Glennis Grace (born as Glenda Hulita Elisabeth Batta, 19 June 1978, Amsterdam) is a singer from the Netherlands who in 2005 won the national selection in the Netherlands for the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 for the nation. Grace’s song was the ballad “My Impossible Dream“, but she did not advance to the final.

She was discovered after she won a Dutch TV talent show where she performed Whitney Houston’s “One Moment in Time”. In April 2011 she reached the top of the Dutch singles chart with a rendition of “Afscheid”, a 1998 hit of the band Volumia!. She appeared on the 13th season of America’s Got Talent in 2018.

Her first performance on America’s Got Talent was a cover from Whitney Houston’s “Run To You”.

… and the rest, you will see for yourself!

Earlier in the AGT season, the glamorous singer performed “Run to You” by Whitney Houston for her audition, then followed up with “Nothing Compares 2 U“.

Grace showed her earlier performances were no flukes when she nailed the inspiration song with a touch of soul and some crowd-pleasing power-notes.

Janet Jackson and Daddy Yankee …. “💕🎼 ‘MADE FOR NOW’ …. Awesome Collaboration …. 🎼💕…. “!!

~~August 21, 2018~~ 

JANET JACKSON AND DADDY YANKEE

Janet needs no introduction. She’s known worldwide of the Jacksons’ family fame.

Daddy Yankee needs no intro in the world of reggaeton.

Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez (born February 3, 1977), known by his stage name Daddy Yankee, is a Puerto Rican singer, songwriter, rapper, actor, and record producer. Ayala was born in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico, and was raised in the neighborhood of Villa Kennedy Housing Projects.

Daddy Yankee is the artist who coined the word Reggaeton in 1994 to describe the new music genre that was emerging from Puerto Rico.

Janet Jackson and Daddy Yankee performed “Made for Now,” their new collaboration, for the very first time on television Friday night (Aug. 18). The pair took their own advice and moved their bodies with the upbeat song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

By Isabelia Herrera

Never in a million years could we have dreamed up a collab between Janet Jackson and Daddy Yankee, but alas, it’s 2018 and anything is possible in a post-Despacito universe. After they were spotted filming the video last month in New York, the reggaeton icon and pop titan have finally unleashed “Made for Now,” which finds the pair floating through the streets of Brooklyn with a troupe of international dancers from Ghana, Nigeria, Grenada, and Trinidad.

As we previously reported, the production of “Made for Now” harnesses Afrobeats’ global pop explosion, and dancers are dressed in bold, colorful prints. The Big Boss hops in towards the end of the track to drop off some posi vibes and underscore the song’s message of celebrating the present moment.

Jackson and Yankee worked on the music video with famed director Dave Meyers, who has collaborated with Missy Elliott, Britney Spears, Kendrick Lamar, and more. The two legends are set to perform the new song together on The Tonight Show on Friday.

ARETHA FRANKLIN …. “💞🎼 Queen of Soul Replaces Pavarotti …. Singing ‘NESSUN DORMA’ 🎼💞 …. “!!

~~August 17, 2018~~

ARETHA FRANKLIN

 Nessun Dorma

What can I say?

Words fail me. Let the video speak for itself.

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Aretha Franklin performs at the Festival of Families as Pope Francis looks on Sept. 26, 2015 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

BUT BEFORE … 

One amazing performance came in 1998.

It was 30 minutes into the 1998 Grammy Awards and Gary Simmons, the assistant to the show’s co-producer, Tisha Fein, got a phone call:

Luciano Pavarotti would not be performing.

Franklin had been booked on the show to perform a Blues Brothers number with Dan Aykroyd, John Goodman and Jim Belushi. Two nights before, however, she had actually performed “Nessun Dorma” in honor of Pavarotti at a Music Cares dinner. The Grammys producer had an empty hole where Pavarotti’s performance was supposed to be, crossing into the third hour of the show.

Could she possibly …?

Aret

Luciano Pavarotti, too unwell to perform at the Grammy Awards, was replaced at the last minute by the Queen of Soul herself, who was a friend of the opera singer.

However, instead of opting for one of her own hits, Franklin stuck with the aria most synonymous with Pavarotti, “Nessun Dorma”.

