My Detroit Story: Pastor David Bullock

in My Detroit Story by

I continue my July feature of the Preacher David Alexander Bullock by sharing some of his Detroit Stories. This is a special youtube video feature that’s all of 7 minutes but fantastic! Pastor Bullock shares stories about Mayor Coleman Young vs NWA, Nelson Mandela, and the beloved Ortheia Barnes. This feature provides a closer look into the upbringing and cultural mix of Pastor Bullock. We also discuss his passion for music. As a bonus he offers an exclusive listen to his song ‘Price of Love.’

If Detroit were Heaven Album

in WAE Music by

In the fall of 2010 I began working on the ‘If Detroit were Heaven’ album. It started from my writing of the ‘If Detroit were Heaven’ song. I wanted to make a song edifying the Black history, culture, and classic destinations throughout Detroit. I used this song to provide balance for my ‘Teddy Bears tied up to Trees’ song from my inaugural ‘Preaching to the Choir’ album.

A collective commitment of talented artists, long conversations, and hard work produced ‘If Detroit were Heaven.’ It’s my best and most complete work as an artist. The album explores a series of subject matter centered around my belief in self, Detroit, and philosophy. The music is a gumbo of sound accented with impressions of Hip-hop, Jazz, Electronic, and Soul rhythms. Producers Ian Sherman and Engineer Lumumba Reynolds truly brought to life a dynamic work of art. Including the amazing album cover by my friend, producer, and an inspiration for the album, Sterling Toles.
