Sounds Of Blackness Encourage You To ‘Fly Again’

Twenty years after releasing their GRAMMY Award-winning debut album, The Evolution of Gospel, which contained the popular crossover jam "Optimistic," Sounds of Blackness is still on the scene and making a joyful noise. The gospel choir recently released a self-titled new album with the uplifting single "Fly Again" leading the way. Featuring Jamecia Bennett on lead vocals, she is the daughter of Ann Nesby (and mother of American Idol contestant Paris Bennett, by the way) who was also the lead singer for the group and led "Optimistic" to top of the charts. It's great to see Sounds of Blackness keeping it in the family and passing the torch from one powerful vocalist to another. The song's video, however, is lacking that greatness and power. This style of video may have been cool and cutting edge in the late '80s/early '90s, but it's just cheesy now. But if you can look past that and listen to the encouraging message of the song, then you can collect a blessing.
