Many of us woke up this morning to the troubling news of seemingly peaceful Dallas protests following the recent and increasing number of black people being killed by police turning into a murder scene with a reported 11 police offers being shot resulting in 5 mortalities. Shots were said to have been made from a high-rise building by a sniper.
Music has always told the story of our times and reflected the cry of generations. With high emotions and anger thick in the atmosphere, we wanted to hear what the christian and Gospel music community had to say about this time of unrest, fear, injustice and anger.
With wifey praying for the city she grew up in and the place we called home for most of our life. Tears flow for the city of #Dallas

THIS is why we pray 24/7. That Jesus would be exalted above the fear that the media is producing. #pray

I live here in Dallas. It doesn’t matter to me the color of the officers shot. They are human beings. And what happened is wrong.
