Empowering and Inspiring Women Globally- Open Your Heart 04/20 by DiannaBelleRose | Entertainment Podcasts:
















For Immediate Release

Multicultural European Singer-Songwriter EMILY JOHNSON Releases Her Debut EP OPEN YOUR HEARTProduced By NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN

“She has an extraordinary voice, superb.” - John Mclaughlin

San Rafael, CA - Sometimes known as “The Lady of Heart,” EMILY JOHNSON is a Bulgarian-born Nigerian singer, songwriter, and composer. Having performed around the world for many years, she is releasing OPEN YOUR HEART, her debut EP, on May 11, 2018, with the help of Tarpan Records in the United States. This EP was produced by NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN and features 4 original songs. 

EMILY JOHNSON was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, at a time when the country was still under the influence of the Soviet Union. Her mother is Bulgarian and her father Nigerian, a mix which made her quite different from the other children in her own neighborhood and even her own country. Different by color, but also different in her heightened sensitivity which is expressed so wonderfully in her music.

“Open your heart,” EMILY JOHNSON sings on her soon to be released debut EP of the same name. To her this statement is more than words; it is a way of life. On this release of original songs, she creates her art with something beyond passion, giving herself to her audience with a great generosity, energy, and sincerity. Emily brings others together to ignore prejudices, erase borders, and overcome difficulties. She shares with them a simple pleasure which is to SING!

Emily has been fortunate to work with some music industry greats, including the incredible guitarist John McLaughlin who invited her on stage for an emotional performance of “Redemption Song.” Another is the world famous, Grammy Award-winning American producer NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN (Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin), who graciously opened the doors of his Tarpan Studios to produce OPEN YOUR HEART.
 
Ever since John McLaughlin discovered EMILY JOHNSON on stage on the Côte d'Azur, the Mahavishnu Orchestrafounder has consistently praised her as an artist he already considers “a star.” Emily would certainly reply that she also owes much of her success to his friendship and support. John McLaughlin says, “If one day EMILY JOHNSON is on the top of the charts, it will be because of her talent. She has an extraordinary voice, superb. She has it all! An inner and outer beauty. She can sing everything.”

Emily appreciates this immense compliment coming from an artist with such a career. “He is more than a musician; John McLaughlin is a Legend and a great friend and I am so blessed to know him!” she says. They have performed together several times both live and in the studio. Their relationship is more than beautiful; it is strong, sincere and much more than words. 

Even better, John invited EMILY JOHNSON to cross the Atlantic to join NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN, the former Mahavishnu Orchestra drummer who became one of Billboard Magazine’s Top Ten Producers of all time. “John has opened up new horizons for me,” says Emily. “He is not only a friend but also my Light.” “The Light,” as she sings on the track from OPEN YOUR HEART that she wrote and dedicated to him.

OPEN YOUR HEART features some amazing performances, with NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN playing many instruments and featuring performances by Chris “Heist” Walden (Keyboards/Electronic Drums, “Open Your Heart”), Jim Reitzel (Guitar, “Open Your Heart”), and Cornell “CC” Carter and Deedee Simon (Back-up Vocals, “The Light” and “Open Your Heart”). The song “I’m Blessed” features Rapper G-DubOPEN YOUR HEART was recorded at Tarpan Studios by Jim Reitzel and mixed by Dave Frasier.

Today this beautiful story continues with new collaborations on both sides of the Atlantic and with the release of her first project, simply titled OPEN YOUR HEART. An obvious choice, isn't it?

