Isaac Haile Selassie
is the real deal and his global
journey is one of intrigue and inspiration. Born in a rural area of
Ethiopia, his mother passed away before he was a year old and unable to
care for him, his father brought him to the capital city, Addis Ababa
and gave him over to the care of the late Emperor, Haile Selassie I.
Isaac was placed in His Imperial Majesty's boarding school, which the
Emperor himself established, and was overseen personally by His Majesty
and in close proximity to the palace. Isaac's last name is Haile
Selassie because he was raised by Haile Selassie I. When the Emperor was
deposed, Ethiopia was thrown into political turmoil and Isaac left his
country by foot, walking through the desert and until he reached Sudan,
where one night he met a group of other Ethiopians who were listening to
Bob Marley, a pivotal moment in Isaac's life. Marley's message of love
and peace resonated within Isaac's own experience of dealing with life's
harsh realities first hand. From that point on, Isaac (now based in Los
Angeles) has been committed to promoting harmony among people around
the world and ending racism through the power of his music and lyrics.
