How do you make the supergroup Superheavy’s album even bigger?  Get Shepard Fairey to design the album cover.  The band features Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, Joss Stone, Damien Marley and A.R. Rahman.  I listened to a preview copy a few weeks ago and I didn’t really care for the record.  Production values are great, but I don’t care for Joss Stone’s diva vocals mixed with a rough sounding Mick Jagger to a reggae beat.  I am open to seeing the album performed live, however.  What are your thoughts?  Let us know when the album is officially released on September 20, 2011 – my birthday!  That’s Superheavy!

Once and for all, please honor the purpose of Mandela Day by doing random acts of kindness, no matter how small, as often as you can.  Together, we can make the world a better place.

My series of photos from Mandela Day, a 46664 Celebration, that took place at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on July 18, 2009 has been almost as popular as the event itself.  I am pleased to show you all some worldwide exclusive photos from the grand finale all star jam.

Mandela Day: a time to not only honor the birth of Nelson Mandela, but a chance to make the world a better place by performing random acts of kindness, no matter how small.  Please do your part.

On July 18, 2009 at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, a former supermodel, singer and also the first lady of France, performed with Dave Stewart of Eurythmics at Mandela Day.  Here are some photos of Dave and Carla performing Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In The Wind.”

By looking at these photos, you must promise to honor the purpose of Mandela Day: to make this world a better place by doing random acts of kindness, no matter how small, as often as possible.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, here’s a sample of what you can expect to see in upcoming posts about this historic concert that I just witnessed.  For his 91st birthday, stars from the music world gathered at New York’s Radio City Music Hall to pay tribute to former prisoner number 46664 and world rights activist, Nelson Mandela.  If you like these worldwide exclusive pix, keep checking back  for photos of Whoopi Goldberg, Gloria Gaynor, Jesse McCartney, Will i. Am, Wyclef Jean, Baba Maal, Zucchero and more!
