Italian Scientologist Elena Roggero

Elena Roggero is a fantastic vocalist. She is a petit girl but with a powerful and aesthetic voice. I've seen her perform several times and she just takes over the stage. She's the sort of performer you can't take your eyes off, she's so lively and energetic. She is very active in the Church of Scientology in Italy

James Barbour Get Excellent Review

The LA Times gave a great review of last Sunday's performance of "Camelot" at the Hollywood Bowl with a subtitle of "Jeremy Irons' King Arthur cedes musical honors to James Barbour's Lancelot." The reviewer also described James vocal work as , "gloriously resonant" and went on to say, "Loping across the stage with casual, athletic confidence, Barbour's Lancelot quickly established himself as head jock among the knights, and when the singer opened his rich, ringing bass-baritone to full power during 'If Ever I Would Leave You,' his amplified voice must have been audible even to the tourists down on Hollywood Boulevard."

Scientologist Erika Christensen

Erika Christensen's career took off after her highly acclaimed performance in the movie "Traffic". Since then she has consistently delivered outstanding performances in such movies as "The Upside of Anger" and "The Perfect Score". My daughter described her performance in "Swimfan" as "extremely scary" which is a high complement. Her next movie is "Flight Plan" where she stars with Jodie Foster. Erika is a big supporter of the Narconon drug rehabilitation and education program. Her web site tells you lots more about her: Erika Christensen

Juliette and the Licks

I just got the Juliette and the Licks album "You're Speaking My Language"! It's great. This band really rocks. Juliette makes a great front man (woman), she has the presence of a real pro. The band are excellent musicians and the production is very good, what more can I say? Except maybe: Go get it!
