They Serve Our Country with Dignity( Original Written for Our Gay Soldiers)

A one on one


Hello my earthly family, it's been a while since we have had a one on one interaction. I sincerely hope you are were you want to be, at least health wise. I know there are so many crazy things happening in our world today and the changes are happening in mega speed, many have lost their jobs, homes, and their drive for living, but I want to say we can't ever loose our drive or focus in life.


We are a magnificent species beyond imagination, and although we have been programmed to think of the negative, we must redirect those thoughts and make the best with what we have. I try to touch one life if I can with every passing day, whether it be with my words or music, a random act of kindness or just by spreading love.


We live in a matrix that has been created to keep us out of touch with our true self. Make sure you hug someone, tell someone you love them and most of all remember to breath. Living life to the fullest and enjoying what you do, even if its doing nothing that is what it is all about just being. Love yourself over everything else and realize that Money is a piece of paper which has been given value over your life. Health, happiness and Love is what really matters.


Any way stay true to yourself and drop me a line if you have something on your mind, I will always be here for you.


Much Love


Mark Angelo

Immigration? The World belongs to all




I wrote this song a while back for the situation we are facing now with immigrants. I believe the world is here for us to roam freely on, how dare anyone tell us humans where we can go or be. I say freedom for all.

Check out my latest interview and album review


I have worked very hard in making this album, so when I read something as refreshing as this, it makes me feel good. Thank you Armando for the wonderful Review

http://www.ambiente.us/05010MarkAngeloCummings.html

"Mark writes and sings his own songs. The title track and wake up call, "Enslaved"
is my favorite song, with "It’s Been A While" a very close second, as it seems to
be the story of my love life. Even as a man I also felt touched by the bittersweet
track “Little Glass Princess”, how insecurity can be born from the
environment around you and eventually became your own
prison. “Love Only Knows Love” carries a happy go lucky tune,
with a very intense straightforward message about the
indefinable and endless boundaries of love.
Throw in the affected vocals of “No One Will Be Coming”, whose lyrics combine elements of George Orwell’s 1984, alien enslavement, and the Book of Revelations. Each song, however, has a place of its own. "

Mr. Mark Angelo has given us an album that begs to be listened to over and over
again. It’s especially a great cruising CD, you know those nice long “I feel like
thinking” drives. Each time you listen to it, you might just pick up another sound or another lyric you may have missed before, and that's what puts the pieces of this
album together.

It is impossible not to recognize a rising artistic talent in Mark Angelo. I find with all the renewed over-saturation in many of today’s musicians, very few of them actually display a mastery of craft, and even fewer of those actually have something to “truly” say. Mark clearly possesses both - the music just reaches through the ears and grips a hungry mind. This is a great record - and one of the only albums I would feel comfortable recommending to anyone, regardless of their taste".

IN my foot steps

The people around me inspire my songs. I read the about me in a fellow you tuber channel where he mentions how his father was slowing his dreams down, his father had other plans for this young man, and this young man wanted to make his father proud. I say how selfish of his father, the harm that he is doing is unthinkable. So I wrote a song to fit the situation.



I hope parents learn that their children do not belong to them and the harm they can do to an individual. Humanity is in need of growth, I hope my music can assist with it.

Peace and Love

Pride Fest Miami Beach April 17 2010






It's always a pleasure to be involved and participating in any events that celebrates diversity and shows the true colors of mankind. Violet and I spend the day at the gay pride in Miami Beach supporting and enjoying our GLBT family. It is always a pleasure to be involved and be apart of such a wonderful event. I got to see Alexis Arquette and gave her a copy of my CD Enslaved, I hope she enjoys it and gives me her feed back. Any way here some pics of today's event.

We are slaves of a system and mind frame


Many ask me why I came up with the title Enslaved for my album and what exactly do I mean by that? Well, first of all I believe we are slaves and imprisoned in a matrix with invisible bars. You say, how can that be, we live in a free country. I say do we? We live in a bubble created by our master giving us the illusion of freedom, but free we are not.

