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.

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.

Much Love

Mark Angelo

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.