More than a billion viewers watched live on TV  across the world on as Franklin hit the Puccini number’s signature high B with ease, stunning the 1998 Grammy Awards audience in Radio City Music Hall and sending the jaws of artists including Celine Dion to the floor.

Several years later, Franklin performed the track yet again – this time for Pope Francis at a show in Philadelphia.

BRIAN KING JOSEPH 

~Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent has begun~

I’m amazed at this performer’s talent and his personal story.

He started playing the violin as a child. He showed incredible talent and continued down his musical path.

As life has it, as an adult, he has been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy.

His hands and feet are affected by this chronic condition.

He doesn’t know how long he will be able to continue playing the violin.

These performances have caught my heart!

He auditioned and was selected at the Judges Cut for the live shows. 

Hope you enjoy it!

JAXON WILLARD

~WORLD OF DANCE 2018~

The 2018 season is at the duels portion.

This  young, talented kid is out of this world.

As J-Lo said ‘god has given him wings to fly’.

Enjoy the video.

Jaxon Willard brought the ‘World of Dance’ judges to tears with this routine about his anger towards his birth mother

“It’s about my feelings towards my birth mom and how I was angry and felt abandoned by her,” said teenager Jaxon Willard about what inspired his contemporary solo routine during The Duels on “World of Dance.”

The black competitor, who was adopted into a white family, has struggled with his feelings about the family he came from and how to express those feelings to the family he now has, but he channeled those feelings into the highest scoring performance of the night.

~Ne-Yo~

“I’m looking around at the crowd – you got people in here crying, brother … [Jaxon’s adoptive mother] should be so proud of this guy. I understand the concept of being humble, and I can tell you’re so humble and there’s so much humility in you. But I need you to walk with your chest out and your back straight, brother. There is so much power in you. Listen, I’ll get into the performance now. You are the epitome of power and vulnerability. It’s like you jump in the air and you float. It’s like an effortless thing for you. You are amazing at what you do. I need you to walk in that.”

~Jennifer Lopéz~

“For me, God gives us a set of circumstances in life. Everybody has their story, but then he gives you so much. He gave you so much talent. Honestly he gave you the ability to fly. He gave you wings on your back by giving you your mom, by giving you your family, by giving you this talent, and without your story you wouldn’t be able to be the artist that you are today. There is an elegance to the way you dance, and it is just an honor to watch it.”

~Derek Hough~

“Jaxon, you are a master storyteller. Your ability to own a moment in stillness is unbelievable. You are in tune with yourself, and when you’re in tune with yourself you can create magic, and that’s exactly what you did on this stage. Thank you so much for that performance.”

Playing for Change …. 💕🎼 ‘The Moon’ …. Taimane 🎼💕 Live Outside …. “!!


~~June 23, 2018~~ 

The Moon … Taimane

Just what I need at this moment in time.

Soothing, calming, inspiring music.

I just discovered Taimane.

Enjoy this performance.

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Filmed at the beautiful Kualoa Ranch in Oah’u, Hawai’i, this Live Outside video features Taimane performing her original composition, “The Moon,” alongside Windy Weather (violin) and Jasmine ‘Jazzy’ Skurtu (guitar).

“Being born and raised in Hawai’i, it’s hard not to be inspired by the nature around me,” shares Taimane.

“This song came to me one night when I was laying in my backyard with my dog, looking up at the moon wondering what she must be feeling. I did my best to personify her essence, who she is, and this song arose.”

Let this enchanting song carry you to the moon and beyond with a heart full of peace.

Tainm

 Taimane translates to diamond from Samoan and perfectly reflects the different facets of her nature Ukulele Dance CD music

Whether delicately finger-picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres – from classical to rock to flamenco – and stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawai`i, where she grew up. In addition to performing her own distinctive versions of well-known pieces, Taimane weaves in original compositions that are as far ranging as her musical tastes Ukulele Dance buy CD music.

Her breakout CD, Ukulele Dance features Bach’s ‘Tocatta‘, Lalo Schifrin’s ‘Mission Impossible Theme‘, and pieces she wrote for the planet Neptune and the Moon, as part of her series on the solar system. With the fierceness of a rocker, the grace of a dancer, and the pageantry of a performance artist, Taimane and her music are wowing ever-larger audiences. She lights up rooms wherever she goes, sparkling like the diamond that she is.
