ALAMAZE POSTS NEW BLOG @ MYSPACE
Soul siren Tori Alamaze posted the following message on her official MySpace profile: - "Most people don't know but last month, Dec. 12, 2007 I gave birth to my son Issa Ausar Jahi Jones. Although my son was born with an incredibly strong heartbeat, he never took a breath. Needless to say, he chose to stay in the spirit world. He otherwise would have been my first born child! I even performed at 4 mos. pregnant in the video featured on my page! That night I was so excited to be performing with my son tucked safely inside of me! I felt amazingly sexy, bold, and beautiful all at the same time! I'm writing this to let the people know that I haven't ignored you and that I am STILL here. I am simply preparing myself for the great things that are on their way in 08! While we are dealing with the loss of our son and some days are more manageable than others, I am grateful to be moving towards a place of greater understanding, patience, and love. I will be gracing stages across the world as soon as Feb. 14 coming up next month! God knows how much I dream of holding my son, kissing, smelling, and just loving up on em'. God knows how much my heart aches... So when u see me, a hug will do. I'm not broken, my heart is just healing."
