Undiscovered Gem: Binky Espinal!!!! :D


                                                       Undiscovered Gem: Miss Bianca Espinal 

As the auditions are done and over with in Season 7 of The Voice, we have concluded the whole genepool of the singers that will be participating on the show this autumn. While there are a few hits that made it and a few MISSES that made a team. (Yes, there were such occurrences I'm not going to lie, and I'm not mentioning any names). However, there were genuinely a couple of artists that deserved to make a team. Perhaps the one that stood out the most was Miss Bianca Espinal of which her friends call her "Binky".

The moment she began to sing her rendition of Foolish Games for her Voice audition, we were ALL immediately cheering her on. Throughout her performance, we were captivated by her powerful voice and her emotional power. Her rendition was SOLID with the ease of her fierce belting prowess and an overall yearning emotion of which she expressed articulately. We definitely felt the desperation interwoven within her performance. Frankly, we are STILL shocked that NONE of the judges responded to that emotional cry.... Of course though, knowing that the coaches panel included two "NEW" judges that lack experience (Gwen and Pharrell) and the resident ****** Levine.... yeah, I'm not going to go into my opinions of that one because this article is about Bianca. Anyhow, we sincerely felt robbed that Bianca didn't make it ESPECIALLY when the coaches were talking about how she could have done better and all that. Honestly, this is an AUDITION. The artists are here to pick teams and have the COACHES REFINE and IMPROVE their voices. PLENTY of auditions in the past have gotten through while still rough around the edges, I don't see why Bianca received that complaint considering that we HONESTLY believe she sang very dang good!

Anyway, here is Bianca's audition of Foolish Games. She starts off with delicate melancholic notes and transcends into powerful belts full of hurt and longing, capturing the broken emotions of love riddled within the song.


We found some of Miss Binky's earlier videos. Here is one where she EFFORTLESSLY belts out a soulful rendition of Adele's famed Rolling In The Deep. And this was made THREE years ago. Just think how much her voice has matured and improved during that time! :D


                                                   Man, I WISH I could belt like that.... :)


Here is Miss Binky giving a fun-filled upbeat soulful performance in the Subway. And she gives such heart to her singing as well! :D You know, I am inspired by my friend Miss Binky not only by the fact that she possesses this AMAZING voice, but that she and all the other aspiring musicians who perform in the streets like heroes still have the strength to persevere and look for new opportunities. Seriously people, these artists DESERVE being recognized, not all of those incubated musicians raised on high paychecks who use YOUR money that you foolishly give to buy their albums to purchase a life of luxury, lamborghinis, and other frivolous superfluous items. Ugh... people just need to get out more. And that's why we're sitting here helping undiscovered talent like Miss Binky. Because they DESERVE it. :D

You should start by SUBSCRIBING to Miss Binky's Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/biancaespinal30/videos

You should also LIKE her Facebook Music Page: https://www.facebook.com/BabaMomoo?fref=tl_fr_box

You should also FOLLOW her on Twitter: https://twitter.com/EspinalBianca

AND TO THE VOICE: From the perspective of a fan and a friend, I think that a "wild-card" system would make the competition even more interesting. I mean, the Instant-Saves are a great idea, and I am THRILLED. But for things like the auditions, I think that you guys should implement something like "Golden Buzzers" or something like what America's Got Talent recently used. Just a suggestion. I know, that as a show you have airtime schedules and contracts to abide to. :D

The Jasmine of Jazz

                                                  Jasmine of Jazz: Jasmine Julia Goodwin

Season 9 of America's Got Talent is DEFINITELY the year sporting the most wondrous vocal talents the show has ever seen. Among the very best was Jasmine Julia Goodwin, who surprisingly pertained to jazz/blues music. With a pretty face, a large vocal range, and a masterful vocal control for her age, Jasmine Julia Goodwin was a force to be reckoned with and was quickly established as an early front-runner. Shockingly, Jasmine Julia Goodwin experienced an early exit in the competition after performing a (in my personal opinion) exquisitely delicate and elegant take on Goo Goo Dolls' Iris. In all honesty, I thought she did an exceptional job and did NOT deserve to go home. That's why, we're going to vouch for her to make the wild card position (if there is one hopefully).

Jasmine Julia is certainly a personal favorite of mine because she dedicates herself as a "jazz and blues" singer, two of my most favorite genres in "American" music. For a fifteen-year old talent, it's remarkable that she can even articulate the complexity of jazz and blues let alone shine so proficiently when singing of such. You see, Jasmine Julia is EXACTLY the kind of singers we need in our fast-falling music industry to hell. For some reason Jasmine Julia reminds me a little of Miss Ariana Grande, who is now a "pop" superstar, but has the chops to sing more... classical and beautiful types of music. Jasmine Julia and Miss Grande actually have some vocal similarities (especially in the upper notes, though Jasmine Julia seems to have more of a character in the upper register as opposed to wayward whistle tones that either hit or miss). All the young stars go for "pop" music, and it's quite rare to find an artist that deviates to more mature/resounding genres of music like Lorde or Ellie Goulding. Jasmine Julia's title as a jazz singer kind of reminds me of Soul Sister Jacquie Lee in her respective dedication to soul music. In my opinion, THESE are the rightful stars of tomorrow, NOT "Pornpop" extravaganza Cyrus the Whore or the assorted Riff Raff from downtown. (okay, maybe that was a little harsh). :)

