"Just A Closer Walk With Thee" - Gospel This is a gospel song I remember singing a lot when I was a young boy and I still love the words and blessings I receive from singing it. Listen closely to the words and you will be blessed as well. I still have the old 78 rpm record by Tennessee Ernie Ford that I use to play over and over as I sang the songs on his album. It was the very first record I ever owned. I decided to try a blend of melody, harmony and a little humming on this one. I hope you enjoy my rendition. Raymond Warden "Just a Closer Walk with Thee"is a traditional gospel song that has been covered by many artists. Performed as either an instrumental or vocal, "A Closer Walk" is perhaps the most frequently played number in the hymn and dirge section of traditional New Orleans jazz funerals. The author of "A Closer Walk" is unknown. The song became nationally known in the 1930s when African-American churches held huge musical conventions. In the 1940s, southern gospel quartets featured "A Closer Walk" in all-night gospel-singing rallies. The first known recording was by the Selah Jubilee Singers on October 8, 1941, (Decca Records 7872) New York City; with Thurman Ruth and John Ford lead vocal; Fred Baker, lead baritone; Monroe Clark, baritone; J. B. Nelson, bass vocal; and Fred Baker on guitar. Rosetta Tharpe also recorded the song on December 2, 1941 (Decca 8594), with Lucky Millinder and His Orchestra.In 1950, it was a million-seller for Red Foley. In 1956, Elvis Presley set sales records with it on a 45 rpm single. An unreleased home recording also exists of Presley performing the song, made in Waco, Texas on May 27, 1958. Presley's studio version can be heard on Just A Closer Walk With Thee (2000) .Tennessee Ernie Ford made the charts with it in the late 1950s. By the end of the 1970s, more than a hundred artists had recorded the song. Lyrics Just a closer walk with Thee, Grant it, Jesus, is my plea, Daily walking close to Thee, Let it be, dear Lord, let it be. I am weak, but Thou art strong, Jesus, keep me from all wrong, I’ll be satisfied as long As I walk, let me walk close to Thee. Through this world of toil and snares, If I falter, Lord, who cares? Who with me my burden shares? None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee. When my feeble life is o’er, Time for me will be no more, Guide me gently, safely o’er To Thy kingdom's shore, to Thy shore.
"Lord It's You" - Deelyght Jaggessar This is another of Dee's (Heartsong7) wonderful re-writes and she had asked if I would join her on this Deelyght-Twist. She had already laid such a solid foundation and it was indeed a pleasure to tag along and give praise to our lord and savior, Jesus Christ. We hope you will enjoy our rendition...The original was "Only You" (and you alone) by Travis Tritt! Raymond & Dee LORD, IT'S YOU! Lord it's You! OH You're my very life! Since you came and turned my dark to light Only you and you alone can thrill me like you do You filled my heart with love for only you...

"Killing Me Softly" - Fugees (Please) click on the ballot box and enter my name "willis99" in the pm and nothing more! I appreciate your vote....You can only submit my name or vote one time! This is definitely a very unique and different sounding rendition from the old original Roberta Flack version of this song. Lauryn Hill with the Fugees is a wonderful artist and really made the Fugees complete, in my opinion. Most of you probably remember her from the Sister Act movies....and singing "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" and "Joyful, Joyful". This is my entry for the Semi-Final Round of hugkissesshoney Fans Club Fun contest (Genre: Rap-Hip-Hop) Raymond
