Israel Philharmonic Returns to U.S

Israel Philharmonic Returns to the U.S. with Quartet Performances at Miami Gala

The Philharmonic celebrates its 85th anniversary in the U.S. after the cancellation of 2020-2021 tour due to COVID-19

American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (AFIPO) announced a series of galas headlined by an Israel Philharmonic string quartet in seven U.S. cities this December, including a Gala in Miami on December 2nd supported by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. The events mark the first international performances after more than a year under lockdown and coincide with the Philharmonic’s return to its home concert hall for its 85th season.

“As the world emerges from a global pandemic—and as our institution returns from the first hiatus in its storied history—we believe that experiencing the music of the Israel Philharmonic in person is a needed force for joy and healing,” said Danielle Ames Spivak, CEO and Executive Vice President of AFIPO. “The Israel Philharmonic was founded during an unprecedented crisis—to save Jewish musicians fleeing the Holocaust. Resiliency is the lifeblood of our orchestra, and we are proud to once again emerge from this period of hardship stronger than ever before.”

The galas will kick off in New York on December 1st with host Bar Refaeli and will honor prominent patrons and friends of the institution, including “Jeweler to the Stars” and philanthropist Lorraine Schwartz (New York), Jewish education revolutionary and philanthropist Harold Grinspoon (Miami), and renowned philanthropists  Barbro & Bernard Osher and Varda Rabin (San Francisco).

“We are thrilled to be honoring Harold Grinspoon—not only for his visionary leadership in creating programming that reaches families from all walks of life but also for demonstrating the power of sharing literacy and the arts,” said Ames Spivak. “The Harold Grinspoon Foundation and its flagship program, PJ Library, are vital programming partners that allow us to bring the music of the Israel Philharmonic to our youngest generations.”

The string quartet is comprised of Israel Philharmonic Concertmaster David Radzynski, violinist Polina Yehudin, violist Yoni Gertner, and Principal Cello Haran Meltzer.

“The Philharmonic is Israel’s preeminent cultural ambassador,” said Jim Ackerman, President of the AFIPO Board of Directors. “Bringing a string quartet—one of the most extraordinary and historic chamber music ensembles—to the United States is the premier way to showcase the incredible talent Israel has to offer.”

Americup 2021

A post-pandemic basketball tournament unlike anything else in the world, FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup 2021, will arrive in Miami’s Bayfront Park next month. On November 12-14th, in the home of the Miami Heat, Hurricanes, and countless other legendary sports teams, FIBA, in partnership with VAUNT and in collaboration with LiveOne’s LiveXLive, will bring the US Men’s National Team and Tokyo 2020 Olympic Gold US Women’s National Team–along with 18 Countries represented by the best 3×3 national teams in Americas–to Miami for the first-ever 3×3 AmeriCup. A three-day hybrid pop-culture event, FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup 2021, will feature a star-studded in-person and virtual music festival, Music Lives: Ballerfest, LiveOne’s original franchise, with Afrobeats, EDM, Hip Hop, Latin, R&B and country music performances that will be livestreamed on LiveXLive. Additionally, the festival will include business panels on industry disruptions. The FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup 2021  will be a culture-shifting event, unlike any live, entertainment, and sporting event in the post-COVID world and the first in Miami’s history.

FIBA partnered with VAUNT, a sports and entertainment intellectual property (IP) development company that creates and produces alternative competitions and culturally relevant content, and Vaunt will collaborate with LiveOne’s LiveXLive, a global platform for livestream and on-demand audio, video, and podcast/vodcast content in music, comedy, sports, and pop culture. The collaboration will create the first-of-its-kind festival. The historic moment marks FIBA’s return to Miami nine years after the City hosted the final of the first-ever FIBA 3×3 World Tour and commences VAUNT’s multi-year relationship as the Local Organizing Committee with FIBA for the exclusive rights to the FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup on the continents. 

“I have fond memories of playing in FIBA competitions and representing my country on Team USA in 2001,” said VAUNT CEO, Roger Mason Jr. “Finishing my career with the Miami Heat and being able to bring FIBA AmeriCup 3×3 2021 to Miami is an honor. With the opportunities to coordinate the intersections of sports, music, technology, and competition, my journey as an NBA player and industry executive comes full-circle in the vision of this event.”

“The FIBA 3×3  AmeriCup 2021 will be a great way to expand the game across the globe,” FIBA’s office in the Americas Executive Director, Carlos Alves, said. “Having the FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup 2021 in Miami is not only a homecoming for our regional head office, but more consequentially, a city encompassing the main traits of the game: urban, iconic, vibrant, international, and multicultural.”

