BRANDON ROGERS 

I’ve been catching up to my recorded America’s Got Talent.

I was saddened to see this audition and learn of Brandon’s tragic death in an automobile accident.

Sad loss for his family, his patients and for us who will miss the possibility of him growing into his own as a singer.

May he rest in peace!

Brandon, who died in a car accident sang Stevie Wonder’s track ‘Ribbon In The Sky’ for Mel and her fellow judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel on July 11th Tuesday’s night’s episode.

His audition was a huge success and even earned him a standing ovation from the judges and the audience.

After Brandon sang, Simon told him:

‘Your vocal work is stunning. You are one of the best singers we’ve had in the competition so far.’

The show paid tribute to Brandon with in a statement before his audition was shown.

Thank you Gilbert for giving our community one of our greatest gifts.

Gilbert Baker (June 2, 1951 – March 31, 2017) was an openly gay American artist and civil rights activist who designed the rainbow flag in 1978. Baker’s flag became widely associated with LGBT rights causes, a symbol of pride that became ubiquitous in the decades since its debut.

The colors on the Rainbow Flag reflect the diversity of the LGBT community.

When Baker raised the first rainbow flags at San Francisco Pride (his group raised two flags at the Civic Center) on June 25, 1978, it had eight colors, each with a symbolic meaning:

Hot Pink: sexuality
Red: life
Orange: healing
Yellow: sunlight
Green: nature
Turquoise: magic/art
Blue: serenity/harmony
Violet: spirit

TRIBUTE

Ellen DeGeneres paid tribute to Carrie Fisher

Wednesday, January 3

Carrie died in December after suffering a heart attack

DeGeneres, who had known Fisher for years and had frequently hosted her on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, remembered her late friend through clips of Fisher’s past appearances on the show.

“Before I go, I want to say something about my friend, Carrie Fisher,”

DeGeneres said toward the end of the show.

“I knew her for a long time. She’s been on the show many times, and the last time was just a month ago. And I loved when she was here. She made me laugh so hard. She was smart, she was funny, she was hilariously honest about herself and the world around her.”

DeGeneres then showed clips of Fisher joking on the show about her life, career and relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds, who died the day after Fisher.

WE LOST ANOTHER AMAZING HUMAN BEING

She was a true intellectual.

She will be missed dearly. Her great sense of humor will forever be remembered.

We lost an important, loud voice against the ‘man’!

Carrie Frances Fisher (October 21, 1956 – December 27, 2016) was an American actress, writer, producer, and humorist.

She was the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds.

Fisher was best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars film series. Her other film roles included Shampoo (1975), The Blues Brothers (1980), Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), The ‘Burbs (1989), and When Harry Met Sally … (1989).

Fisher was also known for her semi-autobiographical novels, including Postcards from the Edge and the screenplay for the film of the same name, as well as her autobiographical one-woman play and its nonfiction book, Wishful Drinking, based on the show.

She additionally served as a script doctor, working on other writers’ screenplays. In later years, she earned praise for speaking publicly about her experiences with bipolar disorder and drug addiction.

Fisher died at the age of 60 on December 27, 2016, four days after going into cardiac arrest near the end of a transatlantic flight from London to Los Angeles.

George Michael …. “James Corden’s Very First Carpool Karaoke Guest …. Comic Relief …. “!!


gm-k

~~December 27, 2016~~ 

NAILED IT!

He was, of course, the very first musical guest to sit in the passenger seat of James Corden’s car, and sing along to one of his own numbers.

Sound familiar? 

Five years ago, when the idea of ‘James Corden, chat show supremo’ was but the twinkle in the eye of a stateside TV exec, George joined the comedic actor for a segment for the 2011 Comic Relief.

The idea was that James was having to drag, reluctantly, an un-cool mate along with him for the day. All the jokes were at the expense of George, his personal tribulations (”I thought we were going to pick up my photos”) and even his music. And, typically, he joined in with gusto. Even doing “sad face”.

And it worked so well, when James got the nod for his own show five years later, that one small sketch gave birth to ‘Carpool Karaoke’, a phenomenon that has gone on to include Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Madonna, Justin Bieber and even First Lady Michelle Obama. And it all started with George.
 Bravo.

Enjoy again!

ARNOLD PALMER 

‘The King’ of golf dies at 87

Arnold Palmer, who died Sunday, September 25, in Pittsburgh at age 87, was the accessible common man who would become the King and lead his own army. Along the way he became one of the sport’s best players and a successful businessman, philanthropist, trailblazing advertising spokesman, talented golf course designer and experienced aviator.

“We are deeply saddened by the death of Arnold Palmer, golf’s greatest ambassador, at age 87,” the U.S. Golf Association said in a statement.  “Arnold Palmer will always be a champion, in every sense of the word. He inspired generations to love golf by sharing his competitive spirit, displaying sportsmanship, caring for golfers and golf fans, and serving as a lifelong ambassador for the sport.

Our stories of him not only fill the pages of golf’s history books and the walls of the museum, but also our own personal golf memories.

The game is indeed better because of him, and in so many ways, will never be the same.”

Alastair Johnson, CEO of Arnold Palmer Enterprises, confirmed that Palmer died Sunday afternoon of complications from heart problems. Johnson said Palmer was admitted to the hospital Thursday for some cardiovascular work and weakened over the last few days.
