Perhaps you are still sleeping on this stunning, soul stirring new talent from Ireland, who recently signed to Atlantic records. Let me be the first to put you onto Laura Izibor, the Nigerian-Irish singer/songwriter/pianist set to release her debut album “Let The Truth Be Told” at the top of the year. I will be doing some background work for her, so make sure to check out some of the shows, they have been the truth! Click on the pic to check out the video for her lead single “From My Heart To Yours”, and see if you catch my cameo.

crock 3 Victory!!
Yo we did it! Change is here…we elected the first president of the hip-hop generation, now watch what happens. Congradulations to my man Barack Obama, demonstrating what heights living the truth can take you to. While it is beautiful that we are celebrating history electing our country’s first black president, I am more impressed with the fact that we united as a country to choose an honest man with integrity, values, faith, and who is just plain cool as hell! And he resides in Chicago, need I say more?!?  I flew to Chi for the festivities, and I was so glad I did. I was able to make it inside the rally to hear O’s historic speech as the President Elect. You can click on the pic above to see some pics from the occasion (I was kinda far back, just telling you now!) Incidentally, Michelle Obama is a graduate of my alma mater, Whitney M. Young Magnet H.S., where my mother taught music while Michelle was a student there. Can I get a Michelle in my life please? I wanna be president! Looks like it’s possible now….

Grammy time already?

In my last newsletter, I mentioned that I had been working with legendary Motown recording artist Leon Ware, who wrote classics for Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, and Minnie Ripperton. We wrote and produced a song ‘Smoovin’ for his new project “Moon Ride”. Well check it, word is, ‘Smoovin’ is being considered for a Grammy nomination. That would be nice. Send up ya prayers on that one!
