Vanessa Hudgens brought the energy as a co-host to ABC's Oscars Red Carpet Show interviewing stars as they arrive for the 94th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. She chatted with anyone you can think of from her tick, tick...BOOM! co-star Andrew Garfield to Best Actress nominee Nicole Kidman. Vanessa brought the joy and hype to the pre-show event that got us ready for the big night. Before channeling her hosting persona, she went through rehearsals and was so excited she even called her mom, Gina to show her what she's up to.

The Governors Ball Music celebrated its 10th Anniversary at Citi Field in New York City. The full line up had headliners like Billie Eilish, A$AP Rocky, J Balvin, and Post Malone. Two Filipino artists, Dominic Fike and Yeek also took the stage right beside some of the biggest names in music.
The Governors Ball Music Festival is a multi-day music festival that launched in 2011. The festival features an array of genres and styles of music, including rock, electronic, hip-hop, indie, Americana, pop, folk, and more. Aside from from music, the festival features a multitude of popular New York restaurants and food trucks, as well as activities and games.
Dominic Fike peformed on the Barcardi Stage while Yeek took over the Grubhub Stage. Check out some of the photos from the weekend!
Yeek made it to the big stage after releasing 2 albums and 2 EPs. From wanting to work alone to collaborating with other artists, his DIY approach created an evocative, guitar-driven portraits of youthful wandering and wondering. It definitely such a cool moment to see him performing again in front of a live audience.
Born and raised in Florida, he learned how to play the guitar by the age of 10. He released several tracks through SoundCould and started gaining an audience. Fike then released his debut EP, Don't Forget About Me, Demos. His song "3 Nights" reached the top ten in multiple countries. He later collaborated with the band Brockhampton and singer Halsey.
2020 was a big year for him. Fike released the singles "Chicken Tenders" and "Politics & Violence" then came out with the debut album, What Could Possibly Go Wrong. In the same year, he also headlined for a concert series in Fortnite. NME included Fike on their list of essential new artists for 2020 and he was featured on Paul McCartney's song "The Kiss of Venus" for the album McCartney III Imagined.
Born in New Jersey, Yeek spent his first decade living in a large Filipino community. Then he moved to South Florida, where he wasn’t just the new kid in town but one of the only Asian people outside his family. Bonding with kids who wanted to make music, he found a place for himself by joining punk and hardcore bands, and rapping.
His sound is totally contemporary and genre agnostic, but still grounded in what can be done in a bedroom with a microphone and some instruments. The L.A.-based singer-songwriter handled producing, recording, mixing, and mastering by himself. Because his songs are personal and resistant to genre classification, this method suited him. Yeek produced nearly all of the album Valencia, its ten songs are powered by community. He came off his first headlining tour in Europe in 2019 and he decided to recommit to working with the people closest to him. “My priority is putting on the people I’ve grown up with,” Yeek says. “I feel that better art comes from working with family and friends. Otherwise, it’s making art via email.”

Us by Ruby Ibarra, featuring Rocky Rivera, Klassy, and Faith Santilla: This is one baaad sistah! She not only wrote and performed the rhymes, but managed to direct the song’s video, too. In this harrowing time when Asian Americans are targets of violence and our women are murdered and remain nameless for days, I see this song and video as a needed statement. This is woman power, Pinay power, “don't mess with me” power. And in the video, I love how they seamlessly weaved tradition with the contemporary, with a passion. —Nobuko Miyamoto, songwriter, Great Leap/Smithsonian Folkways
Like a G6 by Far East Movement, featuring The Cataracs, DEV: I chose this song for a couple of reasons: Every time I heard it in clubs and on the radio I was filled with such pride that a group of Asian Americans had a hit record. Combine that with what Far East Movement has done for the culture and their continued support of Asian/Asian-American music, I knew they had to be on this playlist. Plus, the song is just fire! —Marisa Pizarro, SVP, A&R Def Jam, Universal Music Group
How You Like That by Blackpink: In general, this song captures how I feel about those who wish to bring us down. It represents how we can prevail over these current times as well as focus on the positives of our communities. —Theresa Kang, CEO, Blue Marble Pictures
Chicken Adobo by Guapdad 4000 and !llmind: GRAMMY-nominated Guapdad 4000 and GRAMMY-award winning producer !llmind team up to create “Chicken Adobo,” which will be heard for generations to come. Released during the pandemic, the song not only shares a message of home-cooked, soul-filling love, but also helps raise awareness for chicken adobo, served at family-owned restaurants across the world to a growing multicultural audience. The duo’s 1176album represents the new MYXed generation that celebrates diversity and similarities at a time that we need it the most. —Roslynn Alba Cobarrubias, global head of talent, MYX Global, ABS-CBN; founder, ROS. Marketing
The Kiss of Venus (Paul McCartney) by Dominic Fike: Dominic reimagines a McCartney recording, effortlessly shifting the original focus of astrology to shedding light on current affairs. His infectious rendition compels the listener to ponder on various narratives set by the news. He vocalizes, “Have you read the Paper? People talking about which side they’re taking... what’s your take on it?” In a world where people clamor to any given narrative, I love the idea of questioning the status quo and forming your own opinions. —Byron Atienza, VP, global creative, Capitol Music Group
Somewhere Over the Rainbow-What a Wonderful World by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole: The song’s opening dedication to slack-key legend Gabby Pahinui always tugged at my heart. Even before I knew who “Gabby” was, I was moved by how the artist pays tribute to someone of obvious personal significance to him. Then there’s the `ukulele—it makes two familiar songs sound completely unique. Finally, Iz’s voice and pronunciations remind me of my family in Hawaiʻi and my dad—a certain lilt that says, comfort and home. This is the sound of gratitude, longing and hope.—Lisa Sasaki, interim director, Smithsonian American Women's History Museum
Dominic Fike released a cover of Paul McCartney's The Kiss of Venus along with a music video. The song is part of the album, McCartney III Reimagined, which released on April 16th. The album compiles remixes of the album McCartney III that released last winter. Dominic Fike puts a R&B twist on the track along with other artists adding their own flavors. There's a youthfulness to this reimagined album.
With Dominic taking the reins on his track, the whole project is the definition of collaboration. Although the original album is a recent release, the previous Beatle bridges the gap between generations and artists from then and now. The 78-year-old Sir McCartney himself makes a cameo at the end of the video, seated on a bench outside London. He whistles the tune as the camera zooms in the scene. He slowly lowers the paper to reveal a different look. Then he raises his eyebrows and grins.
ABOUT DOMINIC FIKE Dominic combines elements of alternative hip-hop and pop. A native of Naples, Florida, he signed with a Sandy Boys and Columbia Records in 2018 even before releasing music. The debut EP, Don't Forget About Me, Demos released later the same year.
