This has been going around the web. If you haven’t seen it, take a look below.
On Saturday, Stephen Gately of Irish boy band Boyzone passed away from natural causes in Majorca, Spain. Stephen made big news in 1999 when he came out as gay to the British tabloid The Sun. He was a pioneer in that sense and possibly paved the way for others in the business to feel more comfortable with the idea of coming out. His coming out helped to dispel the idea that being out could ruin your career in the music business. I admire him for his courage.
Boyzone was recently making a comeback after splitting up so members could pursue solo careers.
I was never a huge fan of this group but I do have a few of their songs in my iTunes collection.
Many students, one shot. Kind of cool.
From the London auditions for X Factor 2009, Danyl Johnson gives an amazing performance.
Head on over to YouTube to check him out. Simon gives him one of the best compliments ever.
Lily Allen tweeted a link to this YouTube music video. I kind of like it, especially the way they worked in Madness’ “Our House”, which is a classic!
Here’s the video for “Our House” by Madness
