“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.

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…

    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 . . .
