BMI Award winner CeCe Peniston new single off upcoming EP, gaining radio play.

*“I’m getting ready to do a video,” multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter CeCe Peniston said about her recently released single “Nothing Can Stop Me (Now),” a dance tune gaining radio play. “My EP project is coming out… February of 2015.”

Peniston is best known for her multi-platinum selling club hit “Finally,” which garnered a BMI Award, and a VH1 nomination. CeCe is currently promoting her Fitness Campaign and new swim suit line.

“I lost 25 pounds…at 45 years-old,” Peniston informed me. “Proceeds from my bathing suit line go to my foundation for kids, L.O.T.S.”

The former beauty queen debut single “Finally” has sold over three million copies, and solidified CeCe Peniston in the music history books.

“It will sound and feel like old CeCe… but a little more grown up. I’ve gone through things in my life,” she said about what to expect on her new project “Nothing Can Stop Me (Now).”.

CeCe’s career was highlighted on TV One’s “Unsung” last year.

“They asked before, I said I’m not sure then,” Peniston said about the TV One coverage on her career. I asked her what she thought about the TV One episode and she said, “You realize how much you’ve come through in your life…it hit me hard… the stuff with my children…I had a lot to deal with. I realized why.”

The Ohio native’s first hit single “Finally” has carried her for 24 years.

“I had no idea,” CeCe said about the historical successful debut single. “I was writing poetry in college…it was an outlet I felt misunderstood. It was my way of letting it out. I was doing what I do naturally.”

“Finally” was released during the New Jack Swing era, and the single release met with major success as a club hit making CeCe Peniston Billboard’s U.S. Dance Club Artist of the Year. She had five Billboards #1 hits in a three year span. That success had her performing for Pope John Paul II as part of the Sisters of Glory choir. She also performed for Bill Clinton at his 42nd inauguration.

“The first one we came out with,” she said remembering the debut of her first single. Still sounding amazed by its success she continued, “…And the fact that it became a classic. Twenty-four years ago I wrote it.”

*Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures present Interstellar starring Oscar winners Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) and Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) – it arrives in theaters November 7, 2014. Interstellar is a science fiction film where reality meets creativity. The realistic visuals of space, the galaxies, the black hole, and space worm-holes were breath-takingly real.

The Rated PG-13 movie focuses on a dying earth at a time when the only chance of survival is to find a new planet. A former pilot and engineer, Cooper (McConaughey), has been enlisted to lead a team to follow up on 12 explorers from earth. The explorers were sent to 12 different galaxies through worm-holes looking for an inhabitable planet.

The problem, the time difference, they have to travel through a space worm-hole where two weeks to them is two years on earth. Of course things go wrong and each mistake means more time for them, and more years for earth. It’s a rush against the clock – will anyone be alive? Cooper agrees to help save the world even though he has to leave his teenage son, Tom (Timothee Chalamet) and young daughter Murph (Mackenzie Foy).

Murph takes the news hard and doesn’t say goodbye to her father. This becomes the passion that fuels her to – through time and space – help her father. It also fuels Cooper in his passion to return home to her – through time and space – communicate with her. Coopers’ team consists of Dr. Amelia Brand (Hathaway), scientist Romilly (David Gyasi), Doyle (Wes Bentley), and two military machines CASE and TARS.

Interstellar is directed by Academy Award winning Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception). It also stars Academy Award winner Matt Damon (Bourne franchise), Oscar nominated Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore), Oscar nominated John Lithgow (Terms of Endearment), Oscar winner Michael Caine (Inception), Casey Affleck (Tower Heist), Topher Grace (Spiderman 3), and Tony Award winner Bill Irwin (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf). The script was written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan.

Producers include Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Lynda Obst, with Jordan Goldberg, Jake Myers, Kip Thorne and Thomas Tull as executive producers. The score was composed by Oscar winner Hans Zimmer (The Lion King). Interstellar is presented in association with Legendary Pictures, a Syncopy/Lynda Obst Productions production – a Christopher Nolan film.

 *“These guys are the superstars,” said English actor David Gyasi (The Dark Knight) about his co-stars in the Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures presentation of Interstellar with Oscar Award winners Matthew McConaughey (The Wolf of Wall Street) and Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises). “It was invigorating to be around them.”

Gyasi plays Romilly one of a four-man crew enlisted to see which of 12 space explorers found a suitable planet for a dying earth. The problem is space-time and earth-time is different, earth time moves much faster.

