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!

 

 

Unsung Model And First Black Cover Girl, Lana Ogilvie***messymandella***

          I would flip through magazines growing up and blossoming into a petite little woman with a colossal personality, and noticed someone too intriguing and confident for further description at that moment.

         While striving and demanding equal right are important to leave your mark, even if unsung by the greatest, her legacy has proof and she deserves her acknowledgement for not only involving her body  just her nude Instigram photos every other day,  to become “famous!”

           We are more than that just  how are thighs are and how much are body can be shown for people who don’t deserve a peek at it. Our appearances are only a miniscule block  of the foundation that composes our existence, and makes you that woman you will become and you will regret the time you wasted, on the superficial. You have the right to love your body, but there is so much more than that, you could be advertising on-line.

I already made my mind of what Gorgeous meant, and who was the fashionable woman who would be my fashion muse until I gazed at Lana.

           Once I left my high-end job of cooking chicken at Hardees and smelling like a chicken pit and covered with flour every other day;I still maintained my hair styles and kept my Cover Girl powder and wet and wild lipstick on stand by.
I would escape into my own world and buy myself three magazines with my Hardees check, because I was filthy rich. Yup, rolling in chicken flour and dough…

  Lana Ogilvie created a vast amount of opportunities for women of color,and she should be paid homage to buy every model of color.

Lana  still remains current in the model agency and as stunning as she was  over 20 years ago. This lady is a trailblazer for all women in the industry.
