I almost went to see "Dunkirk" Friday afternoon. Now I wish I had.

Great movie. Pretty intense, with an interesting set of timeline perspectives that interplay together in a way I've personally never seen on film before.

What I should have mentioned in my prior post was that hearing Haley's voice in a theater REALLY had me longing for one of her songs to be part of a hit movie. It would be incredible to hear her sing while the credits are rolling. I long for that day, to be sure!

WEDDING OF THE DAY
Entourage's Jerry Ferrara and Breanne Racano's Beautiful Wedding Photos

Congrats are in order for Jerry Ferrara and Breanne Racano! On June 30, 2017, the Entourage star (you know him as Turtle!) and his beautiful bride invited 160 guests to Canton, Ohio, for a romantic ceremony and reception at Gervasi Vineyard, a Tuscan-inspired property near the bride's hometown. "This day was all about close friends and family—bringing people together from Los Angeles, New York, and Ohio—and celebrating in an intimate setting," she says. With their vineyard venue booked and intimate guest list set, the couple turned to the Cleveland-based wedding planners at A Charming Fete to design their big day, which was filled with romantic flowers in burgundy and blush tones.

[...]

After dinner and loads of mini desserts, Breanna and Jerry took to the dance floor for their first dance, to Haley Reinhart's cover of "Can't Help Falling in Love With You." A DJ kept everyone on the dance floor until the end of the night, when burgers from Swenson's, the bride's hometown favorite, were delivered for a late-night snack.

Haley Reinhart's "Can't Help Falling In Love" is very popular right now for bride/groom first dances!

They're located in the sparsley populated Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I wonder just how many weddings around the world have used it.

Quote:Elvis Presley, 40 years after his death, remains an icon and a cautionary tale

“He was so incredibly unique. He’s definitely somebody to look up to,” said Reinhart, who in March earned a gold record for her understated version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” a 1961 hit for Elvis.

CHFIL now has 66,641,059 streams on Spotify. It continues to get about 100K plays per day.

At 3 million plays per month the payout from Spotify should be around $15K per month. Who knows how much of that Haley receives but it continues to generate revenues.

The iTunes download count dropped gradually to less than 1K per week a number of months ago. It is probably less than 500 per week now. At this point Spotify is a much better source of revenue for the song and it may continue to send money Haley's way for a while.

Get a #BTS look at how @ExtraGum and @HaleyReinhart came together in "The Story of Sarah & Juan" from @energybbdo: http://bit.ly/2wqRZfD


Quote:Case Study: The Story Behind Wrigley's "The Story of Sarah & Juan"

When the spot was released in October of 2015, “The initial reaction was gangbusters. We were overwhelmed with the positive reactions, conversations and media coverage,” says Daniel Kuypers, Energy BBDO VP/director of music. “We actually put a chyron on the long-form video so people were, thankfully, able to see who the singer was.”

Reinhart, who competed in the 10th season of American Idol and placed third, and Los Angeles-based independent rights management company, Olé, released her version of the song as a single in conjunction with the release of “The Story of Sarah & Juan.” The track climbed to #1 on Spotify Global the week of its release, and since then has been streamed on Spotify more than 47 million times. In February of this year, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified that the record had gone gold.

[...]

In this case, “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” an enduring classic, was deemed the right fit, then came the search for a vocalist to record a new version of the song. Energy BBDO spent a month recording about 60 demos with both male and female singers singing solo—there were duets, too—with varying instrumentation before Reinhart won the gig. “Haley was the ultimate choice because of how intimate she was able to make the song,” Kuypers says.

Reinhart recorded her version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” in Los Angeles. “I was so excited when I heard the team at Wrigley and Energy [BBDO] wanted me specifically to lay down my own version of this iconic love song. I recorded it the very next day with my friend Casey Abrams, who was with me when I got the offer from Daniel Kuypers, on piano,” Reinhart says. “I’ve had my songs in commercial ads before, but this was the first time I’d been requested to sing a cover for a particular ad that felt more like it was a short film.”

In recording her own interpretation of the song, Reinhart wanted to stay true to the raw emotion of the original. “Elvis and the writers created a beautiful melody in the original that demands respect,” she says.

Reinhart recorded a few takes before she actually saw “The Story of Sarah & Juan” commercial. “I was taken aback by the breathtaking love story, and after shedding a few tears myself, I knew I needed to make it much softer, more intimate and pay homage to the simplicity that was so magical to begin with.”

Watching Reinhart sing the song in person was “a bit chilling, in a good way, a way that makes you smile and have emotional responses,” Kuypers says. “She does things with her voice that not many people can do. She has incredible control over her voice.”

Kuypers also notes how integral Abrams, the piano player, was in the recording process. “We could not have created this without Casey as well,” Kuypers says. “He and Haley have such a good dynamic and the closeness of their relationship was at least some of what enabled the song to come out so earnest.” ...

Good info there. Thanks for posting it. Haley says in the story she recalls Patti and her sisters singing it around her grandmother's piano. Grandma was obvious a big influence. Wonder how Harry came by his interest in music.

Not as intimate a story but Harry told me that the Beatles were who inspired him to pick up a guitar and learn to play it
