ALBUM NOTES:
I would have to rise at four o'clock to get ready for Sunday services and it was already midnight as I sat at the piano in somewhat of a quandary▴ I had completed the original version of "Teleprompter" but in my mind, the issue that prompted the song remained unresolved▴ "Turn on the light▴▴▴ change the reel of this unreal movie▴" How do we do that? How do we move from the confusion to the answer?

I sensed that I should make the shift harmonically and go from minor to major▴ I played an Eflat major seventh chord, the Heavens opened up and my heart began to sing, "ℒℴѵℯ, be encouraged. ℒℴѵℯ, will see you through▴▴▴▴"


Sincerely, I could feel the tenderness of Marvin Gaye guiding not only the way I sang, but the way I played▴ My fingers played two more chords in succession that were also "very Marvin" in how they made me feel▴ Of course! ℒℴѵℯ is the answer to the question I had posed▴ "ℒℴѵℯ, gives you courage▴ ℒℴѵℯ, mends your heart▴ ℒℴѵℯ, is the best thing▴ ℒℴѵℯ, you can't go wrong with ℒℴѵℯ▴▴▴"

The answer is elegant, simple and deeply profound▴ And "The ℒℴѵℯ Song" was born▴ Everyone loved "The ℒℴѵℯ Song" so much that we decided to name the whole project, "The ℒℴѵℯ Project▴" It is only fitting that "The ℒℴѵℯ Song" is dedicated to the memory of Marvin Gaye▴ Thank you, Marvin, we love you▴ May your soul rest in Eternal JOY▴
