It's a new day ;)

It's a new day

Hey!! It’s been a minute. A long one! December…wow!

Please excuse the hiatus…if the truth be known, I wanted to have improved within myself by the next time you heard from me.

For those of you just meeting me, welcome! In a nutshell…

My name is Carlene ‘QueenBrit’ Graham & music is my love, singing is my passion.
I’m from London…live in Spain…& my roots are in Jamaica. I have just released my debut album ‘Vibrations‘ & am now on a mission to tell as many people as I can about it! I’m about to do this, the way that God intended, once & for all! My blog? A platform for expression. Starting with family & friends, & reaching as far as y’all!

For those of you that know me, thank you for your continued support! It’s noticed & greatly appreciated. This last year has been a journey. A positive one. Although sometimes beyond my understanding of the course of events that have taken place over the last 14 months, one thing is clear, I wanna make it. No question.

MUSIC TALENTS

musictalents.biz

So, since my last entry there have been some really memorable times! A combination of family, friends & work. Here’s a brief summary in pics & thoughts…

Natasha Carver in Almeria!

Many years later!...

Many years later!...

My girl Natasha Carver decided to come over & spend some time with my family & I.

She came accompanied with her partner Adam Barker who was also celebrating his Birthday! Boy, I can’t even begin to describe the journey, that is our friendship. But the conclusion that Tash & I always come to, is: “It’s for a reason.” That’s good enough for us!

A few moments from our time together…

It felt the same

Grateful.

And pose!

Bday vibes!

We all spent 5 lovely days together 🙂

Which leads me to this…

Urbanites In Flight

Urbanites In Flight

My boy Orikl is an outstanding artist, & by that, I mean across all levels of art.
I had the pleasure of meeting Orikl in Newark NJ where I was living at the time, & an even greater pleasure of his friendship. The first time I saw him perform, it was a wrap! ‘My Funny Valentine‘ was the song. Moved was the mood. I always loved THIS too!

Orikl has just released ‘Urbanites In Flight‘. In my opinion, it is incredible. Just listen!

Groove...

Groove...

Some words from Orikl…

“In every city of every known place in this world we call home, there are dark places, spaces, people and behaviors that challenge the very thing we call courage on a daily basis. Humanity, as history shows, has always been attracted to revolutions as a way to provoke change, and create awareness, shedding light on that which was once in the dark.

Since the beginning of recorded time humankind has always been split both by those who are ready to make great changes in the world…and those that don’t really understand the importance of needed change in the world.

We, the children of the city, “Urbanites” are the developers of the future of society beyond that of any political sector known to man. We are the dreamers, warriors of “Love Freedom”, Ambassadors of the streets, the “Bioluminescent Glow” in the dark…

We represent every shade of color, every idea, element, and perception of love…”Love Freedom”…

So we congregate , allowing us to harness love energy…to intermix our light with each other, creating a vibrational ray of pure Love energy that can only cast out the darkness of the city, creating an ever-flow of light that can and will re-connect humanity to love itself again throughly…to freedom.

We fly…with no destination…with no measure of time…allowing us to generate a light so bright that we can allow our light to show its “Astronomical Glow”& truly change the world.

Lets fly…”

C IS FOR CURE

C is for Cure

C is for Cure

C is for Cure has been founded by my friend Lolly Maher.

In her own words…

“My son was diagnosed in Sep with stage 4b Lymphoma he has had Chemo and it didnt work he is now spending most of his days in and out of hospital. To be honest he is my hero as he has taken this on the chin and is staying strong even when in the deepest pain during the time. Since he was diagnosed the thing that struck me the most is that there is little or no emotional support for him or my other 3 boys.
There is the fantastic teenage cancer trust but he is too old for their services. They even have a beautiful new ward in the UCH which is a stones throw from us but it is for young people up until the age of 19. Being 21 i know he is officially an adult but to be honest he is still very much a child needing comfort and guidance and needing to believe he can still fulfill his dreams. Any support group we have been to are mostly made up of older people which in itself is not a problem and I’m glad they exist but he doesn’t relate to any of them being a young black man who is educating the doctors on street slang! Lol, yes he is giving them a lot of jokes!

I feel a bit useless in this situation as medically I can do nothing my child’s life is in the hands of strangers so I have felt compelled to do something. So i am in the very early stages of setting up C is for Cure.. I aim to raise funds to a) send my child on a world trip when he gets a break for this horrible treatment and b) raise enough so that other families from low economic back groups can get some practical and emotional support and an opportunity to have a memorable experience once treatment is done, should they find themselves in this enormously stressful situation.
I am also setting up a support group for young adults who have been effected by life changing illness/ disability and their siblings and family and finally i want to raise aware of how easily your life can me turned completely upside down in one day (the importance of loving your family today not tomorrow). I am asking who ever ( and to be honest the more the merrier) to help me to fund raise to make the above possible.

