About the Author
Isaias Gamboa was born in San José, Costa Rica to parents of Spanish and African ancestry. He was born of Jewish lineage but in America, was raised in both Baptist and Catholic traditions - being the respective religious traditions of his parents. He self-describes himself as a faithful, devout follower of Jesus Christ and student of the Holy Bible. In the early 1960's, carrying a trunkful of rich culture with them, his family emigrated to the US making their home in the West Adams area of Los Angeles, California. Isaias was raised by devoutly Christian parents of different races, who believed that love, kindness and compassion for the poor and needy were the only true measures of divine faith and discipleship. Throughout his childhood, he travelled to many countries with his family and witnessed his parents demonstrating many acts of love and kindness to the poor and needy. Since 1999, Isaias has travelled to many Latin American countries in expression of his own personal love and devotion to the poor, needy, abused, disenfranchised and marginalized. He has even had automatic weapons held to his head in this pursuit. In 2010, while in Brazil to donate toys and clothing to the poor, he formed a strong relationship with three orphanages, which would form the basis for the organizational establishment of the, We Shall Overcome Foundation in 2012. Isaias has been blessed with a 30-year career as a recording artist, music-producer, music-publisher, songwriter, recording engineer, musician and arranger. His credits include artists such as, The Temptations, Janet Jackson, Tupac, Gladys Knight, Bamboleo and more. He is a 35 year member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). In 2012 he authored the book, "We Shall Overcome: Sacred Song on the Devil's Tongue". This book is a comprehensive guide on the history of We Shall Overcome and the biography of, Louise Shropshire--the original author of, the freedom song, "We Shall Overcome". The book is a compendium describing the disturbing, previously undiscovered details surrounding the true origins of "We Shall Overcome" and explores the historical attitudes of Black-exploitation, subjugation and racism in America by non culture-bearers. Isaias is also a certified carpenter, licensed Christian minister and competitive youth soccer coach, who dedicates much of his time to humanitarian efforts in the US, Brazil and Costa Rica.
