A short break then followed before a completely different set from US duo Mirror Speaks The Truth. With a sparse onstage presence featuring only singer Glenda Benevides and guitarist/vocalist Gene Williams the sound is filled out with a variety of tracks and effects to create intriguing, surprising soundscapes for the two to perform over. This meant that the audience were treated to everything from hip-hop beats to autotune (as an effect) vocals while Benevides keeps things moving with gritty, passionate singing. The band prove to be the first of a number of left turns from the ‘Blues & Rock’ template today, a move which speaks well of the organisers wish to be as inclusive as possible, and which will hopefully help future events appeal to a wider audience.

Here is what we are saying about NGU live performances with Glenda Benevides, Gene Williams and Steve Smith (Dirty Vegas): 

The (NGU) “Never Give Up” theme is one that speaks to all of us. It is a moving performance of dynamic music and video that entices audiences to experience and interact with the challenges and triumphs of never giving up. This performance is a unique blend of soulful songs, storytelling, narration, technology, and features a celebrity guest performer. Our guest for this performance is Steve Smith from DIRTY VEGAS. The one and a half hour performance drives our PR, marketing, and transmedia campaign, directly supporting and leading to the future multimillion-dollar staging of the full Broadway production of the “Never Give Up” show. 

NGU Philanthropy: Raising awareness for important local and global causes, inspiring communities, giving back while creating powerful moving entertainment.

On November 27, 2016 I had the honor to be a part of the 85th annual Hollywood Christmas Parade, the largest Christmas celebration in America. This year the star Olivia Newton-John was in the first car as the Grand Marshal.  What a beautiful show it was! I hosted from a stage that announced the parade to over 2,000 people. On stage with me was the award winner director David Bartlett and singer/song writer Glenda Benevides, who gave us a breath-taking performance singing the National Anthem prior to the opening of the parade.
