Since our launch in 2008, we’ve been amazed by the outpouring of generosity and hope from the ever-growing SU2C community. You’ve shared your stories. You’ve launched stars in honor of loved ones. You’ve sent letters to Congress. You’ve spread the word to friends and family. You joined us for our second, commercial-free telecast on September 10, 2010 and, most importantly, pledged over $80 million to accelerate ground-breaking research and bring new treatments to patients as quickly as possible.

We’ve all come together — from patients to clinicians, from advocates to lawmakers, from children to teenagers to parents and parents of parents — in support of one cause: finding a cure for cancer. We can’t thank you enough for making Stand Up To Cancer what it is today. This is where the end of cancer begins

Javier Colon 2011 Winner of “The Voice” at GBK Gifting Suite for the AMAs

Javier Colon Talks to Us About His New Album and What Causes He Supports

Javier Colon talks about his newly released album Come Though for You and about his support of cancer awareness and research.

Javier Colon fresh off his video shoot spoke with me at the GBK Gifting Suites at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.
Javier was recently the winner of the new hit show “The Voice“, which I really loved watching. In my mind Javier was the easy winner.
I also took a minute to check out the new album and it is really good. One person on iTunes commented, it is not for everybody and I agree. It is for great music lovers. If you are not one, then you can forget this gem.
OK, Here’s The Truth (Pun Intended), I liked all the songs. Not often I can say that.
All the celebrities are rushed through the interviews by their handlers very quickly so I really appreciate that Javier took his time and answered my questions thoroughly and thoughtfully – JW

Javier ColonJavier ColoN

Javier Colon has a lot of heart.

In fact, that heart is precisely why he captivated America as winner of the inaugural season of NBC’s hit television show, The Voice. It’s why he never gave up on his dream of a career in music even in the face of numerous setbacks and what seemed like endless adversity. It’s why every time he writes a song, it strikes a chord. It’s also why when the world hears his forthcoming 2011 debut album, Come Through For You, on Universal Republic Records, they will feel it.

Colon is no stranger to the music business. After touring with The Derek Trucks Band for two years, he released two major label albums via Capital Records—Javier in 2003 and Left of Center in 2006. Both releases illustrated a daring creativity that expanded beyond the confines of pop music, while still retaining an undeniable sense of melody. He already began to stand out as he carved the foundation for his self-dubbed, “acoustic soul” style.

Colon eventually split with Capitol and released The Truth – Acoustic EP on his own label, Javier Colon Music, in 2010. After a decade, he’d already experienced the road, dealt with the struggles of trying to excel on a competitive and crowded major label roster, and faced the challenges of promoting his music independently. In a sense, he’d seen it all and could’ve thrown in the towel. He wasn’t going to stop though.

Notified of the chance to audition for The Voice in early 2011, Colon took the opportunity. He’d been fighting for another record deal for five years to no avail and wasn’t sure about what the next step would be. Almost canceling the audition due to other show commitments, he decided to go anyway.

“I’m glad I went because The Voice was the best thing that’s happened up to this point in my career,” smiles Colon. “I really try to put everything I am into my songs and performances. I never expect anything, and winning was a shock. I was one-hundred percent happy that I’d simply gotten to the final four contestants. When Carson Daly announced I was the winner, I was elated and I couldn’t believe it. I’m very thankful.”

Original song and debut single “Stitch By Stitch” not only clenched the top prize on The Voice for Colon, but it also became something of a phenomenon. During the first week of its digital release, the song exceeded sales of 145,000 and peaked at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Colon even performed “Stitch By Stitch” on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno. With its lilting acoustic guitar and Colon’s palpable, powerful delivery, it’s an honest and heartfelt ballad.

“Stitch By Stitch” is only one thread of Colon’s debut. He began writing songs for the record in July 2011, and he dove deep inside himself. The next single, “As Long As We Got Love” featuring Natasha Bedingfield, sees Colon expanding even further as a songwriter. On this irresistible duet, the singers’ voices intertwine in a hypnotic harmony that’s simply unforgettable.

