It’s my birthday, Yeah Yeah! It’s my birthday! January 27!! For those who wonder what my age is, I’ll help you out just by saying I am close to knocking on the 40’s door. I can hear you say “But you don’t look it” I I don’t ‘cos my mom doesn’t look it 🙂 Thanks mom for the genes.. lol and above all, thank God for his Grace, Mercy and Favor all through the years. Without Him, I won’t be where I am today.
So I decided that I was gonna do a promotional pictorial 7 day birthday countdown (on my social media platforms), a countdown also to the release of a new acoustic song featuring Oriri titled ‘This Smile‘ recorded at Sound Resort Studios, Atlanta. This SMilE ~ is a song about my famed smile that inspires others to smile because “it’s free therapy” 🙂 And in so doing, also announce a mini launch of my NGO – Adopt A Guitar, Inc. that will be putting smiles on the faces of young talents.
‘Adopt A Guitar’ is partnering with ‘Playing For Change’ for a 2014 drive to donate acoustic guitars to talented underprivileged youth/students in African countries. The vision is “14 Guitars” 2014 Drive. Starting small with 14 Guitars for 14 deserving talents. The 2 selected schools are : Bizung School of Music & Dance in Tamale, Ghana & Ntonga Music School in Gugulethu, South Africa
And here is presenting, my very organic, simple, acoustic, unplugged music offering ‘This Smile’ (from my 2014 musical work in progress tagged #OrganicallySinging) Click here –> http://www.noisetrade.com/tosinger/this-smile to download and kindly leave a tip to support ‘Adopt A Guitar’ . It’s all about talent, heart, music, development, putting a smile on the face of another, by giving guitars to very talented youth who cannot afford it otherwise . I have partnered with ‘Playing For Change’ to give out 14 acoustic guitars this year. I call it the ’14 Guitars 2014 Drive‘ . Dreams can surely come true! This is my birthday wish. Thank you all in advance for your support.
