In the last two years, Pepsi has re-imagined the SuperBowl halftime show, and in the spirit of innovation and creativity, took it a step further this year.
From young students to fans, and from veteran music label executives to the artists who have graced the GRAMMY stage, there were inspirational music educators in our lives who ignited our passion. This is our chance to give back.
Surprisingly, once we explore the symbolism, I think a lot of women will be able to relate to Lady Gaga's dream.
A good friend of mine called me a few days after our wedding at the 56th Annual Grammys to congratulate me. She is heterosexual, married, and th...
During an era when there are more of us over 60 than in the traditional "working age," who could quarrel with the fact that American economic growth needs older Americans to remain as economically engaged as their kids and grandkids?
