▶ Hey Academy, I’m a Woman. – YouTube.

The Oscars Academy is 93% white and 76% male… In the Directing, Writing and Cinematography sections, nominees were 26 men to… 0 women! Isn’t it time they included some diversity?

Three actresses got fed up with the Academy for excluding women and wrote a song about it. Go girls!

Teachers surprised children at school church service by singing and dancing to “Let it Go”, the famous song from Disney’s Frozen.

This is the hilarious moment teachers surprised schoolchildren by bursting into a choreographed version of Let It Go from Frozen at a church service.

Groups of teachers popped up from seats around the church to join in with the flashmob-style performance to the delight of the school’s 750 children.

Headteacher Paul Howieson kicked things off by dramatically reading the first verse aloud at the festivities for Baden-Powell and St Peter’s Church of England Junior School in Poole, Dorset.

Wearing Santa hats and other festive accessories, around 60 teachers took part and even the rector, Reverend Michael Camp, had a starring role in the performance.

 

For Once In My Life: tribute to Stevie Wonder by children choir

▶ For Once In My Life: Tribute to Stevie Wonder by the Capital Children’s Choir – YouTube.

The lyrics are easy, you can sing along!

“For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I’ve needed so long
For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me
And somehow I know I’ll be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Would make my dreams come true

For once in my life I won’t let sorrow hurt me
Not like it’s hurt me before
For once, I have something I know won’t desert me
I’m not alone anymore

For once, I can say, this is mine, you can’t take it
As long as I know I have love, I can make it
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me ”

Muslim Hipsters show a new face of headscarves to the tune of a J-Zay song

Late last month, Rattani and a group of Mipsterz (= Muslim hipsters) released a video to the tune of the Jay-Z song “Somewhere in America” .

The video shows diverse Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab, or head covering, and do so with individual style. The women are also seen doing quirky, random things like skateboarding, walking around a forest, and other hipster-esque escapades.

These women are lawyers, doctors, athletes, mothers, shoppers, but above all they are powerful Muslim American women… and they are hipsters!

The video has sparked huge amounts of commentary, both positive and negative.
