Copyright: December 19, 1999By: Laura DeniCLICK HERE FOR COMMENT SECTION ANGELS UNAWARE MASTER OF AVIGNON The Guardian Angel Everybody can use a little help. The power of angels has been documented since the beginning oftime. The word Angel is Greek and means messenger.Angels are said to be immortal spirits that live in Heaven. Dionysus the Areopagite in the A.D.400s set up a ranking of heavenly beings. He believed there were nine orders, of which angelswere the lowest and seraphim the highest. As St. Augustine put it: "Every visible thing in theworld is put in the charge of an angel." Many souls are coming forth to proclaim that their liveshave been touched by the phenomenon of angel miracles. GEORGE JONES GEORGE JONES believes angels were watching over him after he had his life threatening wreck last March inFranklin, Tenn.As of way of "thanking the angels" he's recorded a song with gospel queen Vestal Goodman,called Angel Band. The bridge abutment on highway 96 in Williamson Country whereGeorge wrecked his Lexus SUV is the setting for the song's video. Jones opens in Las Vegas inFebruary. DONNY OSMOND was in theshower when he heard an unfamiliar voice clearly tell him - 'Go check on your son.' Ignoring thevoice Osmond again heard - 'Go check on your son.' Again, the performer continued with hisshower. The third time a more persistent voice said - Go check on your son. Osmond gotout of the shower and found that his small son had found an apple, bit into it and was choking onthe peel. The boy had turned blue. Osmond pulled the peel from his son's throat and saved theboy's life. "I know angels exist," strongly stated Osmond. "We all have guardian angels."CHERYL LADD CHERYL LADD Without a guardian angel the former Charlie's Angels stars declared, "I would have beendead."The angel encounter took place in front of her friend's house.Cheryl has just walked out of thehouse and was at the street curb. "I was walking to my car and, as I was about to step into thestreet, someone said, - Cheryl! - and I turned around. A car zoomed by at about 100 miles anhour. But, when I looked - no one was there!""I went back in the house and asked if someone hadcalled my name. She said - No!" The North Dakota native says she "knows there are angels. Noquestion! An angel saved my life." RICHARD KARN who played TimAllen's Tool Time buddy Al Borland on Home Improvement was living in New York in1983 when he received the news that his mother had breast cancer. Devastated, he went intodenial. "One day an angel touched my shoulder. I just stood up and I knew I had to go home. Idiscovered that Mom had been trying to shield me from the truth. She'd been telling me she wasgoing out, meeting people. But she was really bedridden. Three days later, I was with her whenshe passed away. I know it was an angel that led me to her side."DELLA REESE DELLA REESE credits her deceased mother with returning to earth as Della's guardian angel and saving her life.Reese was nearly killed instantly in a freak accident that happened in 1969. Thinking a slidingglass door was open, Della actually crashed right through the door, falling on top of the jaggedbottom piece. The more she tried to changed position the deeper the glass cut. A remaining piecebroke loose and was about to slice her neck. "A split second before that top glass plunged down,my mother Nellie, who died in 1949, reached around from behind me taking hold of my head andshoulders, and lifted me up onto my feet and told me to sit down in a chair."RODNEY DANGERFIELD thecomedian who prides himself on getting no respect now feels his new CD He is gettingsome angelic respect. The religious CD which "talks about God," according to the comedian, hasan amazing paranormal quality and something good happens to everyone who hears it. This timethe comic isn't clowning around. CY COLEMAN: CAMPAIGNINGCOMPOSER CY COLEMAN. Cy Coleman has written scores that have distinguished Broadway musicals for three decades. Inthis second of a two-part interview the composer/producer, who is an ASCAP board member,discusses hot button items on his personal short list including; the Internet, royalties, and the critics. "I'm vice president of ASCAP and we're constantly fighting for our copyrights," hedeclared."What I see is that our rights are diminishing. That is very important, because you're not going toget anybody to become a writer if they're not be able to make a living," he fumed."The Internet is a big problem," continued Coleman. "I feel that we have to find a way of gettingpaid. We also have to educate the public to know that this is somebody's effort - and you getpaid.ADOLPH GREEN, BETTY COMDEN AND CYTheir collaborations included The Will Rogers Follies. "You pay - just like you pay for a suit of clothes. Writing is not a whim. We all studied, workhard and work to support our families."Eventually, there will be a lot of lawsuits regarding the free download of music," hespeculated. "Nobody does anything for free. I don't know why intellectual property law is sucha mystery, but it is."It's a shame and that's why we have to go to Washington and have some laws passed. We havelaws in place and we have people who are championing us, but we need more laws passed. Thereare too many people who want their own salaries, but deny us ours."Part of the problem is enforcing the laws. We had a guy from M.I.T talk to us and he said -"Yeah, we're stealing your work, but that way it gets to a broader range of people so they areeducated.MIMI QUILLIN, ALLISON WILLIAMS, BEBENEUWIRTH, AND STEPHANIE POPE perform Big Spender from the 1986 revival ofSweet Charity. Coleman wants composers to get their fair share of theloot. "I said - How would