Two months ago, it was announced that Fantasia and Anthony Hamilton would be bringing loads of soul to fans across the country on a joint tour. They’ve completed a few dates, but today, Fantasia added many more and Maxwell has been added to a few. The old schedule consisted of only ten dates until May 20th, but the revised schedule now extends until July 30th with more dates in between. Maxwell will appear on five dates toward the end of the trek in mid summer. Fans can go to Fantasia’s official web site for information on tour dates and purchase tickets. Singer Kevin McCall has been very busy lately, which means he’s more than likely preparing a new project. Last week, he released the Notorious B.I.G. assisted “The Love Of Money”. Now, he’s released the soulful ballad “Drive Me Crazy”. Produced by Tha Bizness, the song is  a throwback to southern soul as the crooner wails about not being able to live or live without the woman in his life. He really sings his heart out on this one! Last weekend marked the end of the  Coachella Music Festival, and it also marked the weekend after the untimely death of music icon Prince. Usher and Jhene Aiko are just two of the stars who performed at Coachella, and they took time to honor The Purple One during their sets. Usher got together with electronic music group Major Lazer for “I Would Die For U” and “1999”, two of Prince’s classics. Jhene Aiko also honored the icon by adding his 1991 single “Diamonds And Pearls” to her set along with producer Gallant. Ellie Goulding covered the Prince hit “When Doves Cry”, breaking it down to a piano laden ballad. A fitting tribute to a true genius who will never be forgotten. Rapper/producer Wyclef Jean was returned to the music scene with the single “My Girl”, featuring Sasha Mari. The track is a an incredible blend of Wyclef’s recognizable voice and newcomer Sasha Mari’s silky tone over a bright dancehall inspired beat. “My Girl” is Wyclef’s first single since his 2014 collaboration with Avicii “Divine Sorrow”. Wyclef’s forthcoming project “Carnival 3” will be released later this year. Those who don’t want to leave Hard Summer won’t have to. Hard Events flagship music festival has announced it’s 2016 lineup and transitioned to a two day camping festival, which will run from July 30-31 at the Auto Club Speedway in Southern California. Headliners Ice Cube and Major Lazer will be  joined by Flosstradamus, Dillon Francis, Porter Robinson and Travi$ Scott. The festival seeks to bounce back from the deaths of two attendees last year, which prompted the Los Angeles county task force to explore banning dance music festivals on public land and issue recommendations for tighter security measures and increased education. Tickets for the event are on sale  now.