Anyway, Jasmine Julia is indeed a vocal talent of our generation, and we WOULD love to see her get a second chance on America's Got Talent by singing for a wild card. Here are her performances on America's Got Talent:


Jasmine Julia auditioned with a stunning rich jazzy performance of Billy Joel's In a New York State of Mind that was absolutely sensational it left practically everyone breathless including me. The judges were SPOT ON with their praise, giving significant highlights to Jasmine Julia's ability of vocal control, jazzy tones, vocal riffs, and falsetto breaths. To say that she was a tremendous talent... I AGREE! :D 


Jasmine Julia next performed Nina Simone's classic Feeling Good for Judgment Week, giving the song her signature jazzy tone with a burst of youthfulness. She also demonstrated some killer falsetto notes here as her father accompanied her on the piano. 



For her first live show performance in Radio City Music Hall, Jasmine Julia gave a refreshing gorgeous rendition of Goo Goo Doll's Iris, which was extremely polished and graceful. Sporting a ravishing red dress, Jasmine Julia was definitely a vision for the eyes as she gave a diaphanous performance. I truly believe that the criticisms on her from the judges were unwarranted and that they mistakenly blamed her for trying to show a more delicate side to her voice. And thus, I would like to encourage EVERYONE to vouch for her to be a wild card this season. THANK YOU!!! :D

Unfortunately, as Jasmine Julia is a budding artist, she doesn't have an established Youtube Channel as of yet, and we'll update this article once she does. However, with the things she has, we'll work with it. :)

The Reincarnation of Vintage!!!

                                                            Vintage Queen: Emily West 

It's official. My newest hero on America's Got Talent Season 9 is indeed Vintage Queen Emily West. She absolutely represents EVERYTHING that is missing from the music industry today... and that is soul, heart, and class. Vintage Queen Emily West is a country singer, a remarkable one at that with a powerful resonating classic sound intermixed with a Lana Del Rey-esque smokey lower register and a signature Southern-style country sound. Vintage Queen Emily West is certainly one of the best lady country singers I've heard in a long time, since Miss Carrie Underwood, and I DO believe that Vintage Queen Emily West can mirror Miss Underwood's success with her recent resurfacing on America's Got Talent.

But what really stands out about Vintage Queen Emily West is the amount of EMOTION she puts into her singing. And that may have been the result of her tragic experience with being dropped from a record label. The feelings of regret, desperation, and discouragement from such a devastating blow may have given Vintage Queen Emily West the hurtful emotions to implement into her songs, which makes her singing all that much more heartrending, sincere, and grandeur. To see what we mean, check out this incredible take on Roy Orbison's classic You Got It. 


The amount of sincerity and passion is sewn into every word. I'm willing to personally say that it was flawless to the point that I actually preferred Vintage Queen Emily's version to the original. Starting off with Lana Del Rey-esque lower smokey vocals, Vintage Queen Emily transcends all her passion into the song, allowing us to feel the yearning desperation, soul, and heart she had induced from a probable combination of her personal connection to the lyrics and the make-it-or-break-it pressure of Judgment Week (previously coined Vegas Week).

From the first moment that Vintage Queen Emily walked onto the AGT stage, she immediately stood out for her preference of classic vintage styles. Her hairstyle is that reminiscent of the late Legendary Senora Marilyn Monroe, and her outfits were stunningly of class. We NEED more artists like Vintage Queen Emily because this junkyard termed music industry is littered with plastic mannequins, artificial 'pretty boys', gold teeth, bling chains, and other obscenities so to speak. Vintage Queen Emily is like a statuette of hope, that class and cordiality isn't completely dead in the music industry.

Here are her stunning performances on America's Got Talent:


                                    Vintage Queen Emily West sings Sea Of Love with all that vintage charm! :D

Vintage Queen Emily's audition was indeed classical with so much soul, heart, and passion heard. This already set her as an instant frontrunner (and in my opinion, the best singing on AGT).


For her quarterfinal performance, Vintage Queen Emily West delivered a soul-trending rendition of Sia's Chandelier and quite frankly outdone Sia herself. Vintage Queen Emily's emotion was unrivaled, and her classical sound absolutely shone at full bright power. She even had on a vivacious Marilyn-esque veiled-laced beaded gown and a caricature to take us back in time. Along with a string orchestra, it was a stupendous performance that cemented Vintage Queen Emily's status as a blossoming star shown when she EASILY breezed to the semifinals ahead of all her competition that night.

