“Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!”
Restored footage of Eva Cassidy performing Autumn Leaves.
The performance took place at the Blues Alley jazz supper club in Georgetown, DC, on the 3rd January 1996.
Eva Marie Cassidy (February 2, 1963 – November 2, 1996) was an American vocalist and guitarist known for her interpretations of jazz, blues, folk, gospel, country, rock and pop classics.
In 1992, she released her first album, The Other Side, a set of duets with go-go musician Chuck Brown, followed by the 1996 live solo album titled Live at Blues Alley. Although she had been honored by the Washington Area Music Association, she was virtually unknown outside her native Washington, D.C.
It’s a new day, it’s a new week, it’s a new beginning. Come on and forget your troubles!
Schnuffel is an animated kind, gentle, fun-loving rabbit made at the end of 2007 for the marketing of one of the German media company Jamba! ringtones, yet the first concepts of the Schnuffel character were born in July 2.
The ringtone was turned into a song by Sebastian Nussbaum and Andreas Wendorf and recorded under the title Kuschel Song (“cuddling song”). The single was released in February 2008 and the ringtone rabbit made it immediately to the top of the German and European charts.
After the song went to the top of the Austrian charts and to number 2 in Switzerland, plans were made to release the song internationally. The songs were translated in 13 languages and 13 albums have been released, including German re-editions and international albums.
Schnuffel was introduced into the US market on January 17, 2010. The Schnuffel ringtone commercial currently airs on MTV, MTV2, Comedy Central, Teen Nick, and ABC Family.
Due to a rise in Greek interest, Schnuffel has turned to their market producing previous albums in Greek. These are not carbon copies of the original albums as minor tweaks in the track list and provided media have been made. With the switch to the Greek market Sony has not been producing these CDs, instead the Greek label Heaven Records has taken their spot.
