BORN THIS WAY TO DRINK CLEAN WATER – WATER ROYALTY RIGHTS FOR ALL CHILDREN OF THE WORLD

Born this way – I believe that all children of the world were born to have access to clean drinking water whenever they need it.

BTW: At the moment 1 billion people don’t. 2 million children die through not having access to clean drinking water each year.

Born this way to drink clean water – is these kids and their parents’ dream day. We can make it a dream day everyday for them. Let’s make it happen fun people, by clicking on UNICEF’S TAP PROJECT link. Let’s FLOW! Thanks groovy people.

144 ECO-FRIENDLY NUGGETS OF WISDOM by EMILE KANIM in PLENTITUDE, THE BOOK

~A wise person walks in Peace with the Earth–Emile Kanim~

Thinking green for the environment is an artform, a lifestyle based on higher thinking grounded in down-to-earth meekness, that defines wise people who make Peace with the Earth.

Emile Kanim is one such person. He is a poet, a writer, a conceptual thinker, and my friend in L.A. 

Kanim’s upcoming book, Plentitude, (June 2012 issue date), consists of 12 chapters, each chapter has 12 wise nuggets of wisdom, offering ways to be more eco-friendly in loving the world in which we live. The 11th point, in every chapter is a significant epiphany into Earth Preservation. Kinship with nature is Kingship, in this remarkable book because the Earth is always Queen. Simple and profound. 

[People come and go, but the Earth remains as the important Mother of all humanity who have ever lived, breathed, dreamed, built, planted, harvested, drank, exchanged shared stories and laughed with her. Music: Leona Lewis, singing Run]

NEW MUSIC: HELPING HAITI EVERYBODY HURTS

As reported, UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, asked Simon Cowell, to produce a charity music track for Haiti. Cowell chose REM‘s Everybody Hurts for the track.

Mariah CareyLeona Lewis, Susan Boyle, Kylie Minogue, Rod Stewart are on the track. Robbie Williams sounds amazing on it.

The song could have done with some Andrae Crouch vocal direction for the song’s finale. Andrae is the singer, who co-created  the vocal arrangements of Man In the Mirror for Michael Jackson. Everybody Hurts lacks the big finale and uplfit, utilizing all of the voices involved that Crouch could have given the song, but I still like it and it is for a good cause. A nice effort from Cowell and friends. 

Here’s the cover artwork and the music. The song can be pre-ordered here.

LEONA LEWIS GETS PUNCHED IN THE FACE AT A BOOK SIGNING

LeonaLewisGetsPunchedInTheFace

This is terrible! British singer, Leona Lewis was doing a book signing in the UK for her biography, Dreams when a 20 year-old lad, who had  been cuing in lines for Leona’s autograph, like everyone else, punched Lewis in the face.

Many media outlets reported that Leona  had been slapped, but her rep says, it wasn’t a slap it was a punch. At this point, cue Macey Gray‘s Slap A B*tch song, because that man was so crazy. What a dork!

Says her rep: “She was doing a signing to launch her new book. Hundreds of fans had been queuing since last night. A guy came up and punched her to the side of the head. She is absolutely gutted she did not get the signings finished.”

The man has been arrested. Leona Lewis is said to have left the signing in tears. What is the world coming to? The Happy singer, is understandably not very happy today. Lewis has bruising to the side of her face. Poor Leona!!!

This is the perfect time for Leona to do a cover of the Rocky theme song as a power ballad! Always come back fighting. But seriously, she needs a bodyguard like Rocky!
