The Let There Be Light the Anthem written by Yoni Gordon is a song that was written for a purpose and for change.

One version of the song is featured in the theatrical film, also titled Let There Be Light, co-written by Dan Gordon and Sam Sorbo and directed by Kevin Sorbo featuring Dionne Warwick. When Dionne and her Grammy Award-winning producer son, Damon Elliot, heard Let There Be Light, they decided it needed to be an Anthem to help FEEDING AMERICA.

Dionne Warwick saw an opportunity for and her family of Grammy Award-winning friends to come together for one powerful collaboration to help the one in eight Americans face hunger, which includes 13 million children and more than 5 million seniors.

By purchasing Let There Be Light, you will be helping more than you know. As little as one dollar provides at least ten meals to those in need. Your help will truly make a world of difference. Help to feed America while you listen to one of the most powerful music collaborations in recent history.

Let There Be Light features: Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Billy Ray Cyrus, Joe Don Rooney (Rascal Flatts), Mya, Kevin Sorbo, John Elefante (former lead singer of Kansas), Damon Elliott, The Sorbo Family and Yoni Gordon plus mega-composer and Spanish GQ Man of the Year, Lucas Vidal.

Our goal is to shine a light on the epidemic that is plaguing both children and families across America through the message of this inspiring song. Proceeds from the single will go to Feeding America and help provide food to children and families in need.

A night of R&B nostalgia is coming to London's O2 Arena in 2018.

Big names from nineties and noughties Blackstreet, Mýa and Case will perform at The Indigo on March 30.

Blackstreet gained international success with their hit 'No Diggity', which reached the top 10 on the UK singles chart.

It was followed up by 'Don't Leave Me', 'Fix' and 'Take Me There', which featured fellow perform Mýa.

Best known for her solo hit 'Case of the Ex', Grammy winner Mýa featured on tracks including worldwide number one 'Lady Marmalade' and 'Ghetto Superstar'.

Meanwhile Case, who didn't reach the UK charts, will be recognised thanks to his tracks that featured in hit movies Rush Hour, Nutty Professor and The Klumps.

This one-off UK show is a rare chance to see these R&B legends live, find out how to get tickets below.

R&B/Pop Artists That Millennials Love to Love: Your Favorite Artists From The '99 And The 2000s

UPDATE: I was at a BET Music Meeting recently where Mya came in, and by recently, I mean today. Mya told us all about the music she has been making for the past ten years and even showed us an exclusive video of her hot new track with Chicago's very own Tink.

She even had something for her more conservative music listeners, this AMAZING gospel record that will just show you a whole new side of Mya that you will fall in love with!
Curious to hear this track with Tink.

She's taking a poll on her Instagram. Do you want a video for Ready, Part II or some turn up (a new song and video)

Highlights

* Wanted to wear her "It's All About Me" costume for Halloween but saved it for her 20th anniversary. She determined to get her ass into that costume which is why she's hitting the gym heavy lately. 7:30ish Mark

* Love Cardi B and would do a song with her in a heartbeat. Says she's been following Cardi B before she was even on t.v.

* Another song and video is on the way and it has a feature. Hope it's the Tink collaboration. I can do without the Ready remix with Kevin tbh.

!!!!!!!

And if you like and want to try another album. I suggest Fear of Flying. It's filled with BOPS (Case of the Ex, How You Gonna Tell Me, That's Why I Wanna Fight, Ride & Shake, Lie Detector)

I'm still in awe how diverse Moodring was, both lyrically and musically.

Here Are 20 Hip-Hop Songs That Turn 20 In 2018

Pras - "Ghetto Superstar" feat. Mya & ODB

Though Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill were able to fortify their solo legacies outside of The Fugees, Pras Michel also made damage in his own right when he carved the melodious single "Ghetto Superstar" based on Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton's Hot 100 No. 1 duet "Islands In the Stream" (written by the Bee Gees).

With Mya delivering a sugary hook, Pras flexing his lyrical muscles and ODB crashing the party in style, "Ghetto Superstar" became a top 20 record on the Hot 100. It also was later covered by both Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens. - C.L.
