There are millions of people on the Internet making music by themselves. They focus cameras on their hands as they dance across fretboards, set them further back as they sit behind a drum kit with earbuds in place, stare into their lens as they sing soulfully, with no music playing along.
Ophir Kutiel has spent several months of his life looking for their videos on YouTube. Kutiel is an Israeli musician who found viral internet fame in 2009 when, in a fit of inspiration, he turned off his phone and locked himself in his apartment for two straight months, working on a project he called ThruYOU. Under his stage name, Kutiman, Kutiel released a seven-video YouTube playlist consisting of music he made from unrelated YouTube videos he edited together to make complete songs.
Five years and several million hits later, Kutiman is at it again. On Wednesday morning, the artist released his long gestating follow-up to ThruYOU, and introduced it to the world in a way that’s familiar to those who know his work: through the voices of dozens of people he found on YouTube.
While Liam Neeson has been a United States citizen for the last five years, he hasn’t forgotten his Irish roots. In fact, he’s apparently been exploring the country’s musical history for a project with fellow Irishman Bono.
No matter the project, music has played a core role in each of Harmonix’s games. The latest project from the studio behind Rock Band, Guitar Hero, and Dance Central is no exception—though it may look quite different.
Harmonix unveiled A City Sleeps to coincide with the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, Washington, and at its core, the game sounds familiar to fans of shooters like Ikaruga and arcade classic Defender. Players control the main character, Poe, with one control stick, and aim and fire her weapons with another. But Harmonix’s latest title, complete with an anime-influenced art style, injects the formula with a few fresh twists. READ FULL STORY
Within seconds of the Power’s opening credits, the viewer knows exactly what the series is about. Like 50 Cent’s hit album, it’s largely about how to Get Rich or Die Tryin,’ with gratuitous shots of expensive watches, expansive penthouse apartments, and pricey red-bottomed Louboutin shoes. Well, specifically, Power is about James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Mary Jane alum Omari Hardwick), a big-time New York City drug dealer who opens a hot, high-end nightclub as a front to hide his dirty drug money.

Holler If Ya Hear Me, the Broadway musical based on the music of late rap legend Tupac Shakur, begins previews next week. The show reinterprets a handful of Tupac’s biggest songs, from the sweetly confessional “Dear Mama” to the rousing player’s anthem “I Get Around.” The cast, a healthy mix of Broadway vets and newcomers, have recorded the show’s nearly two dozen songs, and EW is pleased to premiere three of those songs.

Given the SRO crowds that have swarmed Disney’s gorgeous New Amsterdam Theatre since Aladdin‘s Broadway bow in February, it seems a “whole new world” (forgive the pun) has opened up for the beloved 1992 movie’s appeal. One of the most beloved of Disney’s untouchable streak of films in the early 1990s, Aladdin boasts an incredibly memorable score by Alan Menken with lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. EW has landed two early tracks from the upcoming Broadway cast album (which will drop digitally on May 27, and will be available in physical form on June 17). The show, nominated for five Tonys, including Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book (crafted by Chad Beguelin), has carried on the 2013 Pippin tradition of stopping the production with a mid-show standing ovation — in this case, for the rollicking Genie number “Friend Like Me,” essayed with an insane amount of showstopping brio by Tony nominee James Monroe Iglehart.

Looks like fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race took the phrase “You betta work” seriously. They got down to it when responding to Ru’s challenge to submit “Lip-synch for your life”-style videos for the show’s season six runway theme, “Sissy That Walk.”
EW can exclusively premiere the lyric video for the lead single off the reality host’s latest album, Born Naked. It’s a dazzling kaleidoscope of sass, brass, and maybe even a little class. From police officers to high queens, this video has everything. Because, as any Drag Race watcher knows, more is more. READ FULL STORY
Listen to Fantasia and Dule Hill on three tracks of Broadway's 'After Midnight' -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LISTEN
Tony nominations are just around the corner, and one of the titles you can bet will yield a fair amount of ‘em is After Midnight, the marvelously assembled one-act jazz revue now playing on Broadway. Since opening last fall, the musical has remained one of the most acclaimed shows of the season, and remained quite relevant due to a bright cast of rotating guest performers (recent months have seen k.d. lang, Toni Braxton, Babyface, and Vanessa Williams, the latter currently playing through May 11).
