Ed Gray 50 Years In Song !

5o years of songs ! My life in song ! My life in music ! Ed Gray !

Words can not express the joy , the relief , and enthusiasm I have for reaching this milestone ! Perhaps it better to put it in song !

I was born the same day THE GREAT DUKE ELLINGTON was born !

My family took the A TRAIN from the East Coast to Texas !

I grew up in Dallas atending local schools and enjoyed a typical childhood . . .
Eventually graduating from SMU in 1989 !

Sharing a birthday with Rick James allowed me the time to reflect on ....Partying !

In between parties , I found time to Keep Hope Alive !
In these times I served as a Congressional Intern , Founder of the Coalition for African American Progress , a Truman Scholar !

30 years of moving up . I have mentored hundreds of young people , giving numerous speeches , and spent countless hours in community service FOR THE PEOPLE .
I remain as always optimistic about the future ! To believe in the future , you must believe in our youth . We will be allright - because I am part of the youth movement . Young at Heart ! Optimistic ! Keep your head to the sky , you can win !

To truly be rich you must count what you give away .

Ed Gray 50th Gospel Tribute

This is the week of my 50th birthday.I am ever thankful for My Lord , My Savior , for giving me these years . The picture of me on this blog I was 8 he brought me this far by faith.He didn't have to do it but he did . My belief in God is unchanging , my belief in religion has evolved . I believe in God , not man .
Thank you Master for My soul !

For the ages this is one of my favorites ! I played this song when my father died , it got me thru a rough day . My wish is that on my last day above the earth , they play this song , "Mary Don't you Weep " ...all of them men got drowned in the sea! Don't Weep !

I thank the Lord , for giving me my mother who instilled in me church ! She had me to go sing in the choir ,and if there was a song I remember very well ....It is "Pass me not " , Please Lord ....do not pass me by !

Religion is about optimism , your belief in God is personal ! My relationship with my God is personal but I have a relationship , and it is not complicated. 50 YEARS, a lot of yesterday's gone and I pray a few more tomorrows to come .
I will be Optimistic !

See ya next week on the flip side of 50 !
