[BOOKING] @TEDDYRILEY READY TO PARTY WITH YOU



The acknowledged "King of New Jack Swing," producer/songwriter Teddy Riley's enviable list of platinum-laced credits include Guy, the Winans, Joe (the Riley-produced "Stutter" topped both the R&B/pop charts in early 2001), Johnny Kemp, Blackstreet, Keith Sweat, Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Hi-Five, and Al B. Sure among many others. Born in Harlem, Riley grew up in the St. Nicholas projects. He began playing drums at three years old. At five, Riley picked up the guitar and the trumpet. When he turned eight, he began playing piano for the Little Flower Baptist Church. Later, he began playing in bands around New York. After meeting Kool and the Gang member Royal Bayyan, Riley was introduced to the arts of record production and songwriting. Hooking up with Gene Griffin in the mid '80s, Riley's many talents resulted in platinum hits for Guy -- the singing trio that included Riley and brothers Aaron Hall and Damion Hall. One of Riley's early production was Deja's 1988 Virgin LP, We Belong Together. In the early 90s, Guy disbanded and Riley formed Blackstreet with Chauncey Hannibal, Dave Hollister, and Levi Little. The self-titled debut album went platinum. Their second album, Another Level, followed suite and spawned the million-seller "No Diggity." Tiring of the rigors of big city life, Riley moved to Virginia, opening his state-of-the art Future Recording Studios in the mid-'90s

The Confident Woman Devotion




What's the Difference?

The Bible encourages us to seek understanding. Read a couple of good books on the differences between men and women and also one on the differences in personalities. If you do, it may prevent thousands of arguments or misunderstandings.

Women offer unsolicited advice and give direction, and men usually don't take advice very well. The woman thinks she is just trying to help, but the man thinks she doesn't trust him to make the right decision.

When a woman disagrees with a man, he takes it as disapproval, and it ignites his defenses. Men only want advice after they have done everything they can do. Advice given too soon or too often causes him to lose his sense of power. He may become lazy or insecure.

Men are motivated and empowered when they feel needed. Women are motivated when they feel cherished.

Men are visual creatures; once an image is in their head, it's hard to get it out. Women are more inclined to remember emotions or how something made them feel.

Seek understanding first, then speak.

Pray: Lord, I want to be a woman of wisdom and understanding. Help me comprehend why men are the way they are and how I can improve in my communication and friendships. Amen.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY-PHILLIPIANS 2:3-4

Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness,strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves]. Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his own interests, but also each for the interests of others. (Philippians 2:3, 4 AMP)

NEW MUSIC: @CIARA-LIVIN' IT UP

Ciara has had her fans (CSquad) working hard this past week attempting to unlock the cover art for her next single that she is slated to release entitled, Sorry. The r&b/pop singer, definitely has a great marketing team behind her, and most importantly a fan base that believes in her. Her new album, One Woman Army, is slated to be released in November, and I for one am intrigued, and ready to put my money up for this one. I have been a Ciara fan since she stepped on the scene. I must admit I miss the days of the Princess of Crunk R&B, but now that she has revealed the "10 Things You Don't Know About Me" which included being called that...I will no longer give her that title. I want to see where she is going with this new album, attitude, um evolution. I just pray it doesn't take her futher away from the connection she built with the die-hards from the beginning. Anxiously awaiting to see the "real" Ciara stand up. Check out a single that leak called Livin It Up. The uptempo joint is definitely worth giving a listen.

NEW MUSIC: TAMIA-STILL (COUNTRY VERSION)

Tamia has re-recorded and re-released her 2004 song “Still.” And she tapped star music writer Claude Kelly to help her re-record the ode to her husband, Grant Hill, on a country remix tip.
With Tamia’s new album Beautiful Surprise dropping on August 28th, the songstress released “Still”, a song she originally released on her 2004 album More, that was first produced by Jermaine Dupri.
This time around, she traveled to Nashville to re-record it with super writer Claude Kelly, who is serving as co-executive producer of her new album. And also brought in country music musicians to give the song a different feel.
The remixed version was explained by reps saying:
The idea for the new version of the record was to record it the way songs used to be done, one take all the way through, no punches, no auto tune or any other new technologies. Tamia and Claude Kelly assembled a group of Nashville country musicians, went into the studio, and had the band play the song live as Tamia recorded her vocals simultaneously. Tamia sang the song straight through 2 to 3 times and they kept the best take.
The romantic, country style version of “Still” will now appear on Beautiful Surprise. (Source)
