THE ROYAL WEDDING

I was away from home on May 19, 2018.

I missed watching the royal wedding in real time.

My personal tradition has been to get up early and watch every bit of it.

I do have it recorded.

I’ve been catching up!

Here’s the surprising performance of this classic song by a UK gospel choir.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the newly named Duke and Duchess of Sussex, surprised their guests with a gospel choir doing a powerful rendition of “Stand By Me” during the royal wedding at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
The song is a significant choice.

First recorded by Ben E. King and released in 1961, it became an anthem for political progress and has been heard at many a black church service.
Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir, a London-based gospel choir, performed the song for the couple from the west end of St. George’s Chapel at the castle.

Awesome combination!

This season is amazing.

The contestants are incredibly talented.

Team Alicia Keys rocks out to ‘Gimme Shelter’ on ‘The Voice’ results show:

Britton Buchanan, Christiana Danielle, Jackie Foster

Tuesday night, May 1, 2018, on “The Voice,” Team Alicia Keys took a break from the competition to rock out to The Rolling Stones‘ “Gimme Shelter” during the live Top 11 results episode.

Britton Buchanan, Christiana Danielle and Jackie Foster accompanied their Grammy-winning coach Keys in an energetic rendition of the rock classic in front of the other judges and the lively studio audience.

Gimme Shelter” was written by the Rolling Stones’ lead vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, the band’s primary songwriting team. Richards began working on the song’s signature opening riff in London whilst Jagger was away filming Performance. As released, the song begins with Richards performing a guitar intro, soon joined by Jagger’s lead vocal.

Of Let It Bleed‘s bleak world view, Jagger said in a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone magazine:

Well, it’s a very rough, very violent era. The Vietnam War. Violence on the screens, pillage and burning. And Vietnam was not war as we knew it in the conventional sense. The thing about Vietnam was that it wasn’t like World War II, and it wasn’t like Korea, and it wasn’t like the Gulf War. It was a real nasty war, and people didn’t like it.

People objected and people didn’t want to fight it …

That’s a kind of end-of-the-world song, really.

It’s apocalypse; the whole record’s like that.

A cappella supergroup Pentatonix touched down with their highly anticipated new album PTX Presents: Top Pop, Vol. I and it is bursting with reimagined hits.

They hit the ground running in 2018 and are offering up their first full body of work with a new bass. All things considered, they have never sounded better.

Pentatonix, the a cappella quartet, released their latest album of covers, PTX Presents: Top Pop Vol. 1 on Friday (April 13). The group has followed the premiere of the album with a new video – this time for their take on Ed Sheeran’s”Perfect”.

For “Perfect“, the well-dressed singers harmonize in various rooms of a muted old-school building as baritone Scott Hoying takes lead.

At the video’s peak, cellist Kevin Olusola’s solo leads to a ballerina pirouetting, right before the group joins in on the swoon of a chorus.

Jesus Christ Superstar …. “🎼🇬🇧🎼 Live in Concert …. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice 🎼🇬🇧🎼 …. “!!

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

O-M-G!

~Thy Rock ‘N’ Roll Holiness Electrifies In Amped Up Musical Event~

Yesterday, on Easter Sunday, I was visiting family to celebrate the occasion.
I had set my DVR in case I wasn’t home before the show began … and that was the case.

You see, back in 1970, when the LP was released, it became one of my favorite musical ever. I would stay in my room, lyrics in hand, headphones in place … till the wee hours in the morning listening to the music over and over.

Watching the show last night lead to many happy memories and moments of amazing flashbacks.

To my surprise, I remembered most of the lyrics.

For me, back then, the musical represented a state of the times … these being the times of Jesus Christ and the times when the musical production was released. To me, it was an attempt to explain the story of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Judas, the Apostles and the politico-social reality of the era. It was also an attempt to bring humanity to the characters.

JC1

I found it quite interesting that 48 years after the initial release, the message still rang true and applied to the times we are currently living.

I definitely loved the concert.

I think the set, the musicians, the development concepts and the performances were beyond amazing.

John Legend, Sara Barielles, Alice Cooper and Brandon Victor Dixon were flawless. 

In other words, I loved it!

It’s great that I have it recorded and can watch it over and over and over.

I will buy the DVD for sure when it’s released!

Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical started as a rock opera concept album before its Broadway debut in 1971.

The musical is mostly sung-through, with little spoken dialogue. The story is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’s life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It depicts political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible.

The work’s depiction offers a free interpretation of the psychology of Jesus and the other characters. A large part of the plot focuses on the character of Judas, who is depicted as a tragic figure dissatisfied with the direction in which Jesus steers his disciples. Contemporary attitudes and sensibilities (as well as slang) pervade the lyrics, and ironic allusions to modern life are scattered throughout the depiction of political events. Stage and film productions accordingly contain many intentional anachronisms.

It’s only appropriate that NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert aired on Easter Sunday.

There is no better way to celebrate the Holy holiday than with an Easter egg hunt in the day and a live TV adaptation of an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical at night. And when it comes to NBC live musical events, Jesus Christ Superstar ranks at the top.

What could have felt like a dated rock opera was more like an uproarious arena concert filled with screaming fans, frenetic lights, blaring speakers, pyrotechnics and a group of musicians and performers fueled with the spirit of a chaotic electric guitar wildly flailing about – just how Jesus would have wanted it.

After recently announcing a huge North American tour, booming acapella group Pentatonix are back again with their latest visual, for their insane mash up of Dua Lipa’s recent smash “New Rules” and Aaliyah’s 1998 classic “Are You That Somebody?”

The video, which takes place in a lavish hotel room over looking a serene city-scape, begins with a single shot, panning from member to member, as the group builds a sleek blend of both song’s beats, before singer Scott Hoying bounces back and forth from Aaliyah to Dua Lipa.

The group all meet up at the chorus, as a stream of harmony pours over the vocalized production, “I’ve got new rules, I count ’em/Are you that somebody? Tell me you’re that Somebody,” they croon on the hook.

FIEBRE

(FEVER)

My favorite Puerto Rican singer, a man of my young teenage and young adult dreams, my favorite male representative of my LGBT community … he’s at it again!

And he delivers!! 

Need to take my mind off the usual routine and sad reality we are living

It’s Friday … a typical day for celebration and fun.

Enjoy his new video.

Ricky Martin just premiered his new song “Fiebre” featuring Wisín and Yandel and its music video.

Yes, that’s right, the dynamic duo is back!

The newly married singer decided on Puerto Vallarta as the location for his new music video.

And because the 46-year-old star never disappoints, this video is just as steamy as the song.
