“Brothers and sisters, I wanna see a sea of hands out there; let me see a sea of hands. I want everybody to kick up some noise; I want to hear some revolution out there brothers, I wanna hear a little revolution. Brothers and sisters, the time has come for each and every one of you to decide whether you are gonna be the problem or whether you are gonna be the solution. You must choose brothers, you must choose. It takes five seconds; five seconds of decision, five seconds to realize your purpose here on the planet. It takes five seconds to realize that it’s time to move, it’s time to get down with it. Brothers, it’s time to testify and I want to know, are you ready to testify? Are you ready? I give you a testimonial …”
