Billie Holiday “Strange Fruit” And Julia Holter – “World” ***messymandella***

           Have you ever been hypnotized or lifted up to another place or captivated by an original voice? With technology anyone can auto tune a singing voice. You can’t auto-tune talent. Two women with 2 different backgrounds and decades of musical separation, intrigue those that believe a unique voice is not something you can create in a studio. A voice is a gift, or as in this case, a warning to the world of confusion, and the state of the world we live in . You hear  a painful, but hauntingly beautiful  voice, but were you also listening?

                   If you have not had a chance to experience this phenomenal,  these two women will definitely relax and trouble you because of the heart-felt pain, but elaborate similarities of  their voices.


The music of the late Billie Holiday, still transforms historians because of the pain.
The demons that tortured Billie,  in her destructive life also tortured the late Whitney Houston. Yes, life plaques celebrities with beauty and talent even if it is more than  40 years apart.

Artist will usually have one addictive down-fall,  because their talent is too powerful to contain, and even in the case of Whitney, Cissy said her talent scared her.

I also deal with that  the feeling, of wondering ,”Why am I seeing this, How can I create this? Why am I telling these stories?”

       That melancholy  voice transforms the electricity in your  body, and it can’t escape you. You can imagine standing where Billie Holiday stood, when she first saw that body swinging from that tree. It is history, pain and struggle and a gift  that was merely too intense for one person to contain.


       Julia’s  Holters’ voice might be the last sound you hear before you leave this earthly life. It is a heavenly but depressing voice that haunts most. It  is time to listen and judge the similarities in this songs and the beauty of both women, with different backgrounds, decades, and musical training that captivate any audience. Julia will leave her own space in history. 

         We also know some of the best voices of our time, are barely heard and sadly will not reach that well deserved pinnacle of success. Hip Hip would not be anything, without samples, musical exploration and a vast appreciation to open your mind, and step away from the mundane. Create your own sound, and make your name and voice that next generations will appreciate. Billie Holiday died in 1959 and we still appreciate the gift and curse that she left behind.

You know when you hear Julia’s voice, that this will be the last song you will sing.

Never  have I heard a voice so transforming, as this Domino Recording Artist.

Is she telling you good-bye, for good?

What is you trying to escape?

Julia Holter appears to be  possessed with the ghosts of Billie Holiday and Karen Carpenter.

Listen for yourself!

Meet Domino Recording Artist, Julia Holter!

Long Live Lady Day!

 

 

Someone Help Bring Closure For William “Fernando” Barnes AKA DJ Nando!***messymandella***

 
Rapper DJ Nando, a popular Strip Club DJ, was shot execution style outside of his dwelling. Some coward pulled the trigger from behind, and released the bullet into the back of his head, without any afterthought.We have lost faith in humanity and in each other and respect for our people. Whomever ended William Fernando Barnes life doesn’t know they are committing the exact vicious hatred as the Klu,Klux Klan. One less minority man breathing, or one that will end behind bars for one action that could have been avoided with self-control and communication.
 
        DJ Nando only spent 38 Years on this earth. That is a tragedy, but he lived longer that Lil Snupe, Lil JoJo, and Lil Phat also potentially celebrities cut down before their career catapulted into mainstream!
 
  Once again, Any coward that shoots you in the back of the head is not man enough to even confront you and has no regard for human life. While DJ Nando was leaving his show at approximately 3:00 A.M his life was stolen without any regard. No fight or argument took place, just him walking and a bullet to the back of his head.
 
nan
 
        Now when women go to bed at night they don’t worry if a man is cheating, they are frightened when they don’t receive  that text or tweet just to make sure that he is still breathing. Real Talk!
 
     We have created our own jungle and the worms have no loyalty or ability to understand why these incidents should not happen.
 
         According to all accounts, DJ Nando appeared to have the qualities of a positive person that enjoyed his work as a DJ, since he has been a part of the DJ scene for at least 12 years. Rapper DJ Nando already solidified his place in the DJ world, but that wasn’t enough! He wanted other DJ’s to receive national recognition in the Art and gain prominence in  his community!
 
