I have a ritual when I sit down to watch Marvel movies. My phone is in another room. I settle into my favorite seat, crank up the volume, and lose myself in the world the latest film transports me to.

“Eternals” marked the introduction of new characters and notably, the most diverse cast Marvel Studios has recruited. The inclusion of an entire Bollywood dance sequence was something I hadn’t expected – plus a British South Asian singer leading the way with the only original playback song.

Born in Australia, Celina Sharma moved to the UK at the age of 16 to pursue her passion for music. The singer-songwriter now divides his time between London and Los Angeles while continuing to shape his career.

Co-writing and singing the only original song from a Marvel movie is a career-defining moment. How did all this happen? Sharma explained,

Thanks to social media, “Eternals” director Chloe Zhao saw me singing covers on Instagram, and it all really started from there. To have this opportunity to be part of the “Eternals” soundtrack is so surreal because I grew up watching Marvel movies and have always been a fan.

Writing and singing a song for a Bollywood sequence in a Marvel movie is no small feat. The pressure to maintain this balance by staying true to the script but also seizing the opportunity to portray South Asian culture must have weighed on Sharma. How did she find a song that satisfied both needs?

We were given a description of what the stage would look like, so I had inspiration to guide me for the lyrics of the song. I wanted to incorporate Indian influences into the song because the scene had a Bollywood vibe. There was a lot of dancing involved, so I thought the track should have some catchy, upbeat moments to fit the vibe.

When listening to any of Sharma’s songs, you will immediately notice how smooth and powerful her voice is. Her distinct sound becomes easy to place the more you listen to her and while you get an idea of ​​the kind of sound she’s looking to evoke, there was more to the original number than just lending her vocals.

As I was writing the song, melodically I wanted to add a bit more flair with the use of ad-libs and harmonies. Since the song was more upbeat and lively, I wanted to deliver an energetic performance, so people could capture the mood of the scene.

Music platforms and social media present a different measure of the success of music today. Something Sharma recently experienced with her song “24/7,” which amassed 50 million global streams.

I’ve been amazed at how quickly 24/7 TikTok and Instagram reels have grown globally into markets I never could have imagined, like Indonesia or Germany. Over a million videos have been created using the song in less than a month, which is crazy. Seeing “24/7” being listened to around the world now is such a blessing, and I’m so happy to see people connecting with the song the way they are. I received so much love and support, for which I am grateful.

That’s a positive sign, especially for a South Asian-born artist breaking into the mainstream music industry. Creative careers are often frowned upon by the South Asian community or discouraged altogether, however, there is no denying Sharma’s talent and passion.

Besides the cultural challenges surrounding creative careers, Sharma is also aware of the challenges within the industry.

As a half-Indian person and an artist who wants to achieve mainstream success, one of the main challenges is that when you look at the Billboard charts or the Hot Hits playlist on Spotify, you will rarely see anyone who is just from India. a South Asian heritage. . There is and has been a real lack of role models for South Asians in the mainstream when considering the global “South Asian” population.

We’ve seen recent breakthroughs with the likes of Tesher’s “Jalebi Baby” and other South Asian talent like MIA and Charli XCX. However, if there are so many passionate South Asian artists waiting in the wings, what is stopping the mainstream industry from investing in and further developing this talent?

I think one of the main reasons is that the industry doesn’t really understand South Asian culture and how to position it for the general public, due to a lack of knowledge, expertise and experience in main buildings. Artists who have had global ambitions are often considered merely “South Asian” artists for South Asian audiences rather than considered the top 40 global artists for global audiences.

One thing is for sure, Sharma’s work with Marvel’s “Eternals” won’t stay in a box. The occasion is one on which she reflects fondly.

There have been plenty of highlights so far, but if I had to pick one, it would be attending the ‘Eternals’ premiere in Los Angeles and getting a chance to see the amazing Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek, and then watching the movie and seeing my song in the movie was a proud moment for me!

At just 19, Sharma already shows an awareness of the difficulties facing South Asian artists, which she says she overcame “by having the right management and now with an independent label that understands my vision”.