Empowering and Inspiring Women Globally - 'Evil Enough' 04/06 by DiannaBelleRose | Entertainment Podcasts

Empowering and Inspiring Women Globally - 'Evil Enough' 04/06 by DiannaBelleRose | Entertainment Podcasts:














Female Metal Guitarist/Vocalist Tara Lynch to Release Debut Album “Evil Enough” on Friday the 13th Feat. All-Star Line-Up!
Featuring members of Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Vince Neil, Tony MacAlpine, Yngwie Malmsteen and Dokken!
Los Angeles - Tara Lynch (aka “Gui-Tara”) is a guitarist, composer, vocalist and songwriter who delivers heavy metal thunder with prominent melodic guitar riffs, shredding leads and powerhouse vocals. Tara will be releasing her debut album “Evil Enough” this April on Friday the 13th. 
“Evil Enough” is a melodic metal album featuring Tara Lynch on all guitars and vocals along with an all-star lineup of guest performances by Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath/Dio), Tony MacAlpine (solo/Planet X), Phil Soussan (Ozzy/Billy Idol), Mark Boals (Dokken/Yngwie Malmsteen), Brent Woods (Vince Neil/Sebastian Bach), Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper) and Björn Englen (Quiet Riot/Yngwie Malmsteen). “Evil Enough” is produced by Brent Woods. All words and music written by Tara Lynch.
Says Tara, “The entire 'Evil Enough' album is a musical autobiography. Very often, the term 'blood, sweat and tears' is used as a metaphor to describe the work one puts in to something that they are 110% invested in. This would be an accurate metaphor where I am concerned. It has been a tremendously emotional journey into my own soul in order to both write the lyrics that explain my experiences, as well as write the melodies to convey the feelings involved within each experience.”
Primarily self-taught, Tara played both electric and acoustic guitar and wrote songs in her childhood, picking up the bass, drums and piano along the way. Very serious about her musicianship and the unending desire to improve, Tara has personally studied with Steve Vai (Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Björn Englen (Quiet Riot/Yngwie Malmsteen) and Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater). 

Featured performers on Tara Lynch's “Evil Enough” (alphabetically):
Vinny Appice - Drums (Dio, Black Sabbath, Last In Line)
Mark Boals - Vocals (Yngwie Malmsteen, Dokken, Raiding the Rock Vault)
Björn Englen - Bass (Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Soul Sign, Dio Disciples)
Tony MacAlpine - Keyboards (Tony MacAlpine, Planet X, CAB)
Glen Sobel - Drums (Alice Cooper, Hollywood Vampires)
Phil Soussan - Bass (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol, Last In Line)
Brent Woods - Producer, Synthesizers, Background Vocals (Vince Neil, Sebastian Bach, John Waite)

“I have known Tara for years now and have always been amazed by her grace and poise as a lovely human being and dear friend. Well now it is time for all to be amazed by these divine musical gifts that she also possesses! A great player and singer to not only work with, but to listen and Rock to!!” - Tony MacAlpine

“Tara is like discovering an unfound gem. Combining fantastic guitar playing, great songwriting and amazing vocals she is a new force to be listened to!!” - Vinny Appice 

“Tara is an as yet greatly undiscovered talent. Writer, guitar player and singer she represents a powerful presence in this mainly male dominated genre. Working with her on her new record it is evident that she is destined for greatness.” - Phil Soussan 

“Tara Lynch has a beautiful natural vibrato that I have only heard in the very top guitar players.” - Derek Sherinian 

“Producing Tara's album was an amazing experience. Her music, lyrics, voice and playing are melodic, aggressive, contemporary, classic and honest... It’s refreshing to hear an artist truly pissed off again!” - Brent Woods

“After knowing her as a friend for many years, I knew it would be fun, but working with Tara is like holding a Tiger by the tail, she is so full of talent and energy, knows exactly what she wants and is not afraid to go for it! It was a really great experience!! - Mark Boals

“Tara is just a pure pleasure and honor to work with. She knows what she wants but yet so humble and grateful. And what a talent!” - Björn Englen

“Drummers like to be challenged and Tara's music definitely fits that description. I had a blast recording these songs and it’s an honor to be featured on a record with so many other great players and friends!” - Glen Sobel 

In closing Tara has this to impart, “This album has been a labor of love and an important part of both my personal and musical growth process. At the end of the day, it's an album that I am extremely proud of and I really hope it touches people out there in the world who can relate to it and that it can help them know they're not alone.”

