In this edition of Angel Watchers I am featuring Straalen McCallum singing "Wiyathul", an incredibly beautiful song from his "A Little Faith" album. This song literally brought tears to my eyes. It is written in Galpu, an aboriginal dialect. "Wiyathul" has a very interesting history. It was composed by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu who is an Australian Aboriginal. He was blind. Sadly, Geoffrey just passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 46, on July 25, 2017. Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.

In this edition of Angel Watchers I am featuring the angelic Martin Savi. This is what beautiful music, and a soulful presence is all about. Martin's music has become the soundtrack of my life. I can't hear enough of it. In the video clip below he sings an extremely haunting rendition of "La Carretera (The Road)". God bless you Martin Savi.

Emanuel Zekic, a young Roma singer from Serbia, can only be described as amazing. His magical voice has many shades. You can call it sultry, passionate, exotic, soulful. But, whatever adjectives you prefer to use, the fact is that Emanuel's superb singing needs to heard by the whole world. In his voice you can hear the mysteries, pain, joys, and hopes, of the Roma people. Many of the microtones that he sings, cannot be written in standard Western musical notation. You won't find those notes on a piano keyboard. To perform them, one has to live these notes, and feel the subtle intonations of the music. To the Western ear, the microtones are aromatic, and redolent of unseen things, and takes us to emotional states that we have not transcended to before. I must say that when I first heard Emanuel's music, I wept from the joy, and sheer beauty of it all. In fact I still cry whenever I hear him sing. I too have Roma blood running in my veins. Emanuel has the most beatific, and angelic smile that I have ever seen. God has truly blessed him with wonderful gifts. Click on the video widgets below to hear him sing two hauntingly beautiful songs, "Oprosti Mi (Forgive Me)", and "Ti Ja Vise Ne (You And I Are No Longer)". Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.

In this edition of Angel Watchers I am featuring the return of the very talented actor, Hale Lytle. I featured him previously on Angel Watchers, and those posts can be found here: Henley - Hale Lytle and Hale Lytle A short time ago there was buzz on the internet that Hale was to reprise his role as Ted Henley in a theatrical version of "Henley", but alas, that was not to be. Unfortunately, director Craig Macneill made a big mistake in casting another young actor, Jared Breeze, in the role of Ted Henley. Jared is a light-weight actor who does not have the emotional depth of Hale Lytle. The remake is called "The Boy", and it is a rather limp and boring film. Hale Lytle has appeared in a theatrical film called "Young Bodies Heal Quickly, and several remarkable short films "Weasel", "Killer", and "Fort Apache". You can watch "Killer" and "Fort Apache" in their entirety below. Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.

In this edition of Angel Watchers I am pleased to present a fantastic musical group from Puerto Rico called Tick Tock. "Dime Que Si (Tell Me Yes)" by Tick Tock is a very infectious song. It's hard to keep still while listening to it! Rum is not the only export from Puerto Rico, Tick Tock has supplanted it as a viable commodity. This group was created by a former manager of Menudo, of days past. In fact, former members of Menudo gave their blessings to this new group, when they were first introduced. I like Tick Tock a lot.

In this edition of Angel Watchers I am featuring an incredible new singer from Italy by the name of Matteo Martignoni. Matteo does a very beautiful cover of the late great Lucio Dalla's haunting "Anna e Marco (Anna and Mark)". Matteo gives a superb performance that just melts the heart. One might say that he truly sings with angel fire love. Please click on this link to watch "Anna e Marco". This song will make you look at the world, and life, differently. It is so good. Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.