If his current job is anything to go by, Sharma’s vision will only grow bigger and bigger. and will serve as an important role model for emerging South Asian musicians.

Bruce Whitfield, host of The Money Show

Singer Danny K (Daniel Koppel) bought the famous South African brand Sweets from Heaven.

The award-winning musician is the founder and CEO of KD Foods

It served him well during the Covid-19 pandemic, Danny K tells Bruce Whitfield.

The last couple of years have been very tough for the music industry so I’m lucky to have had this interest and this company…I’m in Dubai right now with Bell Foods…watching interesting things around food development…

Danny K, singer and CEO – KD Foods

He confirms that his KD Foods has had a relationship with Sweets from Heaven for four to five years, using some of its products.

I am proud to say that we are now the official owners of the brand and the company, all these years later.

Danny K, singer and CEO – KD Foods

It’s a fantastic brand that many South Africans grew up loving, myself included.

Danny K, singer and CEO – KD Foods

He acknowledges that Sweets from Heaven stores have been going through a tough time.

However, the intention was never to run retail stores, but to get the brand on prepackaged confectionery.

We may one day reopen stores, but for now the strategy is our pre-packaged confectionery and licensed brand app.

Danny K, singer and CEO – KD Foods

Even though the stores closed, I don’t think it tarnished the brand.

Danny K, singer and CEO – KD Foods

You’ll start to see the brand alongside all the “riders” like Maynards and Manhattan. We really think it has the legs and the legacy to be the next big candy brand in the country simply because it has been a part of our lives for so many years…

WARNING: This story contains graphic language that has been edited for publication.

***

Singer Richard Marx didn’t know what he was getting into on Thursday night when he tweeted about actor Ricky Schroeder backing American truckers backing their Canadian counterparts by using their vehicles as blockades in protest at trucking restrictions. COVID.

First, the original post from Thursday morning, with the video of Schroeder shared on Twitter by @patriottakes:

Former Silver Spoons child actor Ricky Schroder hopes “our truckers” will “shut down DC, shut down Sacramento, shut down Albany, shut down these states and this capital” to “eradicate this evil.”

Marx’s reaction: “Ricky Schroeder needs to keep his mouth shut.”

Among those who picked up the thread on Friday was the former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra: “MDR. #marxistD**k

And Dykstra was just beginning started:

Eh, shut the fuck up, Marxist D**k. At least he/she doesn’t have to worry about badass #TruckersForFreedom2022 get excited playing any of his horrible “music” calculated to be suitable for radio. Real men hate that bullshit, just like no one ever plays it at karaoke.

Although it would be fun to hear them play “Satisfied” (BADASS!!!!) or “Should’ve Known Better” (the ones where he/she “rocks”) as a tongue-in-cheek joke. Gotta love “Don’t Mean Nothing”, where he/she KEEPS IT TRUE about “the industry” when in real life Marx = the biggest asshole.

Then Dykstra stepped in to kill: “Richard Marx = the Ron Darling of pop music!!!!”

Mets fans no doubt remember the very public feud between Dykstra and Darling, who were teammates on the 1986 World Series-winning team. And Dykstra was not done:

Weak b**h who had an “in” in the music industry because of who his dad is, got the entrance because of it and had some pablum “hits” that appeal to the terrible Top 40 of the late 80s format and especially the Cat Ladies. Nobody ever sings theirs at karaoke because it sucks. Basically, he/she created stuff for Top 40 Radio that anyone else would be embarrassed about.

And that’s where things go wrong, because marx caught the bait:

Yeah, you love and admire traitorous female drummers. Aren’t you a badass?

So of course Dykstra had a rebuttal:

Bitch, I bet you won’t fucking say a word about Snoop Dogg, will you? Your music sucks. …

Oh, and re. “tough guy”, whenever you want, mano-a-mano, p***y.

Dykstra then tried to take him back to Marx’s music:

What is the most embarrassing lame #marxistD**k (@richardmarx) calculated-to-be-top-40-radio-friendly-enough song?

