The Decision to Handle Rejection

Rev. Manson B. Johnson

The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.“Man’s rejection can be God’s direction.  God sometimes uses the rejection of hateful people to move us to a new place or assignment–where we wouldn’t have thought of going on our own.

GDN Music Feature:Byron Cage’s New And Ninth CD "Memoirs Of A Worshipper" In Stores Now!

Written by Featured Organization on 23 July 2012.

GDN-CD-Feature-Byron-CageNew York, NY - Byron Cage became a household name in gospel music after such Top 10 worship anthems as “The Presence of the Lord” and “I Will Bless the Lord.” Cage is pouring his heart out in his new and ninth CD, “Memoirs Of A Worshipper.” He collaborates once again with Aaron Lindsey, who produced Cage’s 2009 release, “Faithful to Believe.” The 11-track CD, recorded at Chicago’s Christ Universal Temple showcases Cage’s personal desire for a deeper relationship of worship with God.

“I kind of chronicle my journey in ministry and it shows people where I’ve been,” Cage says of "Memoirs Of A Worshipper." “My last CD was recorded when the recession began, and the struggles people began to go through made me write a little different on that CD. It was the type of album to build up the faith of God’s people. For this new CD, I collectively put songs together with Aaron Lindsey that I felt would be the next level of worship. What I really wanted to bring out on this CD was to share with everybody what I’m writing and what’s in my memoirs. Although I’m still giving the message of faith and a message of hope, this is a stronger worship album.”

Sure to become a new anthem, “Great and Mighty” is the first single from the CD and it is quickly approaching Top-10 at Gospel radio. Cage discovered “Great and Mighty” four years ago when a friend sent him a copy of it. He instantly liked it and taught it to the music department at Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Ft. Washington, Md. where Cage has served as minister of music for 15 years. The praise team started singing it at church and he says, “we saw the power of the Lord come in to the service,” he remembers. “So, when I started working on this album, I thought about it and said I want to put that on the CD.”

Other highlights on "Memoirs Of A Worshipper" include “Gratitude,” which sets the tone for the CD with the sound of a delicate piano underscoring a majestic praise ballad; the Latin-inspired “Victory” featuring Fred Hammond, “Troubles Away,” a fusion of `60s dance and a Caribbean carnival that instantly puts listeners into a festive mood, and “Good Anyhow,” a cover of Rudolph Stanfield & New Revelation’s 1990 classic ‘He’s Good Anyhow.’ “I’ve been a fan of Rudy’s for many years,” says Cage. “Choirs used to sing that and I said, `I’m going to reach back and do that song…I put a new vamp on it and it was one of the highlights of the night.” •
