#MerryChristmas from #WhenWeSpeakTV

Ever since I left home, the holidays have not been a big deal to me but this year I decided to check out the Atlanta Christmas Parade for the first time. Ironically, I was suprised how it got me excited for the holidays. As I watch the different floats go down the street, it reminded me of being younger screaming on the side of the street during my hometown's Christmas Parade.

As I watched the different bands go by it reminded me of the times I marched in the band in the parades.
I can even remember that sometimes my uncle would ride his horse in the parade.  

His horse was so wild and ironically he was named Holiday!  
Everyone in my family (except me) has had some type of accident with Holiday.  One time my cousin was sitting on the horse and the horse ran off with him.  My uncle went running behind the horse and tried to get my cousin to jump off, but before he could jump, the clothes line caught my cousin around the neck and threw him off the horse.  Needless to say, my cousin was ok.. I can't remember how old he was but he couldn't have been no more than about six or seven.
Wow, the memories that just a simple parade can bring!  I never knew something as simple as a parade would bring Christmas excitement to this "Scrooge"! I want to take a moment to wish you and your family the happiest, merriest Christmas you've ever had!

Interview With Gospel Singer Sonya McGuire

One day I was singing at a church with the group that I sing with and a singer by the name of Sonya McGuire was there. I didn't know alot about her but I remembered we sang at her birthday celebration about a year prior. I thought that she was very skilled at her gift and I really enjoyed her music. Well, the night that I saw her again, I decided to record her performance of a song of her's that I really enjoy called Should've Thought About It. When I went home that night, I watched the video and began to be inspired to write a song..... Therefore, I say that my song Walking In Victory was inspired by Gospel Singer Sonya McGuire.

When We Speak TV was blessed to have an opportunity to sit down with Sonya and share this very testimony of how her music has encouraged me to continue writing...... Hopefully one day, I'll get an opportunity to record it and maybe have her lead the song or duet with me! (I'll have to put that on the prayer list!)

Meet Crissy Collins

Singer Crissy Collins


On Thursday, September 15th, I decided to go to a Crissy Collins performance at CafĂ© 290 in Atlanta. (I guess I don’t have to tell you that I enjoyed myself, you should know that, because I’m talking about it!)  If you aren’t sure who Crissy Collins is, or have not heard her name before, let me briefly run down a little about her. You can see her in Tyler Perry’s plays Madea Goes To Jail and Madea’s Big Happy Family. If you’ve seen the play Madea Goes To Jail, Crissy plays the inmate Chico that Madea refers to as “young man”. In addition, if you’ve seen the play, she sang the (you know what) out of the song Yes Jesus Loves Me in this play. She also makes an appearance in some of the Tyler Perry movies… I can’t think of exactly which ones off hand but I think it was The Family That Preys and Madea’s Big Happy Family

In addition to her work with Tyler Perry, you can also see Crissy singing behind one of music’s most noticeable names, Beyonce. Yes, she is also a background singer for the music superstar Beyonce.

I heard Crissy sing in person back in December 2010 when she sang at the SW Atlanta Soulful Celebration, in which I sang in the choir on the song she led but I had never been to one of her performances. I also remember seeing her singing with Beyonce in Atlanta at the I Am Tour. It was great to experience Crissy Collins as an individual singer, it was definitely time well spent!
When We Speak TV wishes Crissy the best that life has to offer and much success as she continues to grow and prosper!

Interview with Quan Howell and Royal Priesthood Entertainment

There are many people that have influenced my life and have encouraged me throughout the years, through the art of music. Among those are people like India Arie, Lashun Pace, Anthony Hamilton, Monica, Sounds of Blackness, and The Pace Sisters. (Like I said that’s just a few names). I can even tell you the songs that have had the most impact on my life by each of these artists:

India Arie- There’s Hope and Beautiful
Lashun Pace- Just Because God Said It, For My Good, and We Worship You
Anthony Hamilton- Pass Me Over
Monica- Get Away
Sounds of BlacknessHold On (Change is Coming)
The Pace Sisters- God’s World , When God is in the Building, and His Spirit is in This Place

Among the list of artists, I never thought I would ever get a chance to meet any of these artist but I believe that when people have empowered you, you should let them know. Who would have thought that I would get a chance to meet the leader of one of these songs.......

