What's Hot

Linda D thats who!  Linda D was in Studio October 7 through the 16th. She is the first signed Artist at SHAMEL RECORDS...  She blew us away with her powerful vocals and soulful sound, said Top Record Executives.  The project entitled, "God Will" is underway and great emphasis have been placed on moving ahead to market the project.

She is truly a great talent and we plan to take the industry by storm with Miss D.  Bar none, she is simply the best!!  We rank her at the top with all other well known female artist and I am willing to go out on a limb and state that "Linda D she is far better than most of the top female artist who are selling units and have made it on BB Top Ten, today.

The Plan is to build up her fan base and to this we will use innovative marketing schemes and simply put, get her heard to allow her powerful voice and soulful overtones to do the rest, the people will fan up after this, I am sure of it.  We all love to hear good music and singing and she has the complete package.  You don't want to miss hearing Linda D.  Hear her at

Kill them ALL- RIP Troy A. Davis

Kill them ALL, that seems to be the way we operate in this mean world today.  Who has the right to take another man's life.  Remember, Jesus was put to death by the government. Judas lied on him for 30 pieces of silver.  Government was wrong about Him but the people wanted blood but little did they know death could not hold his spirit, for in 3 days He arose from the dead.

We are suppose to be a Christian Nation and living under Grace not the law of Moses (an eye for an eye).  Why do we, "men" always try to live this thing, called life, without God? Why do our justice system continue to make decisions without the principles of God's word?

May God for give us all for being silent Troy A. Davis  for not speaking up for you and those who are helpless and not able to speak up for themselves.  Isn't this the Christian thing to do?  God teaches us through his word that we should be speaking us loud and clear.

Kill them ALL, I say no, No, NO!  Vengeance is mine thus say the Lord.

My prayer:  Forgive me oh Lord for my weak since of faith and love for mankind, my neighbor and awaken my spirit so that I may become more obedient to your word, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Random Thoughts

This is just a simple song, so I 'm not going to keep you long, hoping we may find out now if our faith is strong in Christ Jesus, yes,  the Living Water is He.  I am living in God's favor for this is true and as far as His blessings, yes, count them in too.  Do you slip and fall like I do?  Well getting back up is the thing to do for there is only one who is righteous and He is not of this world but He created the Heavens and the Earth.

My Father's sprit is so HOLY the flesh cannot bare His presence, the eyes cannot look upon Him, the ears that hear causes men to tremble and stand as dead men.  He sent his Son Jesus, some call the Son of Man, I love to call Him Savior because He died for you and me, a living sacrifice that is why He came so the world through Him may be saved.

His life was a ransom paid for our sins and at the end of the age He will return again.  If you haven't you heard then let it be known that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and coming again, coming again, coming again, do you believe, is your faith strong?

Open Letter

MLP aka Shamel


Dear Momma,

If you don't sit down!
I trust that this letter finds you and finds you well? I just thought I'd drop you a few lines to tell you thank you for never leaving us and to let you know that I Love you and miss you so very much. The relentless sacrifices you made while raising us and keeping our family (8 kids) together was absolutely nothing short of a miracle.  Most of your life was spent seeing to it that we had a roof over our heads, food to eat, clothes on our backs and keeping us all clean.

Shamel's rules for presenting Ideas

Adventurer, Contributor, Finisher, Thinker, Trendsetter, Communicator.  Do any of these terms describe you?  How about; Perceptive, Creative, Persuasive, Entrepreneurial?  Learn what these terms mean and how they apply to you, they are the term-codes for presenting ideas.

The quality of your idea Makes A Difference

One thing that I always remembered from my days as an Arizona State Government Official, was to let ideas compete not people.  This way you will by no means take things personally and it will allow you to remain professional.  Instead of wasting time competing with one another, more time will be spent on being creative and innovative, allowing best ideas to prevail.

