Music is in Amanda's blood. It has been said that she sang even before she could speak. Her voice could sometimes be heard from the rooftops of Newark, NJ where she would dwell for some months of her infancy with her musical mother & her guitar strumming father. From the age of two, the multi-ethnic (African American, Cherokee Indian, Italian, & Egyptian) Amanda Holley practically lived in the orchestra pit while her mother (graduate of Manhattan School of Music) would play some of the greatest musicals and symphonies ever written on her cello, her estranged father Gregory Holley was a songwriter who wrote for Sarah Vaughan.
As a SINGER and songwriter, she has recently collaborated for her project with Dimitri Ehrlich (over 20Xs platinum), GoldenChyl (multiple-Grammy nominee), … [Continue reading...]

“We need more Ray Korona songs!” We hear this a lot from people struggling to survive the Trump regime. It is striking how many of his songs are more relevant today than ever. “It’s Still the Sixties” for sure. Ray wrote songs about jobs, Social Security, health care, war and the nuclear brink, water, the environment, prisons, homelessness, women’s rights and more. Perhaps what we need most now from Ray’s music is his optimistic vision of the future. His songs encourage us and empower us to fight … [Continue reading...]

Hollywood Reporter shares their story for some of the details of the evening.
Happy Oscar hangover! What a jaw-droppingly surreal night at the Dolby Theatre. As Moonlight took the top honor in a stunning twist, the Academy's Oscar accountants fell on their sword for an enormous ballot flub. Plus: A breakdown of all the winners, parties, gossip, reactions and early ratings. — Matthew Belloni and Erik Hayden.
BIGGEST OSCARS FLUB EVER? Daniel Fienberg writes: Everybody's gonna remember the 2017 Academy Awards. Now will we remember anything other than things going pear-shaped in the end? Will we do anything other than second-guessing who made what mistake and who should have stopped things when?
