Floetry Announces Summer Tour!!!!

Floetry

In 2002 I was a sophomore in high school and took my first school drama class. One of the assignments was to lip-sync our favorite songs to work on stage performance. Me and my good friend performed “Floetic” by Floetry, she the floacist and I the songstress. Something about the uptempo beat infused with Marsha Ambrosius’ electric voice and the swag of emcee Natalie Stewart had us hooked. Fast forward to three years later, I had the opportunity to see the duo perform at the Lyric Opera House and my fascination only grew. So when they split in 2007 I was highly disappointed. But five long months after a reunion performance in London they are now announcing a summer tour!

The tour starts out in Ohio and will span throughout the U.S.

FASHION FIX: DENIM ON DENIM

e6838ba9c8cdfdcc1b754fa065c651e5We’re in the midst of my favorite season and there is nothing I like more than being cute and comfy! If you follow Disclosed…you know that we appreciate comfortable fashions. I’m a sucker for denim. The thing I like most about this fashion staple is that it never goes out of style. You’ll always see it no matter the season and there are NO RULES! Frayed hems, ripped knees, faded and baggy boyfriends or high waisted; you can never go wrong with a pair of denim jeans.

My absolute all-time favorite is denim on denim. Who knew this style would double back full force being the most desirable and adventurous look of the season? Take a look at some of the pieces we think are fire and tell us your summer fashion plans.

NEW MUSIC: “CAN I” DRAKE FEAT. BEYONCE & SAL HOUDINI

Drake-Beyonce.

Following the secret release of his mixtape, Drake and Beyoncé have linked up again on a collaboration delivering “Can I.” The seductive leaked track features a sample of Beyoncé’s voice delivering minimum vocals but I’m sure we’ll hear more from Queen Bey on the official version. Drake ‘s OVO artist Sal Houdini is on the hook. “Can I” is rumored to be on Drake’s forthcoming album entitled Views From the 6.

Mid-Week Inspiration: I Can’t Live Without You

darrell walls

Your relationship with God is very similar to your relationship with people in that it takes work to keep the spark aflame. Right now I find myself falling in love with Jesus all over again as I experience who He is in new ways. Just about 2 ½ short weeks ago, we had hit a wall in our walk together but as soon as I made the effort to get that fire back between us, He poured His love on me in a manner I’ve never felt before.

I wake up with a hunger for the Word. I immerse myself in godly atmospheres. And as a result I am hearing from Him much more clearly. We cannot do this life thing on our own. We end up lost and confused. We need a greater power that has it all figured out because He created the world we live in.

We all are in search of wholeness. When you have a hunger and a thirst for Jesus Christ, He will fill you; not to the point of being stuffed and regretting your intake, but to the point of being satisfied. There is a sense of being pleased and feeling good after a healthy meal; not too little, not too much but just enough. That is how God is able to fill you when you are ready to experience Him.

Those who have not experienced this fullness question how others can have faith or be at peace in the midst of devastating circumstances. They do not understand the peace that surpasses all distractions and hardships. They may have a relationship with God but have yet to experience wholeness because they are not seeking Him fully. Maybe they have not come to the point of desperation that nothing else will do. Maybe they do not believe that a being they cannot see could take full control of their life for the better.

What I know is once you desperately seek Him, He will provide you a crown of beauty for your ashes (Isaiah 61:3). He will glamour up your ugly situation and make it work for your benefit. He will build your character and consume you with peace that assures you that everything will be okay. And because you believed, it will be.

The key to this rest, to being a whole individual in Christ is to indulge in His Word. Listen to inspirational teachings and music. Have people in your life who will pray with and encourage you. Where two or more are gathered in His name, God will be with them (Matthew 18:20). The power of prayer is so strong because it helps your faith to grow. For me, praying with someone else keeps my mind from wandering on what I’m going to cook for dinner, what time my meeting is, how much money I have in the bank. Find a prayer partner, I’m telling you it works (if you need one, email me at the contact us tab above).

I love all of our readers and I want us all to grow together. This is our purpose in life; to build each other up and usher in new believers to the Kingdom. Let’s rally to make a change in our world that starts within ourselves. Once we are whole then we can bring a nation together in unity. We can bring peace in the middle of chaos.

Please watch this video and receive God’s love.
