Everyone’s On Their Journey

By Cherine Anderson

๐Ÿšจ People will not stay with you forever

๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ: Everyoneโ€™s on their journey too!

When I started in the music business it would bother me when we would find a team of musicians that I truly loved working with, then they would move on to work with other musicians (sometimes even while they were still working with me).

In my insecure mind, I thought I was spending all the money I had, I wanted to create something super special and I felt like my โ€˜specialโ€™ was being shared (or given) to other artist before I could perfect it. ๐Ÿ‘€

And to keep it ๐Ÿ’ฏ some of them I saw on stage performing with others before they came to work with meโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ’…

(You see how many โ€˜Iโ€™s were in those last two sentence?) ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜†

What a complete waste of time, energy, life ๐Ÿ—‘โ€ฆ brain space.

Listen there is something so wonderfully liberating when you realize that itโ€™s not about youโ€ฆ

๐ŸคYour gift is something God gives you to help others.
๐ŸŸYour gift has and will always create room for you.
๐Ÿ”“Your gift will unlock gifts for other people.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ Their gifts will unlock something in you that you couldnโ€™t do on my ownโ€ฆ

And every person is on their special journey, with responsibilities and dreams of their own.

When I decided to just guh hard and genuinely just pour out everything and support everyone (stay or leave), I ended up with more local hits and a heart full of gratitude.

Even the legendary, award-winning musicians started calling and came to work for me in droves.

So let me say it louder for all musicians ๐Ÿ˜โ€ฆ Just make the damn music.

Iโ€™m EXCITED to be working on new music and thinking of putting together a new bandโ€ฆ

๐—ง๐—”๐—š a musician or vocalist you think would make a good fit for my band

(Ps. You can also Tag yourself, tell me your instrument and country)

Everyone’s On Their Journey

Pay Attention To People Around You

By Cherine Anderson

You wont believe this story ๐Ÿ˜ณ

While on tour several years ago I was the opening act for an artist who I witnessed rocked the crowd with a tune he had started writing during sound check.

โ€œBut this nuh done?โ€ I thought, โ€œHim nuh finish writing this songโ€

Second thought ๐Ÿค” โ€œBut this is brilliant. If the audience hate the song I donโ€™t have to waste hundreds of thousands of dollars on a releaseโ€ฆ..right?โ€. OK ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜†

It was in that moment that ๐—œ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—บ๐˜†๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—œ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐˜† #๐—ง๐—ฅ๐—ฌ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐˜†.

FFWD a few years later during what seemed like a musical hiatus.

I received a call to be a part of history.

I was asked to join reggae legends Marcia Griffiths , Judy Mowatt along with Sly & Robbie as part of a headlining package for Reggae on the River.

I was SUUUPPPER excited (and a shocked at the same time) because

โœ… Little Cherine was singing with who? You mean THE I-Threesโ€ฆ(Iโ€™m still sooo grateful for this moment)

โœ… It was also the first time in the history of the festival that thereโ€™d be FEMALE headliners.

So, we each got our individual sets.

And I decided to perform my unreleased happy tune called #TRY.

๐—”๐—ก๐—— ๐—๐—จ๐—ฆ๐—ง ๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ž๐—˜ THAT

I took what I witnessed years ago, and follow the brilliant example.

They announced my name. I walked on stage, they gave me a chair and I took up my @matonguitars acoustic guitar.

And in this headlining moment I decided to #TRY


Watch the video above to see how it went over in front of thousands.

God you do have a sense of humor. Youโ€™ve been whispering messages to me in every moment. I love you. Thank you Father ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ

Thanks Jill @revitalizewithjill for capturing this.

Pay Attention To People Around You

Everything has its appointed time

By Cherine Anderson

Several years ago I wrote #TRY in the kitchen/living room of my cozy rental apartment.

VERY Shortly after that my landlord gave me notice ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

I can smile nowโ€ฆ but if you were on my IG Live on Friday you would have heard one of our team members tell you how crazy this was. One day sheโ€™s working from my home and Iโ€™m writing this song talking about โ€˜rent and being out of luckโ€™โ€ฆ then it happened.

Anyway, I started to perform TRY live both in Jamaica and overseas on tour to โ€œtestโ€ it out – I wanted to see how the audiences would responded to it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

Around that time Patrick Lindsay ( my manager) decided that it was TIME to make the album. So we reached out to the legendary Dean Fraser to help us with this production for this version.

