Four Letter Word
"The Four Letter Word" I remember when I was a kid, Grown ups used to always say "It's not nice to use four letter words!" Now obviously when one thinks about all the vulgarities used in today's age we can realize why people have a certain taboo about four letter words. But it dawned on me one day when I was reading the bible that there are so many words of power that contain only four letters and so the quest of finding a name for my album and thesis was complete. My album would be called the FOUR LETTER WORD. My goal is to crush the stigma of four letter words while providing an inside look into my life, my thoughts & desires through an Epic Theatrical Music Experience. This album is a testament to the reality of Christian life that I have seen. Growing up in New York as a preacher's kid wasn't the easiest thing. I never gang banged or stabbed somebody or have gotten shot but I lived my life "faking" the walk of a Christian and acting as though my life was something it wasn't. Like most urban youth, I was attracted to everything this world had to offer. I hung with the killers and drug dealers, spent my hours with gang bangers, and flirted with the thought of doing my music to copy what the "music industry" was doing. I was lost in the "sauce" which many find themselves in today. I felt trapped in the world and even though I went to church every week, I did not have a clue how to live for Christ. That all changed in 2003 when I almost lost my life, I realized and learned that being a REAL Christian is being REAL with God and yourself. By his grace I'm here today, willing and able to help others who have traveled down the roads that most travel.. From the Intro to the Outro, The Four Letter Word is a REAL LIFE perspective on Christianity, Trials, Suffering, Temptation, Tribulation, Victory, and just being who God created you to be, not who people want to see. I pray you find out the beauty of Jesus through my music. Love, Seda.
