Creatives Are Healers

“Creatives are healers, to support them is to support the harmonization of the planet with the Divine One.”

ONE WORD written & produced by Tajh Abdulsamad & Aïda Touré

tajh_abdulsamadFrom childhood, an artist whose voice has had a great influence on me is Tajh Abdulsamad, he was part of the Motown recording group “the Boys” in the late 80’s, early 90’s.

Tajh is one of the most spiritual artists I know so when he asked me if he could sing on a composition of mine, I naturally felt inclined to say yes; I was so curious to discover what he would hear in the composition as well as the way he would lay his vocals on it…

When Tajh let me hear “One Word” the-boys- for the first time I was blown away because his singing on it was so heartfelt and enchanting, it  had the sacred vibe I had hoped for so I was profoundly touched. I then learned a great lesson on creative synergy, the reality of frequency and on how honoring one’s soul matters most…

It was an immense pleasure for me to collaborate with an artist who has influenced me for so many years, thank you Tajh. You may listen to “One Word” below.

Life of Light (*Aida Toure’s poem plagiarized & illegally appropriated)

*UPDATE January 3oth 2008: INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT and COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT: this poem of mine “Life of Light” has been illegally appropriated by a singer against my wishes and without my permission. The poem has appeared in the inside jacket of his album without any credit nor copyright notice to my name. To see my poem illegally published on his album click here. The six last verses of the poem are missing. The purpose of this update is to reclaim the integrity of my work. ~Aida Toure.

Soul intertwined with Soul
We are the glorious colors
That make up the world,
We are the Word, scattered,

wildly wandering materiality
In longing to mirror Beauty.
We are the planets in orbit
Which from the time

We are born ecstatically sing:
Welcome, welcome to Love!
We are light in myriads of forms,
Mingling with individuality for

The few seconds called Life.
Still, all together we are one,
Manifest and resourceful like
the Solar star and its lovers

That whirl to stir the presence
dormant in us: See, there is no
such thing as exclusion in
this immense Universe.

In your pulse, there is a teacher
who repeatedly whispers:
Everybody is you!
Hold a hand, help the truth,

reflect the compassion and
the love that put you in motion
As life stirs every nation
To the Return’s station,

embrace one another
Despite the current difficulties,
The light does kiss the heart
That gives, heals and sings!”
