On tonight’s episode of Glee entitled “Naked” (FOX, Jan 31st 2013), New Directions members close the episode with a celebratory staged performance of “This Is the New Year” by independent pop music duo A Great Big World.  Given the poignancy of the song and the climactic emphasis placed on it (as well as the intense engagement of the Glee viewers), we thought you’d be interested in the song’s origins and the duo behind the soon-to-be hit.

This isn’t the first time an independent artist’s work has been a featured song in an episode of Glee. It is a testament to the respect being shown to a new breed of talent exploring new ways to reach audiences. A Great Big World is excited be introduced to such a wide, diverse and active music-loving audience.

Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino  aka A Great Big World, met while studying music business at NYU. At first, Ian was the artist and Chad shared writing duties while becoming his manager. After gaining a huge viral buzz, their music was featured on One Tree HillMTV, The Amazing RaceESPN, GMA, and even a performance on the Rachael Ray Show.

In 2012, after opening for acts including Ingrid Michaelson, Five For Fighting and Glee star Matthew Morrison, the duo rebranded themselves as A Great Big World, crafting a six-song EP funded on Kickstarter by fans.

A Great Big World’s official video for the track, which served as inspiration for the closing ensemble performance, can be found on the duo’s website here http://agreatbigworld.com/videos

(CelebNMusic247-NewsDonald Trump Threatens to Sue Mac Miller on Twitter

Remember the days when real estate tycoon Donald Trump love Mac Miller for his song “Donald Trump”?

Well those days are over because earlier today Trump  sent a series of legally threatening Tweets towards Pittsburgh rapper regarding  the hit single “Donald Trump,” which has garnered Mac Miller over 75 million views today.

Now that the song is a hit the Don wants his piece of the pie. He is demanding royalties associated with the song for using his name and likeness, Trump referred to Mac Miller as “Little @MacMiller” as he threatened the rap star with a lawsuit.

Can someone yell out GREEDY ASS?

Donald Trump Tweeted:

“Little @MacMiller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog!” 

The threats come shortly after a clip with Mac Miller and Complex Magazine owner Mark Ecko dubbed  Miller Complex’s Man of the Year.

In the interview, Mac Miller and Ecko voiced their displeasure for Donald Trump.

Mac said in the Complex video:

“I think he’s a d**k.”

 “I f**king hate Donald Trump.” 

Mac added:

“When he started running for president I was like, ‘Oh, f**k—this is horrible, I have a fu**ing song with this dude’s name and now he’s being such a douchebag.’” 

Mac’s choice words for Trump were apparently surprising to Donald Trump, after he created a video co-signing the song and saying that Mac was next Eminem.

Mac Miller said in the interview:

“The thing that bothers me the most is that he always says things like, ’75 million views on the song ‘Donald Trump,’ Mac Miller you’re welcome,”

 “I could’ve said, ‘Take over the world when I’m on my Bill Gates s**t.’ It doesn’t matter. That s**t just pisses me off.”

Boondocks’ Aaron McGruder to make Live Action Uncle Ruckus Film

131-Boondocks' Aaron McGruder to make Live Action Uncle Ruckus Film-1

(CelebNMusic247-News) Boondocks’ Aaron McGruder to make Live Action Uncle Ruckus Film

The creator of Boondocks series, Aaron McGruder announced on The Boondocks Facebook page that he has begun planning the production of a live action version centered around the character Uncle Ruckus.

Despite the fact that  fans have been patiently waiting for season four of the animated program to return to Adult Swim instead they may be getting a new full length movie.

Here’s the drop:

Gary Anthony Williams, who provides the voice of  Ruckus for the TV show, will star as the self-hating handyman viewers love to hate in The Uncle Ruckus Movie.

But don’t look for Huey, Riley, Grandpa, or any of the other residents of the fictional Woodcrest to make an appearance in the film. Aaron McGruder is only focusing on exploring a new storyline for Ruckus. The script will take a look at some part of the Ruckus family that hasn’t been revealed on the show yet.

There have been rumors of a live action Boondocks movie since the cartoon version debuted on Adult Swim in 2005, but in a statement McGruder explains why that has not happened until now.

“There’s always been interest in a live-action Boondocks movie, which to me was out of the question considering Huey and Riley are essentially impossible to cast. The animated feature would cost around 20 million, but a live action Uncle Ruckus movie could cost a fraction of that.”

The only hold up for the film going forward now is funding. As of right now there are no corporate sponsors attached to the project, and even though Sony Studios produces the animated series, the company will not be involved in the production of The Uncle Ruckus Movie.

McGruder has decided to take an independent approach by asking for donations via Kickstarter to help him reach his goal of raising $200,000. Backers who pledge various amounts will receive certain awards for their donation. For example, anyone who pledges $1 or more will receive a digital photo of Uncle Ruckus and a free download of an original Ruckus song. If someone is really supportive of the project they can pledge $10,000 or more and see their name credited as a “co-producer” and also appear in the film. As of this morning the site has already raised over $10,000 from 300 backers.
