This song can really reach in to you, can't it? ..It awakened a part of me that I didn't even know was dormant. Damn, thank you.

They don't make tracks like this anymore...seriously. This reminds me of being a little kid in the 90s, being driven around in my parents car, and this song would be on the radio playing from WAMO 106.7 (shouts to Pittsburgh) on a Sunday afternoon. I miss when R&B had this vibe...

Check out this video on YouTube: You can't see up When looking down It's easy to count all the misfortunes that life will leave at your doorstep To get to the other side, you must go through and weather the storms of life. Lord knows, I have been through and still going through. It's not easy but it is necessary. It is in the most difficult of times that God carries us through........ Keep your head up!

Now this is funky church music that reminds you that there is a god, he is good and he will walk with you no matter how bad things may seem. uplifting tune with lyrics worthy of a psalm. God bless the sounds of blackness !!!

Grammy award winning SOB from Minneapolis really took the charts by storm in 1991 with their brand of Gospel, the album Evolution of Gospel covered Soul, Jazz & RnB, the track Optimistic, with such positively uplifting lyrics made a change from some of the bland lyrics we get in popular music now

I played this song when I was bed ridden with a mysterious illness. It got me through. Years later when I encountered adversity from a racist professor in a new country, I would play this as I did my homework. Now, at another low point in my life, I play it again. This song has saved me now for nearly 20 years. Thank you Sounds of Blackness.
