Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater was founded in 1958 by the dancer, choreographer and visionary Alvin Ailey. Mr. Ailey established a multi-racial repertory company dedicated to presenting works by a variety of choreographers from the past and present. In 2008, after fifty years of performing around the globe, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the Company as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world,” one that celebrates the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance heritage

Grammy Celebration Coast to Coast

Sir Paul Mc Cartney rocks on at 2015 Grammy Awards in LA

Rolling Stone reports: Sir Paul Mc Cartney showed some moves onstage with Kanye and Rihanna, but his best dancing actually occurred earlier in the evening, when he grooved to Jeff Lynne’s (really great) run-through of “Evil Woman.” Macca rose from his seat, clapping and singing along, then worked a lithe little shimmy into the mix before noticing the camera in front of his face, throwing his hands in the air in mock apology and promptly taking his seat. It was a great moment, and not just because it was nice to see someone other than Taylor Swift have a good time at the Grammys. Unlike, say, Pharrell at last year’s show, Paul was considerate enough to think about whoever was sitting directly behind him.

Bobbi Kristina Brown family says goodbye

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family members have reportedly gathered to say goodbye,People reported on Thursday.

The news comes just a few days after the 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub and rushed to hospital in Roswell, Georgia.

“It’s sinking in that this is it, but we’re all still praying that God will intervene and heal her body,” a family member told People.

TMZ, meanwhile, reports that Brown remains on life support and that her father wants to wait until after the weekend to decide what to do.

The last official word from the family came on Tuesday: “Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support.”

A source told ET earlier this week that Brown, who had reportedly been put in a medically induced coma, opened and closed her eyes.

Brown’s hospitalization comes nearly three years after her Grammy-winning mom was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Feb. 11, 2012. She was 48.

Earlier this week, a lawyer for Bobby Brown said that Nick Gordon, whom Brown said she had married, was not officially her husband. Thursday marks Bobby Brown’s 46th birthday.
