Happy MLK Day

So, I know I’m one day late for my weekly reflection; however, I don’t have internet at my new place yet, and I was unable to get to a hotspot yesterday. I’m currently on a bolt bus on an impromptu trip to Philadelphia, though, which allowed me to get internet, too! Why this trip? Well, depending on what happens, I’m sure it’ll be cause for future posts (cliffhanger?)…

So, this past week was pretty awesome. The show I participated in on Thursday had some amazing performances. I got a great reception, and people seemed to really appreciate my music. I had such a blast watching the other performers, though. The show started off with an energetic percussion piece, ended with a vivacious African dance piece, and included soulful singing, ballroom dancing, house music, and more in the middle. And to top it off, we raised money and clothing for a great organization called “Do Something.”

Sunday’s performance: oh my gosh. It was the world premiere reading for an opera about Harriet Tubman. Those voices. That composing. I’m just saying. But I can’t really articulate it. But wow. Like for serious. Hey Black folks – we might have another opera to audition for! That reminds me: I really want to see “Porgy and Bess” on Broadway…

But seriously, it’s always great to work with people who are great at what they do. On top of that, when the subject matter is as important as the life of Harriet Tubman, you can’t help but be moved. It was a short, but very fun experience. I hope more people get to hear the music someday.

So…today is the national holiday to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I do hope we all take the time to remember what he, and so many others, fought for. I wanted to do something special with my music in order to commemorate this day, so I teamed up with my buddy Marcus the Artyst to do a short tribute to Dr. King. I sing and he plays the saxophone on “We Shall Overcome.” It can be found here on my website:


I hope you enjoy it, and please have a great day!
