Love it, or hate it? The Irony of Beyonce’s Album Release + Rolling Stone Tests R. Kelly

Danielle W Carter at The Boys & Girls Club Charity Art Event, Santa Monica

Have a great weekend!  

Do you love it, or hate it?  Hot topics…

  • NBC’s Californians  A blast from the past for a little chuckle!  Ever had a conversation about traffic in the Los Angeles?  CLICK HERE for a “knee slapper.”  
  • Beyonce’s album release is all the rage because she DID NOT promote it.  She let everyone else do the talking starting at 12AM on Friday the 13th.  As a major artist not promoting your album is a big deal!
  • The irony is that indie artists have been dropping albums with no promotion for decades with no comparable press reaction.  As an emerging artist, is it possible to top that release?  It has yet to be seen but we can focus on making quality music and letting it go viral online.
  • What If You Don’t Like Beyonce’s Album?”  Basically,  you’ll be hooked once you watch the videos and take a second listen.  The buzz and sales growth of this album is undeniable, especially in this evolving music climate.
  • R. Kelly sings about dolphins and sub sandwiches on the spot in this Rolling Stone interview Improvises “Sex Dolphin,” “Italian Hero Sandwich of Love” Parental Discretion Advised  
  • There are some things in life that you just can’t take too seriously.  At the end of the day, life should be fun!  Love the process.  R. Kelly (no matter how you feel about him today) finds the fun in improvising.  He is given four random topics to write about on the spot.  A reminder that there are no rules.

As many of you know, we are in the studio making the first studio album!  So grateful to everyone who joined VIP thus far to support and help make this happen!  We are uncovering a unique fusion of sound for the Dani W Project, including Funk Rock, Hip Pop, and more.  Excited to share this project with you!

Live @ the Troubadour with Mark Ballas

Mark Ballas is giving a heart felt performance live at the Troubadour right now! He has a Bruno Mars, Michael Buble, Robin Thick feel with a mean blues groove in some songs. His band is absolutely on it tonight! Glad I came out tonight.

Another great show is Nina Storey. Tuesday, January 8th at Hotel Cafe. 9pm new album will be featured! You’ll catch me singing background with the band on stage as well. See you there!

Here’s his bio from the Troubadour website:

A lifelong dancer and musician, Emmy nominated Mark Ballas has wowed over 20 million viewers on ABC’s number one show, “Dancing with the Stars,” for eight seasons. No stranger to the coveted mirror ball trophy, he is a two-time champion (Season 6 with Kristi Yamaguchi and Season 8 with Shawn Johnson), and caused a media frenzy when he took performance newcomer Bristol Palin all the way to the finals in Season 11. Mark garnered a 2011 Creative Arts Emmy nomination for Outstanding Choreography for his creative pieces during Season 12, where he and his partner, Disney star Chelsea Kane, made it to the finals, finishing in third place. This season, he and his partner, Katherine Jenkins, danced in the finals, finishing in second place. On April 12th, Mark’s debut solo album HurtLoveBox, was released by Hit Play Records – Sony Red. A true passion project, HurtLoveBox is an intimate, personal journey of the trials and tribulations of life and relationships. His first single “Hotwire” was the winner of MTV’s Freshman Five for 2011 and has been put in rotation on the network. Thus far, it has received over 100 million documented views, and appeared on feature reels in over 100,000 retail and business locations worldwide. Mark was named the Clear Channel “Artist To Watch” in July, 2011. Born in Houston to a family of international dance stars, Mark moved to London as a child, where he attended the world-renowned Italia Conti Performing Arts School and graduated with honors. Here, he was required to not only dance, but also sing, act and play an instrument. He began playing the guitar at the age of ten, training in classic flamenco. By age 12 was writing and performing his own music, playing guitar, drums and bass. With guitar influences ranging from Kurt Cobain, Paco de Lucia, Gypsy Kings, John Mayer and Eric Clapton, Mark is carving out his own niche in the music word. His rhythmic style and soulful melodies showcase his talent not only as an accomplished singer, but also as a skilled guitar player. As an actor, Mark has played the lead in the musical Copacabana. He also took on roles in the UK tour of Maria de Buenos Aires, and was an understudy in the London Palladium production of Buddy, The Buddy Holly Musical, which one the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical. In television, he has guest starred on “Melissa and Joey” and “Samantha Who?”. When Mark isn’t performing, he is passionate about speaking to school age kids about acceptance. While on his 50 city acoustic tour this winter, Mark carved out time to visit schools in each city to discuss this topic. Six years ago, Mark and his family were forever altered by the suicide of his Uncle David. Through the grieving process, Mark and his mother Shirley (David’s sister) began to align themselves with The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. By forming The Ballas Foundation in the fall of 2010, Mark and Shirley are committed to removing the stigma associated with mental illness and suicide by raising money, awareness, and volunteerism in support of suicide awareness. While suicide is a somber and sometimes taboo subject, Mark’s discussions with school kids are upbeat, uplifting, and fun, delivering his message in a light manner that is easy to absorb with peers. Mark believes that if we accept everyone for who they are, the lives lived by kids who are considered “different” will be easier, paving the way for all kids to grow into themselves and flourish in life.
