Happy Birthday Michael Jackson

Today would have been Michael’s 53rd birthday. It’s amazing he is gone. Kind of hard for me to grasp. My cousin and I had tickets to see him in London for the “This Is It” tour.

Rest in Peace! You truly deserve it!

"I Am A Man"

This powerful film addresses the “genesis” of Black male sexual, social, religious and historical experience in America and on the Continent. The voices of noted African American men and women contribute to this narrative about a rarely told story.

In Memoriam – Jerry Leiber

Celebrating the life of Jerry Leiber, part of the legendary duo songwriting team of Leiber and Stroller, who passed away of cardio pulmonary failure. He was 78.

Leiber and Stroller, were best known for writing such hits as “Stand By Me”, “On Broadway”, “Jailhouse Rock” and others. There is a great article where Jerry said he wanted to write for only black artists as he felt he was black. LOL. It’s a great article which you can read here!
Here is their hit – “Stand By Me” co-written and performed by Ben E. King
