On March 31, Gender Amplified partnered with The Apollo Theater Education Program’s (ATEP) In-School Career Seminars (ISCS) to offer a music production workshop to students at the Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem, New York City.
The workshop, entitled “STEM Learning: Dissecting The Music Track,” covered the ways in which science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects are use to create music in the recording studio.
In-School Career Seminars offer students the opportunity to interact with business and creative professionals from the performing arts and entertainment industries. Seminars take place on-site at selected high schools and focus on such topics as marketing and public relations, entertainment law, artist management and technical production.
Alicia Keys took the stage to perform one of her new hit “In Common” at the 2016 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday, June 26th in Los Angeles. For years, the 35-year-old entertainer and performer has dazzled fans with her electrifying stage show, but this time things were a little different.
Surrounded by numerous synthesizers and electronic beat machines, Keys simultaneously synthesized her track and sang right in front of the audience. The performance perfectly blended live beatmaking with acoustic guitar playing. Check out the full recap below on BET.com.
