Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) was a Baptist minister and social activist who played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968. Inspired by advocates of nonviolence such as Mahatma Gandhi, King sought equality for African Americans, the economically disadvantaged and victims of injustice through peaceful protest. He was the driving force behind watershed events such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the March on Washington, which helped bring about such landmark legislation as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 and is remembered each year on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a U.S. federal holiday since 1986.

WGLB Would Like To Welcome Renowned Gospel Singer Dottie Peoples To Our Airwaves. Her nationally syndicated show “Dottie’s Peoples’ Praise House” will air on every Sunday Morning from 6:30-8:30 am on WGLB AM 1560. Check out her bio below!

 

Dottie-Peoples1

Few people possess a voice that can usher people into the presence of God with more joy and immediacy than Dottie Peoples. Blessed with a soulful, passionate voice and an unbridled love for the Lord and her fellow man, Peoples is an electrifying presence on stage that turns any concert into an all out revival. Her gifts for teaching, singing and summoning the Holy Spirit collide powerfully on her new CD, I GOT THIS – LIVE!

Filled with the kind of energetic performances and potent lyrical messages that Peoples has become known for, I GOT THIS – LIVE! is an uplifting collection from one of gospel music’s most anointed artists. Recorded live at Siloam Church International in Atlanta, the project percolates with the intensity that Peoples brings to the stage when she sings. It includes such foot stomping numbers as the title track alongside such soul-stirring ballads as “Let Not,” which showcases the depth and range that has earned Peoples the title, the “Songbird of the South.” Released on her own DP Muzik Group, the label’s sophomore project also features her longtime friend Billy Rivers and the Angelic Voices of Faith Choir from Memphis, Tenn.

In penning the title track, Peoples drew on her own experience. “Like everybody else we’re not excluded from hard times,” Peoples says. “I sat here one day and said, ‘Now Lord, what are we going to do?’ And it’s like the spirit said, ‘I’ve got this! Don’t worry. I’ve got this’ and it started ringing in my spirit. I wrote the song and went to the musicians. My musicians always put their little edge on a song. They just listened to my little melody and pumped it up. I love my band!”

The song has quickly become a focal point of Peoples’ live show and the encouraging message is resonating with audiences all over the country. “Everybody can relate to it,” Peoples says with a smile. “I tell them how I was down and out, really going through my own pity party and didn’t know what to do. I felt like giving up and throwing in the towel when the going got tough, but God turned around and said, ‘Child don’t you know, I got this’ and I got peace. Everybody can relate to it.”

Peoples has a gift for creating thought-provoking, life-affirming music that resonates deeply with audiences throughout the world. It’s a calling she discovered early in life. One of 10 children, Peoples grew up in Ohio, but spent summers in Alabama with her grandmother who everyone lovingly referred to as Big Mama. She encouraged her young granddaughter’s dream of growing up to sing like Mahalia Jackson. “I did my first little ‘ole song around eight or nine years old,” Peoples recalls. “I remember singing and running out of the church. I got scared because everybody was shouting.”

Young Dottie continued to sing throughout high school and her distinctive voice always garnered attention. After seeing her perform in Dayton, Ohio, the legendary Dorothy Norwood enlisted Dottie to join her on the road. “She asked my mom if I could go and momma said yes,” Peoples remembers. “Dorothy had a song called ‘Gotta Be Some Rain In Your Life,’ and that was a hot song for her. The Rolling Stones’ lead singer fell in love with that song and asked Dorothy to travel with them and open up the tour. That’s where I also met Stevie Wonder. He was on the tour with the Rolling Stones.”

After touring with Norwood and the Rolling Stones, Peoples returned to Ohio. She continued singing and developed quite a reputation as a jazz vocalist. “I sang jazz all the way up until I moved to Atlanta in ’79,” she says. “I joined Salem Baptist Church and one of the ladies in the choir, told the minister of music, ‘This girl can sing!’ He asked if I’d like to try a song. The first solo I did was called ‘If You Move Yourself.’ I sang that song that Sunday morning and people were shouting. It changed my whole life because I stood there and realized that I was blessing people. Burdens were being lifted. I knew I didn’t want to sing jazz anymore. I just want to sing for the Lord. I got back to my roots and I’ve been singing gospel ever since.”

In addition to singing, Peoples is also an astute businesswoman. She served as general manager of Church Door Records and also launched her own radio show. After 14 years with Church Door, Peoples signed with AIR Records and took her career to another level, earning her first Stellar Award nomination. Her 1994 release on AIR, “On Time God,” was a pivotal release that rocketed to No. 1 on the charts and earned her four Stellar Awards and a nomination for Soul Train’s Lady of Soul Award. Peoples has continued to garner more than 50 industry accolades, including the 2010 Stellar for Traditional Female Vocalist of the Year.

On I GOT THIS – LIVE! Peoples delivers a thoroughly satisfying collection that includes such worshipful numbers as “So Let Us Praise the Lord” and “Manifest Your Glory” alongside the retro-flavored “Back to the Old Church” which features guest vocals by Faye Butler and Billy Rivers. She also includes the poignant “It’s Not Goodbye, but See You Later,” a gorgeous ballad Dottie wrote that is frequently performed at homegoing celebrations. In another of the album’s many highlights, Peoples delivers a smooth, soulful rendition of the George Benson classic “Everything Must Change.”

“We did just a little bit of every side of Dottie,” Peoples says of her new album. “I opened up with praise and worship and then I showed my jazz side and I did a George Benson tune. I always do an a cappella song, and the one on this CD is called, ‘No Time To Waste.’ I’m even doing a little preaching this time.”

Peoples is on a mission to reach people for Christ and that interaction with listeners is a precious connection to her. “What makes me love what I do more than anything is people,” she says. “So many folks come up to me, some of them crying, some of them just hugging me, some of them so excited,” she says. “Just to know that you’ve touched their lives and blessed them like that – it’s a feeling that you never ever get over.”

Barnstable, Mass. –

A generous mystery man has made the holiday season a little brighter for employees of two Massachusetts coffee shops. 

A man wearing a cowboy hat walked into Marylou’s in Hyannis on Saturday and handed the worker behind the counter 15 envelopes, each containing a crisp $100 bill. 

Manager Victoria Grandy tells the Cape Cod Times “MERRY CHRISTMAS” was printed in red on the front of each envelope. 

Workers didn’t recognize the man as a regular, but one employee said he resembled Santa Claus

A man, believed to be the same person, but this time wearing a ball cap, on Monday handed over eight envelopes containing $100 bills to the workers at the Dunkin’ Donuts at the Cape Cod Mall. 

Those employees also didn’t recognize him as a regular.
