Eric Clapton × Pedrito Martinez – My Father’s Eyes

Today sees widely respected Latin percussionist Pedrito Martinez release a reimagined duet version of Eric Clapton’s My Father’s Eyes” – featuring a collaborative performance with the guitar legend himself. Having the opportunity to work closely with Eric Clapton is the fulfillment of a longtime dream for Pedrito that had its roots at New York City’s Guantanamera restaurant, where Pedrito’s group got started, and where Eric was a frequent guest.

Inspired by getting to know one another, Pedrito had the idea in early 2019 to put together a re-imagined version of Clapton’s deeply personal song “My Father’s Eyes” and send it to the three-time inducted Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member for his thoughts. . Upon receiving the initial recording, Eric Clapton invited the innovative Cuban percussionist to London last year to work together , where he added his own vocals and guitar to My Father’s Eyes and additional guitar contributions to two more tracks that will also be included in Pedrito’s upcoming album, Acertijos, expected to be released in early 2021.

“Pedrito is a genius…working with him has been a revelation to me.” – Wynton Marsalis

“…dizzying rhythmic webs, songs within songs, and the thrill of real Cuban rumba transformed into something as hip and irresistible as great pop.” – Larry Blumenfeld, Wall Street Journal

TOBi x Juls – Black Joy is Resistance

Brampton’s own, TOBi signs with Same Plate Entertainment/RCA Records along with releasing a new single, “Dollas and Cents.” The groovy and soulful bop sonically highlights Black joy as a form of resistance. Produced by the UKs Afrobeat go-to, Juls, the pair showcase their diverse diasporic lineage and the magic created when working together.

Juls is one of my favorite producers right now. We linked up at the end of last year and the chemistry was instant! This song is really bridging that diaspora connection, Nigeria to Ghana to UK to Canada. It’s a beautiful thing to tap into our African roots musically,” says TOBi

In April 2020, TOBi released STILL + a deluxe version of his debut album which explored themes of vulnerability, post traumatic growth, self-reflection and masculinity of his time immigrating from Nigeria to Canada. STILL + added two new singles: “Holiday” produced by !llmind as well as “Paid,” followed by the City Blues Remix featuring The Game; “180 Remix” featuring Kemba and the “24” remix featuring all Torontonians SHAD, Haviah Mighty, Jazz Cartier and Ejji Smith. The project has a combined total of 17M streams across all streaming platforms. In January 2020, Complex Magazine voted TOBi as a top artist to watch.

We cannot be more pleased with how TOBi has developed as an artist and are incredibly supportive of his endeavors, says Jonathan Master, SVP, RCA Records /President, Same Plate Entertainment.  Over the past year it has become obvious that his music and brand have an international reach and we are excited about partnering with RCA to actualize the global vision.” 

2019 would prove to be an impactful year for the 26 year old Nigerian-Canadian, having his single “City Blues,” premiering with Zane Lowe and Paper Magazine; performing to a sold out crowd in his hometown of Toronto, being featured on The Game’s Born 2 Rap album in “Carmen Electra,” Party Pupils “One Two Things” and Big Gigantic’s “Supergiant.” He continued the momentum performing an original song, “Beige” on the international COLORS platform, having his single, “Ride” featured in the 2019 season of HBO’s Ballers as well as teaming up with Soulection’s Sango in bouncy single, “Faces.” Celebrities like Keri Hilson, Tiffany Haddish, Jamie Foxx and everyone’s favorite Uncle Snoop called TOBi the voice of the culture and of the youth.

Naomi Judd × Looped × NAMI

Naomi Judd partners with Looped for one-on-one meet & greet event to benefit National Alliance on Mental Illness

Country music icon, Naomi Judd, has partnered with Looped, a new platform that enables fans to video chat live with their favorite celebrities, for a one-on-one meet and greet event on July 6 at 2:00 p.m. CDT. Proceeds from the event benefit the National Alliance on Mental Illness Tennessee (NAMI) which provides advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives. Tickets for the event, which benefit National Alliance on Mental Illness Tennessee (NAMI), are available now here.

“Thank you for joining me on Looped! I can’t wait to talk to each and every one of you. The proceeds from this event will be donated to NAMI Tennessee which is an organization very dear to my heart,” expressed Naomi.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame recently announced that The Judds, Naomi and daughter Wynonna, will receive a star on the world’s most famous walkway. The five-time GRAMMY®, nine-time CMA and seven-time ACM Award-winning duo join Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Trisha Yearwood, Nick Cannon, Courteney Cox, Zac Efron and 28 other entertainers as part of the landmark’s newest class of 2021 inductees.

