Take A Moment…

27 Feb

In life one of the greatest gifts in my opinion is music. Music has the ability to transcend generations, races, and gender, and one of my favourite genres is R&B. This genre, although mainly dominated with songs about love and love making, at times produces music about subjects that truly make you see things in a different light.

Miguel is the perfect balance of these expectations. His album ‘Kaleidoscope Dream’ most definitely has songs about love such as, ‘Do You’ and ‘Adorn’ but the amazing thing is that he balances that with a beautiful song called ‘Candles In The Sun’ which I’m obsessed with. The lyrics are beautiful, the video a piece of cinematic art, his message strong, and his voice haunting.

RTA Harlem Shake

12 Feb

If you haven’t heard, there is a new viral video called ‘The Harlem Shake’ making its way around the internet

Seeing that I’m in a Radio and Television Arts Program, it was only fitting that we make our own version.ย Our professor was gracious enough to let us film near the end of our lecture in the massive AMC theatre! This video could not be possible without the organization of one of our fellow students Michael and the enthusiasm of my RTA Family!

Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Mrs. Carter World Tour!!!

4 Feb

Last night Beyonce was absolutely incredible during her halftime performance. I, as well as many millions of people around the world would love to be able to command a stage like she can. All she has to do is stand and smize (smiling with your eyes) just the slightest bit, and she can have crowds of thousands screaming in disbelief. She has that IT factor that is intangiable. Along wih her flawless voice and killer bod, the Destiny’s Child reunion had me giddy and brought me back to my childhood.

Wait There’s More!

As a good friend of mine, William Reid, would say, hold onto your life alert kids! If a Destiny’s Child reunion and Beyonce at the halftime show wasn’t enough, Queen Bey announced that she will be going on a WORLD TOUR! I just about lost it after this announcement. I have been fortunate enough to attend one Beyonce concert in my life, and now with this world tour, I’ll be able to experience her talent in person for the second time!

As you can probably tell, I can barely contain my enthusiasm! Her concerts are truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I’m so excited that she will be coming back to Toronto.

Even though I don’t have tickets, because they are not even on sale yet, I’m very hopeful that I’ll be able to snag one up before they’re sold out and attend this concert of a lifetime.

Mrs. Carter World Tour here I come!

Our Deepest Fear…

28 Jan

Last night I watched ‘Coach Carter’. Though I’ve seen this movie close to a dozen times, I think many people would agree that it never gets old.

One of my favourite parts of the movie is when the character Timo Cruz recites Nelson Mandela’s Inaugural Speech. It is such a powerful quote and equally powerful part of the movie.ย I absolutely love the message in his speech and this is the inspiration I’m holding close with me this week and in life!!

Happy Monday ๐Ÿ™‚

Natalie (Song Sundays)

20 Jan

My song of the week is ‘Natalie’ by Bruno Mars.

Last Sunday I finally downloaded Bruno Mars’ latest album ‘Unorthodox Juxebox’ and after his last album ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ I had very high expectations for his latest music. Luckily for me I wasn’t disappointed. The album was a great mix of pop, blues and a touch of reggae.

Besides his chart topper ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’, one song that really jumped out at me was ‘Natalie’. It first caught my attention because the title of the song is the same name as one of my best friends, so I had to listen to it first.

The song talks about a girl who took advantage of him and stole all of money and he’s talking about and plotting his revenge. I thought it was really interesting and very different from songs we’re used to hearing about, which generally deal with love and heartbreak. I’m not quite sure if this song was written about actual experiences in Bruno Mars’ life, but the the lyrics and the composition of the song really created an authentic feel and that’s why it’s my song of the week.
