Sunday Open Thread: Musical Brunch featuring Daniel Caesar, Khalid and Izzy Bizu

Good Sunday Morning POU!

Enjoy your day listening to these three talented up and comers in the R&B world.

Daniel Caesar (born April 5, 1995) is a Canadian R&B and soul singer-songwriter. After independently building an online following through EPs, Caesar released his debut album Freudian in August 2017.

His breakout single “Get You” amassed over 10 million streams on Apple Music since its October 2016 release; According to his management, the singer’s catalog has garnered over 20 million global streams on Apple Music and 12 million streams on Spotify, with a listener-ship of over 740,000 per month.

On August 25, 2017, Caesar released his debut album Freudian, which included singles “Get You”, “We Find Love” and “Blessed”. The following day, Caesar announced the Freudian tour, a North American tour used to promote the album.

Khalid Amhearst Robinson (born February 11, 1998), known mononymously as Khalid, pronounced ‘KA-LEED’, is an American singer and songwriter. He is signed to Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records. He is best known for his debut single, “Location“, which peaked at number 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was certified platinum.

Khalid Robinson was born on February 11, 1998, in Fort Stewart, Georgia. He spent his childhood in various locations because of his mother Linda Wolfe’s career in the military, but often would visit Axtell, New Jersey for the summers. In Axtell, he met his childhood friend the legendary “Riff Da Great” who influenced the young Khalid to stay off the streets and in the studio. Khalid’s mother Wolfe worked as a supply technician for over 10 years and eventually earned a prestigious opportunity to sing in the US Army Band. In high school he studied singing and musical theater. During his senior year of high school, the family moved to El Paso, Texas, and Khalid graduated from Americas High School in 2016.

He reached No. 2 on the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart in July 2016, his single “Location” began charting, while Khalid began appearing on many publications’ “Artists you need to know” lists, including Billboard, Yahoo, Buzzfeed, and Rolling Stone. With production from Syk Sense, Tunji Ige, and Smash David, “Location” finished the year 2016 at No. 20 on the Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart and reached the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart on January 21, 2017. After premiering on The Fader, the video netted over six million views in its first four months on YouTube, while the song was streamed 35 million times on Spotify. “Location” has since received over 17 million plays on Soundcloud since it’s initial release.

Isobel Beardshaw (born 28 April 1994), better known as Izzy Bizu, is an English singer-songwriter signed to Epic Records. Bizu is from southwest London. Her mother is Ethiopian and her father is English. She grew up listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Bettye Swann and James Brown, and draws on these influences alongside newer influences such as Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse and Adele to create a fusion of soul, funk, jazz, and pop.

In November 2015, Bizu was shortlisted for a Brit Critics’ Choice award and longlisted for BBC‘s Sound of… 2016. She won the BBC Music Introducing Award at the 2016 ceremony. On 25 June 2016, Bizu performed on the Park Stage at the Glastonbury Festival.

    The Racial Demagoguery of Trump’s Assaults on Colin Kaepernick and Steph Curry
    September 23, 2017 at 7:16 pm

    excerpt:
    “In these performances, Trump is making clear his moral priorities. He is infinitely more offended by the sight of a black ballplayer quietly, peacefully protesting racism in the United States than he is by racism itself. Which, at this point, should come as no surprise to any but the willfully obtuse…”

    “What Trump is up to with this assault on athletes, particularly prominent black ones, is obvious; it is part of his larger culture war. Divide. Inflame. Confuse. Divert. And rule. He doesn’t care to grapple with complexity of any kind, whether it’s about the environment, or foreign affairs, or race, or the fact that a great American sport may, by its very nature, be irredeemable. Rather than embody any degree of dignity, knowledge, or unifying embrace, Trump is a man of ugliness, and the damage he does, speech after speech, tweet after tweet, deepens like a coastal shelf. Every day, his Presidency takes a toll on our national fabric. How is it possible to argue with the sentiment behind LeBron James’s concise tweet at Trump: “U Bum”? It isn’t.”

      Where are the blackademics when you need them? Somebody needs to do a think piece on team ownership and plantation ownership.

      Everytime I see a clip of a NFL owners walking the field during a NFL practice the thoughts crosses my mind “they are living the fantasy”.

      It’s still killing 45 that he is not in the ultimate club of white male ownership.

    49ers York: President Trumps comments callous and offensive

    Source: sfgate

    By Eric Branch Updated 8:41 pm, Saturday, September 23, 2017

    A year after he strongly backed Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel for the national anthem, 49ers CEO Jed York delivered a statement Saturday condemning the comments made by President Donald Trump at a rally in Huntsville, Ala., on Friday night.

