Guru Out of Coma & On The Path of Recovery

Keith “Guru” Elam of the legendary hip hop duo Gangstarr, has awakened from coma and is said to be doing well. Unfortunately, the general public has been unaware of his progress due to the public battle between his family and Solar. While his state of health is still in question, he has been diagnosed with anoxia.

The term anoxia means a total decrease in the level of oxygen, an extreme form of hypoxia or “low oxygen”. Via Wikipedia.com

Guru has a long history of asthma and breathing problems which contributed to his cardiac arrest back in February. All we can do is wish for his health to continue to improve so he can straighten out this mess with his family and Solar.

Angelique Kidjo Collaborates with Peter Buffett to Support GirlsinAfrica

Emmy-award winning musician and philanthropist Peter Buffett has teamed up with UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and Grammy award-winning musician Angelique Kidjo to release “A Song For Everyone” . 100% of proceeds from the sale of the song will benefit the Batonga Foundation, an organization founded by Angelique to advance education for girls in Africa.

Every cent helps: 2 downloads buys a girl a math set; 3 downloads buys a girl lunch during the school day; 5 downloads buys a girl a textbook; 10 downloads buys a girl a school bag or uniform; and 1,000 downloads pays school fees for an entire classroom of 45 girls to go to school for a year!

The Batonga Foundation gives girls a secondary school and higher education so they can take leadership roles in Africa. They are doing this by granting scholarships, building secondary schools, increasing enrollment, improving teaching standards, providing school supplies, supporting mentor programs, exploring alternative education models, and advocating for community awareness of the value of education for girls by addressing gender prejudice. To donate to the foundation, please visit www.batongafoundation.org/donate
