Busuyi Onabolu is out with a new single titled “I’ll Sing When Life is Done”.
“It was the first time I asked “When do you sing?” of anyone. It was sometime in May of 2015 at a Rotary Club meeting. Everybody sings, some answered; it is an involuntary action. Some responded they only sing on special days and maybe on Sundays at Church.
After some time, a lady, demurring a little, rose up and said; I did not want to bring this up earlier but “Songs are powerful, more powerful than prayers as they reach straight for heaven’s throne”.
I have since asked many more people and groups the same question, when do you sing? The responses did not vary much from the initial responses, but the ladies stood alone. The lady’s answer would appear strange, but so is my question.
It was a question that has been on my mind ever since I had a dream, vision, or reverie… call it whatever you may in which I was given a song, and that question was asked.
My question that first time was to unburden my mind. Her answer convicted me and now I have a song. The song came to me in April of 2015. I was walking down this road and saw a crowd being addressed by a man from a podium. It was the man I was going to see.
As I neared him, he suddenly and openly started condemning what he was doing and abruptly stepped down from the podium. He walked, as if rushing, across the road, and went into a massive Industrial-like building. Out of the building came the sound of a beautiful song that drew me towards the building.”