Let me explain. The day you are born you parents are given a piece of paper, a birth certificate that has a number, a stock value for the world banks. In 1933 they started this whole process when the Unites States was pretty much bankrupt, that paper certifies that another slave was born to the corporation and collateral for future payments.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47jqtTMkZWc


Go ahead and laugh and doubt all you want, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that something is very wrong in the world, that our children are pretty much up a creek without a paddle, that our situation is progressively getting worse and that this monetary system, the fiat system doesn't work. We think our civilization has been the only civilization and that we are in the right path, well we are so far from right that it is scary. Any way I don't really want to get into the whole political thing, but I do want to make people aware of what we have allowed to happen. They try to scare us with terrorist tactics, created wars for their benefits, dividing us with their political systems, and lying to you through their teeth, but most of you are so busy trying to make ends meet and keeping a roof over you heads that you don't see what is going on.


It is all a lie, this whole matrix we live in is faulty and corrupt. My album Enslaved is trying to bring forth a window of truth, an opening for you to see what is going on and become aware and awake, and to have people unite, stop fighting each other and love unconditionally. The album and it's content is a tool for humanity to use. To free yourselves you must first realize you are Enslaved. I am just the messenger, the rest is up to you. I love to write about things that our going on in the world. I love to bring awareness, unity and most of all spread Unconditional Love.

Please check out my Album, I created it for you, my human family who I love with all my heart.

Wake up my precious darlings, and let us break free from the chains.


Love always

Getting ready for the Show


Well it's Saturday morning and I am finally getting over this sinus infection from another dimension, never in my 45 years of age have I had to deal with such a monster. I contribute it to the added stress and excitement of making my CD and all the commotion around it. In addition the mold that has been lingering in my apartment has not helped, that's what you get for living near the water. Well thanks to two dear friends that recommended some natural alternatives, seeing that I don't do the medical thing, I am finally starting to feel better.


Oil of Oregano and Cats Claw are the two most magical herbs ever, and serve as a natural form of antibiotics, and cure all that I have ever seen. Needless to say, I was starting to worry since my voice was being affected as was my every day walking life. Whew, that was a close one. The oil of oregano is taken in a few drop mixed with either honey or olive oil taken orally, I also gargle with it using 2 drops in warm water, in addition, I put some in my ears with olive oil, I did everything except bath in it. If you are going to use this be mindful it is very strong, and I suggest you read up on it first. The cats claw came in an extract and you diluted with water, directions to be followed on bottle. Cats claw is a great anti inflammatory, helps with everything from getting rid of Candida, parasites, decrease tumor growths, and helps with building your immune system, another great marvel of mother nature.


Well now that I can worry less about my health which hasn't been to good lately, I can now start enjoying the ride of becoming a rising star and enjoying the relationship between my fans and I. I can't wait to start touring and having fun with those that I care dearly about, which is you. I write, sing, perform and do what I do for you. Thursday is approaching fast, and I am so excited and thrilled to be able to perform the songs on the album Enslaved and many more of my works. Don't forget to tune in Thursday morning on channel 39 WSFL around 6:30 am give or take, I will be on there for a few minutes promoting the show and singing with my acoustic guitar. Well feel free to drop me a line, and hope I get to see you at the Museum of Art.


Life is what we make it, we are the creators of our Universe. We have been given many gifts we just have forgotten how to use them. Unconditional Love is the key to unlock the chains of Enslavement we have been under, fly my precious doves and now you are loved.

Pride fest 2010 Oakland Park Florida I choose Life Preview




What gorgeous weather we had today at Jaco Pastorious Park at Oakland park Florida along with a great bunch that gathered today at Pride Fest 2010. The Color of the rainbow is definitely a great avatar for the GLBT community, for we are the collage of people who are colorful in every way. Here is a video with pictures of the event and a clip of the sound track I choose life, another great song in the soon to be release album Enslaved by Mark Angelo.

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

The album cover has been created plus check out a new song I wrote











Lyrica:
She works so hard for a living, her fingers bleed right thru the bone, and she has no one except her grieving, the years pass by and shes all alone. No one to care, no cards or letters, the rags and pain is all she knows. Ill take the time to make things better and share her story with this A song.

This ones for you the one without a name, this songs for you I hope you still remain true to yourself, your truth is all you claim this is your song. Dont you despair your life is not in vein, there are many out there whose life youve helped change stay true to yourself and know that soon one day youll be with him.

