BOY, I'm glad I did this morning. His latest song is called 'MY PEOPLE', and it just came out. It was inspired by those changes happening in the Arab world. It's all about change and freedom. Those kinda tunes are all cool in my book, they remind me of the civil rights movement with MARTIN LUTHER KING jr., and CEASAR/CESAR CHAVEZ for Hispanics in the 60s and 70s....WOW..that's when I WAS a Chicana, and married to Ernesto...that was MY music. Guess, I'll always be a 'flower-child at heart. Cool.
Go to RIZ CHAN.... HERE to see a music clip of Yursef's new tune. AND, hear Cat/Yursef talk about his life and views. I especially enjoyed the video...maybe you will too. Jan
I've just gotta post 'MORNING HAS BROKEN' by Cat Stevens. I found this on YouTube posted by Jezzkruishizzle
