Streisand revealed that she’d failed her written driver’s test three times while attempting to get her license renewed

“I was so nervous, a little bit like I am now because I have you in the car,” she told Corden. She also said that she hasn’t been driving a lot lately because her mind “is twirling” and she recently found herself driving the wrong way on the highway. “This is not what I need to hear right now,” her fellow passenger jokes.

“I thought, ‘That’s it, I’m not driving anymore,'” she said, adding, “But you’re lucky.”

“If this is how I go out, I’ll take it,” Corden jokes. “Corden died at the hands of Barbra Streisand. ‘Is she OK?’ She’s fine, thank god.”

When asked about the current political climate and how she’s coping, Streisand explained that that’s why she created the album, which is fittingly titled Walls.

In a bind, James Corden calls on Barbra Streisand for a ride to work. In addition to singing her classics and music from her new album, “Walls,” Barbra demonstrates how she failed her driving test three times, and how she was able to get Apple’s Siri to pronounce her name correctly.

THE QUEEN OF SOUL

HONORED BY QUEEN ELIZABETH OF ENGLAND

Band of the Welsh Guards

I know this happened a while ago.

Still it’s so very important to receive such an honor and realize the reach of the “Queen of Soul.

I also needed something uplifting today.

Enjoy!

The Queen of Soul was honored outside Queen Elizabeth’s London residence

The Band of the Welsh Guards paid tribute to Aretha Franklin outside at Buckingham Palace in London on Friday, as stars turned out to attend the legendary singer’s funeral in Detroit. They played Franklin’s hit “Respect” during the Changing of the Guard ceremony.

“The Band of the Welsh Guards are world famous for their musical versatility and professional performance and on August 16 paid tribute to another musical icon and one that has been of huge influence and inspiration to our musicians – Aretha Franklin, whose funeral was being held in Detroit 3,748 miles away, at the same time of the Queen’s Guard Change,” the British Army wrote on their YouTube page.

“In the Army Respect for others underpins all that we do, so there was only one tune that would do for today’s ceremony: the 1967 Aretha Franklin hit ‘R.E.S.P.E.C.T.’ a declaration from a strong confident woman who knows that she has everything.”

The performance was received with respectful applause from the gathered crowd.

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.

~THE BACKBONE OF AMERICA~

The dance world already knows that Keone and Mari Madrid are brilliant storytellers, choreographers who can create narrative movement that moves us. But we especially love it when they use their choreographic voices to highlight important causes.

For this year’s VIBE Dance Competition exhibition performance, the husband-and-wife duo created a beautiful homage to the immigrants who form the backbone of America.

Inspired by their grandparents, “who came to America to make a new life for their families,” and by “the many displaced humans around the world who are trying to do the same,” We Are is an emotional exploration of the trials immigrants have faced – and continue to face today.

Its message hits even more powerfully thanks to its innovative use of video projections (by Vibrvncy/Nick Kim) and some ingenious set design (by Brandon and John Arii).

Simon Cowell gives opera singer Daniel Emmet an impossible challenge on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Classical crossover singer Daniel Emmet thought that he was sure to sail through his audition for “America’s Got Talent.”

But as we saw on the June 19 episode of “AGT,” head judge Simon Cowell had something else in mind for this 25-year-old singer, who intended to perform an original song that was a mashup of opera and pop. He had barely begun this tune, which came across as bland and boring, when judge Simon Cowell cut him off and requested that he sing a different song.

When Emmet admitted he had not come prepared with an alternate, Cowell seemed crossed. He dispatched him from the stage and gave him just one hour to learn another song, the Il Divo hit “Passera.”

The visibly nervous neophyte returned in the appointed 60 minutes and proceeded to wow the audience, the panel and even himself with his rendition of this Italian aria.

THE ROYAL WEDDING

I was away from home on May 19, 2018.

I missed watching the royal wedding in real time.

My personal tradition has been to get up early and watch every bit of it.

I’ve been catching up with the DVR’d programs.

Watch cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s amazing performance!

Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason becomes breakout star after royal wedding performance

England may have a new duke and duchess in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but in the process, classical music also got a new star.

Sheku Kanneh-Mason, a 19-year-old cellist from Nottingham, captivated the congregation and everyone watching the royal wedding, his music filling St. George’s Chapel. As for Sheku himself, he can be as quiet as a church mouse.

“To perform at anyone’s wedding is such an honor, but a wedding of that much significance is just so exciting,” he said.

Sheku has been playing since he was 6. His parents Stuart Mason and Kadie Kanneh say it was love at first sight.

“And as soon as he got a cello, that was it. We couldn’t get him off it,” Kadie said.

He has a nearly priceless Amati cello that’s more than 400 years old and is never out of his sight. Well, almost never.

“I wouldn’t take it out at night,” he said, laughing. “No, I leave it, I leave it in my room … It’s not that extreme.”

He’s studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London on a full scholarship, along with his older siblings. In fact, every one of Sheku’s six brothers and sisters have spent their life playing classical music.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the newly named Duke and Duchess of Sussex, surprised their guests with a gospel choir doing a powerful rendition of “Stand By Me” during the royal wedding at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
The song is a significant choice.

First recorded by Ben E. King and released in 1961, it became an anthem for political progress and has been heard at many a black church service.
Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir, a London-based gospel choir, performed the song for the couple from the west end of St. George’s Chapel at the castle.
