Needing more favorite music—What’s yours? October 27, 2008

Granted Cold Play’s Viva La Vida has a well-earned spot as my favorite listen of the summer and will definitely become a classic for me. Yet it can’t be my only music, much as I love it. Lately, I’ve also become a big fan of Bubbles and Cheesecake. And been listening to Mary J. Blige’s Growing Pains and anything Al Green. But I need more—what’s your favorite music?

 

A Girl with Real Soul September 26, 2008

Angel McKenzie isn’t your average Roots-Rock and Soul singer. She has a mission in her music, specifically to use her songs as a vehicle to spotlight poverty and hunger with her AMcK Initiative. Musical activities include staging benefit concerts/food drives, where the audience comes out to enjoy great music in exchange for food donations. After each show the collected food is turned over to a local food rescue agency for distribution to the needy. That officially makes Angela a beautiful person inside and out. Check out her soulful music here.