Vintage Queen Emily is currently at the semifinals at the time of this article. In terms of star potential alone, I'd put my votes on Vintage Queen Emily. So keep an eye out on her and remember to vote! :)

Vintage Queen Emily actually had an experience working with Capitol Records at one point of her career. For a budding career, she did pretty well, landing a few singles on the Billboards and getting the opportunity to duet with Keith Urban. Vintage Queen Emily has three albums, which you will find at her itunes page I provided here:

Itunes Link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/emily-west/id268716741

Her biggest successes so far are Rock In Your Shoes, I Hate You, I Love You Again, and Blue Skies with Mister Keith Urban. Here they are! :)


Here is the music video for Vintage Queen Emily's Rock In Your Shoes which peaked at an impressive no. 39 on the Billboards. Here, her country sound really kicks in. :)


Vintage Queen Emily's I Hate You, I Love You Again is one of her best songs, showing off her rich warm falsetto range in a tranquil background sound. It actually sold pretty well, having her full EP album peak at position 41 at the Billboards.


Perhaps her most well known original songs to date, Vintage Queen Emily's Blue Sky is a very emotional song showing off her powerful emotional voice. In addition, Mister Keith Urban accompanies her in the chorus. :)


Support Vintage Queen Emily! I have a feeling that she will finally be the country star that she DESERVES to be. :)

Favorite Voice Coachie:

   
                                Favorite Voice Coachie: Usher Raymond. (Now THAT'S hot! :D) 

Okay okay... I'll admit. When I first found out that Mr. Raymond was replacing Mr. Lo Green as a judge on Season 4, I was kinda mad. I didn't know much about Mr. Usher Raymond at the time, only that he had a major part in launching Justine Boobieb's wretched plague-infested "music" career that is now (as I am proud to say) on a downward spiral of collapse with Boobieb's recent plunge into delinquency. Mr. Raymond returned as a coach in Season 6 of the Voice. To be honest, after spending two seasons with Mr. Raymond, I can say that I've grown to like him.

Music: Mr. Raymond's music can be somewhat similar to that idiot Levine's music as both of them have higher voices suited to R&B (which Mr. Raymond OBVIOUSLY beats Levine flat on that genre). However, Mr. Raymond exceeds Levine in the musical department because his material borders the "soul" genre of music intermixing with pop/R&B. So to say that Mr. Raymond is more tied with his culture is a fair statement, that and his material isn't as sexually promiscuous as that disgusting pervert Levine. To be honest, Mr. Raymond's music is okay. I'm not really a fan of his songs, but I do like his Without You song. Mr. Raymond's voice is BETTER than Levine's snot-ass nasal voice because Mr. Raymond has a slightly larger vocal range, a distinct warm sexual tone that captivates on his seductiveness, has better lower notes, is better at singing EMOTIONALLY, and has superb breathing techniques to dance and sing at the same time while Levine fails at all that. Mr. Raymond also doesn't have to rely on 4 ass sidekicks to assist him like Levine has to, so that's another plus.

Dance: In addition to his singing ability, Mr. Raymond also doubles up by the fact that he can actually dance and not strip (like Levine Adam). If you went to the strip club, you'd be more likely to see Levine on stage anytime before Mr. Raymond. (Maybe that's where Levine had his first penniless gigs... lol) To say that Mr. Raymond is infinitely more talented than Levine would be an understatement. Mr. Raymond's ability to sing and dance is on par with Michael Jackson's legendary skills. Mr. Raymond is the best male singer&dancer combo talent of this era accomplished by his sex appeal, his swift feet, and his slick Michael-Jackson-esque movements.

Appearance: Mr. Raymond may be one of the sexiest African-American males available in the entertainment industry this day and age. When you compare him and resident eunuch Levine, it's obvious that Mr. Raymond is at least three times as manly as that dukesgernaut. (Your leg up is a manly action Mr. Raymond) As dance is such a huge part of Mr. Raymond's skillset, it would obviously make sense that Mr. Raymond has an extremely agile and fit body. Mr. Raymond is slim, but he definitely has muscle. In fact, his body is almost all muscle with noticeable pecks and six-packs. All Levine has to work with is fat, flab, and a belly. :)


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       That's Sad Levine... Sad...                              That's what I'm talking about Mr. Usher Raymond!!!

As you can clearly see, the difference is obvious. I don't understand what the fucking hell People's Magazine was drugged up on to EVER consider ugly-ass shitstick Levine as a candidate for their annual "Sexiest Man Alive" poll much less the eventual victor. People's Magazine should be ashamed of even calling themselves a credible magazine after that horrendous decision to give Levine that title, when a sexier man can be found sitting 2 FUCKING CHAIRS AWAY FROM HIM!!! Also, as you can see by the picture, Levine sort of has womanish hips, which makes sense considering that he has a transvestite-voice. It's DISGUSTING. Also, I noted that Mr. Raymond acquired some tattoos too. However, being that Mr. Raymond's skin is at a natural darker tone, his tattoos don't overtake his appearance that much. On the opposite end, look at Levine. His skin tone and his tattoos contrast each other, making his dirty tattoos stand out like inky inscriptions all over his skin. Levine's tattooed ass is thoroughly disgusting. 