“Music and sports naturally complement one another. LiveOne is excited to bring this emerging culture to Miami and a global audience,” Dermot McCormack, President of LiveOne. “Music Lives: Ballerfest will offer fans a truly unparalleled listening, interactive and live streaming viewing experience and will be the blueprint for the future of all hybrid festivals.”

“FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup 2021 is a great event to add to Miami’s entertainment scene,” said Miami Mayor, Francis Suarez. “Miami is the best City in America for sports fans and I’m so excited to be adding the AmeriCup to the list of what we have to offer fans—Miami welcomes FIBA, VAUNT, LiveOne, and all of those involved for three days of basketball, music, and entertainment.”

“After nine years, I’m excited to see the return of FIBA to Miami-Dade,” said Mayor of Miami-Dade County, Daniella Levine Cava. “I know this event will draw leaders in sports, business, and entertainment to our community, inspiring young people who dream of becoming great athletes both at home and around the world. Miami-Dade is proud to host dynamic, global, world-class events like FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup 2021 as we work to build back our economy stronger than ever from the pandemic.”

“I’m excited to be a part of this historic event,” said legendary championship boxer and confirmed festival participant Floyd Mayweather. “It’s unique to have so many different people at the top-of-their-game coming together to one event and venue, especially in a great city like Miami.” 

“It’s an honor to produce the 3on3 Celebrity Basketball games with VAUNT,” said Michael Mak, CEO & Founder of Celebrity Sports Entertainment “CSE”. The games will offer a fresh perspective to sporting events and will deliver their mission of creating meaningful content that shifts cultural norms for live entertainment. FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup 2021  is a dope way for celebrities and championship athletes to do what they love while interacting with their peers in business and entertainment.”

“I’m eager for people to experience this unique, innovative event that will pair Sports and musical performances,” said Darren Collison, former NBA player, AmeriCup attendee and youth clinics host. “I’m excited to host the youth clinical and the larger-than-life dreams and ambitions to participate amongst such esteemed sports industry leaders and athletes.”

The festival will be live-streamed on LiveXLive’s platform. Each day, from (9:30am  to 6:30pm EST), the event will be free. After 7pm, tickets will be required for entry for the end-of-the-day games and artist performances.

Eighty 8 – Visual Mixtape

Buzzworthy Cash Money Records signee Eighty8 gives a glorifying glimpse to his budding star status with the release of his Visual Mixtape. The unique offering is made available to watch and experience on his YouTube channel Official Eighty8 HERE

The Northside Miami native, who also recently unveiled his widely popular debut single “Hit” a few weeks ago, delivers a tantalizing audio-visual experience that takes viewers to the emotive depths of his spirit, story, and artistic freedom as he rises to national notoriety. 

The Visual Mixtape is a conceptual presentation featuring snippets of  Eighty8’s new music and behind-the-scenes footage. While each track has a distinct style, they are all seamlessly interconnected to introduce the soundscape of the Haitian/Jamaican American artist’s sensational range comprised of tracks “Trilly Wonka,” “Heartless,” “Juvi” “Wild Child,” “Feel It In The Air” and “Hit.” 

Eighty8 showcases a taste for what’s to come as he solidifies status as 2022’s one to watch. 

About Eighty8

Roots can shape personality. Our lineage informs how we act and how we react to any given situation. Drawing on Jamaican and Haitian heritage, Eighty8 translates emotional extremes into an unpredictable and undeniable hybrid of R&B, hip-hop, pop, and island flavors. Generating nearly 3 million Spotify streams independently, receiving acclaim from Hip Hop DX, Hip Hop N More, On Smash and signing to Cash Money Records in 2020, he’s ready to formally introduce himself. He adopted his name during a period of self-discovery after learning that the number 8 represents a sense of power and exemplifies peace and unity. 

Born and raised on the North Side of Miami, at three-years-old, he realized he could sing and spent hours replaying an old Michael Jackson VHS as he obsessively studied the King of Pop. Throughout middle school, he sang to girls in the hallway and shutdown the stage with show-stopping performances at pep rallies and talent shows. As a teen, he joined the R&B group 4thand Ocean, recording music for Warner Bros. Records. Following the group’s split, he caught the attention of Balistic Beats and dropped the single “Pree.” Not only did it light up radio in Miami, the song amassed 1.6 million Spotify streams. On its heels, he maintained this momentum with “Trilly Wonka,” which accumulated another 561K Spotify streams. The music made its way to Cash Money Records and Eighty8 was signed to the roster in 2020.

