FREEDOM CONCERT -PEOPLE UNITED

The worst thing we can do to Donald Trump is take away his audience

you reap what you sow

Robert Reich threw out an idea to his nearly 1.7 million Facebook followers this week that has a lot of people asking: How do we make this happen?

In a Facebook post on Sunday, December 18, the former secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton noted the dearth of celebrities and musicians willing to participate in Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities.

Many supported Hillary Clinton.

So Reich is championing the idea that celebrities host an event of their own on Inauguration Day to give the official event, starring Trump, a run for the ratings.

“Someone just suggested to me a televised ‘freedom concert’ to air at the same time as the inauguration – with huge celebrities like Beyoncé and Jay Z, Madonna, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, and so on,” Reich wrote.

“Alec Baldwin MC’s the event, playing Trump as he does on SNL.

Presto.

The Trump inauguration loses all the TV ratings. Basically, no one watches it.”

Reich also suggested that such a concert could raise money for a variety of progressive causes, including “the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, NAACP, Common Cause, CAIR, IRAP, SPLC, Environmental Defense Fund, Human Rights Campaign Fund, MoveOn, Economic Policy Institute, Inequality Media, and GLAAD.”

His post inspired a Change.org petition that, as of Wednesday morning, had attracted nearly 44,000 signatures and dozens of supporters on Twitter.

JAMES CORDEN CARPOOL KARAOKE

Madonna Get Weird with James Corden on Carpool Karaoke

Eventually, it had to happen: the best-selling female artist of all time had to get in the passenger seat of James Corden’s car to help the well-loved TV host make his way through traffic.

But as with all things Madonna, nothing is ever quite what you expect; she is the master of spectacle, after all.

The Queen of Pop and the British comedian make quite a pair in Wednesday night’s (December 7), installment of Carpool Karaoke, running through a slew of Madonna’s greatest hits (with accompanying dance moves) and even getting into some salacious gossip.

(“What was it like to spend a night out – or in – with Michael Jackson?”

“So you want me to kiss and tell then, don’t you?” they banter.)

BEHIND THE SCENES 

Popular Songs You Never Knew Prince Wrote

BY KELLI BENDER

4/21/2016

With Prince’s shocking death, the monumental scope of his influence on music is just starting to become clear.

The rock, funk and R&B icon has inspired dozens of today’s award-winning artists and has crafted numerous albums that ended up greatly reshaping our current musical landscape.

He is not just Prince; he is a king.

And unlike some royalty, Prince loved to share his wealth, writing numerous songs for his fellow artists and allowing his music to be covered by other performers as well.

Some of Prince’s successful pieces may surprise you, especially since he doesn’t sing a word on the tracks. Read on for eleven songs you probably know, but never knew were written by Prince.

We ALL are connected through MUSIC!!

“Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor

Perhaps The Purple One’s best known outside effort, this 1990 single, complete with bald, teary video, gave Sinead O’Connor a worldwide hit. Prince originally wrote and composed “Nothing Compares 2 U” for his funk band side project, The Family, but the song was never released as a single.

“Manic Monday” by The Bangles

Prince wrote this weekday lament in 1984 as a duet for the band Apollonia 6, but the song was never put on a record. Two years after crafting the catchy creation, Prince offered the song to The Bangles under the pseudonym “Christopher,” because he liked the song “Heroes Take the Fall” and was reportedly attracted to the group’s rhythm guitarist Susanna Hoffs.

“Love Song” by Madonna

Prince helped Madonna cowrite this song for the 1989 album Like a Prayer. Madonna traveled to The Studio at Paisley Park in Minnesota, where Prince was pronounced dead, to come up with the piece. Along with helping to write the track, Prince also sang and played guitar on “Love Song.”

“Stand Back” by Stevie Nicks

Prince paired up with Nicks to help her write this top five hit. The Fleetwood Mac singer has often shared the interesting birth story behind this single from her solo career. According to Nicks, she was inspired to create the song after listening to Prince’s “Little Red Corvette.” When she went to record “Stand Back”, she called Prince about the song, and he showed up at the studio that night to help finish up the track.

“I Feel For You” by Chaka Khan

While Khan was not the first one to this song, she made the most memorable version. Prince originally wrote the song for Patrice Rushen but ended up recording the song himself and putting it on his 1979 self-titled album. “I Feel For You” went on to be covered by The Pointer Sisters and Mary Wells, but it was Khan’s 1984 version that became the hit to withstand the test of time.

“The Glamorous Life” by Sheila E.

Like “Manic Monday,” Prince first wrote this song for Apollonia 6. The creation was eventually given to the singer and percussionist Sheila E., who transformed the song into a top dance hit.

“Jungle Love” by The Time

The rival band in Purple Rain is actually playing plenty of Prince songs. “The Kid” wrote many songs for the Minneapolis-based band, who were also close friends and collaborators with the artist in real life. Prince helped pen “Jungle Love,” one of the group’s most popular songs, in 1983 and also played multiple instruments on the track.

“With This Tear” by Celine Dion

Prince wrote the 1992 song as a gift to Dion, who put the present, backed by her stunning voice, on her self-titled album.

“Sugar Walls” by Sheena Easton

Ditching his previous pseudonym “Christopher” for the new name “Alexander Nevermind,” the disguised Prince wrote this U.S. dance hit for Easton in 1984.

“Love … Thy Will Be Done” by Martika

Prince co-wrote this single with Maritka for her 1991 debut album Maritka’s Kitchen. The track went on to top pop charts in numerous countries.

“How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore?” by Alicia Keys

Prince wrote and recorded this ballad in 1982 as a b-side to his single “1999,” but the track didn’t become a commercial success until Keys covered the song in 2002, retitling it “How Come You Don’t Call Me.” Keys’ version went on to appear on several charts across the world.
