Hologram Michael Jackson [Billboard Awards 2014]

A holographic Michael Jackson performance of ‘Slave to the Rhythm’, a song he originally recorded in 1991.

Who else cried or teared up watching this?? Judging by the audience members, I wasn’t the only one.

Forget the speculation. Forget the he said, she saids.

Michael was (and is) the King of Pop; an innovator, a dreamer, a true talent. He was and still is an inspiration to many young artists and creative minds around the world. I still remember watching his concert DVDs and music videos as a child with my family, feeling so in awe at the theatricality and how genuine and captivating Michael was as a person, artist and performer.

Although a hologram will never be able to truly encompass what he represented and who Michael was, it brought a little bit of that magic back into our hearts. At least into mine.

I hope it inspires you and lights a fire in your heart, as it did mine.

The Aspiring Actress.

Quotespiration # 21: Jennifer Lopez

“Thank you … no one has ever shown me how to dream bigger and aim higher, work harder or love more what I’m doing cause I’m doing it with you. I’m so happy we’re on this journey together. … Lastly, I just wanted to say, all you little ones sitting on the living room floor watching the T.V. right now, just like I used to do when I was back in the Bronx..have faith, dream big, think big and know that anything is possible. You never know where you might end up.”

‘Say Something’ Cover (music video)

Pentatonix’s cover of ‘Say Something’ by A Big Great World featuring Christina Aguilera.

One of my favourite songs at the moment. This is a great cover by a cappella group Pentatonix, who are going on tour in the US and UK soon. I’m always so amazed at other people’s artistic talents and find it so inspiring. Talented group + heartfelt song = megaaaaa inspiration. I hope it makes you feel the same and want to go out there and create something worthwhile and beautiful.

If you don’t already know who Pentatonix are (unlikely), check them out on YouTube!

Lyrics:

Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’ll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I’m still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye

Say something, I’m giving up on you
And I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
And anywhere I would’ve followed you (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Say something, I’m giving up on you

Say something, I’m giving up on you
Say something…