Conquering the competition by Shamel

Most of you are probably wondering what does it really take to compete in today's fast paced world of business?  One way I believe it takes to become competitive is to always have several well thought out ideas ready at a moments notice, really!  However,  no one way is necessarily right, so I say concentrate on releasing your inner creative passion for creating ideas and be you!    Here's what you may want to know...

The Dating Game Gone Wild!!

The dating game is gone bonkers and the intenet is the flagship leading the way. Has the dating game gone wild? What ever happened to meeting the girl or guy of your dreams in a Church, at the Library, in the Supermarket, out walking your pet, or while away at college or at the club? 

Although these traditional methods of dating still exists they are becoming increasingly more outdated, at least this is what the polls indicate...

Enough Already

No more Social Security Checks, are you kidding me?  How did we let this happen?  Were we all asleep?  OMG, just the thought of hearing this makes me sick to my stomach!  This country should be outraged, we should  be verifiably angered to the point that We The People, (This entire Nation) right now, should be marching to Capital Hill in protest demanding...

Everlasting Life!

If you are asking yourself, what does it take to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven?  And, what must one do to become saved?  Well, first and foremost we have to recognize that God does exist!  Then we  must understand that God sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world to save the world from...

Left Out In The Cold! Blessed by God's Grace

Unable to depend on friends when you really and truly need them, hurts!.  That's why you should never place anything or anyone on this earth before family.  Friends, who are they, I mean really, who are they?  If you must have true friends they should exalt you not put you down.  Make darn sure they...

Ok America, how's that for egg in your face!  People like Nancy Grace, now you can SHUT UP!  A jury of Casey Anthony's peers have spoken!
Are we seeing signs of Judicial whiplash?  Did our Judicial system send a strong message to the media for over reporting?  TV news programs like the Nancy Grace Show (who over dramatizes reporting)...

Make Up Your Minds!

What's the problem?  Can't you all get it together?  I really don't understand why you Republicans and Democrats can't seem to govern as you were elected to do.  I am so tired of both parties not being able to make sounds decisions that are in the best interest of our great Nation.  They can't seem to agree on anything!  Ok what's up with the...

What Is Your Vision? What Is Your Dream?

Take a look around us, tell me what do you see?  I'll tell you what I see.  I see everybody, especially me, you know, we that call ourselves go getters, we who are striving to become famous or successful!.  I came to realize that my so called visions/dreams were false. False not because I did not believe in them but false because my visions/dreams were of earthly belief's and reason's.  That's right I said it, because of earthly belief's and reason's! 
I tell you this day, I was chasing dreams that...

Treaty of 1866-Choctaw & Chickasaw Nation (Did U Know They Owned Slaves?) Here is the real story behind the 40 Acres and a Mule.

I could hardly believe this but I have always heard someone talk about 40 Acres and A Mule but never took the time to research it.  I guess I just was not that interested about finding out the truth.  You know most black people believe that no one has given them anything and they had to work extra hard and go above and beyond the normal protocol to receive mere recognition for their efforts.  Well I did a little research about this topic and you would be amazed to read what I found out...

A Black's Post-Civil War Poem

We ain't what we oughta be;

We ain't what we wanna be;

We ain't what we gonna be;

But thank God,

We ain't what we use to be!

My Life, My Choice

My life my choice, is the difference between here and anywhere!  Realizing that dreams do come true goes without saying.  Someone forgot to tell me about the hard work it takes to bring it all around full circle into existence.  Hard work = time and money. Entrepreneurship is the way to go if you like working for yourself, at least it is for me.

Now,  if you have the money to pay for other services to further your cause, pay it!  It will save you precious time later on down the road plus it will free you up to focus on more important business.

When I created Shamel Records... I did so with one thing in mind, produce good music and pay each artist handsomely for their long hours, dedication to the craft, road work applied, their sweat, tears and time.

I am self made and self promoted through Christ our Lord.  God bless and thanks for dropping in.
