Sunday Praise & Worship | Sounds of Blackness

Sounds of Blackness is a Grammy Award-winning vocal and instrumental ensemble from Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota who perform music from several genres music including gospel, R&B, soul, and jazz. The group scored several hits on the Billboard R&B chart and Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the 1990s. One of the group’s current members is Cynthia Johnson, who rose to fame with Lipps, Inc.

The group was founded in 1969 by Russell Knighton at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and the group was called the Macalester College Black Voices. It was in 1971 when current director Gary Hines took leadership over the ensemble, and the group name was officially changed to Sounds of Blackness (SOB).

The group had acquired local celebrity status throughout the years though never signed with a record company because of various reasons including the fact that many companies were not comfortable with the group’s name. Some companies even suggested to Hines that the group’s name be changed to “The Sounds of Music.”

      Re Robert Smith… Not all money is good money.. especially in this era of a treasonous buffoon and tax scams.. and all manner of dubious 1% schemes… And when money isn’t quite earned or hard-won, it doesn’t take or cost much to throw it around, to use it to impress ..

      But folks are so desperate –

      So those who’ve somehow dubiously amassed it, and benefited in dubious ways …exploit desperate folks.. And can use money as a means to wield power, command undeserved attention and going forward, control narratives and people..

      Don’t fall for the okey doke..
