We are deeply grateful to The International Foundation for Arts and Culture for its vision and generosity in helping to safeguard the future of Sing for Hope and the communities we serve.”

In addition to supporting Sing for Hope’s ongoing dynamic arts programming, Dr. Handa’s philanthropy makes possible the creation of Sing for Hope’s new global arts program, HandaHarmony, which launched with a special flagship Sing for Hope Piano as the centerpiece of the youth-arts-centered U.N. High Level Political Forum Side Event on July 16, 2019. Sing for Hope’s new global arts program activates the arts as a driver of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sing for Hope Piano inaugurated at the event was created by Sing for Hope Artist Partners Sydney Foreman and Arelí Rocha, and features artwork sourced by UNICEF from submissions by more than 3,600 children and youth worldwide. At the conclusion of the event, this special SFH Piano was placed at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, a.k.a. “The Gateway to United Nations,” where it will be open to the public through August 2nd for anyone and everyone to play. After its time on the plaza, it will be placed in a permanent home in a local NYC public school as part of Sing for Hope’s ongoing partnership with the New York City Department of Education.

"DESPACITO" Is Most-Viewed YouTube Music Video Ever, Hits 6.3 Billion Views and #1 in 45 Countries' Charts



"Despacito" is "Most-Viewed YouTube Video" with incredible 6.3 billion views, gets "Goodwill Citizens" Award by "GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE" Novelist John Griswald.

"Girl From Rue Serpente" presents its first "Goodwill Citizen" award to "Despacito," YouTube's Most-Viewed Video ever, topping charts in 45 countries with over 6.3 billion views world-wide.”

— Stan Zipperman

HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Despacito" could become the first "international anthem" for the new One-World Party or the Goodwill Citizens Party if those names are chosen by the world's coming new super society and new political campaigns now in the making. With 6.3 billion people of the 7.7 world population, it is possible to see how over 80% of the earth's people theoretically have viewed the world-famous hit single "Descacito" favorably — or very favorably at one time or another. Add to this, YouTube is the second largest internet website in the world; only Google is ahead of YouTube in No.1 position. Nothing else comes close to this phenomenal situation on the planet that is playing out right now as you read this. Is it the time for a truly bone fide "music miracle" to actually be able to change the world? This is BIG, BIG NEWS! INDEED!

"Despacito," which means "Slowly" in English, is a Latin pop song performed by Luis Fonsi and his rapper friend Daddy Yankee of Puerto Rico from their "Vida" album. The composers are being named the first "Goodwill Citizens" recipient award winners presented to Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee by "Girl From Rue Serpente" novelist John Griswald www.girlfromrueserpente.com for its "joyous, uplifting music and amazing success stories throughout the world," which includes topping the charts in 45 different countries and for being named the "Most-Viewed YouTube Video" ever with over 6.3 billion views in the latest report by YouTube!

2017 was the year it all started to happen for "Despacito." And the momentum is building stronger than ever!

The astonishing music of "Despacito" which was produced in a studio in Miami, Florida, filmed on the shantytown streets of La Perla neighborhood of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and released in the United States in August 2017, eventually became YouTube videos "Most-viewed YouTube Video" ever with up to the current over 6.3 billion views today. There are other worthy videos behind it, including some remixes by Justin Bieber himself sung in English and a concert with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee as his guests, but right now and for the foreseeable future, the day belongs to Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. And we wish to add the Miss Universe of 2006 Zuleyka Rivera, who definitely co-starred to the best of her abilities with her hair creating an aura like Beyonce does with her hair.

While "Despacito's" story is crowded with many firsts in the music and video business, one of the most astonishing facts is that while the video has reached the No 1 status as YouTube's the Most-viewed Video of all time, especially in the United States, it is sung in Spanish only. Experts in the field who explain these kinds of things that happen in life, have't been able to get a full handle on this eerie phenomenon.

In case you're wondering why "Girl From Rue Serpente" novelist John Griswald choose to give its first "Goodwill Citizen" award to the folks connected to "Despacito" it is because the exciting video is awesomely uplifting and in many ways "free-spirited" and "spiritual" and "inspiring" — much like the epic war novel "Girl From Rue Serpente" proves to be. "Girl From Rue Serpente" is a tragic love story of star-crossed lovers that takes place in Paris, France during the Allied Liberation of the fabled city from the Nazi Occupation in the Second World War.

