Michelle “Magica” Canbuldu – Singer/Songwriter
Some people know me as Michelle Canbuldu (pronounced JOHNbullDO)and others know me as Magica. (Pronounced MAHgikA). Magica was a name given to me when I was a belly dancer in New Jersey. There were many days that I sat stuck in traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway (bored) that I started writing some of my best songs which are included on this 1ST CD BEARING GOOD FRUIT. It wasn’t until I moved to Southeast Florida that we met up with a New Producer from The Write Note Foundation DOUGLAS COOPER “THE COOP” GETSCHAL and started putting together our very first CD. This process was very expensive and took a long time, due to the fact that we could only afford to Produce & ARRANGE one song at a time, for a while, anyway. I started out as an Opera singer and was proud to be a part of the Palm Beach Opera . My biggest challenge was learning two operas; La Traviata (in Italian) and Carmen (in French). I had to learn both Operas, in two different languages, at the same time! I still enjoy singing Opera. I live in a town called Wellington, F.L. world famous for Palm Beach Polo and Polo matches. I happen to love riding horses and there are many horse farms here that will accommodate experienced and inexperienced riders. I also love show-jumping (although I have been asked NOT to participate in this because it can be dangerous)! I also enjoy working out at our local LA Fitness gym. Of course, my number #1 hobby is songwriting first and then singing. Although, before writing the song Spirit, Spirit, I actually learned how to play some Acoustic Guitar, and came up with the chords, that turned into this incredible song! Mark and I are so happy to finally bring this project to completion and we hope that you will really enjoy listening & PURCHASING $$$ it. Life can be hard and challenging at times, and GOD knows we have written about so many different life experiences! One of my favorite songs on the CD that I wrote called, Extreme Life, is a perfect example of the many challenges that we sometimes face. But, if we keep our LOVE & Faith in the KING-Lord, Jesus Christ, he will see us through all of our trials and tribulations! Amen to that!

When I first heard this CD especially the intro, I looked around the studio and then up thinking, uh oh, I am in trouble! And then realized it was the cd. Very powerful, and makes you want to reconsider your ways. This is a great CD to help you keep the faith
