As the holiday's draw near, a season of gift giving begins to build it's presence. The kids bundled up, lay restless in bed with thoughts of their presents. The Christmas lists are underway, of all the toys and things kids need to learn and play. In our blessings we take comfort, with love and warmth we hold close to our covers. Yet still we remember, of the children made of wish's, in their young hearts so tender. Reminded of the children who sadly go without. And of the children spending their holidays fighting illness in hospital gowns. So, each year we we gather our wits and we muster our might, hatching our plan to save yet another Christmas Night.
I have known Mike B for over a couple years now and I have witnessed his hard work, dedication and follow through first hand. From the turntables to being present in the scene supporting his comrades, not to mention volunteering his time and services for community causes. Always remaining humble and positive as he grinds his way up in the scene, regardless of his accomplishments. When I found about his new brain child, Lyricist lounge, I was curious to find out what inspired him. When we spoke on the upcoming event, he was happy to share his vision and motivation with me.
I have been blessed to be a part of ArtLoveMagic since the early stages. Beyond what I have learned from the dedicated, self-sacrificing and exceptionally talented people that make this organization a reality, I have also been able to volunteer, perform and participate in the production end of some amazing events. Developing great relationships along the way I have watched an empowering journey of powerful growth, expanding reach and positive community impact. Movements like this are by no means a dime a dozen. I consider it a pleasure, blessing and gratifying opportunity to be a part of this organization and what it represents. They have been an inspirational energy for my own growth, both, artistically and in my personal evolution. The energy cultivated and shared by the ArtLoveMagic community is a positive force well worth support, encouragement and contribution.