you like your work to be done that way? It's very important or thiscountry is going to be importing one of our biggest exports - music - because our music is allgoing to other countries."We were talking about coding on the Internet and the man from M.I.T said - Well, you cancode it, but there is no lock that hasn't been picked."But they are going to have to find some way of protecting our rights," heemphasized. "It is a hard problem. You don't want to see the creativity dry up in this country. Wehave to protect the creative talents the same way we would protect the steel industry."People seem to look at the problem one of two ways: One way is - they don't have any respectfor it. The other attitude is - Oh, they are all billionaires. They look at the Beatles or they look atIrving Berlin. The average person who is writing is having trouble paying his rent. You knowhow far it is in between hits? Even if they get one? That's the important thing!MICHAEL CRAWFORD takes a tumble performing"Black and White" from Barnum. Coleman doesn't want writers taking a financial tumblebecause they don't get proper royalties."We're trying to safeguard those rights. Writers deserve compensation for their work. Somebodymakes money off of their work and they deserve to be paid."As for Coleman he doesn't do a project unless he's " in love with it in some way."He's given his heart to several. "There is one coming with Larry Gelbart and David Zippel, whichis going to be Napoleon and Josephine. Then there is another one - an old one that hastaken a lot of time - 13 Days to Broadway. There is one I wrote with Michael Stewart justbefore he died, Nothing But the Truth.Coleman has developed mixed feelings about the critics."Unfortunately, we don't have anybody critiquing the critics," he lamented. "We're getting these gossipy kind of reviews before we start. The fact of the matter is, not everyone whocritiques is qualified to do it. Anybody that gets up and has an opinion can vilify. There were a lotof critics that I had a lot of respect for. They have dwindled in numbers. Critics putting in theirown agendas is getting a little boring. People who come in with their own agendas and criticizeaccording to those agendas are not really equipped to criticize what is on the stage," hecharged.Recently one of Coleman's efforts, Exactly Like You, received some critical barbs."That was a spoof," he answered about the show and the critics that didn't know the differencebetween a farce and a musical comedy. The Life is a great show," said the composer defending his Broadway show that will openin London. "Some of the critics didn't like it because it was a show about prostitution. We gotcriticized because we were showing 42nd Street the way it was. We were doing inter-city life.And, we called it The Life. SCENE FROM THE LIFE"Some of the reviews were amazing to me. Some were outlandish and some were wonderful," herecalled. "We won every prize with the exception of the Tony." Quipped the composer, "I guess - that's life."As to whether there is a place for new composers, the veteran thinks the up and comers have aneasier time of it than the established tunesmiths."There is always room for new composers," said Coleman who began his own career as a childprodigy. The son of immigrants, Coleman's voice resonated with pride when he discussed hismother. "My mother was a remarkable woman. She was an immigrant, but she was a businesswoman and she drove a car!"CY COLEMAN AND DOROTHYFIELDS. His mother, who owned a building in the Bronx, had a border who skipped out on the rent,leaving behind a piano. Cy's mother carted the piano into the family residence where four-year-oldCy instantly became infatuated with those 88 key, displaying a talent what wasn't fullyappreciated by his carpenter father, who nailed the lid shut in order to obtain some quiet aroundthe house.The determined carpenter's son managed to get the lid undone. Harmony was restored when thefamily milk man suggested piano lessons, and then encouraged the family to permit Cy to turnpro. Between the ages of six and nine Coleman was performing at the piano in Steinway, Townand Carnegie Halls. The guy who wrote Witchcraft and The Best is Yet To Comethinks of himself first and foremost as a piano player. "There are people who have written wonderful music that don't go to school. I just happened togo to school and I'm glad I did," said the well-educated composer, who expressed an opinion ofprejudice towards the old guard.JAMES NAUGHTON AND GREGG EDELMAN asthe gum shoe and the scribe doing the witty You're Nothing Without Me from City ofAngeles. Cy used some of his profits to build a swimming pool "There is more room for new composers than old composers," he charged. "There is a prejudiceagainst the old guard. It's always get the broom and sweep them out - bring in the new - which isunfortunate, because you can combine the two. When I got started I worked with DorothyFields," he said of the late gifted lyricist who teamed with Coleman on Sweet Charity, andTwo for the See Saw."She was quite a few years my senior. And, out of that came Sweet Charity. There is toomuch corporate money involved. It's like the rest of the world. It's getting more and moreconcentrated in the hands of a few.That doesn't mean Coleman is crying poor mouth. Those with the hits have perks notpermitted by poverty. He's even named the rewards he's reaped."I have a good life. I have a house in South Hampton. I go out to the beach and play tennis. Ihave a Sweet Charity pool, a City of Angeles tennis court, a Barnumhot tub, and The Will Rogers home improvements in my house in the city. If you make afew bucks, do something with it. Enjoy it."
