US Singer-songwriter Reverend James Elmore Jenkins sings with such self-awareness and realness on the Black Lives Matter inspired- ‘A Lament‘.
Reverend James Elmore Jenkins is a minister and musician from Manchester in Tennessee. He seeks to entertain and educate through songs, sermons, and sayings. As a Christian, he hopes to honor and glorify the Lord in all that he does.
This is a song all about the sad loss of life that is happening especially in the USA at the moment. Pointless killings that seem to be motivated by racial hate. This is a shocking story that is so sad to see.
‘A Lament‘ from Reverend James Elmore Jenkins is an indie-folk song packed full of thoughtfulness and love. This is an artist that seeks peace and this is a fine effort indeed. Hopefully his message will inspire change, change that is so needed in a world that seems to be full of hate but deep down, is full of love.
