An Important Fact: Men Mattered, Men Still Matter and Men Will Continue to Matter Posted on June 4, 2013 | Leave a comment
It is sad to listen to conversations women have with each other on trains, buses and even in after meetings in boardrooms. It seems that men, maleness, and fatherhood have been under siege in American culture for decades. Sadly the feminist movement somehow veered off course from its original aim of helping women achieve equality and ended up making enemies of men. I am a woman, but the fact is that I have noticed the practice of male bashing and husband bashing and it is like a cancer that is happening even in places where you would expect that people would uphold each other. I heard a writer say that men are great! I wholeheartedly agree.
Empower your man by encouraging him to do better, don’t show off if you earn more money than he does, or have a higher education than he does. Help others to see men as your most valuable asset and your greatest form of protection. If you are a female boss, don’t let feminist prejudices cloud your judgement. You can hire great men who can be equally as loyal if not more loyal to you, at times, than some women.
If you are a wife don’t reduce your husband’s standing publicly with demeaning public arguments that embarrass him. If you wish to get the same treatment in return and be treated badly, then knock yourself out and continue your pattern of reckless endangerment to your relationships with men or the man in your life. To women who feel that because they have achieved success, are empowered and feel they no longer need male moral support, I say think again!!! History shows that it has also been because of great men who have noticed that women deserve to be treated fairly in the workplace, men who also walked alongside of women during the civil rights movements (yes there were great men who fought for women’s rights – Men’s League for Women’s Suffrage was a society formed in 1907 by the left-wing writers Henry Brailsford, Max Eastman, Laurence Housman, Henry Nevinson and others to pursue women’s suffrage) and other men who have paved the way for the development of women’s rights, that women have actually become more empowered in our society.

You're going to enjoy this heartwarming interview with US Navy Hero and now Musician Don Flanagan. It's a must hear! http://www.blogtalkradio.com/newyorkpodcastingcafe/2013/05/23/a-navy-hero-and-his-music
We have a full day's work cut out tomorrow. Assisting my husband tomorrow (who is Coordinator of the Music Master's program) in Forest Hills, NY and working on getting the stringed trio (violins/cello) arrangement done for the song "The Prayer," which will be recorded at a New York recording studio. My music review with GMA in Nashville, Tennessee has been reschedule for 2014 due to an important personal matter. The review of my music performance will happen next year, as the welcome is still open and I am still here, but I am so happy because not having been able to make the GMA conference means that I get to spend the Memorial Day weekend with some of my Family, a little later in the day tomorrow. I cannot wait to hang with my clan...my blood... my family!
So glad to share that Baby Elizabeth who has been battling Leukemia finally had the strength to stand up and take her first baby steps. I wish to thank all of the amazing musicians who are dropping by her page to show their support and leave their loving prayers and kind words to Baby Elizabeth and her parents. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! Baby Elizabeth continues to battle on and I pray that those reading this will pay her a visit at http://www.facebook.com/LoveforPrincessElizabeth and tell them Carmen sent you! God bless and thanks again!
I don't like the word "fan". I dislike using the word or being referred to as one, because I consider myself an artist (and I have a few thousand fans on my Reverb Nation, FB and Twitter pages), as I write and create music, but when I hear another artist say they don't deal with folks at a certain level because "They are JUST fans," they lose my support forever, no matter how great they think they are as artists, because frankly, artist or not, I am a fan of people too and fan's buy the music and spread the word.
People who listen to your music are the reason why you make the music in the first place. You don't spend thousands of dollars creating music so that you can sing to empty walls. You need people to hear your music, like it and buy it, so if you don't honor the fact that they buy your music and that it is the fan's word of mouth that also interests others in hear and purchasing your music, you lose big time.
Artists need to be nice to those who listen to their music and spread the word about their art, ALL OF THE TIME. Whether you are fatigued from traveling a lot and playing at different places, feeling that you have license to let out your frustration at someone can be devastating to your music career. It can be something as offensive as physical retaliation on your part toward a fan or anyone, or as simple as a stupid remark. You don't call a fan "Just a fan!!!!" It is rude to use those words when you refer to fans in any conversation with anyone!!!
One careless word to someone can do great damage to someone who has loved and followed your career. In the age of cyber communications, words, photos and bad news spread around the globe like wildfire and that's just as quickly as great news about your music does.
Fans are the ones who take you where you need to go and keep you exactly where it is that you are. Be very careful not to destroy your career by being insensitive to even 'ONE' fan. Nobody will want to manage you and that's because when word gets around, nobody will want to book you.
You stand to lose GREATLY when you take the most important people in your career for granted and there's a penalty for how badly we treat others in music. Your reputation gets around, which means you have to work harder to undo the damage you have done to try and win back public confidence. So why work hard when you can work smart. Just as the great news of your wonderful music got around fast, so does the bad news of how badly you treated someone get around fast also.
Your music maybe the new flavor of the month and so are you, but you need to remember who has placed you where you are. First God's will and then those who listen and are blessed by your music. So keep it clean, be thankful to Him and to the listeners and honor them in all that you do.
The same applies for how we speak with people we think we don't know over the telephone in customer service. My husband and I executive produced a show in New York and elected a well known ticketing service in New York to do ticket sales. I called their hotline one day and asked a policy question about the show that we were doing pertaining to ticket purchases, because someone I knew complained about having problems with the service. I did not say who I was, but I soon realized that my concert goer was right. The agent I spoke to was very crass and had a very unfriendly, condescending tone on her voice.
With an angry tone, she asked me a question because she was not clear on the guidelines. I finally said, "I am the producer of the production that I am asking the ticket sales policies about," she quickly changed her tone and became nice and friendly. So you see no matter what side of music or entertainment one is on, one must always be mindful to observe friendly, courteous and supportive behavior.

Adolfo Carrion Jr. was a friend with whom we participated in summer camps as kids. His dad was the upstanding Superintendent of the Assemblies of God council in NYC. I was exceedingly joyful when he made it to the White House Cabinet and now he is running for New York Mayor. Please share the link with everyone you know on all of your networks! He has my vote HANDS DOWN! Thanks Lizette Carrion for sharing this. I was so happy to see you at the "Melodies of Spring Concert" in New York April 14, 2013!!! You ROCK! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DomjZOEGWmo
Dear Friends and Fans, Thank you for continuing to show your loving support for Baby E, who battles Leukemia. Please continue to share her link with others, to leave a word or contribution at https://www.Facebook.com/LoveforPrincessElizabeth.
The Melodies of Spring Concert on April 14, 2013, was a great success!!! People laughed, they cried and they were touched by all of the performers. Soprano Marla Kavanaugh Rodriguez brought people to their news with some amazing opera tunes, but the Ave Maria brought a few to their knees. Tenor Sergio Marin knocked it out of the ballpark with "Panis Angelicus" and in our duet the song "The Prayer." These two got great reviews which will be available at the http://www.MelodiesofNYC.com page!
