Regina Belle has always been a great singer from the late 1980's that many of us remember. She had one of those signature voices that kept love songs and good R&B music alive. Recently, she has announced that she will be releasing an inspirational album which would be her 2nd one so far. We can appreciate her calling it 'inspirational' and not 'gospel' music.

We here at AT2W wanted to address our readers about why we have started to write so much about Black women and what we are saying. We realize that most of our regular readers know that we discuss the truth in all we do here at AT2W. We have found this necessary to really provide you with some substance in your daily reading of blogs and news sites because there are plenty of sites that dish out fluff and stuff. We never wanted to be that kind of blog.
We knew this would happen at any time. Many fathers who neglected to pay child support over the years, will not receive their government issued checks which is starting very soon. It's unfortunate that the government has to do this to those who need the money the most, but there are babies out there that are grown that never received support when the needed it.
This is truly become a really big mess. We did not cover the story on Whitney Houston and the alleged funeral home casket photo with her in it. We really thought the photo could have been photo-shopped so we left the story alone. Well, now that Whitney Houston's mother is apparently going to the authorities to seek an investigation who leaked the photos, we shall give you the latest on the story.
Though the cause of death has been listed as "deferred" pending toxicology test reports, the inquiry is apparently nearing completion, and "nothing suspicious" has been turned up regarding Houston's physicians, or any other persons of interest related to the case.
911 tapes have been released and it is so scary to hear people horrified on tape, but as we have told you before, this is spiritual matter. School shooting have been going on since America has turned away from God. God wants this nation to submit...

John Allan Miller is a 47 year old Australian native who claims to be Jesus. He even goes so far as to say that he remembers the crucifixion and that Mary Magdalene was his wife. Miller’s false teaching has gotten him quite a following with over 100,000 of his DVD’s in circulation. One might ask how seemingly sane, intelligent people would fall for such a thing. We have to look no further than the Bible to get the answer. The Word of God warns us about false teachers and people claiming to be Christ.
We wanted to state that we were really broken up about Whitney Houston's passing. We learned quite a bit about her upbringing and how the church and others influenced her. We did not know she claimed such a great collaboration of gospel and church leaders as an anchor for her. But we are concerned about this so called 'spiritual influence'.
This is a beautiful tribute of all of Whitney Houston hits from the beginning of her career to her last album. Check it out.

The New Beginnings Baptist on Chicago's South Side received a huge donation from producer Tyler Perry. It all happened when the church wanted to tear down an abandoned motel across the street that was an eye sour to the church and the community. The only way to get rid of the now popular hangout for drug users, prostitutes and the like, would be to buy the property. Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Baptist Church actually put up a tent on the roof of the old motel back in November. He literally moved in and stayed up there until the could raise the money to buy it. Even though he thought it would take 21 days to raise $450,000, it took much longer at a 95 day journey.
When we see the facts in this case now, we know that we can't make excuses for bad behavior. Oscar Grant did not have a criminal record and was not doing anything wrong. Unfortunately for his cousin Tony Jones, he does have a criminal record and was fleeing from a car while carrying a gun. We can't deny the fact that he was doing wrong. All the protesting and marching can't change that fact that when you are caught doing wrong, you may face more severe consequences at that point.
Well, it appears that the fate of some Atlanta School teachers and educators will come soon. Many of them will face the consequences for participating in one of the nation's largest cheating scandals. Let's find out exactly what many of them who have evidence against them will have to face from the grand jury:
The All Star Gospel Brunch that gave way in Orlando, Fl on last Saturday may have been a big festivity for some but it truly irritated and disgusted at least one member of the Tims family. While Paula White was being honored at the All Star Gospel Brunch along with the late Zachery Tims, according to his daughter Zoelle Tims, she found this 'other' honoree repulsive and not Christ like. She pens her feelings of the event on her Live Journal page.

