July 10, 2019  -- On July 7, 2019 Ringo returned to Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles for his annual Peace & Love Birthday event where he joined fans gathered for a Noon #peaceandlove celebration. The dream is to create a wave of Peace & Love across the planet, starting in New Zealand and ending in Hawaii. Ringo began these in 2008 at the Hard Rock Café Chicago and last year he celebrated the 10th Anniversary at the Hard Rock Café Nice. In the ensuing years it has grown enormously with #peaceandlove events all over the world, and this year had over 30 events in 26 countries (listed below).

“I’ve said it before but I really can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday, or a better gift I could ask for, than peace and love. It’s so great how every year it keeps growing, with the wave of peace and love starting in the morning on July 7 in Australia and ending in Hawaii, with celebrations in all the time zones in between. I am so happy to be back at Capitol Records, and for our great sponsors who are carrying the message of peace and love around the world, like the David Lynch Foundation, Life is Good, SiriusXM, Modern Drummer and Starbucks. I also want to thank each and everyone of you for continuing to help spread peace and love, Ringo.”

The event included tribute performances by Ben Kyle from ROMANTICA with Sara Watkins who performed “Act Naturally” and “It Don’t Come Easy”, and Southern California rock and roll band The Jacks performed “You’re Sixteen” and “Speed of Sound”. There was also a special premiere of an original song about peace and love composed for the occasion by students of the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus in partnership with the South Central LA Fernando Pullum Community Arts Center. The song will later premiere online as a video featuring music students as well as guest artists and friends.

 

WHO: Ringo Starr, Barbara Starkey, David Lynch, All Starr Alum Sheila E, Edgar Winter, Nils Lofgren, Jim Keltner, Gregg Bissonette as well as friends Don Was, Ed Begley Jr, Richard Lewis, T-Bone Burnett, Benmont Tench, Jenny Lewis, Peter Jackson, Jeffrey Ross and Life is Good founders Bert and John Jacobs 

WHAT: Ringo Starr's 11th Annual Peace & Love Birthday Celebration

Performances of Ringo’s songs were followed by a brief welcome from David Lynch, whose introduction of Ringo was emphasized with a drum roll from Jim Keltner. Ringo led gathered family, friends and fans in a group #PeaceandLove moment at Noon, then tossed wristbands into the crowd. Cake was presented on stage and everyone joined together to sing Happy Birthday.

WHEN: Sunday, July 7, 2019

WHERE: Capitol Records Tower, 1750 N Vine St, Los Angeles, CA, 90028

More about this year’s event sponsors:

The David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace - promotes world peace every day by teaching meditation to at risk people all over the planet. Founded by film director and Transcendental Meditation practitioner David Lynch in 2005 to fund the teaching of TM, it is the same meditation Ringo practices and was taught by the Maharishi and exemplifies Peace and Love in action. The evidence-based TM technique is life changing for the good by improving health, cognitive capabilities and performance in life. Extensive published research has found TM markedly reduces stress and stress-related disorders, including anxiety, depression, alcohol and drug misuse, and violent behaviors while also improving brain and cognitive functioning, grade point average and test scores. www.davidlynchfoundation.org

Life is Good – Life is Good is a positive lifestyle and apparel brand on a mission to spread the power of optimism. In celebration of their 25th Anniversary, Life is Good started the #SomethingGood movement to combat the daily barrage of negativity in the world by encouraging people to simply share #SomethingGood. Their hope is to add more optimism into the world by shifting the cultural conversation away from the negative and focus on growing the good. For every share, $1 will be donated to the Life is Good Kids Foundation, with a goal of inspiring one million shares. Uniting Ringo’s passion to generate a global wave of peace & love with the brand’s mission to spread optimism, together they jointly created a special-edition Life is Good x Ringo Starr Peace & Love T-shirt. The new tees will be available in July on Lifeisgood.com and at select Ringo Starr concerts this summer. www.lifeisgood.com

My Husband and I have been together for 3years, we started having issues this year and we both broke up , after our fight over his cheating habits which they all say it's not their fault but I was the one getting hurt for it . I was upset over the whole issue that I had to call for the separation but I felt really bad. The separation really had effects on my daughter who had to live away from her father that I had to think of a way to settle things out and find solution to my husband's awkward behavior. I found out about a spell caster  (Dr gbojie  ) on this site (  http://gbojiespiritualtemple.website2.me     ) who helped me with the problem to make my spouse come back to me and make him stop cheating. Soon, Richard came back to me begging at Sicily where I stayed after our divorce and I told him he has to show me he has changed for me to believe him. He came back twice after that day to Sicily begging me to have him back. Its been 1 month  now since my husband came back to me and we have been living together since that day. I believe this man can also help you too in getting your Ex lover back and also solve other problems  His email address is ( gbojiespiritualtemple@gmail.com  or gbojiespiritualtemple@yahoo.com ) also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2349066410185