And of course, Marx couldn’t stand thistweeting to Dykstra:

Which of your arrests is the most embarrassing? Grand car theft, identity theft, filing false financial statements, possession of cocaine, fraudulent bankruptcy or INDECENT EXPOSURE?

That’s when Dykstra turned his volume up to 11 and came haywire with an epic tweet storm:

He “should have known better” then fuck patriot Rick Schroeder or Nails.

Anytime @richardmarx would like to discuss it in person. As bland and lame in real life as he/her “music”. Again, his fellow musicians even think he’s a creepy pathos. (At the time, in Top 40 format.) There’s a reason no one sings their “music” at karaoke.

Yes or no, @richardmarxwould you save your badass keyboard fight by handling this like men and fighting me in person?

Damn, do you wanna beat me or not?

Stop being an evasive little slut purveyor of pop music pablum calculated to be Top 40.

Sting sells his catalog of music, including hits he’s achieved with the police and as a solo artist, joining a chorus of stars cashing in with investors who see value in licensing their songs.

In recent months, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Stevie Nicks, Neil Young and others who have sold millions of albums to baby boomers have sold their recordings, their songwriting catalogs or both. Buyers usually get the permanent right to use the artist’s songs or recordings in commercials, movies, TV shows, and other formats.

Pricing is rarely disclosed, but music industry pundits put Springsteen’s sale to Sony Music Entertainment in December at $550 million and Dylan’s deal that same month with Universal Music Publishing Group at $300-500 million. of dollars.

Sting, real name Gordon Sumner, was involved in the creation of the police in London in the 1970s as a singer, songwriter and bassist. The group combined new wave rock, reggae and jazz and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.

Between his work with the band and as a solo artist, Sting has won 17 Grammy Awards and numerous other accolades. Universal said it has sold over 100 million albums.

In a statement released by Universal Music Group, Sting said he wants his work to be used to connect with longtime fans in new ways and “to introduce my songs to new audiences, musicians and generations.”

The word is very commonly used all over India but no singer has yet released a song that revolves around this word, that’s why Ravindra composed an entire song around the word “Jugaad”.

It was written by lyricist Rani Malik and the music is composed by Amandeep Singh. An interesting story follows behind the idea of ​​this song. While Ravindra with his R-Vision crew was touring in Rishikesh about 2 years ago, there were two local hill boys who were passionate about rap and wanted him to listen to their track which sounded like “Hai Koi Jugaad”; they used to practice rapping and singing for hours and really impressed Ravindra with this single word in their rap “Jugaad”. It had been stuck in his head all this time, under which he decided to create this song. The song is an original composition with the word “Jugaad” as the hook.

He also sang and launched songs like Jeena Issi Ka Naam Hai and Zindagi Phir Se Chalegi during the hard times of Covid 19; which has gained great recognition by online audiences. With the ever-changing times and pace of the music industry, there is always something new and exciting to come and a singer must engage in such developments to get the most out of their audience, that’s why Ravindra wasn’t stuck to one genre of music. music and composed romantic, patriotic, devotional and energetic songs. “Jugaad” is very different from all of Ravindra’s previous songs and he has literally expanded his comfort zone with this upcoming number. The song will be streamed on Ravindra’s R-Vision Melodies YouTube channel and will also be available on OTT platforms like Jiosaavn, Gaana, Wynk, Amazon music and Apple music.

CHIRADZULU, Malawi, Feb 8 (Reuters) – Malawian musician Giddes Chalamanda never dreamed in his 92 years that he could one day be famous enough to have dinner with the president followed by a night in a luxury hotel.

Last month the singer did both, thanks to his unlikely new stardom on TikTok, a social media platform popular with young people of four generations estranged from him – and which he cannot access because he has no no smartphone or even electricity to charge one.

Chalamanda’s ode to his daughter, “Linny Hoo” – a cheerful reggae track with drums and synthesizers – has been viewed more than 80 million times on the video-sharing site owned by Chinese tech giant ByteDance. Her fame launched her career locally, with multiple paid requests to perform live.

