Aurelia's Highlights

Carolyn Malachi

From Washington, DC's rich Blues, Jazz, Spoken Word, GoGo and R&B music scene emerges CAROLYN MALACHI with a fresh blend of music that garners international praise, including MTV naming her an R&B artist “to obsess over”. 

 

Leon Timbo

He lifts his voice and something just like magic happens.  His first note.  The enchantment.  Your heart opens.  Then you smile.  Leon Timbo delivers everything you need in music. You listen and you know its genuine.  Raw, jagged, unrefined soul laced with pure, silky, captivating vocals.  He delivers transparency.  With every emotionally enriched, love-centric tune, his transparency forces us to also be transparent.

 

Will Downing

He started his career in the early 80's.  Known as "the prince of sophiscated soul," Will Downing is an artist that continues to elevate our ears with his music by never leaving us empty.  He is a music machine with a discography that has given us something to listen to almost yearly.  With every note you feel the love he has for his music.

Love in the light so they can see you smile!

Shows we love

As we all get older we often wonder what gems the future will grace us with.  We are fotrunate to have one on the show.  Her name is Maya Belardo, the Princess of Jazz.  A recent high school graduate, she finds Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald to be her favorite artist she hold close to her heart.  The preservation of our various art forms are so important and this young lady has taken the baton and proudly carries it for one of our most cherished art forms, Jazz.  We are both honored and proud to have her as a representative.

Comment

Over the years of doing the radio show, we have had some amazing guests.  To say that each guest didn't have an impact in some way would be an insult.  The amazingly talented individuals we've shared the microphone with have changed the world with their actions.  It makes one wonder what impact each of us has on the planet.  I don't think any of us wake up with the mission to change the world, some of us do, but we have to remember that we are all on this planet for a reason and purpose, predetermined by the Heavenly Father.  Oftentimes, many of us try to run from that which we are called to do.  But when we follow the plan amazing things happen. 

 

This show, this platform is a prime example of witnessing how amazing things happen.  We have had some guests on the show who were the first in their industry to do that special thing.  For example, Antonio Fargas was the first black male to portray a transgender female in a major movie, Car Wash.  Little did he know that his performance was setting the stage for today's depiction of a society of people who are societal norms.  Another example is Nora Mae Carmicahel, a self-taught artist, was the first Harlem artist to create a Christmas Tree Ornament for the White House by Laura Bush, paving the way for other artists of color to be acknowledged in a bigger arena.  Yet another example is the R&B group Full Force, one brother Bowlegged Lou gave stem cells to Paul Anthony, his brother, to  help save his life so that they can continue to make more music, bringing awareness to the importance of faith, determination, family and perservence when dealing with illness.

 

Many of our guests have come from adverse circumstances that ordinarily would have you feeling stuck and powerless to change.  However, they had that little voice that continued to push them to practice, change, follow their dream  and press on regardless of the obstacles.  I've provided a few examples of people who have impacted me in a special way.  I hope you take a moment to listen to some of our past shows to learn some of the lessons they shared about their journey through life, to stardom.  We are all built with this in our DNA, now what you do with it depends on you.

 

Be all you believe you could be and be happy doing it!

 

Peace,

Aurelia
