Mika – I Love Beirut

  • Beirut born, British-Lebanese singer Mika will live-stream a concert across four time zones on 19 September in aid of the people of the city
  • Mika will perform an intimate show from a special location, with a number of surprises from friends, all money from ticket sales and donations going directly to aid charities helping those affected in Beirut
  • ‘I Love Beirut’ partners with GoFundMe to launch a campaign where additional donations can be made
  • Tickets will be available to purchase via Ticketmaster worldwide at 9am BST / 10am CET on Monday, 24 August

Today, Mika announces the ‘I love Beirut’ benefit concert, which will be performed on Saturday 19 September and will be live-streamed across four time zones via YouTube. Tickets cost £10 / $10 / €10 and will be available from TicketMaster alongside the GoFundMe campaign, where people can make additional donations to the cause with 100% of all proceeds being split across Red Cross Lebanon and Save the Children Lebanon. Tickets go on sale at 9am BST / 10am CET on Monday 24 August.

This intimate performance has been initiated by Lebanese born singer Mika after he was profoundly affected by the scale of devastation from the explosion in Beirut docks and its impact on the people of the city. Following on from his ‘Love Letter to Beirut’ (see note to editors below) which he wrote directly in the aftermath of the explosion. In an effort to do more he has created ‘I Love Beirut’ an event to raise funds to help those who have been affected by the devastating explosion.

Mika comments: -“After all the years of civil war, financial crisis and political upheaval, the news of the tragic explosion was unbelievable. Although far away, my heart broke for the families losing their homes, their livelihoods and their loved ones in this catastrophe. I wanted to do something to help in any small way I can. That is why I am staging a live stream concert in aid of the people of the city. Beirut has been through so much and the resilience and strength the Lebanese people is undeniable. I have no doubt that the city will recover and the unique life of this magical city will resume once again. Beirut is the place of my birth, is part of me and will always be in my heart. ‘I ❤️ Beirut’.

The Lebanese United Nations team has reported the explosion was like 15 years of war in 15 seconds, comparing its impact to the devastation from the country’s civil war that lasted from 1975 to 1990. Miles from the blast site apartments are wrecked and families left homeless. It’s estimated 300,000 people do not have homes fit to live in, as Lebanon now has to undertake a single recovery effort of unprecedented scale.

Hospitals in Beirut are now overrun with wounded people, with some being referred to Tripoli, 50 miles to the north of Beirut, for treatment. The destruction of Beirut’s port will devastate the country further as it relies heavily on imports for its essential supplies. Red Cross Lebanon, Lebanese Food Bank, Islamic Relief and Save the Children Lebanon. are working around the clock to help those on the ground affected by the blast. Donations will fund immediate emergency response and wider long-term rehabilitation.

New iann dior Music Video

21-year-old rapper iann dior released a new music video for his song “Prospect” on Tuesday. It can be seen here!

The song features Lil Baby and was featured on Spotify playlists like Rap Caviar, Get Turnt and New Music Friday, all helping to propel it to more than 41 million streams since its May release.

The gorgeously shot video is directed by Omar Jones and inspired by Chinese landscape, architecture and colors to tribute the obvious inspiration to the beat. According to the press release, dior’s plans to tour in Asia were cancelled because of the pandemic, so the music video was his next best choice to show love to his Chinese fans.

“Prospect” is just dior’s latest in a long line of hits in a short period of time. Growing up in Corpus Christi, he quickly learned he was a talented writer and decided to turn that talent into hip-hop music. His first song earned 10,000 streams and caught the attention of Taz Taylor, the founder of Internet Money.

He released “Cutthroat” in 2019 which racked up 13 million streams on SoundCloud. He then inked a deal with 10K Projects, with whom he released his first mixtape titled “nothing’s ever good enough.”

dior gives credit to J. Cole for inspiring him to make music.

“He showed me that I could use songs to tell my own story, just like he uses his songs to tell his story,” dior said.

“Prospect” can be found along with other hits like “Pretty Girls,” “Sick and Tired” and “Paradise” on his new album, “I’m Gone,” which was released in June.

Depeche Mode – SPiRiTS In The Forest Documentary

DEPECHE MODE’S GROUNDBREAKING DOCUMENTARY SPiRiTS IN THE FOREST NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD & BLU-RAY; DVD & BLU-RAY PACKED WITH BONUS MATERIAL INCLUDING VIDEO & AUDIO OF FULL BERLIN CONCERT

Following widespread tastemaker press, fan praise and global box office success, Depeche Mode has released their boundary-breaking, feature-length documentary and concert film, Depeche Mode: SPiRiTS in the Forest, on DVD and Blu-Ray today. Fans can purchase the documentary, which Rolling Stone praised for being “great… empathetic” and Forbes declared “the new gold standard for concert films,” here.