Wynonna and Naomi Judd brought a fresh acoustic sound to country music, with unmistakable harmonies surrounding Wynonna’s powerful lead vocals. The Judds are often celebrated for a rarely-interrupted stretch of 14 No. 1 hits when every single of theirs released by RCA landed in the Billboard Top 10; and a career that defined what it means to be individualists in the music business. The Judds dominated touring in the 80s with 20 Top 10 hits, have sold more than 20 million albums and blazed a trail for duos and women who have followed them.

Hailing from the Appalachian foothills of Ashland, Ky., mother and daughter duo The Judds were discovered by RCA Nashville label head Joe Galante in 1983, after they landed a guest spot on WSM-TV’s Ralph Emery Show. The Judds made their Billboard country chart debut at the end of that year, with “Had a Dream (for the Heart),” and they were on their way to a history-making career.

In 1991 when Naomi’s diagnosis of hepatitis C forced her to retire from the road, The Judds embarked on a historic farewell tour with Garth Brooks as an opening act. The following year, Wynonna launched her solo career with a self-titled album that went 5x platinum. Wynonna’s first three singles reached No. 1 on the country charts and has become a country icon in her own right. Naomi focused on her health, beating the disease and wrote several New York Times Best Sellers and became a popular motivational speaker and actress.

Over 28,000 families and counting will receive financial support through #GiveTogetherNow, a rapid-response effort to get cash directly to people struggling as a result of the coronavirus.

NFL-athlete-turned social entrepreneur Dhani Jones will interview DJ D-Nice about how he’s using music to bring people together during this time of social distancing through his #ClubQuarantine DJ sessions on Instagram Live.

Derrick “D-Nice” Jones is a talented musician and photographer who uses his dual passions to share his love for music, art, and creative culture. His most recent project, #ClubQuarantine, an Instagram Live virtual dance party, has drawn celebrities like first lady Michelle Obama, Drake and Oprah Winfrey.

Dhani Jones is partnering  with Stand Together to connect people across the country with some of the world’s most interesting people who want to share their stories, experiences, and talent to inspire and contribute to others around the globe through a new Instagram Live series of conversations called “Stand Together Live.”

Stand Together LIVE will feature interviews, performances, and masterclasses designed to help people thrive during these challenging times. Proceeds go to #GiveTogetherNow – a COVID-19 rapid response effort for families struggling during this crisis. In just one week, #GiveTogetherNow has raised over $14.4 million, enough to reach more than 28,000 families. 100 percent of the donations go directly to families in need.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has forced the world to exercise social distancing and that has had severe economic consequences for families. With so much change and uncertainty, people are creating ways to connect with each other and meaningfully contribute to those around them by sharing advice, stories, inspiration, practical support and resources for those coping with the fallout of the coronavirus.

Stand Together believes that every single person has something unique to contribute and that when people come together, we all can rise.

How Casino Games Could Double Celebrity Earnings

You don’t become one of the world’s richest musicians just by making good music. You also have to make smart business deals. Madonna is worth $590 million as she also owns health clubs, acts, and creates clothes, while P Diddy is worth $820 million for opening his own record label and for his other business ventures.

Releasing a successful song is likely the fastest way to make money in that business but it may not be the way to make the most money. The world’s biggest celebrities who make so much more money do so by diversifying their sources of income, with online casinos being a surprising option. If you are looking for an online casino, the gold coin casino at global poker comes highly recommended.

How Much Do Online Casinos Make?

A report by Technavio reveals that in the United States, the online gambling market is likely to make $4 billion in 2020. This industry is made up of several sectors, such as sports betting, table casino games like blackjack and roulette and games such as slots. The popularity of mobile casinos is part of the reason for this growth.

Without releasing their own online casino, the world’s most famous musicians are unlikely to make billions of dollars in a year. However, by entering into the market with their own game, they could potentially make millions of dollars without having to do much work.

What Celebrity Games Are There?

Some celebrities are doing this now and have allowed players to spin reels with their faces on and play casino games with their music for years. Some of the biggest slots available are the Guns N Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Michael Jackson slot games.

The Top Trumps Celebs game available at the online betting and casino site Betfair features several famous people on the reels. Players can match symbols of Brad Pitt, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Elvis Presley as they try to get the jackpot. The slot game only uses their photos but with a slot about their films or their music, they could make so much more.

