THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Angie Martinez is the “Voice of New York.” Now, for the first time, she candidly recounts the story of her rise to become an internationally celebrated hip hop radio icon. In her current reign at Power 105.1 and for nearly two decades at New York’s Hot 97, Angie Martinez has had one of the highest rated radio shows in the country. After working her way up as an intern, she burst on the scene as a young female jock whose on-air “Battle of the Beats” segment broke records and became a platform for emerging artists like a young Jay Z. Angie quickly became known for intimate, high-profile interviews, mediating feuds between artists, and taking on the most controversial issues in hip hop. At age twenty-five, at the height of the East Coast/West Coast rap war, Angie was summoned by Tupac Shakur for what would be his last no-holds-barred interview—which has never aired in its entirety and which she’s never discussed in detail—until now. Angie shares stories from behind-the-scenes of her most controversial conversations, from onetime presidential hopeful Barack Obama to superstars like Mary J. Blige and Chris Brown, and describes her emotional, bittersweet final days at Hot 97 and the highly publicized move to Power 105.1. She also opens up about her personal life—from her roots in Washington Heights and her formative years being raised by a single mom in Brooklyn to exploring the lessons that shaped her into the woman she is today. From the Puerto Rican Day Parade to the White House—Angie is universally recognized as a powerful voice in the Latino and hip hop communities. My Voice gives an inside look at New York City’s one-of-a-kind urban radio culture, the changing faces of hip hop music, and Angie’s rise to become the Voice of New York. From the Hardcover edition.

Blessed with one of the richest and most distinctive voices in the music business, Elkie Brooks has been entertaining people around the world since the age of fifteen - and even longer, if you count the weddings and bar mitzvahs at which she was asked to perform in her native Manchester as a young girl! It was Don Arden, father of Sharon Osbourne and the notorious 'Mr Big' of the music world, who discovered her, making her change her name from Bookbinder and sending her on a tour of Germany. It was make or break for the still raw Elkie, but as always her voice won through. She went on to become part of cult rock groups such as Dada and Vinegar Joe, before establishing herself as one of the UK's most successful female vocalists. Yet the road to stardom was never an easy one. But for the support of Elkie's great friend Humphrey Lyttelton, she says she might have been dead from drink. She has experienced hardships that would have daunted most, and dealt with them with the same spirit, grit and humour that make her singing so powerful. Along the way she has worked with many of the biggest names in the business and recorded some of the most iconic songs in rock history, including 'Lilac Wine', 'Sunshine After the Rain' and her signature tune, 'Pearl's A Singer'. In Finding My Voice, Elkie tells her remarkable story in her own unique voice, laying bare the reality of stardom and sharing her commitment to the great passion of her life - music.

"Recovering My Voice" follows the story of Aruni Nan Futuronsky from her earliest memories-on the beach with her family as a child-to her current position as a teacher and coach at the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living. As a young girl, Aruni struggled with a non-traditional sexuality and an incapacitating stutter. The memoir begins in her childhood years, a bittersweet mix of tender memories-moments with her father in his grocery store, a magical morning at Girl Scout camp-and harder times, periods colored by isolation and feelings of helplessness. After Part I, we follow Aruni into her adolescence and early adulthood as she continues to suffer through painful gender confusion and a hollow heterosexual marriage. Finally, Aruni faces her truth and breaks free. At the end of Part II, she moves to New York City and aligns herself with a group of radical Jewish feminist lesbians. But the excitement of her new city life quickly spirals out of control, and in her twenties and thirties, Aruni struggles through drugs, alcohol, and a series of failed relationships. All the while, she continues to teach English at an inner city high school, mitigating her growing discontent by smoking pot during lunch breaks. At the end of Part III, Aruni has hit rock bottom. After coming to while banging her head on the floor without a clue how long she's been there, Aruni decides to face her addiction and attends her first AA meeting-a choice that changes the course of her life. In Part IV, Aruni embraces her new alcohol- and drug-free existence. After taking a workshop at Kripalu in the Berkshires, she makes the decision to leave her city life behind and relocate to the ashram. There her spiritual journey takes off, full of soulful discoveries, growing pains, and a wonderful sense of self-discovery. In Part V, Aruni shifts from itinerant wanderer to guide and teacher, reflecting on the lessons she has learned and sharing with us the invaluable wisdom she has gained from her rich and varied experiences. Aruni's voice is fresh, funny, and heartbreaking, replete with emotional vulnerability and honesty. Recovering My Voice enlightens while it entertains, instructs while it inspires. Like the best of memoirs, is the story of one woman's life told against a backdrop of universal echoes.
