So I found this video in my Facebook feed this morning and felt that it was a great piece to show you all. This is true raw talent and I can see this kid doing wonderful things with a guitar in the near future. Have a look at this video and you will see what I mean. His name is Swan Berger and I found some information on him here —>http://acousticguitarvideos.com/4715/swan-berger-natural-talent/



Kristin Chenoweth finds diamond in the rough in Sarah Horn

Kristen Chenoweth & Sarah HornKristin Chenoweth Discovers Sarah Horn

When Kristin Chenoweth invited fan Sarah Horn on stage to sing the Wicked duet “For Good” at the Hollywood Bowl last Friday, she had no idea she was about to blow some minds — including her own.

Horn, later revealed to be a Southern California voice teacher and musical theater lover, stunned so many with her tremendous chops that she was immediately branded a ringer.

But in a first hand account published by Broadway World, Horn explains exactly how this magical moment came to pass:

Toward the end of the second half of the performance, Kristin wanders on to the pasarel. She held a mic up to a lady in front of me and asked if she knew the song “For Good.” Nope. I took the chance, as I was directly behind Kristin, to stand up and wave and say, “I know the song!” This is not like me – to jump up and wave my arms like a crazy person and raise my voice at a celebrity. One of Kristin’s backup singers held a mic up to my face so I could answer some questions: “What’s you’re name?” – “Sarah.” “Who’s your favorite Broadway star?” I sarcastically hummm as if it’s a difficult question to answer. “Do you know the song ‘For Good’?” – “Yes. It’s one of my favorites.” This seemed to peak (sic) her interest. After this, she moved down the line and asked a guy if he knew the song and bantered with him for a few seconds. Afterwards, she said something about going back to pick me because I was a girl. Then, she invited me up on stage.




Justin Timberlake Goes Heavy – Channeling Michael Jackson and Slayer – On Nashville Rocks

Justin Timberlake Goes Heavy for the CW

I have to say that I usually won’t post things like this, but DANG! I have too. If you know me, then you know my heart belongs to Rock-n-Roll and the heavier the better until you start screaming garbage or grunting like a hog or Bigfoot. So to my surprise two worlds collided for me with this video. One, I’m not afraid to admit that I used to be a gigantic Michael Jackson fan. If you know anything about Michael, then you have to know that most of what Justin Timberlake is doing is directly from his Michael Jackson music influences. So when I saw this video and JT and Michael Jackson and heavy metal were all smashed up like a freak at a sideshow, you know I HAD to love it.
Yes, I was a fan of the early Rock/Rap mashups from names like Run DMC and Aerosmith and, most notably by me, Anthrax. And lets not forget that Slayer was the metal band to put the huge tones on the first Beastie Boys tune. So please take the time to watch this excellent convergence of metal and pop harkening back to the “good ole days.”
