Happy New Year!!!
I hope 2014 has already brought you beautiful days and peaceful nights. This is what I wish for every year. I did add a new resolution to my usual list.. be healthy, lose weight, go to Positano Italy, have my own tour bus, play at the Hollywood Bowl.. etc.. . I want to be able to accompany myself on piano and guitar.. just 2 songs for now.. by myself.. soo.. I’ve got a year to reach that goal. I think I can do it.. considering I have a few chords under my belt already I met my goal last year.. I wanted to get better and lose weight. I did it! So this is going to be cake! What is your resolution this year? Get healthy, vacation more, find your true love, or even just cleaning out your garage.. (that’s on my list every year haha). Well no matter what.. just do your best and be your authentic self and all will fall into place.
I’ll be setting up some more gigs soon. Keep checking in for info and thank you for all of your support. Check out CDBaby for my latest CD and my Latin Jazz album too. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/rebekahdelrio2

Please join me for a private (yet public) show right here in my home in Los Angeles. STAGEIT.com allows artists to perform to people ALL over the world, without ever leaving your living room. No matter where you are or what time it is, you can join in and see my live show. It’s not a pre-recorded show and it will not be the same ever again. You log on to www.stageit.com and you sign up (it’s FREE) then you pay for the ticket (really reasonably priced at 5 bucks) and you then put that date and time in your calendar. Log in for the show and watch it, interact with me via im (only people who buy tickets can do this btw) and you can certainly TIP the artist (that’s me) … since 5 bucks is so darn cheap (and I only get a percentage of that) you can tip me if you want to hear a specific song (I don’t do covers by the way, unless they were on my previous albums.. well okay, I will do some Patsy Cline but only if you ask nicely and TIP handsomely, kay?) You interact with other fans from ALL over the world.. and if you’re the most generous tipper, there’s a special price just for you!! It’s going to be so much fun. Please email me your requests up front so I can make a set list (only have 1 hour to do this). I’m so excited to do this show. Please spread the word and join the party. See you on Oct. 6, 2012 @ 5:55p.m.

This album is about the duality of amor. 11 cinematic tracks that will leave you feeling like you’ve just witnessed the best epic movie of all time. Each song thrills you and pulls at your heart strings. This is the ultimate movie soundtrack.
The film? Life!
Released on the day of conscious awareness, 11/11/11. This album will surely move your soul into a higher frequency.
Today has finally arrived. 11/11/11. We did it!! We made this album together! Thank you to every single Believer who helped me make this beautiful record. Thank you to the amazing production team who helped me make it so incredible! Heather Holley, Dave Eggar, Dina Fanai, Rob Hoffman, John Neff, Bob Kinkel, and Chuck Palmer. (my co-writes and producers) Please go to the Music Page where I have the liner notes from the album that lists every single angel that worked on this album. I could not have made this beautiful magic without you all.
Thank You… Love & Light … Rebekah Del Rio 11:11 on 11/11/11
Love Hurts Love Heals is now available on I-tunes. Just click the Album Cover below and listen to the new record.
Today marks 10 years since 9/11.
It is unbelievable that it has been 10 whole years. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was living in the same place I am blessed to still be in right now. (at least for now) I got into my car to go to work. I had Spanish radio on (that’s how I practice my Español) and these people were talking about the buildings in N.Y. and planes and that America was under attack… I thought it was a telenovela program or something and I didn’t understand all of it (my Spanish isn’t that great) and then it hit me, these people were serious and so I changed the station to NPR. I sat in my driveway listening for a minute, in complete disbelief and I immediately thought… “I have to go get my baby”.. I rushed to pull Phillip out of school and I brought him home. We watched the news in horror! We cried, we lost it. He asked me “Momma, will they bomb downtown?” We can see the LA skyline from my house. We devised a plan. We went to get more food and water. We updated our earthquake preparedness kit. We hugged and hugged and cried some more. I’ll never forget the feeling, the fear I felt for my life, my son’s life and the future of my country. The deep sadness I felt for all the innocent people who were losing their lives.
In the weeks and months after the attack, I was amazed how so many people were patriotic and waving their flags on their cars and it seemed that people were kinder to one another. That was a blessing. During that time, I believe people were trying to share love because we, as Americans, needed to comfort one another and BELIEVE that we were safe, united and that our leaders would protect us.
Little did I know that it would not be a world war that would take my child’s life, but the war on our health from that vicious disease cancer & the FDA that approves the poison we eat & a government that allows these pharmaceutical companies to harm us, all for the love of the almighty dollar…
We as a human race need to protect ourselves and our Mother Earth from the war on our planet by money hungry world leaders. The War on our spirits by money hungry religious false prophets. The War on our health by money hungry Pharmaceutical & Medical Insurance companies. The war on our homes by money hungry banks & credit card companies. The War on our Country by money hungry politicians. The war on our selves for BELIEVING the lies that are fed to us.
to listen to a taste of the new album and very special song 11:11 the password is 9/11
So with the utmost respect for the victims of 9/11 and the victims of every atrocity done in this world, I am asking everyone that receives my 11th emails to take time today to honor those precious lives lost & all of us that mourn them. Send out positive energy to those who are fighting for their lives & those who are still fighting for our country. May they come home safely. Show kindness to everyone around you and to our Mother Earth.
Be grateful because 10 years later, we are still here and we can make a difference if we join together, as humans, all of us made of energy, to unite for the good of ALL mankind.
Love & Light,
What will YOU do today and beyond?

