Quote of the Day:

Getting a parking spot at the mall during the holidays feels like The Hunger Games. Luckily, the odds were in my favor tonight.

So what does a group like Hollywood Ending do the day after their Super Awesome Holiday Extravaganza Show? Head to the studio and work on new tunes. Love it!

Yesterday, the cast of Jersey Boys (f. Drew Seeley) made an appearance on Breakfast Television in Canada to promote their upcoming shows in Toronto. Catch a replay of their performance of Beggin’ on BTToronto.ca. Then, head on over to  JerseyBoysInfo.com to see if their coming to a town near you. Seriously!

The Band Perry has unveiled the new video for their Grammy-nominated rendition of Gentle On My Mind, their current single and the lead track from the soundtrack to the James Keach-directed documentary Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me. (Where can I pick up one of those vintage Petra t-shirts featured in the intro?)

Singer/songwriter Spencer Sutherland has announced that he will be releasing his brand new acoustic EP, Unveiled, on January 13th. The first single from the new EP will be Nothing Can Hurt Me, a percussive and sunny ode to the girl with the singular power to make or break a boy’s heart. Nothing Can Hurt Me was co-written by Spencer and Grammy nominated Swedish producer, composer, and writer Andreas Carlsson, who has worked with popular artists including Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Celine Dion, ‘N Sync, Carrie Underwood, Jesse McCartney, and others.

All Access Music Group is reporting that WDYZ in Orlando, FL will be sold to Salem Communications for $1.3 million. Looks like they’ve already started packing.

Quote of the Day:

Who knew Hollywood Ending would be capable of waking up at 4:30am for a flight?

Cameron Byrd
Hollywood Ending

The Musical Showcase continued last night in Celebration, FL with RD’s Annual Holiday Concert.

Opening the show was Orlando’s own Tayler Buono who was backed by live 4-piece band. She began the set with her summer upbeat single, Lucky In Love. The set continued with a solid performance by the band and some great vocals by Tayler with the highlight being her new single, I Like. To close out her set, she performed It’ll Only Get Better from her upcoming EP, due out in January.

While Tayler had a good showing of support from the locals, it was interesting to see she also had fans that had come all the way from Atlanta, GA to see her.

It’ll Only Get Better

Next up it was After Romeo making their second appearance in the Orlando area and it was obvious they brought something different to the stage as it literally rocked to their choreography for Superhuman. They dished up just about everything you’d want from a boyband and as expected Drew Ryan Scott’s vocals were as good as gets… and that TC was so dreamy. The group borrowed a classic boyband routine by bringing up five lucky ladies for A Song About You (can you say Selfie). Fans also got a rare treat by getting to hear their new track Save Me Some Snow from their new EP, We’re Coming Home. It was followed by the ballad Meet Me In My Dreams which was definitely a great exhibition of the groups vocals. After Romeo finished out the show with their first Radio Disney single, Love On Lock.

After the show, Tayler and After Romeo had a meet and greet that gave fans the opportunity to get a photo with them (no autographs). It required wristbands, but they weren’t exactly sticklers at enforcing that as some fans had the opportunity to go through twice.

Overall it was a decent show, but lacked the energy and audience from the previous week. Attendance was down approximately 50 percent. For those keeping record, Peggy Iafrate wins… I told you she would.

To Write Love on Her Arms is taking their annual event, HEAVY AND LIGHT, to Los Angeles and Orlando in January 2015. HEAVY AND LIGHT 2015 is a unique evening of songs, conversation, and hope. For these two shows, there will be intimate acoustic performances by Jon Foreman (of Switchfoot), The Summer Set, Dustin Kensrue (of Thrice), Noah Gunderson (indie-folk singer/songerwriter), Anis Mojgani (spoken word poet), and Sierra Demulder (spoken word poet). Select artists will perform in Los Angeles on January 15 and Orlando on January 31. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit: TWLOHA.com.

Two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank presented her mother, Judy Swank, with the Looking Ahead Parenting Award, now named the Judy & Hilary Swank Parenting Award.

Academy Award nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld made a surprise appearance and awarded the first-ever Looking Ahead Community Service Award to two people who have made a tremendous difference in the lives of several thousand professional young performers in Hollywood over the past decade through their service to the Looking Ahead program: Looking Ahead Advisory Committee Co-Chairs Sharon Lieblein and Fred Savage.

Tia Mowry (Instant Mom) and Tamera Mowry (The Real) received the Looking Ahead Education Award from their Sister Sister co-star, Emmy award winning actress Jackée Harry.

Elizabeth McLaughlin (Chair, SAG-AFTRA’s Young Performers Committee) accepted the Looking Ahead Social Awareness Award on behalf of Max Burkholder (Parenthood), who was unable to attend due to his production schedule but thanked the audience via a very special taped message.

Academy Award winner Margaret O’Brien received the Shirley Temple Award from her longtime friend and Meet Me In St. Louis co-star June Lockhart.
