#MusicSermon is creating Curated Music & Entertainment Content

#MusicSermon is a place of musical “worship” where we praise our legends, testify about the good works of the unsung, and rejoice in the blessings of soul music. Sermons “preach” on the bygone eras of music through story telling combined with video and audio content.

Started as a weekly Twitter series in July 2017, #MusicSermon has grown over nine months into a true community of music lovers and a source for communal nostalgia, with a splash of music and cultural education. I'm so proud of what we've built, as the "congregation" is the heart of #MusicSermon.

Sermonites have fellowshipped over the Female R&B Voices of the 80s, the Male R&B Groups of the 90s, Juke Joint Music, and the Funk and Soul Groups of the 70s & 80s; and reminisced over Beggin’ R&B Songs, New Jack Swing, Neo Soul, NY Boom Bap, R&B and Hip Hop Collaborations, and more.

As #MusicSermon grows, the next step is expanding the experience both on and offline - a new interactive website, a podcast, expanded long form content, video content, events, etc - and I want to maintain the same quality and consistency of output you've come to expect from me while doing it. That will take some help. Many of you have asked how you can support, and I want to make sure your support comes with extra value.

While there will still be a "collection" after each sermon for one-off contributions, I'm happy to also offer the opportunity to become a patron of #MusicSermon for additional content, perks and access. Your patronage will allow me to offer a paid internship, create content that requires higher production levels, and curate events that will translate #MusicSermon to in person experience. It will also allow your Pastor to take more time to put into the cultivation and growth of the brand and content. This takes a lot more man hours than it looks like. In exchange, you'll receive specialty content, the opportunity to provide input, and some treats and surprises.

The reward levels may change and adjust as we go, but please know that no matter what you chose to pledge, my gratitude for your support on any level is boundless. In way of thanks, I'll continue to provide you with great content and experiences, for the culture.
