Yayee Kenna!!! Rock on bro! Kenna is a Grammy nominated artist,  born in Ethiopia! Kenna Zemedkun [his last name – for real he is African with that surname (smile)]’s track “Say Goodbye To Love” was nominated for Best Urban/Alternative Performance in the 2009 Grammy’s!

You see this immaculate mountain? Imagine climbing this mountain through fierce stinging wind piercing your skin and snowy weather to freeze your fingers and toes?  Now imagine climbing it for a cause.  A cause worth to climb for many days or weeks for a mother, father, child, grandparents for clean water.


Having nowhere to go, but up in January 2010, four fantastic entertainers,Africa’s own, Kenna, Jessica Biel, Lupe Fiasco and Isabel Lucas will be climbing Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, at more than 19,331 feet–to raise awareness for clean water worldwide.

The clean water awareness was started by recording artist and singer/producer by Kenna.   Unfortunately, “his father suffered from waterborne diseases as a child in Ethiopia.”   The Summit team consisting of the celebrities above are willing to risk their lives to bring attention to this global issue: “Over a billion people worldwide are suffering without clean drinking water.”

The climb begins in January, with a countdown on the official site ticking down the roughly 25 days until the team begins its ascent.

We can ALL start doing our part by simply clicking the link below to visit the climb’s official website and donate.  By donatin 1 dollar - a DOLLAR – provides 1,000 liters of clean safe drinking water for 50 days of healthy living.  So…what are YOU waiting for?!

So sad this…After nearly three rocky years, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have broken up. This according to Us Weekly magazine in its latest issue (on newsstands now).
