This week’s Music Worth Noting runs the gamut in genres but that’s they way we like it. The Christina Aguilera video should not be missed but take time to watch the other videos, as they are very inspiring.
Micaëla’s Aria – Ailyn Perez
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Ailyn Perez is an emerging star in the opera world. She is also the daughter of Mexican immigrants and the first Latina to win the Richard Tucker Award, according to Women’s Wear Daily. It warms our heart to learn about diversity in the arts so we are especially interested to learn of Perez’s debut at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. She performed a song from “Carmen” for the New York Times.
SOJA – Shadow
SOJA is a Washington, D.C., band that embraces all types of genres including reggae, Latin, hip-hop and more. They believe, according to a band member, that “Our goal as a band is to stick up for the human race. We see the world and we try to make it better in the limited time we have here.” That’s why their partnership with UNICEF makes so much sense. They created a music video about an Ethiopian girl’s struggle with poverty and her quest to get an education. It’s a beautiful video and a wake-up call to those of us that do not know that 15 million girls around the world are never expected to attend school.
This Little Piggy – Christina Aguilera
We always knew Christina Aguilera is talented but after watching her on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, we have a new respect for her. Aguilera and Fallon played a game in which they were randomly assigned a song and had to sing it in a different singer’s style. The first time, Aguilera sang in the style of Cher. The second she sang “This Little Piggy” in the style of Britney Spears and it was hilarious! You must watch this video!
