Anthony Everest Music Diaries with ‘Memories ’ – Still In The Zone –


Memories :: I keep looking for familiar endings, that I’ve already experienced, when God has, already prepared, me with new beginnings, with different endings, anew ..’ This philosophy, is akin to my performances and singing.

What I’m trying to say here, or trying to share, here is, don’t be afraid to let go ..’ Just do it – while you trust your instincts. Let your heart do the talking, don’t always lead with your head! You’d be surprised to learn that – the truth is always in love and the truth can not be suppressed. 

All you’d be left with is heart ache, head ache, regret and bitter disappointment’s – repressing the latter. And actually, the truth – is the only thing, that sets you ultimately – free!

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Halloween’ – Have Some Mercy ..’ – by Àrèmúorin

“Halloween night – again, when everyone is hyped up for some frenzy. More outlandish-frenzies”.

So I, embarked on a quest, as a halloween skeptic, to see what, the whole frenzy was about on my bon voyage ..’

This is what I unmasked. A bunch of normal-people, having a wonderful time, oblivious to what, or what not halloween means. I’m still unsold. To many, it’s just another xmas, or easter, or valentine. It’s been quite an interesting experience. An adventure to reminisce, over, and over, and over again. I’m still a halloween skeptic, but, intrigued never the less, on what – halloween’s about. Really!

“Mariah, (songwriter, producer, vocalist) – is one of the finest divas, to grace the planet – earth. Her success, as a recording artiste, of her generation, past and present – is rival to only a few. Her legacy and body of work is shockingly no fairy tale; but her love for music and her legion of adoring fans, world wide, is no walk in the park either – on any rainy day!” :: Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest 

Mariah Carey possesses a five-octave vocal range, and was ranked first in a 2003 MTV and Blender magazine countdown of the 22 Greatest Voices in Music, as voted by fans and readers in an online poll.

Mariah Carey -

Sasha Frere-Jones of The New Yorker adds her timbre possesses various colors, saying, “Carey’s sound changes with nearly every line, mutating from a steely tone to a vibrating growl and then to a humid, breathy coo.”Her wide vocal range allows Carey to take melodies from alto bottom notes to coloratura soprano upper register, and, according to music critic Jim Faber of New York Daily News, she can “cover all the octaves between those voice types], and [possesses] the agility to move between … with swiftness and aplomb.” Carey also possesses what she calls “whisper register”. In an interview with the singer, Ron Givens of Entertainment Weekly described it this way, “first, a rippling, soulful ooh comes rolling effortlessly from her throat: alto. Then, after a quick breath, she goes for the stratosphere, with a sound that nearly changes the barometric pressure in the room. In one brief swoop, she seems to squeal and roar at the same time: whisper register.”

Voice experts praise Carey’s vocal technique, like Stephen Holden who said, “she can deliver very accurate staccatos as well as tricky melismas, and she possesses a beautiful and solid trill in upper register”. Jeanette Lo Vetri states, “Carey is really a great technician. The staccatos are pin point, executed with amazing speed and control, the legato is a marvel of smoothness, she is the supreme mistress of melismas, she always keeps a neutral larynx position— except sometimes in her lower register— and she glides effortlessly from bottom to top and vice versa.” Malcolm Walker adds her vocal lines are “very well led, especially in piano register.”

Mariah on her voice: “I have nodules on my vocal cords. My mother says I’ve had them since I was a kid. That’s why I have the high register and the belting register and I can still be husky. The only thing that really affects my voice is sleep. Sometimes if I’m exhausted, I can’t hit the really high notes.” “My doctors showed me my vocal cords and why I can hit those high notes. It’s a certain part of the cord that not many people use—the very top. My natural voice is low. I have a raspy voice. I’m really more of an alto. But my airy voice can be high if I’m rested. […] When I was little, I’d talk in this really high whisper, and my mom would be like, “You’re being ridiculous.” I thought if I can talk like that I can sing like that. So I started [she goes higher and higher and higher] just messing around with it. I’d practice and practice, and she’d be like, “You’re gonna hurt yourself.” I’d tell her, It doesn’t hurt/ If I were to try and belt two octaves lower than that, that would be a strain.” Amen.

Happy New Year :: to You – I Hope You Celebrate!

I AM BLESSED POST CHRISTMAS – SO IS MY MOTHER, FATHER, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, FRIENDS, FOES; NEAR OR FAR :: I wish you all a pleaded one. Hope you had a merry merry Xmas & to a Happy New Year.
The Love of God has given me Freedom – to say what’s on my mind …’ Merry Christmas to you all.  Have a booty full festive one. Merry Merry! :: 
Can’t wait to see all my friends and family again over the festive period! Much Love* – God is Amazing. God is Wonderful. And above all, God is Mercyful. I’d be a fool if I confessed otherwise. 
Cuz I know the trials he has brought me through, to, and from. In the final hours of 2013. He has revealed more of myself and my purpose to me. More than I’ve ever imagined or fathomed. 

By process of elimination – he has revealed things, folks and places, to me – that I don’t need in my life; because – I have everything I need in him. 

You don’t need a demon – to tell it to you :: To know it :: Love frees me inside; and this I find abundantly, in knowing God and excercising my faith by hearing his word – daily!
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path’. Psalm 119:105

‘How long shall they kill our prophets ..’ – Bob Marley (Redemption Song) :: 

May God continue to shine his genuine light on us and remove us from the path of fake friends and jealous spirits. It’s the warnings of the spirit laid upon me this season. Especially – on jealous spirits! :: 
We wrestle not against flesh and blood – but against principalities and powers that rule – in high, dark – places. That’s why Jesus was born – and the reason why we celebrate him today. 
He is our salvation – the source to our goodness in redemption from the hopelessness, that otherwise – might have been. The more we draw closer – the more the enemy raises its ugly head, with lies, deceit, confusion, manipulation and sorts.
The blood of Jesus and his life was a beautiful sacrifice in lieu. Amen 
Happy NY

Demons like to come and tell lies on you – when they can’t figure out how to manipulate – anymore! Mercy – Jesus* ::
