CHHHHHHHHHHEESE GRIN - and a minor heart attack!


Abr 1 2008, 23h52

So this morning I am checking out my websites as usual and guess who wrote me a note? AMEL LARRIEUX.

[ &]


Okay, did I say AMEL?

Beyond cheesing while staring at her icon in my inbox,
I almost fell out my chair! I said to myself, "are u for real?" I winced my eyes a couple of times and then I said I gotta read the note. As I was reading it, I was playing Amel Larrieux's new album, Lovely Standards. The song I was listening to was I Like the Sunrise which was a song written by Nina Simone. Amel did a superb job in covering it. Ms. Simone would be proud!

Bless you Amel! I left a blog post for you on myspace but if others are curious to what I said I dedicated this song here to her: Heaven by BeBe and CeCe Winans. Continue to keep a spiritual connection in your life! I can TESTIFY.

Music - Heaven by BeBe & CeCe Winans

Actually, I dedicated the song also to Taalam Acey and to Maxwell.

Now be good, share the joy between you three and spread the vibe through living a full filling life! I love y'all like the air I breathe for your art truly touches me.

Man, I feel not worthy for your interaction with me because I don't want y'all (I'm Southern so that is why I talk with a southern DRAWL - well, that is for you to find out!) to think I am crazy with all my blogs about you but it is all done in sincerity in spreading the word. The positive word of your work. I cannot keep it a secret of how powerful and re-affirming your work is to the world. My bond to you is all through verse and melody. I am EXTREMELY grateful for the extension of your kindness towards me and know I will always continue to praise you and give you STRENGTH as long as I can come up for air (as Amel sings!).

Amel, Maxwell and Talaam Acey have been given praises in my group -'s positive flow. You have to be my friend on to get in! I am just ONE person who is an appreciator and fan of their gifts so I do my best! Remember it takes a team to spread a positive flow. Let's continue to be loving, kind and sincere to one another. And, if you are a meanie then I will continue to pray for you.

Also check out their profiles and journals (scroll across the top and you will see a tab for journals and click that. All the journals written by 2Serenity is me.) :

Amel Larrieux Update

Amel is going to be in JAPAN JAPAN JAPAN! Check her myspace page for the dates: To all my Japanese friends and everyone who has not explored Amel please please do yourself a favor and go to, and BUY all her CDs now.

REMEMBER IT IS ABOUT THE ART/MUSIC! There is a spiritual connection there for me. And, you need to read up on what I have been trying to express: Please check out this book - This is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession by Daniel J. Levitin.

I am obsessed with art for it continues to feed me. I am high off of music and life. What more may I ask for? For God to continue to guide and bless me. If you have not listened to Joel Osteen's recent sermon please listen to Sermon #381 - We Can Pray Bold Prayers through iTunes or go to

If you listen to it then you will understand where I stand in my faith. I pray bold prayers which are sincere. I do not ask for much but for people to be respectful of one another, a roof over my head and food to keep me alive until he calls me home. I honestly am that simple but I know some people are not.

Everyday, every hour and every minute I thank God for my blessings. You never know how long you will be on this Earth, and I thank God for giving me the opportunity to be alive for 34 years.

    AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I'm so happy for you!!!! That is INCREDIBLE!!! You are so lucky :) Just goes to show--yet again--what an incredible person Amel is and how dedicated she is to her fans! I am honored to call myself one of them :) I don't know if this is too personal, but what did she write to you? If you want to keep it to yourself, I totally understand. Ahhh this is so awesome...first Maxwell and now Amel, both in the same week!!! You deserve it :) (((2Serenity)))

    You checked your inbox, soprano?! He he;) Amel is dedicated to her fans! I knew that from jump and without a hesitation. I just hope other people continue to discover, love and embrace her. I had no idea of the impact my little words had on others for some of my friends have bought her albums and are zany like me when we hear AMEL!

    @jazzyrandy - are you on or as one of Amel's friends. Send her a comment! She does read them. I hope she don't hate me for always BLASTING her good graces all over the web but she deserves it. She actually reads over in her fan forum a lot - So, if you have a chance join and say HI!! I think you may like the forum. I recruited some of the people in the forum to come here to to be part of her group.

    Duke Ellington actually wrote "I Like The Sunrise". Nina - as well as Amel - covered his song.
