Sylvia:   You’ve been highly blessed and anointed to sing, compose, produce, and as well as arrange for many notable artists in both the sacred, as well as the secular world. So what was life like for you as a child before you became J. Moss The Entertainer?

J Moss:  Just a normal kid out of Detroit doing my thing just trying to keep with the gang, basically, you know, my friends, but that was very, very short-lived. My daddy stuck a mic down my throat when I was about five or six-years-old so I only had a couple of years to actually do that.

Sylvia:   So who was your greatest inspiration, the one or ones who had the greatest influence on you as an artist?

J Moss:  Oh, just mom and dad. Dad, I didn’t want to do any of this stuff, but he just pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed and then, of course, him and his artist side coupled with my mom spiritual side just really helped create a balance. So as I grew up and came into my own it was those two elements that really, really help mold and shape me. Those were the two main ingredients of what J. Moss would become today and I really, really appreciate them and afford a lot of who I am today to them.

Sylvia:  As we know it’s been about ten years since the release of “The J. Moss Project”. What do you feel was that pivotal moment that convinced you to go back into the musical laboratory and to create your new album, “Grown Folks Gospel” which debuted on November 25th of this year?

J Moss:  Just that actually trying to be different. Not just putting another record out there with my voice on it. It’s really trying to be impactful. Trying to find a void that we can fill and give them a record that they’ve never heard before and a record that only I can do. And that’s not easy to do, but when you have a great team behind you such as PAJAM, myself and you have a drive and you have a focus you can make a lot of these things happen. We just put a lot of hearts and minds together. Of course, I consulted God with it, and He gave us this concept of Grown Folks Gospel.  It’s a record that’s smooth yet it’s hard. It encompasses love yet it deals with loneliness and hopelessness, and encouragement and then tells how to deal with discouragement. This record is that record that you can put on when you’re deep into whatever it is you’re deep into. If you’re deep into love it’s for you. If you’re deep into a bottomless pit kind of state it speaks to that person and for the lonely woman who wants to have that companion in her life but she’s committed to God so she wants to wait and do the right thing there’s lyrics on there for her. You know, of course, the duet that I did with Faith Evans, “You Make Me Feel,” the loss of that really just sets the atmosphere for a great meditation with God or if you’re just hanging with your spouse or your loved one and you just want to have a good time, you’re on date night and you don’t want to flip over the water colors, the jazz station or anything like that you can play this record and not feel like, “Oh my goodness, I’m at church, but I’m not in that kind of mood right now.” This is that kind of record that you can play and pretty much will set the theme and tone for where you are.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, returns to Canada after bombshell announcement

Published

on

The Duchess of Sussex has returned to Canada after she and Prince Harry announced they were “stepping back” as senior members of Britain’s royal family.

Prince Harry remains in the UK and Meghan is expected to come back to London on Tuesday, when the couple are set to attend an event with Janice Charette, High Commissioner of Canada to the UK, at Canada House.

Meghan and Harry wanted to meet with Charette “as well as staff to thank them for the warm Canadian hospitality and support they received during their recent stay in Canada,” according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

The couple recently returned from Canada, where they spent the Christmas holidays with the duchess’ mother, Doria Ragland.

“The Duke and Duchess have a strong connection to Canada. It’s a country The Duke of Sussex has visited many times over the years and it was also home to The Duchess for seven years before she became a member of The Royal Family,” the royals said on their Instagram page, Sussex Royal, on Wednesday.

The latest developments follow the shock announcement that the pair plan to “transition into a new working model” and become “financially independent” after stepping back from their roles as senior members of the British royal family.

There was said to be a mood of deep disappointment in the palace following the announcement, and senior members of the family are hurt as a result of the news.

Meghan and Harry’s desire to become “financially independent” has also sparked questions as to how they will be able to do this.

The pair published detailed documents outlining the structure and funding of their household, which revealed they receive 5% of their income from the Sovereign Grant — a lump sum of UK taxpayers’ money given to the Queen every year — and 95% from the Duchy of Cornwall, the private estate controlled by Prince Charles, Harry’s father.

Media reports have suggested that Meghan was independently worth around $5 million before she married Harry, who inherited millions from his mother Princess Diana.

However UK newspaper The Times reports that Charles may withdraw funding from the couple if they completely withdraw from their royal duties.

Observers say the couple are unlikely to struggle for money and could generate income from a UK trademark for their brand ‘Sussex Royal,” which the couple applied for in June, as well as sponsorship or speaking tours.
