Burbank, Calif. (PRWEB) December 31, 2014

In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the World Medical Mission Foundation in 2016, Filipino jazz singer, Lourdes Duque Baron, has established the 501(c)(3) Hope For The World Foundation to launch the first annual fundraising campaign.

In 2012, the medical mission traveled to four areas; Surigao, Tagkawayan, Quezon, Lucena, Quezon and Rio Tuba, Palawan. View the Hope For The World Foundation promo here.

The Medical Mission also travels each month to Tecate, Mexico to provide medical treatment and food to those in need at the Trinitarians of Mary Order founded by Mother Lillie, who is also involved in the project. Over the years, the World Medical Mission has helped hundreds of thousands of those in need. Just $10 will feed four children lunch. In December, the mission was able to provide 1,300 to needy children and adults but it is not enough. Tax deductible donations can be processed securely here.



Baron, who recently launched her music career with the release of her debut CD, “Feeling Good At Any Age,” explains her music is a stepping-stone to this greater mission. She explained the medical treatment is so important and that “everybody should have a chance in life.”

Over the next years, the campaign will fund the healthcare mission and subsidize food and medical supplies focusing on children and those in need in the developing world. The programs will advance the organization’s initiatives in all areas of medicine under the direction of Dr. Robinson V.

The goal of the Hope For the World Foundation is to raise $1 million. The goal is an ambitious one, but will be instrumental in the mission’s effort to deliver quality healthcare services to the most vulnerable and impoverished people across the world. The Hope For the World Foundation is committed to fostering partnerships with sponsors and donors in order to support the medical mission as well as providing perishable and non-perishable goods to the community.

Lourdes Duque Baron to Release Second Book Worldwide Early 2015 – Best Sellers

Published by EOTM News Editor on December 11th, 2014 - in Authors, Breaking News, Press Releases

“‘I Called Myself Cassandra’ puts ’50 Shades of Grey’ to shame in reciting the affairs in detail. However, it’s respectful in turning those events toward female empowerment and marital renewal,” says Sofia Landon of Splash Magazines.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 10, 2014

Award-winning author, Lourdes Duque Baron, officially released her second book, “I Called Myself Cassandra,” on June 14, 2014 in a limited-edition hardcover format. The book will be released worldwide on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as other websites, in early Spring 2015 through Friesen Publishing. The book is a real life story of scandal, through the eyes of Baron’s alter ego Cassandra, and follows the falling in and out of love of a young woman who tells a seductive story about her encounters and affairs in her quest to mend her broken heart.

Lourdes Duque Baron

As an accomplished author of two books, Baron is refreshingly candid about the realities and dark past of her life. In the book, Baron’s alter ego, Cassandra, details the several torrid affairs she sought out with younger men. The book chronicles a dark chapter of Baron’s life when she was estranged from her husband, who was cheating on her. The stories in the book are true from her life; she lived every page of the book. Baron explains, “It’s a memory of my reality.”

Baron talks about the pain she felt as a result of her husband’s infidelities. “There were times when the pain was unbearable. Usually, those were the times when I foolishly tried to mask this pain with the temporary physical bliss and false validation I received from men.”

Sofia Landon of Splash Magazines described the book; “ ‘I Called Myself Cassandra’ puts ’50 Shades of Grey’ to shame in reciting the affairs in detail. However, it’s respectful in turning those events toward female empowerment and marital renewal.”

When Baron sits back to survey her experiences from this chapter in her life, the emotion that rises is one of gratitude. “I Called Myself Cassandra” details the wrong turns and heartaches that have allowed her to recognize the gifts in her life and the message of a new sunrise.

Baron’s other projects include an upcoming feature film in development; an adaptation of her book “Scripted In Heaven.” Visit the Scripted In Heaven Film Official Web Site.

In Wake of the Ebola Scare, Obama Signs Executive Order to Detain Americans Showing Signs of Acute Respiratory Illness

By Carla B.

Follow us: @eotmonline on Twitter| eotm.media on Facebook

In the midst of the Ebola scare, President Barack Obama has signed an amendment to an executive order that would allow him to mandate the apprehension and detention of Americans who show signs of acute respiratory illness. This replaces subsection (b) of the original Bush executive order which referred only to SARS.

Obama’s change allows for the detention of Americans who display, “Severe acute respiratory syndromes,” which are typically associated with high fever, pneumonia, flu, etc — and are capable of being transmitted person to person, and that either are causing or have potential to cause a pandemic, or upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality if not properly controlled.

“Feeling Good At Any Age” Musician Lourdes Duque Baron Establishes ‘Hope For The World Foundation’

By Tawanda Cawthon

Singer, Award Winning Author and Humanitarian Lourdes Duque Baron has established ‘The Hope For The World Foundation’ and plans to launch a high profile celebrity studded fundraising campaign to benefit ‘The World Medical Mission Foundation’. The missions infrastructure is non-profit and has provided medical and surgical treatment throughout the Philippines and Mexico, assisting poverty stricken individuals for over 28 years, with the goal of helping ensure people around the globe receive the medical treatment they need, when they need it.

