Peace Process Album Fundraiser

$793 of $5,000 goal

Greetings Friends and Family!  

I’m tremendously grateful for your support over the years.  In case you haven’t noticed, it’s been a while since I’ve released a complete album and/or video.  And, the release of my Peace Process Album has been delayed.  

I’ve had a total of four singles from the Peace Process album released online - ‘Suspicious,’ ‘I am Shem,’ ‘Blessed,’ and ‘King Queen Riddim’ - which have received great response and reviews from both fans and media.  

By Yah’s grace - and with help from many of my fans, friends, and family - my previous fundraiser on PledgeMusic allowed me to raise PART of the funds toward my album Peace Process (a total of $1,500 of the $10,000 needed), which helped me finish the first couple of singles from the album (‘I am Shem,’ and ‘Suspicious’).  

Since that time, I’ve been moving at a snail’s pace, investing my own money and working with my small team to complete the album.  Although it’s taken longer than expected, the good news is, I have now been able to finish 80% of the songs for the Peace Process Album (these 2 singles, plus 6 more), as follows:  


Suspicious*
I am Shem*
Blessed*
King/Queen Riddim*
Heal the Earth
Love Grows
Hoo Yahvo
Teach Dem

That leaves me with this dilemma - I still have 3 crucial songs to complete in order to release the album:

1) Lay Down Your Guns (with original music)
2) Black and Lovely (Heartbeat riddim)
3) Holy Mount Zion (Road riddim)

Your generous contribution to this album fundraiser will allow me to do the following in record time:


*Finish recording, mixing, mastering the remaining 3 songs on the *Peace Process album ($2,000)
*Take a professional photo shoot for album and related press ($500)
*Complete the album cover design ($500)
*Secure disc manufacturing ($1,200)
*Purchase a semi-pro video camera to record more music videos like the ‘Yah Yireh’ video, which has almost 200,000 views on youtube. ($600)

[Previously released bonus tracks to be included on the album are: Happy is He (remix), Bless Africa, Dem Dey Children, Babylon Food, Yah Yireh]

Help me bring more healing music to the world by making a contribution to this album fundraiser today.  

Campaign ending date:   June 30, 2018

Album Release Date:   September 30, 2018

**All contributors of $20 or more, will receive a free copy of the album upon release.  
**All donors of $100 or more will receive a signed copy of the Peace Process Album and a t-shirt.  
**All donors of $1,000 or more will get all the above, their names on the CD, and an acoustic video recording of the song of their choice and/or a chance to have a cameo spot in one of the album video shoots.  

Please include your email address so I can contact you upon release of the album.

Let’s spread peace, love, and healing together!  


Thank you again for your prayers and support of Yah music!


Sincerely,



Queen Makedah

Greetings Friends and Family!

Here's a sneak peak at the album cover art for the Peace Process Album.

I know this has been long coming, and I am doing all I can to make sure you'll find it worth the wait.

I am finishing up final edits on the text of the cover today, for the graphic artist.

In December, by the grace of El Hai, I will be recording the final 2 tracks for the album - 'Lay Down your Guns Remix' and 'Holy Mt. Zion.' In January, mixing and mastering has to be done, then the manufacturing.

By the grace of El Shaddai, the new and final release date is February 28, 2019.

Contributions are still appreciated and being accepted.

May Yah Bless You and Yours!

I have recently relocated and didn't know how it was going to happen, but Yah always provides - and surpasses my expectations! Excited to be working with this very kind person, family man, and exceptionally talented engineer/producer - Luther Wilson of LWMC Studios in the KC area - for the remainder of the project! His works have been grammy nominated!

Greetings Friends and Family!

Here is a picture from a recent photo shoot. Your contributions helped make this photo shoot possible, and from it Yah blessed with a perfect shot for the album cover and back. You'll get the first peek once it's graphically designed.

Bless up!
