The time has come that the long awaited release of this Aaliyah Tribute is finally coming into fruition! Aaliyah has been credited for helping redefine contemporary R&B, pop and hip hop, earning her the nicknames "Princess of R&B" and "Queen of Urban Pop". Billboard lists her as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years, and the 27th most successful in history. I have always loved the music and voice of Aaliyah. I still remember when she first came on the scene as a young artist. There was something about her that was different. She had a magnetic and attractive energy about her. I remember people comparing her to being the modern day Donna Summers. I have always wanted to redo her songs as instrumentals.
I started working on the idea about 10 years ago. I kept putting it on the shelf because of other projects I was working on and it didn’t seem like the right timing for it. I believe and know the world is ready for this project and I am now taking it off the shelf to complete.
There are so many awesome singers and musicians I have been working with to record the music for this project. Each song features a singer and/or musician that have been influenced by Aaliyah in one way, shape or form.
I wanted to not just rerecord Aaliyah’s music but to arrange them using different styles while keeping the integrity of the original composition. The mission or purpose of this recording is to emanate Love, Healing and good vibrations in the world. You will walk away feeling positive and resonating with the intentions that created the music.
I often used to say that musicians are master manipulators of the vibration we call sound. Because we have that gift of altering or affecting your vibrational
pattern with music, people find value in that subconsciously and consciously, and gravitate towards more of it. The Law of Vibration states that everything in the Universe moves and vibrates - everything is vibrating at one speed or another. Nothing rests. Everything you see around you is vibrating at one frequency or another, and so are you. However, your frequency is different from other things in the universe and that's why it seems like you are separated from what you see around you; people, animals, plants, trees and so on. In truth you are not separated - you are in fact living in an ocean of energy - as we all are. We are all connected at the lowest level - a level professor John Hagelin calls The Unified Field. Everything has its own vibrational frequency - the table - the car - the picture frame - the rock - even our thoughts and feelings. The Law of Vibration governs it all . A440 or A4 (also known as the Stuttgart pitch), which has a frequency of 440Hz, is the musical note of A above middle C and serves as a general tuning standard for musical pitch.
This project will be tuned to A=444 hz. It has been said and experienced that tuning to 444 hz creates frequencies that resonate with our bodies and DNA naturally and causes healing and miracles. The differences are subtle and may not be that evident from listening. But in some cases, you can feel the difference. Frequency and vibrational patterns can be used as weapons as well as healing. 528 is known as the miracle tone and often associated with DNA repair. It resonates with the body and nature. Our emotions have a direct influence to the environment around us. As a musician and producer, I am aware and conscious of the power and responsibility I have in creating music. The intentions behind creating music directly affect the person listening to it, whether good or bad (fast or slow vibration).
