Central Park Concert Halted when Lightning Struck Across the Sky

#WeLoveNYCConcert #livenation #nycvibe

Saturday Night, August 21, 2021 - Central Park, NYC:

NYC VIBE was in front of the main stage when lightning struck across the sky interrupting the legendary Brooklyn native’s Barry Manilow’s performance.

The nearly 60,000 vaccinated concert-goers made their way out of the park to shelter from the rain which came down heavier and more bolts of lightning were see followed by thunder across the Manhattan skyline.

Bruce Springsteen, The Killers, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Patti Smith and Colombian pop star Maluma were all among the artists who were not able to perform because of the storm.

The concert started with the New York Philharmonic setting the optimistic tone with a New York themed set including “Arthur’s Theme - Best That You Can Do.

NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio asked Brooklyn born music legend Clive Davis to book the show’s star-studded lineup, which included opera tenor Andrea Bocelli, rapper LL Cool J and the timeless Carlos Santana. As a celebration of New York City’s comeback, the concert promoted health, safety, and equity.

Jennifer Hudson, the star of the new Aretha Franklin biopic “Respect,” sang Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma” that was — associated with Franklin after she sang it at the 1998 Grammy Awards.

An exciting time was when the rap pioneer LL Cool J joined Busta Rhymes, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, French Montana, Melle Mel and Rev. Run of Run-DMC on stage to wow the crowd.

Rich Little in his NYC Theatrical Debut: “Trial on the Potomac, The Impeachment of Richard Nixon”

Rich Little in his NYC Theatrical Debut: “Trial on the Potomac, The Impeachment of Richard Nixon”

NYC VIBE was invited by master mimic Rich Little to watch rehearsals for his just opened Broadway play: “Trial on the Potomac, The Impeachment of Richard Nixon”

This marks Rich Little’s Broadway debut for this limited run performance

Rich Little has mastered more than 200 voice impressions throughout his career, including U.S. Presidents: John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, both George Bushes, Barack Obama, Donald Trump and is now working on perfecting Joe Biden.

Rich Little has a voice for every administration. Infamous for his skewering of political figures, Little has charmed, amused, intrigued and entertained politicians from here to his native Canada. He entertained at both of Reagan's presidential inaugurations and got to know the Reagans very well during that time. President Reagan used to tell Little, “You do me better than I do.”

The play uncovers real-life findings, newly discovered evidence revealing a conspiracy to destroy the Nixon presidency.

The concept is a powerful one and these are the questions answered in George Bugatti's play-based on the book, “The Real Watergate Scandal,” by Geoff Shepard, a lawyer who worked in the Nixon White House during the Watergate scandal. Like the book that inspired it, the play brings to light Shepard's real-life findings, newly discovered evidence revealing a conspiracy to destroy the Nixon presidency. Bugatti's play, starring the legendary Rich Little in the dramatic role of Nixon, takes these revelations and puts them on trial, with new evidence and documents.

He has spent much of his career researching Watergate issues and is today the foremost authority on behind-the-scenes developments, both at the White House and the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, as the scandal unfolded.

He has written three books, given dozens of lectures, and written dozens of essays. He is technical consultant to this stage play.

As for the audience, they will make up their own minds after hearing and seeing the evidence!

NYC VIBE at the World Premiere of "Lady Boss: The Jackie Collins Story"

June 2021 - West Side, NYC:

There are things you knew, you didn’t and just found out and that was the mind blowing experience the NYC VIBE team just experienced after watching the Jackie Collins Bio-Pic at the Tribeca Film Festival.

NYC VIBE was invited to spend time with Jackie’s two daughters and the film’s director Laurie Fairrie earlier in the day to dive deeper into who Jackie was, her talents, skills, personal life and the impact to this day she has on all of us.

Jackie Collins’ daughters, Rory Green and Tiffany Lerman, joined director Laurie Fairrie prior to the public screening at Pier 76 of Lady Boss: The Jackie Collins Story to share their experience creating the documentary about their late mother, which included reading through her old diaries.

In all, Collins, the younger sister of actress Joan Collins, sold more than half a billion books in over 40 countries, writing 32 novels.

The documentary draws on family photographs, home movies, audio recordings of Collins’ books, and excerpts from Collins’ personal diaries.
The film covers Jackie’s two marriages, including to the “love of her life,” Oscar Lerman, who encouraged Collins to pursue writing right up to the time of passing in 2015 at the age of 77.
This is an NYC VIBE must see!

NYC VIBE on the Red carpet with the Legendary Award Winning Rita Moreno

June 2021, West Side, NYC:
So who has won all four awards - Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & Tony Awards - of course, the magnificent Rita Moreno who NYC VIBE caught up with at the Tribeca Film Festival to debut her documentary “Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It.”

The film takes a closer look at Rita's remarkable career as a multi-talented Puerto Rican actress, the film challenges stifling stereotypes and highlights Rita becoming a role model for women and Latinx people in the industry. NYC VIBE greeted Brian d’arcy James, Tony Plana and Armando Riesco on the red carpet arrival line.

“Just a Girl Who Decided to Go For It” offers an inside look into Moreno’s decades-long career, from growing up in poverty on a farm in Puerto Rico to becoming a Hollywood star. It unveils the lesser-known struggles she faced on the path to stardom, including sexism and abuse in Hollywood, a toxic relationship with Marlon Brando and a period of depression the year before she won an Oscar.

