Wade 3: Right Now (the video)
In every generation, an artist emerges whose innovation and cutting edge style changes the face of music by combining different genres, taking music in a new direction. Ray Charles did it in the 1950’s and 60’s, merging R&B with gospel to create soul, along with Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix who both added a psychedelic edge to their soul, funk, rock, and blues. Prince and Rick James turned the trick in the 1980’s, incorporating new wave and punk in their funk and soul. In this era,Wade3 appears ready to be that innovative artist that will blaze a new trail in music in the 2K.

Armed with a varied array of soulful compositions recorded with some of the world's most prolific producers, David Mensah, UK singer songwriter is set to wow audiences when he takes to the stage to perform tracks from his upcoming Debut album.

David's music has already clocked up over 100,000 hits on www.myspace.com/londoncityrnb which is one of the reasons he was choosen from thousands of artists to be featured on the myspace homepage.

He has not wasted the opportunity to learn and develop as an artist working and performing alongside legendary artists such as Jimmy Cliff, Alexander O'Neal, Shola Ama, Damage, Billy Ocean, Ruby Turner and Roachford to name a few.

April 2008 saw the release of “Food of Love” as Mensah joined forces with legendary artists such as the 30 million record selling Billy Ocean, Junior Giscombe, Ruby Turner, Roland Gift, Janet Kay, Tasmin Archer, and Roachford to name a few. They came together to produce an album called “Wilberforce 200, Change is Gonna Come” celebrating 200 years since the abolition of slavery. Proceeds of the album are going towards charities, Save the Children, Freetown Society and the Prince's Trust to stamp out modern day forms of slavery.

Mensah recently recorded the song “Close to My Roots” with the long-time Roc-A-Fella lieutenant, Memphis Bleek who featured on Jay-Z's debut album. “Close to My Roots” is the title track for a project put together by top US producer Coptic who rose to global success with records produced with Biggy, P.Diddy, Snoop Dog, Faith Evans, Bobby Valentino, Trey Songs, Memphis Bleek, Black Rob, Ludacris and Ice Cube. Some of the highlights of Coptic's smash hits have included “Come to Me” (Remix) for P.Diddy, Big, and Nicole, as well as the worldwide #1 hit “I Need a Girl” with P.Diddy and Usher.

Hassanah and Big Brooklyn Red

Sorry for the delay....this hiatus was not planned. My laptop was stolen out of my hotel room back in January! Can you believe it? First the appendectomy, then the theft. What was upsetting about the laptop was the hotel staff gave a complete stranger access to my room. Yeah, while I was out checking out the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, someone was in my room jamming to all the great music and videos I had amassed over time. It's been about five weeks and still, no settlement from the hotel. Needless to say, I won't stay with that chain again. Where did I stay? I thought you'd never ask!

http://www.ibishotels.com  or http://www.accorhotels.com

Turns out I was the victim of  scam targeting foreign tourists. My personal information was given to an outsider who proceeds to "check in" to my room. No identification is necessary as long as the name and room number are presented by the person requesting access. Even though the staff member admitted that she neglected to verify identification and I lost over $6,000 worth of music, programs, photos, and other persoanl items, Accor Hotels and Ibis Hotels have not compensated me in my loss. I'm telling everyone this so they will be aware of the scams, the lack of security, the negligence of the staff, and most of all, so you can better protect yourself from being in such a predicament. How much is your identity worth? What's the price to pay for allowing someone into your hotel room? Think about it!

 

On a brighter note, we come back to the music. Hassanah continues to shine and her new tracks are now on iTunes and at Amazon.com! Remember Hassanah? Download this gem with her and Big Brooklyn Red and then be sure to holla back at me. Much more to come, sorry for the delay.