She wipes her forehead while she whimpers, this life has been so hard and cruel, she understands this is her calling, but only hopes it will end soon. The nights she spends in front of the mirror, the wrinkles grow without relief, the years have flown but she still misses him, when will she heal shell never know.
She blames herself for not enjoying the greatest years she ever knew, he was the best thing in her life time her work possessed her through and through. He became ill and while she traveled, he lost his life to a disease, she now regrets not have enjoyed him, her work consumed her every need.





Love to all of you, every single one of you

Showing my support to my transgendered family




Very few trans artist if any have actually placed trans related songs in their albums, it seems to be a taboo of sorts. However, I am true to my transgenderism and my trans family. I will never hide who I am, nor forget about my transfamily. Here are clips of two songs one for my MTF sisters and the other for my FTM brothers.






I hope you enjoy the tunes. Album will be out soon.

Clips and more Previews







I am like a kid awaiting Santa, waiting for my CD to finally be done. I can't express how long it has been since I have been wanting to make this CD, but just never got around to it, and no wonder there is a lot of work involved, lol. But none the less I have made the plunge and my baby will be born soon.

In the mean time here are some more clips of some of the songs that are on the album, I hope you enjoy the messages and my music style.

This song I wrote for my GLBT family and their plight for marriage




This song is my thoughts on the enslavement and guilt ridden belief that God only has one son who he sacrificed for the world. The whole story makes no sense. Jesus was a prophet in my eyes who came to free us from religion, we killed him and created the dogmatic belief we see before us today. I respect every ones belief system, these are my views and as an artist music is my canvas.



Much Love

Mark Angelo

Inching along




Hey guys after a painful 5 weeks with mixing and mastering, finally I got my master and was able to sent it off to Disc Makers. Hopefully the next stage is smooth and rapid so that I can bring to you Enslaved the Album. I have worked extremely hard on this project and hope it will open doors for me, and hearts and minds for others. I want to transmit information to help others break free from their chains. Unconditional love is the answer, not religion, not politics and definitely not finances. We are like babies in the path of growth and spiritual knowledge, but we are closer than we were before and timnes are changing.




Much Love to you my earthly family and I hope you enjoy the CD when it's done. I always think of you in every step I make and know you guys are the fuel that drives me.

The making of a dream part 3








After a hard long week, the recording process is finally over. I am excited to see the final product and be able to share it with the world. Ever since I was a child I always dreamt of making records and being a performer. I lost my singing voice when I underwent hormonal therapy and changed my gender. It was a great loss, but I had to deal with it since aligning my gender was just as important.

I decided to pursue my music career anyway, and figured that I still had a voice in me. My music comes from the heart and I have fun doing it. I hope you have fun listening to it, and can share the joy with me. I will keep you posted on the progress. In the meantime enjoy some of the clips I have put together so that you too can share the journey with me.

Much Love

The making of a dream part 2







Hey guys, well another recording session under our belt it has been three days in a row, unfortunately we didn't record the first night from all the excitement, and we have had several occurrences with the camera and all, but I have tried to salvage as much as I can to put together the memories and process of this wonderful journey. This dream has become a reality for me as has aligning my gender. Dreams do come true never give up. It all starts by loving yourself and honoring who you are. Here is the video from Friday nights session. Many thanks to Alex Grant owner of Home Sweet Home Studios,this young man is a hard working soul with a heart of gold who I will be forever grateful for meeting. I thank my best friend, my wife who has supported me along the way through all my endeavors and journey. I love you sweetie, buckle up cause the fun has just begun. To all my fans do know I do this for you, I love you all so very much and hope I can bring a smile to your face and touch your hearts in ways no one has. To the Source up above that inspires me and helps me put words on paper and strum the right notes on the guitar I thank you and know I am forever grateful for the life you have provided me, you complete me and I understand you fully, and I promise I will bring forth the message and help my human family get you too.




Love is the answer, love is the way. Live life to the fullest, allow your creative self to flow and be aligned with your higher source which lives through your experiences. Harm no one, not intentionally, be of service to others and live your life as if it where your last.

Love always

Mark Angelo