Coaching: Okay, since the main point of this article is to stress why I think Mr. Raymond is the best coach on The Voice, I'll get to it. You can find more of what I hate about Levine on my The Krackhead Club blog. What I loved about Mr. Raymond was that I could actually FEEL he was sincere and that he actually cared about the artists on his team. Mr. Raymond also finds creative ways to engage them during practice by making them do exercise and what not. Mr. Raymond is also humble and honest. (I mean seriously, since when was he bragging about how "sexy" he was and hogging the stupid camera like that eunuch Levine?) Mr. Raymond is also very sweet to the contestants, and I know he cares very much about the people he mentors. Simply because Mr. Raymond is a disciplinarian and doesn't sugarcoat everything like the rest of them, I KNOW he is being sincere and helpful. While Levine and the other coaches may sugarcoat a performance, Mr. Raymond is usually the one giving advice on improvement and telling the artist that the reality is HARD WORK. When it comes to the performances that he doesn't like, Mr. Raymond makes it clear that he is indifferent and may actually offer honest advice on improvement. On the other hand, for exceptional performances, Mr. Raymond makes it clear by giving whole-hearted standing ovations and praise. Mr. Raymond is also rarely annoying unlike stupid dumbass Levine (who tries to feign intelligence by using half-ass vocabulary words that he doesn't fully understand), and he has shown that he cares about his artists as he keeps in contact with them and even helps promote them like he did with Mr. Josh Kaufman. That being said, I really dislike Mr. Raymond using the whole "I discovered Justine Boobieb" card to lure in artists. Not only do I wish he wouldn't remind me that he was responsible for the debut of one of the worst tragedies in music, but Mr. Raymond doesn't even have to kiss Boobieb's ass to be appealing. With all the qualities I listed, Mr. Raymond can easily make himself so attractive already. Throwing in the Boobieb card only taints the purity and sincerity of Mr. Raymond and also makes the hook about Boobieb, which I absolutely despise. Other than that though, Mr. Raymond is without a doubt the best coach the Voice has so far. :D

Modern Genius: Royals/Pure Heroine


                                                    Royals: By Lorde 


                                        
2013 was a huge year for one of the most talented young stars to break out from New Zealand. Her name is Lorde, and her masterpiece Royals was a global phenomenon that catapulted her all the way to the top of the music pyramid. Royals is truly an elite song destined for eternal fame, but before we talk about that, let's discuss a little bit about its singer and creator: the seventeen year old Lorde.

Lorde: Lorde is the stage name of Ella Yelich-o'connor who adopted said stage name having a fascination of royalty and hierarchical systems. First off, Lorde represents everything that is missing from today's shitty music as well as today's scumbag young generation. I want to make it clear that Lorde is an individual with a nonchalant attitude. Lorde has her own character and image that she believes suits her well and at the same she don't give no shit about what others say about it. Ignorant people (dumbasses to be exact) have made many wild poorly-calculated accusations against Lorde including: drugs, her age, her disabilities and other bullshit like that. Yeah Lorde acts weird and oddly, but that's who she is and who the hell she wants to be. None of you untalented mother-fucking shitsticks should give a fuck about the way she lives her life. I agree that Lorde acts bizarrely but I respect that and in fact encourages her to keep being herself. The character she plays and dresses is art. It's a part of her appeal in fact, and she knows it. That's why she doesn't give a fuck to her haters. Bottom line is, no matter how dubious she acts, she's not hurting anyone and isn't lewd to play up the sexuality like all the rest of the cow shit in the music industry (Cyrus the Whore, Levine Adam... ahem...) Besides her physical appearance and actions,  I believe that Lorde is extremely intelligent. A lot of her songs deviate from the grilled-out tired-ass theme of love and sexual lewdness. The lyrics she writes revolve around the more important things in life (most of the time being the detrimental effects of fame, money, and the "lux" life, most evident in Royals, Tennis Court and 400 Lux) And to write such complex melodic lyrics at her tender age, Lorde is definitely at a league of her own when it comes to the delinquent population these days. She is definitely mature enough to realize that there are many hideous disparities in modern life with her dissatisfaction of modern society evident in her songs: Team, BuzzCut Season, White Teeth Teens, and Alone In This World. Lorde also emphasizes uniqueness and inspiration with empowering songs like Glory and Gore. Lorde's material is artistic, dark, unique, meaningful, honest, haunting, and condemning of modern pop music, which ABSOLUTELY DESERVES to be condemned for spawning all the wrong messages to corrupt an emerging generation. Lorde is a glimmer of hope that can save us from the spiraling vortex of musical abomination. On that note, I also hear that Miss Lorde is apparently very vocal about politics. With a mind like that, who wouldn't?

