John Legend starring in animated virtual reality series

  John Legend starring in animated virtual reality series John Legend is expanding his resume by executive producing and voicing a character in a new virtual reality series. The All of Me singer will voice the titular character in Rainbow Crow, a series about a bird with an impressive plumage, who is tasked with bringing light back to a cold, dark world. The series is being directed by Eric Darnell. Rainbow Crow, which will reportedly include original music from Legend, was inspired by Lenape Indian folklore and centres on themes including "diversity, self-acceptance and sacrifice." "Rainbow Crow brings storytelling and music together in a way no one else has yet in virtual reality," Legend says. "It's an incredible medium for inspiring a journey of self-discovery and finding your way in times of darkness. In light of what's going on in today's world, it's a message of deep meaning that people from all walks of life can embrace." Kiowa-Caddo tribal elder Randy Edmonds will narrate the series and the first episode will debut at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month (Apr17). In addition to being broadcast using virtual reality technology, the series will also feature interactive elements. Viewers will be able to watch the series on a variety of virtual reality headsets. "A lot of the attraction to the project was being involved with a new technology that's just emerging as a new medium for creative talent," the singer adds.

Sheryl Suzanne Crow was born in Missouri in 1952 to musical parents, her mother being a pianist, her father a trumpet player. ‘It feels like the most focussed records I’ve ever made ,’ she says. Though the new album is her first country release, Crow has definite views on the current health of country

The Soak Up the Sun singer released record Feels Like Home back in 2013, which she wrote and recorded with the help of some of Nashville’s most successful musicians including Brad Paisley and Luke Laird.

It fared well in the charts, coming in at number seven on the Billboard 200 list and debuting third on the Top Country Albums chart, but Sheryl didn’t find the experience entirely rewarding after working long hours to ensure it got played.

“I felt there was good songwriting on the record,” the mother-of-two, who has adopted boys Wyatt, nine, and six-year-old Levi, told the Los Angeles Times. “I had no expectation for the record (in terms of sales), but what I didn’t expect is that (country radio programmers) really don’t play women unless it’s Carrie (Underwood) and Miranda (Lambert).

Sheryl Crow: 'Breast cancer diagnosis was driving force for changing my life'

  Sheryl Crow: 'Breast cancer diagnosis was driving force for changing my life' Sheryl Crow reset her life following her breast cancer diagnosis, insisting the health scare made her re-evaluate how she wanted to live. The All I Wanna Do star was diagnosed in 2006 and underwent a lumpectomy. The 55-year-old has been cancer free for over a decade, but after she beat the disease, she knew it was time to make major life changes. "Being diagnosed with (breast) cancer was a showstopper, for sure," she tells People magazine. "I think it dictated that I re-evaluate my life and set up new guidelines for the way I want to live." One life-changing event Sheryl went through after beating cancer was becoming a mother. She adopted son Wyatt in 2007 and another son, Levi James in 2010. "Adopting my boys - that's just been the biggest everlasting event that has informed everything and really for the better," she says. In 2013, Crow also started to think about how much time she wanted to spend away from her kids, and decided it was time to cut back on touring and studio time. "I didn't want to spend any more nights away from home," she continues. "When you have kids, your priorities definitely change. I really felt consistency is the most important thing." And so she traded her rocking lifestyle for that of a soccer mum, shuttling her children back and forth to school and being home for dinner. But she couldn't completely give up making music and now she's promoting her new album Be Myself, which is due out later this month (Apr17). "That luxury of being able to be creative or inspired at whatever hour of the night I decide to go hang out with friends and drink a beer and write a song, that does not exist anymore," she says. "I recorded an album, but only during their school hours. It was a good feeling to be home every night for dinner.

“The other thing I didn’t expect is how much you have to make yourself available to record promoters and radio programmers. That was something I never had to do before. The amount of nights I spent away from my kids I can’t get back, and I made a promise at the end of it that I’d never do that again.”

Luckily Sheryl, 55, is feeling a lot more confident about her new album Be Myself, which she released on Friday (21Apr17). It marks her ninth record and the latest in a long string of projects she worked on with songwriter and producer Jeff Trott, who she dubs her “musical husband”.

She has the support of her family too while on the road, with her sons even offering advice on stage outfits.

“The kids were like, ‘You’re not going to wear that, are you?’” she said of a recent show in which she wore an old Mickey Mouse T-shirt. “I said, ‘Yeah, it’s comfortable.’ They’re like, ‘You sleep in that, mom - you can’t wear that on stage!’”

Mary J. Blige talks divorce in teaser trailer for new documentary .
Mary J. Blige opens up about her divorce in a teaser clip from her new documentary The Making Of: Strength Of A Woman. The singer has been focused on making new music following her split from husband Martin 'Kendu' Isaacs last year (16), and chose to have the recording process filmed by a camera crew for a documentary. Mary has now released a trailer of the film online, with the video showing the star talking about her heartache. "I'm in the process of helping myself," she says as the camera pans over her numerous awards and bestselling 2005 album The Breakthrough. "It's not something that I wanted to do (getting divorced), but I had no choice. I'm not writing an album preaching to anyone about what they should do. I'm literally trying to heal myself through writing, through singing, through some kind of way of getting it out of my system. "I had to do something other than what I would normally do. I had to get out of my environment, out of my comfort zone, take a long hard look at myself in order to embrace everything that was happening so I can love myself out of the whole thing and that's how this album was originated." She ends the clip by telling her fans that the album is the "real Mary J. Blige". Mary filed for divorce in July (16), after 12 years of marriage. It was recently reported that Mary is claiming her ex falsely claimed business expenses during their marriage and spent that money on his new girlfriend. The 46-year-old releases her thirteenth studio album, Strength of a Woman, on Friday (28Apr17), with the documentary set to air on VH1 on 2 May.
