Early in his career, Billy appeared in several successful Broadway shows (MISS SAIGON, GREASE, FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE and SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE) and wrote his own one-man shows GHETTO SUPERSTAR and AT THE CORNER OF BROADWAY AND SOUL. Other plays he has appeared: TOPDOG/UNDERDOG, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR and DREAMGIRLS, and the song cycles MYTHS AND HYMNS and SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD.

Call it life feeding art. Call it truth in advertising. Call it a vintage Francesca moment. It happened as Francesca Battistelli was working on the follow-up to My Paper Heart, one of the most joyful and successful national debuts in recent memory, and it provides a telling glimpse into the mindset that makes her art so powerfully uplifting. It's a dream she has long since fulfilled. Not only did My Paper Heart produce four major hits on the Christian charts—"I'm Letting Go," "Free To Be Me," "It's Your Life" and "Beautiful Beautiful"—but her music spread like wildfire on TV shows including ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, NBC’s The Biggest Loser, FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance, TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8, MTV’s The Hills and the Style Network's Running in Heels, on promos for the movie smash Julie & Julia and on the AOL Music home page, among many others. The release was the biggest-seller for a debut Christian artist in nearly a decade and the longest-running #1 for a female artist in Billboard Christian Album Chart history. It earned Francesca a raft of Dove Award nominations—she picked up the "Female Vocalist of the Year" and "Short Form Video" awards in April 2010—as well as a Grammy nomination en route to selling nearly half a million copies and three-quarters-of-a-million downloads.

Obie Award-winning playwright/performer David Drake chats with Candi & Randy about his return to the New York stage this fall with his critically acclaimed theatrical creation Tawny Heatherton in TAWNY, TELL ME TRUE.
TAWNY, TELL ME TRUE is an evening of songs and stories where Tawny discovers the meaning of the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. Tawny recalls such indelible moments in her globe-trotting journey as her stint as a HEE HAW Honey, her unexpected tryst in Hollywood with Burt and Loni, and Tawny’s ongoing quest to reunite with her long-lost aunt Joey, whom she last saw in the parking lot of the Mohegan Sun Casino. And of course, her abduction by aliens.
“Tawny is an utterly original creation, a free-form madwoman who doesn't do "jokes" but dares to engage her audience on the strength of her rambling mind and tender, broken heart.” -- Armistead Maupin “A subtle, surprising theater piece with music. Drake is funny and affecting, pulling off the impossible feat of creating a blonde character who's terminally superficial and deeply profound at the same time.” -- Michael Musto
TAWNY, TELL ME TRUE runs October 19, 25 & 26 at 7:30pm at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC.
Plus, Drake discusses the 20th anniversary of his landmark theatre piece THE NIGHT LARRY KRAMER KISSED ME, and his current workshops with artists developing their own indelible "one man shows."

Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley will interview Grammy Award Winner: Howard Levy!
Multiple Grammy- Award Winner Howard Levy is an acknowledged master of the diatonic harmonica, a superb pianist, innovative composer, recording artist, bandleader, teacher, producer, and Chicago area resident. His musical travels have taken him all over the geographical world and the musical map. Equally at home in Jazz, Classical music, Rock, Folk, Latin, and World Music, he brings a fresh lyrical approach to whatever he plays. This has made him a favorite with audiences worldwide, and a recording artist sought after by the likes of Kenny Loggins, Dolly Parton, Paquito D’Rivera, Styx, Donald Fagen, and Paul Simon. As a sideman, Howard has appeared on hundreds of CDs and played on many movie soundtracks.
He is perhaps best known for the four CD’s he recorded with Bela Fleck and The Flecktones, a unique band that set the musical world on its ear back in the early 1990’s. He got back together with the band in 2010 and recorded the CD Rocket Science. They toured extensively in 2011-2012, and Howard won a Grammy for Best Instrumental Composition for “Life in Eleven”, which he wrote with Bela Fleck.
Multi Grammy Award Winner Janis Ian won her 2nd Grammy Award in 2013 for her audio book Society's child. This was out of 9 total nominations over the years in 8 categories.
