A Pastor Releases New Song “Peddlers of Fear”

A Pastor Releases New Song “Peddlers of Fear” – Song written by a pastor and grandfather of three, who he calls “grandpa’s girls”  As he was recently watching them for an afternoon. When he got home he turned on the news. He was struck by the contrast between their joy, live in the moment, innocence and the fear-mongering in our current culture reflected in the news. In time, of course, the pastor knew his grand-daughters would grow and change. But he’s worried how their development might be effected if such a cultural climate of fear persisted. Other questions began to

There is no denying the awe-inspiring quality and

DANiiVORY: “Forever” featuring DIAMOND is warm and captivating

Multi-talented keyboardist and backing vocalist for Cee Lo Green and Beyoncé

DANiiVORY (born Theresa Danielle Flaminio) is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter, most noted her works as keyboardist and backing vocalist for Cee Lo Green in his all-girl backing band, Scarlet Fever, as well as handling keyboards for Beyoncé. DANi has appeared on The Tonight Show with David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, Jools Holland (twice), Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen, Colbert Report, Good Morning America, and Lopez Tonight just to name a few. She has shared London’s Wembley Arena stage with The Foo Fighters, shared festivals bills and stages with Weezer, Sublime, Eminem, Stevie Wonder, Neyo, and Big Boi (from Outkast), and even opened for Prince at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

DANi has also landed gigs as keyboardist and background vocalist for Imagine Dragons and Bridgit Mendler, who she performed and toured with for several months. DANi was principal keyboardist for 2NE1’s (K-Pop girl group sensation) New Evolution World Tour. In December 2012, she played her first show as keyboardist for Beyoncé at the Wynn in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve and continued to perform with Beyoncé in the Superbowl XLVII halftime show which was televised to over 50 million viewers.

DANi’s debut EP ”Forever Yours”, will be released in 2014 along with DANi’s first official music video. DANi is performing around stages local to the Southern California demographic including The Troubadour, Silverlake Lounge, House of Blues, and more.

Following the release of her debut EP, “Forever Yours”, earlier this year, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native has now dropped her latest single “Forever” featuring DIAMOND through the L.A. based Studio City Entertainment Group.

Out of the blocks, DANiiVORY’s instrumental talents, musical arrangements, lyrics and superb vocals shine through on this track. And for someone who wrote their first song at the tender age of seven, I wouldn’t have expected otherwise.

She’s been thrilling audiences for years with her voice and keyboard performances in support of legendary artists, now she blows past her outstanding standards to produce something for herself.  “Forever” featuring DIAMOND showcases evocative lyrics with a mid-tempo, bouncy, proactive beat, and a warm and captivating vocal which is just so beautiful on the ear. It’s hard not to fall into the velvety grooves and deep soulfulness DANi forges on this track.

With the various projects she’s been involved in during the past few years, DANi has certainly been able to carefully cultivate her dulcet, dusky vocals, as well as learning exactly how to select songs that showcase her immense skills.

DANi’s technical range proves to be as sprawling as the emotional landscape covered on this song, while her soothing vocals never turn to screams or voice acrobatics. The lady is too smothered in confidence and coolness to bother with fickle gestures.

In her well-heeled tradition of impeccable performances and fully-ripened blend of contemporary genre-bending grooves, DANiiVORY has delivered again. Something she has been doing since sharing the stage with Marvin Hamlisch, The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and The Mendelssohn Choir by the time she was ten!