Who Could Make a Casino Game?

For a musician to make a successful casino game, they’ll need to have a large selection of hits. Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice may be a popular one-hit-wonder but many players won’t want to listen to it on repeat. You would likely need three songs for the wild, the scatter, and the jackpot, to make the game entertaining.

Some of the best casino games about celebrities are ones that make us feel as though we’re going to a performance, where we are excited to hear every song that’s being played. This is why so many rock bands, such as KISS, have official slot games. You get to enjoy music in a new and exciting way without having to wait for them to go on tour.

Releasing a casino game could become a more popular option for celebrities looking to make money without having to release a new album or go on tour. It allows musicians and their fans to keep getting something out of music that was released years ago.

Top Casinos for Celebrity Gamblers

Celebrities are attracted to certain gambling destinations over others. When deciding on where to gamble, they will stick to upscale places and where they can do other things besides betting. They also tend to choose places that are close to home, since these getaways are shorter than other types of vacations. 

Las Vegas is the most popular celeb betting destination in the world, according to experts. It is an hour’s flight from Los Angeles and has several non-gaming activities including luxury shopping at stores. You will also find premium dining with restaurants by acclaimed chefs, lavish spas including and thriving nightlife. 

Las Vegas is also popular as it gives privacy. The casinos at Vegas are known to be quite accommodative to the celebs. Here they can have a spectacle or be protected from the public eye. 

The Palms Casino, for instance, arranges poker, roulette, craps or blackjack in separate rooms of the casino for celebrities by request. Ben Affleck, James Giambi, Bruce Willis, Pamela Anderson, and Ryan Seacrest are frequent visitors to this casino. The establishment stands on a 95,000 square foot ground and features both the Mint and a general gaming area. This is a high-limit lounge that offers games such as roulette and blackjack. 

There is also a no-limit poker parlor where Ben Affleck played until morning with $1,000 chips. Pamela Anderson has bet at the Playboy slot and Bruce Willis has been down $100,000 at the craps table in the general area.

Apart from Las Vegas, there are other areas that celebrities like to gamble. In Atlantic City, for example, there is the Borgata Hotel and Casino that opened in 2003. Upon its opening, a slew of luxury stores including Armani and Gucci followed next in 2006. The transformation of Atlantic City from messy to posh has attracted many celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Nick Lachey, Jon Bon Jovi, and Jamie Lyn Sigler to gamble at the Borgata. This is an upscale casino that stands on 161,000 square-foot and features gleaming hardwood floors, marble columns, and attractive archways. It also features 4, 100 slot machines, an 85-table poker room, and 200 gaming tables. Poker, blackjack, and craps are the popular celebrity games here—Jamie Lynn Sigler has been seen playing craps. 

Borgata has significantly revolutionized Atlantic City with its class and sophistication. It has managed to attract a more upscale mass, which includes stars specifically those living in New York, since it is close by. 

Another casino that is frequent with celebrities is the Casino de Monte Carlo in Monaco. Jenifer Lopez has been seen entering the casino. This is a gambling and entertainment complex that includes a casino, the office of Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, and the Grand Théâtre de Monte Carlo. The casino has two separate gambling sections, one for the general public and the other to VIPs. The Salons privés is accessible only to frequent casino customers and all table games are offered in a more exclusive setting without the slots. In the salons super-privés, customized games are permitted and here players can win as much as they want. 

The table games are available in the Salle Europe, which is the main gaming room, while slots are offered in Amérique and Salles Renaissance rooms. These two rooms are open to the general public. 

In Los Angeles, Commerce Casino is on the limelight for attracting celebrity gamblers. Ben Affleck was able to win $1,500 at a high-stakes poker game. 

Internationally, celebrities head to the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. This is the largest casino in the Southern Hemisphere and is known to have attracted stars like Andy Roddick, Maria Sharapova, and Justin Timberlake. On the main floor, the casino features small themed rooms for games including blackjack, baccarat, and poker. For several times, Andy Roddick has been seen playing poker in the designated room. 

In Canada, the Parq Vancouver Casino is another frequented gambling house for big Celebs. Although they may be losing their reputation as a marquis destination after a highly publicized case of racial profiling alleged by Canadian rapper Drake. After being denied entry into the casino, Drake purported to have been racially profiled on Twitter. The casino’s response was that they were simply following the law recently put in place to stop money laundering.

Visit one of these top spots and you will find that while you may not be certain of big winnings, running into a celebs that like to gamble might make losing easier.
