Great clip but I did not know that he was a pastor. I first saw him on the Bill Gather Hour were he did the one about Amazing Grace.

I have since learn that you can play most hymns using the black keys only. Now thats amazing.

Yes, the Black keys are called flats or sharps Incidentals in European music, however in Afrikan music, ours, the Black keys, the natural minor and pentatonic are dominant. Especially in Gospel, Jazz and R and B.

Pastor Phipps is a graduate of Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama,( HBCU) Theology BA and Recieved his Masters from Andrews University seminary in Berrin Springs Michagan. Our alumni includes me, Take 6, Philip Michael Thomas, Clifton Davis, Theology, Sharon Riley, Take 6, Brian Mcknight, Chris Willis, Virtue and so many others.
Be Blessed

Brotha Jaycee, another great post.

Like Momma Brock noted (above), I did not know he was a pastor.

But Rev. Wright did talk about the pentatonic structure of black music. However, nowadays, artists like Soulja Boy have made our music diatonic. *SMH*

This was a nice, short snippet of a sermon. I got my church in for the week! I'll send my tithes to you later. :)
