    Melanie Amaro live MRTR

    in Pop Culture

    Celebrating Over 150 Episodes!


    Hosts: Jamel, Derrick Dwayne and Flash Gotti


    #MyRealTalkRadio interviews Singer/Songwriter & The X Factor USA season 1 Winner: Melanie Amaro.


    The winner of the first season of The X Factor USA, Melanie Amaro drew comparisons to classic R&B divas such as Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. Born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and raised by her grandparents in the British Virgin Islands along with her two brothers and sister, Amaro grew up singing at home as well as at church, weddings, and other occasions, but never entered any talent competitions until her mother encouraged her to try out for The X Factor. Amaro sang Beyoncé's "Listen" for judges Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul (both formerly of American Idol), solo artist and former cat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, and producer L.A. Reid at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida. She was chosen as one of the 32 finalists and sang Michael Jackson's "Will You Be There" for Cowell, who selected her as one of his singers to mentor for the season. When she didn't make the cut for the 16 finalists, Cowell decided he'd made a mistake and she became the show's 17th finalist. Amaro did well during the season, becoming one of the final three singers along with Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik; on the final episode in December 2011, she was named the show's winner, earning $1 million for herself as well as a $4 million contract with Epic Records. She also appeared in a Pepsi commercial with Elton John that aired during Super Bowl XLVI. Amaro's debut album, Truly..., featuring the single "Don't Fail Me Now,"  Melanie is currently in the studio working on a solo album which is set for release in the fall 2014.

    Creating a Spirited Life with Janet Kessenich


    Topic: The Consumer Has a Soul: The Whole Person in the Marketplace


     


    When you shop, do you ever feel like you have to leave your soul at the door?


    The consumer in our culture is traditionally viewed by marketers as a statistic and a demographic to be analyzed and manipulated. But, marketing expert and author Tracy Carlson understands the consumer is a whole person - one with feelings, intuition, integrity, and an artistic sensibility.  


    She's identified what's missing from most marketing campaigns and what creates an approach that respectfully treats the consumer as a whole being. We'll discuss how we, as consumers, can recognize the businesses that are bringing the soul into the marketplace on the broadcast of Creating a Spirited Life: The Consumer Has a Soul: The Whole Person in the Marketplace.


     


    Tracy Carlson is Founder & Principal of Right-Brain Brands. She is a seasoned marketing strategist, speaker and advisor who helps companies develop brands that people care about and that inspire loyalty.  Tracy has led some of America’s best-known brands (Dove, Hellmann’s, Wisk) and consulted to many more (including General Mills, Rubbermaid, and Pepsi), and has extensive experience advising startups and small businesses as well. 


    Tracy’s non-traditional background combines equal parts Wharton MBA and unrepentant Yale humanities geek. This hybrid expertise, integrating human-centered right-brain thinking with left-brain analysis and metrics, forms the basis for her new book What Great Brands Know: Unleash Your Right-Brain Genius to Stand Out and Make Customers Care.

    Fearmongering Corrupts! Drop Evil Communication & #SAVEUS

    in Politics Progressive

    As a man thinketh he is. Constant negative talk of media and politicians spreads and negative talk turns into negative actions outside borders and at home. GOP headed by Boehner broadcast to the world their respect for leaders of other countries and in the same breathe it is made clear they have no respect for President Obama. Surely this political tactic is capable of bringing down our nation. Would it be an act of evil to pay tribute Coca Cola internationally while Pepsi pays your salary? Be not deceived: Evil communication corrupt good manners. America's communication systems shouts fearmongering, from weather, to stocks, to entertainment, to sports, to  all the fake news 24/7. Media is paid well to distribute fear and many people, who lack knowledge accepts what they hear via media as truth. People listen to what media regurgitates and people regurgitate what they just heard. Within little time and effort, regurgitated lies and backbiting takes over conservations and becomes political reality.
