SPEAK NOW RELEASE
On June 12, 2015 was the day of the release of the anthem song "Speak now" that I wrote and composed for Foundation Project Speak Now. Last year I co-directed the video which is part of the release. The song has been produced and mixed for the video by Murat Yoleri, the backing vocals are done by musical star Nurlaila Karim. During 2 weeks (june 12 to 30) I will be part of the Speak Now campaign, to raise my voice on child abuse. You can also be part of this by joining the Facebook event.
Together with the foundation we hope to achieve at least 1000 people to join us online. So check this out! And see what else you can do to help or to find help: www.speaknowcampagne.nl (in Dutch)
PROJECT SPEAK NOW
I am proud to be ambassador of Project Speak Now to help others to express themselves after having the experience of sexual abuse in childhood. On July 5, 2013 I sang a short version of 'Little Butterfly' during the broadcast of the Dutch TV-program 'Recht uit het hart' where Marianne, founder of Project Speak Now, shares her story and I sing the song inspired by her experience. (at 29:50min) See the video. Check: www.projectspeaknow.nl and www.mariannekimmel.nl
'Together we stand' is a song (Lyrics and music) about world peace that I wrote especially for the MasterPeace Music above fighting Competition in 2014. (www.masterpeace.org/mymusic) I wrote, rehearsed and recorded this song, wrote the script, organised a flashmob and recorded the video within 2 weeks. Check out my video: 'Together we stand'
NEW ALBUM "Rhythm of life"
Currently I am working on my new album "Rhythm of life" in which I blend several musical influences and create my own new sound for chakra meditation, yoga and dance. I look forward to work with different musicians and go on tour one day, this might take a few more years. Due to health issues I am studying the chakras more deeply and going through the full experience of the healing process. I put all the inspiration that I receive into my new music. In the meantime I will release my first meditation sounds the end of 2015.
Together with with my composing partner Ties van der Linden I released my first album in 20-11-2011. The 11 songs of FLOW are inspired by love and the belief in life. My belief is that when we live through love, when we believe in ourselves, we receive a positive vibe that makes us happy and be in a flow. On the album FLOW you hear my voice and lyrics. Feel free to check www.fonofactory.com of Ties van der Linden who did the composing, editing, recording and mastering in his FonoFactoryStudio (NL). Flow has been released by the Rhodês Records label.
