Well, 1st let me start off by saying… “what an amazing experience”! The Watoto Children’s Choir was in town yesterday to record for my new song “It’s Gonna Be Alright” Featuring my good friend Israel Houghton. I had the Idea for Watoto to be on the song about two years ago. I talked with Israel about it way back then and he was able to help me out and make this vision and dream become a reality. The kids showed up around noon yesterday on their beautiful bus. They were so excited to be there and to be on the song with me and IZ. I stepped onto the bus and told all the kids I was so grateful for them being there and excited to have them be a part of the project. It was funny because most of them didn’t believe it was me, as they said I looked so different due to my weight loss LOL. You could feel the excitement in the air, from the moment they stepped off the bus. We began to take pictures and get acquainted with each other. I fell in love with the kids instantly. Soon after we took them into the studio and began to show them the song and the part they needed to learn and memorize. Cameras were everywhere to capture the excitement as TBN and JCTV were on board to film our recording session and this great experience. I ordered pizza for everyone to make sure they were fueled up and ready to go. Most of the children were happy to see that their favorite American food “Pizza” had arrived. To try and explain to you how amazing this session was, is nearly impossible, thats why we will be posting footage up for you to see in the near future. The children sang “It’s Gonna Be Alright” and “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” in their amazing, angelic voices. We also had them say “it’s gonna be alright” in their native African tongues. The adults sung the hook as well and added the world sound we needed to take the song to another level.
