Catherine: I miss the food most.

How do you like living in Los Angeles?
Catherine: I love living in Los Angeles. It’s a great place to be, especially for our career. It’s also an inspiring place, being around so many talented people.

Do you all live together?
Janelle: Yes, we share the same house.

Is it tough working with Randy Jackson?
Jodi: Randy is one of the coolest, most genuine people we have ever met in the music industry.

Halloween Magic Promises 2016 Fundraiser To Be Outrageously Funny

Halloween Magic Promises 2016 Fundraiser To Be Outrageously Funny

Houston’s Halloween Magic Roars Back To The Stage This Year Celebrating 25 Years With Honorary Chairs Annise Parker And Kathy Hubbard.

HOUSTON Oct. 2 — This is one of those Halloween parties you do not want to skip. The hilarious election-year satire, mixing risqué Montrose humor with Broadway show tunes, gears up at the Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church on Saturday, October 22 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, October 23 at 4:00 pm.

Roaring to the stage for its 25th anniversary production, Rand Paul’s Drag Race: Destination 1600 Avenue, directed by Dennis Draper of The Alley Theatre. Maria Todd will host the show.

“We set out to do the most outrageous send up of a political race, set against the backdrop of the antics of a real beauty pageant,” Gary Rodd, veteran Halloween Magic writer and cast member stated.

Some of Houston’s theater luminaries have been cast in honor of its silver anniversary. Mary Hooper plays Melania Trump, Deborah Hope appears as Sarah Palin, and Mark Ivy impersonates Rand Paul.

“We watched Smile, a 1976 beauty pageant movie, and Miss Congeniality for source material. Youtube is an immense help as was the Ru Paul show. We knew we would have five finalists: Rubio, Cruz, Trump, Hillary and Bernie. And we’re going to have a Charlie’s Angels trio of Melania Trump, Sarah Palin, and Bill Clinton,” Rodd added.

Founded in 1988, Halloween Magic has raised over $1 million for Houston HIV/AIDS service organizations. This years beneficiaries include Lazarus House, Legacy, Pet Patrol, Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church, and Omega House.

Tickets are $50, and may be purchased at www.HalloweenMagic.org, or by calling 713-256-3880.

Shawn Mendes Gives Rodeo Houston ‘Performance Of A Lifetime’


(Houston, Texas) Walking on the worlds most famous rotating stage is enough to make any veteran entertainer nervous. But on Sunday night, a brave 17-year old named Shawn Mendes delivered the performance of his life among 71,976 screaming teenagers.

Changing the ‘normal’ on the famous stage, Mendes didn’t play by the past rules. He charted his own.

In a courageous surprise, Mendes arrived alone to the Rodeo Houston stage. No band, back up singers, or dancers. The stage was empty! Armed with nothing but an acoustic guitar, the singer did what few entertainers dare to do, and what Rodeo Houston hasn’t experienced in years. Mendes provided pure and solid acoustic vocals with no distractions, no auto-tune, and no band in sight. It was raw and beautifully acoustic.

“I’ve never played to a crowd this large before.” Mendes said in between songs. “This happens to be one of the most incredible things I’ve seen in my entire life.” Mendes who recently toured as Taylor Swifts opening act admitted to ‘loving the crowds scream.’

One of the most heart touching moments from Sunday’s performance came when Mendes spoke to the crowd, relating to ‘tough times’ as a teenager. He explained to the crowd consisting mostly of teens; that times do get hard, but things ‘always get better.’

“Sometimes I feel like the world is on my shoulders.” He said, “But it will truly get better. It does.”

15-short hours before touching down in the Lone Star State, Mendes was standing center stage at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. The official kick off to his sold-out world tour.

Before leaving the rodeo stage Mendes made sure each fan heard his love. “I love it here. I love Texas. This is amazing.”
