By the rivers of Babylon

There is something about this song that resonates deep within me. It is a reggae classic, written in 1970, that has been remade many times over by reggae artists, gospel choirs and everyone in-between. This version is by Jimmy Cliff, a reggae legend, and it shows the up-lifting power of the song. It’s a song that is meant to be experienced, I highly recommend you sing along while playing it loudly.


Bonita is mixing for the Lord

I’m making a little music mix for a thank you at the church. Are you scared? Don’t worry, I can keep it clean. If fact I welcome the challenge, I’ve been wanting to make more family-friendly mixes.

My criteria was simple, I picked songs that open my heart and bring tears to my eyes. Good music has a way of doing that, there’s a reason it’s a crucial part of the worship experience. I’ve long used music to uplift and inspire, I’m honored to share some songs that move me and make my heart sing.

After the jump, three more songs to uplift you and bring joy to your soul.