As the "Girl From Rue Serpente" book makes its way up the sales charts at Amazon www.amazon.com, Barnes and Noble www.barnesandnoble.com, Walmart www.walmart.com and Books-A-Million www.booksamillion.com on its way to Best Sellers Lists around the world, the novel is also looking to interest movie producers to bring this compelling story to the motion picture screen as a future blockbuster. Meanwhile, you are invited to buy yourself a copy of "Girl From Rue Serpente" for your entertainment reading pleasure.

World War II love stories have been enchanting movie goers the globe over. Think about the classic "Casablanca", which does take place, if briefly, in Paris as well as Casablanca. The beauty and mysticism of Paris and the horror of war, often make for the perfect mixture of emotions.

There is also a constant buzz regarding the haunting book cover design artwork by Brazilian artist Ricardo Movits whose painting for "Girl From Rue Serpente" is making news these days. Please go to www.artcollectorswebsite.com to read more about him and his painting masterpiece.

Last comments. We need a commitment from the world's billionaires, millionaires and leading CEO's of private and public companies to pledge support to this new social movement for a new One-World, a One-World society to save us all — sooner than later. You know who you are, don't you Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, Bernard Arnault, Jim Walton, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, Larry Ellison and Michael Blumberg?

The sooner the current world leaders move to participate in the coming new One-World order the better. The quick movers will lead us into a new and future world-order which is calling out to us right now! Now is the time to jump on the bandwagon!

All of this brings us back to the phenomenon of "Despacito's" YouTube Music Video and what appears to be a never-ending story as all "Goodwill Citizens" also bring credit and pride to the Puerto Rican people as they struggle for more feel good and feel right "music miracles" in their daily lives.

Thank you.

Utopia Keyboardist GLASYS To Release New Single Feat. Todd Rundgren





GLASYS new single “People” featuring Todd Rundgren to be released on July 26th

PORTLAND, OR, USA, July 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — GLASYS (Gil Assayas) is a pianist, synthesist, producer and vocalist who delivers intricate virtuosic keyboard parts, electronic soundscapes and impassioned vocals in one package that combines his many influences including Electronic music, Alternative Rock, Jazz and Classical music.

Since relocating to the US from Israel three years ago, GLASYS has been endorsed by major gear manufacturers such as Nord Keyboards, 64 Audio, Sequential and Spectrasonics, has developed a large social media presence with over two million total video views, has been featured on the GRAMMY's website, and has had his song “The Pressure” played at a Portland Trailblazers NBA game. Recently, he was discovered by Hip-Hop giant T-Pain on reddit and the two are now collaborating. GLASYS is also currently touring with legendary 70s-80s band Utopia (led by Todd Rundgren).

GLASYS released his debut EP “The Pressure” in September 2016. His first full-length album “Defective Humanity” was successfully funded on Kickstarter and will be released on August 2nd, 2019. The new single “People” featuring Todd Rundgren will be released on July 25th.

Says GLASYS, “The inspiration for this song is human nature, and more specifically the way we humans are never truly satisfied with what we have and are always chasing something 'better' in life, be it success, more money, a new car, a relationship etc. I personally struggle a lot with living in the moment, and the song addresses that struggle.

“Ever since I wrote this song I thought that Todd would be perfect for it, but I wasn't sure if he'd have the time to collaborate seeing as he's so busy. I was very pleasantly surprised when I sent him a demo of the song and he replied 5 minutes later saying that he'd love to do it! He ended up recording his parts on tour (on a cruise ship, I believe). I didn't give him any specific instructions, just told him to add whatever he feels like adding. He recorded some great vocals, new harmonies and an awesome guitar solo that took the song to a new level. I'm extremely grateful for his support and really happy with the results.”

Check out the premiere of GLASYS new single “People”:

GLASYS forthcoming album “Defective Humanity” (to be released on August 2nd) is self produced and will include his best songs from the past 2-3 years. “I have a pretty active YouTube channel to which I upload improvisations and short musical ideas, so I was able to receive feedback from my viewers and develop their favorite tunes into full tracks. Not all the songs were created that way though, some are extremely personal and have never been heard by anyone, in any form. The album will contain both instrumental and vocal songs.”

