NO1-NOAH × SUMMER WALKER

NO1-NOAH UNLEASHES HIS LONG-AWAITED VIDEO

“BONJOUR” FEATURING SUMMER WALKER

 “Bonjour” Lives on NOAH’s Captivating EP ‘You Should Come Over’

Singer-songwriter NO1-NOAH (Ghetto Earth Records/Interscope Records) steamrolls his way back into R&B contention with the video for his sweltering collaboration “Bonjour” with Summer Walker. The pair float on the flirtatious flex and blend NO1-NOAH’s enticing sensuality and self-assurance with Walker’s trademark honeyed vocals that fueled her to billions of career streams and multiple Billboard records in the last year. The video directed by Arman Mitchell and maliaSHUTup finds the melodic twosome enjoying a dinner party amongst friends after NOAH enjoys some quality time with the apple of his eye. “Bonjour” resides on NOAH’s seven-song collection You Should Come Over. Watch HERE

Along with “Bonjour,” NOAH has a fistful of highlights on his latest EP. First, he has “Bounce,” a braggadocious vibe set on an appropriately bouncy melodic beat, and “Thank God,” which has NO1-NOAH diving into the hip-hop lane, a sign of his genre versatility that will only develop with future projects. During this past BET Awards Weekend, NO1-NOAH hosted a mixer leading up to Summer Walker’s hotly anticipated A Hot Summer Night In LA at the Crypto.com Arena. There, the rising singer joined Summer onstage to perform their collaboration “Bonjour.”

After displaying beams of promise on Walker’s sizzling anthems, NO1-NOAH inked a deal with her label Ghetto Earth Records in December 2020. Her first artist, NO1-NOAH, looks to rattle the cages of R&B with his sticky hooks and mastery of contemporary R&B’s melodic stylings. Despite a young career, the newcomer has already skyrocketed to more than 130 million streams in the U.S. alone. The budding star also sharpened his live performance skills on the road with “The Summer Walker Series” concerts, which recently played dates in Houston, Chicago, and Dallas.

The promising songwriter was named one of Billboard’s 15 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2020. Touted for his “ethereal vocals and intrepid lyricism,” NO1-NOAH first caused shockwaves in the R&B world when he appeared on Summer Walker’s EP Life on Earth on the standout tracks “SWV” and “White Tee.” He also recently joined Summer during her headlining set at The Roots Picnic earlier this month. With publications such as Rolling Stone and XXL already praising NO1-NOAH for his extraordinary talents, You Should Come Over heralds the coming of the newest star in the R&B universe.

Now United × OP3N

Simon Fuller (American Idol, Spice Girls, So You Think You Can Dance) has partnered with OP3N and the Culture Catalyst – a recently announced $100 million commitment to fostering arts and entertainment projects on the Avalanche blockchain – to develop and produce an innovative musical film with the world’s first global pop group Now United

The Musical is a live-action musical film featuring members of Now United and original songs. It will be available to the NFT pass holders on the recently launched OP3N app. The mission of the project is to inspire schools everywhere to create their own versions of performances from the musical and compete for honors within the OP3N platform through community voting.

Simon Fuller comments: “This project allows me to redefine how an audience can engage with content. Not only can it be enjoyed simply as entertainment, but you can actually participate, initially through learning and then by creating your own version of the musical with your friends or school. It is a celebration of the art of musical theater and the passion for self expression and new technology that allows people to get involved in ways never before imagined.”

Using the native video and music player on the OP3N app, NFT pass holders will also be able to stream the The Musical and access a broad range of related content including rehearsals, choreography lessons and interviews with the cast. The Op3n app will also facilitate submissions and voting on a competition based on the Musical, as well as the purchase of NFTs.

OP3N, a launchpad for IP and communities in Web3, recently partnered with the Avalanche Foundation to launch and co-finance Culture Catalyst – a $100 million initiative to redefine the entertainment business model. Culture Catalyst will fund and support the development of arts, entertainment and culture projects on the Avalanche public blockchain.

“Web3 is powering a new paradigm in music and entertainment, but many artists have been reluctant to dive in for lack of an environmentally responsible solution that can consistently deliver a good user experience. In Avalanche, we’ve found the best possible answer and we couldn’t be more excited to bring these capabilities to bear to help Simon Fuller and Now United realize their vision for interactive entertainment’, said OP3N studios co-founders, Jaeson Ma and Eric Tu

From creator-inspired tokens to NFTs, decentralized tech is redefining the way arts and entertainment is created, financed and consumed. The OP3N – Avalanche initiative is designed to inspire a diverse range of blockchain-based creator communities’ projects and provide funding for emerging artists, entertainers, filmmakers and musicians who are looking to expand beyond traditional channels and expand paradigms for ownership.

“We believe that success in collaboration begins with choosing the right partners and we’re delighted to be supporting this ground-breaking project”, said John Nahas, VP of Business Development for Ava Labs.

