Poseletso – Madiba, We Love You

MP3 of this Madiba Tribute song is available to download exclusively from RhythmMusicStore.com.

The SONG:

This song was originally composed to celebrate MADIBA’s 90th birthday.

Subsequently,  it was developed into a simple anthem of celebration …

POSELETSO is a stunning young South African lady, who dazzled IDOLS views with her stunning vocals.

Her interpretation of the lyric is calm and understated – yet inspirational …

“MADIBA’ is a simple song for a giant of mankind.

The VIDEO :

The video was made as a collective effort by students at Cape Town’s CITY VARSITY. It was made on a minimal budget – making maximum use of the student’s creativity.

As such, a beautiful, simple and organic feel was achieved – in keeping with the humility of Nelson Mandela.

‘Madiba’ was composed by Patric van Blerk, Natasha Simone & Paul Petersen – and produced by Keith de Kock & Storm FX @ CapeTown Sound in Woodstock.

The song is published by CapeTown Sound / KOHCO.

“Upload and leave” websites are no longer an option

In today’s fast-changing online world, it is no longer a viable option to build a website and just leave it, and hope that people will be searching for you and / or your product and services.

You need to be actively telling people about your business, your music, your services, whatever it is that you offer that makes you unique and special.

Blogging is a wonderful way to do this. With WordPress.com, blogging can be as easy as sending an email (yes, really), and what you blog about can automatically appear on your website, and on your Facebook profile.

And the real power of Twitter is not how many followers you can get (come on, who really reads all those tweets anyway?), but that you can embed your Tweet feed into your website, your MySpace page and your Facebook profile.

Your web presence can be dynamic and engaging without paying dynamic (i.e. expensive) web hosting fees, and no need to develop fancy Content Management Systems. And even more importantly, it doesn’t matter if you don’t understand all the technology.

Online marketing is about marketing (hence the name) and technology just provides the tools. Imagine if you had to be an mechanical engineer to drive a car. The same with the internet. Cyberspace is not a private place  for a select few. Anyone can harness the power of the many opportunities that exist. As they said at the Netprophet conference, the internet allows ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

It just takes patience and perseverance.

You can do everything yourself, but if you would prefer to spend your time doing what you do best, like showing overseas visitors the beauty of Cape Town, or being on stage playing your heart out, or walking down a ramp in the latest fashions, then let me help you embrace the future.

Cape Town Panorama

Posted by Duck’s Back Touring, 7 July 2009

To those of you who live in Cape Town, enjoy the view. To those who are leaving Cape Town, take the view along. To those who have left Cape Town, break your hearts. To those who have not been to Cape Town, see what you are missing of God’s grand creation….. It may be the Cape of Storms, but wow, the days we’ve had inbetween are so glorious!
