Video: Elisa Fiorillo “Share It With You”

Elisa Fiorillo has released "Share It With You" her first video in over 20 years! It is directed by Adrian Soto and styled by Richard Hallmarq.

The video was shot in San Francisco/Sacramento and Sydney! The song "Share It With You" is my original song-produced by Elisa and Jazz Trumpet player Tony Guerrero.

Elisa has been performing in her hometown of Las Vegas recently and creating and performing until she gets the call from Prince & The NPG to go play again-which she hopes will be real soon! Until then- she's enjoying the "Hot Summer" and my family & friends.

The song is available for download at:  http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/elisafiorillo5 and is also available on I Tunes.

We are digging the soulful sound......

Here is a recent performance of Elisa with the David Perrico Big Band called Pop Evolution here in Las Vegas.

Make sure to keep up to date with Elisa at her web site www.elisafiorillo.com

Prince pulled a trifecta at the House of Blues Wednesday night, providing over 8 hours of rock, funk, and soul that entertained, mesmerized, frustrated, and added to Prince's legend as the greatest living live musician of all time.

Prince took the stage after 9 P.M. and the upstairs area had more star power than American Idol that night with Tom Cruise, Katy Holmes, Tony Kanal of No Doubt, Dan Akroyd, Dr. Cornel West, Sanna Hamri,Tavis Smiley, Charlie Sheen, David Spade, Kelis, and later in the night, Bono.

Prince To Appear On “Lopez Tonight” in April

lopeztonight

We got some purple news over the weekend that we wanted to share with y'all.

One of Prince's backup singers, Elisa Fiorillo, posted to Facebook on Sunday that Prince and the band will be appearing on the Lopez Tonight show on TBS sometime in April:

"Sometimes it snows in April, but this time it's gonna he hot up in April when we appear on the George Lopez show! Along with new shows, new songs every night a different night of set lists - things are getting heated with the spring arriving in a funky shade of purple."

Elisa also posted "I love my job I love my job I love my job." We'd love your job too, Elisa. ;)

Before appearing on the Lopez Tonight show, Prince will be playing six concerts in North Carolina and South Carolina from March March 21 - 30. Prince band members Shelby J. and John Blackwell hail from that area so they must be getting a lot of ticket requests about now.

As soon as we get a date for Prince's appearance on the Lopez Tonight Show, we'll let you know! Maybe we'll hear of some other purple activities in the L.A. area around that time? Purple dreamz... - Dr.FB

Prince Talks About Michael Jackson’s Death

In a french interview, Prince talked about Michael Jackson and was asked about his death and how he felt about it.

The  english translation was posted on Prince.org, a Prince fan web site and here is a few quotes;

"When I played in London in 2007, the O ² Arena, I asked the producers what had been the record number of shows played consecutively in their venue. They said six. I said that I wanted to do twenty-one. During two weeks they refused me, nobody had ever played for so long. All concerts were nevertheless sold out. Since then, Michael Jackson showed me that I should go farther."

When asked about performing the Jacksons "Shake Your Body Down To The Ground", Prince added;

"My singer Elisa has the same timbre as Michael when he was young. And a good song is a good song."

Lastly, the question that many people were wanting to know; How did Prince feel about the death of Michael Jackson?

(Prince, obviously reluctant, does not want to dwell on the subject.) "It is always sad to lose someone you loved."

Well, there you have it. What do you think of Prince's comment(s) regarding Michael Jackson?-Dr.FB
