Flawless Duels performance

Watch Charity and Andres’s performance and read what the judges had to say – after they caught their breath!

Junior contemporary duo Charity Anderson, of Springville, and Andrés Peñate, of Vineyard, known as Charity and Andres, were shown achieving the first-ever combined perfect score of 100 on NBC’s “World of Dance” on Wednesday during the second Duals round.

Jennifer López

“It felt so new and disruptive, #disruptive. that blind jump onto his back, with him not even … ‘She’s just going to jump on my back right now.’ He knew it was coming. Like, if it’s timed – I don’t even understand what the hell! That was ‘The Matrix’!”

Ne-Yo

“Beyond the amazingness of the dance, a crystal-clear storyline, on top of the fact that you did things with your bodies that human beings just can’t do. How do you top that?”

Derek Hough

“There’s something to be said about when you choreography your own routines you know what you’re capable of doing. You know your limits. You know your strengths. And you guys choreographed a routine that didn’t just play to your strengths, it surpassed it. It transcended dance. It was so amazing.”

If you haven’t heard of the Fabulous Sisters from Japan they are a crew of ladies who live up to their name and more.

This past weekend at the World of Dance Finals in Los Angeles, they delivered a memorable diverse performance which earned them a spot in the Winners Circle and a video bound to receive well earned popularity in no time. In 2016 they received 1st place in youth division at the World of Dance Japan Qualifier.

Their style is an intense fusion of multiple styles of not only hip hop but contemporary, waacking, tutting, voguing, jazz funk, and intricate arm and hand placements.

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.

W3-1

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.

YET ANOTHER HALLELUJAH COVER

~Little Girl Belts Out Hallelujah Next To Pentatonix Stars~

MUSIC IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much … This one is so very special:

Kaylee and Pentatonix!

Hope you enjoy this one!

11-Yr-Old Kaylee Johnson has gained legions of fans since her recent appearance on “Little Big Shots,” when famous a cappella group Pentatonix joined her in singing a rousing rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

But what many fans don’t realize is that the little girl was diagnosed at an early age with mild autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. According to her teachers, Kaylee rarely spoke, much less sang, until just recently.

But that all changed last year, not long before she shot to viral fame with a Christmas-themed remake of “Hallelujah” with her choir at Killard House Special School in Northern Ireland.

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2018

~Angel City Chorale~

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent is ongoing.

I finally am caught up with the recorded episodes.

Ever since this choir’s audition, I’ve been meaning to post the video of their performance.

They sang Toto’s ‘AFRICA’ then.

I can’t put it off any longer, they received the ‘Golden Buzzer’.

Hope you enjoy their talent as much as I have.

GoldSwirl

Big enough to take up an entire stage, the Angel City Chorale will be moving onto its biggest stage yet – broadcast live on “America’s Got Talent.”

Competing against 17 other acts during the Judges’ Cut round, Angel City Chorale took the Golden Buzzer and one of the coveted seven spots in the next round of the competition.

The Los Angeles-based choir was founded in 1993 by Sue Fink. Fink said she wanted to create an environment for everyone to feel welcomed.

“Los Angeles is a maze,” Fink said. “It’s a huge city. I wanted to create a small community of singers that felt like they had a home.”

Diversity isn’t just a strength, but the group’s selling point. The choir is made up of people of all different walks of life coming together to celebrate their joys and comfort each other during their low moments. One of the members lost his son before joining the group.

ACC4

“We try to represent diversity: different religions, different ages,” Fink said onstage. “We’re white, black, rich, poor, gay, straight. Even Republicans and Democrats can sit next to each other in our group.”

The pressure was on to top their audition performance of Toto’s “Africa.”

The Tony winner and late-night host offers his own version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein favorite

This was the first time the popular sketch aired in primetime (as part of his third Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special) and therefore, he welcomed a host of CBS stars as guest performers in the troupe.

Oscar winner and Tony nominee Allison Janney and Anna Faris of Mom, Kunal Nayyar of The Big Bang Theory, and Iain Armitage of Young Sheldon took part in the presentation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.

Watch as Janney and Corden both take on the role of Maria and the cast performs standards as “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” “The Lonely Goatheard,” and “Do Re Mi.”

When they auditioned for “America’s Got Talent” on June 19, Voices of Hope Children’s Choir were not able to convince Howie Mandel to give them a yes vote.

They had wowed the crowd and the other three judges (Simon Cowell, Mel B and Heidi Klum) with their performance of the power anthem “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.”

This time around, they upped their game and their choir director promised they were “more tight and solid on the vocals.” And indeed they were.  In the video, watch this group of 70 kids from Orange County wow with their harmonies on “How Far I’ll Go” from “Moana” the Oscar-nominated song by  Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”).

GoldSwirl

~Live-blogger John Benutty observed~

“The song started with a series of three female solos before erupting into a full-choir harmony at the first chorus. Full disclosure, the song is one of my favorite Disney songs and at the peak of their performance I literally had chills!

Mel felt the performance strongly too because she got emotional, as did Ken who after Heidi and Simon sent in their support hit his golden buzzer and sent the choir straight through to the live shows!

You could tell during the performance that he might do it because he seemed utterly speechless.”

James Corden has set a very high standard with his Carpool Karaoke TV pieces. Only a million or two viewers watch him on CBS’ The Late Late Show when it’s broadcast, but YouTube and other social media sites extend Corden’s reach phenomenally.

A new one showcasing Sir Paul McCartney stands above all others.

In only a few days, it’s been viewed on YouTube more than 14 million+ times – and with very good reason. Not only does it have all the happiness and goofiness you expect Corden to deliver but this McCartney karaoke is also unexpectedly tender, touching and meaningful.
