I’m deeply saddened by the profound loss of Nelson Mandela. He was more than just a man, but a king of peace and a beacon of hope for anyone suffering or oppressed. His courageous life touched the hearts of millions. He was perhaps our generation’s greatest example of how you can rise above oppression and use your struggles to unite the world in peace. All of us stand on the shoulders of his profound accomplishments in raising awareness against HIV/AIDS and issues around anti-apartheid, equality, freedom and human rights. As I performed at the Mandela Day concert in honor of his 91st birthday, I was in awe of a man whose soul was filled with an effortless and rare love that only comes once in a lifetime. He was a gentle man with a beautiful smile, and deep eyes that always saw the best in humanity. His legacy lives on in all of us! And inspires me to continue to live and work for a better tomorrow. The world feels a little bit different now….

Back to the Genesis with this one.

These are the Days
Where are these guys? This was my favorite band.
I hear the growth!
I prefer writing in depth about artists/visionaries are working on, or what they have worked done that’s made them unique. Not really into throwing up a link and saying “Hey listen to these guys!”
So I’ve been hiding, inconsistent and toying with the idea of shutting down my site,The Pink Mic, at least 1,000 times, but I know there’s way more behind the music that gets sent to me. With a million distractions a day from cell phones, social sites, and TV, battling for a second of your limited time is a lot to ask. But a lady is working her way up to bios here…someone fascinate me. Music is my drug of choice, but cool shit is cool shit, so if I’m interested I will write about that too. Who has a story?