“In OP3N and Simon Fuller, we have found visionaries who not only share our concern for the environment, but who also recognize the magic in direct connections between fans and creators”, added Ava Labs’ Chief Marketing Officer, Devon Ferreira.

“I’m super excited to be working with Simon and Now United to bring something truly innovative into the NFT space. We will be utilizing Avalanche to create new ways of fan engagement and build a sustainable fan base and community for years to come,” said Nelson Diaz, OP3N Chief Marketing Officer and Founder of Long Lost Friends.

Culture Catalyst recently announced projects with Grimes for an Intergalactic Children’s Metaverse Book that will be released later this year. Additionally, singer-songwriter Ava Max announced her partnership with Culture Catalyst for the launch of her next music video in collaboration with iconic director Joseph Kanh. Culture Catalyst comes after OP3N’s $10 million seed funding round that brought together heavyweights from the worlds of entertainment, tech and gaming.

For You, Paige

For You, Paige, the first commissioned TikTok musical, will be performed live on stage in New York City and streamed globally, exclusively on TikTok, via the TikTok handle on April 14 at 7:00 p.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. PT.

Hosted by Andy Cohen (Bravo), and starring Roman Banks (High School Musical: The Musical: The Series) and Sri Ramesh (EarCandy), For You, Paige, was created by Daniel Mertzlufft as a follow up to his work on viral sensation, Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical. On this new production, Mertzlufft serves as executive producer, co-writer, composer, executive music supervisor and music supervisor, leading a team of incredible creators including co-writer Kate Leonard, songwriters Julia Riew, Katherine Lynn-Rose, RJ Christian, Blake Rouse, Morgan Reilly, Alex Engelberg, and Kate Leonard with orchestrations by Macy Schmidt, who also serves as co-executive producer.

Alongside Banks and Ramesh, the production stars Krystina Alabado as Kaia, and features James Henry as Tyler and JJ Niemann as Jarek, along with Aveena Sawyer, Alysia Velez, Fernell Hogan, Cori Jaskier, Max Antonio Gonzalez, Emily Stillings, Thursday Farrar and Paul Schoeffler.

Media.Monks, an international creative agency and innovation leader with 50+ talent hubs around the world, co-created the project with Mertzlufft and brought together an impressive team of Broadway creatives to bring the collective vision to life. Leadership from Media.Monks on this project is highlighted by executive producer Joshua Asen, and producers Danielle Dioguardi and Jessica Norton, with support from Global Head of Entertainment Eric Shamlin.

Mertzlufft was inspired by the extensive musical theater community on TikTok to develop For You, Paige, collaborating with creators from all over the world to build this show.

“The way theater is being created and consumed is changing,” shared Mertzlufft. “We are now able to give theater access to people across the globe through their screens, and TikTok is the perfect platform to empower this. It’s not about follower count, it’s about the work you are putting out there. It’s so exciting to constantly see new voices emerge from this platform, and even more exciting to see TikTok not only acknowledge that community but embrace it. I hope For You, Paige serves as a love letter to all of those people.” 

In a story inspired by real TikTokers, teenage music nerd Landon (played by Roman Banks) collaborates with his best friend Paige (played by Sri Ramesh) on a TikTok song inspired by her favorite book series. Landon’s TikTok goes viral, thrusting him into the spotlight—leaving Paige behind. When a producer offers Landon the opportunity to adapt the book series into a musical, Landon discovers that the glory of doing it all himself isn’t worth the stress and enlists the help of Paige and the TikTok community to turn the show into a huge success.

This production follows the wildly successful Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical, which raised over $2 Million for The Actor’s Fund and provided a sense of hope and excitement amidst a challenging time for theater during the pandemic. 

Behind the curtain, returning artisans and craft leads include co-EP, executive music producer and music director Macy Schmidt, a 2022 Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree, and her Broadway Sinfonietta, the acclaimed all-women, primarily women-of-color orchestra, which recorded the score for the show.

About Love via Russ Rowland for use by 360 Magazine

Chekhov + Turgenev

Blueprint Productions presents adaptations of the works of Chekhov and Turgenev, presented in repertory, and scored in jazz: About Love, a musical play with songs, inspired by Ivan Turgenev’s novella, “First Love”; and Three Sisters, a sparkling new adaptation of the play by Anton Chekhov. Both productions are adapted and directed by Will Pomerantz, and feature an original jazz score by Nancy Harrow, performed nightly by a live jazz quartet. It will be a four-week repertory, May 10 through June 5 at The Sheen Center (18 Bleecker Street at the corner of Elizabeth Street, NYC) in The Frank Shiner Theater. The official opening is Thursday, May 19. Tickets are available online HERE, by phone, or in-person at The Sheen Center box office Monday to Friday noon to 5 PM at least one hour before performances.

