Song 1: Candlelight-Zhavia

This girl has such unique and interesting voice. If you do not know of her, she is from The Four. She didn’t win the show but I think she is already on the right path. At 16 years old she is not someone you wanna mess with. I love this song. There is always some light in a dark situation.

Song 2: Without Me-Halsey

Halsey has definitely made a name for herself in the radio world. Her style is different and the rasp in her voice is beautiful. I could definitely see her singing some rock. This song is really pretty. The power trip someone can hold over you is heartbreaking. She uses some range in the song, just enough to keep you interested. This is total pop beat.

Song 3: Happier-Marshmello Ft. Bastille

The song is actually very sad but the beats makes it a favorite in a dance club. Bastille sounds great and I think they were a great addition to the song. Marshmello is rising in the charts here of late. He is a DJ to watch out for more in the future.

Song 4: I’m A Mess-Bebe Rexha

This song just shows you how normal musicians are. I think everyone can relate to this song because we all go through rough patches in our lives. No one is perfect. Bebe has download (7)such a good voice and she has been non stop on the radio this year. The beat is great in this track and so is the message.

Song 5: Shallow-Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper

I don’t know if it’s just me but I want to see this movie so bad. I love Lady Gaga whens he acts. Lets face it. American Horror Story: Hotel was the best season so far.

They did pretty well together but neither one really stood out to me.

WINNER: Chris Kroeze

There was no steal!

Song: Arms Of An Angel

Their Battle!

Katrina Cane is the artist to watch out for. She is a potential winner for sure! She has great range and is amazing at selling the story.

The Battles:

Team Kelly: Special Guest: Thomas Rhett

SandyRedd VS. Cody Ray

Singing: Cry to Me.

SandyRedd sounded great slowed down. She has great runs, high range, and has a beautiful raspy voice. This is one contestant to look out for. She is super unique.

Cody Ray sang this song a lot softer than his audition. He has a pretty voice and great runs but I worry that he sounds too much like other artist out right now. Ex. Chris Stapleton.

They sounded great together and I honestly think they should be a duo.

WINNER: Cody Ray

*SandyRedd did get picked up my J. Hud.Productions!

Team Blake: Special Guest: Keith Urban

Michael Lee Vs. Joey Green

Singing: Thing Called Love.

Joey Green has a very powerful voice but I fear that he was too laid back. I also had a hard time understanding him in the beginning. He does have a beautiful high range.

Michael Lee sounded so different compared to his original audition. He performed with lots of range and you do not expect that voice to come out of him! He hit a longer note in last night performance and it was spectacular!

They did not appeal to my ears together but apart they are both great singers.

WINNER: Michael Lee

*Unfortunately none of the coaches stole Joey Green.

Team Jennifer: Special Guest: Halsey

Colton Smith Vs. Patrique Fortson

Singing: God Gave Me You

Patrique Fortson has a gorgeous voice. His high registrar is amazing! He stared out super light and pretty in the battle. LOTS OF CONTROL!

Colton Smith had great stage presence and some awesome runs. He does need to get over the nerves.

WINNER: Patrique Fortson

*Colton Smith was stolen by Blake.

 

 

 

Music Playlist & Review

My playlist is always growing and changing. I will post 3 music playlist and review’s a week. Hopefully this will help everyone build up a great new song list:

#1: River-Bishop Briggs (Pop/Rock)

Lyric: Tales of an endless heart                                                               download (3)
Cursed is the fool who’s willing
Can’t change the way we are
One kiss away from killing

Review: This song has some great vocals. Don’t let this little girl fool you. Her voice is one in a million. She starts pretty light in the start with some awesome percussion beats and slowly add’s some high depth into it. By the time the chorus comes around you’ll be hooked! Her higher registrar is what I consider her biggest gift. This tool will continuously push her to the top. So everyone Watch out!

Song: River-Bishop Briggs

 

#2: Never Enough-Loren Allred (Pop/Musical)

Lyric: All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the nightskydownload (4)
Will never be enough
Never be enough
Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it’ll
Never be enough
Never be enough

Review: You have probably already heard this song and don’t even realize it. This made it’s premier on the musical The Greatest Showman. And it’s their biggest selling track. This women has got it all. She starts very soft and light and gradually gains range. Her head voice is just as good as her belting voice. The song uses many instruments from strings to percussion. This is the most played song on my playlist this week and there is definitely a reason!

