COLIN KAEPERNICK

TRIUMPHANT RETURN

I must confess I’m not a football fan; I really don’t know much about the game; I really don’t care about it.

However, I do know a lot about Colin Kaepernick.

I respect the man and agree with the peaceful protest and the message that he’s trying to bring to the forefront by using the platform that he had when he was able to play football.

After being shunned for at least two seasons; after continued pressure from the NFL, after continued disparaging from the occupant of the Oval Office, Kap makes a triumphant return!

Take a look.

HOW DID THIS BEGIN?

In a 49ers’ final preseason game, backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided sit on the bench to protest racial inequality and police brutality for the national anthem.

~TAKING A  KNEE~

Former Seahawks player and Green Beret Nate Boyer who talked Kap into making the change. Boyer wrote an open letter to Kaepernick and it caused the two to meet up and discuss America and honoring the anthem.

“Soldiers take a knee in front of a fallen brother’s grave, you know, to show respect. When we’re on a patrol, you know, and we go into a security halt, we take a knee, and we pull security.”

GoldSwirl

It was US Army veteran, Nate Boyer, who suggested to Kaepernick to take a knee as a sign of respect

This is their inspiring story of what can happen when people with different perspectives decide to sit down, have a conversation, and hear each other out.

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem before games in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Critics accused the protest of disrespecting the US flag and military and Drumpf called for players who protested during the anthem to be fired.

Nike released a commercial starring Colin Kaepernick on Wednesday, September 5, following this week’s announcement of a partnership between the two that prompted boycott threats as well as criticism from Drumpf.

Nike and Kaepernick posted the commercial on Twitter and YouTube.

The ad, narrated by Kaepernick, showcases various inspirational sports-related stories, including amateur athletes such as a football-playing homecoming queen and an Ironman participant who lost 120 pounds and recovered from a brain tumor. Professional athletes, including Serena Williams, LeBron James, and the Seattle Seahawks’ Shaquem Griffin (whose left hand was amputated when he was young), are also featured.

Kaepernick narrates the ad, which features a wide range of athletes including inspirational amateurs, Serena Williams, and LeBron James.
Kaepernick is shown only in the closing seconds of the commercial, which does not feature the former NFL player in football gear.

FABULOUS SISTERS

~WORLD OF DANCE 2018~

The 2018 season is at ‘the cut’ portion.

This  group of young, talented ladies are simply out of this world.

They have gone through the qualifiers, the duels and now the cut.

I really wish them the best!

Enjoy the video.

World of Dance” judge Jennifer Lopez and special guest Savion Glover mentored the Junior Team Division contestants during the Cut, and Lopez was a little worried that The Fabulous Sisters from Fukushima, Japan, didn’t have an entirely cohesive routine prepared. But she changed her tune when she saw their complete performance.

They were decked out in regal gold costumes and ruled ferociously from a throne. Imagine if Cersei Lannister from “Game of Thrones” blew up the Sept of Baelor with just the power of urban dance.

~Jennifer Lopez~

“You guys made me tired, and I don’t get tired. Your formations and pictures from our mentoring session went up so much, and I loved that we really made you the focal point of this and it didn’t get lost in the middle of it and it made it so strong. You know, it’s very interesting choreography. It’s so different than anybody else in the competition. Beautiful.”

~Derek Hough~

I thought it was really nice that Jennifer let you borrow her throne. Again, the way you dance the choreography is so amazing. The intensity, and then right when I thought, ‘Oh, this is a great routine,’ you all took a shot of espresso and just went into hyper mode. It was like ‘Whoa!’ The way you used your costume at the end: very simple, but very, very effective. It was one of those ‘ooh’ moments. It was so good.”

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”.

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.
