About Sing 2

This holiday season, the new chapter in Illumination’s smash animated franchise arrives with big dreams and spectacular hit songs as the ever-optimistic Buster Moon and his all-star cast of performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet …all in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by global music icon Bono, in his animated film debut—to join them.

Buster (Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey) has turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City.

But with no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother Rosita (Oscar® winner Reese Witherspoon), rocker Ash (Scarlett Johansson), earnest Johnny (Taron Egerton), shy Meena (Tori Kelly) and, of course, provocateur Gunter (Nick Kroll)—have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by ruthless mogul Jimmy Crystal (Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale). 

In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystal’s attention, Gunter spontaneously pitches an outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, promising that their new show will star rock legend Clay Calloway (Bono). Problem is, Buster has never met Clay, an artist who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife. Even worse, Buster has failed to realize that Mr. Crystal is an egocentric gangster who would rather drop somebody off the roof of a building than be lied to.

As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world theatrical masterpiece, and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr. Crystal mount, Rosita’s leading role in the show gets ripped away and handed to Mr. Crystal’s spoiled daughter, Porsha, played by Grammy-nominated artist Halsey. Desperate to save the show, and his life, Buster embarks on a quest to find Clay and persuade him to return to the stage.

What begins as a dream of big-time success becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart.

Sing 2 is written and directed by acclaimed returning filmmaker Garth Jennings and features additional new characters played by music superstar Pharrell Williams, Black Panther’s Letitia Wright and comedians Eric André and Chelsea Peretti. The film is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Janet Healy. Sing 2 combines dozens of hit songs from pop to rock, K-pop to Latin, and from artists including Billie Eilish, Drake, U2, The Weeknd, Prince, Taylor Swift, BTS, Cardi B, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. With electrifying performances, breathtaking artistry and Illumination’s signature humor and heart, Sing 2 is sure to be the definitive feel-good cinematic event of the year.

LIL MOE 6BLOCKA RELEASES NEW RAMBUNCTIOUS SINGLE AND VIDEO NOTHIN

Listen to Nothin here and watch the video here!

Rising Chicago rapper Lil Moe 6Blocka continues his hot streak with another speaker-rattling song and vivid video, Nothin. Listen here and watch here. The single arrives on the heels of recent hits like Leave Em Stretched and the simmering street anthem Risky featuring 22Gz.

The bass-heavy anthem is another example of Moe’s verbal dexterity and ability to turn witty phrases into stylish storytelling. He again takes aim at his opps, warning them to stay out of the way because he isnߣt slowing down any time soon. The track is hypnotic and succinct, with Moe letting loose a barrage of bars before the beat fades. Nothin offers another view of Moe’s post-drill style, bruising but effortlessly floating with the practiced flow of a seasoned veteran.

The video, directed by Billy Kauck, finds Moe in his hometown of Chicago, cruising in a black-on-black car, spitting bars outside of the window. Though the car is flashy, Moe spends the video in an abandoned parking lot, shrouded in gray. The visual helps highlight Moe’s grit and hustle, taking moments to celebrate his come-up, but always returning to his roots. He’s alone and focused with a one-track-mind. He’s showing off the finer things in life, but he’s not letting anyone else get in his way.

Nothin is the latest in a string of exciting new releases from Lil Moe 6Blocka and another example of how the teen is capturing the imagination of his city. Thoughtful, intense songs like Ion Know have inspired tastemaking platforms like Lyrical Lemonade and Daily Chiefers to name Moe among the region’s hottest rising rappers. The Risky remix with 22Gz won even more acclaim, garnering attention from HotNewHipHop, Uproxx, and STUPIDDOPE. HipHopDX even called the original version of Risky one of the best hip-hop songs of 2021. Lil Moe is the voice of a new generation in Chicago, a bridge between the drill scene of the 2010s and the next crew of superstars primed to take over the Windy City. He’s been surging through the streets garnering millions of views on his videos. With songs like Nothin out and more on the way, Moe clearly has no intentions of letting up anytime soon.