Along with the release of “Evil Enough” on Friday the 13th of April, Tara Lynch plans to tour in 2018. “Let's rock!” - Tara Lynch

SheDoes At The County Supervisor's Hearing, Los Angeles-Voices of the Homeless Women


29186599_10155816842507107_2810268956575662080_o
I was so honored to be able to speak today and most importantly have these brave women next to me. It was an honor and privilege to be able to share my story and make an impact. This is just a beginning of our journey, WE are here to make the necessary change so no woman would ever suffer again. #SheDoes

These are our #SheDoes Warriors who spoke today at the Measure H fund allocation hearing. These #SheDoes Warriors not only spoke, but 5 shared their personal stories of surviving sexual assault, rape, homelessness and mental illness. They spoke as women who conquered insurmountable odds who are now advocating for those whose voices are being ignored. The panel started on a light note but after hearing these #SheDoes Warriors, the mood changed from happy to somber to an atmosphere of how do we help our homeless mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers. Our speakers humanized a dehumanized population using their own experiences. 
One of the moderators behind the panel kept wiping away tears & afterward many came up to our group and thanked us for the impact our speakers made. What #SheDoes will achieve beyond sheltering the first 1000 women is humanizing and changing the way people see homeless women.
That is the power of the hashtag #SheDoes. That is the difference you make every time you comment #SheDoes. If it hasn’t occurred to you yet, please know that what you are doing is changing the way Angelenos see homeless women from drug addicts & failures to showing them as our mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers!

 'Simple, there are 6,700 women living unsheltered on our streets by official count. By unofficial count, including the women crashing on couches and sleeping in cars, we probably have over 30,000 women in the city of Los Angeles and over 50,000 in Los Angeles county. These women are continuously exposed to extreme violence,sex crimes, and the weather.' Mel Tillekeratne

Bio
Lindsay Bellows weaves together light-hearted folk/pop with fierce R&B vocals to create music that ignites the spirit and soothes the soul. When she’s onstage alone, the magic of Lindsay’s artistry becomes apparent as her songs are built from scratch, bringing together melodies, harmonies, and percussion using only her voice and a loop pedal, intimately revealing one part at a time to the audience. A naked solo is gradually dressed up with rich vocal layers until this one-woman act begins to sound more like a soaring choir or a pulsing multi-piece band. ?

Empowering and Inspiring Women Globally- Domestic Violence Awareness 2017 10/15 by DiannaBelleRose | Entertainment Podcasts:
"Domestic violence is, in many ways, a quiet epidemic. Though in plain sight, victims are often invisible, fearfully denying their situation and hiding behind the facade of a happy home. But the statistics reveal a shocking reality. Every nine seconds, a woman in America is assaulted or beaten, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. A mind-boggling one in three women (and one in four men) has been a victim of physical brutality by an intimate partner, the group also reports.

Diana Bellerose Foundation- Raising Money for Education and DV Prevention For Women and Girls

 I wish to visit India and eventually Pakistan this year. My mission is to help educate girls and boys of how pivotal is to love each other and dissolve differences based on gender, language, color of the skin or anything which creates separation because WE are the same, so I am looking for a crew to accompany me when I visit India this year. The reason is because I wish to interview leaders, visit schools, learn about their life and learn about what they wish to see changed.
I would love if someone or a company wish to be be part of the interviews and help finance the visit. In exchange, they will have their companies name connected to this amazing documentary and their financial support will make a huge impact in the lives of  children and their families.
There is no a price tag attached to something like this, the feeling of making a difference in the World is the return for the investment.
In addition, I will add my book to help as well, every book sold the proceeds will go towards education and building of schools as well us the mission for ending gender based fetus abortion. This will eliminate the violence against women and help create the World we always wanted with more education anything is possible.
Please contact my assistant Priyanka Gupta who will answer any questions you might have, and we are looking for make up artist who will have his/her name attached to the documentary in return. Thank you, Dianna Bellerose