“During a time when health insurance and medical care is non existent in some areas, and at an all-time high in others, ‘The Hope For The World Foundation,’ couldn’t have come at a better time. Lourdes is a gem, truly a Godsend,” Carla B., Founder of EOTM Media Group said.


The extravaganza is slated for January 2015 at Boulevard 3 in Hollywood, California. The charity event will raise funds for the mission, helping to continue its life’s work, doing their part to help change the world, wherever it’s needed the most.

Hope For The World Foundation, which is the first of its kind also aims to take concrete steps to improve lives and to establish best practices in medicine.

Baron, who recently launched her music career defines her music as a “stepping-stone” to this greater mission. Noting, medical treatment is so important and that “everybody should have a chance in life.”

More than 50 percent of revenues from Ms. Baron’s music will go directly toward the lifesaving medical mission, and the philanthropist is not stopping there. Over the next  couple of years the admirable crusade will continue to fund the mission, focusing on children and those in need in the developing world.

The programs will also advance the organization’s initiatives in all areas of medicine under the direction of Dr. Robinson V. Baron and their daughter, Stephanie Baron, P.A.-C, Director of the medical mission.

Lourdes Duque Baron’s “Feeling Good At Any Age” Red Carpet Release Review – #NewMusic #Grammys

67 year old Filipino crooner, Lourdes Duque Baron, under the production of multi-platinum and Billboard Award winning music producer, Andrew Lane, released her debut CD called “Feeling Good At Any Age” at a red carpet event attended by music’s elite including Ron Ellington Shy (The Drifters) and Brittany Glodean (granddaughter of the legendary Barry White).

Glendale, Calif. (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

At the age of 67, Filipino crooner, Lourdes Duque Baron, under the production of multi-platinum and Billboard Award winning music producer, Andrew Lane, released her debut CD called “Feeling Good At Any Age” at a red carpet event attended by music’s elite. The event was held at a mansion in Glendale on Saturday, July 12, 2014 and was live streamed by Aaron Sanchez, Live with Aaron and Kelly, KCAA NBC News Radio. Baron performed a few of her songs from the CD. Also performing was cellist Matthew John. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Ron Ellington Shy (The Drifters) surprised the crowd with an impromptu performance with Baron and Lane accompanying on keyboards.

Baron chose the songs on the CD to correspond to chapters in her life and following the story in her new book “I Called Myself Cassandra.” Baron’s smoky and sultry arrangements parallel her struggles during a dark period when she was estranged from her husband and chronicled in her book – detailing the wrong turns and heartaches that have allowed her to recognize the gifts in her life and the message of a new sunrise. The songs in her debut album echo these same experiences. “I wanted to make the songs of this album, including ‘Feeling Good,’ like they’re chapters in a book, to try to really capture what I’m thinking about in that season of life,” she explains. “This record, to me, is probably one of the most interesting subject-wise. It’s a bit retrospective and honors musicians and classics of the past.”

With the official release of the Filipino-singer’s album, others will discover what Lane calls “an amalgam of sound that is genuinely fresh to the ears.” Baron’s singular ability to blend tradition with contemporary color comes to the fore on this set of beguiling cover songs, which simultaneously capture the vintage, sepia-toned feel of her experiences with smoky and sultry sophistication of smooth jazz.

Two songs from the CD, “Me and Mr Jones” and “(Just Like) Starting Over” were recorded with AKNU, the group who enraptured Simon Cowell on the X-Factor in 2013. Music producer and songwriter, Sam Salter performed background vocals for several of the tracks. Salter has also written for multi-platinum music groups and artists such as Omarion, Tabu from the Black Eyed Peas, and Destiny’s Child. Fellow producer, Marquis Bell, also performed background vocals.

Baron’s smooth voice evokes a sense of nostalgia in “Cry Me A River,” “Starting Over,” “Me and Mr. Jones,” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.” Her voice is reminiscent of 40s or 50s jazz and blues singers performing in smoky venues into a vintage microphone. The CD is available on MTV and iTunes and a music video for “Me and Mr. Jones” is available on Vevo. Listen to all of the songs on Lourdes Duque Baron’s MTV page here.

Also attending the event was the granddaughter of the legendary Barry White, Brittany Glodean. Baron’s CD inspired Glodean, who is launching her own singing career this year. Glodean explained, “It is such an honor to be a part of an event where the love of music is so passionate! From the live band to Lou’s voice, it was an amazing experience! I am so blessed to be able to share the day with so many other artists.”

Many young artists attended the event and also commented on how inspired they were by Baron beginning a singing career at 67 years old. Cellist Matthew John shared, “Her talent, her awesome music videos, the books [she] wrote, and how [she] is an inspiration for all of us to pursue our dreams at any age.” His message to Baron, “Thank you for sharing your beautiful life!”

Also in attendance was spoken word music artist Angel Berry, twin singers Bianca and Chiara D’Ambrosio, pop singer, Anthuhny and Janine Tugonon, Miss Philippines 2012. Directors of Baron’s music video for “Me and Mr Jones,” Bayou Bennett and Daniel Lir (Dolce Films) filmed the event as part of a documentary they are producing on Baron’s life for network television.