Royals: Royals hands-down is my favorite song of this era and one of my favorite songs of all time. It is ridiculously catchy, memorable, simplistic, meaningful, deep, intellectual, powerful and most of all... simple. Royals is nothing short of everything, I consider it a work of genius. And to think that Lorde wrote the lyrics in half an hour? THAT'S PURE GENIUS I tell you. There's a reason why Royals won so many awards including Lorde's youngest Grammy Award in history. Royals is so simple. All you need is your hands to snap and clap in rhythm and a voice. That's it! :) It's lyrics are very deep however. And to know that so many idiot delinquents these days have no clue what the hell Royals is even about, well that doesn't really surprise me considering that most of them were drugged up and brainwashed on riff-raff, sex-tunes, and twerk-fests.   Basically, Royals starts off by emphasizing Lorde's humble background with the "I've never seen a diamond in the flesh, I'm not proud of my address...no postcode envy" lines. Her "Every Songs like Gold Teeth, Grey Goose" and "Everybody's like Crystal, Maybach, Diamonds on Your Timepiece, Jet Planes, Islands, Tigers on a Gold Leash" lines emphasize how every person and pop music nowadays is in to promoting a superfluous corrupted luxurious style that ensures the spirit of greed and lust. This love for this luxurious lifestyle is emphasized as an unhealthy "affair" as in the line: "We aren't caught in your love affair". The main message of the song cannot be more clear in the phrase: "That Kind Of Lux Just Ain't For Us". Even the dumbest of the dumbshits can understand what the fuck that means. And to all the dipshits complaining how the song is "pretentious, preachy and pompous", may I kindly remind the breed of commonfolk that she emphasizes a FANTASY? F.A.N.T.A.S.Y. Her "Royal Life" is just a fantasy. It's even emphasized in the damn chorus: "AND WE'LL NEVER BE ROYALS! IT DON'T RUN IN OUR BLOOD! LET ME BE YOUR RULER! YOU CAN CALL ME QUEEN BEE! AND BABY I'LL RULE! LET ME LIVE THAT FANTASY!!!" Lorde is just singing about her DREAM. That's all. What is there not to understand? This generation is as dumb as a sack of horse shit.

Guns WITH Roses?

                                 
                                       Guns WITH Roses: Miss Kaleigh Glanton 

Miss Glanton was an indie-folk singer on Season 6 of the Voice. While there were many standouts in said season, Miss Glanton stood out for her unique folk/country sound. Miss Glanton operated with a very distinct country-cowgirl sound, with a gritty texture, a bit of a yodel, a ring of jazz, and a bluegrass feel. Miss Glanton also had a versatile voice where she used to the full extent by offering riffs and gaps in her falsetto range, (what Mr. Shelton referred to as the "tiny spots she goes that nobody else thinks of"). Miss Glanton should be commended for her unique interpretation of her songs. (Which, she sung a lot of classics too). In fact, her beautiful interpretations were so good that she was considered as an early front-runner. It should also be interesting to note that Miss Glanton was one of the few in the season who constantly demonstrated and shined with her upper register, the others being Fireball Christina Grimmie, Country Soprano Audra Mclaughlin, and Queen Sam Behymer to come extent. Miss Glanton's time was brief, but she was good enough to make it all the way to the knockouts where she held her own against a male powerhouse named Ryan Whyte Maloney (who had a rocker kind of voice). There's no shame for Miss Glanton to lose against Mr. Maloney considering that he did have one of the most powerful voices of the season within a powerhouse beast of a song like Easy. 

Here is Miss Glanton's interpretation of the classic: Have You Ever Seen This Rain? 



Her gritty, jazzy, "yodelly" voice absolutely shines in this song as she adds a little extra with her falsetto notes.


Miss Glanton performed Michael Buble's Everything for her battle round performance with fellow jazz singer Mr. Noah Lis. The video we provided is her SOLO version of the song. Her actual battle with Mr. Noah was actually pretty cute with good harmonies, good connection, and a mixture of smooth jazzy vocals topped off with a bit of chemistry. It's definitely worth a watch, but it's not on Youtube.


Miss Glanton next decided to tackle Rascal Flatt's Easy for her knockout round (which is FAR from easy to sing). She was paired up with Mister Ryan Whyte Maloney who had a much more suitable and powerful voice tailored to a rock/country song like Easy. You know, given from her past performances at the time, I really wasn't sure that Miss Glanton's voice was strong enough to handle a power-packed song like Easy. But, Miss Glanton wanted to challenge herself, so I strongly commend her for being brave enough to sing the song. Surprisingly, when the knockout round came, Miss Glanton actually held her own very well against Mister Ryan. And honestly, even though Mr. Maloney was a bit more controlled and comfortable with the song, I felt Miss Glanton had more of an edge considering that she had to work so much harder to hold up against Mr. Maloney's power being that she was a female singer. Miss Glanton was also noted by one of the coaches to have made "massive improvements". In the end, Mr. Shelton chose Mr. Maloney over Miss Glanton and it was sad to say farewell to her on the show. However, being that she is on the WowWielist, y'all should know that we're still with her to this very day.

Look: Okay, I know this is a music blog, but I'm not just restricted to commenting on her voice! I have to say, Miss Glanton is more than just a pretty face. Like I mentioned with the title, Miss Glanton is definitely a rose with "Guns". In her pre-audition bit, Miss Glanton made notice that she worked out a lot, having arm muscles capable of "beating Mr. Usher Raymond at arm wrestling" according to Miss Glanton herself. And she sure looks fit enough to do so! Maybe that's why she was so fearless in tackling a hard-on song like Easy. You know, for some reason, whenever I see Miss Glanton, I see a resemblance in her with the beautiful Hong Kong TVB actress Natalie Tong. Here, I'll let you compare:


                                                     A Rose With Guns!!!! :)

Left: Natalie Tong                                                                                      Right: Kaleigh Glanton





































I think Lady Tong and Miss Glanton look a lot alike don't you? Or maybe it's just me! :D

Tiny Angels On Earth : REVELATION IS GRACE ANN GREGORIO!!!

