This article may step on a few toes, but this needs to be said… apparently everyone isn’t seeing the bigger picture in this situation. These girls are someones:
daughter, sister, cousin and is MISSING as we speak. Why is this not getting the media attention that it deserves? Every time something like this happens they tend to sweep it under the rug and try to forget it, but this time they can’t do that. This needs to be brought to everyone’s attention, because mother’s can’t keep passing out flyers to find their child. A flyer can only do so much and reach so far without proper media, but in this case most of the media are turning down the story for some odd reason. Now lets say these were white girls I`m pretty sure there would be amber alerts in every state and all over the news interrupting our favorite shows just to inform us. I’m not trying to pull the race card, but let’s be honest this happens all the time.
A few celebrities have spoken out about this situation such as Chaka Khan, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Taraji P. Henson, but we need more of them to speak up about it. We should also call up a community meeting or start a Facebook page about it and go to your local news station and spread the word. These girls matter whether we know it or not and each girl meant something to someone. Imagine, your child is missing and being held hostage at an unknown location. See this from the parents perspective and tell me how you’d feel ? We need to get it together and fast! Every minute were not looking for them these girls are being taken somewhere else and farther away.
So lets get to work and help find our girls.
Currently, 15-year-old Jacqueline Lassey, 13-year-old Yahshaiyah Enoch, 15-year-old Antwan Jordan, 15-year-old Juliana Otero, 15-year-old Dashann Trikia Wallace, 13-year-old Aniya McNeil, 15-year-old Dayanna White, 16-year-old Talisha Coles, and 15-year-old Morgan Richardson are all still missing.Read more

Ever wondered what a film composer does and what their job title consists of? Has your heart ever skipped a beat while sitting at the edge of your seat because of the build-up music suspense? Well I want everyone to meet Matthew Head, an Emmy Award winning film and television Film composer who is the man behind the suspenseful music scenes. He has done some great work with some of your favorite actors, directors and music artists like Goapele, Terri J. Vaughn, Rickey Smiley and a many more to name. Matthew is the creative genius behind the music and is currently working on bigger projects to date. It’s great to work with such a talented individual in the entertainment industry. I have had the opportunity to sit down with Matthew a few times over the phone about what exactly he does and what’s next to come from his work. For the full interview with Matthew read below.
What do you enjoy most about being a film composer?
The art of building the music and emotion around the film. Creating new sounds and feeding off the energy of the film is very enjoyable. It’s not about making music that fits the scene, but adding the emotion that will push the scene to another level.
Who are some notable people that you were stoked about working with in your career thus far?
I usually do not have the privilege of meeting the actors, I only deal with the directors and producers of a project. But with that being said, I’ve had the opportunity to share projects with Actor/director Terri J. Vaughn, singer/songwriter Goapele, comedian Rickey Smiley and others.
Do you feel like you have achieved your ultimate goals in your career or do you feel like you haven’t reached your peak and why?
I don’t think I will ever reach my peak. My goals get bigger and more extravagant each day. I just put my head down work and let everything fall in place. I really don’t think about it, I just take the opportunities, Thank God, and do what I do best.
What are some current projects that you are working with and what networks will be airing it?
I am currently scoring the film The Woman on the Ledge, directed by Trey Haley and starring Rumor Willis. The film will be airing on LIfetime Television in 2017. I just finished scoring the comedy, #DigitalLivesMatter directed by Terri J. Vaughn starring comedian DC Young Fly. There are a few other projects that I can’t really go into detail about. But stay tuned…
How tough has the road been to success for you?
The road hasn’t been tough because I enjoy the journey. I never sought out to be a film composer, so everything has been new and happens so fast. I take every experience as a learning tool and I apply it to my next project. I truly enjoy and love what I do.
What kind of legacy would you like to leave to your loved ones after everything is said and done?
My legacy is based around who I’ve touched and how touched them. It doesn’t have to be music. Music is a love and a gift that I have and I don’t want it to define me as a man, father, husband. etc. I use music as a tool to mentor and teach others. My legacy can be defined by living my dreams and sharing my gift.
What’s some advice you have to the future film and television composers out there in the world in staying focused towards success?
KEEP WORKING!!! Take advantage of ALL opportunities. Always say yes and never try to say No.
