Whilst playing his piano he always imagined himself traveling through space and musical talent soon matched his limitless imagination. His music teachers and professors at various conservatories saw great potential in the young boy and soon realized that Michael Cretu would one day be a great concert pianist. After being sent abroad for further training, the Frankfurt Music Academy praised the young Romanian for his outstanding musical talent. There was no question; He was destined for a future in the world of classical music.
But it all turned out quite differently for him. In the 70s Michael discovered electronic music. It played to both of his strengths, allowing him to express his imagination and musicality in unexpected ways. Naturally, the synthesizer became his new cockpit to steer his spaceship out of the galaxy of classical music and into new planetary systems, new worlds and new music.
Today his cockpit actually resembles a spaceship. In his control room he sits in front of Merlin - an all in one computed mobile studio. Day by day he uses it to steer his way through already discovered and brand new worlds of sound. His excursions usually take him several years but eventually he will always return with new discoveries. This way, over the last 25 years, seven records under the project name Enigma came into being.
There is no other music project comparable to Enigma. None of these labels fit and still all of them do. Each beat shows the unmistakable signature of an artist who refuses to be pigeonholed. The amazing feedback and admiration he has received over the years is surprising given the fact that he never played "the game" like so many others. There have been no screaming fans, no hype and he had always succeeded in keeping his name out of the gossip pages. Despite this, he has still managed to sell 70 million records, reached the top of the charts 60 times and entered the top 10 an impressive 80 times.
He stayed in the Billboard album charts for five years straight, got three Grammy nominations and has achieved Gold and Platinum sales over times. To call Enigma an international phenomenon would be an understatement. This time Michael Cretu wanted to again create something extraordinary.
It represents a new beginning and eternity. In Umm al-Kitab , an 8th-century work of a Ghulat sect, the universe cames into existence because Azazil claims to be like God, but since there can just be one god, Azazil fell into lower spheres until he ends up on earth. Some Islamic scholars denied the possibility of sinning Angels, adherding that Angels always obey God's command and are not able to deviate from His orders. One of the first advocates of this perspection of Angels was Hasan of Basra , who did not just emphasized verses which speaks for absolute obedience of Angels, but also reinterpretated verses against this view.
Thus he depicted Iblis as a jinni and Harut and Marut as ordinary men. Another verse speaking for the Angels impeccability is However according to advocates of fallen angels, these verses can not prove the impeccability for all Angels at any time and in any situation.
Pre-Islamic Arabs believed that fallen angels may descend to earth in the form of men. They may interact with human and even have sexual relations with them. According to a pre-Islamic legend, Jurhum , founder of the tribe by his name, was the son of a union between a fallen angel and a human woman. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This page was last edited on 19 September , at Until he comes to her rescue and suddenly Jasmines life is about angels and demons. She goes from running from her personal demons to running from actual demons. I really liked this book, I have been waiting for a good angel story for a while and Laura really delivered. Jasmine is believable, relatable and a survivor. Laura introduces you to him along with Jasmine and you build your trust with her learning as she does. The quotes at the beginning of every chapter pull you in and the dynamic between Jasmine and Zach keeps you turning the pages.
For more information regarding our reviews please visit our Fansite: I would honestly give this 10 stars if I could! While initially I had a hard time getting into this book I'm honestly glad that I continued reading! Jasmine has had a very rough life all the way thru her graduation.
Falling for an Angel has 77 ratings and 10 reviews. Sarah said: This book had me hooked from the beginning, I simply couldn't put it down! I was forever. In the Abrahamic religions, fallen angels are angels who were expelled from Heaven for showing disobedience and ungratefulness to God. They were originally.
She did not have a stable or support system at home and she became mixed up in the very wrong crowd. I guess, I would say wrong crowd, Jasmine probably wouldn't say that at least at that time. Being with the "wrong crowd" meant that Jasmine was doing things that made her 5 of 5 Stars! Being with the "wrong crowd" meant that Jasmine was doing things that made her feel good although had very bad consequences. However that led her to her guardian angel. Zach was sent to watch over and protect Jasmine but he had a hard time doing this as Jasmine was not making it easy on him.
After time, it got easier, on both of them. As I do not want to spoil this book for you, I will stop there, I honestly hope that you buy this book as you will be very glad that you did, I can certainly hope that there is another one coming that involves Jasmine and Zach, as I cannot wait to read more!
