March 30th, 1968 – Celine Dion’s birthday

This time I won’t write less known things, as I’ve done until now. I’ve thought to write only about duets in case of Celine Dion and her famous collaborations along her career. Famous duets, some of them are known others are less known, the idea is that they are exceptional. There are a few collaborations I haven’t known until now. “The Prayer”: – a duet with Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban. Both versions are special, but that with Josh Groban has a special sensitivity. “I Belive In You”– duet with Il Divo, the song is recorded on Celine Dion’s album, “On ne cange pas”, and it was selected as the official song of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Germany. “Vois comme c’est beau”– duet with her sister, Claudette Dion, she is also a singer, but less well-known in the world of music. In 1985 the two sisters released a duet of this song

March 25th, 1947 Elton John’s birthday

As I like it, I’m trying to find new and special things about the artists I’m writing about. Some things are familiar to me, some are new. Today it’s about Sir Elton John. In 1979, Elton was the first Western rock star who performed in both countries Israel and USSR. Before using the name Elton, he failed his lead vocalist auditions for King Crimson, they chose Emerson, Lake & Palmer(Greg Lake – founder). He helped Eminem to fight his drug problems; It was unlikely that two opposite personalities to become good friends. They performed together Eminem’s song “Stan” at 2001 Grammy Awards; later on, Eminem recognized that Sir Elton helped him to get off the drug addiction. Eminem admitted to having a problem with prescription drugs and was treated for a near-fatal methadone overdose. As we all know, Elton is famous for his collaborations with many artists. In 1993 he released the album “Duets”; the

30 martie 1968 – s-a nascut Celine Dion

de data asta n-am sa mai scriu lucruri mai putin cunoscute, asa cum am facut in ultimul timp, referindu-ma la cei a caror zi de nastere este. m-am gandit sa ma opresc la duetele si colaborarile pe care le-a avut Celine Dion de-a lungul timpului. duete celebre, unele dintre ele sunt mai cunoscute, altele mai putin cunoscute, colaborari de exceptie, ideea este ca sunt absolut inedite, iar pe unele chiar nu le stiam nici eu 🙂 “The Prayer”: – a fost cantat in duet atat cu Andrea Bocelli, cat si cu Josh Groban. Ambele variante sunt deosebite, le puteti vedea aici si aici, dar cea cu Josh Groban este de o sensibilitate aparte. “I Belive In You” – duet cu Il Divo, piesa care se afla pe albumul lui Celin Dion, “On ne cange pas”, si care a fost aleasa piesa oficiala a Campionatului Mondial de fotbal FIFA 2006, Germania.

25 martie 1947 s-a nascut Elton John

asa cum v-am obisnuit si cum imi place si mie, incerc sa gasesc niste lucruri inedite in legatura cu cei despre care scriu. si eu caut si aflu lucruri noi, unele pe care poate le stiam, unele pe care le aud acum in premiera. azi a venit randul lui Elton John 🙂 In 1979, Elton a devenit primul Western rock star care a performat in amandoua tarile, atat in Israel, cat si in URSS. inainte de a se lansa cu numele de Elton, acesta a fost la o auditie (vocalist) pentru trupa rock King Crimson, dar acestia au ales sa mearga mai departe cu viitorul Emerson, Lake & Palmer (Greg Lake – fondator). l-a ajutat pe Eminem sa se lase de droguri; dupa ce era putin probabil ca cei doi, cu polaritati opuse sa devina prieteni, la Premiile Grammy din 2001, acestia au facut echipa interpretand in duet una dintre

9 octombrie 1940 – s-a nascut John Lennon

nici nu stiu cu ce sa incep. stau si ascult evident John Lennon si nu ma hotarasc ce informatii sa scriu si ce sa las. e intr-adevar o legenda si muzica lui si a The Beatles e ascultata si azi de multa lume. cert e ca, in 1960, a fost unul dintre membrii fondatori ai The Beatles, alaturi de Paul McCartney, George Harrison si Ringo Starr. dar n-am sa ma apuc eu acum sa scriu biografia lui Lennon sau a The Beatles, sunt o multime de site-uri unde gasiti toete informatiile. insa cautand, am gasit doua chestii interesante. una dintre ele este ca in august 2015 a fost lansata “Lennon – The Vinyl Collection”, 8 albume solo remasterizate in dupa casetele originale intr-un studio din Londra si unul din New York. cea de-a doua este ca in Liverpool este “The Beatles Story” (muzeu). chiar mi-ar placea sa reusesc sa ajung
