Song of the Week - Livin' in a World They didn't Make - Janet Jackson


"Livin' in a World They Didn't Make" by Janet Jackson comes from her 1989 album "Rhythm Nation 1814"




Children are called the future of an adult world
They are born with spirits so innocent
Til we teach them how to hate.


Add to the world's confusion
We teach our kids rules
That we don't adhere to ourselves
Right or wrong
What example can they take


The people we learn from
Forge the adults we become

Living in a world they didn't make
Living in a world that's filled with hate
Living in a world where grown-ups break the rules
Living in a world they didn't make
Paying for a lot of adult mistakes
How much of this madness can they take
Our children

Children grow to become our young adults
Problems of the world
They must learn how to confront
Doing drugs, joining gangs to rebel
Colors show they belong
To the social override
Cause they're living in a space
They feel out of place

Living in a world they didn't make
Living in a world that's filled with hate
Living in a world where grown-ups break the rules
Living in a world they didn't make
Paying for a lot of adult mistakes
How much of this madness can they take
Our children

How much can they take.

Living in a world they didn't make
Living in a world that's filled with hate
Living in a world where grown-ups break the rules
Living in a world they didn't make
Paying for a lot of adult mistakes
How much of this madness can they take
Our children

How much can they take. 

How Much Can they take
Children of the world they are born so innocent
how much can they take, take the babies taken the babies.

Fame For Kids 2017 Reunion - Hope


"Hope" was one of the things that "Fame" gifted to me back when it all started in 1982. Yes there was the energy and excitement of the dance and the music but what has stayed with me all these years and helped me through tough times was the "Hope" it gave me.

For a lonely teenager "lost on a winding road" without "Hope" life can seem pretty awful. Without that "Hope" I'm not sure I'd even be here today. "Fame" showed me "that just to live was the greatest gift of all." 

 #Fameforkids2017 Reunion Concert for the #Fame35 anniversary can now give "Hope" to other lost and lonely children. Children who's circumstances are far worse than most of us have experienced in our lives.

Everyone deserves a chance, everyone needs some "Hope" in their lives. Ger Onlus, needs our help to bring a little "Hope" for the children in Colombia. Pledge now to get your tickets to experience the "Fame" dream for real but even if you can't attend please donate to support "Fame" and give something back to a show and a cast that has given us all so much over the last 35 years and help "Fame" continue to give it's "Hope" and magic to others.

Song of the Week - I Know I Can - Gene Anthony Ray


"I Know I Can" Comes from the season 3 episode "Knockout" and is performed by Gene Anthony Ray.



I'm the daring young man on the flying trapeze
I'm the fool on the high wire
I'm the one who can run with the greatest of ease
I'm a house on fire


Watch me burn
Watch me turning circles in the air
I take this chance, do this dance
On the razors edge


Cause I know I can
I know I can
Yes I know I can
I know who I am

Name your game, I'll win it
I refuse to lose it
I'm the one who'll do it
Cause I know I can


Do you see that star coming out of the sky
Like its shot from a cannon
Just like me trying to fly
I never worry 'bout landing


Feel the heat
Feel the street life moving all around you
I'm so alive
And I try to be want I want to


Cause I know I can
I know I can
Yes I know I can
I know who I am

Name your game, I'll win it
I refuse to lose it
I'm the one who'll do it
Cause I know I can


Cause I know I can
I know I can
Yes I know I can
I know who I am

Name your game, I'll win it
I refuse to lose it
I'm the one who'll do it
Cause I know I can Yes I know I can

Name your game, I'll win it (Win it)
I refuse to lose it (lose It)
I'm the one who'll do it
Cause I know I can
