Philadelphia Orchestra premiere new song for 9-year-old fashion show | Lifestyle

Michael Gardner taught his 9-year-old Ava daughter to make daily affirmations. Every morning, before school, she hype herself in positive words.

It started a few years ago when Ava had some problems making fun of other kids.

“We got into the car, the music didn’t play, and she started:’I’m beautiful. It’s amazing. I’m smart. I’m going to get the job done today,” Gardner said. “Sometimes she says,’It doesn’t matter what someone says about me. I know myself.’”

That morning’s routine continued during the coronavirus pandemic, where Ava’s school was completely remote. Her own words of encouragement were delivered in the

Lorde Surprise Releases New Song ‘Solar Power’ With Music Video

The wait is over: On Thursday evening, timed with the solar eclipse, Lorde released her new single “Solar Power” with a music video and announced her highly anticipated third album of the same name.

Her first new music since 2017, “Solar Power” is a track co-written and co-produced with Jack Antonoff that sounds tailor-made for lounging on the beach. With its acoustic guitar, bongo drums, and groovy vibes, it bears a resemblance to both George Michael’s “Freedom! ’90” and Antonoff’s production on the St. Vincent album Daddy’s Home, released last month.

Lorde directed the music with Joel Kefali (the

His grandfather, Herman Ackman, wrote a song in 1926 that he sold for $150 on Tin Pan Alley, the old-time New York City hub of publishers who dominated pop music. “Put Your Arms Where They Belong (For They Belong to Me)” turned out to be a hit, with more than 750,000 copies sold.

Anderson Silva: DMX became ‘part of my heart, part of my life’ after using his music as walkout song

There are hundreds of ways to remember Anderson Silva’s greatest fights in the UFC, but one of the most iconic moments happened before he ever set foot in the cage.

Almost every clash the legendary Brazilian had in the octagon was preceded by a signature song that played as he walked out to face his opponents. It’s nearly impossible to forget when the lights dropped and four booming bass hits ricocheted throughout an arena followed by a raspy voice uttering the words “It’s dark and hell is hot.”

Seconds later, DMX kicks in with the chorus for his track No

Former Bears TE Zach Miller releases first country music song “How Ya Like Us Now”

Miller traveled a unique path to the NFL. A quarterback at Nebraska-Omaha, he was immediately converted to tight end after being selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the sixth round of the 2009 draft. His only experience at his new position in college came in the Cactus Bowl, a Division II all-star game.

Miller appeared in 66 games with 33 starts over three seasons with the Jaguars, catching 45 passes for 470 yards and four touchdowns. But he missed the next three years due primarily to injuries.

Miller revitalized his career with the Bears in 2015, catching 34 passes for
