"You Just Don't Know..." - Benjamin Cone III & Worship

“You Just Don’t Know…”
Benjamin Cone III & Worship
From the Muscle Shoals Sound Gospel CD
When Praise Meets Worship (2013)

Riffing on the adage “you don’t know my story,” Benjamin Cone III and Pastor Derrick Traylor report that they have “been through hell and high water,” so when you hear them praising, you know why. 

The two gruff-voiced singers testify musically over an insistent stomp beat while the sonorous Worship keeps time with steady hand-claps.  The message, repetition, and intensity, accentuated by mounting key changes, make the single radio-ready.

Cone is the son of the late Benjamin Cone, Jr., who died last September.  The elder Cone was a recording artist and served as road pastor for the Mississippi Mass Choir and Mississippi Children’s Choir.  He has a posthumous cameo appearance on “Something Inside So Strong,” a duet between the younger Cone and Trisha Green.