                               
                                         Tiny Angels On Earth: Grace Ann Gregorio 

In Season 9 of America's Got Talent, the stage was graced by a miniature songbird with a magnificent angelic operatic voice. Appropriately, she is named Grace and has already shown that she is an established soprano at a very young age. Angel Grace is coming to resemble Season 9's version of Fairy Jackie Evancho, who we should all know became the youngest artist IN HISTORY to go platinum (Her O' Holy Night album) with a bonafide superstar musical career following her unbelievable performances on America's Got Talent that officially raised the show's popularity to new heights. Seeing that Fairy Jackie was ten at the time of her national debut, Angel Grace, who is eleven could have the potential to mirror the effect Fairy Jackie had with the national audience.

                 
                 Angel Grace's FULL version of her America's Talent audition song: Think Of Me



                                           A snippet of Angel Grace performing at the auditions.

You know, AGT is so dumb to montage someone as talented as Angel Grace, knowing that in history their peak popularity was largely due to the appearance of Fairy Jackie. Angel Grace is of similar talent, holding a very pure operatic voice and sounding like a meadowlark. As of right now, Angel Grace's operatic voice is subtle and tranquil. While her belts are amazingly beautiful, they are also very middling in power. In comparison with Fairy Jackie when she first performed on AGT, Angel Grace at the moment, is subordinate in control, projection, and expression. However, as she is now in the competition, the show will find vocal teachers that will help Angel Grace blossom. (As if she hadn't already). Her cover of Think Of Me was stunning and resounding. She shows remarkable range as she is able to navigate her voice over bridges of different notes while demonstrating a serene tonal quality throughout as well. Angel Grace also presents herself very well, being at ease on stage wearing a pretty flowered skirt and giving an adorable curtsy to show grace and etiquette. With all of these things considered, I truly believe that Angel Grace has the potential to win the entire competition and land a recording contract.


                                                 Angel Grace sings Oh Mio Babbino Caro 

                Watch Angel Grace as she soars to new heights with this Italian Operatic classic!

                               Angel Grace's Cover of Summertime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     Angel Grace can even fuse opera with jazz! JAZZ! This is so amazing! I bet Ella Fitzgerald would be proud! :D


                      Angel Grace STUNS with Someone Like You by Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Angel Grace is 10 in this video! TEN! And she's singing a monstrous broadway song like this! Angel Grace apparently possesses an incredible operatic voice AS WELL AS a Broadway theatrical voice AND a regular singing voice! She could very well grow up to be Susan Boyle mixed with Maria Callas. I mean, this is beyond amazing. I hear parts in this video where she sounds like Ariana Grande, I hear parts here where she sounds like Jodi Benson (Voice acted Ariel in Disney's Little Mermaid), I hear parts here where she sounded like a mini-Susan Boyle, Megan Hilty, and Vanessa Williams. Why the heck has it taken this long for people to discover her? She's a prodigy! A DIAMOND! She NEEDS MORE VIEWS AND SUBSCRIBERS! And why hasn't she been contacted by Disney? She is the perfect singer for Disney's Little Sing-Showtunes! She would blaze Disney! And at the same time, Angel Grace can make classical albums and be a Broadway Star! :D


                Speaking of Broadway, here's Angel Grace channeling Susan Boyle and Les Miserables

I have seriously NEVER been this excited about any other singer ever. Angel Grace is a revelation! She is more than a discovery. SHE IS A TREASURE! I predict that she is going to be a Platinum-charting artist in the next few years if not sooner (as we all saw with Fairy Jackie!). Please! PLEASE SUPPORT HER!!!

Hey Soul Sister Jacquie!


                                                          Soul Sister: Jacquie Lee 

Season 5 of the Voice may have ended with Reggae Mistress Tessanne Chin taking home the gold cup, but one of the biggest things to rock the stage came out from the body of a cute, beautiful girl with a voice ensuing decades. At the fresh age of 16, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee embodied a rich, powerful, and soulful voice WAY beyond her years. By the time she sailed through the competition all the way to the finals, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee had the vocal impression of performing for years, and everyone seemed to forget that she was still sixteen. She was so good, that she managed to finish at runner-up position, behind Reggae Mistress Tessanne Chin who was her own force to be reckoned with. That being said, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee was my favorite contestant of the season right from the start, and her already vibrant soulful voice is gonna grow exponentially as she ages. Soul Sister Jacquie Lee is DEFINITELY going to go far. With wretch-ass butt-ugly Pop-Sickles like Justine Boobieb and Cyrus the Whore representing the worst plight and downfall the modern music industry has seen in years, we can at least remain optimistic that good kids like Soul Sister Jacquie Lee can wrestle back some sanity into the fast-plundering abomination that is our record industry.


