“Jesus Over Everything”
Thomas E. Bell (2015)
Available at iTunes
Thomas E. Bell honed his songwriting craft during his high school days, penning tunes for his R&B group. At the age of 21, he decided it was time to dedicate his talent wholly to the Lord. “Jesus Over Everything” is Bell’s current single. In the hip-hop laced single, he makes clear that the name of Jesus is above all others, and “ain’t nobody takin’ His place.”
“Jesus Over Everything” is heavy on percussion as well as keyboard and vocal effects; but just like a good cobbler crust, Bell’s creatively expressed lyrical message rises to the top.