Colon’s been up for it since he first discovered music as a kid growing up in Connecticut. His father was a DJ at a local radio station, so there was always music playing at home. “From an early age, I’d start mimicking the singers I’d hear on the radio,” he recalls. “With encouragement from my mom and a few teachers, I started performing at school. After that, I wanted to be all over anything that had to do with music.”

In addition, Colon writes his own music, constantly keeping himself open to inspiration. A family man, he keeps his wife and daughters close to his heart at all times often writing about them. He continues, “I connect emotionally to the songs I write, especially if they have anything to do with my wife or my little girls. As a result, music can happen at any time. I’ve had instances where I’ll wake up in the middle of the night with two full verses of lyrics that I hardly even have to think about. I hope people connect to that.

“When they get a chance to hear Come Through For You, they’ll undoubtedly connect. Colon isn’t simply following anyone else’s path either; he’s making his own way. “My influences range from James Taylor to James Brown,” Colon adds. “I approach pop from a singer-songwriter’s perspective, and I try to infuse soul into that style.

“With a fresh take on pop, soul, and acoustic music, Javier’s journey starts with the release of Come Through For You. He concludes, “I hope the album takes people on my journey through all of the trials and tribulations we’ve made it through together. It’s definitely important that the songs move people.”

Skylar Grey at GBK Gifting Suite for the AMAs

Skylar Grey Talks to Us About What Causes She Supports

Skylar Grey tells about her tattoo, supporting saving whales and her support of Elton John’s Aids Foundation and Stand Up to Cancer.

I got a minute to talk with Skylar Grey at the GBK Gifting Suites at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.
I so wish I would have had more time. I love Skylar’s music. I first Googled her after hearing the Eminem, Dr Dre tune I Need a Doctor and so wanted to find out who sung that part. Though I like a lot of it, I am not the biggest Hip-Hop or Rap fan, but I did love the singing in that song.
I also love her rendition of I Love The Way You Lie, much better than Rhianna’s. No dis to Rhianna, love her too.
I understand that Eminem did fight for her to sing the vocal on I need a doctor and if you want to hear more great music from Skylar you need to listen to her single Invisible (spelled weird meaning invincible). Sade pronounces her name “Shar-Day” so why not.
Skylar, hopefully I will get another chance to do an interview with more meaning and depth, but I really loved meeting you – JW

Skyler GreySkyler Grey

Skylar Grey, who just signed with Interscope Records, following a production deal with producer/songwriter Alex Da Kid for his Wonderland Music imprint is currently in the studio with Alex Da Kid writing and recording her debut album for Wonderland Music/Interscope Records, for which she intends to release the lead-off single this spring.

Most recently, Grey earned two 2011 Grammy Award nominations including “Song of the Year” for her collaboration to “Love the Way You Lie” and performed “I Need A Doctor” alongside Eminem and Dr. Dre at this year’s GRAMMY Award ceremony.  Initially, Grey made a name for herself as a songwriter with such  high-profile collaborations as “Love The Way You Lie” (Eminem), “I Need A Doctor” (Dr. Dre), “Words I Never Said” (Lupe Fiasco), and “Castle Walls” (T.I.), Grey was also featured as a vocalist on “Love the Way You Lie,” “Doctor,” and “Words.”

“Getting to perform on television with Eminem and Dr. Dre still doesn’t feel real to me and now to perform with Diddy-Dirty Money in the course of a month is unreal,” said Grey.  “I’m really excited about the opportunity to perform on Idol.  It’s incredible to have all of this leading into my album coming this year – I am so fortunate.”

Marion LoGuidice – Song Writer, Singer Leaning Into Fear

marion loguidiceMarion LoGuidice connects with me on Facebook to promote a song she recorded with Cyndi Lauper. I get a ton of stuff so I probably would have deleted it if it were not for the fact that I really like Cyndi. I decided to take a look at Marion’s YouTube video “Mary” and fell in love with the song.

Marion LoGuidice writes words with meaning and puts them to beautiful music. She was recently released a “Mary” a song she wrote and sang in a duo with Cyndi Lauper.  She is working on releasing a new album, but if you ask her what drives her; it is not the music, money or fame, it is her quest not to be ruled by fear. It is about meeting the world on her own terms.

