NBC joins forces with One Direction for One Direction: The TV Special, a primetime musical event set for Tuesday, December 23rd at 7pm CST.
One Direction’s first U.S. network special will offer a rare inside look at the wildly popular band through a combination of documentary material, comical stunts and musical performances. The special features exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the South American leg of their 2014 Where We Are Tour and follows the band as they recorded their new #1 album, Four, on the road. Viewers will also experience One Direction’s music as they stage a special intimate concert for lucky fans at Universal Orlando Resort, where the band performs a selection of songs from Four as well as some of the biggest hits off their three previous albums. The hour-long telecast also finds the boys giving unsuspecting fans the shock of their lives by introducing themselves in disguise at the theme parks, as well as the bandmates interviewing each other aboard a high-speed roller coaster.
Hollywood Ending got some nice press in the Daily Star UK. It included a mention of their new release and some great quotes from Chris about his brother James.
Actress, singer and songwriter Denyse Tontz is featured in a new Five Question Challenge at Examiner.com. In it she touches on growing up in the industry, the characters she’s portrayed, songwriting, 2015, and some words of advice.
Not only is the Frozen Soundtrack going to finish out 2014 as the #1 selling album, but it’s finishing extremely strong. According to data from last week, it sold over 60,000 copies – up 193 percent from the previous week. Sales for the recently released Frozen: The Songs were up 17 percent as well. Expect strong sales throughout the holidays! (source: HITS Digital Ventures)