“He is very different from me and how I look,” said David about his scientist role (Romilly) in Interstellar, the Christopher Nolan directed science fiction film. “He invested so much into one thing (science)…the having all his eggs in one basket.”

The concept of the Rated PG-13 IMAX film is about space and what it offers – black holes, time travel, worm-holes, and the ability of reaching through time and space into the past.

“There are people out there that pray and worship….if you do the science of it…this could be the science of that,” said David when ask if he believes in the movie’s concept of reaching through time and space. “This movie puts it under the umbrella of science.”

Gyasi credits also include a role in Red Tails. Interstellar, starring David Gyasi, Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, arrives in theaters November 7, 2014.

The Pulse of Entertainment: Maysa Releases Exceptionally Fresh Holiday Album, ‘A Very Maysa Christmas’

Maysa, the Queen of Jazz, releases an exceptionally fresh Christmas album, ‘A Very Maysa Christmas’

Grammy Award nominated Maysa releases Jazz Christmas album, 'A Very Maysa Christmas, featuring Gerald Albright and Will Downing.

Grammy Award nominated Maysa releases Jazz Christmas album, ‘A Very Maysa Christmas,” featuring Gerald Albright and Will Downing.

*“People asked me,” simply said Maysa, a Grammy Award nominated Contemporary Jazz singer, when asked why she recorded a Christmas album. The album is titled “A Very Maysa Christmas” and it features Gerald Albright and Will Downing. “My record company said, ‘we’ll put it out.’…and after 20,000 sales ownership comes back to me!”

The album is on the Shanachie imprint where she received a Grammy Award nomination for her 2013 project release “Blue Velvet Soul.” The Maryland native has released 11 albums, seven on Shanachie Entertainment.

“It has great arrangements,” Maysa said about the Christmas project. “My producer (Chris “Big Boy” Davis)…is really good at arranging. I’m proud of him. I think we did good Jazz R&B and Gospel.”

“A Very Maysa Christmas” is an exceptionally fresh Christmas album. My favorites on the project include “The Little Drummer Boy” because of that Jazzy spin on an old choral, I like that African flavor too, and the horn support gave it that “cherry on the cake” feeling; “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” featuring rap support from Jigz; “Jingle Bells” because she kept it traditional, but gave is some scat at the end to give it that Jazz feel; “Christmas Time is Here” is simply lovely – and I love the keys on this one; “The First Noel” sounds like if there was a sound for snow it would be this song, and “Silver Bells” featuring Gerald Albright for his voice, and Maysa taking off at the end scatting as a true Queen of Jazz should.

“Since I was a little girl I wanted to sing… since 6 years old,” Maysa pointed out when I talked about her tremendous career and contribution to Contemporary Jazz. “Each step I know God had me in his hands. He gave me things I never thought of…I relax and pray and things come to me….God diffidently heard.”

After college Maysa moved to California to work as Stevie Wonder’s backup singer in his Wonder Love Group. Later she had a phone audition for the British group founded by Bluey called Incognito, and became the face and voice of the already well known London based band. Three years later she would release her solo debut and top the Billboard Charts, as well as garner a Soul Train Award.

Maysa is touring with “Dave Koz & Friends Christmas Tour”. You can log onto www.Maysa.com for more information on “A Very Maysa Christmas,” or dates on the “Dave Koz & Friends Christmas Tour.”

Multi-Grammy Award winning Quincy Jones executive produce debut album of girl group Blush, 3rd single ‘Every Woman’ benfits breast cancer research.

*“He came on after we were together. He came on as executive producer,” said Victoria one of four members of the Pop group Blush. Victoria was referring to 27-time Grammy Award winner Quincy Jones when I asked them if he discovered the group. “Blush was formed in late 2010… in the ‘Project Lotus’ competition.”

“Project Lotus: The Search for Blush” was a reality show about the forming of the group by FarWest Entertainment. They wanted an Asian group to sell big in the U.S. The members of Blush are Victoria (China), Natsuko aka Nacho (Japan), Angeli (Philippines), and Alisha (India).

“It was six weeks of singing and dancing,” Alisha added about the experience on the “Project Lotus” reality show.

“We come together through music,” Victoria stated. “Some of us have never been away from home.”

The girls have been together for four years now and fitting in together very well it seems. Their debut single off the upcoming debut album is titled “Undivided” featuring Snoop Dogg. They released a debut EP of the same name in 2012. The second single off of the upcoming debut album is titled “Dance On” which reached #1 on Billboard Charts. Blush is currently promoting the October, 2014 single release of their third titled “Every Woman.” Proceeds from then “Every Woman” single will go to benefit the Dr. Susan Love Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Bounce TV’s original sitcom ‘Family Time” with Oar Gooding and Angell Conwell airs on Tuesdays at 10/9c.

