Sonny Robertson, Blues Singer from St. Louis and Sanford Schimel, Opera Singer from NYC were recent guests on the Judy Joy Jones Show.
When you hear this man singing the blues, his voice shrieks, cries, moans, groans, opening the listener’s hearts and all our old wounds, allowing us to feel, bleed and finally to heal.
Sonny’s voice is the world’s soul turned inside out; black, blue and blood red. No way you’re gonna walk away the same person after hearing Sonny pouring out those blues!
His music says life is sad, hard, and can be sheer hell but whoever said that getting to the good stuff would be easy?
Robertson doesn’t sugar-coat life; he just sings THE HELL OUTTA IT! Every now and then you meet someone so at home in their own skin; all of a sudden you are feeling pretty good about your own self.
‘AS IS’ …SONNY ROBERTSON, Blues Singer.
And Sanford Schimel who studied Voice at Chicago Musical College & sang with The Light Opera Works and Chicago Gilbert & Sullivan Society told us that his beloved Mother died only three days before the show.
Mr. Schimel also shared that he is a recovering addict & has been HIV+ since 1994. He recently started singing again after 23 year hiatus! His voice is beautiful and will now be enjoyed by audiences around the world oncemore.
Because of HIV medications; he has feeding tubes for both water and food and all I can say is if you want to open your heart, soul, mind and spirit to letting yourself really feel; listen to the shows archives. And better have your hankie close by! I never cry during the shows, but during this one, I never stopped.
Thank-you Mr. Sonny Robertson and Sanford Schimel for allowing the audience, including the host to see the rainbow colors of your lives that have made you who you are, extremely talented souls who continue to share despite life’s hardships because you both know that blood is life until given, then it is love!

Vincent Van Gogh appeared to the people around him; a complete loser. Yet if you read his letters to his brother Theo; Vincent predicted almost to the day exactly how long he would live as a painter. Knowing his calling; and sparing his body nothing; he lived his life as a saint-giving every second of his short eight years as a painter to his calling!
Were we able to ‘see ahead’ very often the person who is ‘dead to the world’ during their lives; will one day in time, be a household name! Poet Emily Dickinson never left her home and yet is one of the most well-known poets upon this earth. Painter Frida Kahlo; married to muralist Diego Rivera sold only two paintings during her life. Now other planets will be named after Ms. Kahlo.
We are all destined to be stars at some moment in time; so enjoy the dance!

Monday; February 16th @ 4:00 pm PST; 7:00 pm EST
Arun Gandhi’s childhood days under South Africa’s apartheid for someone of Indian heritage was considerably difficult, humiliating, and often violently abusive. Like many Indians, he was demeaned by Europeans for not being white, and ostracized by Africans for not being black, and subject to racially-motivated violence from extremists in both groups. This led to a series of resentful and angry teenage years. While living with his grandfather; Mahatma Gandhi from 1946 until his assassination in 1948, Arun experienced the most tumultuous period in India’s struggle to free itself from British rule. Both the events and Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings strongly influenced Arun. When Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948, Arun felt such anger that he wanted to take revenge upon the assassin. Then he remembered his grandfather’s words: “Never react immediately in anger”. Called a messenger of peace, Arun Gandhi; Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson, has dedicated his life to spreading his grandfather’s teachings around the globe. Christina Blodgett, Director of Customer Relations for Blogtalkradio is our Special Co-host.
