Throwback Thursday: Sounds of Blackness – “Optimistic” (Live on ‘Showtime at the Apollo’)
We’re only a week into 2021 and the year is coming through with big hold-my-beer energy. And ion like det.
In 1991, Sounds of Blackness blessed us with a message that never gets old: Be optimistic. Even when you’re down and not feeling so good; even when’re stuck in a panny with no end in sight; even when it seems like the country you live in can’t seem to get it together. Just remember that everything will be fine — as long as you keep your head to the sky.
If you’re wondering why the song’s lyrics and melody touch you in a special way, it’s because it co-written by none other than Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (along with SOB director Gary Hines).
Click play and be blessed.
