in every area of my life. I was in a place of  i don't even know that's how serious it was. In a instant the people you thought you knew changed and the people you thought would be there is THE first to turn away. Needless to say no pillows, videos, or plans I had for the future were done. Lord, and it's only the beginning BUT God tonight  as I was playing songs of encouragement this came on and in the midst of crying and laughing determination came over me. I could either sit this out or fight. So I am fighting for my life and all that God has allowed me to accomplish!

Letting go and letting God have his way.
