Welcome to the “Float like a butterfly” Home page.
The album is complete, thanks to the effort and quality of vocalists and musicians who have been good enough to lend their time and talent to the project. Great fun working with you all.
Most people visiting this page may know it’s a musical project which charts the life, career and associated times of the late and legendary Muhammad Ali.
I was asked a number of times about plans for “Float like a Butterfly” once complete, during the timescale of its making and recording.
Initially the plan, and hence my answer, was only – let’s get finished then I’ll be able to give it some thought.
However, Ali’s passing in June 2016, at a time when were nearly there, led to the immediate removal of any thought of promotion of the CD as a commercial venture. I came to the view that, in what was being created, we should both respect and reflect the values and wishes espoused by the man, instead utilising the “Float like a Butterfly” project, if at all possible, as a means of achieving something useful.
So to coincide with completion of the album, I have set up a Just Giving site at http://www.justgiving.com/Michael-Judkins2 to enable recipients of it, should they so wish, to donate towards the work of Cure Parkinsons Trust. More about that on my Charity page.
To obtain your copy of “Float like a Butterfly” please go to the Contact page and send a message of request, also letting me know if you would like to do so, how your interest in Muhammad Ali comes about. I will then respond by e-mail and arrange for your copy to be delivered.
Once again, there is no charge or obligation at all but I should be grateful you would consider making a small donation in support of the fund-raising effort on behalf of Cure Parkinson’s Trust and maybe post an accompanying message on the Just Giving site.
I hope “Float like a Butterfly” can bring enjoyment, further appreciation of a unique man, and for some perhaps a little nostalgia for those decades when his achievements and activities rarely went unnoticed.