Putting his tiny lakeside southern African country on the digital map last month caught him the attention of President Lazarus Chakwera, who threw a party for Chalamanda’s 92nd birthday at the State House in Lilongwe .

“I didn’t expect to be invited to State House. It was such an honour,” Chalamanda told Reuters from his red-brick house in his village of Chiradzulu, a green area of ​​macademia and coffee plantations in 30 km (18 miles) northeast of the commercial capital, Blantyre.

“The president asked me for my opinion on the music industry and the arts in Malawi,” the singer added, before launching into a banjo tune.

He received a blanket and a pair of leather shoes from Chakwera, and together they sang one of Chalamanda’s songs: “Azimayi a Malawi”, which means “Malawi Women”.

In his state of the nation address on Thursday, the president said at one point, “Ours is no ordinary nation. Ours is home to the beautiful sounds of Giddes Chalamanda.”

Born in 1930 in Chirazulu, Chalamanda started playing music at the age of 12.

“I didn’t get far with school. British colonial teachers…thought I looked too old to be in class,” he recalls – he doesn’t remember how old he was then.

He took odd jobs in the tobacco industry, playing guitar on weekends in bars. Over the past decade he has managed to perform in Germany and the United States.

But he was overwhelmed by the popularity of ‘Linny Hoo’. The song, he said, carries “a message to young people to have good manners in helping their elderly parents with household chores like sweeping the yard and fetching water”.

It remains to be seen how many of its millions of young viewers take that message to heart.

NEW DELHI – Lata Mangeshkar, a legendary Indian singer with a prolific and groundbreaking catalog and a voice recognized by more than a billion people in South Asia, has died. She was 92 years old.

The iconic singer died of multiple organ failure on Sunday morning at Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai, her doctor, Dr Pratit Samdani, told reporters. She was hospitalized on January 11 after contracting COVID-19. She was taken off the ventilator after her condition improved in late January, but her health deteriorated on Saturday and was put back on life support.

Mangeshkar was given a state funeral and Prime Minister Narendra Modi came from New Delhi to pay his last respects.

Modi laid a wreath next to Mangeshkar’s body, wrapped in the Indian flag, as thousands of people, including Bollywood stars and politicians, thronged to Mumbai’s iconic Shivaji Park where she was cremated at amidst the chanting of Vedic hymns and a special canon salute.

India’s public broadcaster, Doordarshan, transmitted live scenes of the cremation to a grieving nation as Mangeshkar’s songs played in the background.

India has declared two days of national mourning and lowered the country’s flags until Monday.

Messages of condolences poured in immediately after the news of Mangeshkar’s death.

Defense forces carry the body of Lata Mangeshkar during her funeral in Mumbai, India on February 6, 2022. The legendary Indian singer with a prolific and groundbreaking catalog and a voice recognized by a billion people in South Asia, is died Sunday morning of multiple organ failure. She was 92 years old.
PA

“I’m distressed beyond words,” Modi said in a tweet. “She leaves a void in our country that cannot be filled. Future generations will remember her as a pillar of Indian culture, whose melodious voice had an unparalleled ability to hypnotize people.

For nearly eight decades, Mangeshkar has been a major presence as a playback singer, singing songs that were later lip-synched by actors in lavish Indian Bollywood musicals. She was also fondly revered as “Melody Queen” and “Nightingale of India”.

Mangeshkar’s songs, always filled with emotion, were often sad and mostly about unrequited love, but others involved national pride and were used to motivate Indians and the country’s defense forces in times of war with neighboring Pakistan and China.

Born in Indore on September 28, 1929, Mangeshkar first sang at religious gatherings with her father, who was also a trained singer. After moving to Mumbai, the capital of India’s film industry, she became a star with immensely popular appeal, enchanting audiences with her smooth yet cutting voice and immortalizing Hindi music for decades to come.

Few musicians have defined versatility like Mangeshkar, who released her first song in 1942 for a Bollywood film when she was just 13 years old. Soon after, she became a Hindi singing icon, lending her voice to over 5,000 songs in over a thousand Bollywood and regional languages. movies. She sang for Bollywood’s first female superstars like Madhubala and Meena Kumari and later gave voice to modern divas like Priyanka Chopra.

