Every once in a while an artist emerges that just touches that perfect place inside, Human is one of those artists. Backed by The Human Revolution, an impressive rotating cast of master musicians, Humanhas been leading the wayfor politically, socially, and ecologically charged performers and songwriters for over a decade. Guests and past members of the lineup have included: Jeff Pevar (Ray Charles, Crosby Stills and Nash, Jazz is Dead), Donny "Divino" Smith (Willie Nelson), Roger Fritz (Sheryl Crow, Shelby Lynn) "Uncle" Don Lopez (Willie Nelson, Willie K), Gene Parsons (The Byrds), David Mayfield (Cadillac Sky, Avett Brothers), Jessica Lea Mayfield, Alice Di Micele, Kailen Yong (Boulder Acoustic Society) and MC Radioactive (Spearhead) to name a few. The Human Revolution boasts an eclectic mix of styles with a definitive foundation in that roots-rock country style of music, we call it Mystic Americana. Songs transition gently from ecstatic dance beats to tearjerker ballads, from modern political rockers to positive roots reggae, carrying the audience on a journey which changes, often with the band, from show to show.

Derrick N. Ashong & Soulfège
Derrick N. Ashong & Soulfège embody the pluralistic vision of a new generation of music makers and socially conscious activists. Leader and co-founder Derrick N. Ashong, a.k.a. DNA, dubbed a "YouTube phenom" by the New York Times, is the former host of The Derrick Ashong Experience on Oprah radio and is a Ghana-born, Oprah-endorsed Harvard graduate. He originally formed Soulfège with college choir mate Jonathan Gramling. Subsequently they created Take Back the Mic, a movement to put meaning back into today's music and to challenge a new generation of youth to find their own voice and take on roles of leadership in society.
Derrick N. Ashong - or DNA as he is sometimes known - is literally the voice of a new generation.
Whether heard in the eloquent expression of his thoughts on Senator Barack Obama (as seen in one of
the most viewed videos of 2008 on YouTube), in his music (as leader of the emerging band Soulfège), in his lyrics (he won Billboard Magazine's 2007 World Song Writing Competition), the Harvard educated talent has found myriad ways to inspire, engage and activate young people with positive messages for social change.

I’m Mali Rowan, Founder of Mali Rowan Presents and PR Lead for ONE: The Event plus Producer and Publicist to individuals and organizations shaping our world for the better. So when I got the call from Firefighter Erik Lawyer about ONE: The Event I knew I had to jump on board. Why? Because not only is the 10th anniversary of 9/11 a monumental opportunity to shift our world, but also Erik's story is an indicator that we are waking up: a self proclaimed regular guy, conservative and skeptical before 9/11, Erik had his world rocked by what he saw ten years ago.
He is betting his life savings that we will come together on behalf of love. And we won't stop there: we will use the technical platform that Earthgrid Web platforms offer to stimulate instant information sharing and global networking like never before.
Every year since September 11, 2001, millions of people remember and watch in anguish and astonishment as we recall the planes that hit the Twin Towers in New York and the FEAR and anguish is felt by the world all over again. It is fed to us by television and repeated to us like some abstracted mantra that whips us back in time and amplifies an emotional response in most everyone. No one seems to stop to question that perhaps we collectively dropped the ball when we allowed our leaders to reciprocate a message of fear, isolation and hate—and on the absurd side of things, to go shopping. What could have been an opportunity to unite became a horrific platform for an even deeper chasm of fear, isolation, judgment and hate.
As a Global American citizen I believe that ONE The Event holds the promise of actually making a difference in the world as a unitive force of individuals, communities, networks, professionals, and creative social artists and architects from all over the globe come together in one very simple but profound intention: to shift our world from fear to love. At 3:46 pm PDT on 9/11 we will unite in a GLOBAL SYNCHRONIZED MOMENT OF LOVE, LIVE VIA WEBCAST FROM SEATTLE CENTER/MEMORIAL STADIUM. We will also be hosting a SOLUTIONS SUMMIT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON Friday, September 9th and Saturday September 10th. More info and itinerary for all free events at www.onetheevent.org
Why should you care about 9-11?
What we stand for is to 'shift' our attention away from the FEAR and pain that we all experience every year, to LOVE and compassion. And beyond that, to maximize our capacity together en masse harnessing the power of our attention and intention. Please help us spread the word about this monumental event founded by Seattle Firefighter Erik Lawyer, who saw the aftermath at Ground Zero and who attended dozens of FDNY funerals. His world was rocked and now he's betting his life savings that we as humanity will harness this moment together.
