Keila Snyder's insight:
I completely agree with this artists message. It uplifts those being knocked down in not just the entertainment industry but the society of today world wide. This is a credible source and it is used widely in the music industry.

This scoop is from https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/lovelytheband-fights-for-lgbtq-rights-in-maybe-im-afraid-video-824403/
The Rolling Stone is a monthly magazine. It was founded in San Francisco in 1967, and consider to be one of the most reliable sources of music news. 
This video is dealing with an important subject that many people, (men and women) are struggling with. I think that "Lovelytheband" is doing the right thing by releasing a video telling a story about a man that all his life has been struggling with his sexuality. It will help a lot of young people and maybe even kids to talk about their issues and leave a truthful life. 
Thank you, Lovelytheband.

Keila Snyder's insight:
This is a touching piece on oppression of the community and I honestly cannot wait to see it. I admire that she fought just as hard for the film production and distribution as her characters are fighting for their love. Yes this is a credible source and no it is not widely used in the industry.

it real deal affect the brain, I personally know being a musician songwriter it affects it in a good way...

the date of the research information and credibility of the site makes it reliable...

Major Informational

Daniel Jimenez's curator insight, August 26, 11:12 PM
I really enjoyed this mini-documentary because I have an easier time with a visual aid. This video went through many scenarios that showed just how much music affects our brain in a positive way. I specifically enjoyed seeing the example of a musicians brain at work.
Reliability of this work is a little on the grey end for me. Wired is a YouTube channel with almost 5 million subscribers and posts various subjects of content. The main character who is tested and narrates the mini-documentary is unknown and there is no way to find more information about him. However, in the video, they consult real therapists and doctors for their tests and questions making me want to believe that this is a reliable source.
Since Wired posts various subjects of content I do not think this is a major resource for audio professionals. I definitely think this video is useful to some professionals but it seems that if any content from Wired is useful, it would be a niche subject.

Keila Snyder's insight:
This is a phenomenal work of art highlighting the stand that us Black Woman need to take against the shaming of the differences in our embodiment of melanin. Youtube is a credible source and it is widely used in the entertainment industry.

Why No Women Were Nominated for ACM Entertainer of the Year

Why No Women Were Nominated for ACM Entertainer of the Year | Full Sail University | Scoop.it
Female country musicians were shut out of the ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year category for the second year in a row.

Keila Snyder's insight:
It seems to me as if the country music genre wants to keep it a make dominated genre. The dynamic of change in society has in my opinion white males at a disadvantage. LGBT and African Americans have dominated much of entertainment and news today. It seems that they just want something to themselves and by cutting women out of radio AirPlay they are succeeding at keeping themselves on top. This is a credible source but it is not used widely in the industry it’s an online publication.

Dawn VanDam's curator insight, March 28, 9:32 AM

Reba McEntire announced the nominees for the 2019 American Country Music Awards (ACM). Though this is usually a time of celebration, McEntire seemed visibly saddened at the results for Entertainer of the Year. When asked about the results, McEntire said, "Well it doesn't make me very happy because we got some very talented women who are out there working their butts off. I'm missing my girlfriends on this."

 

Although women like Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood are household names in the country music industry, there were no women nominated for Entertainer of the Year. To understand why, one must look at the criteria for the nomination.

 

According to Justin Kirkland at  Esquire.com, “The factors to be considered include, but are not limited to, success at radio, sales of pre-recorded music, success of music videos, vocal performances, live concert ticket sales, artistic merit, appearances on television, appearances in films, songwriting, success in digital media, and contributions to the country music industry.

 

Based on this criteria, two pieces of information stand out. The first is radio play. Streaming services may dominate most music genres, but country listeners are still very much getting their music from the radio. Country outranks talk radio as the most played radio station in the industry. The lack of women on the air is a key factor in why there are not more women nominated for ACM awards. The phenomenon of male-dominated radio has been well-reported on. This week alone, there were only two women in the top 20 Billboard Country Music charts.

 

This lack of radio play rolls over into ticket sales. Last year Kenny Chesney had the ninth-grossing tour of any music artist, according to Forbes, but his album was outsold by both Carrie Underwood’s Cry Pretty and Kacey Musgraves’ Golden Hour. The nominations do not track with criteria which would also include album performance and songwriting.

 

In the wake of the 2019 Grammy’s, which featured more women than ever before, the lack of women as nominees for Entertainer of the Year is disappointing. However, the results will not change until the selection criteria has been changed. For more information, visit the source article at Esquire.com.

Africa - Rocker ladies in Botswana | DW Documentary

Published on Mar 27, 2019
A heavy metal fan base has been developing in Botswana for years now, and a surprising number of women from across the generations are identifying with the genre as they rebel against a society structured along patriarchal lines.

Keila Snyder's insight:
This is a credible source and is used within the industry. Fighting the labels of society and expanding there love for different types of music is always a beautiful scene to me. Sounds don’t see colors and people it resonates with life and situations. We are connected through music by emotions not economical and physical attributes.
