For some reason this song really resonates with me right now.
Alexis Jordan entered America’s Got Talent at the tender age of 14 and has come a long way since then- Jay Z is now her manager! She is in good hands 🙂

In light of the apocalyptic catastrophe that has devastated our Haitian family, I dedicate this week’s Sunday Session to their Healing. Their Future. Their Children. Our Healing. Our future. Our children.
We Are The World.
(Different cause, consistent message)
Do what you can.
God bless Haiti.

MUSIC IS LIFE.
So even though I was absolutely mash up after five fantastic days (and nights) showing my Brazilian brother @JonathasBarreto the wonders of London town, I ended up down @iluvlive this evening, mainly due to me checking out Jessie J’s MySpace and falling in love *swoon*…
I WAS BLOWN AWAY.
Think Maxwell, Dwele, Eric Roberson, D’Angelo (the best years) and Calvin Richardson. Then forget them all. Watch this, and TRY to imagine it’s beauty live, you won’t get the half, but it’s worth it for the half alone:
Women were CRYING. Really.
Check his MySpace for his original works and further blessing.
I found him backstage after his performance (that’s such a crap word) – can I call it a ‘soul-sermon-sung'(?) and got on my knees and bowed before him. (no blasphemy)
I don’t really know where to start. I became a fan today after seeing the Twitter hype about this beautiful lady and checking her out online. Her talent is outofthisworld. She is also damn sexay. Swagger of a true Princess. Aura of of a Queen…
As soon as I arrived I searched her out and tried a chirpsing ting. I failed to get the digits *sigh* but I think she got the jist…
I was there to see her!
She is already, deservedly, making international waves having written the ‘Party in the USA‘ smash that is sung by Miley Cyrus and gave us a cheeky exclusive rendition of the original version as she wrote it- ‘ESSEX PARTY’!
Here is my fav song outta the ones she blessed us with. It shows how cool she is too! Imagine it live (again, the half is worth the time) with a room full of music-loving Jessie-wanting singalongers. BLISS.
Check the Princess’ MySpace for more joy.
I had such a blessed evening I have personally e-mailed the organiser my thanks and appreciation. If you attended and wish to do the same hit up Racheal at Impact Ventures.
With UK talent like this getting recognised and moving up and out, no one can contest the fact that the UK music industry is standing up, standing tall and proud and making waves.
I am so excited for these guys and their bright futures. May they continue to shine their talent on us, warming our souls, and the souls of many more, for many years to come.
To get on guestlist for i luv live, which is on with a fresh new line-up every Monday at Proud Galleries, Camden, e-mail my sweetheart firstname.lastname@example.org
MUSIC IS LIFE.
Peace, Love and Treble Clefs x

This weekend has been tricky. By nature I am a total pacifist. However, when my family is threatened or hurt this monstrously fearless adrenaline junkie chicita turns up and takes charge. She’s a handful. In light of her current presence, I have no choice but to pick a track for this Sunday Session that represents her very nature. Also, it’s a T.U.N.E. Naturally.

In light of this time of year, with its offer of new beginnings, fresh starts and positive changes, I’ve chosen a beautiful track about Newness…
And remember if you want it to, every moment offers the chance of a new beginning.
Here’s to Newness. Here’s to learning. Here’s to more of the good stuff.

As this is my Christmas Sunday Session,
I want it to be some food for thought….
I’m sure you all have eaten enough by now but this is Mind Food.
Heart Food even.
So here is a track which first blessed me when I heard it over 5 years ago during my Youth Leadership Training with Oasis. It was one of the many tracks that made up the soundtrack to that fantastic gap year.
Christmas is the season for giving. And it never hurts to think about giving to the World at large, our family.
