If you haven't heard of Antoine Dodson before now, where have you been? Let's get one thing straight: this isn't a funny situation. The guy really is commendable for saving his sister. However, I dare you to watch this without laughing. Be sure to check out the Bed Intruder Remix which is, as of right now, the #34 song on iTunes (and as of 8/20/2010 #89 on the Billboard Hot 100!). Awesome.
The Hiroshima anniversary was a couple days ago. I always watch this when I need a little humility in my life.
How much do I love Audra McDonald? Too much. A cruise ship in Mexico, conducting the audience, two unexpected key changes, flipping off the pianist, and absolutely rocking it. She is simply a living legend. How can you not love her?
This is so my little brothers.
So, I'm not a fan of Andrew Lloyd Webber. At ALL. And I'm REALLY not a fan of Phantom of the Opera....not one bit. I laughed when I heard he was writing a sequel (Love Never Dies, currently playing in London). I laughed even harder when I heard the premise of the story. He did cast two of my favorite performers, Sierra Boggess and Ramin Karimloo, in the lead roles. I've heard most of the music; it's pretty bad. This song however? Incredible. Easily my favorite song by Webber. And, can I just say I want to be Ramin when I grow up? Ladies, brace yourselves before you watch this.
Me, Myself, and I has always been one of my favorites. Anyone that denies her ability as a vocalist is deaf. She's not particularly difficult to look at either. This one's more calm and controlled, this one is just plain fierce.
This is my favorite music video. It always makes me think.
I remember hearing about this story in the news years ago. I remember everyone talking about this guy in church and how he was such a great example. I don't think I appreciated his story until I saw this. Prepare yourself before watching it. It's difficult to watch, but carries the most beautiful message imaginable.
