Selahthink About It
DESCRIPTION: 'Inspired Jazz...Music for the Soul. 'Selah...Think About It', the debut CD by Derek and Sharon Hudson is the recipe for at work listening, the smooth ride home, and after work relaxation. Each song has it's own flavor, texture, groove, and sound. Yet, together, they seamlessly create a jazzy background for peaceful reflection and represent the strong spiritual union that the couple shares with each other and with their Creator. LISTENER QUOTE: 'The anointing on Derek and Sharon Hudson is that of a prophetic minstrel. Over the years my heart and life have been deeply touched by their ministry. 'Selah' expresses the heart of God concerning you. The ministry of the music offered to God will bring spirtitual release in your life, allowing the incense of worship to arise. The ministry of these songs will lift you up an bring you into an atmosphere of God's presence.' --Pastor Sam Hinn BIO: Derek's saxophone playing style influences include Kirk Whalum, Justo Almario, Grover Washington Jr and Richard Elliot. Derek began playing alto saxophone at age 11, picked up the tenor at age 14, and later added the soparano. A graduate of the United States Naval Academy, Derek sensed the call to ministry through the medium of contemporary jazz and resigned his presidential commission as a naval officer. When he heard Sharon sing and minister for the first time, Derek says that he experienced 'audio visions' of accompanying her in song. A native of Portland, Oregon, and a graduate of Florida A&M University, Sharon ministers in prophetic song to bring life and encouragement to listeners of all ages through the Holy Spirit. Singing 'psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs' (see Colossians 3:16) is one of Sharon's greatest enjoyments. Sharon is notably strong in prayer and has a heart that desires to bless others with the spontaneous 'Song of the Lord'. Derek and Sharon, aka 'Inspired Jazz', agree that music is a universal language that can be used to inspire, soothe, and encourage. Their musical stylings clearly cross cultural and generational lines. Their hope is that, through their music, the listener will be inspired to have and build a relationship with the living God, through faith in His only Son, Jesus Christ, 'The Anointed One'.
