Therefore, the wrong interpretation of life and life's purpose has been exposed. The word with music is one of the strongest, if not the strongest means of communication on the planet Earth. Music is the first means of communication known to man. It is the only natural science known to man. We choose to 'make a joyful noise unto the Lord' only to help vindicate His name. So His will can be done. The word with music can do it's part to calm the savage beast that lives in every man. The message is PEACE. The message is WISDOM.

The O'Jays are an American R&B group from Canton, Ohio, formed in 1958 and originally consisting of Eddie Levert (born June 16, 1942), Walter Williams (born August 25, 1943), William Powell (January 20, 1942 – May 26, 1977), Bobby Massey and Bill Isles. The O'Jays made their first chart appearance with "Lonely Drifter" in 1963, but reached their greatest level of success once Gamble & Huff, a team of producers and songwriters, signed them to their Philadelphia International label in 1972. In spite of their success as a touring group and on the R&B charts, the group had been considering quitting the music industry in 1972; around that same time original members Bill Isles and Bobby Massey departed, leaving the group a trio.
