Summer Learning Journey - Day 13

Activity 1
Justin Bieber is arguably one of the most famous musicians in the world right now. He has had (#) of Number 1 hits, including the songs:
  1. Sorry
  2. Love Yourself
  3. Baby
Watch the three videos. After you have finished watching them, rank them from #1 (best) to #3 (worst). On your blog, list the three videos in order from best to work and tell us why you have ranked them in that order.
#1 - Sorry I am Rating Sorry 1 because it's catchy ( Kinda ) and because it's one of the few song Justin Bieber released with his face not on it Also because I love the dancers
#2 - Love Yourself the reason why I picked this song next because I liked it more than BABY and Dancing is great
#3 - Baby the reason why this song is last because JB was younger and his voice was a little high ( I don't like high ( not a hater just saying) Sorry cause I'm missing more than your body/sorry really )
Activity 2
Every year there is a huge music festival held in New Plymouth, New Zealand. It is called WOMAD. WOMAD stands for ‘World of Music, Arts and Dance.’ The festival began in 1980 and there are WOMAD festivals held every year in Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Spain, Italy and The United Arab Emirates. They attract singers and performers from all around the world. Imagine that you are on the WOMAD organising committee for next year. Which two musicians/bands would you invite to perform? On your blog tell us the names of the two musicians/bands and tell us a bit about them. Where are they from? What kind of music do they play?
Adele - Adele plays soul music ( about heartbreak and Relationship ) She was born in London, Adele has one child and she is a full time singer and songwriter.
Stan Walker - Stan Walker is an Australian born New Zealander Stan plays R&B Pop music. He won the 7th and last season of australian Idol.
Bonus Activity
There are literally dozens of different types (‘genres’) of music in the world, including classical, rock ‘n roll, Rhythm & Blues (R&B), pop, hip hop, rap, jazz, etc. Some musicians play on their own and some play as part of a band. Arguably, the most influential band of all time is The Beatles. They were a rock band from Liverpool, England.
Dozens of movies have been made about the band. The most recent was a documentary called ‘The Beatles: 8 Days a Week – The Touring Years.’ Watch the trailer for this movie.
After you have finished, tell us two things that you learned about the Beatles from watching this trailer. They can be any two interesting facts!
  1. At one stage the Beatles were the top british band and had the top records for the year
  2. The Beatle thought that they weren't hered and they got fed up so they decided to travel .

You are now fully recharged having spent the last few days watching TV and listening to music in your hotel room. You decide to go for a walk. As soon as you step outside you see a big bus drive past. On the side of the bus is a huge picture of the leader, the president/prime minister, of the country. They are the most powerful person in the whole country.

Hi Cherise,

I think that you have made a great choice of artists for the WOMAD festival. I love both Adele and Stan Walker and would be so excited to see them perform on stage at the event. This year the WOMAD festival will be held in New Plymouth, New Zealand in one month. It's getting close! I am hoping to get down to the festival for a few days, if work and weather permit! Do you enjoy going to music festivals or events? I don't often get a chance to go but I try to get to the free 'Music or Movies in Parks' events that are put on by the Auckland Council. Do you ever go to those?

There is one close to my house this Friday night so I have my fingers crossed that the weather is nice and the event isn't rained out...

Rachel :)
