The Earth Anthem penned by poet-diplomat Abhay K was translated into Portuguese and launched in Brasilia to commemorate World Environment Day.

Abhay had written the anthem in 2008, inspired by the Upanishads and the image of the Earth taken by the Apollo 17 crew. He penned it in Russia’s St Petersburg and so far it has been translated into 30 languages.

According to IANS, he said,

“Whichever country we come from, we all have our planet in common. A tribute to her in the form of an anthem, therefore, should be able to find favour with people from all countries. Such an anthem will not only connect all of us across the world through a common musical thread but will also inspire the next generation to put the planet before themselves.”

For his Earth Anthem, he was termed ‘inspiring’ by UNESCO, Habitat for Humanity, and many others. He has plans of continuing the the Earth Anthem project by collaborating with the world’s leading musicians and singers to create consecutive editions.

TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

It seems that a lot of effort has been placed in the celebration of our planet, Mother Earth.

In the United States, the ‘Environmental Protection Agency‘ was created to assure that norms and regulations were put in place to do this country’s part in the worldwide effort to protect this planet.

At the time of this writing, it looks like all those efforts are in the process of dismantling by the current EPA top official in association with the Executive branch of the current government.

That cannot be allowed. Grassroot efforts must be undertaken once again to assure that Mother Earth is protected.

In this instance, history MUST repeat itself.

Remember, there is no ‘Planet B’!

 “We need the tonic of wildness – to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Salsa Remix of “Almost Like Praying
The song was first released in October 2017 to raise funds for disaster relief in Puerto Rico.

GoldSwirl

This is what makes Puerto Ricans Puerto Ricans.

The undying spirit against adversity. My heart and soul have been aching since Hurricane María battered my country. The days after have been sadder as images come out of the utter devastation of a beautiful Caribbean Island.

The Puerto Rican spirit is battered but not broken after Maria.

At 10:30am this morning, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda released a salsa remix of “Almost Like Praying,” his single benefiting the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund for hurricane recovery and rebuilding initiatives in Puerto Rico. Spanish Broadcasting System teamed up with Miranda for a world-premiere radio launch of the remix in New York (Mega 97.9FM), Miami (El Nuevo Zol 106.7FM), and Puerto Rico (Estereotempo 96.5FM).

Miranda himself introduced the single, followed by an interview live from the SBS studios in New York City.

“The benefit single ‘Almost Like Praying’ has had tremendous success with audiences worldwide,” said Miranda. “As we now continue to help establish long-term self-sustainable initiatives to rebuild Puerto Rico, we are thrilled to bring this new version to Salsa-music fans. Although it has been over four months since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, the island still needs much help to get its most basic infrastructure up and running – including electricity, roads and bridges, healthcare and other vital programs.”

The original “Almost Like Praying” was released for download and streaming on October 6, 2017, and within its first week, hit No. 1 in digital sales in 17 countries. One hundred percent of the proceeds have gone to the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund, which has sponsored hundreds of initiatives to assist in the relief, recovery, and now rebuilding of Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory since 1898.

Super Bowl LII National Anthem Performance 🇺🇸 …. P!nk …. There was a Time when I got Chills 🇺🇸 …. “!!


PinkB

~~February 5, 2018~~ 

P!NK

I read somewhere that P!nk watched Whitney Houston’s performance of the national anthem.

It was a famous rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl XXV in 1991.

Since then P!nk wanted to sing then anthem at the super bowl.

… and that she did!

There was a time when listening to this anthem gave me chills.

Not anymore.

The reason I post this today is because P!nk sang at the superbowl and killed it.

Enjoy!

P!nk took the grand stage at Super Bowl LII to sing the national anthem just before kickoff where she paid homage to her “idol,” Whitney Houston.

This Super Bowl holds a special significance to the Grammy-winning artist as she is a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan, having spent the lead-up to the game posting snaps of her children and family rooting for the team.

Pink Nails the National Anthem Before Super Bowl LII, Despite the Flu

Despite a well-publicized battle with the flu in the days before Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia-area native Pink positively nailed the National Anthem.

Clad in a satiny white outfit and with bright blonde hair, the three-time Grammy winner was true to her badass image, removing a throat lozenge just before she began singing (and setting off a torrest of Internet memes in the process).

She played loose with the song’s timing, occasionally hitting a note just inside the tempo set by the accompanying orchestra, but hit every note with ease, at times breaking up a note or toying with the phrasing, possibly in an effort to sidestep the challenges of singing with the flu, but her voice was strong and on-point and she had little trouble holding notes.

Lin-Manuel Miranda …. “🎶 Raps with Jordan Fisher …. in Moana Music Video 🎶 …. “!!

TWO AMAZING TALENTS TOGETHER

“YOU’RE WELCOME”

I found this amazing music video yesterday when I was working on Jordan Fisher’s DWTS posts.

This is what brings joy to my heart in these hectic times.

Music is a balm for my heart and soul!

Jordan Fisher and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda star in the new music video for “You’re Welcome,” a song from the hit animated Disney film Moana. The song is heard during the end credits of the film, for which Miranda wrote part of the score and earned an Oscar nomination.

This isn’t Fisher’s first time singing a Miranda score.

The 22-year-old recently starred in his iconic musical Hamilton as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton on Broadway, a role originated by Anthony Ramos.

In the live-action video, Jordan Fisher sings through the streets of New York before getting a text from Miranda to meet him in a London recording studio, where the Broadway star slays Maui’s rap.

(Miranda can’t really come to the Big Apple, as he’s currently filming Mary Poppins Returns in the U.K.)

This version of “You’re Welcome” features on the official motion picture soundtrack.
