BABA YETU

“Our Father”

I’m so happy I found this song.

I had never heard about it until an episode of America’s Got Talent Show where ‘Angel City Chorale‘ performed a cover.

What an amazing song!

Here’s Alex Boye’s version.

HortyRex©

Baba Yetu” (Swahili: “Our Father“) is the theme song for the 2005 video game, Civilization IV. It was composed by Christopher Tin, and performed by Ron Ragin and the Stanford Talisman.

For its re-release in Tin’s debut album Calling All Dawns, it was performed by the Soweto Gospel Choir. The song, when rereleased, became the first piece of video game music to be nominated and win a Grammy Award.

This message is why Boyé believes he personally felt a deep connection to this particular song

“When my family found out I joined the church at the age of 16, I was kicked out of my house. That night, I walked the streets of London in tears clinging to the Book of Mormon like my life depended on it. It was the only thing constant left in my life,” Boyé said. “Whilst walking the streets homeless, I would recite the Lord’s Prayer and it became a source of deep comfort to me.”

‘Why Oprah Votes’ …. “🤨 OPRAH WINFREY AND STACEY ABRAMS …. The Perfect Combo 🤨 …. “!!


Oprah Winfrey Campaigns With Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams

~~November 2, 2018~~ 

OPRAH WINFREY AND STACEY ABRAMS

Oprah Winfrey campaigns with Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams

What a magnificent sight!!

I’ve been closely following Stacey’s gubernatorial run in Georgia and know all about the devious, cheating ways of Brian Kemp.

There’s a huge disenfranchisement of African-American voters at the hands of the Secretary of state who, at the same time, is running for governor.

Tad hypocritical, tad conflict of interests, you think?

Anyway, Oprah’s on the way!!

Here’s so hoping that this takes Stacey over the top!!

Oprah Winfrey has lent her star power to Stacey Abrams, the Georgia Democrat aiming to become America’s first black female governor in the midterm elections next week.

“I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter,” Winfrey told a cheering crowd at a Cobb County town hall, citing Abrams’ stance on environmental protection, healthcare and gun control.

Winfrey, who said she is a registered independent, has long championed Democratic Party causes and some fans earlier this year tried to encourage her to run against Drumpf in 2020.

She has said she does not want to run.

“I’m here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed … I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain,” she told the audience, to cheers.

Abrams’ Republican rival, Brian Kemp, serves as Georgia secretary of state, a role in which he oversees state elections. Earlier this month, a coalition of state civil rights groups sued Kemp, accusing him of trying to depress minority voter turnout to improve his chances of winning.

 She came to Georgia because she chose to, not because anyone paid her

 She doesn’t plan on running for president

Voting is extremely important to her

‘For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn’t have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote, wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family, you are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don’t vote,” Winfrey said, adding that the right to vote is like “the crown that we all get to wear.”

Streisand revealed that she’d failed her written driver’s test three times while attempting to get her license renewed

“I was so nervous, a little bit like I am now because I have you in the car,” she told Corden. She also said that she hasn’t been driving a lot lately because her mind “is twirling” and she recently found herself driving the wrong way on the highway. “This is not what I need to hear right now,” her fellow passenger jokes.

“I thought, ‘That’s it, I’m not driving anymore,'” she said, adding, “But you’re lucky.”

“If this is how I go out, I’ll take it,” Corden jokes. “Corden died at the hands of Barbra Streisand. ‘Is she OK?’ She’s fine, thank god.”

When asked about the current political climate and how she’s coping, Streisand explained that that’s why she created the album, which is fittingly titled Walls.

‘Día De Los Muertos’

~DAY OF THE DEAD~

The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere.

The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year.

Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. This is about halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice.

It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals, along with Imbolc, Bealtaine and Lughnasadh.

Historically, it was widely observed throughout Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man.

~IT’S THE IRWINS~

I always enjoyed Steve Irwin’s shows and antics.

Didn’t follow regularly but he left an impression. His untimely death was a huge loss to his young family and the conservation movement.

It’s amazing to see how his legacy lives on through the work of his loving wife, Terri and his two enthusiastic and motivated children,
Bindi and Robert.

Wishing them success!!

We Have Only Come To Dream is a stunning release from Terry Lee Nichols and Rebekah Eden … destined to receive awards this year for the music and production values that are A+ from start to finish …

I would expect this recording to be considered into the Library of Congress or the Smithsonian Institute at some point, and hopefully as soon as possible as it deserves inclusion into one of our American Institutions …

If there is one album to make sure you get this year it is We Have Only Come To Dream.

‘A STAR IS BORN’

~RELEASE OF I’LL NEVER LOVE AGAIN~

Both Bradley and Lady Gaga performed impeccably.

The movie ends with this song.

I don’t want to give  the end away but her ‘husband’ in the movie wrote this song for her, Ally.

This song is simply incredible.

The story around it is worth watching the film.

~~Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper release ‘I’ll Never Love Again’ music video~~

I’ll Never Love Again” was one of the numbers they most wanted to keep in check until audiences had a chance to experience it in theaters.

The song appears in the last scene of the movie, and without giving too much away for those who have yet to see it, it is performed in two different interlocking settings, both by Cooper and Gaga together at a piano and by Gaga alone on stage. 

Cooper and Gaga famously sang all of their parts live during the making of the film, something Cooper insisted on, and “I’ll Never Love Again” is no exception.
