I have released a track to raise awareness of CFS/ME which should be available within the next day or so .
the song is written by myself, but I researched this track and the words via people on the internet that actually suffer from this disease. proceeds of the song will go to organisations that devote their lives to raising awareness and finding a cure.
As to who receives the money "Proceeds" is purely my choice and I am in negotiations on that.
I am so very shocked about certain things that have happened during this project and I feel that I should now make this very public. I am not one for getting into arguments and jealousy battles but I have had news very recently from a kind member of the public that received an email about this song, I dont know the person but I do thank her for bringing this to my attention.
This is how Low people will go when jealousy kicks in and control is taken from them. I would never normally name people but I feel you should all be aware of this and it saddens me to come down to their level. SUS CUE-SAGMAN, PAMELA BLACK, TRACY SPARROW, and a few others in this Gang are emailing people saying that I stole this song from someone else ! "I have 8 albums out of all my own original writing so why would I want to do that! I have admitted that I had to research this song to get the words, and that was done by talking to people on the internet, and when I wrote the songs words it was adjusted with some help to make the words politically correct. the Actual song was written over 2 years ago by me titled "Chained" and I have also used some of the words from that song in MISUNDERSTOOD, so I would be very happy to walk into a court of Law with all the documents, "EMAILS" and recorded conversations and everything a singer songwriter needs to prove ownership of a song. I really can not believe this brutal act on behalf of these people as it was Sus Cue-Sagman that was the person who asked me to do this project and I willingly accepted the challenge. The above mentioned have taken it upon themselves to make me look bad and the reason for this is because I worked out that greed was the motive behind them wanting me to do this song, they were looking to take a large cut of the money raised and I took control away from them so that this didnt happen.
so if you have received an email about this subject then believe me these people are only doing this because they cant get their hands on the money so in theory what these people are trying to do is stop YOU having a song because they can not say to people that they are part of it anymore, its sad and pathetic but also true. I can not believe that people would be so evil especially when this song is for
the public to raise awareness of CFS/ME
May I also please point out that I am no longer associated with CUE ENTERTAINMENT "Sus Cue-Sagman" on this project. its sad that I have to say that but, Cue Entertainment was keeping me in the dark on matters that were of importance to the public and to me which forced me to have to take control of this song and its intensions. which in return has also caused a hate campaign against me and as many obstacles thrown at me as possible to stop me releasing this song for you. Its very sad that Cue Entertainment are the culprits behind this campaign but it all stems from that area and their associations. so all have been blocked from my accounts now.
As some of you will know, I was planning a video for this song and asked the people that this track was written for with their permission to use photographs to help make a huge impact on the song, I had an enormous response to this request but as the matter was taken out of management control, they stamped back by scaring people that they could be sued for allowing this. "this is true if I used the pictures without permission but I asked for permission and would have also added at the end of the video "photos by .... with their kind permission" in that way everyone would have been covered.
its so very sad that all this is due to a power struggle and recognition, I am just here as a musician/ songwriter to help in what ever way I can large or small. I have given up 90% of the royalties for this song so you can clearly see that this is not a greed part on my behalf to make money out of anyone. However, There was one company "non profit making" that was invited to have a part of the proceeds as a gift that became greedy and was taken out of the proceeds pot by myself because of this selfish and greedy action "a gift is a gift no matter how big or small" again I stand by my rights as the song owner to choose who will benefit from the sales. << this is not slander as I have it documented>> but I have chosen not to name the company at present.
This song has been an emotional rollercoaster for me in many ways, firstly by the lovely people I have met from the start of this project and how they manage day to day life and try not to burden anyone with what they have holding their lives back.you have all touched my heart, Secondly for the HUGE support you have all shown for me ever since I started writing this track. & Thirdly for all the pulling, pushing, bullying and shoving in many directions to gain power and recognition over this song.
I did this track because I was asked to do this for the people. so I did what I was asked.
I am not involved, neither do I care to be involved with the politics, and power struggles.
I just want to finish my job as a musician/ writer/ singer and let the public have the song and the people that suffer have their song. It's not about me or fame etc its about doing what I thought was right.
and I have done that, I ignored the ones trying to control this once I realised what they were actually trying to do. If people want to hate me for taking their power away then so be it. But please dont ever say Im a bad person or imply anything like that. I am still here finishing what was started because I believe in the people that have this disease and I am trying hard for them to be heard.
MISUNDERSTOOD is a song about CFS/ME to the people with this illness you will relate to the words I have carefully chosen. to people that do not know about it I am hoping you listen to the song and then please read up about it, because I know and I am sure that anyone with the illness will back me up on this you would not want to get this illness yourself and go through what they go through. and it can happen to anyone at any time.
I am proud of this song, and proud to be a messenger for you.

A Worldwide Epidemic
AIDS is an international problem; over the years, both private donations and government grants have been allocated to help study and try to solve the mystery of AIDS.
For thirty years, AIDS has been killing men, women and children. It is an indiscriminate Grim Reaper. Since the recognition of AIDS, many people have donated their time and money to help in the fight against AIDS.
When I (Angie Bowie) first moved to Atlanta, it was after a trip there for Jimmy Lovell to open the Gay center and to do poetry readings to a group of ardent activist gay men and women looking and finding their place in Atlanta society. Later the volunteering was for Meals on Wheels for AIDS patients and shows that targeted either sick friends or specific AIDS services that were under-funded.
