“Afterglow (A Cappella) feat Armand Hutton” Nominated by HMMA

Featured

Diana “Dilee’s” first released single “Afterglow (A Cappella) feat Armand Hutton” off the album “With Love” was officially nominated by Hollywood Music in Media Awards in Dance genre for the month of September 2017.

PRlog.com:  The Hollywood Music In Media Awards™ (HMMA) recognizes and honors the music of visual mediums (film, TV, movie trailers, video games, commercials, etc.), the talented individuals responsible for creating, producing and placing it and the music of artists, both mainstream and independent, from around the globe. HMMA is also the first music awards event to recognize and honor excellence in music supervision. Iconic artists are presented with Outstanding Career Achievement honors for their accomplishments and longevity in the entertainment field.

Diana “Dilee” Maher is a creative and inspiring storyteller that leads with positivity through her songs and message. Her music continues to bring society together in a vision without hate or jealousy. She is a cross-media artist who began her musical career in the San Diego/Los Angeles, California area. Her mixed lineage (50% broadly Southern European, 50% Southeast Asian including Native American ancestry) fostered a strong desire to bring cultures together in an atmosphere of positivity and spirituality.

Dilee dedicates all of her music “to the Divine.” “Devotion to our Creator, to me, means embracing and giving the magic of kindness to every living thing as a particle of the all,” says Dilee, “and I believe each one of us is inter-connected, which is why my new promotional T-shirts and sweatshirts are emblazoned with ‘The love in you is the same in me’.”

About Dilee:

Dilee’s resume, which includes a Spoken Word album and several single releases garnered her voting member status in NARAS (Grammys®). These releases coupled with two earlier unreleased musical productions with both Ike Turner and Ike Turner Jr. were the beginning of her musical career.

Being a part of the voting process and being a positive role model are responsibilities Dilee takes seriously. She believes in goodness, equality, love, and the belief that we as human beings should strive to touch each other’s lives in a positive way. Her music is one way of bringing the world’s essence together, transcending all cultural and national borders in order to celebrate life.

Diana “Dilee” Featured Article in USA Today Magazine

Featured

USA Today Magazine published this article on spreading love/peace/unity. Dilee was touched by Susan SurfTone‘s brilliant writing and expanding on her Huffington Post article. Credit goes to Shannon Rose HollyWood for getting this published. The article quotes Dilee’s husband Jeffrey and Dilee says “Jeffrey who’s believed in me more than I have believed in myself and it quotes Bill Hare top, front and center thank you ever so much! You are a joy to work with! Heartfelt quote from Armand Hutton my soul brother from another mother thank you I’m so very blessed to have you and Bill on my team with many more songs to come! So appreciate the quote from Joanne Lazzaro on her flutes aiding in her own interpretation of my song “Twist Like a Dragon” co-written by Nel Gerome (he and I wrote all the album songs). Thank you Kori L Carothers for your quote as well you’re such a wonderful person and that means the most to me that everyone I worked with on this album is a good human being first and foremost. Millions have talent but without heart it is meaningless.” The article shines light on the two charities Dilee serves on the Board for and helps out with regularly:  She’s on the Board of Directors for www.drivehope.org and on Advisory Board for www.safepassagelives.org.

It’s Been A While Since I Blogged!

It’s been a while since I blogged. So much going on and hard to keep up with everything. Just thought I’d wish everyone all the beauty and kindness in abundance and more than you give and send out during this holiday season and always! Thought I’d share these kindness quotes I came across and appreciate. I always say “kindness is king!”

“You know what love is?
It is all kindness, generosity.
Disharmony prevails when
You confuse lust with love, while
The distance between the two
Is endless.”

~ Rumi

Roses and Buddha Kindness quote“To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.”

~ Confucius
