George Nooks “Surrenders All” In New Video! (@Tadsrecord)

The man who burst on the scene as a dancehall deejay in the 70s, using the moniker Prince Mohamed, has just blessed us with the visuals for one of the tracks featured on his 2021 album, Through It AllGeorge Nooks – via Tad’s Record Inc. – released the official video for the well-liked Christian hymn, I Surrender All, in mid November (on the 18th to be exact).

Although the words in the song were penned more than a century ago by Judson W. Van DeVenter, an American art teacher and musician who subsequently became a music minister and evangelist, it is this reggae remix – produced and sang by George Nooks – that’s got the reggae community’s attention.

And, despite the fact that Nooks has achieved financial success, countless accolades and worldwide recognition as a secular recording artist, he has – since the start of his career – been committed to singing reggae-gospel music. This dedication became apparent when his grandmother died in 2001. He had this to say about I Surrender All and some of his other gospel recordings: “From I was little I listened to some of these songs in church. My grandmother was the mother of the church and I used to be there with her all the time.” 

I Surrender All can be streamed and downloaded from iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and all other major music platforms, courtesy of Tad’s Record Inc.; and the video can be viewed on their YouTube channel.

Cellus Hamilton Details His Work Addiction in New Video! (@CellusHamilton)

“Shabbat” is the Hebrew word that literally translates to “He rested”. It refers to The Sabbath, which is the seventh day of the week. It is the day the Torah commands to be kept Holy—through the practice of rest. While Shabbat is widely associated with Jewish practice, it is widely observed by Christians. Shabbat is the foundation concept for Cellus Hamilton’s latest music video.

As Hamilton has often publicly expressed his struggles with work-life balance, he releases a sort of anthem for those of us who find ourselves constantly working. Our never-ending work communicates that we don’t truly believe God will care for us. It reveals our insecurities and the shallow depths with which we have rejected God’s love. The Jesus of the Bible invites us into a life of rest, and that is exactly what Cellus Hamilton’s song is all about.

In the video, Hamilton is so busy working that he is constantly ignoring his family. This addiction lands him in a work addiction rehab where Hamilton explores several rest techniques. The video is directed by CamWitDaCam out of Washington, DC.
