Cyndi Lauper ~ All Memphis Music ~ "Twitter Cast" ~ Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau ~ Memphis Blues"
Cyndi Lauper-'Memphis Blues' new CD
Tonight, Thursday at 7PM EST, All Memphis Music is excited to present a special “Twitter Cast” featuring Cyndi Lauper as she Tweets comments about her Top Ten favorite Memphis songs while they play live, on All Memphis Music. Her new album, Memphis Blues, recorded in the River City’s own Electrophonic Studios, pays tribute to the blues and its rich history. She’s chosen a powerful ensemble cast to assist her, including Charlie Musselwhite, BB King, Ann Peebles, Allen Toussaint and Johnny Lang. The exclusive broadcast is one of many innovations AllMemphisMusic has popularized since its 2006 arrival.
Cyndi Lauper, no stranger to even the most casual pop music fan, burst on the scene with her stunning Portrait Records 1984 debut, She’s So Unusual, which featured “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” The album quickly sold over four and a half million records and launched a career which continues to showcase Cyndi’s versatility and eclectic tastes.
The Cyndi Lauper/AllMemphisMusic “Twitter-cast” figures to be an insightful discourse through the eyes and ears of a true pop icon about the music that’s meant so much to Memphis’ musical heritage as well as the culture of pop music in the 20th and 21st centuries. Since the release of Memphis Blues, Cyndi has again become one of the most sought after personalities in music. She’s appeared on “American Idol,” played a psychic on the wildly popular Fox TV series, “Bones,” and made an impressive showing on “Celebrity Apprentice.” She’s currently on a national tour that will take her to major markets around the U.S.
