Tori Kelly, Gregory Porter, Corinne Bailey Rae Draw a Powerful Crowd to Capitol’s Grammy Showcase

2/11/2016 by

Perhaps no moment at tonight’s Capitol Music Group Grammy party encapsulated the raison d’être behind the wall-to-wall industry festivities this week more than Tori Kelly‘s exquisite 3-song solo set. Here, holding court in the middle of Capitol’s legendary Studio A and basking in the 23-year old Grammy nominated singer’s acoustic strums and warm croon, stood the power triumvirate of Capitol Music Group chairman Steve Barnett, Universal Music Group Chief Financial Officer and svp Boyd Muir, and Kelly’s high-profile manager Scooter Braun of SB Projects, a power center reveling in a moment.

This Grammy kick-off event, like many to follow this week, is nothing if not an opportunity for the music business to celebrate their accomplishments, showcase their artists, thank their hardworking staffs, see, be seen. And hear incredible music. Sandwiched between Kelly’s impressive set on this night were two Grammy-winning Capitol stunners: Blue Note’s jazz-soul phenom Gregory Porter, who Blue Note president Don Was called his “favorite artist in the world,” and Corinne Bailey Rae, who debuted fantastic new material, her first in six years.


Capitol’s Studio A, as expected, was chockablock with executives, including recently promoted Harvest Records co-GMs Piero Giramonti and Jacqueline Saturn; CMG COO Michelle Jubelirer and publicity director Ambrosia Healy (who introduced Bailey Rae, with whom she’s worked for over a decade); Capitol executive vice presidents Greg Thompson and Scott Greer; Kate Denton and Vince Quintero, still kvelling over the success of Empire of the Sun‘s Super Bowl synch (which saw “The Dreamer” used in a Honda ad); and publicist Erin Cooney, who spoke enthusiastically about Alabama Shakes’ four Grammy noms.

But the evening was not only for Capitol employees. Also in attendance were KCRW’sMorning Becomes Eclectic DJ Jason Bentley and his producer Rachel Reynolds; former MTV and Viacom president Van Toffler; CAA’s Carole Kinzel; Ellen booker Jonathan Norman; Fender marketing exec B.J. Caretta, who spoke enthusiastically of the guitar company’s new LA offices slated to open in June; and Jason Owen, manager of Kacey Musgraves and Little Big Town.

The event arrived on the heels of Capitol’s Periscope live-stream, a peek at Studio A earlier in the day, and five days before the Feb 15 Grammy Awards, being broadcast live on CBS from L.A.’s Staples Center.

Buzzing: James Corden remixes ‘Drag Me Down’ for One Direction Carpool Karaoke

James Corden remixes ‘Drag Me Down’ for One Direction Carpool Karaoke

James Corden is the gift to One Direction fandom that keeps on giving.

Though the band is officially on hiatus, the Late Late Show host recorded a Carpool Karaoke segment with the boys when they appeared on the show earlier this month. (You know, the time Harry Styles lost a game of Tattoo Roulette and got inked live on television.)

This latest edition of Carpool Karaoke contains a number of gems, including Liam Payne discovering that Louis Tomlinson kept turning his seat heater on (“My ass is on fire!”), the former blaming Styles for stealing his “seatbelt hole,” and Niall Horan saying he’d marry Selena Gomez in a game of Sleep With/Marry/Cruise.

Musically speaking, Corden treated fans to a makeshift music video for “No Control” when he choreographed the boys in coordinating denim jackets to create the ’90s boy band aesthetic they’ve always eschewed. (The track hails from their fourth album, Four, and was made a DIY single when fans aggressively campaigned to get it radio play.) Also, Corden remixed “Drag Me Down” with a rap verse interlude, and impressed his fellow carpoolees with a high note in “Best Song Ever” that rivaled Payne’s own. Check it out above, and see the music video in GIF form below.

Buzzing: See the Force Awakens cast sing an a cappella medley of Star Wars music

With Jimmy Fallon & The Roots. Yes, even Harrison Ford.


What’s better than John Williams’ iconic Star Wars music? John Williams’ iconic Star Wars music sung in the style of a cappella by the cast of The Force Awakens with help from Jimmy Fallon and The Roots.

Fallon debuted the a cappella video on Wednesday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon mere hours before the first official reviews of Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrive online.

The Tonight Show host has had many of the film’s cast members on as guests over the last few weeks, including Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Adam Driver. Those stars appear in the a cappella video, as do fellow Force Awakens cast members Oscar Isaac, Gwendoline Christie, Carrie Fisher, and even Chewbacca.

Watch the medley of Williams’ score – including the main Star Wars theme and the “Imperial March” – in the video below.
