“…A Melody Beyond Music…”…When we hear a familiar melody, we tend to sing, or at least, hum along…

And sometimes, a melody can be expressed far beyond that of simple music, and The Chestnut Street Community Church in Roselle understood that last Saturday, when they presented “The Melody Of God”, a concert of words…lyrics, poetry, rap, and even dance, that spoke volumes…

With the opening line, “Don’t expect anything, but accept everything”, host Letisha Springer opened the door to a night where ‘listening’ was the credo, ‘cause one can always ‘hear’, but sometimes still never ‘listen’…

A wide variety of guests came to spread this melody about the sanctuary, including “The Street” hip-hop church of Elizabeth, who got the ball rolling, “Steps Of Praise”, a group of dancers that captured the struggle, as well as, the freedom within, and Danielle Snow, who was also on hand to bring her many gifts to the table, including her dance and poetry…

Singer Billy Sainvil performed several original songs, and later in the program, brought up ‘Destiny’, to perform a duet of “Heal The World”, which led to a ‘cell-phone’-lit ovation…(in lieu of the old-time lighters…)

Poetress ‘Moses’ also exhibited her soul, which prophetically and electrically pronounced His arrival in her, and dancers Brianna Randall and Ashley Corrigan displayed a perfect dichotomy of God’s strength and love…

Along with these, all the many performers who sang, danced, spoke, or simply showed up to encourage and engage, blessed all those who came, and ‘listened’…

…and whatever one may have ‘expected’ when they walked in, they surely parted filled and ‘accepted’…
