The Groove For The Cure

Take one of reggae's foundation riddims, add a stellar selection of international talent, and livicate it all to a great cause: that's the formula for Love I Can Feel–A Groove For The Cure. Spearheaded and produced by the 8 piece roots-based collective Contra Coup, this collection benefits the Love Hope Strength Foundation, an international, music-centric cancer charity dedicated to providing support for cancer centers, and inspiration to those affected, throughout the world. Contra Coup kicks it off with their version of John Holt’s lover's rock classic, followed by reggae legend (and cancer survivor) Clinton Fearon with Start All Over. Canada's Chris Murray Combo brings a Little Bit of Love and California's Zema shows why she is one of today's outstanding female talents with Think About It. After a refreshing dub excursion from Austin's McPullish, it's the up and coming Mr. T-Bone, well representing Italy with Stop Crying Baby. Doreen Shaffer's Dear Conscience is next up. As an original member of the Skatalites for more than four decades, her place in reggae history is secure. From the Studio One days of the 70s to his mega-hits with Michigan in the 80s, General Smiley is always the dancehall don, and My Miracle is no exception. Representing mother Africa, Cameroon native Kimaany reminds us to Give. And Dub Fanatic (one of the many pseudonyms of producer and musician Johnny Horn) wraps things up Malawi Style. Love I Can Feel-A Groove For the Cure is a one riddim collection that moves from strength to strength and never lets up. One reason why: the cause is personal. Almost every artist on this CD has been touched in some way by the scourge of cancer. Here are two of their stories: From Zema: "My mother was being treated for cancer at the Issels Cancer Clinic in Germany when Bob Marley was there. She knew I was a big fan of Bob's and told him she had a daughter that was a musician and his fan. When I went to visit her, I had the chance to talk to Bob and I was at his last birthday party. Meeting Bob Marley and being around that whole environment set me on a journey away from playing rock music and delving into reggae. I haven't looked back since. There are things that the enemy means for evil but the Almighty can bring good out of them." From Mr. T-Bone: "Cancer stole my father from me in 1991 when I was just a kid, this was the saddest period of my life. Cancer is the pestilence of this century and we have to fight against it in all the ways we can. A song unfortunately can't beat cancer, but it can make your sad moment a little less sad, and show you a small ray of light in the sky that can give you some hope and make you feel better. That's how it worked for me. One Love.” For much more information on the Love Hope Strength Foundation and the artists on this CD, please see the following websites: http://www.lovehopestrength.org http://www.mossburgmusic.com Song List 1.

GOD

The Deity worshiped by the "religious" communities as the creator and ruler of the universe or a being or object believed to have supernatural attributes and powers enough to require worship, a person or thing of supreme value. so actually the word "God" is not a name it's a title given onto a "Deity" the word deity means god or goddess............

Gullibility

I know helping people to help themselves is helping me to help myself grow but it is hard to grow among ignorance,it is hard to grow among stagnation,it is hard to grow among fear but worst of all it is very hard to grow among the heights of gullibility in our society today.
