TBGB Pick of the Week: January 26, 2009

“Get Up”
From the group’s forthcoming album, scheduled for release April 7, 2009

“Get Up” is a bright and bouncy wake-up call to arise, shake off the winter doldrums and its emotional residue, and get your praise on. It’s a new day. The spirit is moving. Change is in the air. “Get up and dance while you have the chance now.”

The rhythm-and-praise male group GI (God’s Image: Branden, Marlon, Curtis, and Lamonte), whose “Something Got Hold of Me” was reviewed by TBGB earlier, has the sound, the looks, the moves, the groove, the jump, the whole package.

And on their video…is the woman in the SUV a cameo appearance by The Belle Report’s Sheilah Belle?

Thanks to God, the world is your oyster, “Get Up” proclaims. So shake some sauce on that shellfish and dig in.