Vocal Ability and Image: Soul Sister Jacquie Lee possesses a blessed voice with a lot of soul and a lot of power. You can feel her lyrics; her emotions roar out through the lyrics effortlessly as she unleashes her trademark belts. Soul Sister Jacquie Lee can also pull off smokey-tones within her voice and smooth jazzy runs. Also, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee displays an ability to phonate angelic falsetto tones, seen notably in "I Put A Spell On You", "Stompa", and her "Who's Lovin' You" performances. You would think that she compromises graceful falsetto notes for her powerful belts, but no, the falsetto notes are just as bright and sweet! :) Soul Sister Jacquie Lee definitely hits home and displays her passion and power when she pulls off her rocker/soulful belts exhibited with clarity, dignity, toil, and a rich soulful texture. To be honest, when she belts, she actually resembles Miss Christina Aguilera. Though her control can use a little tweaking with time, that is perfectly fine, as you don't see mother-fuckers complaining about Justine Boobieb when he makes mistakes... Anyway, what Soul Sister Jacquie Lee does is NOT a "screamfest". Something as ludicrous as that can only be spoken by complete sub-human parasites that are of no benefit, interest, or respect to anyone with half a heart and a brain. For some stupid reason, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee has received a lot of uncalled negativity towards her singing style. It's apparently so bad that she has "learned not to look at the comments on the Internet regarding her". So you know what, I'm going to take a stand for her. If any of you rotten-maggot-infested dumbass bitches twerking on a rusted pole wants to say anything hurtful against Soul Sister Jacquie Lee, I DARE you to say it to me so that I can eat you up and shit you out. Bullying is NOT acceptable under ANY circumstances, ESPECIALLY when it is directed against a HEROINE like Soul Sister Jacquie Lee, who tries her best at every instances and gives it her all with smiles and a healthy positive attitude.

Aside from her remarkable voice, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee is also a very charming young lady who sort of resembles Gomez Selena without all the clowning-makeup. Really, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee looks AND sings like an angel. With big brown eyes, a stunning smile, natural bouncy hair, and a timeless maturing voice, Soul Sister Jacquie reminds everyone why she IS the TOTAL PACKAGE.


Soul Sister Jacquie Lee's debut audition with the late Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black" remains to be one of her most well-received performances thus far. With the dislike bar numbering at less than 3% as opposed to her later performances seeing a sharp increases, it can easily be correlated that people began to turn away as she came into her own with her belting prowess. In her first performance, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee pulled off a solid rendition, showing her already well-developed soulful tone at its greenest stage. Nevertheless, she picked a match-made-in-heaven with Miss Aguilera, who would later help her voice soar to new heights.


Soul Sister Jacquie Lee's following performance of "House of the Rising Sun" was even better and even better received than her audition. This is in fact my favorite performance of hers. Strangely, she DID exhibit her trademark belts and falsetto notes this early in the game and yet the dislikes still remained at two-digits. I wonder when exactly did the people started hating on her.


Soul Sister Jacquie Lee's following Knockout battle with Mister Anthony Paul was STILL one of her best received performances. In this, she revealed that she had an affinity for Adele, and thus thought that the song "Stompa" had some elements in which Soul Sister Jacquie Lee could "Adelize". Knowing that, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee managed to make a very fun pop-rendition of the song, which shows her ability to sing in pop music. Also, this performance is noted for Soul Sister Jacquie's Lee's amazing falsetto note, which up until that point, no one figured that she could do. Next to Miss Cathia's Season 4 Whistle note in her rendition of "Mr. Know It All", Soul Sister Jacquie Lee's falsetto note was right up there with hers. (though not as high tonally).


Soul Sister Jacquie Lee's mesmerizing performance of "I put a spell on you" was her moment of the season. Next to her "House of the Rising Sun" rendition, this was my second favorite performance of hers. She showed range, power, soul, and fire. She lit up the place and blazed through the song, dishing in some serious soulful heat all ending with a tremendous burst of power. It was JAW-DROPPING. Unfortunately, by now, as we refer to her dislike bar, it is at this point that we see the initial signs of people turning against her for absolutely no fucking reason.


Soul Sister Jacquie Lee next captured her audience with a dark and broody performance of "Love Is Blindness". I think this performance showed off her mature soulful voice more than the others because it was gloomy and desolate. The song itself is an isolated song, cold on the lyrics with a dreary feel. Soul Sister Jacquie Lee simply delivered the performance. My third favorite performance from her.


Soul Sister Jacquie Lee next channeled Motown soul with a rendition of Jackson 5's "Who's Lovin' You". Her belts were very much present in this rendition (perhaps more so than the others) as was her falsetto notes. It was an amazing catchy performance nevertheless, I did not understand all the dislikes at all.


