Creating songs that touch the heart and nourish the souls.
– Jodi LaBelle
Over a period of thirty years, Ms. LaBelle has written unique styles of Songs. Her Gospel Songs are very important to her heart, and she knows that they are her greatest achievements. Ms. LaBelle has experienced her share of disappointments in her life. The Pop cuts never came from Whitney Houston, or the jazz song, for the documentary of the Famous Minnesota Fats. Disappointments can also bring success in a different format.
The British networks produced a film that aired on, The History Channel. In different segment clips, one can find Actor/Songwriter Kris Kristofferson, Ms. LaBelle, and Harlan Howard.
“Freedom,’’ was written especially for, “The Bush/Cheney Presidential Campaign'”. Instead, Ms. LaBelle found herself donating it to The Military as well, which reproduced it around the world. The song, ‘‘Freedom,’’ with the music played a part in building up the moral of our fighting soldiers. Today it is on file with the Musical Tributes Section of the Defense Department.
“A Child Of God,”A Survivor, A Mother, also a Business Owner. Today the YouTube Channel, iTunes, Apple TV & other Apple Segments, and many other platforms carries her music.
In the summer of 2022, Gary Rogers from the USA, also Maria DeVito Boutin from England, hosted interviews with Ms. LaBelle. Their websites are listed.
One of Ms. LaBelle favorite Bible verses, Isaiah 40:31.
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. —Isaiah 40:31
From the beginning of Covid Pandemic, the Holy Spirit clothe me, and from the Biblical era, “Sarah,” was born! The first single release of Sarah, I recall asking God what’s next? I then found myself listening to testimonies of Truckers. I handed out over 400 cd’s of Sarah, given at no cost. I guess one might say that we were glad to be alive. Looking back, I think that God was testing me, to see if I would be obedient. Just recently a new cd of Sarah has been released, and the video is now finished. One night I fell asleep upon my Bible, and the next morning, my pen moved like silk. (He planted my feet upon on solid ground and gave me words to songs that cried out mercy. I know that I’m not worthy of thee, Oh God thank you, thank you for loving me.) (Genesis 17:16) And I will bless her and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
Trail of Tears
The “Trail of Tears Song ” will take one back to another era of time. Maybe that’s why it has taken me over twenty years to pen this song. We can only imagine the suffering endured by our Indian Brothers and Sisters. First their spirits had to be broken then we took their land, most importantly their Freedom.
Our forefathers encouraged the different Indian tribes to become civilized like the white man. They had a dream that tomorrow some-how could belong to all man-kind. In time the pendulum now has swung as history repeats itself. The tribes of today have survived their terrible ordeal only to watch all different races destroy each other.
Everywhere I Go
This song, “Every Where I go,” was born in the homes of our older generations. Who loves a smile, a hug and most of all, your time. The heart symbolizes God’s love, humanity and charity.
1 Peter 5:5 Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God” opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
Another Life Worthwhile
“DIVINE INTERVENTION,” is the foundation of “Another Life Worthwhile,” inspired by God. This song will plant the seeds of life as it brings love with unity. Today statics shows that sixty million babies with unknown voices have died. Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, Before You were born, I set you apart. Special thanks to Andrea Owens for answering the call, in hearing the knock from God and becoming a co-writer of this special song.
September 11, 2001, commonly known as 9/11, America found themselves under-attack by a foreign power. Patriotism brought unity as all Americans united with compassion. Out of the ashes, the lyrics of, “Freedom,” gave birth. As this song traveled across the globe, “Freedom,” marched onto the battlefields with our soldiers. The USO became the center point, in having the power to take it global. An organization that was introduced by Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Ms. LaBelle donated this song to the military Department to help inspire our fighting soldier. It can be found in the archive of the Tribute Musical Military Department.