The song was recorded, mixed and sat on one of my hard drives โ€˜unreleasedโ€™ for a long time โ€ฆ.

Now 8 years later, after much prayer for clarity and direction I was instructed to release 3 songs. This is #2 and NOW is itโ€™s TIME.

So this is me moving in faith into the next chapter of musical unknowns BUT I completely TRUST God with this one.

And like the song says gotta #TRY#TRY #TRY canโ€™t give up the fight.

Long as the world keep spinning
I’m still standing
The sun must rise again
Everyday’s a new beginning
This race called livingย 
One day we’ve got to win

#TRY would not have been possible without these incredibly talented people who helped us bring this to life

Trying to keep it together in this crazy world

By Cherine Anderson

Anybody else out here trying to keep it together in this crazy world? ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ

Keep readingโ€ฆ

I recognize everyday that itโ€™s not meโ€ฆits never been me. Itโ€™s like God has a whole army of angels around me creating an impenetrable barrier. God holds my life together.

๐—ฉ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐— ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜: For the last 18 Months Iโ€™ve not been able to physically be with my family. They are thousands of miles away. I miss them. No physical birthdays, No Thanksgiving, No Christmas. No Independence or Emancipation holidays. Friends and family members dying. Milestone Birthday Parties as well as Funerals over zoomโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜”

You come to learn that even the people who have your number wait for your updates on social media and whatsapp status instead of checking in. When they reach out itโ€™s generally when they need something. But God is goodโ€ฆand as long as I can helpโ€ฆI will always help.

This panorama thoughโ€ฆ is a season of auditing. Thereโ€™s a pruning happening and itโ€™s good. My faithful few are still my faithfuls. (๐—›๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ณ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต๐—ณ๐˜‚๐—น๐˜€) Some people have happily drifted and Im eternally grateful. Theyโ€™ve made room for some beautiful new people to come into my life. My God I thank you!

BUT itโ€™s THIS song that I declare over my life (almost daily) to keep it all together โ€ฆ.

Jealousy will rot your bones | A Cup A Day

Jealousy will rot your bones | A Cup A Day

Jealousy will rot your bones

Yup! Hit favorite on this and can comeback to it whenever you start to feel that emotion.

Jealousy is an absolutely wasted emotion!

Iโ€™ll confess, Iโ€™ve looked at some situations and said if I had the opportunity โ€œI know I could have taken it to a whole other levelโ€ , โ€œI know my team could have brought more value to the peopleโ€…

Only to get a peak behind what they had to sacrifice, who they stepped on or hurt, what things they omitted or lied about, a glimpse of their true intentions.

This insight sent me right on my knees praying for forgiveness and THANKING God for NOT giving me what I thought I wanted.

๐Ÿ’ก Be patient. Whatever opportunities are for you will be for you.

It feels better to get that off my chest and out into the world. Now itโ€™s your turnโ€ฆ

Have you been jealous about something that you later realized might have killed you?

Victory Lyrics

Verse 1
No weapon
Raised against me
Will ever Will ever prosper
And no disaster
Can overtake me
Iโ€™ll conquer
My Father is a way maker

Pre Chorus
And I canโ€™t give up
Look how far you brought me from
Canโ€™t give up
Cause I know where I belong
Canโ€™t give up
Every step you held my hand
Canโ€™t give up
Cause I know who I am

My God My God
My God My God
My God My God
How you love me
My God My God
My God My God
My God My God
How you love me

Verse 2
Even when I stumble
Oh when I fall
You love me
Forgive me
In spite of it all
And when they come for me
When people lie
You provide
A way out
So I can smile

Pre Chorus
Thatโ€™s why I canโ€™t give up
Look how far youโ€™ve carried me
Canโ€™t give up
You give me strength when I am weak
Canโ€™t give up
Cause as far as I can see
Canโ€™t give up
With every breath thatโ€™s left in me

My God My God
How you love me
My God My God How you love me
I could have lost it all
My God My God
You never gave up on me no no no
How you love me
Victory Sickness couldnโ€™t hold me down
Victory No money couldnโ€™t hold me down
My God My God How you love me
