On Sunday morning I had plans to attend church service, but for some reason I had a meeting of the minds with my activist friend Jonathan Perry the night before until 3 A.M. on how we could "change the world" and was in no shape to roll out of bed early on Sunday to make it to church.
Instead I woke up to Kirk Franklin's new video "Imagine Me" on BET Video Gospel. The song and the images in the video are beyond powerful. This is a song that carried me through a very tumultuos period in my life, actually the entire album got me through. By the time the video was almost over I found myself worshipping and having a beautiful experience with God in the privacy of my own room, minus the preacher, the 10,000 member congregation, and all the ladies in their fabulous church hats.
And I realized the best worship doesn't always have to take place in a building, but in your pajamas while you still have sleep in your eyes at the spurr of the moment.
I searched everywhere for the video but was unable to find it. So I thought I would share a classic Kirk performance from the 1996 NAACP Image Awards with Whitney Houston(when she was healthy), Denzel Washington, and Gregory Hines. Enjoy!
