Hello From Heaven with Bill Guggenheim

Hello From Heaven

With Co host Jorge E Broche, President of Tactical Group Investigations and believer in the afterlife…

An After Death Communication also known as ADC is a spiritual experience, that occurs when a person is contacted directly and spontaneously by a deceased family member or friend, without  the use of psychics, mediums, rituals, or devices of any kind. It’s estimated that 60-120 million Americans – 20-40% of the population of the United States – have had one or more ADC experiences. Therefore, ADCs provide convincing new evidence for life after death.

Hello From Heaven! documents the firsthand accounts of people who believe they have been contacted by a loved one who has died, otherwise known as ADCs. The Guggenheims interviewed over 2000 people in the United States and Canada and collected over 3000 ADC accounts.

Since the book was wriiten, two new means of communication have been discovered, Mr Guggenheim will tell us about them and how you can be aware of these to use your perception and intuition to receive messages from your deceased loved ones.

El Casino De Los Congos

El Casino De Los Congos For hundreds of years, hundreds of thousands of Africans were sold as slaves to Portugal, Britain, US, Brazil, Spain, and Cuba, as well as other countries. The Portuguese began bringing Africans to Cuba and then the Spaniards followed. By the 1800’s millions of Africans had been sold around the world.

This is the story of Ta Gundo Paredes Moré, son of a King in the Congo. Prince Ta Gundo is captured by slave traders and sold to Ramon Paredes, a plantation owner in Cuba and sold a second time to El Conde de Moré.

The story reveals what appears to be a curse, is only the beginning for what sets the stage for a Cuban musical legend to be born, Benny Moré who is revered to this day as El Bárbaro del Ritmo.  The master of most Cuban popular genres, such as the bolero, son montuno, mambo, and guaracha.

Our guest, his grandson Dr. Roly Moré narrates intimate stories never told before about his family’s history.

 

The Sun Rises on the Truth

The Sun Rises on the Truth

Gina Sosa Suarez, director of “The Sun Rises on the Truth”

In her own words: I embarked on this film journey from a promise to my mother, and my mother to my father, and my father to his Brothers and Sisters in Arms. The opportunity to one day tell their true life stories of what they and their families went through in the darkest period of Cuban History, in their generation. Much has been written, much has been said, yet those who truly fought in the mountains of La Sierra Maestra; have never really spoken their Truth.

This will be one of the many film projects we will embark on. The first must be in honor of The Constitutional Armed Forces of Cuba, the plight and exodus of so many Cubans in 1959 to the date. In their words, or their families!

To begin to heal 58 years of Cuban history, we must start with the men, women and their families who were murdered with no due process, who have been thrown in jail, who have been falsely accused and who lost everything. We will not judge, we will tell a story, to bring justice to light; for everyone deserves to tell their Story.

Benny Moré Cuban Icon and Jon Secada’s Music CD controversy

Bartolomé Maximiliano Moré (24 August 1919 – 19 February 1963), known as Benny Moré, was a Cuban singer, bandleader and songwriter. With his fluid tenor voice he triumphantly won the title of  El Bárbaro del Ritmo, and  El Sonero Mayor. With his grace, Moré eloquently merged musical genres such as the bolero, mambo, cha cha cha, son, guaracha, and son montuno.  Benny was an engenious singer and composer, he is considered one of the most influential musician and popular singer Cuba has ever produced.

Roly More, MD “PhD” his prodigious grandson who lives in the USA pays tribute to his ancestry and  Benny Moré’s Anniversary. 

We will discuss the recent jon secada’s CD release paying tribute to Benny Moré.
