Gospel Artist, Chris Bolton

This past, Friday, I had the distinguished pleasure of speaking with Gospel Artist, Chris Bolton about his upcoming tour honoring Caregivers.

Interview:

Ramelle:   Hong long have you been singing?
Chris:  I have been singing since the age of 6 years old, I am originally from the Chicago area, and my grandfather sang in a quartet, so singing has just been in my blood, I started professionally when I turned 19, with background vocals for Mary MaryAndre Crouch which to me was a blessing. I currently can be heard on the intro of Snoop Dogg’s Gospel CD titled Bible of Love.
Ramelle  You have an upcoming tour called the Chris Bolton Experience Tour.,  giving honor to Caregivers (a family member or paid helper who regularly looks after a child or a sick, elderly, or disabled person) tell me why such an honor.
Chris:    The Chris Bolton Experience shows are because I became a Caregiver to my mother who passed away from breast cancer; many times when our parents get older; we want to put them in a nursing home, and I could not do this to my mother.  I stepped up; it was a struggle, now I want to help give information about programs available to Caregivers, and about Caregiver solutions. I did not know about them when I cared for my mother, so this is something definitely from my heart.
Ramelle:    This is wonderful; lastly, the great, Aretha Franklin has passed, do you have a favorite song by her?
Chris:   Oh, wow, I love all of Aretha Franklin music, I mean she touched on every genre, from gospel, classical, R&B, but my favorite has to be “Natural Woman.”

Spring Stream

 Spring Stream

 

 

Spring Stream is a poem by Ramelle, to celebrate Springtime

(Ramelle Carter Blog)

 

The fresh air is pure bliss

Cleanliness of the vibrant smell of success is what scores high on the list

God straightens a pathway to undisputed truth

At my golden age of forty plus; I am exceptionally still in my youth

A curtsy stance is the best way to show it off, “My Pleasure,” I speak

As low in my self-esteem, I sink, lands me close to self-defeat

When springtime arises, I gladly acknowledge the superb greeting it brings to my heart

I will not utter the idea of this being the point of no return; I am much too smart

The shapes, colors, lights, camera action and it all goes away

Play my cards right, and nothing can lead me astray

Now here the season of spring has sprung

The flowers sing and dance a song

Spring stream down my eyes thus has begun

Holiday Joy

Holiday Joy

Holiday Season is upon us again

Many beautiful things to be thankful for this whole year-long. I want to start with visitors to my website; you are invaluable to me. I am grateful to family, friends and loved ones. Especially to my people who came out and supported me by attending Goddess Empowered 6, the show. Everyone who has interest, your companionship and compassion are invaluable. The holiday season should be a time to reflect and reminisce on complete gratitude.

The horrible Las Vegas shootings moved me to take time off from Blogging to spend time with family. My kids’ birthdays start in October for my youngest son, November for my oldest son, and December for my daughter who all turn older at the end of the year.
Therefore reflections of the year ending bring about inspiration to do better. I do not set everything in stone. Instead, I go with the flow and adjust as I persist. The purpose is to move forward with building blocks of change and push forward with grace and prosperity.

My money-saving tips

Here are what I call (5) festive ideas:

1) A co-worker introduced my office staff to https://www.elfster.com/ as part of our annual gift exchange; my name was pulled by the boss, guess what; I received a Fenty beauty product. I cannot wait to tickle my face with it. We decided on payments of $25 or less for the gift exchange, and it was a lot of fun.

2) I performed in Goddess Empowered 6, the show, and for the Finale we were told to purchase an ugly sweater, and after going to (2) thrift stores in my area, I decided to decorate one of my old sweaters, I went to the nearest dollar store and as a result here is the finished product, my ugly Christmas sweater. Here you see my version of DIY craftsmanship. For those with a DIY flair, making things as gifts sound like a winner to me, especially for all my Happy Kwanza family and friends. Also, please make sure your crew is into handmade gifts. Ram for Christmas

3) Think about purchasing gifts in advance. If possible try to start as early as September, then do it. I wanted to start as soon as this time but relented as all my two boys wanted was a PS4. My daughter, music so I was pretty much done.

4) Donate to a toy drive, here in the Los Angeles area they have Spark of Love https://www.calfund.org/abc7-firefighters-spark-love-toy-drive-fund/ House Full of Toys http://www.kjlhradio.com/event/house-full-of-toys-benefit-toy-drive/ and a new venture I attended this year Mistletoe Magic hosted by Media Moguls, Bianca Bee, Mariah Darsha, and Trendy Mii, thank you, ladies, for the invite. apple-tree-and-blue-sky-picjumbo-com

5) Remember the true meaning of the holiday is the birth of Jesus Christ. Gifts are excellent, most of all year round for all special occasions or times. No matter what religion you follow, please remember Jesus gave his life for all humanity.

Peace, Remain Safe and Don’t Be Mean in 2018
