When we did our lecture in Istanbul, the room was packed with wonderful Turkish people who were interested in alternative information and truth. As I spoke, I noticed a man in the audience who was sitting with his girlfriend. They were a beautiful pair. That sat behind my Romanian friends who had traveled to Istanbul to see me.
There was something about this man that was energetic and mysterious. He reminded me of someone. Something. What?
After the lecture, as usual, I was mobbed by the people. This man and his female friend came over to me. They introduced themselves. He was a good friend of my sponsor, Farah Yurdouzu. Farah is well-known around the world as a Turkish paranormal investigator and TV hostess on Bengu Turk, the main TV station in Turkey.
The man is Cenk Yuksel. He is a very famous singer/ entertainer in Turkey. He sings in several languages and has performed all over Turkey, Europe and even in NYC. We did a selfie. We have remained friends. He is a counter tenor/ tenor, known in the music world as angelic in sound.
To me, his voice is amazing. He should be a global mega-star! I could listen to his angelic voice all day. He can sing in Turkish, English, Italian, Greek, Arabic, Spanish, and French. Not only is he talented, he is kind, considerate, humane, and determined to make this planet wonderful for all people.
Below I post Cenk in his own words. I also post several of his videos, which I encourage all of you to see and hear. What is even more amazing, is that his birthday is August 12—Montauk Day! That makes him extremely interdimensional. More so, his family origins are from Russia, like mine! How more perfect can he be!! J
