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.

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2018

~Angel City Chorale~

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent is ongoing.

Ever since this choir’s audition, I’ve been so impressed by their amazing talent.

They sang Toto’s ‘AFRICA’ for the auditions. They received the ‘Golden Buzzer’ for ‘Baba Yetu’ and now they performed ‘This Is Me”.

Hope you enjoy their talent as much as I have.

Los Angeles-based choir Angel City Chorale made its mark on the “America’s Got Talent” 2018 live shows Tuesday night with a rousing rendition of “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.”

Led by director Sue Fink, this 150-person choir is notable for its inclusion and diversity and this time they stepped things up by engaging with the Dolby Theatre audience. All four “AGT” judges – Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel – were on their feet at the conclusion of Angel City Chorale’s act.

What’s great about them as a choir is that they don’t rely solely on their voices to entertain, but instead include synchronized movements and other sounds to engage the audience in other ways. We already know that the group is one of Simon’s personal favorites, but tonight the entire panel of judges was on their feet for a standing ovation.

WORLD OF DANCE 2018 ….. “🎼🎼 Jaxon Willard’s Amazing Performance in ‘The Duels’ …. 🎼🎼”!!

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.

JW1

~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.”

Flawless Duels performance

Watch Charity and Andres’s performance and read what the judges had to say – after they caught their breath!

Junior contemporary duo Charity Anderson, of Springville, and Andrés Peñate, of Vineyard, known as Charity and Andres, were shown achieving the first-ever combined perfect score of 100 on NBC’s “World of Dance” on Wednesday during the second Duals round.

Jennifer López

“It felt so new and disruptive, #disruptive. that blind jump onto his back, with him not even … ‘She’s just going to jump on my back right now.’ He knew it was coming. Like, if it’s timed – I don’t even understand what the hell! That was ‘The Matrix’!”

Ne-Yo

“Beyond the amazingness of the dance, a crystal-clear storyline, on top of the fact that you did things with your bodies that human beings just can’t do. How do you top that?”

Derek Hough

“There’s something to be said about when you choreography your own routines you know what you’re capable of doing. You know your limits. You know your strengths. And you guys choreographed a routine that didn’t just play to your strengths, it surpassed it. It transcended dance. It was so amazing.”

If you haven’t heard of the Fabulous Sisters from Japan they are a crew of ladies who live up to their name and more.

This past weekend at the World of Dance Finals in Los Angeles, they delivered a memorable diverse performance which earned them a spot in the Winners Circle and a video bound to receive well earned popularity in no time. In 2016 they received 1st place in youth division at the World of Dance Japan Qualifier.

Their style is an intense fusion of multiple styles of not only hip hop but contemporary, waacking, tutting, voguing, jazz funk, and intricate arm and hand placements.

~We Three~

THE POWER OF MUSIC

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent has begun

I finally am caught up with the recorded episodes.

Music is powerful. It heals, it inspires, it speaks.

In season 13, NBC’s America’s Got Talent follows Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel, and host Tyra Banks in their talent search, showcasing unique performers from across the country.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

We Three will be hitting the stage again in the third round of judge cuts on ‘AGT.’ This sibling band stole our hearts when they first performed.

Here’s what you need to know about them!

Avery Thompson

The judge cuts continue on America’s Got Talent season 13

1. Mel B and Tyra Banks cried during We Three’s first audition. The siblings – Josh, Bethany, and Manny – performed their original song “Heaven’s Not Too Far Away.” The song was written in the perspective of their mother, who passed away from cancer two years ago. The performance moved Mel B to tears because she also lost her father to cancer.

2. Their mother tragically died from cancer, and they honor her through music. Josh, Bethany, and Manny’s mom was diagnosed with cancer in Sept. 2015 and died four months later, according to KGW8. Writing “Heaven’s Not Too Far Away” was therapeutic for the siblings.

“I think it was so impactful because it was like we got to have another conversation with her.

Every time we listen to it, we get to have another conversation with her,” Manny told the outlet.

W3-1

3. We Three has released a number of songs already. On the band’s official website, We Three has a number of songs available for fans to listen to, including “Lifeline” and a 4-song EP.

4. They want to “spread light and love” with their music. Fame has nothing to do with why these siblings want to make music. “It’s our way to connect with people, spread light and love and spread the vision of hope for a better tomorrow,” they told Portland Notes. 

“We hope to encourage and support people right where they’re at in their lives through our music.”

5. All three band members know how to play instruments and sing. They all took private lessons on the piano and later explored other instruments, they also revealed to Portland Notes. Josh plays piano and drums, while Bethany plays bass. Manny plays the guitar. “We learned to sing and play simultaneously,” they told the outlet.

YET ANOTHER HALLELUJAH COVER

~Little Girl Belts Out Hallelujah Next To Pentatonix Stars~

MUSIC IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much … This one is so very special:

Kaylee and Pentatonix!

Hope you enjoy this one!

11-Yr-Old Kaylee Johnson has gained legions of fans since her recent appearance on “Little Big Shots,” when famous a cappella group Pentatonix joined her in singing a rousing rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

But what many fans don’t realize is that the little girl was diagnosed at an early age with mild autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. According to her teachers, Kaylee rarely spoke, much less sang, until just recently.

But that all changed last year, not long before she shot to viral fame with a Christmas-themed remake of “Hallelujah” with her choir at Killard House Special School in Northern Ireland.
