American Idols - Amber Holcomb - @AmberNHolcomb @NewRevelationM
We had the opportunity to speak to American Idol contestant Amber Holcomb from Houston, Texas.
Growing up in Houston Life was very simple, but very hot. Since the age of four Amber was singing. When her chance to compete on American Idol came, she was very prepared. She said, “With Idol there was a lot going on at one time. You can be nervous at one point, then once you hit the stage it’s totally different. Although performing in front of the judges makes you even more nervous before performing.
Life since Idol hasn’t changed that much, but she has had to get use to fans wanting to take pictures with her. “I Love my fans, I can say the show has given me a platform further to pursue what I love,” She said.
I learned that Amber was a mom and as a parent myself I wanted to know a few juicy details about how it feels for her being a mom. She admits that being a mom has it’s ups and down, but it’s truly one of the biggest blessings she’s received.
Her daughter motivates her daily. “ I want to provide her with the best I can give her and what better way to do that than doing what I love.”
She’s currently working on her EP in which her first single will be released later this year with the help of Producer James Worthy. Her career goals would be providing great music to the world and to venture to other aspects of entertainment like film, fashion and modeling. She feels as if the sky is the limit. There’s nothing she wouldn’t do within reason.
Her musical inspiration are artists like Mariah Carey, Karen Carpenter and Whitney Houston.
Her dream performance would be Big lights, Big Stage a mic and just herself. There’s no need for theatrics with Amber her vocals are enough. Her dream video would be different parts of the world for each scene. Creating her personal masterpiece.

Day26 - @Day26Official @NewRevelationM
On August 26, 2007, the lives of five young men were changed forever. On that day, they became DAY26. DAY26’s self-titled debut album enter the record books as the biggest-selling debut album from a male R&B group in the 17-year history of SoundScan. The album – which included the hit singles, “Got Me Going” and “Since You Been Gone” – exploded into the #1 spot on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 in its first week of release, while also topping Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart.
As the guys struggled with realizing their dreams amidst breakups, hookups and fights that shook the home they shared with MTB’s Danity Kane and Donnie, their fans have gained unprecedented access to the highs and lows of fame. “It’s definitely a blessing and a curse at the same time,” laughs Brian. “The fans actually get to see who Day26 is as individuals and how we mesh together.” It’s a process that has only strengthened them as a group, and helped evolve the sound on “Forever In A Day”
“Forever In A Day”, the group’s sophomore album gave the guys the opportunity to show the world how they’d grown personally and artistically. “Forever In A Day”, included the hit single, “Imma Put It On Her (Feat. Yung Joc & Diddy)” – and soared into Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart at #1, while also landing at #2 on the comprehensive Billboard 200 with First week sales in excess of 113,000. Shortly after the touring and promoting of the “Forever In A Day” album, Day26 decided to took a group hectic and embark on solo endeavors.

Our Interview with @TuggMcGuire and @Dinero_El_Verde
We were given the opportunity to speak with R&B and Hiphop recording artist and CEOs of ‘Up 4 Grabs Music Group’ based out of Columbus Georgia EeWee and Tugg Mcguire.
When it comes to their music EeWee is always interested in collaborating with someone from a different genre to show his versatility while, Tugg is interested as long as the budget is right.
Their musical influences are artist like Biggie, UGK, 2Pac, 8-ball, MUG, Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs N Harmony and Outkast. All artist who were true to hip hop in the 90’s and those that are still active in the industry keep to that same level of intensity when it comes to their music.
Currently both of their favorite song to listen to that will lift their mood would be the hit single by Pharrell that’s been making it’s way around the world entitled ‘Happy’.
We asked if they could perform with anyone who would it be? EeeWee said, “I would have to say Yo Gotti. I know we’d be able to have a great performance and keep the crowd on their toes.” Tugg said, “I would have to go with Andre 3000 for the same reason. When you can collaborate with someone on the same level musically you know the performance will be amazing as well.”
When we talk about their dream performances they both have different visions. Tugg said, “ My dream performance would have to be a sold out crowd in Madison Square Garden.” EeeWee said, “ My dream performance would be going international in another country, like Paris, Europe, etc.”
I asked them both if they could direct their own music video from a son on their most recent project which song would it be and what would you do?
EeWee said, “ I would use my record ‘I had a Dream’ it would be one huge race scene like in the Fast and Furious Movies, but we’d be driving Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s and Bugatti’s.”
Tugg said, “ I would use my record ‘Diggin’ and I would have Chili from TLC guest start in the video.”
When it comes to celebrity crushes they both have their eyes on Alicia keys, but for Eewee he said, “ Maegan Good is a great choice also.”
When it comes to it every artist has that one person that has passed away who they would have loved the opportunity to perform with and these two guys are no different. Tugg said, “ If I could I would perform with Michael Jackson. If you had the opportunity to perform with Michael you know you’ve made it.” EeWee said,” I would have to choose Nate Dogg. His style was so unique during that time and he was hip hop at it’s finest.”
We asked would you rather perform in front of 10,000 screaming fans or have an intimate 30 person show and Eewee said, “ All 10,030 people. Would get the performance of a lifetime.” Tugg said, “ I would do both. There’s nothing like having a packed out show, but being able to relax and still have a fun vibe in the room.”
Eewee’s favorite record that he has out now is ‘I Had a Dream’ and Tugg’s favorite record out is “Makeveli”.
They’re currently working on separate projects Ewee’s ‘Treehouse will be available 9/11/14 and Tugg’s ‘Show Me The Money Too’ will be available 7/1/14 make sure you guys check that out!
