Don't know where else to put this but I know Haley loves Esperanza Spalding. She's got a new album out and when I heard this song: I immediately thought of Haley. If she ever did a cover of this she'd rock it like she rocked the 'Pathetic' cover by Erik Hassle (I love that cover SO much, wish it was Haley's song).
FB post of "Better" by the owner and manager of Black Rock Studios (Greece)

What an amazing voice Haley Reinhart! The song was written at the Black Rock during a songwriting camp.

Writing a song like "Better" at Black Rock is one of the best memories I have from a session. Hope to get to see you again soon Kostas!
Looks like Keith might be coming back to some Piano playing? Angel

Really good shots captured by Tina Pruitt

Haley still likes Keith's posts about his career now and again, so I'm hopeful that we'll see Haley and Keith perform together some day Heart
Quote:Anderson .Paak Is One of the Year’s Breakout Artists, But He Won’t Let Fame Kill Him—or Make Him Comfortable

...Not too long ago, though, Paak wasn't sure if music was a viable future for him. "There was a handful of years where I didn't trust what I was doing," he says. Born in sleepy Oxnard, Calif., and raised up the road in Ventura, there weren't many opportunities for him to validate his talent. He played drums in punk bands and DJed house parties and dances at the Boys and Girls Club, but mostly he stayed in his room, writing raps and making beats. A few years out of high school, married with a child on the way, Paak put his artistic ambitions on ice completely, taking a lucrative job on a pot farm in Santa Barbara. When that ended suddenly, he had no choice but to dig in and try to make the music thing work. "After having my son, things got more serious for me," he says. "My perspective got a little more clear. My priorities started to get in place, and I developed more of a work ethic. I spent six months or so just recording, waking up early, taking it just like a job."

After a period of couch-surfing, Paak landed a gig as the touring drummer for American Idol alum Haley Reinhart, helping him get back on his feet financially. He swapped his original alias, Breezy Lovejoy, for a jumbled version of his birth name, Brandon Paak Anderson—which he stylizes as ".Paak," the period serving as a reminder to himself to "pay attention to detail"—and began living in the studio. In two years, he dropped a head-turning full-length, Venice, along with a pair of collaborative EPs and dozens of guest spots. The smooth-grooving single "Suede" got him through the door with Dre and onto Compton. After that, Paak's phone started ringing much more frequently. Another big-league Compton rapper, the Game, tapped him for two songs on his latest album, and blogs that previously ignored Paak were suddenly declaring him a "savant."

I happened to watch the debate and was surprised to see Morgan singing the national anthem. Like Haley at the Dodger's game, Morgan did a fantastic job with it.

Would still like to see more collaborations between Haley and Morgan!

Morgan did do an excellent job with the anthem. Performing the NA is always an adventure.
