Remembering Our Legends: Chuck Brown and Donna Summer

Music fans across the globe–not to mention the entire Soul Train family–were heartbroken to learn that the “Godfather of Go-Go” Chuck Brown passed away yesterday, Weds., May 16, 2012.  Just minutes ago we received word that disco queen and vocalist extraordinaire Donna Summer died today, Thursday, May 17, 2012.

In just a few short months, 2012 has taken from us some of the most influential figures in music and popular culture.  Once again, all of us at mourn the loss of these two legendary artists as we celebrate their life’s work and legacy.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the families, friends, loved ones, and fans of Chuck Brown and Donna Summer.

    In Loving Memory of
    Whitney “Elizabeth” Houston
    “Because You Love Me”
    Standards of Conduct Challenge

    Because you love me and because I love myself, I hereby solemnly swear before my GOD, my family, my closest friends, fans and the professions for which I have a contractual obligation to, that I will uphold the following standards of conduct as a condition of my employment while employed with and for those over me. Because you love me and because I love myself, I will maintain the highest levels of personal and professional integrity by setting the example through righteous living both in the public’s view and in my own private life. I will not bring shame to my GOD, my family, my friends, my fans and employer by indulging in the abusive, dangerous, reckless and unhealthy pleasures of the craving flesh.

    If I am exhibiting those behaviors, I will cease that behavior immediately and be the caring and loving child, parent, artist and person my GOD, family, friends and fans expect me to be and for which they can be proud of. I will not abuse or consume harmful and additive drugs and chemicals substances legal or illegal into my body nor will I offer them to those around me. I will only surround myself with those who truly care and love me and I will separate myself from those who would harm and enable me to self destruct. If I am in trouble, I will seek the recommendations and accept the professional help that I need without repercussions because you love me and I love myself so help me GOD.
