The Earth Anthem penned by poet-diplomat Abhay K was translated into Portuguese and launched in Brasilia to commemorate World Environment Day.

Abhay had written the anthem in 2008, inspired by the Upanishads and the image of the Earth taken by the Apollo 17 crew. He penned it in Russia’s St Petersburg and so far it has been translated into 30 languages.

According to IANS, he said,

“Whichever country we come from, we all have our planet in common. A tribute to her in the form of an anthem, therefore, should be able to find favour with people from all countries. Such an anthem will not only connect all of us across the world through a common musical thread but will also inspire the next generation to put the planet before themselves.”

For his Earth Anthem, he was termed ‘inspiring’ by UNESCO, Habitat for Humanity, and many others. He has plans of continuing the the Earth Anthem project by collaborating with the world’s leading musicians and singers to create consecutive editions.

Ben Platt and Lin-Manuel Miranda …. “🎼🎼 Combined Forces For A ‘March For Our Lives’ Anthem 🎼🎼 …. “!!

FOUND TONIGHT

HamilDrop: Ben Platt & Lin Manuel Miranda Mashup “Found Tonight”

FOR THE KIDS

Found Tonight with Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt and all of Troupe 10036

I’m an ardent fan.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an amazing talent.

His Puerto Rican roots make it even more significant for me.

He has shown immense interest in social causes.

Benjamin Schiff Platt (born September 24, 1993) is an American actor and singer known for originating the role of the title character in the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, a performance for which he has won numerous awards.

Here you have two amazing talents joined for a common cause for the future of the children of this nation.

The heart-stopping anthem released on Monday,  March 19, by Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt to celebrate the “March For Our Lives” gun violence prevention actions this weekend needs no introduction, only some background.

The three-minute song, “Found Tonight,” mashes up Miranda’s “Story Of Tonight” from his smash musical “Hamilton” and the song “You Will Be Found,” from Platt’s star turn in “Dear Evan Hansen,” by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

This means the song draws from one story about teenage revolutionaries, and another about teens triumphing over despair.

The song begins with a rewritten line from “Hamilton” – instead of “we may not live to sing our glory,”

Platt sings, “we may not yet have reached our glory.”

All the proceeds from downloads of the song go to “March For Our Lives,” a gun violence prevention demonstration that will take place on March 24 in Washington DC.

Platt’s extraordinary gift for vulnerability and vocal sublimity are on display here, as is Miranda’s once-in-a-generation passion.

Super Bowl LII National Anthem Performance 🇺🇸 …. P!nk …. There was a Time when I got Chills 🇺🇸 …. “!!


PinkB

~~February 5, 2018~~ 

P!NK

I read somewhere that P!nk watched Whitney Houston’s performance of the national anthem.

It was a famous rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl XXV in 1991.

Since then P!nk wanted to sing then anthem at the super bowl.

… and that she did!

There was a time when listening to this anthem gave me chills.

Not anymore.

The reason I post this today is because P!nk sang at the superbowl and killed it.

Enjoy!

P!nk took the grand stage at Super Bowl LII to sing the national anthem just before kickoff where she paid homage to her “idol,” Whitney Houston.

This Super Bowl holds a special significance to the Grammy-winning artist as she is a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan, having spent the lead-up to the game posting snaps of her children and family rooting for the team.

Pink Nails the National Anthem Before Super Bowl LII, Despite the Flu

Despite a well-publicized battle with the flu in the days before Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia-area native Pink positively nailed the National Anthem.

Clad in a satiny white outfit and with bright blonde hair, the three-time Grammy winner was true to her badass image, removing a throat lozenge just before she began singing (and setting off a torrest of Internet memes in the process).

She played loose with the song’s timing, occasionally hitting a note just inside the tempo set by the accompanying orchestra, but hit every note with ease, at times breaking up a note or toying with the phrasing, possibly in an effort to sidestep the challenges of singing with the flu, but her voice was strong and on-point and she had little trouble holding notes.

Keith Olbermann, #132 …. “🏈 The Truth About Pence’s Despicable NFL Stunt 🏈 …. “!!

PENCE COSTLY, SEE THROUGH, SLEAZY POLITICAL STUNT

AMERICAN NATIONAL PAST TIME

Football is a family of team sports that involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball with the foot to score a goal. Unqualified, the word football is understood to refer to whichever form of football is the most popular in the regional context in which the word appears.

~Wikipedia~

BLine

I don’t know anything about football. It really doesn’t impress me much.

There’s a bunch of tough guys, placing hands up a player’s behind, shouting numbers, running into each other ending up on a heap of male muscle, increased testosterone and frequent stops.

The only interesting thing nowadays is the #TakeAKnee protest. 

By now, all fans and non-fans know about Pence’s costly, fake trip to Indiana. The cost of this charade has been calculated.

