ONE YEAR AGO TODAY

I can’t believe how fast time flies.

A year ago we received the news of Prince passing.

He was found in Paisley Park, lifeless.

Many theories were presented, many half truths, many rumors.

No matter the reason, a huge musical giant, an amazing musician, a masterful influence was gone.

He crossed his ‘Purple Bridge”.

And left his many fans behind!

From a Facebook Member, Josie Fletcher … had to share! 
Prince isn’t dead … he just hopped on his “Little Red Corvette” … with his “Raspberry Beret” … drove off through the “Purple Rain“, over “Graffiti Bridge” … under the “Cherry Moon“, partying like it’s “1999” … because this is what happens “When Doves Cry“!!

‘LAST CHRISTMAS’

I couldn’t have found this musical cover at a better time.

It’s the holidays.

It’s another way to honor George Michael.

Hope you enjoy it!

‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ …. “Fallon, Carey and The Roots …. “!!

CLASSROOM INSTRUMENTS

Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey & The Roots

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” 

Jimmy Fallon and the band were joined by Mariah Carey on what was then Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and they cranked out a rousing rendition of her holiday pop classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

Though Carey’s recorded version will indubitably be played millions of times in the coming weeks, you probably won’t hear anything like this.

Fallon and company are playing their toy instruments and a small chorus of kids are on backup, while everyone is dressed in their holiday finest.

It’s totally irresistible, even for the most Grinch-like viewer.

“All I Want For Christmas Is You”

~~Published on Dec 4, 2012~~

Backstage before the show, Jimmy, Mariah Carey, and The Roots grabbed some instruments you’d find in an elementary school classroom and stopped by the Late Night “Music Room” to sing Mariah’s holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
