Sara Vaughan - Sinner or Saint

Della Reese - What Do You Know About Love?

Until you hear a snowflake fall
or see a face on every wall, 
until your heart can’t speak at all,
what do you know about love?

Until you start to walk on air
and tie a rainbow up with care,
until it’s more than you can bear,
what do you know about love?

Though you put me completely
at long wondrous command,
you still haven’t discovered
what makes life so grand.
Sweetheart, you don’t understand.

Until you’ve tasted the real romance,
until your dreams begin to dance,
until you give your heart a real chance,
what do you know about love?

Tell me. What do you know about love?

Liv Warfield - BlackBird

Paul McCartney got it wrong;
I ain’t never want no song.
I ain’t special; I ain’t strong.
I’m just a BlackBird.

One and one is never three.
Sunken eyes can’t ever see.
I ain’t waiting to be free.
I’m just a BlackBird.

They may try to break my wings.
They only love me when I sing.
I ain’t no slave; I ain’t no queen.
I’m just a BlackBird.

[music break]

These broken wings can learn to fly.
I got your four and twenty in a pie.
You tell your stories and your lies.
Of a Blackbird.

No special and I gotta go.
No special breed you need to know; 
might be a raven or a crow.
I’m just a Blackbird.

[music break]

Paul McCartney got it wrong;
I ain’t never want no song.
I ain’t special; I ain’t strong.
I’m just a Black.

Redemption Song

Bob Marley - Redemption Song

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds

Old pirates, yes, they rob I;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the Almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it’s just a part of it:
We’ve got to fulfil de book.

Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

[Guitar break]

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it’s just a part of it:
We’ve got to fulfill the book.
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs -
All I ever had:
Redemption songs:
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom.

The Mission

Damian and Stephen Marley

[Chorus: Stephen Marley]
From Jungle to Rema
From Tivoli to Matthews Lane
From Waterhouse to Drewsland
From Baneland to Delacre

[Verse 1: Damian Marley]
A youth and youth fi have a plan and have some ambition
And make sure unnu firm ina di Armageddon
So when you son become a man, him know just where you stand
Him know him popa set it so him follow tradition
If Marcus Garvey say fi read then why some man ah pree
Cause knowledge is the key and it will set the people free
And Haile I philosophy is African unity
Unno watch dey segregation and social impurity
The race is not just for the swift but those who can endure
Make sure you have a steady footing in ah zion door
And keep dem thoughts dem pure, Jah love is for the poor
But some litte boy burst some gun dem mooma can’t afford
If Jah say blood fi run let Jah will be done
The heaven and the earth will pass away before him word no come
But if ‘I’m rise without a cause there will be no reward
For you to enter Zion gates because you are a fraud

[Chorus:]
For the youths in the struggle
Fighting Guerilla warfare
Somalia to Ethiopia
From Egypt to Zimbabwe

[Verse 2:]
Haile Selassie say of war if color is a scar
If one from every nation can come live up an ah par
So don’t care who you are, there’s a brighter morning star
It’s shining wake the town and tell the people near and far
You seek and you will search with science and research
The flesh it is the temple and the temple is the church
Haile Selassie say fi work so how some man ah lurks
Dem fix upon the cornerside like rubbish heap and dirt
Haile Selassie say ah one respect for every man
No care they race, no care they color nor the religion
So make a decision before the division
Cause each and every rasta youth to trot pon di mission

[Chorus:]
From Portmore to Kingston
From Kingston to Montego Bay
From Seaview to Riverton
Come and hundred proclaim

From Jungle to Rema
From Tivoli to Matthews Lane
From Southside to Telaville
From Iraq to USA

From Waterhouse to Drewsland
Baneland to Delacre
