Gaby Moreno - Love is Gone (Se Apagó) from her Ilúsion album

Music Television presents Gaby Moreno and a song from her album titled Ilusion

It was just over ten years ago in August of 2006 when I heard Gaby Moreno for the first time. She covered Aretha Franklin, but very much with her own style of soul. After following her more closely, I learned she was much more multifaceted than I imagined. Her songs can be in either English, Spanish or mixed Spanglish and she is a true multi genre artist who mixes fusions of Latin, soul, R&B, blues and jazz that goes into a pop direction or dive into classical & folk Spanish styles depending upon her song or the mood that she decides to set.

In August of 2006 right I after I heard her and went out of my way to meet her, I relentlessly called her, not knowing enough about her story, hoping I could help her some how. Her career didn't seem to have broken through yet. There wasn't much information about her on the Internet at the time. I eventually got a return call and spoke to her and learned she had been through the mill, having been through deals with some major label people and things just hadn't clicked, yet. As people in the music industry have always known, one act out of dozens of signings might break through, if they are lucky!

There was something about Gaby that was so special. Not just musically special, but there was a distinct determination that she humbly had. The substance of her music and desire to play a lot of gigs and make more appearances than most acts is what ultimately set her apart from the competition, in my opinion. Her history is not a quick rise to fame story. But it is story of real soul from a unique artist who has worked long and hard to hone her craft and always grow new music that is always different from her last thing.

Her commitment to the craft of writing great songs and also her own excellent ability to curate collaborators, musicians, gear, wardrobe, a vibe and overall sound, has given her the kind of credibility that not all artists have.

After a lot of hard work, in 2013 she was not only nominated, but actually won in the Latin Grammy Award's category for Best New Artist. That was for the Spanish speaking Latin Grammy, which is separate from the English speaking Grammy organization. They are two separate worlds. I had hoped and predicted that after she won the Latin Grammy award, that she would go on to participate in the American or English speaking Grammy Awards. And finally in 2017, she achieved her first ever nomination for the American/English speaking Grammy awards for the Best Latin Pop category for her most recent (and fifth) album titled Ilúsion.

She has amassed and maintained a loyal audience with both her English repertoire and her Spanish repertoire. Some of her fan base may be separate, geographically and language wise, for the most part, but in the case of two of her most recent music videos below, she delivered both an English version and Spanish version of the same song and maybe it will help bridge the gap and bring more Spanish and English speaking fans together. Fans (like me) can actually learn the lyrics in both languages, and thus, use them to help us learn and understand a new language :)

The first video below is in English and titled Love Is Gone. It is one of her songs that goes in a style of pop that seems reminiscent of a stage that Elvis hit for a moment in his career. It features an emerging recording artist named Jonny P. The second video down is the Spanish version titled Se Apagó, which in English means "It turned off" or in this case, Love Is Gone. Enjoy! GC

Gaby Moreno - Se Apagó (Spanish Version)


The final video below is to a song titled Estaré which was also on Gaby's Ilúsion album. Gaby wrote the following about the song:
Throughout the recording of my album Illusion, was present at my side, my dog ​​Pepper (Peppy) who after a long illness died in Nov. 2015. Thinking about the idea for the new video of this nice song that I composed with my great friend Tommy Torres, brought me memories of her and I wanted to make a tribute by sharing it with you and your pets. Thanks to all who shared their photos and videos. A kiss to the sky to my Peppy and another one for their pets who show us every day unconditional love.

Julian Lennon - Saltwater 25

MusicTelevision.Com presents the music video for Julian Lennon's song titled Saltwater 25

Julian Lennon, the quiet, humble, gentlemanly son of the late great Beatles member John Lennon, wrote this about his re-make of his song titled Saltwater, a song he co-wrote with Mark Spiro and Leslie Spiro and released 25 years ago.
"I felt that after 25 Years of watching what’s been happening to Our Mother & All of Her Children, that I owed it not only to Myself, but to everyone, in many respects, to rerecord this song of sympathy/empathy, this Philanthropic Anthem, for future generations that hadn’t heard it before… And as a Shy & introspective Man myself, who has no political agendas, the only way to make My Voice truly heard in Life’s Arena, was to sing this song again, with a more appropriate, & more modern take on Today’s World, because it seems to me, and many others, that the World is 25 times worse than it was 25 years ago, on a Humanitarian & Environmental level… Hopefully, ‘Saltwater25’ can bring around that awareness of what We’re doing again, and maybe, just maybe, change a few minds into making some major changes, for the betterment of all."
Just below is the animated music video of the remake of Saltwater, this version called Saltwater 25.

