The history of Christian music is not complete without paying a gospel tribute to the electrifying artist, Kevin Michael “Toby” McKeehan, known as TobyMac [a third of former DC talk].
Time and time again, the Grammy Award-winning family man has blessed us with singles, albums and memorable collaborations.
I still remember my "musical encounter of the first kind" with a TobyMac song, "Irene," the sterling composition, nominated the "Rap/Hip-Hop Recorded Song of the Year in 2003.

At that time, I was going through family pressures, with every opportunity gone, I thought it was over, but the song spoke hope to me.
Skipping the story in between, I fell in love with "Irene," and a TobyMac follower was born.
Putting the pedal to the metal with my write up, "TobyMac is back no slack."
He published his new single, "I Just Need U" on YouTube [it`s also available on popular streaming platforms], and I have it playing on repeat. Lyrically, it`s beautiful! I do know a good song when I hear one.
You can get it here but whatever you do, listen to it!
