David Guetta To Host Second “United At Home” Charity Livestream Event On May 30

Published

on

After the smashing success of United At Home in Miami, which raised more than $750,000 for COVID-19 relief charities and drew more than 25 million viewers, David Guetta will host a live stream performance in New York on May 30th to raise spirits and money for the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, Feeding America, the World Health Organization, and Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris – Hôpitaux de France.

Guetta’s performance will take place at one of New York City’s most iconic locations, to be revealed during his set. United At Home, conceived and co-produced by the Charity Guys, aims to put a smile on the faces of New York and the rest of the world through the power of music.
Guetta’s performance will begin after New York’s “daily clap” for frontline and healthcare workers at 7:00 pm (EST), and can be viewed live on social media through the DJ’s Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, VK and TikTok channels. The stream will feature guest appearances from City First Responders along with other special surprise guests. New Yorkers are encouraged to join Guetta’s global audience and watch this performance safely from home. Moreover, the set can only be enjoyed online; it will not be amplified.
“I’m excited to announce I will host another live stream to raise money for charity and help battle the virus,” says David Guetta. “New York is one of my favorite cities and it’s an honor to be able to do something to help the city during this difficult time. We’re planning something special that can be enjoyed from homes around the world. As a DJ, the crowd is the most important part of any show and even though we can’t be together in a club or at a festival, we can use this time to come together in new ways and help those who need it most.”
“Our city’s healthcare workers are first responders in the fight against coronavirus. As New Yorkers have stepped back and stayed home, our doctors, nurses and hospital staff have stepped forward to work around the clock to save lives,” said First Lady Chirlane McCray. “I thank David Guetta for his partnership to help the city continue to raise funds for PPE and other critical supplies to protect our healthcare heroes during this public health crisis.”
Funds raised by the performance will be donated to the following organizations:
●     The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, chaired by First Lady Chirlane McCray, is NYC’s official fundraising arm for COVID-19 relief and is working every day to support vulnerable populations including frontline health care workers and essential staff, immigrant communities, domestic violence survivors, and others. Guetta’s United At Home initiative will also continue to benefit
●     Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization;
●     Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris – Hôpitaux de France, whose mission is to improve the conditions of healthcare works and patients in hospitals across France; and
●     The World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, which is ensuring frontline workers are equipped with essential protective wear, patients are receiving proper care, and efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments are accelerated.
On April 18th, David Guetta lit up the blue-turquoise waters of Biscayne Bay of Downtown Miami, playing for 8000 thousand locals who danced on from their balconies. In front of a 205-feet pool at the Icon Brickell in Downtown Miami, the iconic French artist played a 1.5 hours set packed with feel-good music which has now been viewed more than 25 million times (watch, here) and has raised over $750,000 including a $300,000 personal contribution from the DJ. The donation channels remain open for Feeding South Florida, Feeding America, World Health Organization and Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris – Hôpitaux de France and donations are still welcome via davidguetta.com/donate.
The second edition of United At Home will no doubt be another roaring success as Guetta unties the world through music yet again.
Tune in via David Guetta’s socials. Kicking off at 7pm EST

Emeli Sande Releases Self-Produced New Single, ‘Look What You’ve Done’

Published

Emeli Sande

Today, internationally-renowned British singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé has shared her latest single ‘Look What You’ve Done’ via Chrysalis Records. The self-produced garage-inspired track is the second taste of new music from this new chapter of Emeli’s career – an era she describes as a “rebirth” that sees her freeing from the expectations of others by flexing her holistic skills as a songwriter, producer and vocalist in new ways.

“‘Look what you’ve done’ marks a big milestone for me. It’s my first release that I have produced and it feels so good to have my full creative fingerprint on it.” Emeli says, “I first wrote this song in Switzerland, sat at my piano staring out at a gorgeous lake surrounded by beautiful snow tipped mountains. The song is about the complete surrender we experience when falling in love and explores the euphoria which accompanies that loss of control in both mind and body. I hope it makes people fall in love, dream and of course dance!”

‘Look What You’ve Done’ follows on from previous single ‘Family,’ Emeli’s triumphant first taste of new music in two years that she describes as “‘a new beginning on many levels for me. It’s an ode to resilience, rebirth, and renewal.”

