BEAUTIFUL HOMAGE TO IMMIGRANTS

In need of something uplifting and inspiring.

Something to lift up the soul.

My heart, my soul are raw … sometimes I feel I can’t breathe.

Today is one of those days!

~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.

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 do have it recorded.

I’ve been catching up!

Here’s the surprising performance of this classic song by a UK gospel choir.

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.

Pentatonix, the a cappella quartet, released their latest album of covers, PTX Presents: Top Pop Vol. 1 on Friday (April 13). The group has followed the premiere of the album with a new video – this time for their take on Ed Sheeran’s”Perfect”.

For “Perfect“, the well-dressed singers harmonize in various rooms of a muted old-school building as baritone Scott Hoying takes lead.

At the video’s peak, cellist Kevin Olusola’s solo leads to a ballerina pirouetting, right before the group joins in on the swoon of a chorus.

Playing For Change

~~Published on Apr 6, 2018~~

In music as in life, the things that make us different make us stronger. All the various instruments, tones, perspectives, and cultures in this recording combine to create a new version of this classic Songs Around The World.

The idea was born a few years ago during breakfast at the Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia. Our friend and drummer, Peter Bunetta, introduced me to Tom Johnston of The Doobie Brothers and we talked about taking “Listen to the Music” around the world. We started the track with an acoustic guitar demo played to a click track and then added bass from Colombia, tablas and veena from India, and then headed to the Redwood Forest in Northern California to record and film Tom Johnston live outside. We then recorded and filmed Patrick Simmons and John McFee playing along to the track in a park in San Diego. The journey then continued throughout North and South America, Europe, The Middle East, Asia, and Africa. This final version features 30 musicians from 12 countries united through their love of music.

‘Nowhere Man’ …. “🎼🤨🎼 M’gawd …. As if Written Just for HIM …. 🎼🤨🎼 …. “!!

~NOWHERE MAN~

THE BEATLES

I was a young teenager in Puerto Rico when The Beatles came to America in 1964. Needless to say I was totally hooked on their music.

Their music gave me sense of belonging. Their music represented me and my generation.

To this day, I enjoy, respect and follow The Beatles’ music.

I was surprised when I found this ‘meme’, listened to the lyrics and realized how ‘prophetic’ the words were!

Nowhere Man” is a song by The Beatles, from their album Rubber Soul.

The song was written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon – McCartney).

It was recorded on 21 and 22 October 1965.

Nowhere Man” is among the very first Beatles’ songs to be entirely unrelated to romance or love and marks a notable instance of Lennon’s philosophically-oriented songwriting.

~NOWHERE MAN LYRICS~

He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere man, The world is at your command
He’s as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere man, can you see me at all
Nowhere man don’t worry
Take your time, don’t hurry
Leave it all till somebody else
Lends you a hand
Ah, la, la, la, la …
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere man, The world is at your command
Ah, la, la, la, la
He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
