  1. Not strictly a full performance but a short version of a song that holds so much for me, and the Sounds of Blackness original saw me through some dark times. This epic version with Wolverhampton's finest is a song for our times. Keep the faith , Stay Safe.
  2. https://www.facebook.com/jenniferhudson/ Jennifer Hudson delivered a lock down show on 24th March available on her Facebook page.
  3. https://www.facebook.com/kenny.bobien Kenny Bobien promising a Facebook show from home on 10th April,,free but accepting Paypal donations , to be honest he's on lock down in New Jersey and doesn't; look well . ! Stay in their Kenny .
  4. https://www.facebook.com/pg/bluebeatandska/about/?ref=page_internal This is a group of Dutch Ska DJ's who hosted a FB . boss Ska, Blue Beat Sunday night party to folk across the world . Pure class. I understand he does one every Thursday evening .
  5. Beverley Knight is doing something similar tonight Sunday 5th April 7pm via FB.
  6. apparently the 'link cannot be embedded ' yada yada .. so you''ll have to try access it yourself.
  7. I don't know if this link will work but Ive just played catch up on a half hour performance Natasha Watts put out from her home last night . It included her own material and some covers (Donny Hathaways Some Day We'll All be Free, Gladys'.. Your the Best Thing) and its a REAL lift. I guess there will be other performers doing similar stuff and Id value any suggestions or links. This is one of the best Ive come across , and in put from her cat .. !! You need to see this . Respect Natasha . https://www.facebook.com/NATASHAWATTSSINGER/videos/211478723453490/?fref=gs&__tn__=%2CdlC-R-R&eid=ARCkfwHwHdvwwjWtHKUwFe5oYs3ek8PnG2IdDBgK_dycPWyyMZQ-8W-i6OHNL7QY7A4_0UGa-hjmrqBh&hc_ref=ARR0UMbPrJjIe88E0Zdf_nHw-cg6faOS-di6eXPdJTN-taClvJWYAYhsRwCcAzCtmk8&dti=5244404732&hc_location=group_dialog
  8. A great idea .. and I'll look forward to catching it.. talc in the kitchen Id say !! There's lots of buzz about over coming social distancing and we are learning fast to be creative and flexible..( and a bit kinder ?!! ) in the face of adversity . Good on yer Bury . Ive just signed up to Zoom and hoping to educate myself on this technology for live feeds. Wendy May - who ran the great Locomotion nights at Londons Town and Country Club back in the 80's is putting out a Facebook show today from 5.00. The FA are putting out fully former FA Cup ties. Keep the Faith R
  9. I seem to remember this was a favourite at the 6T's 100 Club nights back in the day.
  10. John Legend ( and elsewhere Chris Martin who started the idea .. ) provided a unique heartwarming impromptu performance from his home , in his dressing gown , responding to live Twitter feeds from around the world. He starts with the great Stevie Wonder song Loves in Need of Love, a song for our times I sense. His wife Chrissy turns up .. in a towel.. and their daughter. lots of pro social motivational messages thrown in. Hope it catches on and might trigger DJ's to provide some virtual Soul Nights ?? Keep the Faith and Stay Safe .
  11. Amen to this .. a collection made in heaven. As you mention we should never under estimate the struggles Gospel artistes had to extend their musical and cultural boundaries and take the good word to the people without upsetting the orthodox churches. The Clark Sister's opened the door for the likes of Kenny Bobien and Kirk Franklin to come through . Keep the Faith.
  12. Is it coming to Europe. Looks right up my street.