Recently, I had a chance to sit down with Quan Howell, who led the song Hold On (Change is Coming) by the Sounds of Blackness. I can’t begin to tell you how great it felt to speak to someone that had empowered so much Life into my life. So when the opportunity allowed me a chance to interview him, I JUMP ALL OVER IT!
Not only was Quan a member of the Sounds of Blackness but he also played Reverend Lewis in the Tyler Perry play Madea’s Family Reunion.

I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I enjoyed conducting it!

Healing from #Abuse (The Answer Is Closer Than You Know!)

We all know that child sexual abuse is a horrible thing but I had never really met anyone that had experienced it….well, they had never told me about it!  Because of this I never really examined the effects that something so traumatic and horrific would have on a victim of sexual abuse.  That was until I met Angela Williams and Tom Scales of VOICE TODAY.  Sure, I assumed that it would have some effects but I always looked at it like, “that’s something that happened in your life that you will one day get over”.  Now, I realize that it’s possible that you never fully “get over it”.  However, I do believe that you are able to heal from it even if you never fully “get over it”.

It’s kind of like breaking your leg.  If you have ever broken a leg, you know that it takes some healing for you leg to fully restore, and sometimes you have to go for regular checkups to evaluate your progression.  Once that leg heals, you still remember that you broke it before ,and you may even remember the pain.  Moreover, you might even have a limp, after it healed. 
I look at child sexual abuse the same.  You may walk with a limp but having a limp is better than not walking at all.
I want to dedicate this blog entry to all survivors of abuse, whether child abuse, child sexual abuse, or domestic abuse.  I would advise that you seek comfort in a friend, a family member, a therapist, or an organization to help you heal from this.  The biggest step is the first one; SPEAK OUT AND BREAK THE SILENCE! 
I believe that from there you will slowly see those scars start to heal!  
If you have ever been abused and you feel that you need someone to talk to and can’t find that person, I strongly suggest that you give VOICE TODAY a call…….

When We Speak TV encourages you to be blessed, be happy, and BE HEALED!

The Art of Barbering

Mrs. Rivers is passionate about customer service. She has owned and managed several barbershops in Gwinnett County, suburb of Atlanta, GA. The school, Phil’s Barber and Style School, was recently opened in 2008. And from what I can see it is definitely the place to get a haircut or to be trained! I wish Phil’s Barber and Style School much success and I thank them for training students to be the “….best barber in the State of Georgia”.

Interview with Singer Winston Warrior (album "Lifeology 101")

Interview with singer Winston Warrior


I recently had the opportunity to sit down with singer Winston Warrior, to talk about his past, current, and future career goals.  While speaking to him, I was very inspired.  Winston talks about his past struggles in the music industry and how he originally gave up on the music.  But that didn't stop him!  (Check out the videos below.)

The interview with Winston was very inspiring to me because it signified my life!  I can totally relate to the things that he's experienced.  Most of all, it inspired me to "Keep Moving".  And I hope that it inspires you to keep working hard at what you do and never give up on your dream!  Some people don't believe that dreams can come true.....sometimes your dream becomes bigger than you ever imagined!

Be blessed!

Peachtree Road Race 2011

On Independence Day you can normally find all types of things to do, whether it’s a parade, a cookout, or just some well needed rest. An Independence Day tradition in Atlanta, Georgia, is the AJC Peachtree Road Race. Organized by the Atlanta Track Club, the AJC Peachtree Road Race attracts runners of all ages, color, and nationalities from all over the world. Since I had never attended this event in the three years I’ve lived in Atlanta, I decided to check it out. I had no plans on running (maybe next time) but I definitely wanted to see what it was all about.




Began in 1970, the Peachtree Road Race is 10k and starts near Lenox Square Mall and ends at Piedmont Park. When the race first began, in 1970, it had 110 runners. Most recently, (July 4, 2011), the race had over 60,000 runners. Thus far this is the most ever! (I was delighted to be one of the spectators).

Although, I didn’t run in the race, this will definitely be a yearly tradition for me also, whether I run or volunteer! See you next year!
MEN'S WINNER: Sammy Kitwara of Kenya
WOMEN'S WINNER: Werknesh Kidane of Ethiopia

Love & Relationships: Don't Lead Me On!

When I came up with the idea of When We Speak TV, my idea was not to only talk about music or to talk about a lot of celebrity gossip. My idea was to have a blog/ show that talks about a variety of topics; Topics that are inspirational and inspiring to people of all walks of life.