Mangeshkar was still in her twenties when she was already established as one of the top playback singers in India. But his career-defining moment came in the historical epic “Mughal-e-Azam,” a romantic tragedy released in 1960. His soundtrack “Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya?” (Why Be Afraid If You’re In Love?) is considered one of Bollywood’s most memorable films, one that over the decades has become an undisputed embodiment of the often rebellious nature of love.

Throughout his career Mangeshkar has worked with almost every legendary Indian music manager including Madan Mohan, Naushad, SD Burman, RD Burman, Laxmikant-Pyarelal duo and AR Rahman selling tens of millions of records. She has also won dozens of singing awards, earning her a status close to that of a saint in the Bollywood music industry.

“I can’t believe I’ve been tolerated by music lovers for 75 years!” she said last year in an interview with the Rediff news site.

Mangeshkar’s popularity has spread far beyond India. It was celebrated not only in neighboring Pakistan and Bangladesh, but also in some Western countries.

In 2001, she was awarded the “Bharat Ratna”, India’s highest civilian honour. The French government awarded him its highest civilian honour, “Officier de la Légion d’Honneur”, in 2007.

In December, Mangeshkar commemorated eight decades of his radio debut.

She wrote on Twitter in Hindi: “On December 16, 1941, I sang two songs for the first time in the studio for the radio after asking for my parents’ blessing. It’s been 80 years today. During these 80 years, I have received immense love and blessings from people. I believe that I will always continue to receive your love and blessings.

Mangeshkar never married. She is survived by four brothers and sisters, all accomplished singers and musicians.

Yet now the 28-year-old hit YouTube star, founder of the band Sidemen, is being touted as the bunny in the air.

An ITV viewer took to Twitter to write, “Love the masked singer so far. I think Robobunny is KSI.”

Another viewer from The Masked Singer added, “I guess Robobunny is KSI? #TheMaskedSinger.”

A Twitter user then continued: “I just watched the masked singer again, I’m torn on Robobunny, part of me thinks KSI but the last clue makes me think Sharron Davies is a swimmer but metal plates in hip.”

One of them then fumed: So the only other I’m sure of is the Robobunny. KSI. I will die on this hill.”

KSI, full name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji, has nearly 22 million subscribers on YouTube and is also enjoying success in the music industry.

He has an estimated net worth of around £16million.

In a recent interview, he claimed to own 10 properties in the UK worth around £10million.

Fans made their comments after Robobunny recently revealed, “At my last performance, the panel was deeply moved by my version of Shallow, but they still haven’t come up with a name that’s close.

“I love it. It is well known that rabbits come from large families. And this rabbit is no exception. You could definitely say that it was pappa rabbit who inspired my talent.

“And that’s the gospel truth. You want another truth? Sometimes people said, isn’t IT good. Confused? Awesome.”

Meanwhile, the celeb’s VT has revealed several clues surrounding their identities, from references to the Village People – after a police badge, Native American headdress and builder’s hat were seen – to mentions of home life. campaign and line dancing.

The show sees famous faces go head-to-head to put on a standout musical performance while their identities are kept secret under outrageous costumes.

WARREN WEST LIFE

Flying Without Wings singer Markus was the initial name as part of the character.

After the bunny performed a BTS track, one person exclaimed, “Well BTS and Westlife have a song called Dynamite so obviously it’s Mark #MaskedSingerUK”

And another said: ‘Doughnuts is 100% Michael Owen, and I think Robobunny is Mark from Westlife’

Meanwhile, Roman Kemp was asked if he was the Masked Singer’s poodle live last week.

The Capital radio presenter, 28, awkwardly dodged the claim – leaving his co-hosts Sian Welby and Sonny Jay very suspicious.

During a phone conversation, Eddie from Woking bluntly asked, “Roman, you’re not the poodle from The Masked Singer, are you?”

As Sian gasped, Roman deflected him entirely, asking, “Eddie, what’s your wake-up pun?”

Sian exclaimed, “Oh, he’s so secret!”