Marion did not really start here music career till she hit her 40’s and almost immediately started recording and singing live. She claims she has quit more times than she can remember, but continues to lean into fear on her path to her most authentic life.

I hooked up with Marion via social media which she is working hard to master. I heard her song Mary, that is the one Cyndi sang on. I loved it and started searching Youtube for more. Her videos are great, but, now that I have gotten the chance to hear the whole album (God’s House), I am blown away. The album is wonderfully produced. It took me on a journey and each song was a new and welcome surprise.

From the heavy beating guitar licks, powerful words and more powerful singing on Mary and the take no prisoners “Sorry”, to the haunting beautiful melodies on “The River” and whimsical piano on “Mr Brown” Marion never stops delivering sincere reality and passion in every note.

Thank you Marion you have been wonderful to get to know and I so appreciate your time and all you have given to make this interview possible. Much love to you and Bernadette. – JW

Marion LoGuidice Singing “Mary” with Cyndi Lauper

Here Newest Video “Daybreak”

Marion Loguidice

The music of Marion LoGuidice delivers poetic lyrics and forceful melodies which explore the intimate world of grief, beauty and forgiveness. Operating at the cross roads of rock, pop and folk, Marion is–“as young as tomorrow, and as old as yesterday.”

Whether one chooses to acknowledge the spiritual world and its cosmic ideals, one cannot deny the power of a greater force; it’s a natural draw to something that’s passionately raw and real, and it’s something unexplainable. It’s the desire to search and grab a hold of the soul survivor within oneself, and having the strength to make sense of what’s in front of you.Singer/songwriter Marion LoGuidice has her finger on this exact pulse — embracing the good while tearing apart the bad for a richer understanding of what fuels our creative being.

“What each song is for me is like another vertebrae in this new backbone that I have been building for myself,” LoGuidice says. “Each time I am moved to write another song, I feel as if I am leaving the topside world that we live in and entering into a sacred place — a place where some kind of healing goes on that isn’t so obvious — for me it feels like God’s house. I believe that healing one’s heart is an inside job, and once you find the right kind of support (people who understand the kind of endurance and strength it takes to heal) you must share the gifts of that journey.”

For LoGuidice, it’s the power of song that gives life to her inner struggles. She examines the loss of certain relationships while also analyzing painful situations bigger than one’s own control, and it’s her poetic approach — an abounding combination of layered choruses, extensive bridges, and vivid emotional imagery — that blossoms into a tangible optimism. Such lyrical narratives carry the lilting beauty of her second album, God’s House.

While her 2003 self-released debut Mother Wheel provided a glimpse into her abundant inquisitiveness, the majestic sanctuary that is God’s House finds the Long Island-bred songstress tapping into her New Yorker sensibility with a warm sensitivity. Her earthy, dramatic vocals are reminiscent of country-folk singer Victoria Williams, while her wild artistic spirit recalls Laura Nyro and Sophie B. Hawkins.

Also this time around, LoGuidice embraced her role as a live performer. Prior to issuing Mother Wheel, she hadn’t performed before a live audience, however with a 2004 appearance at SXSW, and several sold-out performances at the intimate Manhattan showcase Joe’s Pub and additional house concerts under her belt, LoGuidice’s stage presence has flourished.

“My songs are like lamps and when I stand on stage, I plug them in,” she beams. “There’s a certain kind of channeling that I do when I step on stage — I unplug from this world to go into this other dimension, and it comes from a very deep, honest place. I think people are craving that in their life.”

Jody Denberg, Content Manager at KSGR Radio in Austin, Texas has been championing LoGuidice since the start. Denberg says, “Once in a blue moon a CD hits as deep as Marion LoGuidice’s. Let yourself be touched by this music. It is beautiful, emotional, musically unique and positively inspiring.” Cyndi Lauper is such a fan , as depicted in her heart wrenching duet with Marion on a song from her second CD “Gods House” titled “Mary”.

LoGuidice adds, “Most of all, I want my music to be of service to others who feel like they’ve filed away their creative life ,their richer life, or what I call my soul life — into some dark corner. That’s my deepest desire because it brought my life from a place of just surviving to a place of thriving”