Song:Never Enough-Loren Allred(LIVE)

 

#3: Devil-Shinedone (Rock/Alternative)

Lyric: Now you pack your bags
The party’s such a drag
And everyone can tell that you’re poisoning the well
But there are no mistakes                    download (5).jpg
Except what you create
You need to know your place

Review: This song is awesome. It’s very easy to see that shine down has one of the best singer’s in the business. Brent Smith has quite the range. This song uses guitar, bass, and drums in this piece. Devil has a great message and the tune will get stuck in your head. If you don’t know who Shinedown is, i suggest you go look up some other songs by them!

Song: Devil-Shinedown

 

#4: Consequences- Camila Cabello

Lyric: Dirty tissues, trust issues
Glasses on the sink, they didn’t fix you
Lonely pillows in a strangers bed
Little voices in my head
Secret keeping, stop the bleedingdownload (6)
Lost a little weight because I wasn’t eating
All the souls that I can’t listen to, to tell the truth

Review: This song is super soft and sweet. Also a good song to reminisce to. We can’t deny that Camila Cabello has a beautiful voice and great taste in lyricism. This song uses stringed instruments and a piano. This could potentially be a very intimate song to perform on stage.

Song: Consequences- Camila Cabello

 

#5: Beautiful Crazy-Luke Combs (Country)

Lyric: Beautiful, crazy, she can’t help but amaze me
The way that she dances, ain’t afraid to take chances Luke_Combs.jpg
And wears her heart on her sleeve
Yeah, she’s crazy but her crazy’s beautiful to me

Review: Luke Combs has definitely stopped in the spot light. This song is gorgeous. You can really feel the love for his women in this. The lyrics are well written and the music fits perfectly. He uses some great range as well.

Song: Beautiful Crazy-Luke Combs

 

If anyone is looking for a good music app I would highly suggest Google Music! Apple Music is also great for iPhone users. They both let you save a music library. Unlimited music for a very good monthly fee. All the artist listed in this review can be found on Google music & Apple music.

Hottest Make-up Looks In Music

Throughout the years many musicians have rocked some make up looks. These are my top 10 favorite looks.

Number 10: Bebe Rexa. She is a global icon and makes some mighty fashion statements. You might have heard her in Meant to be ft. Florida Georgia Line or her newly released track I’m a Mess. She has been all over pop radio this year!

bebe-rexha-announces-all-your-fault-tour-01

I personally love this look on her. The soft sparkles on her inner lid make her eyes look bigger. The faded eyeliner is another great tough to making her eyes pop. Her contour is super light and elegant. Her lips are the perfect color of red for her. Its not too dark and not too light. If you ever wanted to create a makeup look inspired by Bebe Rexa, this would be the one.

Product:Lip Stick

Number 9: Nicki Minaj. Nicki Just had an album come out and it has been buzzing. This women is going to be very busy coming up in 2019. You might know some of her older stuff like Superbass or something new like Barbie Dreams. Regardless, she is one of the biggest rappers in the game right now and she has made quite the empire.

images (1)

This happens to me my favorite look Nicki has ever had. She uses super light tones on her eyes. They match her complexion so well. The lined wings are also great. They bring great shape to her eye. The lips make the eyes the statement piece which is great because the eyes needed to be the highlight of  this makeup look.

Music:Barbie Dreams

Number 8: Miranda lambert. This women is a power house performing songs like Gun Powder and Lead and Mama’s Broken Heart. She has made hits and she has also worn them! Though lately might seem like a rough patch for her, there will be brighter days.

rs_634x1024-180415163609-634.miranda-lambert-close-academy-country-music-awards-2018.ct_.041518

This makeup look seems so effortless. Her natural beauty stands out on this look. Her eyes are very nude and sparkly. The definitely bring out the pretty blue eyes she has. Light contouring is perfect for this minimal look. The lips are a very natural pink and that helps keep this look very neutral and natural.

Music:Gunpowder & Lead

Number 7: Lady GaGa. Not only is she one of the biggest singer/songwriters in the business,  she also a very talented actor! A Star is Born Just came out and I can’t wait to give a review on the movie and music in the movie. If you have never seen Gaga act, you might recognize her music. She has hits like Poker face, Just dance, and Million Reasons.

