Alicia Keys and Jay-Z Bring Down the House at the AMA's with Empire State of Mind



This was one of the finer performances of the evening. And, there were many other class acts, including Janet Jackson,Whitney Houston,Kellie Clarkson, etc.

The piano portion was rockin' and  Jay-z's rap was powerfully cool, putting you in "An Empire State of Mind".  (Free download of song by clicking the title link above)Also, a shout out to Ms. Keys for  her valuable work with the  Keep A Child Alive Foundation. See performance from this year's Black Ball featuring  John Mayer in Related Heavier Octaves Podcast Episodes below.

Michael Jckson, Taylor Swift Big Winners at American Music Awards-Michael Was All About Love...



Taylor Swift in accepting of her award, graciously thanks the Jackson family and adds that it is an "unimaginable honor" to even be considered in the same category as the King of Pop. Germaine Jackson during his acceptance on behalf of Michael shared with the viewers that Michael was all about love and he wanted everyone to do well. Michael's memorial service demonstrated that well. It was a beautiful experience of sharing by fellow musicians who came out to pay their tribute to the Pop culture phenom. See John Mayer's guitar tribute below:
