Next year will mark forty years since soul music endured one of its most tragic losses with the death of St. Louis native Donny Hathaway. But Tuesday night at the Pageant, Lalah Hathaway proved that her father’s legacy lives on as an extension of her own.Her career has spanned nearly three times as long as her father’s at this point. She entered the crowded scene of 90s R&B at the turn of the decade as a teen with a rich contralto with maturity far beyond her young age.
“When you start to let those walls down and you see a person for who they are, then we all start to feel humanity towards each other,” said Jos N. Banks, star of the national tour of “Kinky Boots.” “No one wants to walk around in a society where we all feel unwanted and we have to hide our true selves.”The musical lands at Peabody Opera House this weekend (January 13-14) and when Banks suits up as Lola it is a spiritual experience for him.“I’m very religious, so every show before I go out on...
“Tumbling was just something I did for fun,” said Sydney “Iking” Bateman. “I never thought it would take me anywhere.”The intricate flips he mastered in his northside neighborhood as a child have taken him all over the globe – and will continue to do so thanks to a new contract with Cirque du Soleil.For his last stop before he headed to Canada for training with the world’s premier circus performance troupe last month, Bateman was back where it all began for him.
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".
