I’m waking up into a brand new reality and its freeing me out by the hour, seconding me; into a brand new wisdom, by the minute ..’
Well. Covet racism aside and institutional bias which has me wondering if any ethic minority is still dumb enough to be used to hate on his or her kind in 2017 could still plausibly exist. I stay un-alarmed.
However, working with some Africans tediously drives me up the wall ..’ I need to pray for inner strength. When professionals say yes in business; more than often it’s, always on the money. What’s with us?
Stop acting stush. If you need help, ask. Its hard not to lament at the same old story ..’
Reputation is everything in business. Don’t loose it. If you don’t have any, don’t engage others in business, who do.
It’s painfully challenging but must be highlighted and underlined.
Don’t let other’s trivialise your dreams with their negative talk and lack of faith. Consecrate your dreams and plans to the great one.
So blessed the enemy is jealous and trying every trickery !!! The crown upon me is king and blessed way down before time. I decree life, in the name of Jesus, over my resurrection, over life after life, cuz I am so blessed, to know this, and confess it.
Just picked up this story. In the light of my outrage towards homophobic African leaders, it’s clear that the fuss is a mare distraction; from real issues, that affect livelihoods, socially and economically – like this tragedy ..’ Murderers no less.
Children’s going to school just to get education using this wooden bridge as a passage and unfortunately the bridge fell down with them which cause them to loose their lives. R.I.P to them. Shame for African leaders to see.
Greed and political corruption leads to these tragedies ..’
While these barbaric politicians have mansions and swiss accounts abroad they cant build a simple footpath !!!
Evil !!!! Yet they have a lot to say to hypocritically crucify the lgbt communities in Africa. This is murder its self. In African poor communities they don’t have alternatives as such to get to school.
This was supposed to be their route out of poverty not to their untimely deaths. You murdered them with your insatiable corruption and remorseless ignorance.
“She’s not just good. She’s phenomenal. Carleen Anderson is one of a kind” – James Brown
Let’s get to know Carleen Anderson, better. Thanks for agreeing to this interview. We usually do this in 14 ways, but for blessed burdens, like you; we reserve exceptions ..’
“For live performances, you have to see Carleen Anderson, at least 3 times, in your life. She’s someone, I’d hang around all day, just to hear, her sound check ..” – Amy Winehouse
Sweet, but only where heaven is falling. I don’t call those bitter, anymore. I’m a love child, to love, from love. God favours me. That’s Carleen ..’ – Anthony Everest
You are a great work of art and truly inspirational. It’s an honour and a mare privilege, to touch the peripherals of a great mind that’s seen a lot of life, in various lights, to a great degree. God bless you ..’
I remember interviewing Carleen, when I produced and presented for Voice of Africa Radio, half a decade ago. Then, inviting me to see her play, ‘live’ at Ronnies, in London ..’
Couldn’t get over her songs and her endearing powerful wise way of allaying thoughts on paper, creatively, with a succinct colourful pedigree of words, unrestrainedly.
Set to a backdrop of propelled vocals, centred on beautiful ivories; running through her fingers, gracefully yet fearlessly, to a spellbound, mixed audience.
1. Who Is Carleen Anderson
The mother to her Sun Bobby Anderson being the most significant element of her earthly existence alongside the blessings of nurture by her paternal Grandparents since her infancy, Carleen Anderson is more widely known as an independent vocalist/composer whose solo albums and celebrity collaborations are globally acknowledged as relevant Soul Music.
She is further known because of her work with the group, The Young Disciples. Her family association with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, via her stepfather Bobby Byrd and her birth mother, Vicki Anderson, is often mentioned in connection to her music career.
2. What is fortune drive
Fortune Drive is a metaphor referring to my life in contrast to being raised on Cage Street by my Grandparents.
3. What is failure
What would be considered failure to me is to be without any association of love in my heart during my time on earth.
4. Why success
Success to my mind is the ability to have room in my heart for love even when the heartaches of life seem overwhelming, as having time and space for love brings uplift to any situation.
