DU Alumnus Joshua “jL” Mitchell Starts Mobile Application Development Company




The company jeniusLogic LLC. is the brain child of one of Dillard University’s very own Mr. Joshua “jL” Mitchell. jeniusLogic LLC. is a Mobile Application Development Company dedicated to revolutionizing how the Music & Entertainment Industries monetize and engage with their  brand audience.

Recording Artists, Record Labels, Producers, Entertainers and Sports Figures alike share a similar need to control how their brand and its content are being distributed.

jeniusLogic and its Founder & CEO Mr. Joshua “jL” Mitchell believe that their Mobile Apps provide Industry members with the innovative tools they need to creatively express their brand, increase brand loyalty and generate revenue on a global-digital scale. In the spring of 2014, the company partnered with New Orleans Recording Artist & Music Producer DeeLow The Diamond Man for the development and publishing of the Arcade and Music Game App entitled Diamond Man.

The innovative company has also developed Brand Mobile Apps with features such as social media feeds, music distribution and merchant services. They are currently in the #Sprite6Mix #ChangeTheGame contested hosted by LeBron James.

The money won from the #Sprite6Mix contest will go to further development of the Diamond Man Game and the final development phases of our Brand Mobile Apps.

Please support this son of Dillard University as he creatively changes the approach of both technology and music.

Five Songs Every Dillard Alumnus & Student Should Know

Dillard University is known for its awesome music department and DU Concert Choir but you do not have to be a member of the Dillard University Concert Choir to know ever note of these classic DU songs. If you attended programs at Dillard for four years these are the songs that every Dillard alumnus and student should know by heart.

5.) Lift Every Voice & Sing (The Dillard University Concert Choir version) – This song is typically the opening song at every official program and is a classic selection among black schools. The Dillard University version however is a masterful piece allowing the listener and performer to experience the complete beauty of the the poem that James Weldon Johnson created which became the National Negro Anthem.

4.) My Soul Been Anchor in The Lord – Much like the anchor on the official seal of Dillard University this song is a steadfast classic at graduation, honor convocation or official programs of the president of the university. This song confirms that our faith is IN THE LORD (please use a deep tenor and base while reading the last line – Dillard people know what I am talking about)

3) Shut De Door Keep Out the Devil – Quite ironic for a school whose official mascot is the “Blue Devil however this song is a favorite of the Dillard University Family and please don’t forget the hand claps and African call & response during the performance. (If you are not an official DU concert choir liturgical dancer please do not dance in the pews by doing a remix version of your own dance Thanks)

2.) Fare Ye Well – We need a box of tissue just typing this statement about this beloved Dillard tradition. This song is typically sung at the Spring Concert & at the end of graduation. This beautiful master piece created by our very own Mr. Davenport will always be a very important part of the tradition of graduation at Dillard.

1.) Fair Dillard – Written by Dillard University’s first president Dr. Williams S. Nelson with the music arranged by Dillard University’s first music teacher and choir director Dr. Frederick Hall Dillard University’s Alma Mater is beautiful “Fair Dillard, Gleaming White and Spacious Green, We Love Thy Every Blade and Tree. “The alma mater is typically learned at the weekly chapel programs known as Freshmen Assembly every Tuesday. Every Dillard student and every Dillard alumnus should know every word and sing it proudly.

Honorable Mentions for Dillard songs every student and alumnus should know is
