Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Salsa Remix of “Almost Like Praying
The song was first released in October 2017 to raise funds for disaster relief in Puerto Rico.

GoldSwirl

This is what makes Puerto Ricans Puerto Ricans.

The undying spirit against adversity. My heart and soul have been aching since Hurricane María battered my country. The days after have been sadder as images come out of the utter devastation of a beautiful Caribbean Island.

The Puerto Rican spirit is battered but not broken after Maria.

At 10:30am this morning, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda released a salsa remix of “Almost Like Praying,” his single benefiting the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund for hurricane recovery and rebuilding initiatives in Puerto Rico. Spanish Broadcasting System teamed up with Miranda for a world-premiere radio launch of the remix in New York (Mega 97.9FM), Miami (El Nuevo Zol 106.7FM), and Puerto Rico (Estereotempo 96.5FM).

Miranda himself introduced the single, followed by an interview live from the SBS studios in New York City.

“The benefit single ‘Almost Like Praying’ has had tremendous success with audiences worldwide,” said Miranda. “As we now continue to help establish long-term self-sustainable initiatives to rebuild Puerto Rico, we are thrilled to bring this new version to Salsa-music fans. Although it has been over four months since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, the island still needs much help to get its most basic infrastructure up and running – including electricity, roads and bridges, healthcare and other vital programs.”

The original “Almost Like Praying” was released for download and streaming on October 6, 2017, and within its first week, hit No. 1 in digital sales in 17 countries. One hundred percent of the proceeds have gone to the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund, which has sponsored hundreds of initiatives to assist in the relief, recovery, and now rebuilding of Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory since 1898.

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.

TWO AMAZING TALENTS TOGETHER

“YOU’RE WELCOME”

I found this amazing music video yesterday when I was working on Jordan Fisher’s DWTS posts.

This is what brings joy to my heart in these hectic times.

Music is a balm for my heart and soul!

Jordan Fisher and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda star in the new music video for “You’re Welcome,” a song from the hit animated Disney film Moana. The song is heard during the end credits of the film, for which Miranda wrote part of the score and earned an Oscar nomination.

This isn’t Fisher’s first time singing a Miranda score.

The 22-year-old recently starred in his iconic musical Hamilton as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton on Broadway, a role originated by Anthony Ramos.

In the live-action video, Jordan Fisher sings through the streets of New York before getting a text from Miranda to meet him in a London recording studio, where the Broadway star slays Maui’s rap.

(Miranda can’t really come to the Big Apple, as he’s currently filming Mary Poppins Returns in the U.K.)

This version of “You’re Welcome” features on the official motion picture soundtrack.

Drumpf’s Puerto Rico Relief Video …. “🇵🇷 Here’s What You Don’t See 🇵🇷 …. Who’s Got FAKE NEWS? …. “!!

DRUMPF’S PUERTO RICO’S RELIEF VIDEO

FAKE NEWS

I saw the Puerto Rico Relief video on Twitter.

The gall … yet, I wasn’t surprised.  This sorry excuse of a sub-human, so called president will say anything and do anything.

There’s no redeeming value in the empty shell of a ‘man’. He’s empty and incapable of compassion, empathy and honor.

You can mess with the USA but you don’t mess with my country, Puerto Rico. 

I will call you on it every time I see how you lie and how you have treated the 3.4+ millions of American citizens who live in ‘your colony’ just because they are ‘brown people’.

I don’t have to be a genius to see it.

My intelligence quotient is much higher than yours!!

YOU’VE HAD A ROUGH WEEK

FOR ABOUT ONE YEAR NOW

Despacito‘ is a song very close to my heart. It took over the airwaves, cyberspace and traveled the world over. Why so special? Because it was written and performed by Puerto Rican talent, artists and performers.

At a time as serious as these, humor always lightens up the situation, even though momentarily.

These are very serious topics.

Humor is the best way to get through this in spite of the seriousness of it all.

Randy Rainbow provides much of it.

Enjoy!

WHAT A GREAT JOB

THANK YOU, EMINEM, FOR CALLING IT AS IT IS

I’ve truly never been a fan of rap music and Eminem hasn’t been one of my favorite performers. This time, IMHO, he’s plainly stated what many of Americans are feeling. It takes an artist to have the gall and balls to call out the ‘moronic idiot‘ who is leading the country.

