Hi There Bloggers!!
You Know What today is… Old School Friday!
In case you are new around these parts and don’t know what “Old School Friday” is, well it is grown folks MUSIC! Yes we post some music that comes from some time before 1999, (hopefully) to relive some memories, and to educate or just entertain each other.
Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday and since I love my music I had to sign up to join! To join in the Old School Friday Fun go Here for guidelines.

The theme for this week ,

My first video pick is not “Old School”, it is a remake but here is the link to the Old School version: Oooh Child – The Five Stairsteps.

Donnie McClurkin & Kirk Franklin – Ooh Child

We Are The Ones – Will-I-Am

This was the only video I could find for the “other one” (All you “other one” supporters don’t take it personal …)

Have a great weekend!

    Solid choices this week. I really enjoyed the remake of “Ooh Child”.At about the 1:15 mark of the “We Are One” clip, I thought believe the guy who says “I would like to see us in a world without fear” is actor Troy Garrity (Jane Fonda’s son). You may remember him as Isaac in the “Barbershop” movies.

    I am a fan of both Donnie and Kirk, but never heard their “Ooh Child” rendition. Blessed my socks off! I’ll have to steal it.
