Offer Nissim Feat. Maya - Alone (Original Mix) by Maya Simantov

When I was a kid, many years ago :-) - I was told by some Filipino family members that “I need to be prepared because this upcoming year, is going to be a special year”

I asked what I needed to be prepared and why it would be special. I was told I need to have an action plan, have money in my pocket, be around people I love and care about at midnight and not to go shopping, fight or do anything stupid during the entire day of the 1st.

It appeared to me that this was more like common sense. Anyway, I was told that whomever you’re with at midnight, is/are the people you will need or turn to most throughout the year. So I should be with someone or a group of people I know I can count on. The money in my pocket was to ensure I always had funds throughout the year, not to go out shopping because I’d be blowing money all year, not to fight or argue as I’d be doing that all year, etc…

I’ve lived by the rules of this New Year superstition for years and when I swayed from it in 2009, things got rough- very rough… Does anyone else believe in this?

Regardless of what you believe, every year on this earth is special. Treat others as you’d like to be treated. Recognize the value of time and how valuable life is. Surround yourself with people that are stronger where you may fall weak. Life is short, live it to the fullest extent, while making choices towards securing your future. I wish all of you a safe, SPECIAL, and Happy New Year.

Thank you for allowing me to be part of your life.

“Sand falls through the hourglass and I can’t stay the same.”
– Martha Wash, lyrics from her new single, “Destiny”

Thirty years after proclaiming “It’s Raining Men!” Martha Wash is still going strong. In a career that has spanned nearly four decades, Martha’s voice can be heard singing some of the biggest hits in dance music, including the chart-topping “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” and the inspirational “Carry On.” However, as Wash once put it, “Unless you are a die-hard fan, you wouldn’t know who I was.” Now, The Queen of Clubland is reclaiming her legacy. After earning eight #1 hits and an additional eight Top 10s on various Billboard Charts, she is releasing Something Good, her first collection of all new material in almost 20 years.

In an age where artists come and go, Wash is a proven survivor. Along with Izora Armstead, she began singing background for Sylvester under the name Two Tons O’ Fun. Together, their dynamic, soulful voices can be heard on his signature song, “You Make Me Feel Mighty Real.” Eventually Wash and Armstead released their own recordings, including three Top 5 Billboard dance singles, “I Got the Feeling,” “Earth Can Be Just Like Heaven” and “Just Us.”

In 1982 the duo announced, “Hi, we’re your weather girls and have we got news for you!” Within the blink of an eye, Two Tons O’ Fun became The Weather Girls and “It’s Raining Men” went on to receive a Grammy nomination, an achievement Wash considers the most memorable moment in her career.

Although she’s recorded several ballads, including her #1 R&B duet with Luther Vandross, “I Who Have Nothing,” Wash has been labeled a dance artist. Proving she is much more, Something Good finds the songstress taking chances and singing skillfully crafted pop/adult contemporary songs. The first single is the beautiful ballad “I’ve Got You.” Written by Rony Goffer and Zach Adam, winner of the Billboard Songwriting Contest Pop Award, it’s a song Wash says speaks to everyone.

From the opening lines of the collection’s title song, also written by Adam, Wash reveals to her listeners that a fire has once again ignited inside her. She sings: “I’m feeling something. It’s been a long time, since I’ve felt something was burning inside. You’ve got me thinking I’ve been missing out.” The song drives with pulsating rhythms and Wash’s big, but never over-powering voice soars through to its conclusion. You can’t help but be convinced that she has been dreaming to deliver these kinds of songs for quite some time. It’s only fitting that she would remake the Aerosmith classic, “Dream On” for Something Good.

“It’s My Time,” the second single, was written by Swedish singer/songwriter, Helena Johansson. The lyrics embody the courage and perseverance Wash has become known for: “It’s my time to shine. It’s my time. Keep on walking your own path. Never let anyone hold you back. When you feel like giving in, you get right up and try again and again.”
Wash has done that time and time again.

In 1991 Wash proved her strength and became a pioneer for artists when she sang the lead vocals on C&C Music Factory’s #1 hit, “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now.)” However, in the accompanying music video, her vocals came out of the group’s lead singer’s mouth because her image had been deemed unmarketable due to her size. Furthermore, she also failed to receive proper credit and compensation on vocals she did for Black Box’s album, including their Top 10 songs, “Everybody Everybody” and “Strike It Up, and Seduction’s “You’re My One and Only (True Love.)” Where others may have backed down from this fight, Wash filed a lawsuit and won. Her efforts now make it mandatory for artists to receive accurate credits on albums and music videos.

In spite of difficulties in her career, Wash always maintained a positive outlook. Her new song “Destiny,” which she co-wrote, tells the story of her path. “Letting go was never easy for me. I was holding so tight, but it never felt right. Couldn’t see the person I could be through all this pain.”

Wash hopes the eight songs from Something Good, which she calls empowering, will inspire others to find their strength inside and follow their destiny.

Something Good comes on the heels of the 30th anniversary of “It’s Raining Men.” It seems impossible to comprehend today, but Barbra Streisand, Donna Summer, Cher, and Diana Ross all passed on the iconic song written by Paul Jabara and The Late Show with David Letterman’s Paul Shaffer.

Martha Wash still loves every minute of performing.While her fans revere her the time has come for her to receive the accolades she’s earned from all audiences. The truth is in thehaunting new ballad “Proud” “I’ll make you proud of loving me. You won’t regret that you believed. How did you see what no one else could see in me?”

If you don’t know who Martha Wash is by now, you’re missing out on something good.
Martha Wash’s new album, “Something Good”, will be available on iTunes at the end of the year. For more on Martha Wash, visit