‘Look What You’ve Done’ is out everywhere now

Published

on

exas-born, GRAMMY Award-nominated, multi-platinum hip-hop artist and business mogul, Travis Scott has just announced the full music lineup for his third annual Astroworld Festival. In celebration, Scott has also released a very limited number of additional tickets to the event, which are on sale now at AstroworldFest.com.

 

The largest artist-curated music festival in the world, as well as the largest music event in Scott’s hometown of Houston, will return soon to NRG Park on Friday, November 5, and Saturday, November 6. Similar to years past, fans at Astroworld will soon be treated to a festival experience like no other as every detail is an extension of Scott’s personal creativity and unique vision.

 

WEEKEND MUSIC LINEUP

Scott will soon welcome some of the most sought-after names in hip-hop and R&B to perform, alongside a number of critically acclaimed and creative artists that Scott personally hand-picked to join in on the fall festivities.

 

The full music lineup is listed below in A-Z order and available online at AstroworldFest.com:

  • 21 Savage
  • Baby Keem
  • Bad Bunny
  • BIA
  • Chief Keef
  • Don Toliver
  • Earth, Wind & Fire
  • Houston All-Stars
  • Lil Baby
  • Master P
  • Roddy Ricch
  • Sheck Wes
  • Sofaygo
  • SZA
  • Teezo Touchdown
  • Toro Y Moi
  • Travis Scott **
  • Tame Impala
  • Young Thug
  • Yves Tumor

**Denotes festival headliner and founder

 

LIMITED TICKET SALE

To commemorate the lineup news, the festival has also released today a limited number of two-day GA tickets to the 2021 event, which are on sale now at AstroworldFest.com. Prices begin at $349.99, although fans are encouraged to purchase immediately as ticket supply is extremely limited.

 

During the general ticket on-sale last spring, the entire weekend event sold out in under one hour without a music performance lineup attached. Scott’s festival has sold out in advance of the lineup reveal every year since inception, although 2021 set the record for the fastest sell-out yet.

 

FAN EXPERIENCE

Continuing a nod to the NRG’s previous tenant (Six Flags AstroWorld), the festival has again invested significant real estate to build out an amusement park and carnival footprint for the 2021 event.  This year’s fest will feature more than 30 custom carnival games and rides, including a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, and bumper cars – all of which are designed to entertain fans when they need a break from music.

 

Fans participating in the carnival games will have the opportunity to win one of 100+ different custom Astroworld prizes, which include limited-edition items that won’t be available anywhere else.

 

Participating carnival sponsors Raising Cane’s, Nike’s Jordan, and the Houston Astros have all kicked in grand prizes as well. These special prizes include the opportunity to eat free Cane’s for a year, score a pair of limited-edition Jordans, or win tickets to a future baseball game.

 

EVENT BACKGROUND

Over 100,000 fans from across the globe are slated to attend the third-year music festival, which returns to Scott’s hometown of Houston. The 2021 event features an expanded two-day format on Friday, November 5 and Saturday, November 6 due to overwhelming demand from fans.

 

With a new creative theme, “Open Your Eyes To A Whole New Universe”, the critically-acclaimed rapper turned mainstream culture phenom will once again curate and produce his very own larger-than-life multi-stage music festival in his hometown of Houston, while also bringing back the beloved spirit and nostalgia of the legendary and now-defunct amusement park – AstroWorld ­– that Scott visited countless times as a child.

 

During the festival’s last iteration in November 2019, the one-day event played host to over 50,000 fans from across the globe for Scott’s special celebration of hip-hop, pop music, and Houston culture. As Scott himself solely curates and hand-selects the festival’s music lineup, past festival performances have featured some of today’s most sought-after music acts beyond just hip-hop and R&B including Post Malone, Rosalia, Pharrell Williams, Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, and Playboi Carti, among many others.

 

A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the festival’s official charity partner, Cactus Jack Foundation. Founded by Scott, the nonprofit organization seeks to empower and enrich the lives of youth by providing access to education and creative resources to ensure long-term success.
