— Susan Sarandon, award-winning actress and humanitarian

NEW YORK CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2018 / — Award-winning Actress Susan Sarandon celebrated her birthday with an intimate Italian dinner in her New York home. The ageless beauty, surrounded by 16 family and close friends, dined on authentic Italian cuisine created by Il Palato Italiano's Executive Chef Filippo Sinisgalli, the Italian Chef to the Stars. Sarandon and Sinisgalli first met at a gifting suite in Beverly Hills during Academy Awards season.

According to Chef Sinisgalli, it was love at first bite for Sarandon. "The moment Ms. Sarandon complimented my food, it was my dream to prepare something special for her," said Chef Sinisgalli. "When I heard it was her birthday, the timing was right." Chef Sinisgalli and his brigade of 7 traveled from their headquarters in Bolzano, Italy to New York for the special occasion.

Chef Filippo Sinisgalli and his top notch pastry chefs created an exquisite Italian dessert buffet as a climax to the custom designed five-course dinner. "Ms. Sarandon's birthday cake was a masterpiece made with two different custards in her favorite coffee flavor, topped with maraschino cherries liqueur and handmade beignets," said Chef Sinisgalli.

“Il Palato, thank you for an amazing evening. The food was wonderful and each of the five courses was not only delicious but beautifully plated," said Sarando who recently joined Showtime's crime drama "Ray Donovan" Season 5. "Your staff took over my home completely so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. They couldn’t have been sweeter or more efficient.” Sarandon is a vegetarian.

One of the surprise highlights of Sarandon's birthday celebration was the live performance of native New Yorker and saxophonist Michael Phillips, who toured with musical giants such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Prince. In 1996, Phillips was invited to perform at President Clinton's Inaugural Gala held at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Other milestone events include the 80th birthday celebration for President Nelson Mandela in South Africa and a Superbowl appearance with Wonder.

Clayton Morgan is an Emerging Artist in the November 10th issue of Billboard Magazine.

ABOUT CLAYTON MORGAN: Based in Dallas, TX, Clayton Morgan released his critically acclaimed single, "Taste For Love" back in June. The son of Four Sonics member, Eddie Daniels, Morgan has proven to be one of the most original and talented new artists to come out of the area, this year. Music played a big role in Clayton Morgan's upbringing, both at home and at school. Clayton was regularly part of school musicals, choir groups and drama clubs. Outside of school, he always looked up to his father as his mentor and was also heavily influenced by a wide range of singers, including Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Prince, Madonna and Whitney Houston, to name a few. All of these ingredients combined, have no doubt, been the main contributing factor toward Clayton's unique and authentic vocal style.

The Church of Scientology Choir Performs Music to Uplift and Unite the Community

The Church of Scientology Choir performing at the Scientology Information Center on November 4th. The choir’s next performance at the Information Center will be Christmas caroling on December 1st in Charles Dickens themed attire.

We love music and we love to sing! We’re an all-volunteer church choir and our goal is to perform as often as possible reaching out into the community and lifting spirits”

— Karen Bell, Church of Scientology Choir member

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, November 8, 2018 / — On Sunday Nov. 4th, the Church of Scientology Choir performed a musical showcase at the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater. Guests clapped along to well-known favorites crossing several genres and decades.

The Church of Scientology Choir originated in the United Kingdom in the 1960’s where early Scientologists put the concepts of their religious beliefs to song in celebration of their spiritual advancements. The Clearwater chapter of The Church of Scientology Choir was formed in 1993, in continuation of that tradition.

“We love music and we love to sing! We’re an all-volunteer church choir and our goal is to perform as often as possible reaching out into the community and lifting spirits,” said recording artist and choir member Karen Nelson Bell. “Even though we’re a church choir, tonight isn’t about church music – it’s about uniting the community with a night of favorites from five different decades.”

“Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Information Center said, “In a fitting remark that sums up music, L. Ron Hubbard once said, ‘In music, the hearer can contribute his own motion or emotion. And even if the music is a single drum, if it elicits a contribution of motion or emotion, it is truly art.”

The Choir’s next performance at the Scientology Information Center will be on December 1st between 6-8pm. The Scientology Information Center is open daily from 10 am to 10 pm. For more information about the choir’s next performance please contact Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center at (727) 467-6966 or email

Scientology Information Center:

The Scientology Information Center, located in the century-old Clearwater Building in downtown Clearwater, opened on July 11, 2015, and currently houses a gallery of audiovisual displays with some 400 videos.

The Center offers tours to the broad public and civic leaders; holds concerts, theatrical performances, and receptions for the community; and opens up the use of its conference room to social, civic and non-profit groups.

