Carolyn D. BakerLet’s start off the New Year in the right direction with a purpose to help preserve the history and legacy of the “Arts In All It’s Forms”. I am talking about music, dance, film, theater, fashion, and all other forms, that were created with a passion to express and entertain. I have made a mission of Jamsource/Runway to expose and support the industries and hope that the readers find it interesting enough to follow up on the featured stories and find the same pleasure I received learning about the many educational and entertaining foundations across the nation.

I would like to give props to those that set out to create a place where you can get informed and learn about the industry first hand. Some of the foundations that I have learned about should be visited and, participate in the many events that are given, which are put on to help bring more awareness and to support the cause. Here are a few that I would like to put on your mind, Motown Museum, and the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame, both in Detroit, the Funk Music Hall of Fame and Exhibition Center, Dayton, Ohio, and the Houston Blues Society. I would recommend these and the many other foundations that give honor and preserve the heritage.

Stay Tuned In And Learn About The Arts In All It’s Forms
May Your New Year Be Full Of Blessings,

Al Lindsey Saginaw’s own Pulsating Music recording artist Al Lindsey has just released his fourth smash cd, entitled “Love You More”. The soulful masterpiece is getting rave reviews, both home and abroad. Itunes has it listed in its top 100 R&B category. This piece exposes the musical diversity of this multi-talented vocalist.

The soulful balladeer began his musical journey in his hometown of Detroit at the tender age of 13, singing lead in the church choir. He was performing in the nightclub at the age of 16. His musical experiences in the motor city served as the framework and the foundation for his vocal stylings today. As a young lad he met Marvin Gaye. He performed in a vocal group for two years with Lawrence Payton Jr, who has since replaced the late Obie Benson of the Four Tops. He enlisted in the military and performed when ever given the opportunity to, opening for the popular comedian Jimmy Walker, aka JJ of the television show Good Times. Following his military stent he resumed singing in Detroit, releasing his first record titled Always On My Mind. Although getting great reviews he was not greeted with much success. Somewhat discouraged he returned back to the academic setting and pursued a medical degree.

Solidified with a medical career Al resumed his passion for singing. He moved to Saginaw in 1992 and fine tuned his musical craft. He has had an intriguing musical career, sharing the stage with such greats as Enchantment, New Birth, Latimore, Willie Clayton and Bobby Rush to name a few. His new album is receiving lots of airplay, and an inspirational piece titled I See Jesus can be heard on Vickie Hill’s Gospel Show, 107.1FM every Sunday. 98.9 FM out of Flint is hammering other cuts by Al Lindsey.

His music can be purchased locally at the Music Planet, 517 Carpenter Road in Flint, MI, (810) 787-0099. His online distributer is cdbaby at, thereby allowing downloads with iTunes and the like.
Al Lindsey is an artist to watch out for!

When the Holy Spirit teams up with hip hop, it makes for a dynamic collaboration of Gospel Rap; a process RIFICA refers to as “the Holy Spirit downloading the lyrics to his brain.” This partnership in music attracts all ages of believers and non-believers the same. RIFICA showcases this spiritual encounter in each of his albums: Motivation, The Standard, Death of Me mix tapes and the Fresh Manna Album. His unique style of artistry is both versatile and nonconforming.
RIFICA He was born and raised in Houston, Tx. Known for his interactive “line dance” tracks, RIFICA creates a high energy atmosphere that would make anyone get up and join. RIFICA is an International artist who has performed all over Texas as well as Denver , CO, Baton Rouge , LA , Myrtle Beach, SC, Nashville, TN, Los Angeles, CA, Las Vegas, NV, St. Croix, Virgin Islands, Nassau Bahamas, and even on a Carnival Cruise!

God brought the name to remembrance and it’s meaning to the acronym RIFICA (Righteous In Faith InCrease Abundantly). This modification would eventually develop RIFICA’s brand and shape him into the artist he is today. Since then Rif , is proud to have worked with artists such as Educator, Immortal, Poetic Prophet, BSloan and Mike Dixon.

When you hear the sounds in his albums, everything from the beat to the lyrics, expect to hear real life applications. He makes sure his supporters know that it wasn’t his own doing as he always says “All Glory Go to God None to me”. RIFICA wants us to always remember the righteous in faith increase abundantly and every Christian is RIFICA because every Christian should be righteous in Faith increasing abundantly …

It’s not about me

This isn’t your typical art exhibit. Watch your image become an abstract work of art, deconstruct the style of Dorothy Hood, learn to paint and create a virtual painting in Dorothy’s unique style.

This unique Dorothy Hood perspective is waiting in Corpus Christi! Experience The Color of Being/El Color del Ser: DOROTHY HOOD at the Art Museum of South Texas through January 8, 2017.
