Pure Gospel 2
Bonita\'s mission is: 1. To show and share God\'s love and to do the blessed will of her Father, through song. 2. To share herself by reaching and touching the broken hearted, friendless, lonely and confused, homeless and sometime forgotten loved one. To bring joy or a smile to everyone she meets. 3. To be able to give service to one in their most heavies hour in time of need and be able to comfort them in song, and financially, if needed. Her mottos are: \'Give Me My Flowers, While I Yet Live\' and \'If I Can Help Somebody, As I Travel Along-Then My Living Shall Not Be In Vain.\' Bonita has completed several project: 1) Introducing Bonita C. Ruff 2) Pure Gospel II 3 Straight From the Heart/Tribute to the Families, Victims, and Heroes of September 11, 2001.\' This CD is universal. The message is strong, but at the same time Bonita\'s dynamic voice soothes and comforts the listener. Not only can she sing, but she has written some moving, touching, and inspirational songs. There is a powerful message in every song she sings and write. Listening to her sing, one will witness that she has been inspired by God. Bonita sings traditional, inspirational, and urban gospel with that anointed voice. But if you ask her what style she sings, she will tell you \'I sing pure gospel, straight from the heart.\' Listen and tell me what you think. Bonita believes in enjoying life, \'as long as you put God first.\' She truly believes the Scripture when it says, \'But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.\' (Matthew 6:33) Throughout her singing career, Bonita has held on to her mother\'s words of wisdom: (1) \'Live the life that you sing about.\' (2) \'Know what and for whom you are singing.\' (3) \'Sing under the anointing power of the Almighty God,\' and (4) \'Respect other gospel singers.\' She is a Hospice volunteer. She goes into Nursing Homes and Care Facilities on a regular basis. She also visits Women Shelters and Prisons. When she goes into these places, she don\'t go empty handed, she takes gifts, toys for tots, and whatever is needed. On September 13, 2005, Bonita C. Ruff received a proclamation signed by Council Member Marilynn M. Bland (District 9) and Council Chairman, Samuel H. Dean for \'her giving heart, outstanding contributions and inspirational spirit.\'
