She and I have been friends for many years (since I was in Grade Nine). She is an incredibly talented individual. She’s funny, she can act, she can dance, and boy howdy can she sing!
She also happens to be the only person that I can honestly say is a bigger Michael Jackson fan than I am… so that’s saying a lot.
Anyways, today marks the release of her debut solo EP, Learning to Fight. It’s a fantastic blend of pop, funk, R&B, and soul. It’s absolutely fantastic and I highly suggest you rush out and buy it - be it online, on iTunes (once it’s available), or in a store like HMV.
The track I’ve posted is a live version of my absolute favourite track from the EP. The minute I heard it I knew there was something special about it. This one is going to be a hit, I just know it.
The reason I’ve included a Live version is to not only give you a taste of what the lady is like live (and let me tell you, she’s fantastic!) but also to bring up the fact that this Thursday, October 22nd, she will be throwing a CD release party featuring comedy from Morgan Joy, wordPEOPLE, and most importantly Dana Jean herself. The cost is freeso really there’s no excuse not to come. It’s going to be an amazing night filled with amazing music. Details here.
The new “single” which was just unveiled on the official Michael Jackson page. We’re posting it here as a means of mirroring it incase the Sony site takes a beating due to traffic (which undoubtedly it will).
God Bless you Michael. You are always in our hearts.
I encourage you to spend some time digging around the wikipedia for Exploitation film. It’s a trove of pop cultural delight. For fun, match up each subgenre to its corresponding Tarantino movie as you make your way down the list.
So very, very, very true. At least this means he’s going to run out of subgenres soon and perhaps stop making films.