         This initiative and determination birthed the movement of him and his peers as a DJ collective the “Coalition DJ’s.” If a man reached his pentacle of success but would still mentor other DJ’s that in itself gives the impression of a humble, free-hearted soul.
 
      This blood bath and Roster of men in the Urban scene is increasing at a steady rate. The families of the departed are  left wondering, “What could have been?” This killing is a harmful deterioration for our community. These are   the incidents that  FOX News feeds into and biasly enjoy reporting.  Our accomplishments are overshadowed by Animal-like instincts of a few with no sense of respect.
 
        
 
          I can’t type fast enough to send my condolences for all of our street soldiers, that are fighting a make belief self-propelled war. This war is  just reverse racism with the ending plan of the extinction of the minority man. Women are having to get their children dressed to see daddy through the glass window, or before the casket door closes.
 

 
I did not ever meet this DJ, and sadly never will…
 
      I love our men and if no one else cares enough in the media to demonstrate their importance. I will remember and announce their accolades and  contributions in life!
 
I pray for his family and friends.
 
Everyone has a story, and  I  believe he was more than just a random shooting story in the news.
 
Someone is in agony and distress right now over the end of DJ NAndo’s life and I am hugging them in spirit!
 
R.I.P.
 
 I pray for justice and vindication in this  life for the victim. It is only January 14th, 2014 and Doe B, Mazarati Fox, and DJ Nando are no longer alive.
 
Sorry for the lost to anyone that knew William, but the News Outlets will give an emotionless account of the events of that night. To some in the news world he was just another minority shot and murdered.
 
He deserves better than that, and his life meant something to someone.
 
Life is so precious, and fleeting especially for a coward that can’t even look a man in his eyes before he ends his unfinished life.
 
Praying for an ending to this foolishness!
 
Love Through Tears
 
***messymandella***was your family member, wouldn’t you demand justice? In our community, once the news story has died, so is the interest and the prioritiy is lessened by the month, and we cry and mourn but after out bereavement, we find another issue to invest in a a new cause to focus on and solve,and we forget.
 
           We also  get invested in another  topic to bring awareness to  and also utilize for out own self-advancement .
 
           The news doesn’t allot valuable time on Cold Cases. Someone in our county  has insight on his untimely demise. 
 
          He is six feet deep, and someone  decided to steal his life. 
 
     He can’t fight for himself. We must let them know you can’t just murder your brothers and sisters and not expect karma and physical justice. Don’t give up on your loved ones because the  bias media forgot about them, just pretend it was your cousin and he was shot in his head, by a coward after returning home. You would want justice!
 
           Justice would not only be required, it would be only stipulation let’s make it mandatory, so the coward can receive their own justice and punishment.

 
 

 
 

Real Women Have Curves!***messymandella***

Bobby Brown -Every Little Step (1989) ***messymandella***

Playaz Circle – Duffle Bag Boy ft. Lil Wayne ***messymandella***

Bobbi Kristina Brown, You Keep Fighting!***messymandella***

 

          Bobbi Kristina Brown, you  are still in our prayers, up high.

 
When you take the time to look inside  yourself use Whitney as your example.

        Whitney taught me never to have anyone in your life that will publicly destroy or diminish your brand or cause scandal.

        I wish and pray  Bobbi Kristina will finally have her story told through her eyes, without the tabloid scandal.She deserves people in her life, that have her best intrest,and not only want her inheritance.

She is still a child.

 

       Don’t let anyone steal your time with their drama, and end up diminishing  your prominence and vision.

People who love you and care, will not hurt you or destroy your creativity with stupidity. Bobbi deserves the love and a support system of positive and loving people.

Once deceptive souls realize you are worth millions they will systematically break you down with every motive under the Sun.

         Brain dead, physical death and whatever terminology  is being used to describe Bobbi are not technically important at this moment. What is important is how and when the families coming together, burying the hatchet and setting aside their  own differences to make things right for Bobbi in the near future.

     I am sure Whitney is sending her daughter love  and is torn between wanting her there with her, or letting her stay here with us a little longer, to carry out her dreams.
 
       Whatever decision is made, we must remember God is in control. He is watching Bobbi, and  we love you and you are not alone.