GLASYS will also be playing keyboards on the forthcoming Tribute To The Beatles' White Album tour featuring Micky Dolenz (The Monkees), Todd Rundgren, Christopher Cross, Jason Scheff (Chicago) and Joey Molland (Badfinger)! Musical Director: Joey Curatolo (the musical director of RAIN: A Tribute to The Beatles).

Here's what's been said about GLASYS:

“I've never seen anything like this in my life. Man. PM me if you wanna work together, bro. This is amazing!” – T-Pain

“A master at the keys, Israel instrumentalist Gil Assayas shares animated vocals with faultless keyboard and synth playing to make jazzy electronic you can't help but dance to.” – The Deli Portland

“From the first bar of the title track of GLASYS' debut EP 'The Pressure,' it is already clear that Gil Assayas is a musician of rare talent and skill. The Portland based Assayas is possessed of rather intimidating piano chops and assembled an impressive collective of musicians for the project.” – Jonathan Wilson, Northwest Music Scene.

“GLASYS, one of the best new acts to emerge out of Portland in quite some time. The brainchild of producer extraordinaire Gil Assayas, Glasys layers gorgeous keyboards on top of poppy, delicate vocals.” – Marissa Abruzzini, Tour Worthy.

Forthcoming shows:
July 27: Jack London Revue, Portland OR
August 2nd: Sunset Tavern, Seattle WA
August 10th: Hotel Cafe, Los Angeles CA
August 13th: Hotel Utah Saloon, San Francisco CA

Potter's Daughter to Release New Single “Blood and Water” Featuring Renaissance Legend Annie Haslam on August 8th

Potter's Daughter & Annie Haslam - Blood and Water Cover

Potter’s Daughter & Annie Haslam – Blood and Water

Dyanne Potter Voegtlin and Annie Haslam

Dyanne Potter Voegtlin and Annie Haslam

The single will be available digitally, CD single and limited edition 7-inch vinyl.

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, July 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Potter's Daughter will be releasing their new single “Blood and Water” featuring legendary Renaissance vocalist Annie Haslam on August 8, 2019! The single will be available digitally, CD single and limited edition 7-inch vinyl!

Potter's Daughter was formed in New York City while Dyanne Potter Voegtlin was studying classical piano performance at the Manhattan School of Music. A pupil of Robert Goldsand and Mike Longo, Dyanne searched for the marriage of classical theory and virtuosity with the freedom and innovation of jazz both in study and performance. Together with a rotating group of masters from many schools of music, Dyanne performed regularly in New York City, as well as in north-eastern Pennsylvania.

Now, joining forces with long-time friend, Amit Chatterjee, (producer, arranger, and guitarist), and Ian C. Voegtlin (composer, guitarist, and saxophonist), they are looking forward to releasing their first single, “Blood and Water,” featuring guest artist Annie Haslam. This single marks the beginning of the band's evolution from the acoustic and eclectic sound of their debut album, “The Blind Side.” Embracing more elements of fusion and progressive rock, Potter's Daughter's “New Prog” philosophy creates a listening experience of complex melodic composition, emotional vocal leads and harmonies, and searing solos.

Says Dyanne, “Annie Haslam is not just the #1 female legend in Prog, she is also an exceptionally warm-hearted and generous woman. Her natural musicality shines through every note she so beautifully and expressively sings. It has been both an honor and a pleasure working with her.”

“On first hearing of 'Blood and Water' I was struck by its unusual and haunting melody and Dyanne's exquisite voice. To be a part of it was truly a wonderful experience.” – Annie Haslam

All of us at SM1 Music Group / Sony Music are looking forward to working with Blythe Baines. She has blown us all away with her amazing voice.

I am so honored to work with Blythe Baines. I have been wanting to work with her since I first heard her song "White Rabbit". I think "White Rabbit" is going to become a major hit single for Blythe.”

— Glenn Maginnis

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, July 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Blythe Baines just released her new single “White Rabbit” feat. Snoop Dogg through SM1 Music Group/ Sony Music. The song features Blythe’s trademark smooth and sensual voice, contrasted by Snoop Dogg’s classic flow in the verses. Blythe is a Los Angeles based Pop/RnB artist that
combines elements of spirituality as well as the everyday
human experience into her music to create an eclectic
and hip-hop influenced musical blend. Elements of her work
have been compared to acts such as Lana Del Rey, Marina
and the Diamonds, and Lorde.

