Hello to our wonderful readers and fans! Now that September is here, autumn is just around the corner. It has been a Hot summer.
August was a busy and exciting month for me and many others, especially with the start of another school year. I want to share with you about embracing and celebrating community events and how easy it is to “Make a Difference!”
As I look forward into September and October and prepare for what God has in store for me, I look back at the blessings God presented me this past month.
I spent my time going to auditions, acting, and emceeing while helping within the community. In doing this, I realize how important our community is and how easy it is to get involved.
I had the opportunity to be the Mistress of Ceremonies for UTSA’s Alumni Scholarship Gala. It was an honor to be among so many of our leaders, including UTSA President Dr. Ricardo Romo and his beautiful wife, Dr. Harriett Romo.
It was a full house and as I gazed throughout the ballroom, I saw the commitment to education that each individual has given to be an inspiration for themselves, their loved ones, and for others.
The Mystic Knights held their annual School Supply Drive. This year they included their commitment to the SouthTown Lions by adding an eyeglass drive. The Mystic Knights have captivated my heart as they constantly reach out to help less fortunate children and families.
With the help of his family, local car clubs and community leaders, Carlos Martinez, Mystic Knights President (who also writes for Street Talk), collected supplies to ease the financial burden on families so the students can focus on education.
As he addressed the crowd, he mentioned that even a pencil can make a difference as it gives students something to write with. We were moved by his speech. The Knights are an inspiration.
The Ambassador Project SA, led by Professor Joe Michael Gonzales held their inaugural fundraiser to provide students with Scholarships. They raised $1,300 in their first attempt. Great Job Guys!
Jaime Martinez celebrated his 66th birthday at Pueblo Hall with about 150 of his closest friends. Jaime let me emcee his party, which included Congressman Lloyd Doggett, Commissioner Tommy Atkinson and many others. But the real gift was listening to Jaime play his trumpet with Little Henry and the Legends band. What a great night!
We helped the Latinos in Action Hispanic Sports Hall of Fame Induction raise money for scholarships. The inductees included SA Talon’s record-setting Quarterback Aaron Garcia; NFL Pro-Bowl Guard Max Montoya; High school Basketball Superstar Denise Forestier; and Dr. Henry Cisneros, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award. The LIA has presented more than $90K in scholarship monies in the last 18 years.
I am excited to say that I got an opportunity to play a part in an upcoming film. Filmed here in San Antonio, it included me acting with legends in the film industry. What an experience! I learned that if you just show up, great things can happen. Will keep you posted on the film.
On October 13th, I will receive an Outstanding Women Role Model Award from the Image De San Antonio. Proceeds will also go to scholarships. What an honor!
On October 6, from 3 to 8 pm, more than 25,000 Rubber Ducks will race down the San Antonio River to benefit Haven for Hope and Paseo del Rio Association! Adopt a duck for $5! Hope to see you there.
I want to wish all the students a great and successful year. You are the future so do your best, ask God for guidance and open your mind to learning.
Do not Bully. If you know of anyone being bullied, speak to your parents and your principal and stand up for the little guy. You have the right to be you, get an education and be an example to others.
As always, Saludos to all of the men and women who serve and have served our country in the military, you are our heroes.
Giving back to your community is a way to “Make a Difference!” Giving of time is as important as giving money. Big or small, fundraiser or community awareness events, these all give us an opportunity to build bridges and remove barriers.
God has blessed you with a gift – Please, let us give together, these gifts given so freely by Father God!
I thank you for your continued support, walking with me on my journey and ask you Make a Difference. And remember to always “Walk by faith and not by Sight!” - Brandy
Check out this candid interview with Latin Fusion Tv’s Brandy Lopez Despierta America’s Poncho de Anda as they discuss the joys of Fatherhood!
In order to be the father that God and your children want you to be – you must teach the lessons of your own Fathers!
I am a Father, and as such, I have responsibilities…to my children, their mother, my parents and friends. As a Father, I have a responsibility to make the world a better place. I must set a good example and be diligent to the fact (continue reading…)
Después de convertirse en disco de platino en la Unión Americana, hoy toda la gente de México podrá disfrutar el nuevo disco de INTOCABLE en una versión Deluxe.
Los Angeles, Ca (May 9, 2012) – Hablar de 17 años de carrera se dice fácil, pero los 2 Grammys Americanos, 4 Grammys Latinos, ser nombrados como “El Grupo de la Decada” por Billboard, entre otro sinnúmero de reconocimientos es algo que no cualquier agrupación puede presumir y que en el caso de INTOCABLE es una realidad.
Hablar de 17 años de carrera se dice fácil, pero los 2 Grammys Americanos, 4 Grammys Latinos, ser nombrados como “El Grupo de la Decada” por Billboard, entre otro sinnúmero de reconocimientos es algo que no cualquier agrupación puede presumir y que en el caso de INTOCABLE es una realidad.