    Trump told his audience that players who didn’t stand for the anthem should be fired, and said he wishes an owner would say, “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now!” to those who protested.

    Said York: “The callous and offensive comments made by the President are contradictory to what this great country stands for. Our players have exercised their rights as United States citizens in order to spark conversation and action to address social injustice. We will continue to support them in their peaceful pursuit of positive change in our country and around the world. The San Francisco 49ers will continue to work toward bringing communities, and those who serve them, closer together.”
    …………………………..

    The executive director of the NFL players union has a message for President Trump, “We will never back down.” This statement comes after the President suggested owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem.

    • Worldwatcher7

      White folks, listen up: The flag is piece of cloth, an inanimate object. It doesn’t have feelings, so it can’t feel disrespected. People do have feelings. Yes, this includes Black people. The people taking a knee are expressing strong feelings regarding injustice, not the flag. Almost nobody cares about the flag like that (not even y’all, if you’re honest).

    Statement from Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft

    Source: New England Patriots (and many news outlets)

    “I am deeply disappointed by the tone of the comments made by the President on Friday. I am proud to be associated with so many players who make such tremendous contributions in positively impacting our communities. Their efforts, both on and off the field, help bring people together and make our community stronger. There is no greater unifier in this country than sports, and unfortunately, nothing more divisive than politics. I think our political leaders could learn a lot from the lessons of teamwork and the importance of working together toward a common goal. Our players are intelligent, thoughtful and care deeply about our community and I support their right to peacefully affect social change and raise awareness in a manner that they feel is most impactful.”

    Graham pushes back on working with Democrats on health care reform

    Source: The Hill

    BY JULIA MANCHESTER – 09/24/17 10:00 AM EDT

    Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday pushed back on the possibility of working with Democrats on heath care reform, saying ObamaCare is a placeholder for “BernieCare” for Democrats.

    “I’ve come to conclude that ObamaCare is a placeholder for BernieCare in the Democratic world,” Graham said on ABC’s “This Week,” adding that there is no bipartisan process at this point for moving forward on health care reform.

    Graham’s comments come as he and Senate Republican leadership scramble to get GOP votes for the GOP’s latest repeal and replace legislation, the Graham-Cassidy bill which Graham co-sponsored with Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.).

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he would be voting against the legislation, saying he wanted to opt for a bipartisan solution that follows the “regular process” of hearings and committee discussion. McCain’s announcement is a near-fatal blow to the legislation, which now needs every other Republican vote in the conference to pass. Graham said he respects McCain’s decision but “I just disagree with him here.”

    GOP senator: Repealing ObamaCare ‘has nothing to do with politics’

    Source: The Hill

    BY REBECCA SAVRANSKY – 09/24/17 10:53 AM EDT

    Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said Sunday the GOP push to get an ObamaCare repeal bill passed has nothing to do with politics.

    “This has nothing to do with politics. It has nothing to do with donors.” Gardner said on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” when asked about whether there was a rush to pass the ObamaCare repeal bill for political and not substantive reasons.

    “It has everything to do with the people of this country who are suffering each and every day under a health care bill that is failing to meet their needs, that’s bankrupting them.”

    Gardner said the U.S. has a healthcare system right now that has led to higher costs and fewer choices. “It’s not working. That’s the reason why we need new policy. That’s what this fight is about,” he said. “It’s to make sure that the American people are better off.” .

    Trump Is Trying to Distract from His Big Losses
    September 24, 2017 at 10:13 am EDT

    Mike Allen quoted former Clinton advisor Doug Sosnik on what President Trump is trying to accomplish by attacking professional athletes who protest during the national anthem: “One of Trump’s typical moves is to toss a bomb out of nowhere to deflect what is really bothering him, in the hopes that the press will be distracted.”

    He added: “There is a good chance that the candidate he endorsed and campaigned for will lose in the Alabama Senate primary. On top of that, it looks like … another failed Republican attempt to repeal Obamacare. So he figures that the shows on Sunday focusing on his fights with professional athletes is more appealing than a discussion about how he is becoming a loser.”

    Collins Can’t See Voting for GOP Health Care Bill
    September 24, 2017 at 10:08 am EDT

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) told CNN that it would be “very difficult for me to envision a scenario” where she would vote for Republicans’ latest plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, but the Maine Republican said she wanted to wait for a Congressional Budget Office score of the Graham-Cassidy bill before rendering a final decision.
