I love supporting! It comes naturally! Tuskegee University as well as all other HBCU's hold a special place in my heart and I want all of them to succeed.
I am still looking for a checkbook with mixtures of HBCU's in them. When I find it, I will buy that one just to show my support.
Now my two that are closest to my heart are my beloved FVSU (no explanation needed here, or at least there should not need to be) and Morris Brown College.
With the band programs it is the same thing.
There are songs that I believe some bands can play better than others. Its no shade to the other bands, every band has a song that only they can play just right (This is my opinion now). Tuskegee plays those two songs, Albany State (mark this day in history, I will give ASU props on something) plays "Pretty Brown Eyes", Clark Atlanta plays "TeachMe" By Musiq Soulchild... etc..
Now with FVSU, they play a couple of ones that I love, but neither comes up to the love I have for our Alma Mater as well as when my FVSU BMMB plays "I'm So Glad". Sure ASU has their version as well as Morris Brown, FAMU, and others and they are all nice sounding but when my BMMB plays that song it lifts my heart and spirit. I have heard other people dog it and say they didn't play it as well as we did or they didn't play it right at all to which I respond "It sound perfect to me" I love it and I love my FVSU.
We are making improvements to the BMMB and I think people are hearing and more importantly they are rallying behind the band and putting their money where their mouths are. So, our band will continue to improve. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT AND I AM ON THE RIDE WITH THEM! LET'S GO WILDCATS!
Can ya dig it?
