“HEART FULL OF REALITY”

“AS THE SNOW FLIES ON A COLD AND GRAY CHICAGO MORNING A POOR LITTLE BABY CHILD IS BORN IN THE GHETTO AND HIS MAMA CRIES” PART OF THIS AMAZING SONG RESIGNATES IN MY EARS.  AS MANY OF YOU KNOW I AM A REAL SUCKER FOR LOVE BALLADS AND REAL TRUE SONGWRITERS. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A FAN OF SONWRITERS THAT TELL A STORY WITHIN THEIR MUSIC. WITH THIS BEING SAID, ONE OF THESE SONGS HAS BEEN RE INTODUCED, AND WHAT A PURE DELIGHTFUL AND TRULY MEANININGFUL SONG, THIS IS, HAVING SUBSTANCE AND REAL DEEP FEELINGS THAT DESCRIBES SO MUCH AND RINGS VOLUMES!  THE SONG WAS WRITTEN BY THE COUNTRY/ROCK CROSSOVER MUSIC ARTIST MAC DAVIS, OF “DON’T GET HOOKED ON ME” AND ” STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES” FAME.

THIS SONG THAT MAC DAVIS WROTE WAS OFFERED TO SEVERAL MUSIC ARTISTS AT THE TIME INCLUDING THE LATE ELVIS PRESLEY, WHERE ELVIS ACTUALLY DID RECORD A VERSION OF IT IN 1969, THIS RECORD SINGLE CALLED “IN THE GHETTO” AND BROUGHT THE SONG TO A NUMBER 3 SPOT ON THE AMERICAN CHARTS. AND NOW OVER 50 YEARS SINCE THE SONG HAS BEEN REMADE BY THE COURAGEOUS CHILDREN’S CENTER IN UGANDA, AFRICA, LED BY THE AMAZING AND PURE TALENTED DdUNGU JAMES. THE SONG IS VERY FITTING AND TRULY & HONESTLY TOUCHED MY HEART. ESPECIALLY  SINCE THIS AMAZING PERSON, DdUNGU, WHO HAS A HEART OF GOLD FOR THE INCREASING LEVELS OF POVERTY, HUNGER, HOMELESSNESS AND INSTABILITY BOTH AT HOME & ABROAD. WITH THIS BEING SAID. THE SUCCESS OF THIS SONG WILL ENABLE US TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS SPECIAL PROJECT AND TRY TO DO SOMETHING TO HELP THE CHILDREN AND YOUTH WHOSE FUTURE IS NOT SO CERTAIN. THIS SONG HAS ALWAYS STRUCK A CHORD WITH MY HEART AND THIS STORY THAT DdUNGO HAS PRESENTED IS A REALITY.

IF I HAVE ANY POWER TO PERSUADE OTHERS TO GET INVOLVED THIS IS THE TIME!! I AM ASKING FOR YOUR HELP. AS A WRITER I HAVE A PASSION FOR WRITING WHAT I FEEL ABOUT THE MUSIC FOR WHOM I AM WRITTING THE REVIEW FOR AND ALWAYS ARRIVES FROM MY HEART. AS A WRITER OF THIS REVIEW ON THIS ISSUE AND THIS SONG I’VE FELT COMPELLED FROM MY HEAVENLY FATHER WHO ALL MY BLESSINGS HAVE COME FROM,TO SAY THAT THIS IS AN AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL VERSION OF THE SONG “IN THE GHETTO” THE SONG SPEAKS VOLUMES OF WHAT THE CHILDREN AND YOUTH MUST BE EXPERIENCING. IF I CAN DO ANYTHING IN LIFE TO ASSIST OTHERS THAT’S WHERE I PLACE MY HEART & SOUL INTO ALWAYS HELPING OTHERS! TO QUOTE ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES ” DO WHAT YOU LOVE & HELP PEOPLE ALONG THE WAY” THAT’S WHAT I AM MADE OF AND WHAT IS IN MY DNA FOREVER. THIS IS AN AMAZING SONG CHOICE AND I’VE ALWAYS LOVED IT.

THIS VERSION WILL ALWAYS BE IMPRINTED UPON MY HEART KNOWING AND UNDERSTANDING THAT OTHERS GO THROUGH SITUATIONS THAT SOME OF US TAKE FOR GRANTED. NOT EVER TAKING ANYTHING FOR GRANTED I FEEL THAT I AM TRULY BLESSED AND HONORED TO WRITE A REVIEW ON THIS SONG AND IT’S A DIRECT CORRELATION BETWEEN REALITY AND WHO I AM AS A PERON WHO TRULY CARES ABOUT OTHERS!  THIS VERSION OF THE SONG AFTER READING ABOUT WHAT THESE CHILDREN  REALLY COMES TO LIFE. WHAT AN AMAZING AND BRAVE SONG THAT STANDS AS A BEACON FOR THE TRUTH, REALITY AND THEIR WAY OF LIFE THAT THESE CHILDREN LIVE, AS OF NOW, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PASSIONATE ABOUT CAUSES IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, BUT WITH THIS RECENT AWARENESS, COUPLED WITH THIS SONG HAS MADE ME REALIZE MY ENDURING LOVE, SUPPORT & FRIENDSHIP TO THIS CAUSE, INCLUDING DdUNGO JAMES AND THE COURAGEOUS CHILDREN CENTER UGANDA AFRICA, SPONSORED BY ELAINE PRESLEY FOUNDATION.

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. With over 30 years experience. I have been nominated for several writing awards (ie) publicist and promoter of the year also, one of the industries most revered music reviewers. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry all music artists, focusing on Indie artists, and many mainstream artists as well. Writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all music genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and "All Music Matters and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and noticed for their talent. As of date I have written well over 400 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists. My continuing wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry. With making a difference with my "Positive " music reviews through my writing style, about them & for them and reviewing their music always in a "Positive" forum.