This is my second Mother’s day without Phillip being physically here. I have his beautiful spirit surrounding me always. I feel so blessed to have been his Mom for 23 years. I will always be his Moma (that’s how he used to spell it) and I will one day hold him in my arms again. I want to wish everyone a beautiful day…
Love & Light
Rebekah (Phillip’s Mamasita)
We did it! We made our goal and we reached 111% funding and I made my personal goal of 111 Believers! Thank you so very much. I cannot wait to go and make this record. I am going to N.Y. at end of June, early July to start on the Love Hurts – Love Heals album and I couldn’t have done this without YOUR generous pledges.
I would like to give a very special GRACIAS to my Pro-Believer Ms. Janet Bogle of Atlanta who was so generous and determined for me to make my record, she pledged at the very top level. I will be doing a special concert for her that we will video tape and share a clip or two with all of the Believers. Thank you Janet… from the bottom of my heart, Thank you!
Many of you expressed to me your personal experience with loss and why my son’s message & my album dedicated to him was so inspiring. I am truly moved by your words and your courage to reach out and help someone else make their dreams come true. I feel we are all connected in energy, although sometimes by loss, we are still so intertwined that it becomes a beautiful experience, even through sadness, to share hope and love with a stranger.
I want to thank you for letting me be a part of your lives and making me part of yours. Although LOVE HURTS we all know that LOVE HEALS. So thank you for helping me spread this message through my music.
This project means the world to me and I know that my beloved son Phillip has his hand in all of this. I aim to make him proud. I will be posting more updates on the Believers Page for all the Believers to see the progress of my record and the results of your generous pledges.
From all that is within me… I thank you and send you all so much
LOVE & LIGHT,
Rebekah Del Rio
Today is the most wonderful day. Thanks to all of you BELIEVERS who pledged to my kickstarter campaign to raise $11,111.00, especially my PRO-BELIEVER who pledged at the 5,555.00 level this morning, I am going to be able to make my album LOVE HURTS – LOVE HEALS. I cannot thank you all enough for your generous pledges. On April 11th, your pledges will go through Amazon and I will then send all the rewards to each and every one of you. My biggest reward is just knowing that I will be able to make this record. It’s been 6 years since I have made a record and I am so excited to share my music with the world. 6 years of love and loss all wrapped up in an 11 song record. I hope you all like it. I’m so thrilled to be working with Heather Holley and her team of angels on this album in New York. I’ll start recording in June once my tenure here in San Francisco is done. The record will be released on 11/11/11.
I am so very grateful. Thank YOU!!
Love & Light

Happy March 11th from
My beloved son Phillip (3/7/86 – 5/31/09) would have turned 25 this past March 7. It was a bitter sweet day for me. I try to imagine what he would be doing if he were still here, healthy. Would he have his own restaurant by now? Would he be engaged? Would he be living in another city? All I know is that wherever he is, his spirit is always with me. On his special day he sent me many 11:11 prompts. One was a credit card balance of $11.11 that we happened to check at exactly 1:11. Amazing!
When my son was diagnosed with cancer, he spent many months in children’s Hospital Los Angeles. To pass the time, he created wonderful creatures out of colored pipe cleaners. So to honor Phillip and his journey, Phil’s oncologist created "Pipe Cleaner Art Day" on March 7th. Click here for Photos.
Dr. Tishler plans on making this an annual event. Thank you Dr. T. You’re wonderful!
How’s that for making at least 11 people happy? Sure made me smile.
My New Album: Love Hurts – Love Heals
I am at the 1/2 way mark on my Kickstarter Campaign to make my new album "Love Hurts – Love Heals". Please share my video with everyone you know so I can make this new record. It’s been 6 years since I’ve made a record and I really need the help of Believers Remember no one is charged until April 11 and that’s ONLY if I make my $11,111 goal by then. So please pledge what you can. I have lot’s of goodies for you to choose from for each pledge amount.
I really appreciate whatever you can do.
Hope to see you in
Love & Light,
We are about half way there. At 5,555! I had to post and let you know how exciting this is! We have a little over a month to come up with the rest, please tell all of your friends, family and co-workers to pledge so we can make this new record.
All the love and light to you and yours.
