Like the rest of America and the world that tuned into the #1 rated show on television this past season; unsuspecting tens of millions of people all bore witness to the volcanic, cataclysmic, vocal coach magnificence that is TV’s latest overnight phenomena; MISS PEGGI BLU… who Ryan Seacrest affectionately dubbed, ‘The Vocal Coach From Hell’!
The results are in and it is unanimous from Peggi’s peers, pupils, the press & public alike, in an ailing recording industry that no longer invests any real time or dimes on Artist Development, THIS WOMAN ROCKS, TRIPS, KICKS & WHIPS KIDS INTO SHAPE ON THE REAL TO REMOTELY HAVE A CHANCE AT GETTING A RECORD DEAL!
Billboard Magazine declares “…Someone give this woman her own show…“.
Hillary Rothing of The TV Squad exclaims “…We’ve found the new Simon…”.
Andrew Payne of Starpulse Magazine writes “…Peggi Blu was clearly the breakout star of the show…”.
Andy Denhart of Reality Blurred demands “…Peggi Blu, the vocal coach from hell, needs to replace (or at least join) mentor Jimmy Iovine”).
Standing not much more than a diminutively candescent 5’4″, Peggi Blu, even as part of the ratings earning, cash churning juggernaut, that is AMERICAN IDOL, quite frankly, she still stands out in a class all by herself within their illustrious ranks; as she is the only vocal coach that can legitimately claim, in addition to having headlined, starred and/or sang on Broadway (“THE WIZ” & “MARILYN: AN AMERICAN FABLE”), The World Famous Apollo Theater (“THE SPIRIT OF HARLEM”), across the U.S., around the world, even starring in the only musical production ever produced by Michael Jackson (“SISTERELLA”), and specifically chosen by President Bill Clinton to sing at his inauguration, to join Barbara Streisand on her latest tour & TV special, hand picked to handle & arrange the backgrounds for the likes of Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Stephanie Mills & Luther Vandross; that she was also a contestant on a national televised talent competition herself; where in only eight minutes and four shows (2 minutes per show) Miss Blu blew the competition away and was awarded the 1986 Grand Champion Female Vocalist Award and the $100,000.00 prize that came along with it on STAR SEARCH hosted by the legendary Ed McMahon.
So when this 50 year showbiz veteran gave those naive, narrow minded, neophyte novice, Pop star hopefuls ‘hell‘ for NOT knowing The Beatles (music’s most successful group), their lyrics, their respective notes & vocal parts and/or even how to properly emote on a stage; in a no nonsense, jagged edged, delivery unlike we’ve ever seen on AMERICAN IDOL; it was the brutal breath of fresh air that the show truly needed since the departure of Simon Cowell. Unfortunately, by the time Simon berated these wide eyed hopefuls, it is onstage and therefore, too late; but when Peggi Blu gets through to them, it’s exactly where they need it… back stage, wood shedding in full rehearsal mode, as they try to make themselves ready for their prime time television debut.
Peggi Blu is quite simply a singer’s singer and an entertainer’s entertainer… the real deal in every sense of the word. Renowned in Europe, headlining in Africa, sought after here in the states if you want your vocals (either live or in the studio) done fast, tight & right; Peggi Blu is the one the industries best kept secrets but (still) ‘The One’ the most celebrated recording stars all call first! When she walks into a room of industry giants and big wigs, all heads must bow and all mouths must confess, ‘that woman knows what she’s doing, and if you let her, she will improve the voodoo that you (think) you do, so well“. An unsung vocal powerhouse with a galactic echelon of onstage experience, impeccable character, dead on professionalism and the walking personification of precise perfect power under pressure; what makes her unique on IDOL or any other tutelage capacity is that she can back up what she yaks up… she vocally reaches everything she preaches and teaches. No auto-tune necessary, thank you very much!
With currently a new album in place, produced masterfully by her longtime collaborator, musical director and husband, the Grammy Award winning Producer, Ted Perlman, touring her self penned show, “BLU SINATRA” with her mesmerizing renditions of Ole Blue Eyes’ classics channeled through this fierce black woman and headlining gigs at The Las Vegas Hilton as part of her showbiz Son, Eric Floyd’s DIVA FEVER REVUE and Eric Floyd’s OLD SCHOOL PARTY alongside contemporaries as Thelma Houston, Freda Payne, Carol Douglas, Wanda Dee, Sister Sledge, The Emotions & AMERICAN IDOL alumni, Frenchie Davis, just to name a few, she remains as relevant and on point today, mesmerizing audiences the world over, as she always has!
Peggi has also vocally coached her showbiz Grandson, Siameze: The Godson Of Rock & Soul (Vegas’ youngest headliner) as he completes his self produced / self written debut Pop/Funk/Rock/Dance album project; “Born To Dance” (with co-production also by Ted Perlman, Chico Bennett & Full Force).
The Jury may still be out on how and/or if AMERICAN IDOL’s returning Producer, Nigel Lythgoe will do with Peggi Blu, but if he’s got his ears tuned to the streets, then he’ll act swiftly to keep this no nonsense, gut wrenching, kick ass, hell raising vocal champion & Master Class Teacher as part of the show in a much more wider & greater featured capacity; for America just can’t get quite enough of her. Finally, someone to tell these chil’ren like it is, who is a true vocal veteran of The Biz!
Chantal Atkins/The Rhythmic Lounge
The Rhythmic Lounge was created in order to open the doors for up and coming “artists” and “entertainers” of all kinds and to give people a place to promote their talents and network. The Rhythmic Lounge started as a fairly simple website but has turned into so much more, with the creation of The Rhythmic Lounge Radio.
Following suit, the radio started out as merely a 24/7 stream of hand-picked music submitted by talented musicians from the website but is now an integral part of the company. Listeners from all over the world tune in regularly to hear the wide variety of music, as well as the educational, musical and talk-radio shows that we now host.
The success of the website and radio has taken The Rhythmic Lounge to a whole new level, and I am proud to announce that The Rhythmic Lounge magazine will make its debut in June 2012.
This is the place for all artists / musicians / writers / bands / poets / comedians / models / actors / actresses / lyricists / photographers / djs and more. If you want to be noticed, this is the place to be!
