JIMMY JAM  Hits since '81, Blessed since '59 Songwriters Hall of Fame class of 2017 🙌🏾👏🏾👍🏽PLEASE ADDRESS ALL INQUIRIES to Vida Sparks at reachus@flytetyme.com

19 years ago when we told our son Tyler we were expecting and asked him did he want a little brother or a little sister, he said “both”. God listened to Tyler and gave us these 2 blessings on this date 19 years ago. Happy Birthday Max & Bella and Happy “Big Brother” Day Tyler! And Happy “Birthing” Day to Lisa the one who brought everything to life. Not to brag but these kids are truly my greatest production😎 #maxharris #bellaharris #tylerharris #lisaharris #happybirthday #family

Lyrics so you can sing along 🙏🏾😎 Verse 1:
When I was scraping the bottom
Down on my luck
You came along and picked me up and
Brought new purpose in my life
Yes you did
When I was out in the cold (Somebody help her)
You took me in and gave me shelter
In your kingdom of tranquility and peace
B sec:
Where your arms can be my security
And your word can teach me
How I should live
Now my heart so much more compassionate
Cause you’re showing me
How true love should feel
Chorus:
Never felt real love
Til I found you
Deep and unselfish
Its always true
From a higher place
Love that renews
Never felt real love
Til I found you
Tag:
Somebody say
Heaven must be like this
It must be like this...
Verse 2:
My life was outta control at wits end
I was looking for peace in things it wasn’t in
I was lonely and needed a friend
Keep looking up you’ll never search again
Lets respect the blessing we call life
Remembering your sacrifice
Changed my heart so I’m gone try
To earn a place with you on high
B sec:
Where your arms can be my security
And your word can teach me
How I should live
Now my heart so much more compassionate
Cause you’re showing me
How true love should feel
Chorus:
Never felt real love
Til I found you
Deep and unselfish
Its always true
From a higher place
Love that renews
Never felt real love
Til I found you
Bridge:
No more days and nights crying in despair
I’m free from the pain that I use to bare
You came to my rescue Lord
You showed me that you care
Through faith and your love
Im reborn
Cause you give me the strength to weather any storm
And I wanna thank you for
Opening Heavens doors
Each day I love you more & more
And more and more and more
Chorus:
Never felt real love
Til I found you
Deep and unselfish
Its always true
From a higher place
Love that renews
Never felt real love
Til I found you

First off why do we look so happy? @tigerwoods wins! 🏌🏽‍♂️Happy Sunday! 🙏🏾 So in other news, When I was young and heard a song I liked I always went straight to the liner notes to see all the people who made the song happen. While sometimes credits can be found I thought I’d just put them down here so you can see the incredible team that makes it happen. Please excuse any typos, errors, or missing names or info but as the saying goes “blame it on my head and not my heart” ❤️ “Til I Found You” Credits

A rather fuzzy picture to remind us of great memories that are crystal clear. @peabobryson2 came into our musical lives many years ago but we didn’t personally meet him until a few years ago. This picture is from our visit to Korea to record #Korean Dream” our song to spread the words and music of peace and provide the soundtrack to hopefully reunite the North & South. Since then we’ve traveled the world together both physically and musically culminating with our first album project together “Stand For Love”. The experience of making the project was amazing but the experience of getting to know you was even better. When you sing “Ain’t gonna fall for nothin we’re gonna Stand for Love” as only you can, we feel it with every fiber of our being. Today we celebrate another year of your true greatness. Happy Birthday Peabo! With love and respect sir 🎂🎁🎉😎 #peabobryson #happybirthday #jimmyjam #terrylewis #standforlove #koreandream

