BABA YETU

“Our Father”

I’m so happy I found this song.

I had never heard about it until an episode of America’s Got Talent Show where ‘Angel City Chorale‘ performed a cover.

What an amazing song!

Here’s Alex Boye’s version.

Baba Yetu” (Swahili: “Our Father“) is the theme song for the 2005 video game, Civilization IV. It was composed by Christopher Tin, and performed by Ron Ragin and the Stanford Talisman.

For its re-release in Tin’s debut album Calling All Dawns, it was performed by the Soweto Gospel Choir. The song, when rereleased, became the first piece of video game music to be nominated and win a Grammy Award.

This message is why Boyé believes he personally felt a deep connection to this particular song

“When my family found out I joined the church at the age of 16, I was kicked out of my house. That night, I walked the streets of London in tears clinging to the Book of Mormon like my life depended on it. It was the only thing constant left in my life,” Boyé said. “Whilst walking the streets homeless, I would recite the Lord’s Prayer and it became a source of deep comfort to me.”

Pink and Daughter Willow Cover ‘A Million Dreams’ From ‘The Greatest Showman: Reimagined’

Tearjerker alert! 

Pink and daughter Willow shared a special moment together – and it was all in the name of music!

Famous Celebrity Families
Atlantic Records posted a video of the mother-daughter duo in the studio covering “A Million Dreams” from The Greatest Showman: Reimagined.

In the clip, Pink, 39, and her 7-year-old daughter with husband Carey Hart engage in in some silly banter before Pink tells her daughter,

“You’re fun, I’m glad I had you.”

(Pink and her husband of 12 years also share son 22-month-old son Jameson.)

Barbra Streisand …. “🎼🎼 Directs Her First Music Video for ‘Don’t Lie to Me’ 🎼🎼 …. “!!

 “Don’t Lie to Me”

Barbra is Watching Drumpf

One of my of all time, favorite music icons is using her platform to express her feelings about the reality which the ‘squatter in the White House’ has with the truth and with facts.

One awesome voice speaking for many of us!! 

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Barbra Streisand is always watching Drumpf 

When we spoke, she had just tweeted about him and read it aloud:

“All President Trump cares about is winning.

He said it during his campaign, and he says it now.

But what do we all lose as he wins?”

Streisand, no stranger to politics throughout her career, is releasing her first album of original songs since 2005, called Walls, on November 2.

Late last month, she released the album’s first single, “Don’t Lie to Me,” which is a direct address to the president. And on Tuesday, Streisand released the music video – the first she’s ever directed – complete with images of protests and even a sign somewhere in there that says “Stop Kavanaugh.”

Barb2

“I’m just so concerned with our country and the world,” she said. “When I say in the song ‘we all lose,’ do we lose our integrity as a nation? Do we lose our reputation in the world? One of the songs talks about a beacon of light, and ‘Lady Liberty’ talked about the danger in the sound of silence, when people don’t speak up, when people don’t vote. And now we have a leader who can’t be trusted. The way he pushed Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court to protect himself is unconscionable; we have a leader and now a Supreme Court justice who tells lies.”

GoldSwirl

She added that it’s the young people of this country who are already living out the message of her new album and who have already set the example of what good activism looks like.

“As I say in the booklet of the new album, I’ve been especially moved by the young people in the United States who have found their voice and are demanding to be heard,” she said.

“They’re more interested in building bridges than walls; they are the very definition of hope.

They’re on my mind, and I dedicate this album to them.”

Till It Happens to You

In view of the current emotional times that women are going through in this very moment,  I would like to share these videos about the very topic that is tearing apart this nation.

Lady Gaga and Diane Warren wrote this song together.

 It’s timeless!

“If someone is assaulted or experiences trauma, there is science and scientific proof, it’s biology, that people change.

The brain changes. And literally what it does is it takes the trauma and it puts it in a box, and it files it away and shuts it so that we can survive the pain,” Gaga said emphatically.

“It also does a lot of other things, it can cause body pains, baseline elevations in anxiety, it can cause complete avoidance of wanting to even remember or think about what happened to you,” she continued.

Simon Cowell gives opera singer Daniel Emmet an impossible challenge on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Classical crossover singer Daniel Emmet thought that he was sure to sail through his audition for “America’s Got Talent.”

But as we saw on the June 19 episode of “AGT,” head judge Simon Cowell had something else in mind for this 25-year-old singer, who intended to perform an original song that was a mashup of opera and pop. He had barely begun this tune, which came across as bland and boring, when judge Simon Cowell cut him off and requested that he sing a different song.

When Emmet admitted he had not come prepared with an alternate, Cowell seemed crossed. He dispatched him from the stage and gave him just one hour to learn another song, the Il Divo hit “Passera.”

The visibly nervous neophyte returned in the appointed 60 minutes and proceeded to wow the audience, the panel and even himself with his rendition of this Italian aria.

KYLA JADE

THIS IS ME

What a voice! What a talent!

Per her own admission, the song is perfect for her as it expresses her personal feelings. In the live show, Kyla spoke of a comment in her social media:

“Kyla has an amazing voice but I don’t know if I can watch her in a concert.”

Very painful for her because she’s has feelings of poor self esteem and her personal experiences haven’t all been rosy.

Her talent shines through!

Enjoy her performance!!

Tuesday night, May 1, 2018, on “The Voice,” Team Alicia Keys took a break from the competition to rock out to The Rolling Stones‘ “Gimme Shelter” during the live Top 11 results episode.

Britton Buchanan, Christiana Danielle and Jackie Foster accompanied their Grammy-winning coach Keys in an energetic rendition of the rock classic in front of the other judges and the lively studio audience.

Gimme Shelter” was written by the Rolling Stones’ lead vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, the band’s primary songwriting team. Richards began working on the song’s signature opening riff in London whilst Jagger was away filming Performance. As released, the song begins with Richards performing a guitar intro, soon joined by Jagger’s lead vocal.

Of Let It Bleed‘s bleak world view, Jagger said in a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone magazine:

Well, it’s a very rough, very violent era. The Vietnam War. Violence on the screens, pillage and burning. And Vietnam was not war as we knew it in the conventional sense. The thing about Vietnam was that it wasn’t like World War II, and it wasn’t like Korea, and it wasn’t like the Gulf War. It was a real nasty war, and people didn’t like it.

People objected and people didn’t want to fight it …

That’s a kind of end-of-the-world song, really.

It’s apocalypse; the whole record’s like that.

Inspired by a true story, a working-class community is awakened when its high school theater program takes on an unconventional new leader

As dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli takes over the lagging department, he encourages his students to unleash their creativity and explore new means of self-expression.

Rise - Season 1

But even though the students discover talents and ambitions they never knew they had, not everyone in town is thrilled. Upset by challenges brought by change, enraged faculty and skeptical parents contest Mr. Mazzu’s galvanizing efforts.

But with passionate fervor running through the town’s veins, no one can deny a revolution is underway.
