I don’t let a weekend go by without finding some fresh, motivating gospel music to listen to. With the help of a feel-good Sunday morning sermon, high-spirited gospel music helps revive a weary soul destined to spend a new week navigating our doomed society and working hard to pay bills.
As reported a few weeks ago, Rapper T-Dogg produced a new hip-hop gospel song featuring Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother. I liked it so much I bought it, And with every potential hit comes a music video, this one released last week for the surprisingly well-done “Joy Comes In The Morning” track, which came out in August.
Travis Gammage, better known as T-Dogg, out of Deerfield Park, Florida, is rapping and hip-hopping his way to stardom on a different level from most mainstream fast-talkers. He’s gospel rap’s rising star and the mastermind behind the song.
According to reports T-Dogg was inspired after watching Sybrina Fulton interviews in the media, and has said he wanted to “step outside of [himself] and see what she would be feeling”.
Now, to be clear, Sybrina doesn’t actually sing on the song, but gives the intro, and then the outro:
“No matter what you do, always know God is in control. You must always stay encouraged and hold your head high. I am glad to know that my angel Trayvon is watching over me and a peace of my heart is in heaven.”
The track has a simple time-worn message, meant for those who have lost loved ones to senseless violence: praising a supreme being even through the hard times brings hope for the new day.
