Ambassador for Peace
"The experience of listening to the best jazz tunes with so much fun and networking, is Beautiful!
Abuja awaits this experience!"
"This is absolutely one of the highest levels of professional jazz music for mature and experienced listeners.
It's amazing how those few could put together such awesome music.
You would almost believe an orchestra was behind all that if you weren't watching."
"Let's keep preaching the gospel of peace, this is all we need in Nigeria. We look forward to receiving the artist."
Special thanks to Sponsors of the forthcoming historic Jazz for Peace Abuja Concert:
I AM PEACE!
The world is likened to a conglomerate. Our human diversities present numerous possibilities for misunderstandings and conflicts, in forms imaginable and unimaginable.
Some persons think that peace is elusive. When one considers the level of conflicts within oneself, family, work place, community, country and the world, achieving peace can be dismal.
If we reflect on the effect that small waves make on the surface of water - the ripple effect, we will realize that being an agent of peace can positively effect peace on our families. Our family members then propagate peace and peace spreads.
When we encounter uneasiness, difficulties, anxieties, distress, chaos, violence, contentions and conflict in its inexhaustible ramifications, be encouraged that peace is possible. Believe in yourself and declare that peace begins with ME because I AM PEACE!
