Thursday Thoughts: Stand The Shawn Mac Project

Written by: Gregory Gay

In light of the fact there is a new Shawn McLemore project out this week and because there is a chance that you might have missed this project in 2010, we thought it best to put it on spotlight.  As a preface, I would have to question how one listens to CD’s.  Do you skip all the other stuff and give a good listen to the song you heard on the radio (does radio airplay even work these days) or do you listen from beginning to end?  However or whatever your method, I am sure that Been So Good got your “churchy-fied” attention.

Let me add that it’s a good thing that  Been So Good was not the first track, because you would never finish the CD.  Once you hear it, you are instantly caught up in it (you grab a tambourine, get a couple friends to clap while you dance, pass out, call for the ushers, have your friends  form a circle around you until you fall out, then get a sheet to cover you (is this the sanctified church?) or stand over you fanning until you get back up,  get some water,  sit in your chair, think of God’s goodness  and then it hits all over again).  This would be classified as a definitive project and while it is long overdue, it was well worth the wait.    If I Have the Faith, There Aint Nothing, Overflow and God is Good are nice cuts too.
