RCA recording artist and American Music Awards winner Hot Chelle Rae stopped by the set of All My Children yesterday  in Stamford, CT for a special performance.

In the scene, AJ Chandler, played by actor Eric Nelsen, asks Hot Chelle Rae to make a special stop to Pine Valley to sing their brand new single “Hung Up” as a surprise for his best friend Miranda Montgomery, played by actress Denyse Tontz. Hot Chelle Rae is AMC’s first musical guest. The episode is slated to stream on Thursday, May 9!

“We’re pumped to be performing on All My Children.  It’s such an iconic show that bridges our parent’s generation with ours. Now that the show is online, we can reach even more people with our music. All of our fans have been loving the song, and it’s cool for these characters on the show to represent our fans,” said lead singer/guitarist Ryan Follesé.

Winners of the 2011 American Music Awards for Best New Artist, Hot Chelle Rae continues to make their mark in the music industry. Their sophomore album, Whatever, featuring the mega-smash hits “Tonight Tonight,” and “I Like It Like That,” sold more than 6 million singles. “Hung Up” is the first single released from their upcoming album which is due out later this year on the RCA label. During 2012, Hot Chelle Rae spent much of the year on a worldwide headlining tour and support dates with Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. On April 1, Hot Chelle Rae premiered their ‘Hung Up” video on the website, VEVO. Hot Chelle Rae is lead singer Ryan Follesé, lead guitarist Nash Overstreet, bassist Ian Keaggy and drummer Jamie Follesé.

These real life musical acts are a great idea…but its nothing too new! I still think PP could succeed much better if they made two versions of each soap…one that is edited and removes the f bomb ect. and graphic sex and nudity for those who dont want it, and an unedited version for those who do. PP wins and so does all the fans!

The idea of showing two soap versions would appease fans on opposite sides of the content debate plus i feel it would also be good for ratings as well because it would attract more fans, especially those who oppose the addition of certain curse worse, nudity and graphic sex scenes. This way both sides can enjoy the show we fought so hard to keep!

Who? Just bring the shows back.. i’ll fast forward past the crap passing as music. Don’t wanna sound like an old foggie, but music died for me about 8 years ago. I know they are making stuff and passing it off as music, but I find music from the 90s, 80s, 70s vastly superior to the crap today.. but then again those people had talent. Music was about something then, and not merchandising.

I new there would plenty of good music on the soaps.. That was their plan 1st time around.
PP, their business is mainly handling huge music stars/bands..
Most likely that is where most of the many came from to take on AMC and OL ..

It is money in PP pocket as they will offer the downloading of the songs probably for .99 a download..
They will continue to promote their stars on the soaps, a great combination!!!

I think the more music the better! I think it’s a great showcase for musicians.

I love that these shows are not going to be the same old tired dog. And I wish people stopped complaining about the additional profanity and sex scenes – these shows were never chaste to begin with. I find it funny that it’s NOW that people are starting to get riled up. I say do whatever you have to do to have these shows stay on and more importantly, bring in new, younger viewers.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
