In 2006 my son Ricardo bought me historian and activist Howard Zinn's book "A People's History of the United States," the American story going back to the Mayflower, but told from the perspective of the working class and all its struggles until present days.
Inspired by the book I wrote a song, Howard's Song To The People, and emailed it to Howard for his consideration, simply me and my guitar. He replied:
"Thank you so much for your song. My wife and I listened with pleasure. The lyrics are certainly appropriate. Best wishes."
Now, for my second CD release, we have produced the song and I have done the video. To see "Howard's Song To The People" click here.
As a reminder, I will be in concert to release my second cd, Tales Of Humanity, on September 16 at 8:30 PM at The Merrow in the Hillcrest area. Please join me and support this project for peace and justice.
