Inspired by…

As I am working on my music ministry, I have to continue to be motivated.  So I seek out independent gospel artists and find out any information that I can.

Today I am inspired by Kenny DeShields.  I first heard of Kenny on Gospel Pundit in the Pundit Player with the song “I Thank Ya Lord”.   I honestly wasn’t feeling the song that much at first, but my husband would play it all of the time.  I really started to think about the words and that song grew on me.  Now I can’t stop singing it.

So today I happened to be doing a little searching on the net and I came across an interview that Kenny DeShields did on Finding The B-Side.  He said something in the interview that confirmed what the Spirit of God told me to do a few weeks ago.  The Spirit gave me the idea of setting up my living room like a concert area.  It would have a stage, a few chairs, my keyboard (even though I haven’t played it in years), a microphone, etc.  Sounds weird???maybe, but I found it funny that DeShields did something very similar.

Anyway, here are a few things that I learned from Kenny DeShield’s interview.

  • Have a concert at home by yourself – K. DeShields  had “Tonight At Kenny’s” every once and a while with a full set list.  He did this about two years before he stepped out and shared it with others.
  • Having a support system is important – you need to have others around you who can pray for you and encourage you.
  • Educate yourself about the music industry – Start reading books about the music business and entertainment law.