5. Where did leopards in the temple come from? Epic song.
The title ‘Leopards in the Temple’ was drawn from a poem written by Franz Kafka whom I read during my University creative writing studies. Decades after first reading Kafka, circumstances of life resulted in me translating the theme of betrayal in his poem into a song that I wrote about the same topic.
6. Favourite song on the new album
Every song on my new album, “CAGE STREET MEMORIAL~ The Pilgrimage”, is dear to me and favoured equally.
7. What’s your fav duet experience
The blessings of musical collaborations throughout my career all have graced me with favour but the most dearest is the impromptu LIVE performance with my Godfather, James Brown at the Royal Albert Hall in London, 2003, which was captured on my LIVE DIVD, Grace and Favours.
8. Most terrifying moment
To speak of terror except in incidents where justice demands it is to give fear power without any benefits of purpose to self-preservation.
9. Who inspires you most
The inspiration that visits me the most is from loved ones long since transitioned who encourage my spiritual journey.
10. What’s love to you
What I consider love to be is sincerity in moral support and active carefulness.
11. Your A list crush
The last time I had a celebrity crush was when I was a teenager. It was for the 1970s actor, Billy Dee Williams. Such idol fantasies have since been long gone.
12. Fav destination
In an ideal world, I’d love to spend time in the Seychelles. From what I’ve read about it, the place seems peaceful.
14. Your worst critic
Of all the critics that have professionally put me down, their worst pales in comparison to that which I experienced personally at a very early age from someone who for this interview shall remain nameless.
The launch of Carleen Anderson’s new album is scheduled for its showcase by the EFG London Jazz Festival at the newly refurbished Jazz Cafe on 18th and 19th November alongside its FREESTYLE RECORDS distribution release in November 2016.

By Aremuorin What’s your view? Share this with someone. Dont wait. Pass it on ..’
So glad a creative from Hollywood has a mind of love like Shrondrella. The glory of self righteous men is never the full glory of God. Smash this week and weekend with smiles – even, in the face of adversity ..’ Don’t let the enemy win, nor in !!! Boom! Have a super duper – funtastic one ..’ – Aremuorin
Food for thought!
“The THINGS that we worry about are things that we don’t fully surrender to God, money, Relationships etc. But IF we have “Faith,” to pray for the things, then we should have Faith, enough, to wait on deliverance.
WE do have a God that IS mindful of our situations. So WHY Panic? Simply PRAISE Him. Fear NOT, Believe Only! Gods People Cannot be depressed for to long…
WE should be Joyous! So, let things go quickly by Giving it to God, Not people. And GET Negative, unbelievers OUT OF YOUR LIFE! We’ve Got a 5 week Grace (5means grace) Period to work on eliminating negative thinking and everything else BUT God!”
Yesssss BOOM BISHOP! Sooooo many Nuggets in #BibleStudyClass #Gratitude #BethankfulforwhatyouGot Wow..

Closed minded self #righteous deluded #religious #hypocrites don’t #thrill me anymore. I got too much #work to do. Looking for #new #adventures now ..’ My #storm #passed leaving #blue skies.
Thank you #Jesus. Thank you #almighty; for #Great things you do for #Me. #Amen. I have been there critiqued that t shirt, it doesent fit anymore.
Left it for the very same who are products of it’s mental slavery going to its perpatrators churches, praying; to white Jesus – hanging on the wall, to save them.
Meanwhile, repressed, fuly fuelled with despicable, insatiable hate; towards anything around them they don’t understand. Dim wits.
And oh. They are black, and they are white; alike. So I leave it to them, to wear that t-shirt. Some times they need it more than you do. Love.
I don’t #think #racism has a #colour. I #feel racism has a #mood. Its #called #HATE. If #anything, that’s it’s colour ..’ Same goes for all forms of bigotry.
From this one. I can not run. It’s not black. It’s not white. It’s not straight. It’s not gay. It’s not right. It’s not wrong. It’s not agnostic. It’s not gnostic. It’s not old. It’s not new. It’s not the future. It’s not the past. It’s just love. And it pulls me to a Godly love ..’
When people use the name of God to hate. I’m like – Wao! I’m thinking vibrations and frequencies; and this one does not lie ..’ Maybe I’m just weird enough to think abstract thoughts to the wind of change ..’
