The Longest Journey: CD Song Order with Song Journey Info from Tina :

1. Don't Give Up (Shout outs by BIG CITY)- Written in 2008

“Let us not become weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest, if we don’t not give up.”
Gal. 6:9 (NIV)

The word of God is powerful! After working on this CD for over 12years in 4 different cities, I cannot begin to say how many times I had to call say this scripture out loud. My husband and my children have reminded me of it along the way as well. I am so thankful that I can say I didn’t give up. I hope this song encourages you to not give up on your dreams…

2. Set You Free feat. PAULINHO GARCIA - John 8:31,32 Written in 2000
“In the Summer of 1990 ,God “Set Me Free” and the truth of the Bible changed my life and I became a Christian. I wrote this song, as if God was speaking directly to us. For those who have listened to my music through the years, this is an updated version of the original one I wrote ten years ago.”

3. Secrets Of My Heart – Written in 2000
“Several years ago, I found out that my church needed a theme song for our Women’s Day Conference, and the next day while I was doing laundry I was flooded with lyrics and melodies and began to sing this song. After writing this song, I saw that God was trying to reveal the thoughts in the quiet place of my heart and heal me. I hope that you can hear your heart song as well “. *Fun fact: My husband Mark made me put this song on this CD and I have officially recorded 4 different versions of it since 2000. I think this is it

4. Thank you Lord- written in 2000
After spending some time in God’s word, I felt really grateful and wanted to try to write a song to the Lord, expressing how much I loved him. I was sitting at my dining room table and began to write this song. I called my best friend Lara and sang it for her over the phone. She loved it and 10 years later, I finally can share it with all of you.

5. Every Day (Acoustic) written in 2011
I wanted to do a more acoustic version of this song so I could have a few more ways to celebrate God. This is really my very first attempt at writing songs that are more Praise & Worship. I started praying about writing songs like this a year ago and it was the last song I wrote for the album. God was listening.

to write a review


'Musical Splendor' meets 'Soulful & Spicy Vocality'
Among the many rising 'neo-soul' artists, Tina Jenkins-Crawley has not only risen...but ARRIVED with deep and heart-changing messages. She has combined the sultry and heartsy of hip-hop and perfectly merged it with a new jazzy and spirit-filled spin. If this is only her Freshman effort...we are all due to return to school!


Something for Everyone
This CD has something for everyone. Yes, truly the perfect marriage of jazz, neo-soul, contemporary, and gospel! What an amazing voice praising our Lord! On the top of my worship play list. Keep it coming Tina!!!


"Time Well Spent"
You raise me up to a higher level of worship with every song. You are truly anointed to spread the love of Christ through your music ministry. To God Be The Glory. Keep lifting Him up. He is pleased.


"Time Well Spent"
You raise me to a higher level of worship with each song. You are truly anointed to spread the love of Christ through your music ministry. "To God Be The Glory." Keep Him lifted up. God is very pleased.

Music For The Soul
Music is a way for me to take care of myself. I am grounded in jazz and gospel and with this album Tina was able to provide both genres in a speculator way. I love her choice of musical accompaniment that brilliantly blended with her soft sultry voice. You cannot get a better album at this price. I highly recommend it you will not be disappointed.


This CD is amazing! Very uplifting, powerful and get to the heart of me!
