Many refer to the Jimmy Awards as the ‘Teen Tonys’ because they recognize excellence in musical theater but not on Broadway, in America’s high schools instead!
According to Billboard “Each year, 100,000 high school students from across the country participate in regional competitions, with 40 regions sending their winners to New York City in June. Those 80 nominees participate in an intensive week-long training with industry professionals in advance of one mega-performance at Broadway’s Minskoff Theatre, after which a Best Actor and Best Actress are chosen, winning college scholarships.”

Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell committed suicide last may leaving behind a heartbroken wife and three children. Cornell’s middle child, daughter Toni, age 13 released a duet she and her dad recorded of the Prince song ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ in tribute to him for Fathers Day with the poignant open letter to him below. Listen to the duet above.
It’s hard to imagine Toni Cornell was even younger than 13 when they recorded this! She obviously inherited her dad’s gift for singing. RIP Chris.

One of the biggest mysteries in rock is why original Journey front-man Steve Perry refuses to reunite with the band he helped make so famous.
