Repeatedly at the forefront of industry trends, Robert Earl, the entrepreneur, restaurateur and star of the Cooking Channel’s “Robert Earl’s Be My Guest®,” reached out to Fieri because of their shared passion for food.  In addition to the section designed by Fieri, the Planet Hollywood Observatory will soon reveal the entire new menu featuring a wide variety of offerings and bold flavors.

Guy Fieri has created an impressive culinary empire and has built an incredible TV following with several food-themed shows, so it was a no-brainer to invite him to create a special menu for Planet Hollywood Observatory.

Jim Henson Company Hosts, “Puppets For Puppetry” Fundraiser to Honor The Esteemed Puppeteer Dave Goelz on September 24, 2016

Jim Henson Company Hosts, Puppets for Puppetry Fundraiser with Host Dave Goelz

Jim Henson Company Hosts, Puppets for Puppetry Fundraiser with Host Dave Goelz

The Jim Henson Company is hosting “Puppets for Puppetry,” a fundraiser for The Center for Puppetry Arts honoring the esteemed puppeteer Dave Goelz, best known to fans around the world as the performer of iconic puppet characters like The Great Gonzo, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Boober Fraggle, Traveling Matt, and many more. The event will be held at The Jim Henson Company’s historic Hollywood studio lot on September 24, 2016 – a doubly auspicious date for Henson friends and fans as it would have been Jim Henson’s 80th birthday. The unique live performance will be led by Tony Award-nominee John Tartaglia (Avenue Q) and promises to be a musical and fun evening.

The event benefits The Center for Puppetry Arts, whose mission is to inspire imagination, education and community through the global art of puppetry. The Atlanta-based nonprofit is the nation’s largest and only resource of its kind, featuring a worldwide puppetry collection, vibrant theatre spaces, and an education department that develops puppetry talent through workshops and performances. The Center for Puppetry Arts also uses the latest technology to offer its award-winning Distance Learning programs for PreK-adult through videoconferencing and recorded content.  The arts-infused workshops and interactive puppet performances are conducted via videoconferencing and are tailored to specific classroom topics and curriculum. The programs complement national curriculum standards in language arts, social studies, science, math and other areas and serve schools nationwide.

The Center for Puppetry Arts recently expanded to include a new gallery housing the Jim Henson Collection and the Worlds of Puppetry Global Collection. These two permanent exhibits together represent the most definitive display of both Henson puppets and other puppetry traditions from around the world.

“The Center for Puppetry Arts is the only location of its kind in the U.S., and is particularly special to me and the entire Henson family,” said Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company. “My father dedicated the Center for Puppetry Arts at its opening, and he continued to support both the Center and the art forms of adult and traditional puppetry throughout his years of success with the Muppets.”

“The Center for Puppetry Arts is extremely happy to have The Jim Henson Company’s continued support which allows us to bring programs that educate and inspire imagination to communities across the country,” said Vincent Anthony, the Barbara and Bill Wylly Executive Director at the Center for Puppetry Arts.

Dave Goelz is an inspiring puppeteer and has brought some of the world’s most beloved characters to life,” said John Tartaglia.  “From a ‘whatever’ who eats rubber tires, to an explorer fascinated by ‘silly creatures,’ Dave’s characters are full of joy and have a love of playfulness.  We are planning an exciting performance to honor his incredible contribution to the art of puppetry.”

“Puppets for Puppetry” is hosted by The Jim Henson Company with support from The Muppet Studio. Individual tickets start at $250 with tables and sponsorship packages beginning at $7,500.  For additional information please visit: http://www.puppetsforpuppetry.eventbrite.com/

This new release brings together some of the most popular figures from Disney, videos games, and superhero movies and presents them in a way that anyone can use them and create perfect designs in their own Halloween pumpkins.”

The new release features a wide array of both characters and symbols that people can use freely.

Lexi Walker – Wishes & Dreams EP – Available Now

Portrait Records announces the release of Wishes & Dreams, a 3-song EP available August 12 from Lexi Walker, the 14-year-old YouTube singing sensation. A follow-up to her 2015 holiday album, Merry Christmas, the new EP features a fresh, brilliant take on two Disney classics, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella and “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio. Also featured on the album, coinciding with the 2016 Olympics, Lexi re-energizes “The Power of the Dream,” Celine Dion’s legendary opening ceremony number from the 1996 Games, with her trademark youthful power and sparkle.

“I chose these songs because I felt like they were timeless classics, something everyone can enjoy listening to,” says Lexi. “Disney music is iconic and even though there are countless covers, I wanted to share my version. The lyrics are awesome, and the arrangements by Lisle [Moore], Kendra [Lowe] and Kurt [Bestor] are equally amazing!  I especially enjoyed doing ‘Power of the Dream’ – the music is so powerful, and Celine Dion is one of my favorite artists. Singing any one of these songs makes me feel like wishes and dreams really do come true!”

At two-years-old, Lexi Walker, the dynamic young songbird sang in front of her first crowd.  A decade later, the angelic-voiced redhead from Salt Lake City, Utah signed to Portrait Records.  Lexi starred in a viral video of “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen with Alex Boyé and the One Voice Children’s Choir, which has garnered nearly 80 million views!  She has appeared on America’s Got Talent, Good Morning America, Disney’s Frozen Christmas Celebration and The Queen Latifah Show; and sung with The Piano Guys, Kristin Chenoweth, Lindsey Stirling, David Archuleta, Jenny Oaks Baker, the Lyceum Philharmonic, and the Fairfax Symphony.

To date, Lexi has performed in Las Vegas, Walt Disney World, Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, and The Kennedy Center at Christmas-time for the Troops, as well as singing the National Anthem at stadiums throughout the U.S.  Overseas, Lexi has done a tour of Japan and performed in China at the Beijing International Film Festival.  For more information visit http://lexiwalker.net.