Depeche Mode celebrated release week by partnering with Live Nation to stream LiVE SPiRiTS via Live Nation’s YouTube channel as well as their Live From Home platform.

Depeche Mode also gifted fans the video of “Cover Me” from LiVE SPiRiTS.

Click here to watch “Cover Me”, one of the key tracks from Depeche Mode’s acclaimed 14th studio album Spirit, The DVD & Blu-Ray is not only the definitive SPiRiTS in the Forest experience, but also an immersive one, chock full of both visual and auditory bonus material.

This special four-disc (two video discs plus two audio discs) configuration features two video discs containing the SPiRiTS in the Forest documentary, alongside LiVE SPiRiTS, a full-length Depeche Mode concert performance filmed at the final two shows of the Global Spirit Tour at the Waldbühne in Berlin.

The music, including several of Depeche Mode’s biggest hits, and the Spirits’ stories entwine seamlessly, illuminating the enduring power of Depeche Mode and the power music has to cross boundaries and borders and ultimately unite us.

Justice Comes Alive

On Sunday, June 28th, Justice Comes Alive—a brand new, one-day, donation-based virtual event—will unite the live music community to raise funds and awareness for organizations empowering Black communities, keeping people out of the criminal justice system, and working to dismantle the systemic racism which persists in our society.

In partnership with the PLUS1 For Black Lives Fund, proceeds raised during the day-long event will directly benefit participating artists as well as  organizations like Equal Justice Initiative, Impact Justice and The Bail Project, as well as Black and Indigenous-led grassroots organizations combating racism. Justice Comes Alive is also proud to partner with HeadCount to further encourage voter participation.

Fans can donate any amount to participate and are encouraged to make their contributions early in order to secure a spot at the show via JusticeComesAlive.com. Those who opt to donate in advance will receive a link to stream the event across various platforms on the morning of the show.

The all-day livestream marathon will feature new live performances from 50+ artists captured during the ongoing lockdown specifically for Justice Comes Alive. The new content will be created by the artists in a variety of ways, from socially distant studio sessions to remote video collaborations to crowd-less sets at venues around the country.

After raising over $170,000 during the inaugural Quarantine Comes Alive event, which directly benefited participating artists and PLUS1’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, the creators of QCA and mainstay events Brooklyn Comes Alive and Denver Comes Alive felt obliged to shift their focus to matters of racial inequality facing our nation.

Kunj Shah, president and founder of Live for Live Music and producer of Justice Comes Alive, says “Waking up the morning after Quarantine Comes Alive was bittersweet. On one hand, we raised a lot of money for some incredible causes, that will be helping a ton of people for years to come, on the other hand, the world was finally waking up to racial inequality in our justice system and everyday lives. I felt a responsibility to use our resources and platform once more to create an experience where people can enjoy music while helping those in need and educating themselves on the current issues facing our society today with the help of the Black musicians who make up this beautiful community. Quarantine has also taught me that the power of music is too potent for it to be wasted on something as simple as profit margins. Because of that, I’ve also pledged that all shows I produce moving forward will benefit a cause dear to our hearts in some way. We hope this event helps Justice, finally, Come Alive.”

In between performances, Justice Comes Alive co-hosts Nikki Glaspie (The Nth Power), Nigel Hall (Lettuce), Alvin Ford Jr (Dumpstaphunk), James Casey (Trey Anastasio Band), and Robert Sput Searight (Ghost-Note), alongside Ari Fink of Sirius XM, will lead conversations with speakers providing a platform to discuss systemic racism, how to combat it, and what can be done to bring about these changes.

Featured speakers include Terence Blanchard, Oteil Burbridge, Christian McBride, Karl Denson, Patrice Rushen, George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, and more. A full list of Justice Comes Alive featured musical performers and guest speakers can be found here.

Jon Batiste – WE ARE: A REVIVAL

Jon Batiste, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, announces WE ARE: A REVIVAL to be held on Friday, June 12 at 5PM outside Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

A celebration of Black lives through live music, this performance will be led by Batiste in conjunction with Sing For Hope, an organization offering messages of hope to veterans and community members alike through music. Batiste will be joined by band members and friends to collectively offer inspiration and hope to all. Attendees are encouraged to join in the demonstration.

Friday’s live performance follows WE ARE: THE PROTEST, a peaceful demonstration with Batiste and over 5,000 musicians, dancers, and marchers on Saturday, June 6. The march included a New Orleans-influenced second line throughout New York City, beginning with a powerful speech from Batiste in Union Square, continuing to Washington Square Park and along 6th Ave to New York City’s Empire State Building. The protest, which garnered national press coverage from MSNBC, CNN, and many others, was a direct call to action galvanizing all people to demand systematic change.

Spreading the message of WE ARE, Batiste shared, “WE ARE is a movement in response to all that’s going on in the world today. We are the ones to change the world. We are the golden ones.”
