BEHIND THE SCENE
THE CONCEPTION STORY OF REAL RAW RECORDS INC.
Hi my name is KanD Johnson, I am singer and songwriter, and the founder of The Music is Magic Foundation a non profit organization, which was organized as a result of the gifts I possess and challenges I have faced in life.
Firstly, I was born with mental challenges, in addition to that was molested & raped by numerous people in the course of my childhood, and to top the tragedies off I suffered immense emotional abuse from family members that told me I would never be anything positive and still today are always pointing out my inadequacies.
The other side of the spectrum I had two people that generated positivity!
My grandmother who was an awesome woman, noticed early on that I had a gift to sing and she cultivated that gift and drilled character in me and made sure I understood the need to love people in spite of. As a child she pulled me to the side and told me “God has blessed you with a gift to touch people with your voice.” She is dead now, but her words still live inside me, She said to me, “Promise me that you’ll never sing something if you don’t feel it!” I have kept that vow until this day.
My mother, who is now blind but has a vision that I would one day “Rock the House” as she says, adds inspiration for my success. Growing up, in spite being mentally retarded, she taught me that I can do anything I put my mind to. I have tried several careers, I drove 18 wheelers coast to coast and owned a resale appliance company and lost it after seven years. I was so devastated that all I had worked for was taken from me in one day.
After seven years, in one day, I lost everything but the clothes on my back. I had a nervous breakdown and was hospitalized. When I was in the hospital I had to fight a court order to be medicated. I told the doctor that I prefer the use of meditation and music as a therapeutic alternative because it is what works best for me. I sincerely believe that “MUSIC IS MAGIC”.
During my hospitalization I realized that losing my business could be viewed as a blessing in disguise. I could now concentrate on my music solely and fulfill my destiny. I have only been in the music business three years and I have had three major label offers and two smaller labels offer to sign me as an artist, I didn’t jump on those offers because there were strings attached…I refused to sell out…
I was not willing to compromise my integrity as a woman and sleep my way to the top! My body had been abused enough as a child. I never had the chance to choose who I would give my virginity to. I also was not willing to pretend to be something I am not! So, since I haven’t gotten any reasonable, or respectable offers…I decided to create an environment for myself to promote my talent…and others like me that just want to make good music thus the conception of REAL RAW RECORDS INC. and the Music is Magic Foundation which is a visionary vehicle to share our gifts with the world and be a system of support for others like us that don’t have family, or social support.
The mission of REAL RAW RECORDS is to provide MOTIVATION, INSPIRATION, AND INFORMATION. Music is Magic Conventions are necessary to bring people together to create “Music from the Soul..For the Soul.” and Prove that Music is Magic!
There is are alot of artist, musicians and record companies out there but much of the music you hear is not of the capacity of artistry that used to bombard the airwaves.
Oldschool music was composed of Raw Natural talent, singers and musicians alike.
Oldschool music used to be about love, being in love, happiness, enjoying life, and some sadness or blues that you could relate to but in totality it was inspiring and it touched our hearts. It affected us in ways we can’t describe. All we know and understand is that if you were in a bad mood, you could turn on the radio and just at that moment they would be playing a song that gave you hope.
Much of the music today has no perimeters of moral integrity. Most industry mainstream artist use digitally synthesized equipment to doctor up there voices and artificial musical sounds to replace real musicians. This is an outrage! We need to do something about it!
HERE’S THE PLAN!
WE HAVE ALREADY OBTAINED A NONPROFIT STATUS ON THE STATE LEVEL WE ARE CURRENTLY PURSUING RECOGNITION ON A FEDERAL LEVEL

There are real artist still out there pouring out of their heart and soul but they don’t have the financial support they need to further their career or be heard. That’s where we come in we can give them the guidance, support and hope they need.