Mariem Pérez Riera-directed documentary presents Moreno’s resilience in the face of adversity as she broke down barriers for Latino representation and forged a path for a new generation of artists.

NYC VIBE TALKS WITH THE OWNER OF THE LEGENDARY JAZZ CLUB BIRDLAND

NYC VIBE was just told the fundraising concert to save the iconic New York jazz club Birdland raised more than $450,000 which assures the club will stay open awaiting word when it can resume performances following NYC COVID rules.

The fundraising efforts were highlighted by a free streaming concert that first aired on January 24 and is available on replay.

The lineup for the event included former President Bill Clinton, legendary music executive Clive Davis, Elvis Costello, Jeff Daniels and Leslie Odom Jr and more.

The jazz club, named after Charlie “Yardbird” Parker, originally opened its doors in 1949 but has struggled under the city’s lockdowns due to COVID-19. After indoor dining was shut down, the club attempted to launch a concert series, Radio Free Birdland, that would stream live from the venue’s stage, but plans were cut short when stricter lockdown mandates were put in place.

Tom D’Angora and his husband, Michael, as well as Tim Guinee, began raising much-needed funds with a GoFundMe that collected more than $200,000 within a week. The concert marked the final push for the producers’ attempts to save the club.

Others who took part in the concert included Matthew Broderick, Ken Burns, Peter Cincotti, Giancarlo Esposito, Diana Krall, Melissa Leo, Norm Lewis, Manhattan Transfer, Wynton Marsalis, Bebe Neuwirth, Mandy Patinkin, John Pizzarelli, Martha Plimpton, Chita Rivera, Randy Rainbow, Mercedes Ruehl, Catherine Russell, Billy Stritch and Veronica Swift.

The “Save Birdland: A Celebration of Music, History and Community” helped bring awareness to the GoFundMe set up to help the club pay off debts incurred over the span of the COVID-19 pandemic.

NYC Vibe Remembers the Great Mary Wilson

NYC VIBE is so sad to learn of the passing of the legendary Mary Wilson on Monday. It was just two years ago at the NYC Big Apple Comic Con that NYC VIBE was exclusively on site for Mary’s 75th birthday celebration.

As a founding and original member of The Supremes, Mary Wilson was a singer, best-selling author, motivational speaker, businesswoman, former U.S. Cultural Ambassador, mother, and grandmother, the legendary entertainer made great strides on her inevitable journey to greatness.

Ms. Wilson changed the face of pop music to become a trendsetter who broke down social, racial, and gender barriers, which all started with the incredible success of their first number one song.

Ms. Wilson used her fame and persona to promote a diversity of humanitarian efforts including ending hunger, raising HIV/AIDS awareness and encouraging world peace. Mary was working on getting a U.S. postage stamp of her fellow bandmate and original Supreme, Florence Ballard who passed away back in 1976.

We enjoyed spending that magical day with you in NYC and will miss you forever!

NYC VIBE was in a quite subdued and empty Times Square today watching the final preps on the 12-foot Waterford Crystal and LED Ball that will count down the end to a nightmare of a year. The two stages were being completed that will host livestreams and live TV programs but no revelers and people in attendance other than the lucky 40 COVID-19 front liners that won a lottery to be on hand.

We asked the New Yorkers that stopped by Times Square today what they wished for in the new year.

NYC VIBE was saddened to learn of the passing of our dear friend Shirley Young who we first met many years ago when she was the Vice President for China Strategic Development at General Motors China - as a key driver in General Motors’ landmark investment in China’s auto industry

As a co-founder of the Committee of 200, Shirley always invited NYC VIBE to cover their many exciting and newsworthy events here in NYC as well as in Beijing.

We often spoke about her passion for arts and cultural exchange between the U.S. and China will long be remembered, and her legacy on Chinese American issues will continue to guide the work at Committee of 100.

We miss you already Shirley!

NY State Lt Governor @kathyhochulny demands Trump rescind
Susan B. Anthony pardon: 'She did nothing wrong'

Susan B. Anthony didn't want to be pardoned, and New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul feels President Donald Trump should respect her wishes.
Trump marked the centennial of women winning the right to vote by making a surprise announcement - pardoning Anthony, a women's rights activist who was a key figure in the suffragist movement.
But Hochul strongly believes that's the wrong decision. NYC VIBE caught up with the fired up Lt Governor at the Monumental Women’s statue unveiling event in New York's Central Park.
Hochul claims that Trump "treated (Anthony) like a criminal" by issuing the pardon. Trump has pardoned 26 people and commuted sentences for 11 others during his presidency. Many of the people granted clemency have personal or political connections to Trump.

Sean Diddy Combs’ son Christian “King” Combs was driving his new Ferrari in Beverly Hills, CA late Tuesday night when an alleged drunk driver speeding in a Tesla smashed into him on Sunset Blvd.

The 22 year old rapper suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

NYC VIBE has interviewed the charismatic and talented oldest son of Diddy many times over the past years - meeting up at the VMAs in NYC and on fashion red carpets.

We are glad he is okay! The car can be replaced!
