    Check Out the Urban Sounds of Seth and Nirva Ready’s “Whole World”

    The first time I heard Nirva Ready’s amazing voice was on TobyMac’s Christmas CD, Christmas in Diverse City. She sings a beautiful rendition of “Angels We Have Heard on High.”

    Nirva is actually a dancer and backup singer for TobyMac’s Diverse City Band, but she stood out to me in that specific song. You should check it out!

    Well, for Nirva Ready fans, you’ll be excited to know that she’s debuted her first album, I Need You, with her husband, Seth Ready! The album is a fantastic mix of pop, gospel, R&B and hip-hop. Take a listen to their recently released song, “Whole World.”

    Ladies, are you a fan of Seth and Nirva? What do you think about this song?

    1. Hey T.M. Gaouette! I was wondering if you could inform me on what the bible says about interracial relationships/marriages. My family and most of my friends’ families believe that it’s wrong; why would God make us different colors if we are supposed to mix? Don’t get my wrong, my family is not racist in any way; I was raised to love everyone and believe that we are all equal. I don’t know if it’s just because of where we are from (I live in the south) because I noticed that a lot of my friends from the north are ok with it while my friends from the south believe the same way I do. I’m just curious for your opinion on the subject, I hope this isn’t taken offensively by anyone because that is not my intention at all; my family sees it from a religious perspective and I’m just curious! Thank you and God bless!
      P.s. I love the song!

      • That’s a really good question! I personally believe it’s fine, and actually hope to marry outside of my race, but I’d love to hear what other people (Christians) have to say. I live in Maryland (the north) and interracial couples aren’t extremely rare. It’s interesting to see other points of view. I also wanted to respond to your question (why would God make us different colors, if we are supposed to mix?). Well that’s almost like saying why would God create us different (races, purposes, heights, talents, desires, etc.) if we are supposed to mix? You see what I’m saying? Thanks so much for asking this, and for being so respectful about it.

      • Thank you for your question:) There is nothing in the bible against interracial marriage, which is why, as a Catholic Christian in an interracial marriage myself, neither I nor the Catholic church have a problem with it (The Catholic church actually fought for interracial marriage). There are many biblical references about believers not marrying non-believers -a Christian from one nation marrying a pagan from another may cause the Christian to turn away from God. Unfortunately, there are some Christian religions who use those references to deny marrying between races. I’m not sure which Christian churches are against it. I would be interested to know what biblical reference your family feels relates to not marrying between races. Best and blessings, TMG

        • Thank you so much for your input! That’s a really great point you made and honestly I’m not sure what my parents use to support this idea. I think they were just raised up to believe that. My dad always compares it to the birds: during the day, all colors of birds fly out and spend time with birds of different colors but at the end of the day they always fly back to their nest with the same color birds (this is also true for most animals). I guess they kind of look at it like why would we all be different colors if that is his plan for us to mix but I don’t know if this is a correct way of thinking since the bible says nothing specific about the subject. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply:) I definitely like to hear what other Christians have to say and I think I’m going to look more into the subject also! God bless!
