Tony T

The Urban Buzz sends heartfelt condolences to all who have lost love ones to the terrible Covid-19 Global Pandemic.

Closer to home, we are heartbroken at the loss of our dear friend, colleague and brother Rick Nuhn, on the passing of his brother Tony Trujillo who died from the coronavirus on Friday, May 22nd.

Rick and I have been friends for more than 35 years and during that time our families have grown very close. Losing Tony is devastating. He was a gentle, sweet man who always met me with a hug and a smile. Tony will truly be missed. We have lost our brother. Love and blessings to Rick, mother Rosa and daughter Daryl. May our little brother Tony Rest in Peace!

Motown Records launched The ABC Initiative – a multi-faceted campaign focused on helping communities navigate the fundamentals of life in these unusual times by supporting food programs and gifting 25 minority-owned businesses with $800 “heritage grants” to help support their operations. It was in 1959 that Berry Gordy secured an $800 loan that enabled him to found Motown Records.

As part of the initiative, Motown will fund 100,000 meals for families and individuals in need via a donation made to Feeding America, and via a donation to #HashtagLunchbag, Motown will subsidize 2,800 meals for children in need living in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

The hashtag #MotownABCs reflects how living life under quarantine has forced people to get back to basics. Over a 13-week period, the label will unveil compelling social media content to entertain, inform, and inspire Motown’s followers. Tied to the alphabet, topics will include everything from Action, Fake News, and Jobs to Nurses, Side Hustles, and Xenophobia. Additionally, fans can Quarantine with QC (Quality Control Music), download custom coloring page printables, and more.

Ethiopia Habtemariam, President of Motown Records and Executive Vice President of Capitol Music Group, says, “Motown is a label that was birthed in community and has always led by example. #MotownABCs will uplift our artists and their work, other creators, Black and Brown-owned businesses, and various non-profit relief efforts. At the heart of this campaign is what is at the very heart of our label: being an unfaltering pillar of strength for our community in times of levity and in times of crisis.”

The Associated Press reports that based on available state and local data, about a third of US Covid-19 fatalities are of African Americans — although in the areas analyzed, only about 14 percent of the population was African American. An immediate effect of COVID-19 is PTSD. Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health condition that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, such as a natural disaster, like a pandemic. For people with PTSD, having lived through such extreme circumstances can lead to a wide range of symptoms including depression, anxiety, sleep, and concentration issues. Karen Taylor Bass, (http://karentaylorbass.com) certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) shares, “People of color are suffering the most from the pandemic. Yoga connects the mind, body, and soul. I have been offering my brand of soulful yoga at no cost to frontline workers and at a reduced rate for others. My community is predisposed to everything, and the pandemic has only made our health and wellness more compromise. If I can provide one hour, few minutes of relaxation via meditation, laughter, and yoga to communities on the front-line via Zoom, Skype, and Google Classroom then that is what I will do.”

International Yoga Day is June 21 and Karen will be partnering with Black Yoga teachers to offer her special complimentary “Soulful Yoga” classes that include meditation, panels, mental health awareness check-in, and virtual marketplace for small business owners. Celebrity Carla Hall, chef, author, and TV personality recently raved about Karen’s Soulful Yoga class and said, “In a word, amazing.”

“Soulful Yoga,” is dedicated to self-care and self-love. Learning to put self-first for preservation. I like to call it a healing yoga party with music. Musical selections vary from jazz, reggae, rhythm and blues, gospel, blue-eyed soul, hip hop, popular music, and more. Soulful Yoga offers a deeper connection to tap into trauma, stress, pain, joy, and love with easy yoga movement and affirmations from the diaspora (India, Africa, Caribbean) with a splash of western influence.”
