I love those Kicks! Un poquito about the founder of TOMS: Blake Mycoskie

Blake Mycoskie

Who woulda THUNK that you could “actually” learn mentally stimulating and insightful information on the E network!!? Lol. I have to be honest, I’m guilty of having a slight infatuation with the networks fashion content and coverage.

As I was watching the segment of E News washing dishes, up came the founder of TOMS. Blake Mycoskie! I abruptly stopped what I was doing and listened carefully about his story of how the TOMS movement all started.

Blake talks about going to Argentina and learning that most of the kids in the poor villages are not able to attend school simply due to the fact that the kids could not afford shoes. He wanted to originate a plan to provide these kids with a pair of shoes, but didn’t want to start a charity, rather a business that coexists with a charitable mindset. Pretty sweet, I guess? ;B

I just think the concept is cool and shows the man has somewhat of a heart? I first just loved the comfiness and look, so the basis for the creation was just an add-on. So go get some TOMS! By the way, his name is not TOM he chose the name because he thought it represented “take a step toward a better tomorrow”. He obviously couldn’t fit the word Tomorrow on the back so he just put TOMS! Ta DA!

I have RED Toms! Cantcha tell! ;D

Interview and live performance of “Quiero” at RNE studios in Madrid, Spain

Had so much fun!! Dreams are definitely coming true and I’m very blessed…

I had the privilege to do a Berklee Songwriters Tour in Spain this summer along with my redonkulous peers Guillermo Marin and Emily Elbert. I can not tell you how humbling it was to have to perform on the same platform with these two musical geniuses! Their musical abilities far exceed mine and I have to say, they inspire me and without a shadow of a doubt, I learned so much from them!

We were all interviewed by the great Pilar Tabares. She is basically the equivalence somewhat of a “Simon Cowell” from the American Idol in Spain. It seriously was so cool to be in such a great place with such amazing people. I feel so blessed and can’t wait to go back for round 2!

Hope ya’ll enjoy!

The work I’ve recently done with Toby Love & Kairos

September 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Hey guys! I just thought it would be kinda nice to share the recent work I’ve done so you can keep an eye out and support these amazing beautiful artist! I always let you all know whats up so you all can get a more well rounded taste of my craft as a whole!

I had the marvelous opportunity to work with Urban Latin singer (ex member of the bachata group Aventura) Toby Love on his previous projects but also had the privilege of working on his new album “La Voz de la Juventud”. One of the main tracks to listen out for is Toby and Yuridia’s duet “Quizas”. I arranged and recorded all of the background vocals!

*Another to listen out for where you’ll find PIT BULL on the track! I also had the fun of being the weather girl on the “Llorar Lloviendo” album.

To listen to “Quizas” take a listen here! 

You can also buy it on Itunes!

I also, had the amazing opportunity to work with my very awesome and beautiful good friends that form the duo “Kairos”. The duo is comprised of JP Cardona and Jennifer Rodriguez. They heard a worship song I had written and produced a few years back titled “Verdad” and we spoke about possibly presenting it on their future project! Who woulda thunk!

You can hear my arrangement of background vocals on their latest album “Corro a Ti”. I feel like a proud Mama (even though we’re the same age LOL!) ! Jennifer’s voice suits it so beautifully and she definitely makes the song her own.

You can listen to the song on their latest album on Itunes! Their website is http://www.KairosMusik.com

Much Love

This Sveedish (Swedish) girl named Robyn

Ok, so I’ve been a fan of Robyn since way back in the day, like 2000. When she had that song out. “show me love” crazy huh!? Thats her!

Well, I wanna share the fact that her music is dopealicious. Dope. Walking in the subways and killing myself at the gym is just so much cooler with this seeping through my ear wax (sorry to be so gross, deal with it. lol) But, so Yeah. Her music is the future like Black Eye Peas. Love it.
