Interscope Releases All-Star Single 'Hands' to Benefit Orlando

Music industry heavyweights such as Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Juanes, P!nk, Mary J. Blige, Selena Gomez, and Britney Spears are among 24 artists featured on “Hands,” a new single that has been released by Interscope Records to benefit the victims of the Pulse shooting last month.

The all-star release was conceived by hit songwriter Justin Tranter, who along with GLAAD and Interscope president of A&R Aaron Bay-Schuck put the word out that a fundraiser was in the works.

The artists all recorded their parts separately from their homes, local studios, touring locations, or wherever they happened to be at that moment.

Out and About: P!nk at the Amway Center in Orlando on February 24, 2013

I saw P!nk on her first tour over a decade ago, and like a fine wine, her performances have only gotten better and better.

pink-amway022413dSunday, February 24, 2013, P!nk brought her “Truth About Love” tour to the Amway Center and totally tore the place apart with a show that was as brilliant visually as it was musically.

Clocking in at almost 2 hours, her show started with her hit, “Raise Your Glass,” (one of my favorite songs of hers), which she performed dangling upside down on bungee chords with some of her dancers.

That set the tone of the show, which often found her not just working the stage, but taking flight on numerous pieces of aerial equipment.

My favorite was a gyroscope-type of harness that not only allowed her to spin in multiple directions, but slingshot her out over audience, bring her so close to the fans in the back and the upper levels of the arena, that I think she could have high-fived some of them.

All the while, she kept singing hit after hit, her voice strong and real – no lip-syncing here!

Another favorite part of the show was her vocal prowess on recent hit, “Try,” which began with a spoken-word introduction, and then sequed into a gorgeous rendition of Chris Isaak’s, “Wicked Game.”

Opening act was Swedish rockers The Hives. While they weren’t as visual as P!nk, they put on a great high energy show that was a perfect lead-in to the headliner.

Make no mistake, P!nk isn’t merely one of the best and most popular singers and songwriters in music today, she is a full-fledged all-around entertainer.

As evidenced by her latest tour, P!nk is the real deal and well worth the ticket price.

Here are a few more photos from the show:
