Unita: News & Updates

Veils and the Movies - November 25, 2014

So a few months ago I was contacted by a lovely man, Bill Riead, who was working on a movie about Mother Teresa called "The Letters", starring the great actors Max Von Sydow and Rutger Hauer. Turns out he is the writer and director, and heard my music from "Through the Veils" on Soundscapes while walking through his living room in Beverly Hills. He told me my voice and music was amazing and he wanted permission to consider some of my music for his film which was almost finished. Well, of course I said yes.

After much back and forth and long waits to hear in between, he finally contacted me and told me he wanted me in there but others had a say too and apparently I lost out to the wonderful Leona Lewis. What? THE Leona Lewis whose voice I have been a fan of every since she came on the scene several years ago...most recently she voiced the beautiful theme song for the movie "Avatar", "I See You"..I think that's the title. Well I didn't even know I was in the running along side of this lovely singer...so while disappointed, I was pinching myself that I was even in the same space to be considered. Wow.

Bill Riead sent me a beautiful email to let me know that he would definitely be contacting me in the future. I believe him. So let's see what the future brings! See email below. And go see the movie. I believe it is released by 20th Century Fox and Distributed by Disney (there is the Disney connection again!). I saw the trailer...it looks just beautiful.

Here is the email.....

Hi Unita,

 

"My film, "The Letters", will open wide throughout the U.S. on December 5 ... and though it's too late for me to use any of your songs in my current film, I have every intention of getting with you on future music for future films that I will direct.  You're voice is absolutely beautiful and unique and lends itself to cinema, especially when playing such songs as 'Through the Veils' over an end credits crawl."

Good luck.

Unita Sings at Disney!! - November 25, 2014

So in the summer of 2014 I was honored to be invited to perform in concert at the International Society of Angels hosted Angel Expo in Orlando at Disney. This was an amazing event full of beautiful souls all working together to make a difference in our lives. In addition, I have always wanted to sing for Disney since I was a child, perhaps even as a Disney character, so for me this was close enough! Thank you to all of you who attended our concert, the angelic energy there was beyond amazing! Beautiful, beautiful.......

ABOUT THROUGH THE VEILS 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION

 Through the Veils - 10th Anniversary Special Edition is a new, special edition release from singer/songwriter Unita, a crystalline voiced songstress often compared to Enya, Loreena McKennitt and Sarah McLachlan. Her successful original release with the same title became an International hit in the New Age genre. Carol Wright with New Age Voice said “Through the Veils is mouthwatering and soul-stirring. In essence, a gem….the real thing.” Now, a decade later, this special edition version will delight many with the crisp, clear sound of the re-mastering, the beautiful new packaging, and two bonus tracks of new music recorded by Unita.

This timeless collection of original music soars with Unita’s haunting and beautiful voice, accompanied by an intimate blend of piano, keyboards, layered vocals and ethereal textures. Dreams, Angels, Enchantment, Peace… all themes of the gorgeous songs within that take the listener on a wondrous journey. Popular recording artists Joseph Akins (Masterpeace, Spirit Touch) and Herb Ernst (Dreamflight Trilogy, Bringers of the Dawn, Angels and Ecstasy) lend their piano and keyboard talents to this exceptional album of music. This album will surely touch a new generation of listeners as well as become a must-have collector’s item for her fans.

"It was an hour of pure happiness listening to your amazing CD. I fell in love with your two bonus tracks, WOW!! Your CD is a flawless jewel. BRAVO. You are really a music angel."
