From Kim and Kanye to Chrissy and John, Hollywood’s A-List celeb couples were lit in celebration of the spooky season. By lit, I mean their pumpkins of course. Along with theirs, 1000’s of hand-carved Jack O’Lanterns illuminate the King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas for a family-friendly Halloween experience.
Last Thursday, was the 10th annual amfAR gala in Los Angeles.
Golden strobes flashed through the pitch black Park Theater as the words “Ricky Martin” began gleaming from above. Soon, the Latin pop sensation dropped down on floating platform with a spirit engorged in beaming enthusiasm. Wearing a gold tinted tuxedo jacket, a crisp white button-down shirt, and black bow tie, Ricky Martin unleashed the noise. “Livin’ la Vida Loca,” is one of the best-selling singles of all time and made his “All In” show attendees jump to their feet. As trumpets blared, show girls waving large feathers strutted from backstage making the follow-up song, “Shake Your Bon-Bon,” that much more Vegas-like.
IT IS OFFICIAL! Christina Aguilera is finally teaching a MasterClass…a MasterClass for EVERYONE! The multi-faceted diva, Christina Aguilera, released her first ever private singing course in May (and is available still for purchase).
MasterClass is an online singing experience that gives singers, instrumentalists, (and even those new to the music scene) a one-on-one experience with the extraordinary pop vocalist, who provides tips on voice control, diction, tips on performance anxiety, and a mental game plan to hit those high notes.
These are a few of the many assets that students of any vocal ability can gain from this course, and Christina sites examples from her own hit songs (“Fighter,” the vocal slide from “Ain’t No Other Man,” and others) for feedback demonstration.
MasterClass was co-founded by David Rogier and Aaron Rasmussen with the mission of providing everyone the opportunity to learn from the world’s best. Instructors such as Kevin Spacey, Usher, Serena Williams, James Patterson, and Dustin Hoffman have offered unique learning experiences that include exclusive materials and video, Q&A sessions with instructors, peer review, among other interactive and collaborative assignments. Classes are available online for purchase at www.masterclass.com for $90 each.
MasterClass is a definite Must Have with its exquisite presentation and professional instruction.
