Smokie Norful

With his soulful tenor vocals and an unerring ability to fuse contemporary gospel with hip-hop sensibilities, Smokie Norful is one of the brightest lights on the current gospel scene. The son of an African Methodist Episcopal minister, Norful spent his first 14 years in Muskogee, OK, where he absorbed music ranging from sacred gospel to the secular soul that was popular at the time, and both strains would serve him well when he began his professional singing career. By the age of two he was picking out melodies on piano, by four he was actively playing and singing in his father's church, and by ten he was a featured artist on a custom album assembled by a regional music director. Although music was his enduring passion, Norful instead opted to study history at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, eventually working as a history instructor for four years before relocating to Chicago in 1998 in order to earn a Masters of Divinity degree from Garrett Theological Seminary.

After his graduation, Norful remained in Chicago as an assistant pastor at the Rock of Ages Baptist Church and stayed active in various church choirs, eventually catching the ear of Joe Anne Brunson, leader of the Thompson Community Choir, who asked him to sing one of his original songs for the choir's Real album, which essentially launched Norful's professional singing career. His debut solo album, I Need You Now, was released by Chordant in 2002, followed by a live album called Limited Edition from EMI Gospel in 2003. Norful has characterized his music as "urban inspirational," an apt term that allows him to stretch the boundaries of traditional gospel while still remaining true to its purpose. EMI Gospel also released Norful's second solo album, Nothing Without You, in 2004. Life Changing appeared in 2006, and in 2009, EMI Gospel released Smokie Norful Live. ~ Steve Leggett

Have mercy upon DONALD TRUMP, O God, according to thy lovingkindne s s : according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out his transgressio n s . Wash him throughly from his iniquity, and cleanse him from his sin.
Report as inappropriate
I acknowledge DONALD TRUMP transgressio n s : and his sin is ever before YOU. AGAINST YOU GOD, YOU ONLY, have DONALD TRUMP sinned, and done evil in your sight: that YOU be justified when YOU speak, and be clear when YOU judgest. LORD REMEMBER DONALD TRUMP was shape in iniquity; and in sin did his mother conceive him. FATHER you desires truth in the inward parts: so I know in the hidden part YOU shall make DONALD TRUMP to know wisdom.

Purge him with hyssop, and he shall be clean: wash him, and he shall be whiter than snow. Make him to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide Your face from his sins, and blot out all his iniquities. Create in him a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within him. Cast him not away from You presence; and take not Your holy spirit from him. Restore unto him the joy of his salvation; and uphold him with Your free spirit.
Report as inappropriate
Then will DONALD TRUMP teach transgressor s YOUR ways; and sinners shall be converted unto YOU. Deliver him from bloodguiltin e s s , O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousnes s . O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Report as inappropriate
SO Father i pray YOU shall break DONALD TRUMP spirit and give him a contrite heart Oh God i know THEN YOU shall not despise him. Do good in thy good pleasure unto DONALD TRUMP: build up the walls of United States of America. Then shall thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousnes s , Praise, Prayers and Worship upon thine altar. IN Jesus name I PRAY! Amen
