Christina Perri, whose first album ‘Lovestrong’ is scheduled to hit the US stores in a couple of days, had always wanted to be a professional musician from the very beginning. Ina a recent interview with MTV News, the 24 year old singer said that she has been singing in front of people in churches, barbershop or any other place where she got the chance from as long as she can remember. She had always been keen to showcase her talent in front of audience, even if the listeners didn’t want to listen to her. Now, even after accomplishing her dream, Perri has no intentions of slowing down.
Even though her musical talents and vocal ability is there for everyone to see, she would have still found it hard to be able to share stage with British singer James Blunt, if it wasn’t for the immense success of her song ‘Jar of Hearts,’ which got her noticed very quickly on the big stage. She recalled that since her song got featured on ‘So You Think You Can Dance,’ her whole life changed completely for good. The former waitress was immediately invited by big record companies in New York City, where she signed up with Atlantic Records.

It seems that most of Lady Gaga’s inventions these days stir up controversy, even if she didn’t mean to do it. Her latest music video ‘Judas’ has a lot of biblical content, and there is every chance that religious enthusiasts may start debating the lyrics’ intended meaning in the near future, but the singer herself maintains that it is not an anti-religion video and she never meant to hurt religious groups.
Soon after its highly anticipated release, Gaga explained, “[Judas] is not meant to be an attack on religion. I respect and love everyone’s beliefs.” During the video’s promotion campaign, she tried to clarify on multiple occasions that her song is not an attack on any religion. Instead, she suggested that “it’s meant more to celebrate faith than it is to challenge it.”

My Chemical Romance has made an announcement stating that they are going to make a new rendition of their song ‘Sing’- the income generated from whom will be given to the earthquake relief charity fund being run by Red Cross in Japan. But they don’t wanna be alone in contributing all the charity action. Instead, they have asked their legion of fans called MCRmy to join them and contribute to this cause in any way they can.
The band has also asked their fans to upload their messages, video clips, images or anything else they can to lift the morale of the disaster-stricken Japanese nation. The submitted collection with the message #SINGItForJapan will then be used by the band on the video of the charity-oriented song that they plan to make.

1996, California—SuperXero was born. The name may be unfamiliar to you, but this was the name of a band that had ingeniously combined the sounds of rock and rap with brilliant results. It was this year when six friends formed the band: Rob Bourdon on drums, Brad Delson on the guitar, Mike Shinoda for vocals, Dave Farrell on the bass, Joe Hahn running the turntable and Mark Wakefield as the lead singer. The name SuperXero was soon changed to Xero due to low interest from its target audience. This poor level of enthusiasm from the potential fan base triggered the band’s lead singer to leave. It’s rare to hear music by the early iteration of the band, SuperXero on any local or Internet radio
station. Continue reading Before Success Knocked on the Door: Get to Know Linkin Park »