Staying true to myself and my love for God, I chose my motto “Death and LIFE are in the power of the tongue” from the bible. However, the blog / show is not a religious show. I want to appeal to a variety of audiences , regardless of race, sexuality, or religion, because we are all similar in one way….We are all HUMAN and that’s what I want to focus on.

Occasionally, on the weekend, I like to get away from the house and clear my head. Usually it’s with my partner or some friends. One day, Nikki and I were on our way to a “weekend getaway”, when she asked me a very interesting question. She wanted to know why males (in particular) continue “come on” to someone, even if the other person says that they aren’t interested. Needless to say, we talk a long time about this conversation and I had much to say. Later that day, as she and I were eating, I decided that it would be a great topic for a quick video. So check out the video below, and share your comments.

New Artists + New Interviews = NEW INTRO

NEW ARTISTS + NEW INTERVIEWS = NEW INTRO

So I've finally started putting more time into my interviewing skills and started looking for more artists, business owners, etc. to interview.  I'm still search for new artists, so if you are in the Atlanta area or in a neighboring state of Georgia....HIT ME UP at jermainesainmusic@gmail.com.  I'm willing to travel too but it has to be worth it!  I would like for When We Speak TV to be a platform for a variety of creative people to share with the world what they do, and their story.

TRY AND TRY AGAIN!

Recently, I attended an Allstar UBA Basketball game that a friend invited me to...he was in the dunk contest.  As he attempted to slam the ball, it came to me that life is just like this Slam Dunk Contest.  You may do lots of tricks and be very creative but sometimes you still don't get the basket but if you just keep trying, eventually you will shoot!

Just a word of encouragement for your day!

Time To Stop Breeding Hate!

Mama Hate - When We Speak TV

This is a song that I wrote about hatred, whether it be racism, homophobia, child abuse, or bullying. I was sitting at my house one day and I heard so many stories about kids being bullied, suicide bombings, and just alot of violence and hatred. It bothered me so much that I had to sit down and write a song about it called "Mama Hate".

I came up with this concept because I believe that we are not elevating as we should in life, because we live in so much hatred. I don't believe that this is something that is in us, I think that it is a behavior that our grandparents were taught- and they taught our parents- and our parents taught us- and we have taught it to our kids.....When does this horrible cycle ever stop? I vow to no longer be a child of Mama Hate.

Jermaine Sain
When We Speak TV

PS. I hope you enjoy the song....Please comment and share the song if you like it. This is only verse one of the song. LOVE! And Most of All PEACE!

"Get Out" By Jermaine Sain

I wrote this song years ago.  I was in a very mentally abusive relationship and in the midst of it, I found myself homeless, working for minimum wage, and many months behind on my car loan
One day, as I was attempting my suicide plan.  I fled down the highway in my car to run it off a bridge.......well.....that's all you need to know....I didn't do it!  And the words to this song came to me!
I would like to encourage anyone that has ever been in an abusive relationship or have ever contemplated suicide, that neither is worth your life.  You are much better than him/her and your life is too precious to take. 
Sometimes I wondered why I had to go through that stage of my life and now I realize that it was so that I can now appreciate where I am, the money I make, the house, I live in, and the car I drive....It's not the best but thank God, I found "my way out" and ""I Feel Good"!

Coming Out to Your Parents

"Coming out" to your parents and the ones you love, is never an easy test.  You don't know if they will reject you or if they will accept you.  Please keep that in mind whenever you decide to come out to your family or friends.  It's sad that someone can know you for so many years and disown you just because of your sexuality... but it happens. 

Most of all, remember that sexually is something that is private.  You make the decision whether or not you want to share your private life publicly.  So, before opening your mouth to "come out the closet" make sure that you are willing to accept if the person, likes it or not.

I'm Gay because........

We often make excuses as to why we do the things we do rather than accept that we choose to do most of the things we do.  Awhile back I did a video about an email that I received.  In the email the guy told me that he felt that he was gay because he was molested. (I totally disagree with him).  The reason I disagree with him is because I believe that you are born gay.  I believe that attraction is something that we have no control over.  However, I do believe that we choose who we sleep and lay with.  Please check out the videos and let me know what you have to say about this topic.

I'm not saying that this traumatic incident, hasn't haunted him but....NO ONE...again I say....NO ONE can "make you gay" nor "turn you out"!  I know many will disagree.  If you disagree or agree, share you're thoughts!
