“The Power of Words” – by Author G D Grace

The musical landscape always moves at an  evolutionary pace. It functions  in perfect alignment with each passing era, leaving behind a trail of milestones and mainstays that  inspiring those eclectic few that  follow.
Gordy’s Motown was a finely-tuned catalyst that transformed many ordinary into global sensations, spawning one that became a phenomenon.

Was it luck, or just mystical destiny unfolding naturally? Did Quincy Jones, Rod Temperton, or the late Michael Peterson know that they would become creative components in a Thriller phenomenon? Were their minds subconsciously connected and plugged into that same transitional conduit when singer, performance, and visual aligned?

In the sixties,  Motown helped merge a racial gap; a feat that can only be deemed, courageous. The monumental moment when black fans moved from dark musty balconies and convened onto the main floors, they stood beside whites in musical unity. They finally got the chance to see, dance, and sing-a-long to the latest hits recorded by black artists together.

Some us know that music is partly responsible for the demise if segregation. The influential powers of the written and spoken word is undeniable.

What is the most highly celebrated and circulated book on this  planet?

It’s the Bible.

The underlying pulse of economy beats from rituals and practices that originate from the parables and passages within those sacred pages.  Were the writers driven and inspired to collectively contribute by a divine consciousness, or were they all just literary creatives?

Words are powerful.

  1. When I was 14 years old and Ray Charles was 16, our average night went like this: We played from seven to 10 at a real pristine Seattle tennis club, the white coats and ties, [playing] ‘A Roomful of Roses’ . . . From 10 to about one o’clock, we’d go play the black clubs: the Black and Tan, The Rocking Chair, and The Washington Educational and Social Club-which is a funny name, funkiest club in the world. We’d play for strippers and comedians and play all the Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson and Roy Milton stuff, all that r&b. It was a vocal group. Then, at about 1:30 or 2 a.m., everybody got rid of their gigs and we went to the Elks Club to play hardcore bebop all night long . . .
