People are still talking about Hologram Tupac two weeks later. Who is Hologram Tupac? Well, for those of you that don’t know, it’s a digital hologram of the late rapper Tupac Shakur who was murdered 16 years ago at the age of 25 in Las Vegas. His murder is still unsolved.
Hologram Tupac made his debut at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California Sunday April 15, 2012, and simultaneously freaked out, surprised, and entertained thousands of people during a set with fellow rap artist Snoop Dogg. The appearance of Hologram Tupac was the idea of producer/rapper Dr. Dre. He was given the okay to use the image of Tupac Shakur by Tupac’s Mother Afeni Shakur, who was said to be thrilled with the performance. The use of Tupac’s image in this way has stirred up a lot of moral debate about using holographic technology to digitally “resurrect” a long deceased artist.
We are all so blessed. We have been given a gift that none of us deserves. Yet Jesus laid down His life for us anyway. All who choose to follow Him now have Eternal Life. Through Jesus we have been reconciled to God. He didn’t have to do what He did for us but He did it because He loves us. How amazing is that. Jesus died to pay for our sins so that we could be free from them. He freed us from the bondages of sin and death. We have been made new through Christ. It’s almost too much to comprehend.
Today we have lost and icon and pioneer. Don Cornelius died today from a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head. He was 75 years old. I can’t believe that Don Cornelius is dead. The fact that he left us so tragically makes the loss even worse. I hate knowing that his suffering, whether mental, physical or both, was so great that he felt the need to take his own life; that he didn’t see another way out. It is all so sad.
Don has contributed so much to entertainment, and not only black culture, but pop culture. He opened the door for black artists by giving them a place where they could belong and share their gifts with the world, and he created where young African-Americans could come dance and have a great time. He made being black Continue reading →
It’s terrible when you lose someone you love. There is no pain like it. The loss of those closest to us is always so devastating. The pain feels never ending. You feel like a part of yourself has left and it hurts. Especially when the loss is sudden and tragic. Maybe you’re grieving for yourself. Perhaps God is calling you home and you’re sad and afraid. Death is always hard. It is never easy.
Gilani Taylor passed away about 5 hours ago at about 6:00 PM or 6:30 PM Pacific Time October 21, 2011 Friday. She is now with Jesus and her baby girl Jayla. Please pray for her husband Rodney and her surviving daughter Amiya, also known as Mimi, who was not in the car that fateful and tragic day, as well as their son Milan. Please don’t ever forget Gilani. Continue to pray that the person that has killed Gilani and Jayla will be caught, so that he or she can pay the price for what they’ve done and go to jail.
The person was driving a white, 2000’s model SUV on the 101 Freeway under the Las Virgenes Overpass October 1, 2011 Saturday at around 8:32 AM. If you know ANYTHING please report it to the CHP at 818-240-8200. Thank you! God bless you!
Quick update! Gilani’s condition is very bad. The doctors have said that there isn’t much more that they can do. It is completely in God’s hands. Gilani’s Pastor posted on his Twitter page this message today Friday October 21, 2011 at 3:00 PM “Doctors have now put Sister Lani’s life in God’s Hands. I’m SO glad that she did the same thing 2 and a half yrs ago! PRAY! MIRACLE TIME” So please continue to pray with all you’ve got! Keep lifting Gilani in prayer. Thank you and God bless you!

It’s been over two weeks and Gilani Taylor is still alive! Fighting for her life? Yes. Still Critical? Yes, and she will for some time. But she is still alive. The doctors didn’t think she’d live for two days. Yet, she’s still here. God is so good! But Gilani is still not out of the woods. Her condition has worsened so your prayers are still needed. Gilani went into Cardiopulmonary arrest also known as cardiac arrest on October 17, 2011. Her Pastor held an all night Shut In prayer service to pray for her last night October 18, 2011. Anyone could come and pray. So the situation is even more serious. I do not know if she is still in a medically induced coma. But if so, then she is still unaware of the death of Jayla. Please continue to hold her up. I don’t know what her condition is right now. Getting updates is difficult. But as soon as I know of any changes, either good or bad, I will let you know.
