I used to listen to a R&B singing group called BBD. It composed of Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronnie DeVoe. They branched off a group called New Edition. This group also had some top notch singers in it. Bobby Brown and Ralph Tresvant rocked it out with Bell, Bivins, and DeVoe for a while. Bobby Brown went big on a solo act. A little bit later New Edition brought in Johnny Gill.
That was a while ago. Today, New Edition is on a 30-year reunion tour-ma-jiggy.
When New Edition was discovered, no one really knew how big they would change the face of music in the 80’s. New Edition paved some trails for groups like BBD, Silk, Boys to Men, and even Nsync and the Backstreet Boys.
So I sit here today realizing there is a New Edition of me. I’m not sure what the developments will become. Will I have a solo act? Will I bring in other performers? Will I start my own recording studio? Will I sing a song that hits number one in the charts?
Nope, I don’t know.
Rather, I am choosing the path of a new edition of myself. I have been beholding the Lord and been hearing some interesting things as I begin this new edition. I have just completed a 10-post series about letting Cat’s out of a Bag. This series was enjoyable and encouraging as I heard your stories through the publication of the series.
I am seeing a couple of things I will be attached to in this next season. I know some of you will want to join me and some of you will want to move on. That’s cool! But either way, if you know of some folks that would be encouraged by the content I am going to be attached to, let them know about this blog.
