Black #Culture ..’ – #In14Ways #AnthonyEverestMusic #MercyfulGrace

Culture isn’t set in stone. Otherwise we’d still be riding donkeys to Jerusalem like Jesus & nailing sinners to the cross ..’

The same way some black rappers are degrading their black women calling them ‘Bitches’, on their recordings and wearing denim hanging below their crotch and bum cheeks, procreating about like waste dad’s, leaving their baby mamas as single mothers to raise their offspring alone.

Is that culture or black enough for you?

But then again there is ‘Rupaul’, a black man, ‘Empowering Women’ and giving them notes & a voice through celebration and entertainment.

Creating a multi million pound industry for those rejected kids, fathered by those very waste dad’s and sorts, to have a livelihood as designers, make-up artistes, stylists, videographers, media gurus, models, thespians, musicians and sorts but you don’t talk about that.

And they aren’t the only ones. I never made my International Woman’s Day charity work about the #Lgbtq+ but if you ignorantly push me your bougie behind will be shoved.

The problem with some of you is that, you assume (woke) black men, don’t know, (can’t consume) the difference, between art, fantasy, entertainment & #reality ..’

Our ancestors always comunicate with us. Me through dreams. I was given some information on #IkereEkiti, today in a dream. I will fact check. . . I also believe I channel the #spirits of our fore fathers and fore mothers physically. Through, #FASHION, #music and #arts ..' . . After all, we are #spiritual #beings having a human experience. It's sad we don't know ourselves well enough. Those who do, exploit, loot and #monetise us till today. I see some Europeans pillaging our ancestry, culturally, but when I create the same works or sentiments, some #Africans, try to raise their eye brows and flare their nostrils. Really sad !!! . . No wonder why some people misunderstand #Kanye when he says 'I Am'. We are !!!! We are the guardian's and protectors of the land. The first. It's written in our #melanin and carbonated in our #DNA. We are the original #creators of this plane and source to everything seen and unseen. The likes came after our kind and created systems off it's back to exclude our kind by appropriation, from classical #music, to drag queens, egyptian #pyramid technologies to sky scrappers and pharmacy to alchemy ..' . . We need to let go of #selfhate & miss #education from #disinformation. One #love. Now that it's clear, I won't let anyone lower my vibrations #anymore. #IAm ..' – #In14Ways #AnthonyEverestMusic

Are you #wasted ..’ – #In14Ways – #AnthonyEverestMusic

Are you wasted ..’ – #In14Ways

From the album #KissMeBaby. A #song I wrote. So true.

#AnthonyEverestMusic

God First.

To the eye naked; all is, unlike the one’s covered with the #truth. Just because it’s successful does not mean it’s #credible ..’ – #In14Ways

CREATIVE FREEDOM (MUSIC Licence) ..’

I stay close to my roots while I inspire generations; old and new for a great reason.

Nobody, has the right to lecture people what they can sing, or not, genre-wise, at an open mic. Especially, when it’s a promotional service paid for ..’ Really, why are some people so wrong and border line ignorant?

MUSIC is a universal language. Nobody owns MUSIC. MUSIC is a gift from God (Love).

As a writer, arranger and a composer of original works and/or, adaption of such or similar; works, polish your brain next time, before you come for me.

My work speaks for itself. I give others room to shine their own light, not dim, theirs.

Such heresy, is antiquated and full of where the sun don’t shine. Like I said, earlier on my timeline, yesterday; just because it’s successful does not mean it’s credible.

I’m utterly over dim wited opinionated inauththentic, creatives; selfrighteously throwing childish egoes. That self serving, ‘heresy’ has no place in any, love truthing #community ..’

Stay amazing. I hope you a vibrating #right. It’s a new day and there is love in #abundance..’ – #In14Ways

My Testimony – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace


Why I thought I didn’t have wisdom:

An aunt made me feel stupid and I was always treated that way for a while. She told me one day out of annoyance while she was nursing her first child; to ask God for wisdom.
Why I thought I did not have a good singing voice:

I was always treated as different and an outsider growing up at home & within my extended family.

Never felt accepted. I was always compared with my cousins as the status quo and told I wasn’t good enough.

Music moved me unlike any thing and gave me, clarity, hope, rest, peace, a santuary and an identity.

I loved listening to Amy Grant & Maranatha as a child. Later Helen Baylor & Whitney Houston.
Then Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli when I came to England.

Helen Baylor was a defining moment when my cousin gave me her tape – Highly Recommended.

I was transfixed. I told God I want to sing like that when I grow up. It was done and sealed. I also told him I will edify him with my voice. Then I forgot and it nearly went completely wrong for me.
I was 19 then.

My school mother gave me Gospel Songs of Any Grant & Maranatha to learn.

They grew on me. I wanted to sing like these kids on the recordings and wished I was in their company away from my reality. So I sang more.

When I heard the soprano lines; I was facsinated by their wall of sounds.

How I prayed about this and exactly:

So, I asked God to give me a very beautiful voice and make my range wider and higher than all the soprano singers in my youth choir, or that I’ve heard and all the boys singing tennor. And I, got it.
I was removed from tennor to sing soprano in my church youth choir.
I always associated my voice / music as a gift from God and a prayer. It’s spiritual and sacred for me.

How that was answered?

When I started singing very high and making songs up all the time. Also, given Soprano lines to sing and got signed up at 21.

My music is powerful. It heals. I heard testimonies from mothers who say their sons listen to my album ‘Follow Your Dreams’ – songs I wrote and recorded; every night before bed. Especially an autistic boy.

My music topped Jazz charts and got awards internationally with high praises from colleagues and rave reviews.

It got me a lot of frenemies, saboteurs and haters too. It came with the package. It was hard to process at first. Now I’m good.
Nobody hates on a looser. They only do when you are slaying.

How did God give you wisdom:

I started having a sixth sense, revelations, gift of dreams and became very concious; very young.
Then God revealed himself to me and spoke to me about my destiny and purpose to edify him and how he would use me later on as an adult.

Especially as a great writer – the Award winning (MercyfulGrace Blog). Not so much as a great singer; cuz I broke my oath. He did still promise me a very good singing career. I then remembered my oath to him. Our oath. The pact we made.

Every time the world was offered to me; He would tell me to say no.

The first time I disobeyed; I tore my larynx and lost my beautiful voice for almost a decade and could not sing. Then lost my record deal(s).

I went down a depression spiral and became narcoleptic. God is real. Very, very real.

Do I now sing more?

Yes – Everyday. Holistically, professionally and creatively #AnthonyEverestMusic
I am singing at the Hilton this weekend and the Marriott next month.
Thanks

#Blues is the #mother of #jazz – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace #Music

Blues is the mother of jazz. From Free Jazz to Swing. No one can tell me how to sing blues. My ancestors owned that sh*t. Appropriate it all you like.

Ignorants blaming singers singing off. What about the other musicians playing out of tune. Not playing in the singers key?

Here is a great read for those who still don’t compute what I’m saying.

Especially Europeans who think they invented jazz or those who like to disrespect gospel music in jazz progressively; a poignant benchmark in jazz, historically, from blues, without which – you have nothing ..’ –

Some Europeans carrying on about jazz make me laugh when they act as if it’s their legacy and not black origin music. That’s a blues for you to note.
