ARIANA GRANDE GETS BBC MUSIC SPECIAL 0 375

BBC Music announces Ariana Grande At the BBC – a world-exclusive show coming to BBC One in the autumn, presented by Davina McCall.

The multi-award winning, Grammy-nominated American singer, TV and film actress will exclusively perform new material from her recent album Sweetener, as well as some of her biggest hits, accompanied by an all-female orchestra. Recorded live in front of a studio audience next Friday 7 September, the hour-long special will see Ariana talk to Davina about her music, life and career to date.

Davina McCall says: “Since I’ve been asked to do this show… I have been worried that someone is going to call up and tell me they’ve made a mistake and chosen the wrong presenter, because this seems just too good to be true. Ariana Grande is such an incredible talent. She’s very funny and incredibly kind and has achieved so much already in her career!!! I’m really excited about talking to her and, of course, hearing some of her amazing music.”

Jan Younghusband, BBC Music Head of TV Commissioning, says: “We are so delighted to have Ariana back on the BBC, she is an outstanding new talent so loved by audiences in the UK.”

Guy Freeman, Managing Director, Livewire Pictures, says: “Ariana Grande is a standout international artist of her generation and we’re delighted to be working with her to create a bespoke show for BBC One, including some very special orchestral performance moments.”

Ariana – who is currently number 1 in the UK album charts, with her previous album Dangerous Woman also reaching number 1 – will follow Adele At The BBC (which was nominated for Best Entertainment Programme at the Bafta Awards); Michael Bublé At The BBC, Harry Styles At The BBC; Sam Smith At The BBC; and U2 At The BBC.

Ariana last appeared on BBC One when she headlined the One Love concert in Manchester which paid tribute to those that lost their lives and were injured at Manchester Arena where she had just performed.

Ariana Grande At The BBC is a Livewire Pictures production. It is executive produced by Anouk Fontaine; Guy Freeman is Managing Director. The programme was commissioned by Jan Younghusband, Head of Commissioning, Music Television and Charlotte Moore, Director of Content, BBC Television.

VENTRESCA UNVEILS THE VIDEO FOR HER NEW SINGLE “CRAVING” 0 72

Now aged seventeen, Ventresca has long since known that music would be a key part of her life. Having started out as a member of the Canadian Dance Unit, who together won multiple awards, she then decided to stretch her wings and began to experiment with song-writing and exploring her vocal abilities.

With a mini tour of Germany and with a steadily growing fan-base to her name, Ventresca is proving herself to be a real talent with a bright future, and her latest single “Craving,” the video which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere, offers fans a brilliant pop track that blends both funk and disco with powerful lyrics.  

Asked about the video for the single, Ventresca says:

“You’re really gonna get 2 videos in one, and your gonna get to decide what video you want to see. In our video, you’re literally going to enter a dream world. Lets’ put it this way, people are going to be having a lot of cravings for my music.”

EILEEN CAREY PRESENTS THE VIDEO FOR HER BRAND NEW SINGLE “FINALLY” 0 81

There are perhaps few artists around who have become a staple across several genres of music quite like Eileen Carey. The singer-songwriter from Ohio has shared the stage with acts including The Motels, Jefferson Starship and Don Mclean and has been a near permanent feature on the New Music Weekly charts over the past three years.

Carey saw out 2019 by being named the Hot AC/AC Breakthrough artist of the year and now, at the start of this new decade, as someone who is already well established for writing songs so many can relate to, Carey is kicking off 2020 with the release of her single “Finally”, the video for which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere.

Asked about the meaning/story to the song and the creative process to the video, Carey says:

“Strong emotions sometimes cry out for strong language. These lyrics state in the plainest possible way what we feel but may be hesitant to say.

“Finally” is the most unusual music video I have ever released. It came out of my long relationship with producer-director Taner Tumkaya who collaborated with me on most of my recent music videos. Our last music video of “Meet Me Halfway” has had 70,000+ Youtube views. After 8 years in the U.S., he returned to Germany earlier this year, so we had to figure out a way to work. It was meant to be a lyric video initially, but in attempting to make the lyric video more interesting we happened on this stop-action animation. It turned out to be a great experience. It was a case of necessity being the mother of invention,” so to speak.