About Lil Moe 6Blocka

Lil Moe is Chicago’s newest star poised for the spotlight and, at just 16 years old, he’s hungry to prove his skyrocketing singles are the future. I see myself on every billboard in every city, everywhere. Everybody’s gonna know my name, he says with a confidence that he’s earning every day. On early effortlessly high-octane hits like Risky, Ion Know, What I Say, and 6Blocka, Moe already seems like a fully formed star. His videos are unfiltered and depict his life on the streets garnering millions of views. His voice growls with the aggression of Windy City legends like Chief Keef and G Herbo, but Moe relies on inventive wordplay and unparalleled charisma to stand out in a busy scene.

At 16, it’s nothing but a number for Moe, and he’s hell bent on proving himself in the music he’s making. Moe’s new songs reflect this confidence, but he’s aware the past is never too far behind. It’s this combination of unbridled optimism and the knowledge that things can always be worse that keeps him barrelling forward. Anyone who’s doubted me before probably wants to be close right about now. They’re trying to call back, and I ain’t trying to talk right now, he says.

Musicians x Social Distancing

Engineers and musicians from Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music and the Houston Symphony determined social distancing will not be enough to keep musicians safe while performing on-stage.

Using a high-speed camera, researchers studied air released by musicians who were singing or playing wind instruments.

Ashok Veeraraghavan, a Rice imaging expert, said social distancing is important, but other factors must be taken into account.

“Our main message is that there is no single silver bullet. Performance venues are going to need a mix of several different risk mitigation strategies. Each of them will help a little, and the sum total of all of them will minimize risk to both the performers and the audience,” Veeraraghavan said.

Robert Yekovich, dean of the Shepherd School of Music and co-principal investigator of the study, said a goal of the study was to help people return to the stage, which is why the findings are being published.

“Peer review may take a year or more, and we believe it is imperative to make others aware of what we found,” Yekovich said.

Schlieren imaging is a method used to study airflow, so Yekovich, Veeraraghavan and John Mangum, the president and CEO of the Houston Symphony, used it to study singers and flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trombone, trumpet and tuba players.

With cameras, a high-resolution background and computational algorithms, they were able to see and track air flow after it leaves mouths and instruments and travels throughout the room.

While the travel of large droplets is well-documented, they wanted to study microdroplets, which can linger in the air for hours.

The group hypothesized that the microdroplets would be the most important droplets to pay attention to. The experiment showed that exhaled air and droplets tended to rise to the top of the room.

“Because exhaled air was warmer than the room air, we found most of it rose rather quickly, carrying the bulk of exhaled microdroplets into air currents that were primarily driven by ventilation,” Veeraraghavan said.

They now recommend music venues meeting or exceeding federal guidelines of six room air exchanges per hour. They also suggest that venues themselves consider air filtration above the stage.

Veeraraghavan still said social distancing is important because of the large droplets, adding that masks should be worn.

Mangum thought that social distancing would be the most important thing when welcoming performers and audiences back to venues, but it’s going to take a bit more than standing six feet apart.

“The Rice experiments showed it’s more complex than that. Now we want all musical organizations and individual musicians to benefit from that understanding,” Mangum said.

Local Natives Concert Review

On Saturday night, a five-piece-indie-rock band, Local Natives brought the energy to the Palladium with their symphonic tones, unique instrumentals, and airy soft lyrics. The LA native band played multiple songs throughout the night from their new album Violet Streets. This album explores adulthood, love, and friendships.

The band opened the show with a piece called “Vogue” from their album Violet Streets. The band then quickly livened up the audience by singing one of their older songs, “Sun Hands” in which lead singer, Taylor Rice jumped into the sea of screaming fans to crowd surf. 

The fans continued screaming throughout the show, especially once the band played the song, “Fountains of Youth”, which was a song released in November of 2016, right before the elections took place. 

The group finished their set with the song “When Am I Gonna Lose You”, which lead singer, Rice, explained was an ode to love. As the LA native boy band announced their last song, the crowd was in tears. The phrase “encore” could be heard from miles away. The band came back on to perform a few more songs until they had to say their last goodbye.

Complete with stunning light shows, seamless transitions, and phenomenal vocals, the Local Natives seemed to impress the crowd.