For the first part of her two-song night performance, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee took on Grit-Sis Janis Joplin's Cry Baby. While this IS arguably one of her best performances in regards to the pitch and display of her belting range, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee lacked Grit-Sis Janis Joplin's signature raspy growl and smoky howl that made the original version so intensely emotional and deep. Simply put, Grit-Sis Janis Joplin may own her song, but Soul Sister Jacquie Lee thoroughly deserves to be commended on holding her own and giving her own interpretation to this classic piece. For the second performance, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee took on her coach's "The Voice Within". Needless to say, it wasn't her very best, but it was still a very good performance. Soul Sister Jacquie Lee showed desperation and empowerment. She performed emotionally and she made the lyrics mean something to us. So all I have to say is great job! :)


Soul Sister Jacquie Lee's take on Zedd's "Clarity" is easily one of her most disliked performances on the show. And frankly, I don't understand why the hell it was that disliked. Now, I'm going to be honest, the singer Foxes really owns this song, and she still sings it the best. But still, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee held her own in the performance by emphasizing a more subtle, delicate, and vulnerable side to her voice as opposed to her usual belting prowess. The song is about hurt, and Soul Sister Jacquie Lee put on a wistful performance too. What did she get in return? Useless comments calling her performance weak, unstable, terrible, un-rehearsed, unprepared, flat, and worst song choice disappointment?! Are you fucking kidding me? Yeah she was a little bit nervous because she's not used to singing this type of song, and maybe it wasn't the "ideal" song choice, but hell knows she doesn't deserve all this bullshit hate. All of you suckeroonies would be nervous too if you were tackling that on live television. GET BENT HATERS!


For her semifinal performance, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee took a more dynamic approach to tears-n'-tissue classic "Angel", which FINALLY landed her a spot at no. 9 among the Top 10 Itunes charts. Honestly, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee deserved way more performances to land in the Top 10 slots, I cannot believe that it took THIS long for America to pull their heads out of their asses. Besides giving an inspiring optimistic performance, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee also looked better than she ever did (and she usually looks stunning), with a creative hairstyle, shiny eyes, an angelic white gown, and a luminescent glow, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee couldn't have looked more precious.


For her final performance, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee challenged a huge stone by covering Jennifer Holliday's Broadway-blast Tony-Award-Winning hit song "And I am telling you I'm not going". This is a LEGENDARY beast of a song wrestled only by the likes of Jennifer Holliday, Jennifer Hudson, and Jessica Sanchez. And we can now add Soul Sister Jacquie Lee to the list because damn right she owned that song and she owned it with soul, yearn, and passion. It was real... it was a REAL performance. Forget about all the comparisons, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee shined with her own singing style and her own voice. She cranked the dynamism of the song to max and she rocked it! Even though she didn't win, Soul Sister Jacquie Lee left with a huge bang with a big enough effect to land her a record deal with Lyon Cohen's 300 Entertainment in partnership with Atlantic Records. And damn right she EARNED it! SLAY THEM SOUL SISTER JACQUIE LEE! WOOHOO!

Soul Sister Jacquie Lee released her first single named: "The Broken Ones". Here's the song! Enjoy! :)


Soul Sister Jacquie Lee pours her heart and soul into a sentimental song. Please share the video with your friends.

A New Diamond! Not Neil Diamond!


                                                  Newly-Discovered Diamond: Miss Jamie Jooste

Fresh out from London, UK (also known as the place where Cinematic producers actually HAVE talent and artistry) surfaces a newly-discovered diamond in the rough. Her name is Miss Jamie Jooste and she has all the right tools she needs to climb up the music industry. As of right now, Miss Jooste is busy launching her debut work and it is to my pristine honor to give her a step up!



In addition to her voice, Miss Jamie Jooste has the looks of a female pop star especially with her red curly hair which gives her a funky bubbly look of a rock star. However, she can also turn up a more lady-like charm when she straightens her hair and dons on her makeup. Miss Jooste seems to have an affinity to bright cherry-red gloss lipstick, which puts more of the glamour on her! :)


Miss Jooste already had the pleasure of working with SpectraSoul where she provided her vocals for their Play The Fool song. Right there and then it was obvious that Miss Jooste had a smooth quality to her voice expressed in light tones and a hint of melisma. I would say that Miss Jooste's voice would work well singing R&B/Soul/Pop tunes. Her upper register is airy and effortless, which proves that she does have a well established higher register while her lower register is solid and silky at that.

It seems that Miss Jooste is in the midst of her music video for her debut single "False Alarm" as part of her debut EP album: 'The Man Is Always Right'. The rhythm of the song kind of reminds me of Lorde's "Team", but Miss Jooste definitely sounds distinctly different. The song has a very catchy beat to it, and Miss Jooste starts off strong with solid vocals demonstrating the strength of her lower register. Her head voice is also quite full, allowing her to perform refreshing falsetto notes most notably in the phrase "save me". Her head voice is also very bright especially with the word "shining", where she hits a F5 note. In this song, her lower register is alluring with a distinct Latin-tint to it. To be honest, there were some parts of the video where I could see Miss Jooste sounding a lot like Miss Beyonce' or the Latin Queen Jennifer Lopez. Yep, Miss Jooste definitely has that star potential to make it big in pop or R&B genres. I should also mention that this song is most likely an original composition by Miss Jooste. If so, she definitely proves her songwriting skills of being able to write such a song with a hook.

The world is tired of spoiled phony-pop clowns like Selena G., Justine Boobieb, and Cyrus the Whore. There are plenty of people out there who have more talent and are far more deserving of the spotlight. When you submit yourself as a fan to Miss Jooste, know that you are making a good contribution to the meaning of music.
