STOP THE CRY 

Dating back to 2009, when I received a phone call from a Gospel artist by the name of Filomeno Lopes. We met while both of us were ministering for the Jubil Gospel Music conference in San Remo, Italy. So to fast-forward he contacted me to come to Rome to participate in a campaign for UNICEF. 

The project Child Eyes was launched, Filameno and I lost contact over the years, and recently Filomeno wrote me to say that everyone from his country Guinea-Bissau has the voice of Habaka in their minds and hearts from the UNICEF Campaign. I was very humbled to hear that, because I never thought more about the collaboration that I had done with him for UNICEF, all I knew is that Filomeno asked me to be a part of it, and I gladly volunteered.

I'M JUST LIKE YOU 

Father's Day weekend has come and gone.  To my surprise, I was so busy this year, that I didn't have much time to meditate on the fact that my father was not here with me.  And it was a different feeling for me this year.  I mean, I miss him for sure.  Singing the entire weekend, lotted me the opportunity to give homage to my father with joy.  I remembered the story of while being his caregiver, as I was walking out of the kitchen, my father looked at me and said; "Oh my God! Your just like me" and I said; "huh yes daddy; I'm just like you, a musician." 

I pray all Father's had a memorable Father's Day celebration.

It's official and orders are being placed.  I'm very excited to make this launch.  Pussycat Eyewear by Habaka Kfj is now available for purchase. This exclusive hand crafted eyewear, made in Italy started out on my EP CD cover "Just Say I Love Him", and on my latest CD cover entitled "Heritage Blue".  

Everyone wanted to know how they could get a pair of these glasses.  Well, now you can.  "They come in two classic colors (tortoiseshell and black) which means this eyewear will never be out of style.  

You make them your own, by adding your prescription lens if need be.  They can be made with transitioning lenses or as sunglasses as well.  Or you can have tinted color lenses or not.  It's totally up to you how you want to create your unique style. 

I love receiving photos from my clients, showing off their new sexy look. Not only do they look good on everyone that gets them, but surprisingly they are...  "Purrrrrrrrrrfectly You"

THE BIRDHOUSE 

I love watching birds, always have since I can remember.  I bought this tiny little birdhouse from a cute couple in Las Vegas about two years ago at a flea market.  While I was standing there chatting with them I learned that the husband built all of these wonderful birdhouses by hand, and the one I had chosen in particular was special because the roof of the birdhouse came from an old barn in Connecticut and the wood was more than 50 years old.  

Not only that; this couple had lost their daughter and she was an avid believer in helping the shelter for homeless children.  So they started a foundation in her name, and by selling items that they mainly made by hand since he could build these incredible birdhouse's and his wife could knit and sew, all of the monies made at the market, they would go and buy brand new tennis shoes for the homeless children in the shelter.   

What really stayed in my mind was that, these children (the majority) were homeless because their parents had left them behind after gambling in the casino and loosing all their money.  I just couldn't imagine that being legal to happen, but it is.   I didn't mean to take the story there, but that is what remained in my mind.   

So Happy Earth Day, and remember that the making of this little birdhouse to give birds shelter, was also used to collect monies to give to the homeless children that are being cared for in these shelters.   Hugs

SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE  

Since returning to the US from my winter European tour, I've had the opportunity to perform in Las Vegas at a few jazz clubs here in Las Vegas.  So as you saw, of course on my last blog post, while I was singing at the Cork & Thorn in Tivoli Village, Al B. Sure came in and enjoyed the show.  

So fast forward; I performed last Sunday at the event Chill Out Sundays "Unplugged" hosted by none other than radio personality Lankston T Carter of KUNV 91.5 radio.  While performing at the Artisan Boutique Hotel towards the end of the night Skip Martin, trumpeter and vocalist came in and serenaded us as well.  I'll just say, it was a great night!

INCOGNITO  

Well, I performed for the very first time at this little quaint club by the name of Cork & Thorn, that is also a flower store during the day!  You heard me correctly, it's a flower shop during the day and a Jazz Club in the evening.  

The story goes like this, I went to meet a couple of my girlfriends that had been telling me I needed to stop by and meet the owner so that I could possibly get booked to perform.  So I finally arrived to hear the guitarist by the name of Dirk.  I sat in and sang a song with him, and as they say the rest is history.  

Fast forward I performed there on April 12th with a wonderful pianist/saxophonist by the name of Wayne Grey and towards the end of the night, who comes in and sits at the bar but Al B. Sure.  I didn't know that it was him when he walked in and I really didn't see his face because his back was to me almost the entire time that he sat there chatting with the club owner.  

We finish the night and the owner walks up to me and says, I'd like you to meet my dear friend Al B. Sure.  I was totally surprised and needless to say I was able to get a shot with him.  He said he enjoyed the show and was very cordial and we even realized that he knew my father.  

Indeed it's a small world and you just never know who you will meet, whether it be in a huge venue or a small intimate venue. Always be at your best, because you never know who you will meet.  Stars are born just in that way. Lol Hugs