Nothing much!

HortyRex©

BLineP1BLine

It seems like we’ll never know exactly how much it cost taxpayers to have Mike Pence abruptly leave a football game Sunday between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers.

But conservative estimates say it was at least $200,000 – and that’s for the air travel alone.

CNN did a back-of-the-envelope calculation and figured the flight from Las Vegas (where Pence attended a memorial service for the victims of the mass shooting) to Indianapolis and then to Los Angeles for a previously scheduled political event cost at least $242,500. The cost of a flight straight from Las Vegas to Los Angeles would have been around $45,000.

LADY GAGA GLITTERS

Last night, February 5, Lady Gaga literally took a leap of faith (via some very trustworthy suspension cables) when she opened her Super Bowl Halftime Performance with a riff on patriotic classics.

After her epic (and already-memed) dive towards the stage, our Lady fearlessly sang her anthem, “Born This Way,” resplendent in crystal eye makeup and a glittering ensemble. If ever there was a time for “Yas Gaga,” this was it.

At the end of the day …. “The ugly history of the Star-Spangled Banner …. did you know?”!!

HISTORY BEHIND THE NATIONAL ANTHEM

I find it very interesting how, when any event takes place, I like to go back and look for the history behind it.

Why did the event take place?

Colin Kaepernick’s statement is such a situation for me.

I’m not a football fan. I’d never heard of Kaepernick.

I sure know about him now!

I have been following the stories about excessive force in law enforcement events since Trayvon Martin’s death. It really came to my full attention with Michael Brown’s death.

Since then, I’ve been up on follow up events, situations and details.

I followed Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile … many  more in between and many after.

I consider myself to be a fair, balanced individual.

There’s no doubt in my mind that these are instances of excessive police force.

Rather than de-escalation, it’s escalation.

It’s more prevalent within the African-American population.

This is the message that Keapernick is trying to bring to the forefront.

Seems to me he’s done a good job at calling attention to this matter.

Here’s some history behind that national anthem.

Did you know?

I didn’t.

The Forgotten Verses of “The Star-Spangled Banner”

Do you know all the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner”?

Many people have difficulty memorizing the lyrics of the first verse of this song, which is commonly performed at sports events and other public gatherings. But did you know that there are three additional verses that we almost never hear?

In 1814, the poet and lyricist Francis Scott Key penned the lyrics to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” originally known as “Defense of Fort M’Henry.” During the War of 1812, Key witnessed the attacks on Baltimore and wrote the words based on his experiences this night. These lyrics were printed in local newspapers and set to the tune of an existing song called “Anacreon in Heaven,” and then officially arranged by John Philip Sousa. Key’s famous lyrics entered the world as a broadside ballad, or a song written on a topical subject, and printed for wide distribution.

More than a century later, in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed an executive order designating “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem, and in 1931, the US Congress confirmed the decision. The tune has kicked off ceremonies of national importance and athletic events ever since.

While the first verse of “The Star-Spangled Banner” is widely known by the American public, the last three verses are generally omitted in performances.

~Nine Things You May Not Know About “The Star-Spangled Banner”~

Francis Scott Key intended his verses to be song lyrics, not poetry

Key was not imprisoned on a British warship when he penned his verses

The flag Key “hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming” did not fly “through the perilous fight”

The song was not originally entitled “The Star-Spangled Banner”

(“Defense of Fort M’Henry”)

It did not become the national anthem until more than a century after it was written

The national anthem has four verses

Key opposed American entry into the War of 1812

Key was a consummate Washington insider

Key was a one-hit wonder who might have been tone deaf

Melissa Etheridge …. ‘PULSE’ …. ‘Anthem for Our Sorrow” …. Found a video!!

~~June 18, 2016~~ 

ANTHEM FOR OUR SORROW

We have all been reeling from the senseless killing that took place in a local gay bar in Orlando.

The word “PULSE” has acquired a new meaning.

I posted information related to this song a few days ago.

At the time, there was no official video.

I don’t think there’s one yet.

The video included below shows Melissa’ performing the song during her current tour.

I touches my heart and gives me the chills.

I have noe words … her lyrics are perfect.

RBLine

In the wake of the unthinkable tragedy in Orlando, Melissa Etheridge found herself processing her pain with a guitar and pen in hand. And out of darkness, she brought a beautiful song entitled “Pulse” into the world.

But “Pulse” isn’t just a song, it’s a message of love, an anthem of understanding and a call to forgiveness.

Melissa shared this beautiful moment with us on stage the other night, and we wanted to share her message of love with all of you. We could all use a good cry right now…and a reminder that we are all in this together.

“I think musicians … I think our job is to heal, our job is to put all those emotions in something and send it out and give it a place to where we can all…just breathe…and understand that we’re all humans and we all have a pulse.”