Aidan Bissett – Get Dumped

Aidan Bissett returns with an introspective, headbanging, feel-good anthem for anyone who’s ever been dumped. Listen to Dumped, which he co-produced with Ryan Daly (Fitz and the Tantrums, Adam Lambert, Cyn), HERE. After writing the guitar-driven break-up song, Bissett took to TikTok to explain how the track came together in this tongue-in-cheek clip.

Getting dumped is the worst feeling in the world, but screaming this song will make you feel a whole lot better, says Aidan Bissett. The song is about learning that you are better off on your own and that it’s okay to be alone.

Director Brooke James (Troye Sivan) matches the energy of Bissett’s performance with the vibrant, kinetic official video for Dumped. Holed up in a typical teen bedroom, Bissett thoughtfully unpacks his heartbreak on the verses, then rages with his guitar on the scream-along chorus as the camera spins and zooms with equal frenzy. View the video HERE.

Dumped is the follow-up to So High which Euphoria praised as a certified summer bop this song demands to be played after dark either by the pool or the beach with a fire roaring nearby and drinks being passed around among friends. The Honey Pop declared, Aidan Bissett is an artist that everyone needs to be paying attention to. We have a feeling this is only the beginning of his genius artistry.

Born in Florida, Bissett was raised on classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. He moved to Oregon with his family when he was five and started playing electric guitar in second grade. When his family moved back to Florida, he began teaching himself to produce his own music. Just a year ago, Bissett released his first single,Different, which immediately gained traction online.

As he amassed a sizable following on TikTok, he next put out Worst Girls of All Time, an anti-love-song spiked with moody guitar riffs that landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, and More Than Friends. Written, recorded, and produced entirely by Bissett, the songs earned him major buzz and landed the 18-year-old a deal with Capitol Records before he had even graduated from high school. Combined global streams of Bissett’s first three tracks and his Capital debut single, Communication are nearing 11 million.

Jordan Hollywood – Pleasures

Florida rapper, singer, producer, and hitmaking CEO Jordan Hollywood unleashes “Pleasures” a new single and music video out now via Quality Control Music/Motown Records. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE. The song paves the way for his upcoming album, Only The Paranoid Survive, coming soon.

On the track, a hypnotic beat grates up against his intent flow. His nimble rhymes give way to a confessional chorus, “I wake up everyday. I tell my son that I love himߪI miss my mom so much I wish that I could hug you.” In the accompanying visual, a psychotherapist reminds Jordan, Only The Paranoid Survive, before he raps from the couch. As stacks fly, he ends up in a literal battle of tug-of-war before facing off against an entire tactical team. 

“Pleasures” follows his energized summer banger “The Ugly Song” a collaboration with producer legend Timbaland who told Jordan “You really took it there. Lyrically, video style, concept. I just wanna be the added piece to the puzzle.” ThPle record received acclaim from NME, REVOLT, and more, XXL named it among, “The 13 Best New Songs This Week,” and HotNewHipHop raved, “Jordan Hollywood has his hands on a summer smash.”

About Jordan Hollywood

Jordan Hollywood believes paranoia is integral to his success. “I think being paranoid is healthy,” says the Florida native. “Overthinking certain situations can reduce the losses you take in life.” It’s difficult to argue with the versatile artist, producer, CEO, and hustler. His singular ability to blend witty punchlines, vulnerable verses, and melodic croons into captivating rap/R&B/pop hybrids has resonated with his growing fanbase for years. After a stint in his youth writing for fellow Broward County artist Jason Derulo, Hollywood released a successful independent debut Sorry for This in 2016 and then signed with Quality Control Music for 2018’s FINALLY!. The whole way, he’s held to his ever-skeptical mentality, which has now afforded him the space and close-knit creative circle to create his most honest and mature album to date the forthcoming Only the Paranoid Survive. The album is a document of Hollywood’s growth as he perfects the art of balancing family, loyalty, and financial gains. Only the Paranoid Survive is a product of the countless hours Hollywood spent holed up in his home studio speaking to the microphone about everything from the pressures and anxieties of the unknown, new fatherhood, and avoiding people who he doesn’t trust.  The emotions he spills don’t feel born of negativity, but of self-preservation through his worries, he’s learning how to thrive.
