SUMMIT to the world. This is a pivotal moment in history and we are bringing together the best minds in entertainment, political
activism and business
to share their experiences, educate and motivate our community."
How The Blues Transformed
Where pain and loss reside, there is blues music. Although blues music could trace as far back as any amount of lamentations
over the years, its seeds were sown in the deep south. According to Musical U
, "The genre originated
during the pre-Civil War era in the southern United States", sung from the oppression and pain in slavery. The raw emotions
would grow up in the Mississippi Delta and began to be recorded for wider consumption. The sounds were rural and country,
loaded with twangy guitars, wispy harmonica runs, and a simple tempo to display anything from love and religion to economical
turmoil and racial injustice. At its core, it is a genre of heartbreak and crushing reality but also very familiar to the
human experience where it can almost become reminiscent of home to Southern folks, especially Black southerners. As it spread
across the nation and new genres emerged from blues, its fingerprints are all over much of the music we adore today like R&B
and rock. Now, though, we see it prominently displayed in the biggest genre in all of music, hip-hop.
Similar to blues icons like B.B King, Robert Johnson, T-Bone Walker, and Muddy Waters, hip-hop is a genre birthed from
Black people. It would detail the livelihood and gives a glimpse to what every day looks like from its sound. Initially, hip-hop
was a much simpler sound in its inception. However, with time, it has evolved into something much more thoughtful than the
Sugarhill Gang origins. The first example of bluesy rap music that comes to mind is the Geto Boys' "Mind Playing Tricks on
Me", one of the most depressing, anxiety-filled songs in music history.

Alicia Keys Launching $1 Billion Fund To Support Black-Owned Businesses
Grammy award-winning songstress Alicia Keys
has launched a $1 billion endowment to support
Black businesses and communities. The NFL will be among the first to contribute to the organization.
the fund aims to support Black-owned businesses as the coronavirus pandemic
restricts global economic markets and protests against police brutality have erupted around the country.
Keys said the fund originated from an idea to help evolve protests into tangible action and support for Black communities.
The singer said she hopes to continue to develop the fund over the years, eventually exceeding the initial $1 billion endowment.
Although none of the additional partners beyond the NFL have been announced, the "Underdog" singer intends to create a multi-sector
partner pool for the fund.
"The initial goal of $1 billion is to ensure a substantial commitment," Keys said. "Even with that it does not come close
to closing the economic gap. The next steps are to reach out to different industries to invite them to invest in racial justice
and create a multi-billion dollar endowment across business sectors."
On Thursday, the singer announced the partnership with a performance of "Love Looks Better" to kickoff the NFL's season.

|_Obrigado_ Feat. Henri Don Jeany _ Sam Carroll -
Based out of Little Rock, Arkansas, veteran musician, and professional drummer George Mitchell is on the brink
of releasing his debut single titled Obrigado on April 19th, 2019. Mitchell has an exceptional passion for music and has toured
the world with his instrument of choice, namely, the drums.
Mitchell's debut single, Obrigado, also
features the creative wits of Henri Don Jeany and Sam Carroll. The track has a funky vibe emerging from its prolific melody.
Obrigado begins with a keyboard measure followed by an enchanting guitar riff amid the tune's overtones of jazz and soul.
In certain sections of the track, we find the bass in conversation with the keys and in later sections the guitar. Every instrument's
voice is sharply expressed. George Mitchell does an excellent job in hosting this exotic dialogue of rhythm with a superb
drumming performance. Obrigado is a perfect debut and testimony of George Mitchell's love for the art.

'Frederick 'Toots' Hibbert, a Founding Father of Reggae, Dead at 77
Toots Hibbert, the Grammy-winning Jamaican singer behind seminal reggae tracks like "Pressure Drop" and "54-46", died
Hibbert, born Frederick Nathaniel, was surrounded by family when he died peacefully at hospital in Kingston, Jamaica,
said a statement
put out on his social media channels.
He had been hospitalized with complications from COVID-19 and put in a medically-induced coma earlier this month, reports
the Jamaica Gleaner
, though his family have not revealed the cause of death.
Hibbert was the front-man of Toots and The Maytals, a group that ushered in the roots rocksteady reggae sound that was
borne in Jamaica in the late 60's and quickly went on to captivate music lovers the world over. Hibbert is also credited with
coining the term reggae with the track "Do The Reggae," which he wrote in 1968 with his backing band.
His music was also informed by the R&B and soul music being produced by Black Americans, and his reggae-infused covers
of standards like "I've Got Dreams (To Remember)" and "I Can't Stand The Rain" are celebrated parts of his oeuvre.

curated by Charlamagne, will focus on diverse perspectives.
"Blackness has an immediate, culture shifting effect on everything," said Charlamagne. "Blackness controls the cool.
Blackness is the culture, but Black Voices are not monolithic. The only way to appreciate the diversity of thought and experiences
in Black culture is to build a platform for those voices to be heard. Unapologetically Black experiences, unapologetically

The vision for The Black Effect is to amplify, elevate, and empower emerging and established talent. Our goal is to shift
the narrative from Black creators signing transactional deals, to instead forming legacy partnerships that build generational
wealth while allowing each creative to have an equitable stake in their future. As a long-time partner of iHeart, it's an
honor to make history with them."
"As our country's number one audio company and podcaster, we have both the responsibility and the opportunity to give

Network to life, and we are lucky and honored to be his chosen partner and to continue our successful partnership of over
a decade in this exciting and fast-growing arena."
