YouTube Video: Candice Glover’s Performance Of “Cried” Single On Live With Kelly And Michael

Candice Glover is the winner of American Idol 12. She is supposedly going to release an album called “Music Speaks,” but it keeps getting delayed. But for now, she has put out a song called “Cried.” This is the lead single for the upcoming album.

Candice appeared on Live With Kelly and Michael to sing “Cried.” She was on the Tuesday, December 17, 2013 episode.

Glover is pretty much a flop so far in music sales. Unlike Scotty and Phillip, who both went platinum with their singles, Candice crawled her way into the top 10 on iTunes with “I Am Beautiful,” but she then quickly disappeared. That song peaked at #93 on the Billboard Hot 100 and only made #33 on the R&B chart. “Cried” was not listed in the top 1500 on iTunes when I checked. However, some of this does not appear to be Candice’s fault. I mean, Scotty and Phillip have been everywhere. But Candice is almost nowhere to be found. It seems she isn’t getting promoted like the others.

YouTube Video And iTunes Sales And Rankings For Angie Miller – “This Christmas Song” And “O Holy Night”

Angie Miller, the 3rd place finisher in American Idol 12, has released a couple of Christmas songs that are doing pretty well on iTunes. You can also listen to the songs and watch them on YouTube.

1. “This Christmas Song”

As of December 4, 2013, Angie is at #184 on iTunes with this song. That is one of the hotter Christmas songs out right now, especially considering she is getting no real promotion at all. You can see the YouTube video by using the link below.

2. “O Holy Night”

I checked the iTunes rankings for this song on the same date. It was at #264.

The publicly available charts do not list how many sales iTunes downloads are getting. Except with really big hits, it will be hard to get this kind of information. So the exact number of sales for Angie Miller’s Christmas songs will probably not be available soon, if at all.

Here are the links to the videos for these songs:

Angie uploaded a version of “O Holy Night” 11 months ago that she sang with some friends, Carly Moffie and Sophie Israelsohn. You can check that out on YouTube by clicking here.

Principal Paul Morrow was also at the press conference. He believes Marina High School is a place for equity, acceptance, tolerance, and respect.

Cassidy gave some advice to other. She said to be true to yourself and don’t keep your feelings bottled up inside.

CNN And WBIR News Video: Cumberland County, Tennessee: Jacob Bennett Tells Judge He Is Guilty Of Killing Rikki Jacobsen And Teens Domonic Davis, Steve Presley, And John Lajeunesse; Girlfriend Brittany Moser Also Charged

The following CNN crime news video is about a quadruple murder in Cumberland County, Tennessee. It happened when the 4 victims were in a car on a rural road, on Renegade Mountain. A boyfriend and girlfriend are charged in the killings. The suspects are Jacob Bennett, who is 26, and girlfriend Brittany Moser, who is 25. Bennett is the alleged trigger man. But Moser is also accused of murder under the felony-murder rule since the couple allegedly conspired to rob two of the murder victims of some marijuana. This video was added to the CNN website on September 21, 2013. It aired on HLN’s Morning Express.

The victims, who include 3 teenagers, are listed below:

1. Rikki Jacobsen was 22 years old.

2. Domonic Davis was 17 years old.

3. Steve Presley was also 17.

4. John Lajeunesse was 16.

As mentioned above, the alleged motive was a robbery to take marijuana from Jacobsen and Davis. Bennett knew at least one of the people in the car.

A shocking thing occurred in court when Bennett appeared in front of a judge to be arraigned. He told the judge he did not want a lawyer. And he also told the judge he is guilty.

On the flip side, WBIR says that Moser denies robbing or killing anyone. Investigators say she was there. It is not really clear at all yet whether she actually participated or just happened to be there.

CNN Weather News Video: Boulder, Colorado: Mark Changaris Plays Tears For Fears’ “Mad During” While Home Is Flooded

The following CNN weather news video is about Mark Changaris. He was one of the recent flood victims in Boulder County, Colorado. This video was added to the CNN website on September 20, 2013.

Changaris did something a little odd. While his home was being flooded, he sat down at the piano and played the Tears For Fears song, “Mad World.”

In an interview, Mark said “Mad World” is a beautiful song. He said it is sad and uplifting and melancholic at the same time. And that is sort of how he was feeling at the time he sat down and played the tune at his piano. You can see water and mud on the floor of his house and substantial flood damage by playing the clip below.

Changaris said responses he has gotten range from sadness for the losses caused by the Boulder flood to joy at seeing his ability to find something beautiful while enduring this mess.

Changaris has never been classically trained in piano. He just likes playing and has done it for 10 or 15 years.

He is fortunate compared to many flood victims. His home appears to be relatively intact, while others lost everything.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals held that Liking something on Facebook is a form of free speech. This started with a sheriff’s deputy got fired for liking the campaign of a guy who was running against the current sheriff.

Jimmy’s staff members asked people on Hollywood Boulevard if they agree that a Facebook Like is free speech. And these passersby were also asked to explain what the First Amendment is.

The first woman had no clue what the First Amendment is.

The next lady just laughed and said, “We shouldn’t have done this.”

The next guy said it’s for your rights. He didn’t know which ones.

One man thought it included the right to vote “probably.”

Ha. Another guy said he isn’t sure but knows it’s not freedom of speech.