*Nt that much, a couple more vacations and more flossing,” laughs Omar Gooding (“Single Ladies”) when asked what he’d do if he won $500,000 million in a lottery, which is the storyline of the Bounce TV original sitcom “Family Time.” “Family Time” also stars Angell Conwell (The Wash). Los Angeles native Gooding and Conwell (Soul Plan) are the Stallworth couple who wins $500,000 in a lottery. It airs on Tuesdays at 10/9c.

“I’d flip it in some way shape or form – give some to grandma,” said Angell about what she would do with the money. “Family Time” is created, produced and written by Bentley Kyle Evans (“Martin,” “The Jamie Foxx Show”). “There’s nothing like stability and peace of mind, and a home.”

This is the second season of the sitcom that also stars Bentley Kyle Evans Jr. as Devin Stallworth; Janjareen Thomas (Johnson Family Vacation) as Rachel, and Jayla Calhoun as Ebony Stallworth. Omar (“Smart Guy”) is Anthony Stallworth and Angell (“Young and the Restless”) is Lisa, a working class family that hits the lottery.

Bounce TV was founded by former mayor of Atlanta/UN Ambassador Andrew Young and Martin Luther King III in 2011, and it is now in 87 markets.

“We go through pitfalls, you never know what will pop up,” said Gooding about what one would experience as a $500,000 lottery winner.

“You have to deal with IRS,” Angell added.

Gospel band Sensere puts a fresh sound into Inspirational music

Sensere, a Jazz/Gospel band is adding a fresh new sound to Inspirational music.

Sensere, a Jazz/Gospel band is adding a fresh new sound to Inspirational music.

Sensere is a Gospel band that has a fresh sound of Jazz flavored Inspirational music and they are carving their place in the Gospel music industry one step at a time with performances on TBN’s “700 Club,” Grammy Award winner Dr. Bobby Jones’ BET “Bobby Jones Gospel,” as well as touring with Patti LaBelle and Mary Mary.

Sony and Warner Bros veteran executive Eddie Pugh discovered the group in South Florida. The band was formed by musician/singer James “J Dubb” Wright III – lead guitar player, drummer, bass player and keyboardist.

“I’m the background singer, I write the songs and produce,” said J Dubb about his role in the band that has three singers in tow. “I put the whole thing together. I grew up on music like Earth, Wind and Fire and The Temptations, and it inspired me to start a band. I didn’t see anything like that in Gospel.”

Sensere (Sensere Music/Wright Sound Enter/Gods Turn Records) are well dressed singers and band members with matching moves giving you that EWF and Temptation era feel. The other members include Brian (vocal), Terrell (vocals), Dewayne (vocal), Marcelin (guitar and sax), and Darryl (trumpet).

“My wife is also a choreographer, dancer teacher,” Wright III said about the moves. “She choreographs on the side, but in no way shape or form are we dancers. The horn set really moves. Darryl was in a marching band, the guitar player they choreograph their moves.”

“I have a strong quartet background,” James pointed out in explaining the style of the band. “It’s not something I thought of doing it just came out…the sound. I wanted a record to appeal to everybody. The youth love is.”

*I was invited to the red carpet arrivals of the NAACP 2014 7th Annual Beverly Hills-Hollywood Theatre Festival honoring plays and playwrights by playwright and friend LaRita Shelby (known on stage as Jazzy Rita). Shelby’s play is titled “Expresso Café”

“The NAACP is the most loved and renowned civil rights organization and in their effort to bring quality in the work world…it’s absolutely marvelous that they are also bringing diversity in the performing and creative arts,” said LaRita Shelby, MS (Jazz singer, actress, journalist, and author) about the event.

These playwrights had the honor of having veteran actors perform in their 10 minute plays. Lou Beatty Jr. was in “Lady Patriot,” Roger Guenveur Smith in “Frederick Douglass,” Ted Lange in “Lady Patriot,” and Phil Morris in “Soldiers Play.”

“Exposure, exposure, exposure,” said Phil Morris (“Love That Girl”) about what the event does for the independent plays that were showcased. “We need the same opportunities as everybody else.”

The NAACP Beverly-Hill – Hollywood Theatre Festival was founded by Tia Boyd and it’s her way of saluting black theater.
