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,or is it? What happened?

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 spirits of Billie Holiday and Karen Carpenter

Listen for yourself! 

Meet Domino Recording Artist, Julia Holter!

Long Live Lady Day!

Happy Birthday! I Wish Whitney Houston Would Have Known Her Own Strength.***messymandella***

         Whitney Houston lived a life that humbled most, and destroyed her in the end.

Today is her birthday.

We must tell the truth about Whitney Houston. I cried, because I was in her situation,not drugs but with someone who would play the part of a different person to the public…

 

When she lost part of her heavenly voice, and her self-respect through addiction, we were confused and disappointed.

We laughed, and comedians made multiple jokes about Whitney Houston’s addiction.

No one thought it would end like this.

I want to say that Whitney Houston has always inspired me to hold your head up high and walk with pride.

Even when she wasn’t the Whitney we fell in love with, she still tried.

In fact, she was that unselfish, when she was going through her demons, she didn’t want anyone to know she was still on drugs and suffered alone.

          She dealt with her own pain, the worst way, but what sadly she assumed was the best thing for her life.

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

 

People who love you and care, will not hurt you or destroy your creativity with stupidity or insist you make decisions that could destroy your ability to showcase your talent, or diminish your inner strength.

It is sad, that her personal life overshadowed everything she did professionally.

Her life can be our lesson in self-evaluation. You can never carry people that WILL NEVER carry you.

She looked like a fool in the public eye and she suffered in pain and maybe that is why she turned to drugs?

She didn’t tell the world she still needed Help.

I wish she knew her  worth, there will never be a voice to rival hers.

You  can’t be around someone who does not want anything in life,or just will cause you pain because they can.

You must know your self-worth and believe in your talent! Never associate with someone who doesn’t have your best interest at heart.

If that person cares they will help you career, not sidetrack it to cause pain or drama or interfere with your fan base and family perception.

I hope other women realize that even with beauty, determination, and talent the person you love the most could be the worst thing that ever happened to you.

Too bad, when you realize it, you can see what all you passed up, and lost of your own talent, time, and well-being.

Love yourself,

Thank you Whitney.

Thank you for your beauty and voice. We love you, still.  I just wish you would have known your own strength.
