‘SHALLOW’ …. “💫 A Star is Born …. Bradley Cooper and Stephanie Germanotta 💫 …. “!!

‘A STAR IS BORN’

FINALLY

I went to the movies yesterday and saw this film.

I was an ardent fan of the 1976 version in which Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson played the lead roles.

I wasn’t disappointed with this current version.

Both Bradley and Lady Gaga performed impeccably. 

Fully recommend it!

This song is simply incredible. The story around it is worth watching the film.

 “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!!

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.”

PLAYING FOR CHANGE 

Song Around The World

I started following Playing for Change a few years ago.

I think the work they do and the way they present music from around the world is amazing.

Music is the universal language.

Here’s a new song that I found traversing through the internet today.

I hope you enjoy it!

This song was co-written by Mermans Mosengo and my brother, Greg Johnson, a few years ago while we were on tour with the PFC Band.

Cong-4

The simple message and anthemic chorus made me really excited to record it as a PFC Song Around The World.

We started under the hot African sun in the village of Lukala in the Congo and we added musicians wherever we traveled for the past few years until we finally added the final piece with Grandpa Elliott playing the harmonica solo in New Orleans.

Someday we’ll all be free, until then, music is our ammunition.

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.

“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.”

REVISED DEATH TOLL IN PUERTO RICO

REMEMBER WHEN?

We ALL knew!

The official count is 16, then 64, then 4,645!

Now, after a study done by professionals, the official number is 2,975.

Who can anyone be sure?

Shame on Drumpf … it won’t matter because he doesn’t care!!
She’s the only person who has been vocal about the situation in Puerto Rico since Hurricanes Irma and María battered Puerto Rico!!

Let this recorded interview explain itself.

Plenty others have remained quiet.

For that, she has my utmost respect!

San Juan mayor says the Drumpf administration killed thousands through neglect during Hurricane María

Washington (CNN)

The Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, said Wednesday, August 29, that bureaucracy and inefficiency across local and federal government entities are to blame for the deaths of nearly 3,000 on the island in the wake of Hurricane María, which came to light as part of a newly released study commissioned by the Puerto Rican government.
In particular, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blamed Drumpf, federal officials and Puerto Rican officials for not providing more assistance in what the Puerto Rican government now acknowledges was a storm deadlier than Hurricane Katrina.

CYC3

“You know, everybody is responsible because there were people in power that had the opportunity to request more aid, to request more aid when it was reasonable, to request more aid when it was needed, to tell the truth and they didn’t,”

Yulín Cruz told CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota.

“It’s 2,975 people and they’re still calling it an estimate – 2,975 people that will never see the light of day and many of them died because of what was done by the administration and that was silently approved by most of the political class in Puerto Rico.”