With his blonde pigtails and purple tutu, Zach Avery, now five, has been living as a girl for more than a year – after he first refused to live as a boy when he turned three. Little Zach was just three when he began refusing to live as a boy, instead choosing to wear pink dresses and ribbons in his long, blonde hair – because he has Gender Identity Disorder (GID).
The very thought of Paula White and Riva Tims being in the same room after all of the church scandal is almost unheard of. But this year the late pastor and former husband of Pastor Riva Tims, Zachery Tims and Paula White will be honored at the All Star Gospel Brunch. We are sure that even though Paula White allegedly acquired Zachery Tims' New Destiny Christian Center under false pretenses, we know she will feel uncomfortable at gala with Riva Tims and her family attending.
We found a taping of an 8 hour video for Whitney Houston's funeral on the TheWhitneyVault.ch website. They have a videotape of scenes outside the church, security watching the funeral home and hearse. They even have footage of the what happened outside after the funeral and the cars driving away with Whitney Houston.
The LA Times reports the famed basketball player turned ultra entrepreneur is now adding a television network to his repertoire. You can help but wonder how this man gets all of his energy and inspiration for being one of the most active persons that really provides jobs and inspires blacks. Even after battling the AIDS virus, nothing seems to stop him. Good for him.
Here's Whitney Houston's official funeral program. Please make sure to read the letter her mother Cissy Houston wrote for her in the program. Its interesting what she says she felt weeks before Whitney's death and how Whitney Houston visited her mother even after her death. Very touching stuff.

NewsOne reported this news through the Black and Missing Foundation and TV One while they focus on showcasing African Americans whom go missing and giving their case its due exposure. We have to say that we enjoy watching the 'Find Our Missing" show on TV One because they are really working hard to get these cases out to the public for their own communities.
Singer Aretha Franklin Apologized for Missing Whitney Houston's Funeral and More News on Bobby Brown
Some news outlets have been sandbagging Aretha Franklin for not attending Whitney Houston's funeral. She honored Whitney at the Radio City Music the night before but complained of leg problems which she stated 'locked up' on her. And "Bobby Brown violated a prior agreement made with the Houston family that he wouldn’t speak to his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, unless she reached out to him first." Also, consequently, news reports are now stating the unpublished book Bobby Brown started in 2008, may now be released since the wake of her death. This tell all book has alerted a publisher and their thoughts on the alleged book.
A 13-year-old boy who admitted raping a 5-year-old girl at a McDonald's play area in southwest Ohio has been sentenced to an inpatient treatment facility for at least six months. As for the victim, we are praying for her to receive all of the support and love she will need to get through this because the memory of a rape stays with you for a lifetime. Fortunately, rape does not have to keep you in bondage. She can get through this.

We are pretty sure that many presidents have had several assassination attempts in their tenure in the White House. We are concerned that President Obama has encountered several attacks in his short term in office. Here's yet another assassination attempt planned as a suicide bomb attack. We have read that if President Obama is not assassinated then he will encounter several attempts before his time is up.

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick To Face New Federal Charges For Corruption and Racketeering
Read report below:
Kwame Kilpatrick faces brand new federal charges in the explosive corruption and racketeering case that has dogged the former Mayor of Detroit for the past four years since being formally charged with obstruction of justice, perjury and misconduct while in office. The latest reports state that Kilpatrick and a contractor pal shook down a city towing contractor to the tune of $90,000.
Bobby Ferguson, a close friend of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, was charged with seven counts of money laundering, according to a superseding indictment filed in U.S. District Court back in November.
This latest indictment follows a long list of charges against Kilpatrick, his father Bernard, other family members and even those from his former administration. With the prosecutors naming the group a criminal enterprise, the charges levied upon the so-called “Kilpatrick Enterprise” include racketeering, extortion, bribery, tax evasion and fraud.
Kwame Kilpatrick is due in court on September 6 this year.
The charges are related to Ferguson’s alleged attempts to conceal $1.7 million in extorted payments that he received for no-show work from a contractor. The indictment also offered a new, stunning allegation that Kilpatrick pocketed a $10,000 kickback in a restroom. Source
The charges were leveled in a federal lawsuit filed by Crouch granddaughter Brittany Koper (far left) against her former lawyers, who also do legal work for Trinity. One of those lawyers said her charges were "outright fiction and wholly without merit." On Thursday, Feb. 9 -- the same day that our story ran online -- Paul Crouch and his son, Matt, were having a live chat on TBN's "Behind the Scenes." Paul was reminiscing about how TBN began back in 1973 -- God spoke to him as he was driving on MacArthur Boulevard -- and the conversation took a turn that Koper's attorney finds somewhat menacing.

We know that over a year ago, author Terry McMillan was trying to get the original cast together from her 1990's book to movie 'Waiting To Exhale' to do her sequel, 'Getting To Happy'. The last report we made was that every cast member had confirmed they would work on the sequel except Whitney Houston. Those cast members would be: Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine, and Lela Rochon. Terry McMillan was trying to confirm with Whitney but we never heard word that she would do the movie or not.
