Azania Noah Livestream Universe Update

Beyonce Sets YouTube Livestreaming Record; Musicians Who Livestream

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Wednesday, April 18th, 2018.

Technode is reporting China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism shut down 370 live streaming apps after examining nearly 5-thousand of them. There are also some major players in China’s livestream industry that are under investigation, including two that received a combined one billion dollars in funding. Areas being investigated include content that promotes “violence, pornography, gambling, superstition, and other values harmful to public morality.”

Beyonce racked up the highest YouTube livestream viewership of any performance in Coachella’s history. She had 458,000 simultaneous live viewers during her Saturday set.

Our Wednesday Spotlight theme features musicians who livestream:

Azania Noah is an international singer, song-writer and recording artist. She’s been invited to perform for 4 heads of state and in some of the most prestigious venues in the world. Azania won first prize in a French TV competition similar to American Idol. She was also featured on “The Voice” in France, seen by more than 8 million viewers. In addition to sharing her singing voice on livestreams, Azania uses live video meetings to provide vocal training and career coaching to aspiring singers through her Singer Elite program.

Claudia Santiago is also a bilingual singer and international recording artist who performs live in many different musical styles. Claudia has a new album coming out soon. Her live streaming talk shows cover a wide range of topics including health, careers, women’s empowerment and art. She also livestreams her rehearsals. Claudia organized full-day music festivals in support of Mario Armstrong’s Never Settle Show.

Speaking of the Emmy winning Never Settle Show, co-produced by Roker Media, the show’s band features Cassandra Kubinski on keyboards and lead vocals and Tony Daniels on guitar. Cassandra has released 6 albums and her songs have been chosen for tv shows and commercials. She’s collaborated with some of the biggest stars in the music business, including Billy Joel. She wrote the inspiring song “Not So Different” in support of Autism Speaks. Tony is an accomplished voice actor doing everything from movie and commercial characters to tv promos, animation and narration. He’s the voice of Tony the Tiger and does a wide range of accents.

Mario Armstrong’s Never Settle Show Wins Emmy for Interactivity

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Monday, April 16th, 2018.

The Emmy nominees included Newsday.com, MSGNetwork.com and WPIX-TV, but the winner of the NY Emmy for Interactivity goes to Mario Armstrong’s Never Settle Show, co-produced by Roker Media. Cathy Nolan was a cast member and the show’s caricaturist during the Emmy-winning first season. She said an Emmy never crossed her mind when she joined the show.

The Emmy for Interactivity rewards “cutting-edge innovation by actively engaging audience participation over multiple media platforms,” including “(digital and social media elements) to drive engagement before, during and after the broadcast.”

Cathy credits Mario’s hosting talent for the in-show engagement.

Cathy said Mario’s own journey in creating the Never Settle Show embodies what the show is all about.

What made being part of season 1 so special?

Thanks to Cathy Nolan for spending time and sharing her thoughts on the Never Settle Show’s Emmy Award. You find out more about Cathy and see her artwork across social media at @cathynolanart.
