Tell us a little about your background...
Valen Rhodes began singing at the age of three inspired first by her mother who loved music and sang gospel hymns and classics to Valen and her siblings. In her early teen years, Valen started entering in local talent contests and winning first place.

When Valen was 16, on a dare she sent a demo of her singing to Geffen Records in Los Angeles. After a few weeks Valen decided to call Geffen Records; it was Dec. 25, Christmas Day--no one calls a record company on Christmas Day! But, being new to the business, Valen did and as fate would have it, Mr. Geffen himself was expecting an important call and had his calls routed directly to his home. When Valen inquired about her demo, Mr. Geffen actually knew about it. This meant a lot in itself considering the amount of demos he probably listened to daily, and he was nice enough to actually give his critique of the demo.(Of course, that was back in the day when record labels were more open.) Well, at 16, Valen's vocal style was still emerging; and while Valen wasn't signed to Geffen Records, Mr. Geffen was gracious enough to suggest more development of her vocal style. Now that's a great story!!

Valen's vocal interpretation is a mixture of the old and the new styles of Jazz and Popular music, however, with her own unique flavor. Imagine if the vocal sensitivity of an Barbara Streisand-like vocal were intertwined with a smooth Carmen McRae nuance, that's the best way to describe the vocal delivery of Valen's song "Cherish." It could be the birth of a classic from this southern USA songbird hailing from the same hometown as the great John Birks Gillespie, " Dizzy Gillespie ".

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Buster Williams