Lyrics
We are a rock revolving
Around a golden sun
We are a billion children rolled into one
So when I hear about the hole in the sky
Creo Que Voy a Llorar

We climb the highest mountain
We'll make the desert bloom
We're so ingenious we can walk the moon
But when I hear of how the forest have died
Creo Que Voy a Llorar

I have lived for love
But now that's not enough
For the world I love is dying And now I'm crying
And time is not a friend (no friend of mine)
As friends we're out of time
And it's slowly passing by ....right before our eyes

We light the deepest ocean
Send photographs of Mars
We're so enchanted my how clever we are
Why should one baby feel so hungry she cries
Creo Que Voy a Llorar
I have lived for love
But now that's not enough
For the…

The Lyrics by Lumineers

Peace...
Shalom... Salaam... Shanti...
Wordlwide...

I say peace when I jump on a beat
I say peace when I'm walking the street
(When I'm walking the street...)
I say peace when the sun's in the east
I say peace when I need a release
(When I need a release...)
I say peace when I'm facing the beast
I say peace when I'm taking you deep
(When I'm taking you deep...)
I say peace 'cause I know I'm complete
I say peace
I say peace

P is for the people
E is for the essence
A is for the answers that we get from God's questions
C is for the conscious
E is for the Earth
So everybody gotta stand up and find they worth,
A world divided will often fall to disease and violence
Gotta get through the shame and the silence so we can be united,
Only the righteous will overcome and become enlightened,
Living your life
Loving your self
So let the light in

One Love, One Blood, and One Heart
One People, One World, and One God
We gotta come together united for One Cause
Put your hands up in the air for peace!
(2X)

Peace worldwide starts from inside
We gotta find a better way that we can be (Be!)
Peace worldwide starts from inside
Go 'head and let your mind body soul be free (Free!)
Peace worldwide starts from inside
The answer and solution always starts with me (Me!)
Peace worldwide starts from inside
If you want to save the world,
Be the change you wanna see!

I gotta peace of mind
I gotta piece of paper
About to make a perfect rhyme that the world'll savor
Counting stars gazing past 2011
To 2012 infinity - 777
I hope we make it to heaven on earth
To see our brethren
Come back, resurrected
Bob Marley the Legend
It's One Love
And me and my people are all connected
For world peace
We gotta have a common collective

Martin taught us the lessons
Of how we should be respected and
Gandhi truly embodied the non-violent perspective
Global community unity maybe you and me
Can sit down build upon love 'cause it's what we need
Let's get to farming and feeding the people starving
Across the whole planet
What's going on is alarming
Sustainable living
We don't need their provisions
We can grow it pick it an eat it
That's the world I envision
On a mission to spread peace
All around the world
Like Chase, paint a face
Make a beautiful mural
Africa needs peace
Europe and South America
Asia and Australia
Do you believe in miracles?
'Cause it can happen if everybody would tap in
To all the love in their hearts
And everyone started laughing
Time for action
No time to explain
It takes 6 billion willing people to change

Now imagine if the words of John Lennon would come alive
And every body in the world started to unite
Realize
It ain't far fetched - we can do it
Come together for a cause do it with the music
Use it, take time and pursue it
Dreams and aspirations are all up to you
'Cause everybody in the world wanna get free
And everybody in the world, wants peace!

One Love, One Blood, and One Heart
One People, One World, and One God
We gotta come together united for One Cause
Put your hands up in the air for peace!
(2X)

Peace worldwide starts from inside
We gotta find a better way that we can be (Be!)
Peace worldwide starts from inside
Go 'head and let your mind body soul be free (Free!)
Peace worldwide starts from inside
The answer and solution always starts with me (Me!)
Peace worldwide starts from inside
If you want to save the world,
Be the change you wanna see!

One love, One blood, and One Heart
One people, One World, and One God
We gotta come together united for One Cause
Put your hands up in the air for peace!
(2X)

Peace worldwide starts from inside (7X)
Put your hands up in the air for peace!

Jackie Bristow - Whistle Blowin' - Live

Jackie Bristow was recently the opening act in New Zealand for Bonnie Raitt
This is a tasty filmed live performance by the independent New Zealand recording artist named Jackie Bristow and her original song titled Whistle Blowin'. The song sounds like a real country hit in the old-school sense. There is strength, depth and a certain stillness that comes from artists like this one who have so diligently honed their craft.

Two Februaries ago, we featured the studio version and the official music video to Whistle Blowin' on our sister site MusicLoad. (Click here to see that). The song was track #1 on her album titled Shot of Gold.

She is backed by Mark Punch on electric guitar, Nick Gaffaney on percussion and Alison Wunderland on bass. Enjoy! GC
