Sensational Singing Sam Santiago

June 30, 2012 Featured, Sam Santiago, Young Male Artists M-Z No Comments

Sam Santiago Fountain Valley Festival 2012Amazing is a word that may be over used at times along with Awesome, Super, and Fantastic. However, when it comes to young singing sensation Sam Santiago, somehow they all just fit.

I recently spent a week in California visiting the Santiago Family and was privileged to follow along with Sam and his family as they went about their daily schedules.  I have to tell you that this family leads an exciting and busy life.  Of course they were not only wonderful hosts to my wife and I but it gave me an inside opportunity to see just what a fine oiled machine their family has become in order to keep up with Sam’s busy entertainment schedule.  Of course this is not even to mention Sam’s school schedule, concerts, and activities that every normal soon to be ten year old has as part of his daily life.

Our first weekend was filled with excitement right off the bat, (Pun intended), as Sam was scheduled once again to sing the National Anthem for the Minor League Storm Baseball Team game that Sunday.

We arrived early for a practice run around 11:00 am.  The field was in the grooming process and looked brilliant and colorful with fresh stripes of white outlining the bases and gorgeous green fields. Sam walked confidently to the front of the bullpen area and took the mic from our host.   What a treat to hear Sam’s young vibrant voice rattle the empty arena with his clear sounding acappella rendition of our National Anthem.  If you would like to hear and see the practice run visit Young Artists Global Facebook where that exclusive is posted.

Sam was greeted with a handshake at the end of his performance by a few of the players who were lined up against the bullpen fence where Sam also received a few autographs on his baseball that was awarded him by the radio announcer from the stadium after his practice run.  I have to tell you, it was an exciting time and a very proud moment for me to share with Sam which will not soon be forgotten.

The days that followed were filled with fun attending Sea World, Disneyland and touring Hollywood admiring some of the famous actor’s stars which are embedded in the sidewalk up and down Hollywood & Vine.  We also were able to meet up with a couple other young actors at the Hard Rock Café on Citywalk later that week.  (See previous post).

The following weekend we were again back in the excitement as Sam readied himself for his moment to shine singing The Philippine National Anthem at the Kalayaan Independence Day ’12 in Los Angeles at the Marriott Hotel.

It was a Gala Event with everyone dressed in traditional Philippine dress which is beautiful in both color and design.  I was given the honor to also wear a traditional shirt which was beautiful, and made me feel very much a part of this wonderful community of people and celebration.

As I watched with my trusty camera in hand Sam took his place in the center of the room with both the American and Philippine Flag held in respect and honor by the color guards.  I held my breath as Sam began to sing one of the most beautiful Anthems I had ever heard in the Native tongue of this beautiful people.

The following day was the Annual Fountain Valley Festival in which Sam was once again asked to perform.   I was really looking forward to this festival because Sam had prepared over 19 songs to perform for this event.  I knew that it was going to be a time to be able to hear Sam at his best! A full fledged concert with The Sensational Singing Sam at the mic.

I was not the least bit disappointed.  We gathered early and found our own table with a nice umbrella shielding us from the sun welcoming us into the park.  Taking a seat we watched the flurry of workers getting the stage ready with both sound and video equipment for the 45 min concert.

samfountainvalleyThe seats were empty even though another young band had just finished their segment but I really was not worried because I knew once Sam took the stage the crowd would begin to assemble.

After being given the honor to introduce Sam to the Fairgoers, Sam took the stage.  It wasn’t long before the seats began to fill in front of the stage and the crowd began to swell.   Soon there was standing room only with nearly every seat filled, and people congregating in a huge circle around the stage.  Sam did us all proud and the crowd cheered at the conclusion of every song performed.  To see some of the behind the scenes videos visit:  MY PERSONAL FACEBOOK where you will find them published for your viewing pleasure.

Sam has big things on the horizon before the summer is out!  Sam is currently working in the studio on his debut EP which will also include an original song.

He will have several cover songs which he has been requested to include on this EP, but you will have to wait just a little longer before I can reveal which songs he is thinking about including in this project.  If you have a request for Sam to cover a certain song be sure to visit his YouTube Site and his Brand New Domain Site  where you can contact Sam personally and request a song to include on his new EP!

You will also want to be watching this site for more about Sam. I will be returning to California in August to cover the launching of Sam’s debut EP.  In addition I will be covering Sam’s appearance on Television and his engagement at Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles,where Sam will be making a very special appearance. 

If you want to learn more details about Sam’s event engagements check out SAM SANTIAGO EVENT PAGE on his Domain Site.

On a side note, I’m hoping to meet up with Germany’s prince of a singer, Thilo Berndt during our next trip to LA as he will be visiting that area about the same time.  I also plan to spend some time with Alan Wheeler and company as our last trip did not allow enough time for that visit.

Coming Soon Fable of Forsaken

Gaitway Brothers

Fable of Forsaken Ad
In a behind the scenes look at a brand new film Rivenmaster is proud to announce that we will be featuring once again The Gaitway Brothers who are working as actors in a film called "The Fable of Forsaken"

Steven and Peter Gait, better known as "Gaitway Brothers" first appeared here in November of 2013. Since that time they have been working with some amazingly talented film producers and writers of short films. The boys were awarded an award for their last feature video called "With You" / Còmhla Riut-sa which was simply amazing being both beautifully written and produced.

Now both Steven and Peter are part of another project put together by the "Todd Brothers" from Scotland. Philip Todd (professional actor and editor), Matthew Todd (professional musician and writer), and Nathan Todd (web designer) teaming up with their cousins John and Tom Walkinshaw, making this a true family project!

Rivenmaster is honored to announce that we will be bringing you a full behind the scene FEATURED STORY about the making of this short independent film on August 1st.

While release date for the film has not yet been announced, you can be sure that it will be in the very near future. I have no doubt in my mind that we are all in for one of the greatest treats we have experienced in a long time. The fresh creativity of the Tod Brothers Team is outstanding and when they put their heads together what develops is nothing short of epic!

Be watching Friday August 1st for this article......... Rivenmaster

Aj Silva Musical Prodigy!

Aj Silva Christmas 2012

On December 12th, 2010, I introduced Aj Silva here on Rivenmaster's Place! Ajsil continues to pump out extraordinary videos that more than demonstrates his amazing singing abilities. I have no doubt that Anthony will not only continue to improve as a young artist but will be noticed very soon by a producer who will take him under their wings. Aj Silva has a personality that extends far beyond what you see on his videos. His natural ability to shine on the camera and show expression as he sings also makes him a candidate for the film industry.

Gaitway Brothers cover “He Aint Heavy” Official Video

 

Gaitway Brothers

Gaitway Brothers

Gaitway Brothers continue to put out entertaining videos and their latest is no exception to the rule. Their last major production won an award making them truly an award wining duo!

The boys have been working on their harmonies now for just a little over a year and this new cover proves that their work has paid off. For me it was a goose-bump performance especially when the high notes are reached with such ease and ability.

"He Ain't Heavy" was originally written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell and originally recorded by Kelly Gordon in 1969. The song became a worldwide hit for The Hollies and again for Neil Diamond in 1970. My personal favorite was recorded by the Osmond Brothers who made this a winning single in 1970.

The Gaitway Brothers are a natural. I have no doubt that as they continue to grow and develop their musical skills that we will be seeing more and more incredible performances and videos from them!

Congrats boys on a great project! I wish you the very BEST OF SUCCESS.

Rivenmaster.......
