Creating Constant Fan Connection - Michael Angelo Releases EP

"In The Light Of The Moon"

Michael-Angelo, Montreal’s eclectic pop-rocker, gets set to release his second album, “The Life: a Song Project,” in an innovative way. January 27th will see the release of a four track EP, called "In The Light of The Moon" the first part of the new album, which will be followed by a second EP and finally, the release of the entire album later this year. The innovative idea stems from the artist’s goal of sharing his music with his fans as soon as it is produced.

"Releasing In the Light of the Moon allows my fans to hear my future album as I'm producing it, creating a constant connection and allowing me to keep playing shows and do a little bit of everything instead of the long cycle of compose, record, promote, sell, tour, etc..." says Michael Angelo. "I'm basically taking advantage of technology and sharing my songs right away instead of waiting a whole year for the album to be complete and be heard."

How important is music in a movie?

Think of the shower scene in “Psycho”. The knife appears. Picture it coming down through the air, again and again. What do you hear? Scree! Scree! Scree! You hear composer Bernard Hermann’s screeching violins on the soundtrack. The image of the knife is so deeply connected to the music that you can’t imagine one without the other.

Top 10 Love Songs

Love songs are a fundamental part of pop music. Most of us can think of particular songs we associate with the love relationships of our lives. Taken from the Top Chart Songs on Cashbox – The Crush- Love Songs Breakup.

THE LOVE SONGS

1. Beyonce featuring Jay-Z - "Crazy In Love" (2003)
As she stepped out on her own for the first time away from the group Destiny's Child, Beyonce chose this deliriously happy, romantic tune featuring raps from her main squeeze Jay-Z. The boys from Philadelphia have recorded many songs about love and romance. This one is perhaps the best song ever recorded for a prelude to a magical night with a lover.

THE BREAKUP

1. Abba - Knowing Me, Knowing You (1977)
The majestic pop of Abba is particularly effective here detailing the walk through an empty house and memories of "old familiar rooms children would play in" when a relationship has come to an end.

2. Cher - Believe (1999)
Cher is someone with a bit of firsthand experience at relationships coming to an end. "Believe" is an inspirational dance classic providing encouragement to make it through the pain. It became the biggest hit of Cher's long career.

3. Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive (1979)

Susan Boyle: Dreams Really Do Come True – Just Have Faith & Believe

I Dream a Dream

By Natasha Slinko

It is said that dreams do come true, and on January 21st 2009, Scottish-born Susan Boyle took one extraordinary leap of faith to achieve her dream by stepping completely out of her comfort zone, auditioning for Britain’s Got Talent to follow her one true passion – singing.

'I Dreamed A Dream’, a song made famous by the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical Les Misérables, was Boyle’s song of choice.

Boyle stepped onto the stage, only to be ridiculed by the judges and the audience alike, as they assumed and promptly judged a book by its cover, disvaluing anything else that was present, such as the human heart and the human spirit. How brave and resilient she was in the light of their scorn.

Then history was made as Boyle began to sing “I dream a dream in time gone by, when hope was high, and life worth living. I dreamed that love would never die, I dreamed that God would be forgiving…” You could have heard a pin drop.

Bieber said "I started singing about three years ago," and "I entered a local singing competition called Stratford Idol. The other people in the competition had been taking singing lessons and had vocal coaches. I wasn't taking it too seriously at the time; I would just sing around the house. I was only 12 and I got second place."
