and acknowledging of our leaders, the inventions, discoveries
and accomplishments throughout history by
Marley, the Reggae Icon and Superstar is considered to be the
preeminent Ambassador of Reggae to the World and the Rastafarian
Religion of Ethiopia.
A couple of days ago, specifically on Tuesday, February 6,
marked what would have been the 62nd anniversary of his
birth.- he was born Robert Nesta Marley
on February 6, 1945.
Bob had become Reggae's most transcendent and iconic
figure, and he was the first Jamaican artist to achieve
international superstardom, while in the process he introduced the
music of his native island to the nations of all corners of the
what I have read about Bob it is clear that he had lots of flaws
and actually endured many failures.
He was born poor and was given no breaks in life, it also
seemed he had to fight for everything he managed to get in his
life and in his music.
However, somehow he managed to rise to the top with his
music that talked about the hardship one goes through and one's
day-to-day struggles, he expressed in his music the plight of his
country (Jamaica) being improvised, oppressed and about the
spirituality that remains the source of strength for many their.
Most of all though, his music talked about faith, devotion,
revolution and about peace, love and unity.
Music that brought people from all walks of life together,
because in some way all of us were enduring the same issues and
Bob truly impacted so many of our lives around the world
and made it a lot easier for all of us to walk through life a bit
calmer and easier because of his powerful words in his music.
He left a legacy and has paved a way for generations of
He is a true legend and we must acknowledge and
congratulate his achievements.
I ask myself if Bob was alive where would he be today?
Would he have been this famous?
I strongly believe he would have, because of the messages
in his music and the love everyone around the globe had for him.
We certainly lost a legend 26 years ago on May 11th,
February 11th 2007, Bob Marley will be honored by his
song “One Love” being inducted to the Recording Academy’s
Grammy Hall of Fame.
It will join a select group of other tunes that have been
judged to be among the most important and lasting recordings in
This song was recorded in 1977 on the “Exodus” album,
according to Mr. Christopher John Farley (author of the Bob
Marley’s Biography “Before the Legend: The Rise of Bob Marley)
“the lyrics of “One Love” were more informed by the teaching
But the song was broader than a single doctrine.
It was a tune for people of all faiths and all backgrounds
to find themselves in.
wasn’t just a song about unity – it came to embody the
concept as well.”
Mr. Farley further stated ““One Love” is, of course,
a Jamaican Reggae song, but most listeners don’t see it as being
part of any region – it has been embraced around the globe as an
anthem to the human spirit.
The song’s title has also become a greeting – people
the world over will say hello and good bye with the words “One
A few years ago, the BBC chose “One Love” as the song
of the century.”

Trinidadian Performing & Recording Artists with exceptional
talent and appeal and was a popular pianist and singer in the
1940s. She was also the first black woman to have her own TV
Ms. Hazel Scott was born in Trinidad on June 11, 1920, and she was
best known as a Classical and Jazz Pianist.
At the early age of 3 she was playing the piano, at 4 her
family migrated to America, and by her 8th birthday she
performed in New York City and received a scholarship to study
Classical music at the Julliard School of Music.
age 13 She had her first recital, and at 14 in
1934 Ms. Scott appeared at Apollo Theater in Harlem where her
mother Ms Alma Scott was performing as a saxophonist in the
supporting band. In late 1934 she also performed
Tchaikovsky's "Concerto No.1 for Piano and Orchestra" at
Carnegie Hall. At 15 she was touring with her mothers band
"The American Creolians" and was performing in Bars and
Nightclubs. In 1936 at age 16 she had her own radio show and
in 1938 at age 18 she made her stage debut on Broadway with the
Broadway revue "Sing Out the News"
Scott appeared in the production called "Priorities of
1942" and played twice at the famed Carnegie Hall in New
York. She starred in several films: "Something To Shout
About"; "I Dood It"; "Broadway Melody";
"The Heat's On" and "Rhapsody in Blue"
1945 Hazel Scott married the Rev.
Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. who was a noted Congressman, preacher
and editor. Neither Scott or Powell shied away from
controversy, nor were they shy about taking a public stand against
racial injustices. When the Daughters of America Revolution
refused to allow her to perform in Washington's Constitution Hall,
Scott and Powell made a federal case of it, leading to protests
and calls from the group to lose its Chapter for its
Scott released several dozen albums. Her most famous hit was
"Tico Tico" and her style is a Stride/Boogie Woogie
popular in the 40's. In the late 1940s, Ms. Scott became the
first black woman to host her own television show, which she lost
in 1950 when she was accused of being a Communist
sympathizer. She refused to perform in segregated theaters
and became an outspoken critic of both the McCarthyism and racial
injustice. To overcome being accused of being a
Communist Sympathizer she volunteered to testify before the House
Un-American Activities Committee and her testimony drew praise.
her divorce from Rev. Powell in 1956 she moved to Paris and lived
there for five years. In the 1960's, she returned to the
U.S. and to her television and nightclub career.
Scott was called a "musical chameleon" for her ability
to shift from Jazz to Classical to Blues, she credits her
Jazz techniques to Art Tatum and Teddy Wilson who were her
personal friends. Because of her combination of the two
approaches to piano in classical and jazz this made Ms. Hazel
Scott an outstanding contributor to music.
continued to perform until she died from Cancer in 1981.
Below are few quotes from Ms. Hazel
" I have always respected
everyone's religion. As I say, there is only one God and a lot of
"I think we musicians are emissaries. Every time
we go before the public, we're there to make converts."
"I've always known I was gifted, which is not
the easiest thing in the world for a person to know, because
you're not responsible for your gift, only for what you do with
"There's a time when you have to explain to your
children why they're born, and it's a marvelous thing if you know
the reason by then."
"There's only one free person in this society,
and he is white and male."
"We can either be ugly and contemptuous in our
behavior, which will turn people off, or else we can carry
ourselves with dignity and pride."
"Who ever walked behind anyone to freedom? If we
can't go hand in hand, I don't want to go."

Those who are heading (home) to Trinidad for Carnival, I hope you have lots of
funs. However, please be safe and take good care. From all the
reports crime is at it's highest. This week I received an e-mail from one of our
on-line family for all of us to say a prayer for Trinidad. Please take a
moment to say this pray for T&T, and when you do so please remember the
increase in crime and killings is not only taking place in Trinidad, but it is
taking place in Jamaica as well as in many cities here in the United States,
including our area here in Washington DC/Baltimore Maryland, so when you say
this prayer keep all these cities, countries and other places in mind.
Heavenly Father, we come to you today, humbly lifting up our country Trinidad
and Tobago, we ask Lord that you remove that dark cloud that has settled over
our land. We know that with you all things are possible, and trust in
your love for the restoration of Peace, Love and Community in our country.
Influence our leaders so that they can find an effective solution to restore
law and order. We pray that you breathe a fresh breath over our land and
remove all lawlessness, murder, road accidents, immorality and corruption as
well as all forms of divination which are against your will. Lord
because we believe that you are Powerful and Mighty we place our Country in
your hands and promise that we will do our best in our daily lives to stay
focused on you. Thank you Father, AMEN
next week, please have a great weekend and thanks for all your support!
