  • MTV.com: Jermaine Dupri Remakes 'Secret Garden' With Usher, Trey Songz, Robin Thicke

    Jermaine Dupri is spearheading a new version of a classic song, and just like "We Are the World," it's another Quincy Jones tune.

    JD has called on Usher, Robin Thicke, Tyrese and Trey Songz to cover Jones' 1989 hit "The Secret Garden (Sweet Seduction Suite)." The original version starred seductive vocalists James Ingram, Al B. Sure, El DeBarge and the incomparable Barry White.

    Right before the NBA All-Star Game, Dupri talked about his and his team's rendition.

    "It took a minute for me to even think about touching it," JD admitted. "It's a couple of components in that record that you don't wanna touch — Barry White being one of the main components. I had to leave him [on the song]. There's nobody out there in the world that's got a voice like his or even sounded the way he sounded. So I had to make sure I could leave that. It's gonna be interesting for y'all to hear how these young guys sound mixed in with him."

that's great. don't let this world make you lose sight of your true purspose to live for God and help others do so. Let every test and trial make you stronger and wiser not weak or hard. continue to let Jesus lead the way and you will become what God ordained you to be and have all he desires to give you. Life is in Christ and not this crazy world. Keep growing in faith and in Christ. love ya. You are blessed and highly favored.
