A new year means new music. With the 50th Grammy Awards just days away, it is definitely time to say goodbye to last year's music. However, it is also welcoming a warm hello to 2008's music.
One R&B singer who is starting to have success again is none other than Alicia Keys. She released her latest album, As I Am, in November 2007. Since then, she is currently riding on the two top-charting singles, "No One" and "Like You'll Never See Me Again." There is no word on her third single just yet. Keys will be touring around the world, including the U.S., throughout the first half of 2008.

Every once and awhile, a musician will create such a masterpeice that it can be transformed into a sort of motion picture called a musical. This was done in Across the Universe
, a musical based on a compilation of songs made famous by The Beatles. The Across the Universe
soundtrack was quite unnecessary.
If Beatlemania was to be revived by the "all new recordings" of the old favorites, then surely Beatlemania is in the Intensive Care Unit. On life support.

The James Logan Colt's boys' Varsity basketball team had a chance to get into the North Coast Section tournament Tuesday, but fell short.
Last Thursday, the Colts lost to the Newark Memorial Cougars for the third time this season. Similar to the past two games that Logan played against Newark, the Colts managed to stay side by side with the Cougars leaving behind close scores at end of the first, second, and third quarter. However, Logan fell under the anxiety of the game where Newark broke through with a victory. The score was 59-70.
Furthermore, since Logan still stood a chance in qualifying for the North Coast Section (NCS) tournament they were pushed to play in another play-off game against the Antioch Panthers on Tuesday night to help determine the seating.