Russell Horning Gives Students at Elsa Ebeling School a Surprise Performance

Russell Horning Backpack Kid

LAWRENCEVILLE, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, November 8, 2018 / — “Backpack KidRussell Horning, the inventor of the meme-worthy ‘flossing’ dance, gives back to the community through regular involvement. Recently, he surprised kids in a New York elementary school with donations of backpacks and school supplies and gave an instructional stage performance.

The 400 students at Elsa Ebeling School, an elementary school in Brooklyn, NY, were surprised when Russell Horning appeared on the stage of their auditorium. If you aren’t familiar with the name, you’ll likely recognize the wacky, limber dance Horning created. More commonly known as Backpack Kid, Russell Horning is the inventor of “flossing,” and he performed his iconic dance as well as handed out school supplies and backpacks to students of Elsa Ebeling.

Backpack Kid introduced “flossing” to his social media followers a couple of years back, and from there, celebrities started pouring in to express their interest. Horning mentions that a fellow social media icon with hundreds of thousands of followers originally shared one of his dancing videos. Then pop mogul Rihanna gave him a shout out before Katy Perry asked him to join her on the SNL stage for a live performance.

“You get up there and you try to dance your best. But you’re dancing on camera next to Katy Perry. It’s crazy,” he says.

Since then, Backpack Kid has gained national (perhaps even international) fame as other dancers began showing off their new “flossing” moves. Beyond his contributions to viral internet videos, Russell Horning regularly gives back to his community through guest appearances and positive public speaking. Lately, he appeared at a Zumba festival, was featured on Inside Edition, and surprised the elementary students of Elsa Ebeling School with school supplies and an impromptu performance. The backpacks Horning handed out were donated by the Kids in Need Foundation, and the calendar manufacturer Blue Sky also helped with supplies.

Backpack Kid turned the elementary assembly into a pep rally as he handed out backpacks to excited kids from the stage, the kids opening them to find items like notebooks, pencils, folders, and markers for school.

As a relevant viral icon, a supporter of togetherness, and a regular speaker against racism, Backpack Kid is just the role model for today’s kids.

“It feels really good just to show them that people can still be nice and have fun,” Horning says. “And you can show kids how to be happy by dancing with them.”

After all the school supplies had been handed out and the backpacks autographed, Backpack Kid demonstrated his legendary dance on stage before asking the kids to join him. In a time where the media is saturated with doubt, distrust, and conflict between people (especially the youth), Russell Horning uses his fame to spread a little togetherness.

An all-star, intergenerational lineup of producers and musicians who were influenced by Jay Dee have taken sounds from the pack to create 10 loops each, which will be released alongside the pack in a series of more companion packs called “Fantastic Loops.” Soulection’s Monte Booker, the Roots’ Stro Elliot, Mannie Fresh, Young RJ of Slum Village, and more created loops for the series.

How to Make it As a Content Producer with Mohsen Khaial

Mohsen Khaial

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 7, 2018 / — For many people in 2018, the idea of pursuing content production as a career is exciting and potentially prosperous. After all, it’s the era of smartphones and digital devices, and producing content is easier and more abundant than ever before. However, that doesn’t automatically equal success. Due to the saturation of the industry, you’re going to need more than an iPhone and a few free editing apps to create content that sells and gets shared. Mohsen Khaial, a successful content producer with his own agency, Creative Minds Firm, spoke to us about what it takes to become a successful content producer.

Get the skills

“Producing valuable content is about more than just shooting video.” Mohsen Khaial says. “You need an eye for what’s catchy; you need to understand angles and lighting; you need to know how to edit and write.” In short, you need the skills that go along with create content. Anyone and their mother can press play on their video app, but not everyone has the wherewithal to add effective sound to a video to add suspense, or how to use certain lenses to get favourable sun flair. Attending short courses is a great way to learn these skills, or, if you’re more self-motivated, structuring a course yourself on YouTube. As you start learning, you’ll notice your content start to get better straight away.

Have a story to tell

Mohsen Khaial has produced content for some of the biggest names on the market from P Diddy to Rick Ross, and one of his main takeaways from years of doing this work is to always have a story. People enjoy striking visuals, clever words and great shots, but they also love a story. It’s fundamentally built into our nature, and a strong narrative will go a long way to creating powerful content that leaves a lasting impact.

Know how to market yourself

Mohsen Khaial insists that creating great content is only half the battle, the other half is getting it distributed and seen. Knowing how to market yourself in crucial and will help you secure new clients and maintain healthy relationships with existing ones. Leverage social media – it’s your portal that lets you speak directly to consumers. Get other producers to feature your work, and network with like-minded individuals in your field for the most powerful impact possible.