25-lady-gaga-ahs.w529.h529

This is my all time favorite look on Lady Gaga. She keeps the eyes very natural. I wish I knew what eye lash extensions she is wearing because they are gorgeous! Her lips really make this look pop. They are the stand out point of this look. One thing I love about Gaga is how she always like to keep you surprised!

Product:False Lashes

Number 6: Maria Brink. This women can rock out on stage. She is one of the best female rock vocals I have ever heard. If you have never heard her stuff you should really check her out. Her band has had chart toppers like Adrenilize & Whore.

816132343ef0145bb303e75145fd089c

I love this look on her because it is not the normal. She is known for her dark “creepy” make up looks. She keeps this look natural but makes a point to through some thick wings in the mix. Almost like she doesn’t want us to forget her true look. The nude lips help keep a balance of the natural look she is going for.

Music:Whore

Number 5: Katy Perry. We all know who Katy Perry is. She is one of the craziest, funniest, and most entertaining artist you will ever see. She is known for a lot of radio friendly music like FireworkI Kissed a Girl. Her style influences fashion around the world everyday.

katy-perry-grammys.jpg

I love the simmer she goes for in her eye look. Its very champagne like. The eyelashes are great, not too dramatic. And her lower lashes being lined really bring out her eye shape and color. Her lips are gorgeous. The brown and red color on her lip is flawless. This makeup look comes together very peacefully together. I think her eyes are the staple of this look.

Makeup:Gold Eyeshadow

Number 4: Camila Cabello. This artist is a new up and comer. Though it seems like she skipped straight to the top. Originally she was in the group Fifth Harmony but decided to do some solo work. You have probably heard her catchy song Havana or maybe Crying in the Club. She has quite the voice, along with great fashion.

camila-cabello-holiday-t

This look speaks volumes to me. She stays super nude but the smokey eyeliner really brings out some depth in her eyes. The nude glossy looks great with the matted look of everything else. She has some contouring on her cheeks and that gives her face a great shape. Her cheek bones are flawless.

Makeup:Smudge Brush

Number 3: Carrie Underwood. If you do not know who Carrie Underwood is, you might really be sleeping under a rock. She is not a singer but won the chance to be one on American Idol. She has sung massive hits like Jesus take the Wheel and Toy Guns. She has been a major staple in Country music and I think she will continue to change the industry.

carrie-underwood-876-reuters.jpg

This make up look definitely spells out RED CARPET. Her eyes are flawless. The inner corner is so sparkly and pretty. As the eye moves out they blended perfect matted browns together. Making this smokey eye look very wanted by others. The nude lip lets the eyes take the attention. Light contouring on the cheeks but enough to give her plenty of dimensions

Music:Toy Guns

Number 2: Rhianna. She is one of the biggest pop/R&B artist in this world. She has done a lot throughout her music career. You may have heard her on Umbrella or Love the Way you Lie. Ft. Eminem. She is also a very beautiful girl that rocks the red carpets everytime.

amaizing-barbados-celebrities-red-hair-rihanna-favim-com-278145

This women looks gorgeous in just about anything she is wears. I personally loved her “Red” era. She took on a super natural eye look and used the red lips to highlight other features, like her hair and nails. I suggest this look to anyone that likes to rock red lips. Less is more. Find one look for your face that you would like to highlight. It brings in a little more Drama.

Makeup:Lipstick

Number 1: Demi Lovato. She is a sing/songwriter, actor, and entrepreneur.  One of the worlds biggest superstars. She is known for acting roles like Camp Rock and Glee. She is very open with addiction and Mental health issues. She is most known for her music. You might have heard her hit song Sorry not Sorry or an older hit like Give your Heart a Break. She is a fashion icon too.

8fffd97f648012bf14c37e919fc952ca--demi-lovato-hair-extensions-perfect-hair-color

This is definitely my favorite over all look. Her eyes stay super natural but the lashes give the eyes a pop to them. It still look all natural almost. Her lips are nude and glossy. This brings a slight focus to her lips. Her contour is light and perfect. She makes her jaw and cheeks pop beautifully.

Makeup:Contour Makeup