I am sorry if this is a little rambling, I am a little tired as I have spent the best part of the week between the hospital and work.

Thank you for showing concern and taking time out to show support.”

5 MINS 2 SHINE

I am extremely excited to say that today’s feature is: CARLEEN ANDERSON!! 

(The great, late James Brown’s Goddaughter)

Carleen Anderson

Carleen Anderson

1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

I have earned my keep for the past 30 years, as a Singer/Songwriter, with chart topping audio recordings and globally popular live music performances.

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?

Foreseeing the future is beyond my capability, but my goal is to be healthy and happy, however the tide turns. Plans are in the making for the release of another studio album, live album, and a variety of worldwide concerts, plus, I hope to complete a 1 mile swim for the Cancer Research UK charity in 2012 as well.

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

The most memorable time in my life is the day my son was born.

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

If I had the resources, the main change I would go for in this world is to equal the playing field, universally. If we all had the same opportunities, then wars, famine, etc., would decrease considerably. Although conflict is a part of human nature, so is peace and harmony.

5) What do you think of my daily blog?

Very progressive of you to keep this blog with the view of promoting goodwill!

Reminiscing...

Carleen, thank you! You already know what this means to me. Much love to you & your family. You are an inspiration. C xxx

"Mummy's got you..."



So today’s entry falls only two days before my lil man’s THIRD BIRTHDAY & it’s fair to say that I am equally as hyped as he is!! I am seriously excited about his day!! 🙂
Without gushing on, Amari is an extraordinary character that has endured his fair share of challenges already in his short existence to date. Those of you that know, know. For those don’t, you can grasp a good idea from one of my earlier blog entries: Back On The Grind…March 2011 …now re-read it from from HIS perspective. Chokes me up everytime.

Today, he exudes sheer love & his sole purpose in life is to have as much fun as he can!! On a serious note, I can & continue to learn so much from him.

I’m a Rap Artist that does it to my best of my ability.

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?

In 12 months I see myself on TV shows and hearing my music everywhere.

I remember when I was young my father and I use to play Kurtis Blow and Levert driving around the city. It starting me rapping.

If I had the resources I will probably open up a after school center for low income families. That has variety of activities. Keep them out the streets. 

5) What do you think of my blog? (Message for my readers)

I Think QueenBrit is official. Not only is she promoting herself, but she’s promoting upcoming artists. She feels the hunger, making noise from another Side of the world. I love the Blog keep uplifting.

Hey y’all!!
So I guess you can call this entry ‘The LDN Edition’ as I spent the most part of last week back home in LDN…business & a lil pleasure!

As I mentioned in my last entry, I definitely had my reservations about going back to LDN during the week directly following the riots that were in full effect.
It was definitely fair to say that the tension could be felt from boarding the plane, right through to landing & whilst in the Customs Hall at the airport…I think the shock of what had happened/was still happening across the UK was only just beginning to really sink in. Madness..

I learned that when you strip away all the hype…bs…materialistics etc, you’d be surprised just how easy it is to focus on & celebrate the matter at hand for what it really is…ANOTHER YEAR OF LIFE.

I give thanks to my mum, dad & lil man for making it everything that it was.

THROWBACK OF THE DAY

As it’s my Birthday blog!! *cringing*…

Carlene ‘QueenBrit’ Graham is…GLORIA GAYNOR!!

‘5mins 2 Shine’

Today’s feature is: Kodi Me’Chele

Kodi Me Chelle

Kodi Me'Chele


1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

What I do is turn “LIFE” into a comedy show. “LIFE” has the tendency to bring all of us through ups and downs, but instead of crying over spilled milk, why not laugh over how you spilled the milk!
I don’t like to consider myself as a comedian because I don’t tell jokes. I speak of real life situations that everyone can relate to and let everyone see the humorous side to it. “LIFE” laughs at us every day, so why not laugh at “LIFE!”

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?

A year from now, I see myself LIVING, LOVING and ENJOYING! This is a feeling that is not 12 months from now, but every day. If someone can overlook the negativities of the world, than everything else is and always WILL be more than OK!

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

One of the most memorable times in my life was when I saw Whoopi Goldberg on HBO in the 80’s doing stand-up. I had no idea who this woman was and my family had just got cable (well the illegal way…lol) and Whoopi Goldberg was imitating a white valley girl with the towel on her head. After I watched that, I went in the bathroom and did the same thing like she did. I remember my mother saying, “What are you doing?” and I replied, “I am being a WHITE GIRL!” Classic moment of what I knew I was going to be in life. Making the world shine with smiles!

