All right now!  Get ready to tap those toes, clap those hands, get your body in motion, and definitely “Open Your Mouth and Say Something.”  

Grammy and Stellar Award winner Brent Jones should’ve added an advisory label to this uptempo traditional choir jam because if you are driving, you will positively need to pull over to get out of the car and take a praise breaklike back in the day when you heard “your song” on the cassette and stopped the car and–

Oh yeah, I did go there. 

Driven by the vocal hype of Waco Community Choir and a brass-punctuated music line, “Open Your Mouth and Say Something” will not only make you do just that, but it may very well become “your song” of the day.  So turn up the volume, get your shout on, and holler, “Hallelujah!”

Rap superstar Childish Gambino has tapped Grammy and Stellar Award winner Brent Jones to record vocals on his upcoming album.
 
Childish Gambino is the musical alter ego of multi-talented actor, rapper, comedian, writer and director Donald Glover, who has taken the world by storm with his “This Is America” video–which has garnered over 500+ million views and sparked vital discussions about gun violence, mass shootings, and racial discrimination in America. 
 
“It is an absolute honor working with the brilliant Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino!” says Brent Jones.  “Not only is he at the very top of his craft but equally important, he is a great human being with a heart for the people.  I’m truly humbled that he chose me to be a part.”
 
Jones is presently enjoying the success of his current single, “Open Your Mouth and Say Something.”
