ARETHA FRANKLIN …. “💞🎼 Queen of Soul Replaces Pavarotti …. Singing ‘NESSUN DORMA’ 🎼💞 …. “!!

ARETHA FRANKLIN

 Nessun Dorma

What can I say?

Words fail me. Let the video speak for itself.

Aretha Franklin performs at the Festival of Families as Pope Francis looks on Sept. 26, 2015 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

BUT BEFORE … 

One amazing performance came in 1998.

It was 30 minutes into the 1998 Grammy Awards and Gary Simmons, the assistant to the show’s co-producer, Tisha Fein, got a phone call:

Luciano Pavarotti would not be performing.

Franklin had been booked on the show to perform a Blues Brothers number with Dan Aykroyd, John Goodman and Jim Belushi. Two nights before, however, she had actually performed “Nessun Dorma” in honor of Pavarotti at a Music Cares dinner. The Grammys producer had an empty hole where Pavarotti’s performance was supposed to be, crossing into the third hour of the show.

Could she possibly …?

Aret

Luciano Pavarotti, too unwell to perform at the Grammy Awards, was replaced at the last minute by the Queen of Soul herself, who was a friend of the opera singer.

However, instead of opting for one of her own hits, Franklin stuck with the aria most synonymous with Pavarotti, “Nessun Dorma”.

More than a billion viewers watched live on TV  across the world on as Franklin hit the Puccini number’s signature high B with ease, stunning the 1998 Grammy Awards audience in Radio City Music Hall and sending the jaws of artists including Celine Dion to the floor.

Several years later, Franklin performed the track yet again – this time for Pope Francis at a show in Philadelphia.

 “The ability to own something this hard, that’s not her own or from her own experience, she didn’t write it, in another language and still communicate so much, not to mention doing it last second, on such a major stage.”

BRIAN KING JOSEPH 

~Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent has begun~

I’m amazed at this performer’s talent and his personal story.

He started playing the violin as a child. He showed incredible talent and continued down his musical path.

As life has it, as an adult, he has been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy.

His hands and feet are affected by this chronic condition.

He doesn’t know how long he will be able to continue playing the violin.

These performances have caught my heart!

He auditioned and was selected at the Judges Cut for the live shows. 

Hope you enjoy it!

Playing for Change …. “💞🎼 ‘Ahoulaguine Akaline’ …. featuring Bombino 🎼💞 …. “!!


~~August 3, 2018~~ 

PLAYING FOR CHANGE

Song Around The World

I started following Playing for Change a few years ago.

I think the work they do and the way they present music from around the world is amazing.

Music is the universal language.

Here’s a new song that I found traversing through the internet today.

I hope you enjoy it!

~Ahoulaguine Akaline featuring Bombino~

Song Around The World

“Before, our music had the reputation of rebellion, but now it’s the opposite.”

Bombino

The title of this song translates to “I greet my country” and it was written by the great guitar player, Bombino, about his home in Niger after he spent years in exile.

Extremists and the leaders of the country tried to ban the guitar as a symbol of the rebellion.

Bombino once said,

“I do not see my guitar as a gun but rather as a hammer with which to help build the house of the Tuareg people.”

The unity of musicians around the world playing on this song is a statement that music is part of the foundation from which we rebuild our humanity and our world together.

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2018

~We Three~

THE POWER OF MUSIC

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent has begun

I finally am caught up with the recorded episodes.

Music is powerful. It heals, it inspires, it speaks.

In season 13, NBC’s America’s Got Talent follows Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel, and host Tyra Banks in their talent search, showcasing unique performers from across the country.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

We Three will be hitting the stage again in the third round of judge cuts on ‘AGT.’ This sibling band stole our hearts when they first performed.

Here’s what you need to know about them!

Avery Thompson

The judge cuts continue on America’s Got Talent season 13

1. Mel B and Tyra Banks cried during We Three’s first audition. The siblings – Josh, Bethany, and Manny – performed their original song “Heaven’s Not Too Far Away.” The song was written in the perspective of their mother, who passed away from cancer two years ago. The performance moved Mel B to tears because she also lost her father to cancer.

2. Their mother tragically died from cancer, and they honor her through music. Josh, Bethany, and Manny’s mom was diagnosed with cancer in Sept. 2015 and died four months later, according to KGW8. Writing “Heaven’s Not Too Far Away” was therapeutic for the siblings.

“I think it was so impactful because it was like we got to have another conversation with her.

Every time we listen to it, we get to have another conversation with her,” Manny told the outlet.

3. We Three has released a number of songs already. On the band’s official website, We Three has a number of songs available for fans to listen to, including “Lifeline” and a 4-song EP.

4. They want to “spread light and love” with their music. Fame has nothing to do with why these siblings want to make music. “It’s our way to connect with people, spread light and love and spread the vision of hope for a better tomorrow,” they told Portland Notes. 

“We hope to encourage and support people right where they’re at in their lives through our music.”

5. All three band members know how to play instruments and sing. They all took private lessons on the piano and later explored other instruments, they also revealed to Portland Notes. Josh plays piano and drums, while Bethany plays bass. Manny plays the guitar. “We learned to sing and play simultaneously,” they told the outlet.
