JUST WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS...CHU'CH FOLK?
“Chu’ch Folk” is a song written, produced, arranged and recorded by recording artist and producer Landa Gherrá. Eventually, the song will become a book. Who knows, maybe even a series of books. Then, hopefully, sparking a much-needed revolution, reformation, or “revival” of sorts.
THIS AIN'T GOD! THIS IS BASHING THE CHU'CH AND GOD'S PEOPLE!
Well, the song Chu’ch Folk was originally written as a spoken word piece in December of 2005 that was inspired by the artist’s heartfelt discussions with the Holy Spirit. So yeh, it is God.
And if you think it’s bashing the Church, then clearly you only heard the hook of the song rather than listening to all of the lyrics, or you heard what you wanted to hear. But that’s ok! You’re here because you want to change that, right?
Reading—and truly listening—is fundamental. And studying to show yourself approved and knowledgeable is biblical. It helps!
AIN'T NOBODY TRYNA HEAR THIS MESS! I BET THAT BOY AIN'T EVEN SAVED! HE NEEDS SOME JESUS!
Um…ok. Are you done?
Landa Gherrá is a born-again Believer in Yeshua. You may know Yeshua as Jesus, but Landa refers to Him by His actual name. Landa Gherrá has been walking and living as a faithful, yet highly flawed Believer in Christ close to two decades. But if you’re quick to judge the song, then most like you’ll be quick to judge the artist behind the song too. That’s ok, he’s used to it and was built for it.
And yes, many people are wanting to hear this song. It was in heavy rotation at KJLH in Los Angeles shortly after its release, along with several national radio stations across the country. In the times we are living in, the Church and the rest of the world NEED this song and its message. And the fact is, you know this to be true. That is why you’re here. On this website. Reading more about it. Good for you.
AIN'T THEY PLAYING THIS ON GOSPEL AND HIP-HOP RADIO STATIONS?
Yep! They sure are! Well, those who dare to engage their audiences in something more than the usual mindless dribble that radio tries to spew on us.
Right now, Chu’ch Folk is playing on Gospel, Hip-Hop, and R&B radio stations around the country. A few that come to mind are 102.3 KJLH in Los Angeles. This is the GREAT Stevie Wonder’s radio station and they were one of the awesome radio stations that dared to put Chu’ch Folk in rotation. Another is the Urban Gospel Sounds Radio Show in Dallas/Fort Worth hosted by Charles “Big C The Encourager” Scott. His amazing show is aired throughout the country where he plays a huge mix of Contemporary and Urban Gospel.
