“Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. 53 Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?”
55 In that hour Jesus said to the crowd, “Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me? Every day I sat in the temple courts teaching, and you did not arrest me. 56 But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.

Kathleen Wirt has owned and operated the legendary 4th Street Recording studio in Santa Monica, California for twenty-seven years, and has been the sole owner since 2001. Listed by The Hollywood Reporter as one of - LA's Temples of Sound - and as one of the - Top 10 US Studios Under $100 an Hour - 4th Street features vintage analog equipment and a floating tracking room encased in sand.
In the early years, Kathleen was unwilling to allow the studio to sit empty when it was not booked, so she read the trades and frequented clubs, offering spec deals to bands that seemed promising. As 4th Street's client base grew and the studio gained in reputation, people credited not only the skills of its producers and engineers, but also Kathleen's scouting and promotion.
Twenty-seven acts have been signed to record deals through 4th Street Recording, starting with Fiona Apple, whose spec deal recording of - Shadowboxer - became the first single on her Grammy-nominated multi-platinum album -Tidal. Next came Incubus, Alien Ant Farm, and Hoobastank, all to become platinum-selling artists. The most recent is The Neighbourhood, whose 4th Street EP led to their signing to Columbia and a double-platinum radio hit, - Sweater Weather.
Kathleen is a member of NARAS, and is the Vice President of Los Angeles Women in Music. She also works to discover and nurture production careers through 4th Street Recording's internship program, which has helped launch the careers of many young producers and engineers.

#FORMATION is another opportunity for a BEYONCE rotation
and that is ALL it is
I would rather see your humanitarian efforts than another SUPER BOWL performance BEYONCE! Brushing over KATRINA with a couture fashion shoot on top of a police car does nothing for the victims who are trying to rebuild 10 years later, or the efforts to prevent what happened from happening again
Apparently BLACKS are easily impressed by a COUTURE fashion shoot set in motion by an overrated pop star. What about #FLINT ?
FLINT WATER CRISIS is not trending, KATRINA isnt even trending, what is trending is HOT SAUCE. What is trending is RED LOBSTER.
So red lobster is benefiting, beyonce is benefiting, but who isnt benefiting? the people.
What was the purpose in featuring that imagery if we are not going to SEE you do your humanitarian work? What is the purpose of you saying you are HALF CREOLE and NEGRO ? WHAT DOES THE LYRICS TO THIS SONG #FORMATION have to do with the issues surrounding our people and the tragedies of the world? BEYONCE, you are not a hero, you are not socially conscious, you are a THIEF of knowledge, a distraction, a puppet of ignorance.
The song is catchy, the video is entertaining, but that is all it is. Michael Jackson coupled his videos with lyrics and EFFORTS!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING BEYONCE?! People, stop being zombies, wake up and stop worshipping lackluster con artistry
