Wha gwan mi bruddah
(What’s going on my brother)

Nuff respect pon ya
(Much respect to you)

Irie
(nice… good… pleasing)

CHORUS
Got work to do now haven’t we seen enough
can’t let hate corrupt us
now its time to open our hearts
and see that what we really need is trust
and a little help from above.

VERSE
We both know
it wasn’t long ago
when we worked together
and even though we had troubles
I knew that you were my brother

We find ourselves so far apart
but its now or never
in the end I believe we can win

We can fix this thing together
the future’s not set in stone

Lets heal this thing forever
cause one day we’re all
going “home”
it won’t be long….

CHORUS
Got work to do now haven’t we seen enough?
can’t let hate corrupt us
now its time to open our hearts
and see that what we really need is trust
and a little help from above.

CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH

bhm2016_poster-crop-web

As a celebration of Black History Month, I attended a performance by the African American Composer Initiative which featured very special guest Valerie Capers. Valerie is a gifted pianist and composer. As a part of our musical heritage she is someone you should know… (she is the first blind graduate of the Julliard School). Aside from this, Valerie has a creative and experimental spirit. Her great personality and easy way of explaining both Classical and Jazz music with stories and humor is infectious (even to non Jazz aficionados). Below is an example from last years performance. (The fact that she’s from my hometown of New York City and that I was so comfortable with her she felt like a family member doesn’t hurt either lol). While there I even ran into some Facebook friends!

Black history is made everyday. Celebrate with these 25 African-American firsts.


 

A note of congratulations to one of my favorite causes…

As an associate of Energime University through Global Cooperation Day, I am pleased to announce that Energime University is now partnered with the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) under the auspices of an initiative directed by H.E Ban Ki-Moon, U.N Secretary-General.
