Another song to lift up that precious and sweet name of Jesus; I love it.
There was something at the start that just seemed to be dissonant but I couldn't figure out what it was.
As I went over the beginning of the song, I think I found out what it was; it was some of the notes that the bass guitar was playing.
It almost seemed as if some of the notes being played did not belong in the key of the song.
Not to make too much of a negative statement about the musician playing the bass, I have found that too much of one musician's expressiveness can creep in can railroad the flow and anointing of a song.
I guess I must be willing to bare the flack from him/her for this, but I think that this is what happened here.
Other than that, I was blessed by this song, and the general arrangement.
I hope you are getting invites to get out and minister in song.
For the most part, I found my eyes closing and being wrapped up in a cocoon of His love as you sang your praise to Him.
At the end of the song, I felt a huge contented sigh being released from my lungs as I felt I had been in His sweet presence yet once again. Thank you for taking me there Melva. :)
Keep on singing for our sweet Lord, and be greatly blessed today,

The band is tight and the arrangement is sophisticated, and that fact is announced right in the intro, with the band playing in unison to a truly creative time signature. All the players are good, with the lead guitar shining. The lead vocal comes in after a few words of scripture, singing in a soul falsetto, a la Smokey Robinson. Unfortunately, he doesn't quite pull it off. The falsetto is pitchy and not quite sturdy enough to carry the lead, though he does have his moments of brilliance. The lyrics get lost in the band. The lead vocal would need to be mixed a little louder to avoid this, but I think it is already as loud as it can effectively go. It just ends up sounding thin. Then when the female vocals come in on the chorus, they too are pitchy, and it's even more noticeable when the band drops out and they sing a capella for a few bars. I like the hook, "Keep your head to the sky." This is a nice visual image, that goes along beautifully with the scripture the song is based on, and would actually make a really good title for the song. "God Bless You", although it is the purpose of the song, is a little too generic, and doesn't capture the song's essence as fully as "Keep your head to the sky." To sum it all up, your hearts are in the right place, and I pray God's blessings on your further efforts. I love the band and the mix. You have a lot going for you. Keep making music for the Eternal. Hope to sing with you one day, around the Throne of Glory.

more Beautiful song, congratulations, played well, nice bass, classic hip hop, it is inevitable to remind of of the great Tupac Shakur(R.i.p.). If I was the arranger for this song, although the market in hip-hop requires a certain type of overloaded decibels and a certain aggressiveness, I would have let this track breathe more, precisely because it has nice chords and a nice harmonic ride, perhaps introducing strings (as Toni, Toni, Tonè used to do in their beautiful song 'Anniversary') and why not, maybe lengthening the track with an extended remix, and also giving space (and that's my best inspiration in music) to the solos, maybe with a nice 80 years'-style moog . Anyway, congratulations.
