I love singing it's a form of connection, communication and my way of sharing with others. Being able to write songs and sing for people is a beautiful thing. I don't take it for granted and appreciate every second I am giving the opportunity.
Way back when; in 4th grade, I recall when my elementary school won the National Singing Competition three years in a roll. I wasn’t just one of the students, I was a proud member of that singing group. Oh, one of those years I was the leader. That wasn’t the end, I sang throughout high school, college and with other singing groups. I have also sang with different church choirs, led worship teams and still performing solos whenever the opportunity comes my way. Along the line, I started writing poems. After a year of Guitar lessons, my poems became songs. These songs became recorded demos, and finally, I have turned 11 of my demos into a debut Album called “We Need Peace.”
The heart and soul of this CD are based on song #3 and #10 (We Need Peace and It’s Time to Pray). The message is simply “Peace and Love.” I have many personal meanings to my songs, and other messages that relate to real life experience. Everyone can relate to them and with a lyric sheet, they are easy to sing along. I want you to feel me, because it comes from a pure and a sincere heart. With a touch of Fanti and Spanish, you can’t help but to sing and dance to these beautiful songs. I included these two languages with intention to spread my message across all boundaries and cultures. Escuche mis canciones, como Siempre te Amare y Dicelo a Cristo.
Among all great musicians past and present, gentlemen like Lucky Dube, Bob Marley, Don Williams, Kenny Rogers, and Michael W. Smith have had great impact on my life. However, I have created my unique melodies different from all other artist; and they derived from pure reggae rhythm. These sounds may be different to some people, but it is my way of reaching out to every peace loving person as well as reggae fans of all ages.
For the past ten (10) years I have been involved in Nursing Home Ministries, singing and reading to those who are sick, alone and the elderly. It is also a load of fun to be part of West Chester’s Old Fashion Christmas activities. However, on regular basis I play guitar for the Praise and Worship Band at my Church. Even though I am keeping this little light of mine blazing, I am always looking for more opportunities to be a blessing to you.
One of my goals, is to share a message of love and peace to the whole world though my music. We are different in many ways but we desire two common things in life and that is; Music and Peace. Every human has this secret love affair with music and equally cries for peace. If Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back, then I am bringing peace back
We are God’s children of equality and deserve to live in a peaceful world. Guess what, Jesus prayed that we would have peace… “Peace I leave you, my peace I give you…” He said. But, if the world is going to experience peace, it must begin with you and me. Is this too big of a dream? No, dream big, become an advocate for peace in your home, your family, community and as far as you can go. Brighten the corner where you are and together we can help change the World one person at a time.
I hope you stay a fan, and I pray for freedom, peace and justice for everyone in this crazy world. Lord, let it be. Gracias tanto y Dios bendice. When you have a moment please come visit my page at www.myspace.com/callmeikeproductions
