From Sparks to Claud

Also this week:

Lina Lecaro wrote about the Sun Rose venue in print. Director of Talent Sharyn Goldyn said that, “T-Pain, who released his ‘Covers’ album last March, did a three-night residency at The Sun Rose that sold out in seconds. These were the only shows in the country he hosted, trading in his infamous auto tune and rapping for an evening of cover songs highlighting his unexpected, stunning vocal range that crowned him the first winner of The Masked Singer. Nicole Scherzinger, a judge on the show and former Pussycat Doll, showed another side of her vocal talent at The Sun Rose with three nights of Jazz and Broadway standards accompanied by a 10-piece band.”

In “Not Another DJ,” DJ Minx said, “You need to have an open mind when listening to and looking for music, but there are so many different genres out here. It takes double the amount of time for me to find the kind of music that I love, but I’m discovering a lot of new grooves along the way.”
