My son lives and works in Phoenix. He has been to this place lots of times.
He is turning 30 this year so he hangs out with one of the demographics Jackie would like to attach. In fact, recently he traveled somewhere in the region with his friends for one of those event concerts.
This is also within 6 days of my birthday! Maybe I should have him treat me to a visit and a trip!
BTW, someone needs to contact Danny Zelisko to have the YouTube samples changed to links to Jackie's YouTube channel.
This gives her more views plus eliminates all the "Not Available" and others loaded YouTube videos.
It also eliminates the "ancient" YouTube videos so people can see her as the 19 year-old she is. She is trying to get college age crowd.
BTW, Arizona State University is a stone's throw away in Tempe (my son graduated from ASU and now works for the world's largest 3rd party NetSuite provider). That is a mere 96,000+ enrolled students of a demographic she wants.
Promote, promote, promote here as Jackie can now be presented as one of them!
Her team has to push promotion into this demographic. She now is part of this key demographic. She is gorgeous. Her voice is insanely gorgeous.
Promote. Promote. Promote into this key demographic!
She gets hooked into this demographic and her name gets self-promoted like wildfire!
Push her YouTube videos that are of songs that can resonant with this demographic. She now has a sufficient quantity of them.
This is frustrating as hell. I have to see if I can get some of my Hollywood friends interested. And those involved with high-end music which included KISS and Justin Haywood of The Moody Blues and Roger Taylor of Queen and Elton John. This is nuts. She is the perfect age to begin a serious promotional effort.
Crazy or not? Phoenix and Las Vegas are 8 days apart. You could do a "Grand Circle" trip in between and see a bunch of national parks and monuments. Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Arches, Canyon Lands, Bryce, Zion, and more... 1100 miles of driving and Jackie would bookend all of that scenery. Unfortunately that's also a week before I'll be spending a lot of time in South Carolina.
I have already sent two Contact messages asking that this be fixed three weeks ago. Nothing has been done even though in one of them I suggested to use mostly Jackie's YouTube channel for the links. These will not be taken down and will give Jackie some views.
Having a dozen or more contact messages to get this fixed would be much more effective than just me.
I suggested that they pick 4 of Jackie's audio links for her new album The Debut to replace the essentially ancient Dream With Me links. The Burn link cannot be used here because it goes to the video so I put it for Watch. I suggested to use:
She Used To Be Mine (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu7WzTFjgc4) A Million Dreams (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQfzbCYNDGM) Whispering (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_NcsImJDSk) Once Upon A December (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdoaDY8Bq6A)
For the Watch, they have 11 YouTube links (6 of which cannot be viewed). I suggested that they use the links for:
Burn (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDrM8-AXI3g) Writing's On The Wall (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBjsDhqRMOA) Apocalypse (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1iM3hOKFdg) Blank Space acoustic cover (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SC4sfxJK3g8) Pedestal (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrPOHYFO-TM) Safe & Sound (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfP1IMOlt_8) All of the Stars (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmmSYvShuCc) Caruso (Live) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arhijZEgCmw) Attesa (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHOP-dmRSo8) AGT Champions 2019 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CM1KN7zT3lE) Jackie Evancho Returns And AMAZES Again On World's Got Talent 2019! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCqZ2t9mG58)
The above are a nice selection of what Jackie sings now as a teenager. They also tie into Jackie some songs that the broad general public, especially teenagers to young adults, can identify with. Plus Jackie has put at least one common "rock/pop" song into her present concert (Queen's Somebody to Love).
As I noted before, there are almost 100,000 students registered at Arizona State University. Jackie needs to sell into that market. Phoenix, Arizona is the fifth largest city in the US with 1,626,000 population (only New York, LA, Chicago and Houston are bigger). Putting a selection of music that at least a few can be related to by these mostly twenty somethings at ASU and in Phoenix in general makes sense from a marketing point of view.
Who the hell can expect people in their 20's to get excited by seeing videos of a little girl singing. Just will not happen.
Whoever thought the original selection of links made sense should be fired.
rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner a couple of hours ago. Brandie and Sampson are sleeping on the loveseat. Phoenix is sleeping in on my bed. I am watching football and munching raw broccoli. Broccoli has lots of vitamin C. It is good for winter.