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

One change I would make in the world is for these BAD ASS KIDS to calm the HELL DOWN…lol! When I was growing up, there was no talking back to your elders and OLE SKOOL moms were really OLE SKOOL moms, not 10 years older than the child…lol! PEOPLE LET’S get it TOGETHER!

5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)

Your daily blog brings SUNSHINE to readers who might need some uplifting or a feeling of living for the next day, hour, min and second. If 10,000 people read your blog and only one person found some uplifting to be motivated to change and achieve what is necessary in that person’s life, than that is beyond changing the world!

Kodi’s song selection of the day is:

‘That’s The Way Of The World’ – Earth Wind & Fire

I so proud to announce that today’s feature is: DONELL JONES!!!

Donell Jones

Donell Jones

1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

I’m a singer, songwriter, producer. I think I do it pretty well. I have a great fan base that’s supported me through the years. I’ve continued to keep my music the same and people have accepted that. If you ask me, I think I’m one of the best that’s out there right now, that’s consistent.

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12months from today?

12 months from today I definitely see myself rockin a show somewhere. If it’s awards time, I definitely see myself there. Just busy.

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

The most memorable time in my life is when I won the American Music Award. I had no clue that I was going to win it. I was up against Pink and Mary Mary and I just knew I was going to lose. When they called my name I had no speech, no nothing prepared because I thought I was going to lose so I lost it literally when I won. (laughs)

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

It would have to be starvation. It would have to be that. I believe there’s enough food in the world to feed everybody and if I had the resources I would definitely make sure no woman, child or person went hungry.

5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)

I think your blog is great! A good place to find valuable information and get to know people that you may not have otherwise known before, such as artists, musicians and so-forth. Keep up the good work and thanks for having me!

Happy Monday!!

Wow…this has officially been the busiest week in a long time. Had meetings, studio, & catch ups galore. God is amazing cos I’ve prayed on this daily since I returned to NJ in January, telling God I would make the most out of life given the chance…He has cerainly done that! Praise the Lord!!

Today, I’m hanging with Rizzzzzzzzz, the coolest cat in town…& this boy can SANG!! Go say hello y’all!!

Jamar

1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

I sing and I think I do it pretty damn well (not cockiness here, my cherie, just confidence.)

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12months from today?

I’ll be flying high after my Best New Artist Win. Also, I’ll have FINALLY sang a duet with Carlene (fingers crossed!).

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

The birth of my little girl. There’s something about literally holding your past and future in your hands and realizing that this life thing isn’t about you after all.

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

I wish I could slap a few celebrities around and let them know that we have perfect, beautiful American children that need to be adopted. I’ve noticed that it’s very in style to go pick up a kid from another country like you’re shopping for the perfect handbag. All I’m saying is: why go overseas when we have TONS of children right here underneath our noses.

Carlene

5mins 2 Shine

The 2nd feature of today is:

GATA PANTERA NEGRRA

Gata

Gata

1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

Great question. I’m an alternative Hip Hop artist, with forays into acting, alternative plus-size modelling, and writing. I also make cyberlox and synthlox wigs and hairpieces. I think I’m pretty good at what I do…to wear all these hats I better be good!

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12months from today

God/dess willing, I’ll be a well-known name on the indie circuit, selling loads of CD’s and seeing my video everywhere. You won’t be able to move three inches without seeing something somewhere about ThaGataNegrra!

3)What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

The easy answer would be when I gave birth–but I’ve done that twice, LOL…so I’ll share this: I used to be a dance instructor and at the same time, I attended dance school for hours on end everyday. I would teach in the afternoons and go to school in the evenings, except for Saturday. I loved that time; I got to do something I loved all the time and it never felt like work…well, except when it was time for ballet. I hated ballet because my body just wasn’t suited to it, LOL. I was a hip-hop/jazz dancer!

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

I would ensure that everyone everywhere was afforded the same freedom that we are allowed here in the States. Too many people suffer needlessly for traditions and barbaric practises they would not have to endure if they could just make a choice.

Gata

Gata

5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)

I love what I’ve read so far. The blog is entertaining and informative and I’m glad it’s out there. Read it–you’ll love it, too!

Up up & away! So today…Wednesday…I’m flying home to LDN! How hyped am I? Extremely!!!

I will be there until Wednesday 14th.

