Music discovery is fun; uncertainty the rule, surprises a guideline, like my playlist shuffle function, you can`t prophesy the follow-up track.
What`s playing next? Contemporary or Hip-hop? Praise or worship? Afro-gospel or Reggae? Andrew Bello or Andy Mineo?
The growing population of gospel songs migrated from old Christian CDs, gifted MP3 players and now, the independent states of streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music and SoundCloud) governed by smart entrepreneurs, my music library is no cul-de-sac.
So I waited patiently, previous track fading out, Spencer Annis`s song silently fades in, "Straight Up" (featuring Sarah Juers and produced by Chris Howland) was my piece.
Its instrumentation was crisp and wordings worshipful..." and you give me so much more than I could have ever imagined, so I`m giving it back. I lift it up cause you are worthy God."