Hoy el grupo originario de Zapata, Texas, está de regreso en el mercado mexicano con el lanzamiento de su nuevo material titulado de manera homónima “ Intocable 2011” y el cual fue lanzado a mediados del año pasado en Estados Unidos, convirtiéndose en todo un suceso dentro de la industria musical, pues logró un disco de platino por más de 100, 000 copias vendidas, además resultó multinominado en todas las entregas de premios en la Unión Americana y sus sencillos ” Robarte un beso” y “Llueve”, se colocaron en las listas de popularidad como uno de los temas más pedidos por la gente en todas las estaciones de radio.
Un plus que INTOCABLE decidió incluir en este disco para el público mexicano es que es una versión deluxe que incluye un cd en el que además de los … temas de la versión original, también podemos disfrutar 2 remixes de … y un dvd con 7 videoclips de presentaciones en vivo del grupo.
Con 14 discos en su carrera y después de que desde el 2008 INTOCABLE no lanzaba un nuevo disco, hoy podemos disfrutar una producción en el que no sólo se muestra su sonido tradicional, caracerístico e incomparable, sino que también es notorio la calidad y producción del grupo que no por nada es considerada la máxima agrupación de música norteña en estos tiempos.
Sin lugar a dudas, así como “Intocable 2011″ se convirtió en todo un éxito en Estados Unidos, estamos seguro que correrará con la misma suerte en México, en donde son grandes consentidos del público que siempre está pendiente de cada nuevo proyecto de INTOCABLE.

New Year Resolution – Follow Your Heart! By Brandy Lopez
Happy New Year everyone! May your dreams and endeavors come true in 2012 – may you be prosperous and may Father God find favor on you. It is a time of New Beginnings!
But first, I want to thank you all for your prayers last year as my family and I went through a difficult time in our life. We almost lost our daughter Diamond due to illness. (continue reading…)
Happy New Year to everyone!
My this year be a prosperous year for you and all your endeavors and your Dreams.
This year I have decided not to make a New Years resolution, but to actually move forward with what God has Blessed me with.
I want to thank each and everyone of you for all your prayers this last year as my family and I went through the most difficult time in our life, when we almost lost our Daughter Diamond during Thanksgiving. If you do not know about this – she was on 100% life support and not expected to make it through Thanksgiving!
When asked who would make the final decision – if need be – I knew in my heart that it would not be me – it would be Jesus Christ.
As I stepped outside of the ER that evening to pray, I saw the the Twinkle in the Sky that brought back a beautiful sweet memory of my Princess Diamond when she was two years old. She and I would sing” Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!” Her favorite phrase was “Like a Diamond in The Sky” and she would say I am looking at you!
It was at that moment that God was saying: “I am looking over her as I am healing her back to life!”
Today, I am happy to say that after three weeks in the hospital and on Life support, our daughter is walking, talking and eating like you wouldn’t believe – and we love it!
But, we have to extend our Thanks to all of you for all your support and Love.
We should never take those that we love for Granted or say something that we may never be able to take back – especially if God chooses to take them from us at any given moment! When you invite someone into your own life treat them like they matter, like they are family! That is one thing that I was raised and taught and I plan to have my children do the same. We may not always be perfect in each others eyes , but we definitely are in Gods eyes.
We have been Blessed with three beautiful children that are all grown up today, but to dad and myself they will always be our babies.
They each have a twinkle in the Sky that is as bright as a star and shines like a Diamond.
When you look at your loved ones Imagine that and give thanks to Jesus Christ for all the Blessings he has given you when it comes to Family and Friends.
This New Year I have no new years resolution as for many years everyone seems to make them yet there are those of us who never keep them, yes I am guilty!
The Blessings that God has given me this past year as he prepared me for the New Year! I promise not to take for Granted but to make it a priority, “my Priority!”.
I will reach for that Twinkle in The Sky, set my Goals and make them reality. If you ask what is it that you want to do and how do you plan to do it, my answer is this: “I don’t have that answer, therefore I will not answer, but I can only trust in God and Walk with Faith! If you believe in me like you say you do then I pray for your patience, your faith and your support!”
This I can say: God has answered great prayers this past year and one was healing my daughter and He has opened my vision to a New Beginning of real success!
I am sure 2011 was a tough year for a lot of us, some of us had to deal with financial set backs, Health problems, and I am sure other personal issues.
This I will say why not join forces and make a real difference in our lives and set goals and make them happen.
We sometimes let the enemy take over and he will try and sneak up on those of us that are weak. I know because it has happen to me 2011 was not a very year good for myself The fears just got deeper and I became weak that I allowed it to happen.
God has let me know as the year almost ended that he has great plans for us by opening wonderful opportunities.
I am very happy and proud to say that Michael was blessed with an opportunity and he made it happen.
I received an email from a person out of state and is now a client and is blogging on our website Blog, so with that said I have come to realize that no matter what I think or feel I should not Fear or be insecure I have to open my heart and soul and listen when I am being assured and told the truth.
I have felt so lost and felt like I was going in different directions with me creating no direction for myself or my show.
My fear was that I would give it all I have and really make it happen and some where down the road along with everything else that I love and care about would vanish.
