A documentary centered around Mary J. Blige‘s recording her thirteenth studio album will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The documentary entitled Mary J. Blige – The London Sessions, chronicles Blige’s writing and recording sessions with Sam Smith, Emeli Sande, and Disclosure. The festival will be held in New York on April 15th through the 26th. The New York native will also perform at the film festival. The other music-based films that will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival include AS I AM: The Life and Times of DJ AM, which is about the life of the late Adam Goldstein, who is professionally known as DJ AM. Goldstein was the first million-dollar DJ in the United States.

A Ballerina’s Tale is a documentary based on the life of Misty Copeland, who was the first African American female soloist at the American Ballet Theatre in New York. Orion: The Man Who Would Be King is a film about record label executives who believe Elvis Presley faked his death, and he is secretly performing as an entertainer named Orion. Orion only performs with a mask on, and he sounds just like Presley. The director and writer of the movie, Jeanie Finlay, said Orion: The Man Who Would Be King is dedicated to those people who still believe Elvis Presley is alive. 

It was recently announced that Elvis Presley’s Graceland will have an exhibit in Las Vegas. The exhibit will have priceless Presley artifacts and memorabilia, which will be on display at The Westgate Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. The Las Vegas Hilton, formerly known as The International, will resemble the same hotel Presley performed at in 1969. The legendary singer signed a million-dollar, one year residency deal to perform at The International, and the original contract will be one of the items displayed at the hotel.

Several items from Presley’s closet will also be viewable at the 28,000 square feet exhibit, including his famed performance attire. A Presley impersonator, along with backup singers and dancers, will also perform at Graceland Las Vegas. They will perform on the same stage Elvis Presley performed on during his residency at The International. For those visitors who want to get married in Las Vegas, there will be an Elvis Presley-inspired wedding chapel at Graceland Las Vegas, too.

FDRMX Eyes: Karate Dancer is an electronic duo based in Ecuador. They’ve released their music video entitled, “Main Roads.”