About Love tells the compelling story of a young man who expects to spend a quiet summer with his parents in the Russian countryside, but soon discovers those three months will be the most consequential of his life. He learns the difference between love and passion, and the ephemeral nature of life itself. About Love is inspired by Ivan Turgenev’s beautifully crafted short story, “First Love,” originally published in 1860. Turgenev was one of Russia’s first modern writers to achieve international acclaim with his novel, Fathers and Sons, and his play, A Month in the Country

In Chekhov’s masterpiece, Three Sisters, Olga, Masha and Irina are talented, cultured young women who were raised in urban Moscow, but have been living in a small provincial town for eleven years. Within these less than vibrant surroundings, each pursues her dreams and passions amongst the soldiers garrisoned there, all while yearning for a return to Moscow. In this world-premiere version, audiences will experience afresh what makes this writer so memorable and indispensable.

The company of Chekhov + Turgenev features John Ahlin, Silvia Bond, Essence Brown, Nathan Hinton, Miles G. Jackson, Nehal Joshi, Amanda Nichols, Tom Patterson, Elizabeth Ramos, Tommy Schrider, Jean Tafler, Pilar Witherspoon and more to be announced.

Chekhov + Turgenev features a live jazz quartet nightly: music director Misha Josephs on guitar, Ben Sutin on violin, Ryan Berg on bass, and Steve Picataggio on drums. The scenic design is by Brian Staton, lighting design by Allen Hahn and costume design by Whitney Locher. Heather Arnson’s YesAnd Productions serves as General Management.

“Chekhov + Turgenev is a unique theatrical opportunity for audiences to experience, in rotating repertory, two writers who changed playwriting forever, and whose influence still resonates today,” says adaptor and director Will Pomerantz. “Both Chekhov and Turgenev strived to contain the entirety of the human experience in their work, and they did it with a combination of heart, humor and humanity that remains unparalleled. The original jazz scores by beloved jazz singer and composer Nancy Harrow punctuate and underscore these timeless works. Both productions will share a company of actors who will delight audiences with their versatility, as they double the many singular roles created by these two celebrated writers.”

Four Seasons Resort Nevis Celebrates Alexander Hamilton

Hamilton’s story may have begun on the small island of Nevis, but the impact he made in US history made him a household name. And this fall, Four Seasons Resort Nevis invites guests to take a walk through history as they experience the birthplace of one of the United States’ most notable Founding Fathers with the newly launched Alexander Hamilton package. Fans of the famed Hamilton musical may not realize that the Caribbean island the show refers to is the island of Nevis, but they will now have the opportunity to learn about where it all began for this young historical leader.

“Nevis might be a little unknown island at the edge of the Caribbean, but it’s filled with so much history,” says Yvette Thomas-Henry, Regional Vice President and General Manager. “Not much has changed with Charlestown since those times, so you can really feel the legacy of what once was when Hamilton was living on the island.”

With rates starting at USD 9,660 per night, the Alexander Hamilton package includes $1,000 per person Resort credit that can be used for a wide variety of dining, activities and experiences. A private rum pairing dinner, a movie night with dinner under the stars, an historical botanical tour with Guest Experience Director Mac Kee France, and an exclusive Hamilton-style portrait painting session for guests to take home are also a part of this historical experience.

Not only will guests get to experience a piece of Nevisian and American history with this package, but they’ll also get to stay in a suite inspired by and named after Nevis’ most famous native son. In the recently redesigned one-bedroom suite, the décor is light, clean and fresh,  while preserving the humble charm of Nevis with hints of Caribbean notes from the botanical wallpaper in the bedroom to the uniquely designed chairs that feature the island’s ambassador, the Green Vervet monkey. Guests will come to find that the 1,761 square foot suite is an inviting space ideal for entertaining—hosting family and friends for an intimate dinner around the table with seating for up to eight or unwinding outdoors on the expansive patio for a nightcap while enjoying the Caribbean breeze and sweet sounds of Nevis. 

Guests who have passed the four-day “Vacation in Place” period are also welcome to explore the island and visit the former Founding Father’s home. By reserving an island tour with a historical storyteller, guests can visit Hamilton’s birthplace, located just 10 minutes from the Resort in the heart of Charlestown. The two-story building overlooking the Charlestown Harbour is called the Hamilton House. It houses one of the island’s two museums on the first floor. The second floor is the meeting room for the Nevis House of Assembly. The stone building was built around 1680 but was destroyed in an earthquake in 1840 and restored in 1983. Hamilton’s original home is also located on the property after being restored due to the same earthquake. 

In addition to sharing the history of Alexander Hamilton in the Caribbean, the package will make a donation to the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS foundation, an organization that helps provide groceries, medication and health care for those affected by HIV/AIDS, COVID-19 and other life-threatening illnesses.  

Far from “forgotten spot in the Caribbean” anymore, travellers to Nevis can walk in the footsteps of U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton with a Spotify playlist curated by BELLOSOUND for guests on property to enjoy.

Our island home is beaming with natural beauty, from the green summit of Nevis Peak, down to the sugar-soft sand of Pinney’s Beach.
