Color Me Beautiful by Joett: The Reworked "Acoustic Pop" Single Is Released on Mkito.com Today

The 70s disco single Color Me Beautiful by Joett, which debuted in 2012, has had a complete reworking to an acoustic guitar setting that gives it a brand new vibe and direction.

Today (February 28, 2017), it is released as an Acoustic Pop single on Tanzania’s premier music download site Mkito.com.

This new version was recorded at Dar es salaam’s state-of-the-art recording studio, Wanene; where renowned musician Elisha Sukari, who also plays for multiple award-winning Tanzanian megastar Lady Jaydee, plays the acoustic guitar on Color Me Beautiful.

Also featured in Joett’s Vocal Drills in Parts 5, 6 & 7 as part of his latest vocal training modules—also available on Mkito—Color Me Beautiful is now being released by the platform as an acoustic pop single for music lovers to download.

Personalized Vocal Coaching On Skype: Europe, USA, Canada, Africa

If you've experienced private vocal coaching fees (especially in Europe and North America), that are a bit on the steep side, then you'll be delighted to find that working with a vocal coach on Skype can be a brilliant way to save a packet. 

Improving your singing voice needn’t be prohibitively expensive; and nor is getting affordable voice training a figment of your imagination. 

Because you can outsource to a professional vocal coach abroad.

The more you get stuck in with voice training, the more you’ll want to continue training for as long as it takes. Heck, Michael Jackson trained with one vocal coach for 36 years! 

But when you’re paying over $80 an hour for the services of a professional vocal coach in Europe and North America, finance becomes one of the reasons why you’ll probably want to quit training. 

You’re going to be amazed to find just how affordable and equally effective a similar vocal coaching service using Skype and a voice tutor offshore can be for you.

For over ten years, I have coached pupils in my studio in Oysterbay… most of whom are expatriates and diplomats living in Tanzania. When their residency terms came to an end, however, many of my clients wanted to stay on the training program because they simply enjoyed singing and the learning process.

And that’s how my vocal coaching services gradually migrated to an online vocal coaching platform via Skype, Zoom, Google Meet and WhatsApp Call. I wonder if you’ve realized where I’m going with this.

If you want to save a packet on vocal coaching fees, and you’re the kind of person that really likes to sing but cost has been a deterrent for you in your country of residence, then you will be delighted to hear that I will offer you my professional vocal coaching services online at a fraction of the fees you would normally pay to a vocal coach in Europe and North America.

To book your first session, please check out the World Time Zones

My geographical location is Dar es salaam on the East coast of Africa. Once you know the exact time-frame you’d like your vocal training sessions in, simply send me a quick text message via Skype or WhatsApp (details in poster) to set-up your first appointment.

How to Set-Up for Lessons On Skype

To find out more on how exactly this process works, read my articles How to Get Skype Voice Lessons Customized to You by JOETT and How to Set-up for Voice Lessons with a Coach on Skype.

Africa and Diaspora

I've also written a special article for Africa and the Diaspora: Namibia’s Nam Radio Ignitions Voice Coaching Initiative for Africa.

In this video my pupil Svea, formerly based in Tanzania, sings Les Feuilles Mortesis
 at an event in Sweden where she now resides and continues to train with me 
...via Skype. In the next video (below) Svea sings Hallelujah. Enjoy!

Need Corporate Voice Training? 

For those of you interested in corporate voice training, however, please read my article Discover the Incredible Benefits Of Corporate Voice Training for Business Executives, Telemarketers And Politicians.


I accept payment by Credit, Debit Cards and PayPal via the Nam Radio platform, and we’ll discuss the details of the training programs when you get in touch with me.

Joett - Color Me Beautiful [Lyrics]

You make the world a better place
Your love is divine, straight down the line
Take me away from what I know
Onto a better place
There in your arms
Your love is divine, straight down the line

Cos you know that I’m addicted to love
Cos you know that I’m addicted to love
So color me beautiful
Color me blind

The color of love
Is roses and wine
And yours in particular, is so divine
I know your love will never end
It’s gonna be there till the end
You make the world a better place
Your love is divine, straight down the line

Cos you know that I’m addicted to love
Cos you know that I’m addicted to love
So color me beautiful
Color me blind

Cos you know that I’m addicted to love
[Just like the earth needs the rain]
Cos you know that I’m addicted to love
[I’ll never stop needing you]
So color me beautiful
[Yes you’re invisible, One of a kind]
Color me blind
[But sure I can feel your tender touch]

Joett Music Joins Nutritional Supplements Brand GNLD, to Optimize Vocal Health and Vitality for Singers

If you have been wondering how to maintain a healthy voice and weren't making any headway, then you will be pleased to learn that the conundrum is now completely over. 

People have always wanted from me, information on what to do and what to take to preserve the voice, and I’m obliged to share what I use myself to maintain a healthy voice—gladly, but because all of my nutritional products were shipped in from the United States every month directly, it was not always easy to recommend the products that I use because they’re actually not available in the country. And so I tried to switch brands little by little, with a product line that is manufactured in the USA but is available in Tanzania.

So, for a couple of years now, I have slowly replaced my imported products with locally available GNLD and I have to say, I’m totally pleased and satisfied with these products. So much so that I have now signed up with the nutritionals brand as a distributor, and I’m well on my way to recommending these fabulous products to all the singers in Tanzania and across Africa.

The more you value your vocal health, the more you’ll want to preserve your voice. You’re going to be surprised to discover that it takes more than just staying well away from freezing cold drinks; staying away from cigarette smoke and drug abuse; getting lots of much needed rest; and excluding chilies from your diet to maintain a healthy voice. With nutritional supplements from GNLD, you have the most effective vocal health supplements on the planet.

Some high profile music industry professionals say that until you’ve experienced the beauty of optimal vocal health, you’ll have absolutely no idea what your body is missing out on. Like I said earlier, I have used nutritional supplements for overall health and vitality for many many years and personally, I simply couldn’t live without them.

I wonder if you’ve noticed how some celebrities of this world continue to look fresh and beautiful year on year, completely defying the hands of time. Well, I’ll tell you this for nothing, they give their bodies the best cellular nutrition money can buy—with supplementation. That is their secret to longevity, and it can be yours too.

If you’re the kind of person that wants to maintain a healthy voice for years to come; and to look fresh and youthful for as long as you possibly can, then this will be exactly what you’re looking for. I not only endorse the GNLD nutritional products, I highly recommend them!

GNLD Nutritional Products are now available at Joett Voice studio, Oysterbay.