Sure beats out the hell of a job those surrounding and enabling HIM to take this nation to the gutter, the spot it currently occupies, except in the minds of the IDIOTS who still support HIM.

It was time for someone to call it like it is.

I’m mad as hell!!

I find it difficult to follow the words of this genre of music. These are included below to that you don’t miss a word and get Eminem’s full message.

~2017 BET HIP-HOP AWARDS~

Thus far this week we’ve seen everyone from a Republican Senator to foreign leaders call out Drumpf for his, well, bullshit. But now one of the most devastating take-downs of Drumpf is coming from rapper Eminem – and it’s a moment you’ll want to pay attention to whether or not you’re a fan of Eminem or hip hop, because it nails Drumpf with a stunning level of detailed accuracy.

Eminem appears in a four minute video which first aired at the BET Awards on October 10, but has since been posted online. He starts off by quoting Drumpf’s “calm before the storm” line, but then proceeds to launch into his own blistering critique:

“We’d better give Obama props ’cause what we’ve got in office now a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust – and while the drama pops and he waits for shit to quiet down, he’ll just cast his plane up and fly around until the bombing stops.”

It gets more devastating from there, eviscerating Drumpf over his policies and his madness.

LYRICS

This the calm before the storm right here
Wait, how was I gonna start this off?
I forgot … oh, yeah

[Single verse]
That’s an awfully hot coffee pot
Should I drop it on Donald Trump? Prob’ly not
But that’s all I got ’til I come up with a solid plot
Got a plan and now I gotta hatch it
Like a damn Apache with a tomahawk
I’ma walk inside a mosque on Ramadan
And say a prayer that every time Melania talks
She gets a mou — ahh, I’ma stop
But we better give Obama props
‘Cause what we got in office now’s a kamikaze
That’ll prob’ly cause a nuclear holocaust
And while the drama pops
And he waits for shit to quiet down he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around ’til the bombing stops
Intensities heightened, tensions are risin’
Trump, when it comes to giving a shit, you’re stingy as I am
Except when it comes to having the balls to go against me, you hide ’em
‘Cause you don’t got the fucking nuts like an empty asylum
Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for
‘Cause that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange
Yeah, sick tan
That’s why he wants us to disband
‘Cause he can not withstand
The fact we’re not afraid of Trump
Fuck walkin’ on egg shells, I came to stomp
That’s why he keeps screamin’, “Drain the swamp!”
‘Cause he’s in quicksand
It’s like we take a step forwards, then backwards
But this is his form of distraction
Plus, he gets an enormous reaction
When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that in
-stead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada
All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather
Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers
Then says he wants to lower our taxes
Then who’s gonna pay for his extravagant trips
Back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?
Same shit that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered
Then does it more
From his endorsement of Bannon
Support from the Klansmen
Tiki torches in hand for the soldier that’s black
And comes home from Iraq
And is still told to go back to Africa
Fork and a dagger in this racist 94-year-old grandpa
Who keeps ignoring our past historical, deplorable factors
Now if you’re a black athlete you’re a spoiled little brat for
Tryna use your platform or your stature
To try to give those a voice who don’t have one
He says, “You’re spittin’ in the face of vets who fought for us, you bastards!”
Unless you’re a POW who’s tortured and battered
‘Cause to him you’re zeros
‘Cause he don’t like his war heroes captured
That’s not disrespecting the military
Fuck that! This is for Colin, ball up a fist!
And keep that shit balled like Donald the bitch!
“He’s gonna get rid of all immigrants!”
“He’s gonna build that thing up taller than this!”
Well, if he does build it, I hope it’s rock solid with bricks
‘Cause like him in politics, I’m using all of his tricks
‘Cause I’m throwin’ that piece of shit against the wall ’til it sticks
And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his
I’m drawing in the sand a line: you’re either for or against
And if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split
On who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this:
“Fuck you!”
The rest of America stand up
We love our military, and we love our country
But we fucking hate Trump

Today, I feel his anger. Today I totally get Eminem. Today I thank him. His anger and indignation expressed my own. Today his facial expression has been my own since the 2016 presidential campaign began.
