This past friday I got a chance to check out the live performace/listening party of Baton Rouge's own Jor'dan Armstrong. For those of you who don't know Jor'dan, you will, I say in about a year or two. Jor'dan Armstrong is a contemporary gospel artist who could run with artitsts like J.Moss, Toby Mac, Tonex, Detric Haddon & PJ Morton. I can't really say that he is what's missing from the gospel music industry, because to me and the thousands of fans he has acquired, he is already a household name. He has opened for Mary Mary at the House of Blues-New Orleans, Fred Hammond and has packed out solo performances in the South. Jor'dan has a very charismatic presence and his original material is mind-blowing and appealing to a very diverse audience. I really like the fact that Jor'dan doesn't allow people to put him in a box, he has been featured with both secular and Christian artists on various projects. With many of his vocals flipped with auto-tunes, Jor'dan makes Christian music cool and relatable, even though he doesn't need auto-tunes to sound incredible. I can't wait to pop in my CD of Champion! Have you gotten your copy? Among my favorites are the CD's title song, "Champion", "Sorry", "Where you Are" and "Echo". God has certainly given Jor'dan a swagger like no other with his incredible musical talent and unforgettable personality.

I am an American princess who grew up in Memphis, TN, was actualized in New Orleans, LA, was realized and validated in New York City. So if I could make it there, I know that I can make it anywhere. I am transitioning from my career in media to my career in law. What's crazy is, that my embellishing in media, proves to work to my advantage in the legal field. I am also an educated woman of color. I can be your heart's desire or your worst enemy. I am an ecletic homonogenous mixture of ethnicites, ideas and opinions.
I am a proud Christian who simply believes and does not seek to uncover supernatural-ness in the midst of my own mortal natural-ness. I BELIEVE!!!