rickolsen: It was 38 degrees today. 40 years ago it would have been 0 or lower. We have less than 6 inches of snow on the ground. 40 years ago we would have had at least 4 feet. Michigan winters are vastly different from what they were in the 60's.

rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner awhile ago. Phoenix is sleeping on the couch. Sampson is in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat. I'm watching football. I made spaghetti today and I'm having some for supper with parmesan cheese. I like it.

rickolsen: I ordered my aftershave on ebay like I always do. Bay Rum. I like the smell of it. I had to go to the post office to pick it up. One bottle was leaking. I get 2 at a time. About half the bottle was gone. This is the only problem I have ever had with ebay.
Jan 28, 2020 17:29:06 GMT -5
rickolsen: I take it back. Once I got a bucket of cat litter and it had no handle. That wasn't ebay's fault. That was the shipper. Really my aftershave wasn't ebay's fault either. Shipping accidents sometimes happen. I still love ebay and will continue to use them.

rickolsen: I'm munching corn chips and watching football. I like corn chips better than potato chips. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. Brandie is preening herself on the love seat. She will be sleeping soon. I have a good life. I love my cats.
Jan 31, 2020 22:40:10 GMT -5
rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping, so all 3 of my cats are sleeping now. I gave them gravy dinner about an hour ago. I'm watching a good football game. Peyton Manning is creaming Arizona. I'm going to eat a couple of cucumbers now. They are so good.

rickolsen: I got some Greek pasta salad, cole slaw, and deviled egg potato salad today. The Greek pasta salad has lots of feta cheese. I love feta cheese. I gave my cats some gravy dinner a while ago. They will be sleeping soon. I'm eating Greek pasta salad.
Feb 1, 2020 13:33:56 GMT -5
rickolsen: My cole slaw is gone. I've got half the Greek pasta salad and potato salad left. I'm not supposed to eat pasta or potatoes, but my doctor said I can eat them in moderation. When you are diabetic you can't eat anything good or cheap. I eat what I want.

rickolsen: My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat here in the livingroom with me. I'm watching football and munching corn chips. If you like corn chips get Great Value corn chips at Walmart. They are really good.

rickolsen: It is 10:00 am. My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the love seat. I didn't give them gravy dinner because they didn't ask for it. When they do I will give it to them. I'm watching football.
Feb 3, 2020 10:02:55 GMT -5
rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Prime filet chicken. They like that kind. They are gobbling it down. They will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping on the love seat. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. I'm watching football. Almost all of our snow is melted away.

rickolsen: My brother died yesterday. We weren't close. Now I'm the only son of 4 left. All 3 of my cats are on my desk. They came to see me.
Feb 10, 2020 16:54:26 GMT -5
Willyiam: May your Brother RIP!!
Feb 14, 2020 8:31:08 GMT -5
rickolsen: Thanks. I haven't seen, or spoken to my brother since my biological mother's funeral in 2009. I was adopted and didn't meet my biological family until 20 years ago when I was 44. We were never close. I see my biological father once in awhile.

rickolsen: One of my sisters found me. I didn't go looking for them. My cats are all sleeping. I'm watching football, and I'm hungry, so I'm making a big pot of stew. Of course it has mushrooms and lots of garlic.
Feb 18, 2020 18:37:03 GMT -5
rickolsen: My stew is so good I wish I could share it with you. I'm glad Agog suggested I cook my own food. I'm a good cook, it's cheaper, tastes better, and it's better for you. I love to cook so it works out perfectly.
Feb 18, 2020 18:55:35 GMT -5
rickolsen: I would cook for my cats, but they need cat food from the store. It has all the minerals and nutrients they need including taurin for good health. You should resist the temptation to feed your cat or dog people food. Give them the pet food they need.
Feb 18, 2020 19:05:10 GMT -5
rickolsen: All 3 of my cats are in the livingroom with me. Brandie is on the loveseat. Phoenix is on the arm of the arm chair and Sampson is on the couch. Today is trash day. I have to run a few errands and then I'm going to put out my trash.
