It took her about 5 years, 3 producers and her own money to finally get it together. Here’s her song ‘Samantha’ from the upcoming album as she performed on the BBC TV show Friday Night With Jonathan Ross last week.

Cuban Artists Are Coming Back to the US

I wasn’t really aware of this but for the past 6 years, Cuban Musicians weren’t allowed to perform here in the US.  This seems to stem from our great President Barack Obama looking for a “new day” with relations with Cuba.  So far Omar Portuondo, Pablo Milanes and Zenaida Romeu have scheduled dates throughout the US.  Got to love Obama!!

Here’s some creativity that you don’t see very often.  JetBlue Airways will be staging some concerts at none other than Terminal 5 at JFK International Airport.  Nuts huh.  They’re calling it ‘Live from T5’ and they already have 12 dates scheduled with five bands in July.  Then in August they will be showing two contest winners each week hosted by OurStage.com.  You can go here to enter the contest if you got a band.

9 Year Old Playing Ozzy?

OK I got a little semi-mental on this and I had to share it with you. I don’t watch The Ellen Degeneres Show but I saw this story on little 9 year old Yuto Miyazawa who played Ozzy’s Crazy Train on guitar and sang, even though he doesn’t speak English!  AND not to ruin it but Ozzy actually came out after the performance and the kid was beside himself.  Check it!!