Blythe grew up listening to classic
rock musicians like Tom Petty, The Beatles, Radiohead, and Nirvana,
which contributed to her dark and mystical sound. Despite her long
journey in deciding to go full time into music, she has managed to gain
over one million streams on Spotify since her first release in 2017.

Born in San Francisco to an Indian father and a mother from the
Southern United States, Blythe spent the early years of her life
performing in the San Francisco Girls Chorus and skating
on the San Francisco synchronized ice skating team. In 2007,
she started independent study and left the country to live in Buenos
Aires, Argentina. Upon return to the U.S., Blythe moved to Los Angeles
and began singing hooks on songs that her rapper friends would make,
before ultimately deciding to pursue music. In the later half of 2017,
Blythe got her first single “Stars” played on multiple radio stations and
then began work on her EP with producer Carter Soso.

Today, Blythe is in the middle of releasing singles from her upcoming EP
The Truth, and she continues to write, record, and play music in the Los
Angeles area. The Truth is Blythe Baines’s second EP. Her first EP, Games,
was released through Universal Music Group and appealed to people
all over the world, with her music video for “Spoiled” playing on MTV in
multiple countries. The Truth, released under the SM1 Music Group/Sony Music label, builds on her earlier popularity, showcasing a new layer of confidence perfectly suited for
this artist on the rise. With a dark and mysterious appeal, Blythe Baines is creating
eclectic music that appeals to a wide range of listeners around the world.

CPA Alan Honig Makes Landmark Contributions to Film, Theatre, and Music

Alan Honig

NEW YORK CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, July 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Certified Public Accountant Alan Honig has spent decades helping major representatives in the film, theatre, and music industries take hold of their finances and protect their earnings. Across a career spanning fifty years, Honig has made major contributions to the entertainment industries by serving as dedicated counsel and accountant.

Alan Honig began his career by attending the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce for four years where he graduated with a B.S. in Economics in 1960. When he was 20 years old, he studied at Cornell Law School for a short time and then attended classes at NYU Law School for over a year. It was in these various institutions that Honig learned skill and passion for accounting that he would build a worthy career on in the years to come.

In 1965, five years after graduating from Wharton, Alan Honig received his CPA license in the State of New York and became a member of the NYS CPA Society. He also served on the Tax Committee and the Entertainment and Sports Committee where he began donating his time to helping leaders in entertainment manage their funds.

“I have been involved in the accounting of over 100 Broadway theatrical productions and have represented producers, company managers, authors, directors, composers and lyricists as their accountant and advisor,” says Alan Honig.

Working with Broadway productions, he was able to help keep finances running smoothing and licensing in order so there were no hindrances for performances. Today, he continues to license foreign productions of Broadway shows to share their magic and appeal with the world.

One of Alan Honig’s most notable connections is to Man of La Mancha, the revolutionary stage production that follows the adventures of literary giant Don Quixote. The show received a Tony Award in 1965 and has been syndicated in international theaters ever since. Honig represents some of the rights owners of the production Man of la Mancha and also the most famous, iconic song, “Impossible Dream,” which has been used in a range of shows, movies, and commercials. It was even featured in a recent award-winning Honda advertisement.

Besides Broadway, Alan Honig has also purchased two song catalogs and sold many others including song publishing interests owned by Johnny Mathis and composer Burt Bacharach. Additionally, he’s handled catalogs from many songwriters of the 60's and 70’s, a Sceptre Record catalog of R&B songs, written by Ashford Simpson as well the songs “Lets Go Get Stoned” and “I Do Not Need a Doctor” by Ray Charles.

Alan Honig also served as the Treasurer of a public company (Nasdaq), which owned a chain of 60 motion picture theaters at the time and had their own concession and candy company. He also worked together with the management of a radio station in New Hampshire and worked as the accountant with creators of jingles and music for some of the most well-known commercials.

In his own way, Honig has contributed greatly to the entertainment industry and proves to be a major accounting force in film, theatre, and music.