I may have been my own enemy thinking these crazy thoughts, but today in time it is some times hard for me to trust, others may not understand but I have given in my time and shared with a kind heart and when not expecting it a bomb would hit, I know I have been told many times that life and we have to keep going. But that alone would be enough to scare anyone as it has scared me.
Yet 2012 will be different I want to share with you that Latin Fusion TV will succeed and it may not just be just Latin Fusion TV but I will be looking at an even Greater picture I may not have all the answers or the logistics but I know that they are there where God has put them in my sight.
I support you with all your Goals and Endeavors for the New Year and ask that you please continue to support me.
I may have created Tejano Classic TV and gave it a new name LFTV but I did not make it happen on my own.
After going thru so many obstacles I have to say thank You to Independent Functions who is the strong power and mind behind LFTV and it’s website are today.
That is the power of “If” as it’s slogan says I can’t get what I want unless I help others get what they need.
This is proven to be very true and I am very grateful although I may not show it I know what my Heart feels.
Thank You Michael Arellano for your real believes in what a dream or goal can really become reality.
You are that Twinkle in the Sky!
I am sorry for my actions and for saying I am just me.
I am not just me I am a person, who can make a difference if I just let thinks be..
I hope that those of you reading my article will learn by may mistakes and never give up on what God has blessed you with.
2012 will bring out the the Eye of the Tiger that will add that twinkle in my eyes and if I plan to shine and work hard for our business I hope you do the same.
Nothing or no one can ever take that away.
Happy New Year my dear friends and remember to hold on to each other and never let go that is just what the enemy wants as I have heard this many times.
Continue to smile like you have always done even if there was a time you felt it was gone, it has always been there, the enemy just tried to take control and today I found my smile again.
May God Bless You and continue to Walk by Faith and Not by Sight!
Many people have heard the term cloud computing, but few seem to be aware of what it really is. This is unfortunate, because it is the future of how computers will operate. In its most basic form, this type of computing is the use of programs and information over a network, usually the internet, instead of having them physically in the same location.
Most people are already using a cloud company service without even realizing it every time they access pictures or music that they have saved on a remote server. There are many companies that are being started to provide this service, but there are also many well-known companies like Google, Amazon and Apple that are branching out to offer cloud services to businesses and individuals alike. There are many benefits of using cloud computing and a few drawbacks that must be considered.
The flexibility and cost savings are usually considered the largest advantages of utilizing the cloud. By storing applications and data remotely, people are able to access them from any location. Data storage and server costs can also be significantly reduced. Paying a monthly fee is a much smaller cost than purchasing and maintaining the storage drives that even a small business would need. Many business owners also use the cloud as part of their disaster recovery plan. By having all data and computer programs stored in the cloud, it is safe from any disasters like floods or fire at the physical business site.
The number one concern about using this type of computing is the safety of the data being stored. Many people are rightly concerned about making sure that their information is safe from any hackers or other computer criminals. Fortunately, most services have numerous data safeguards in place to prevent any unauthorized access. When looking for a cloud service, one should inquire and understand the precautions that are taken to protect their information.
Walking by Faith!
Saludos Everyone! We hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
I am writing in lieu of Brandy because she has spent the last couple of weeks at University Hospital. Her daughter Diamond is in ICU. She is currently on life support, breathing with the help of a ventilator. Brandy and her family ask for your prayers.
Brandy and her family want to thank you all for your visits, support and prayers. It is working! Diamond is healing! Most of all – we thank Father God for the healing he has given Diamond and for complete healing and restoration. Thank you Father God for all of your blessings!
This leads me to this month’s topic: Walking by Faith! Sometimes it is difficult to walk by faith, mostly (continue reading…)
Brandy and I, here at Latin Fusion Tv, wish you a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
If you are not from the states, you may not celebrate Thanksgiving, as it is a National Holiday for us in the US, as we celebrate the beginning of a new nation and our national pride. It was a time of new beginnings for our country, even before it was a country! Which brings me to my point!
Right now, Brandy is undergoing a tough time! Her daughter is in intensive care, or ICU, and on Life Support! Two days ago she was on the brink of death – today she is breathing at 60%.
What a difference a day makes. It reminds me to be grateful in all things, both big and small. And in order to do that – I must realize that thanksgiving is more an attitude than just a day. And while many are waiting for the day after, Black Friday, they are forgetting the reason why we celebrate Thanksgiving in the first place.
That being said, I will spend time with my family, knowing I cannot afford the deals that Black Friday will bring, but I am thankful that we are not suffering through another loss in our life! I am grateful that my brother is here in town, my family will get together, as will Brandy’s (even if it is in the hospital). We will gather and pray for those things that matter! Because we have learned that Thanksgiving is an attitude – not just a day! And there is much to be thankful for!
Thanks for reading, thanks for watching and most of all Thanks for the Prayers! May God Bless, heal and protect our beloved Diamond Monique!
Have a blessed day and a Happy Thanksgiving!
We love you all!
