ERIKA ENDER

~Co-Writer of the Biggest Hit of the Year~

She’s the force behind force and the power behind the single hit phenomenon

DESPACITO.

Credit where credit is due.

Let her voice carry you to the place where the sensual, slow version can take you!

When Erika Ender was a little girl growing up in Panama, she’d buy albums and inscribe them with imaginary ­dedications from the artists.

Ender, thanks to her work on this year’s Song of the Summer, “Despacito,” no longer needs to pretend that stars adore her work. Along with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, the 42-year-old is co-writer of the biggest hit of the year, featuring Justin Bieber, which spent 16 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100.

Ender is a singer in her own right, a philanthropist who created a foundation in 2009 to help children, and one of very few successful Latin women in the songwriting field.

Now, since the release of “Despacito” in February, she is in demand from ­producers around the world. They’re eager for the sound of cultural fusion that Ender brings to her work, and which is rooted in her upbringing.

Born in Panama to a Brazilian mother and a US-born father of German ancestry, Ender speaks fluent Portuguese and Spanish, and moves easily between cultures.

Before “Despacito,” she had written hits for Chayanne, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Gloria Trevi, Ednita Nazario and Los Tigres del Norte. She also is a TV personality in Latin America, where she has been a judge for a Latin version of American Idol.

“I see myself as a communicator of music,” she says.

“I’m three Erikas: the artist, the composer and the TV personality.

I have a long career in all three.

I’m like my hair,” she jokes. “I take up a lot of space.”

This year, which marks her 25th anniversary as a performer, Ender has a lot to celebrate. In May, she released her latest album, Tatuajes (Tattoos), and this month she’ll become the youngest inductee into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame, which will hold its gala Oct. 19 at the James L. Knight Center in Miami.

~LYRICS~

Imagine
Our planet floating silently in space
Around it, a white dove flies–
Forever circling
Every one hundred years, the dove’s wing
Gently touches the surface of the earth
The time it would take for the feathered wing
To wear this planet down to nothing
Is eternity

Within eternity, time passes
Within time, there is change
Soon, the wing of the white dove
Will touch our world again
The dawn of a new Century
Time for a new beginning

Now is eternity
At the break of
Dawn of a century
A thousand years
Of joy and tears
We leave behind

Love is our destiny
Celebrate the
Dawn of a century
Let voices ring
Rejoice and sing
Now is the time

Now is eternity
Love is our destiny
Dawn of a century

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

CHILL FACTOR

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

This song soothes my raw feelings. It calms me, it centers me.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Hope you enjoy this one!

~Millions Of People Are Floored When Bon Jovi Sings “Hallelujah”~

Back in 2007, Bon Jovi performed a stripped-down rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – and it’s been seen by more than 43 million people ever since!

He sings it with such emotion, it’s hard not to tear up and press repeat over and over and over again.

It seems every performer likes to put their own spin on the classic song. Bon Jovi’s version is more raw but just as compelling.

It doesn’t hurt that the song and its lyrics are pure genius.

ANGELINA GREEN 

I’ve been catching up to my recorded TV shows.

America’s Got Talent is one of them.

Amazing talent seen in this young girl.

Enjoy!

GoldSwirl

Angelina Green, a 13-year-old from Miami, Florida, proved her singing chops on an early July episode of “America’s Got Talent.”

In doing so, the young talent earned the final coveted golden buzzer, which means she’ll be sent straight through to the show’s live semifinals.

When judge Heidi Klum asks Green what she’ll be performing, Green explains, “Well, I’ve been singing since forever, but I took it seriously when my parents got divorced and it was really hard for me.

And music helped me so much.”

As the music starts, Green launches into a jaw-dropping rendition of The Pretenders’ 1994 hit, “I’ll Stand By You.”

As Green reaches the chorus, the crowd watching her stands to its feet.

ANOTHER PERFECT SCORE 

Normani Kordei & Val Chmerkovskiy Contemporary

DWTS Season 24 Week 8

Another beautiful distraction to soothe my soul.

They did it again this week … a perfect score!

This is amazing talent.

Because of her race, womanhood, entertainer status with Fifth Harmony, Normani has been subjected to cyber-bullying.

This song was an anthem to the resilience and stamina to raise about it all.

The song was perfect and the performance flawless!

~Well, hello there Normani Kordei!~

The singer and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy were completely amazing on Dancing with the Stars tonight.

Team ValMani performed a stunning Contemporary to “Freedom” by Anthony Hamilton and Elayna Boynton, earning 40 points out of 40 from the judges. Another perfect score!

“The piece is so symbolic of what I’ve been through,” Normani says of the dance that Val picked for her.

And they continued on to another dance that same night.

Ed Sheeran followed the lead of Adele, Carly Rae Jepsen, Mariah Carey, and other musicians to recreate one of his hit songs using classroom instruments.

Sheeran joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on the February 27th’s episode of “The Tonight Show” for a performance of his smash single “Shape of You.”

The band used plastic xylophones, a melodica, ukulele, guiro, kazoo, and tambourine, as well as an apple-shaped shaker and blocks to recreate the radio staple. In addition to providing vocals, Sheeran also got his hand on an instrument of his own: the banana-shaped shaker.