Husby & I decided that it wasn’t gonna be feasible for lil man to come with me on this one…gonna be zooming around like crazy when I get there, babysitters & all that ish. So unfortunately, he’ll be staying US bound. This is gonna be my first week away from him…missing him already!!

Most importantly…I’ve had requests for tracks / drops / & 1, yes, just 1 interview! If you wanna hook up on a work flex, email me @: carlenegrahaminfo@gmail.com

LETS GO!!!

Last nite…

Had SO much fun!

My-boyz

My-boyz

It was my stepson Delisle’s 5th Birthday get together (as I mentioned yesterday) & I actually had a great night! We went out for a meal & then back to his mother’s house for some cake & a beer…gotta love it!
To tell you the truth, it was the first time that we had hung out as a family & by that I mean mother / father / stepmother / stepfather / Delisle / Amari. It was long overdue, necessary & not at all that bad!! We had fun!

Big ups to Janaina & Martell (hope it’s spelt right!) for having us…when I get back, y’ll come over to us for a meal & all that good stuff 🙂

Throwback of the day

These are getting easier by the day!

‘Whatta Man’ – Salt ‘N’ Pepa ft En Vogue

After yesterday’s emotional roller coaster…this is my final verdict!!

5mins 2 Shine

Today’s feature is:

DANIEL THOMAS

Daniel

Daniel

1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

Well……I wear a number of hats on different days lol! I’m different things to different people – to some, I’m a Vocal Coach and Choir Director (with a few master classes thrown in). To some, I’m a Keyboardist, Songwriter and Producer, to others I’m a Singer/ back ground Vocalist / Artist / front man with different bands.

I would like to think I do all these things very well – as I still get the call back!! LOL! My CV reads like a book, so I guess I must be doing something right.  Overall, to my mother, I’m just plain Daniel Thomas – her last born baby!

2) Where do you forsee yourself 12months from today?

I’m working on a number of projects for commercial release by the end of this year (that’s the plan – no pressure!).

At the same time (in my limited spare time) I’m working on a collection of poems, and an ongoing pet-project, a book which is semi-autobiographical. If I could wrap these writings by this time next year, I would be well chuffed!

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

There are a number of memorable moments in my life – some very good and some very bad. But I’ll keep this interview light! Musically, in the top ten would be meeting and working with the late great Luther Vandross and James Brown (separate times of course!). Also, singing the South African national anthem for Mr Nelson Mandela. I actually cried! Also, hitting the UK national charts with a cover of the Bee Gees ‘You Should Be Dancing’ – number 3!!!

Great times.

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

That’s a very big question – but right now, I would be totally selfless and totally rebuild Haiti for my brothers and sisters out there.

In these turbulent economic times – I would also find a way to bring a smile to everyone every day. Those who know me, know I love to laugh and to make others laugh. And I’m talking about the big throw-yo’-head-back-hold-yo’-belly-tears-rolling-cackling kind of laugh! Its really good for the soul and makes life bearable.

5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)

EVERYONE should make this blog part of their daily read! Carlene is my girl from UK, one of the most brilliant peeps I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with! From the moment we met on a gig – there was an instant connection. I get her and she got me – like we knew each other from waaaaaay back! LOL! Big love to all the readers – HOT SAUCE! D Thomas 🙂

Daniel Thomas’ throwback of the day is: All I Need’ – Thomas Whitfield & Company

Daniel said: “This man inspired me to do music!”

Here is Daniel’s most recent single ‘Higher High’ from last year!

‘Higher High’ – Ralf GUM ft Daniel Thomas

Anyone that knows me well, KNOWS that this track right here is ME! Pre club…drinks flowing…putting on mascara…love it!!

Here is Daniel going back to his roots…choir directing.

‘Faith’ – LCGC

And I do believe that that’s my homegirl Annette absolutely rippin’ the lead vox on this, if I’m not mistaken.

You can reach out to Daniel @:
Facebook

I just wanna say that I loooooooove you Dan! Man you are a ray of sunshine every damn day…how do you do it???
You are an inspiration to me personally, because you are one of the few people I know that is 100% committed to his faith but still dares to be different…I respect that Daniel.

To my readers: If singing is something you have always wanted to do but you’ve never taken that first step…this is the man you need to talk to (if you can pin him down long enough to talk!)

Can’t wait to see you Dan…let’s go grace LDN town with our presence…lol

BECAAAAAAAAAAAH!! Ha ha ha xx

Y’all Stay Blessed,

I Wonder’ – Luther Vandross

SO many memories 🙂 This song brings me joy & makes me skin teet hard!!

RIP Luther – you were truly an elite performer. Thank you for keeping my musical company.

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?
