There seems to be a pattern of optimal greatness here, and it's crystal clear why Fenty Beauty was also awarded "Invention of the Year" by Time in 2017.
Most Broadway fans are guilty of having put on a private performance or two of Les Miserables. But I bet it didn't sound nearly as professional as the LeBaron family's near-perfect rendition of "One Day More." The Utah family from Fruit Heights took on the classic musical's climactic number on Easter Sunday, and their performance sparked the fire of the French revolution in millions on the internet. “Anyone looking to do Les Miserables for their next show? Better yet…anyone looking for an entire cast?” wrote Jordon LeBaron in the Facebook post. For fans of the musical, his brother Landon's killer performance as Javert is almost enough to help us forget the brutal massacre that was Russell Crowe's attempt at the role in the 2012 movie. On KUTV, Jayson LeBaron explained that his ridiculously talented family didn't happen by accident. "We've all grown up singing together and we all married musically talented people," he said. The siblings participated in musical theater throughout high school and college. Their dad always helped with accompaniment on piano, while their mom took on the role of "musical director." "Music has been a unifying thing in our family, though we are all over Utah now from Kaysville to Salt Lake to St. George; we come together in the good times and during the trials with music keeping us real, and keeping us together, and keeping us happy." Although if you're asking this tough critic, the babies are not pulling their weight at all. I mean did you hear how flat that gurgle sounded?
Six-year-old Carden Corts delivered a hilarious weather forecast that quickly went viral. His dad, Charlie, spoke to Yahoo Entertainment about the making of this internet gem.
Ethan Renoe has become a viral sensation. A WGN TV news report about the unusually warm weather in Chicago featured him jogging shirtless on Sunday. While on the broadcast showing off his hot bod, Ethan said, “I love running in the rain. And I’m also single, so give me a shout.” This sent the Internet into a frenzy, and in less than 24 hours the video has gotten over 2 million views on Facebook. Ethan was on WGN TV again the following morning and said the response has been crazy. ...
The good people of Buffalo are well accustomed to wintry snowfall, but last week’s lake-effect shellacking was extreme even for Western New York standards, with a record eight feet falling in some areas. Visit Buffalo Niagara enlisted local singer Michele Marie Roberts to sing and record the latest in a seemingly endless line of Frozen parodies, but one that feels entirely warranted. "People who aren’t from Buffalo have this notion that when it snows we are all trapped in our houses," Roberts tells Yahoo Movies. "And while it was certainly the case for a few days this week, there is so much more to us than snow (and chicken wings). We have outdoor skating rinks, winter festivals, great skiing just an hour from here and amazing people. People came out of the woodwork to help neighbors, friends, strangers with everything from getting them their medications to digging out their cars. So I think we embrace our snow reputation like champs." After recording the parody (written by Karen Healy), Roberts and a film crew headed by John Paget took to the streets to shoot the accompanying video.
