The diminutive soprano with the huge vocal range enjoys delivering the traditional. “I love those classic songs,” McBride said. “They stand up to the test of time.”“Silver Bells,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Silent Night” and “Do You Hear What I Hear” are some of the standards which McBride usually adds to her set list. “I don’t think there is a greater time than Christmas,” McBride said.
There is nothing more that Taking Back Sunday bassist Shaun Cooper looks forward to than the band’s “Holiday Spectacular” at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville. However, Cooper knew that he might miss the third annual event, which was held in 2016 at the Sayreville venue. “My then-pregnant wife was due right around the show dates,” Cooper said while calling from his Long Island home. “She went into labor during the first show date and delivered that day.
The Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s founder, Paul O’Neill, had big plans for the prog-rock ensemble, known for delivering dramatic Christmas music and vibrant concerts “We’re going to take this show to the next level,” O’Neill said in an interview a year ago. “I can’t talk about it now, but just wait. It’s going to blow your mind.” O’Neill, the group’s founder, died in April at the age or 61 after an accidental drug overdose from prescribed medications for chronic illnesses.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
