A couple nights ago folks who attended the Hollywood Palladium received an incredible show from British chart topper Adele. Here is a fan video captured on an iPhone or Andriod (who knows), but you can tell two things,
1. The crowd seems a tad young, who says the youth don’t enjoy good music?
2. Adele no longer needs to perform at her shows, she just needs to be there, have the band play and let the crowd perform.
FYI the screaming does get annoying after awhile.
It seems legendary jazz singer Tony Bennett recorded a duet with late British singer Amy Winehouse which is said to be her ‘final recording’. The song, a remake of a classic jazz record, ‘Body and Soul.’
All proceeds from the single will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation – a children’s charity.
FYI- Kanye “Watch The Throne” West is said to be preparing to remix Winehouse’s classic album ‘Back To Black’ for a September release.