Hello everybody. Sorry for being long winded but this is a long time coming and this is the SHORT story. So the 30+Years in the making (more on that later) Jam & Lewis Vol 1 project is only a few months away but the first offering on our relaunched Perspective label is out tomorrow. We decided the first single from our project should be in the spirit of how we started the original Perspective Records in the 90s. And that’s with the Sounds of Blackness. So the story is around 1984 Terry & I started doing tracks for what was going to be our debut album. When we played some of the tracks for A&R guru John McClain he said “I need those for Janet’s album”. Those tracks ended up becoming the album track “You Can Be Mine” and the first single “What Have You Done For Me Lately” from the multi platinum “Control” album. We won our first Producer of the Year Grammy and our Producer career was validated but our “artist” career was on what turned out to be a long term “hiatus”. So in 1989 while working on the follow up Rhythm Nation in Minneapolis with Janet we took her to see a Sounds Of Blackness concert. She was blown away and told us we should sign them and do a project immediately. We felt the best home to showcase their incredible talent would be our own label. Perspective Records was born and A&M was our choice as partners as the team of Herb Albert & Jerry Moss understood our vision. The result was the Grammy Winning “The Evolution Of Gospel” album which featured the timeless #1 Single “Optimistic”. As we jump to 30 years later we feel that the opportunity to reunite Sounds of Blackness with the legendary Ann Nesby and Big Jim Wright (R. I. P.) feels like the foundation from which to build a project to uplift and make you fall in love with music again. Sorry so long winded but hope you enjoy. It’ll be available everywhere at Midnight (9pm pst) tonight. #tilifoundyou #soundsofblackness #annnesby #bigjimwright #jimmyjam #terrylewis #janetjackson #garyhines #perspectiverecords #caroline #capitol #jamandlewisvol1 #jamandlewis #laurenevans #iz #bobbyrossavila #christianplata #herbalpert #jerrymoss #clarenceavant #flytetyme

Happy #NationalSiblingDay to our favorite siblings ❤️❤️❤️ #maxharris #bellaharris #tylerharris #wbw #grammys😎

Happy 1 yr Anniversary to my @teslamotors Model X. I took delivery one year ago today and It’s been a life changing car. When people ask how I like it my answer is “I’ll never drive another car”. The more accurate statement probably is “I won’t drive another “gasoline” car. A 6 passenger SUV that goes 0-60 in 2.8 secs and drives itself? 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Thanks to @maximillianharris for curating the soundtrack for our first ride and thanks to @lisajamharris @tylerjharris and @bellabharris for allowing my “electric” to share the driveway with your lovely autos😎 #tesla #teslamodelx #mercedes #amg #rangerover #eddiehazel #funkadelic #maxharris #bellaharris #tylerharris #lisaharris

If you missed it this morning check out my conversation with the legendary @clivejdavis it’s starting now at 8pm East/5p West on the Jimmy Jam Show. @siriusxmvolume SiriusXM Volume Channel 106. Clive opens up for the first time on his feelings about the @whitneyhouston docs, how he earned his songwriting credit on a number one smash, and his enormous love and pride in putting together the @recordingacademy tribute to @arethasings on @cbstv #jimmyjam #jimmyjamshow #clivedavis #siriusxm #siriusxmvolume #arethafranklin #whitneyhouston #airsupply #recordingacademy #grammys

26 years ago today Terry and I were honored to receive our star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. What makes it even more special is that our presenters @janetjackson @magicjohnson and @quincydjones all have their own stars on the walk, as well as friends we've shared #1 hits with like @therealmaryjblige @neweditionofficial @boyziimen @usher @michaeljackson and our godfather #clarenceavant who's star is appropriately placed right next to ours. I remember when we received it we weren't sure we deserved it so we worked hard over the next 26 years to be worthy. And we're not done yet:-) 🙏🏾 #walkoffame #songwritershalloffame #hollywoodwalkoffame #jimmyjam #terrylewis #flytetyme #janetjackson #magicjohnson #quincyjones #clarenceavant #boyziimen #michaeljackson #usher #maryjblige #newedition #lionelrichie #rayparkerjr #6363hollywoodblvd
