Marvin Gaye To Be Considered For 2006 Commemorative U.S. Postage Stamp Legendary Motown singer Marvin Gaye will be considered for a U.S. postage stamp when the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee meets January 22 and 23 in Washington, DC Los Angeles, CA

(PRWEB) January 23 2004--Legendary Motown singer Marvin Gaye will be considered for a commemorative U. S. postage stamp for the year 2006 when the 15-member Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee meets January 22 and 23 in Washington, D.C. The deceased singer is being sponsored for the unique and special honor by the Motown Alumni Association (MAA), Los Angeles chapter. "We began the efforts to get a stamp for Marvin Gaye last June," says Ron Brewington, chapter Executive Director. "Those efforts included a worldwide petition and letter writing campaign which garnered thousands of signatures of support." The MAA chapter had hopes of getting a stamp for Gaye in April, 2004, which would have been his 65th birthday. "But the U.S. Postal Service and the Postmaster General, on the recommendation of the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee selects stamp recipients far in advance of the issue date in order to provide time for planning, design, production and distribution," says Brewington. "They had already made their selections for 2004 and 2005."

This prompted the MAA chapter to extend their campaign, soliciting support from politicians in Los Angeles, Washington, DC and Detroit, Michigan. "The Los Angeles City Council, on the recommendation of Councilman Bernard Parks, gave a unanimous passage of a resolution, which was also endorsed by L.A. Mayor James Hahn," says Brewington. "A resolution introduced by Los Angeles County Supervisor Yvonne Brathwaite Burke before the L.A. County Board of Supervisors was also unanimously passed." Support for the legendary singer also came from Calif. State Assemblyman Mark Ridley-Thomas and Calif. State Senator Kevin Murray, in whose respective districts Gaye lived before his death in 1984. The campaign also received unprecedented support from several hundred celebrities in a concurrent endorsement campaign, "Stars For Marvin," spearheaded by actor Cylk Cozart and conducted by Brewington. A partial list of celebrity supporters include: James Brown (singer), Smokey Robinson (singer), Burt Bacharach (songwriter/producer) Quincy Jones (producer), Muhammad Ali (boxer),Lou Rawls (singer),Paul McCartney (singer/producer) , Wayne Newton (singer),Dick Clark (producer),Nancy Wilson (singer),Pat Boone (singer), Della Reese (singer),Ben Vereen (singer/dancer),Harvey Fuqua (singer),Nancy Sinatra (singer), Issac Hayes (singer),Otis Williams (singer/founder, "The Temptations"),Usher (singer), Dionne Warwick (singer),India.Arie (singer),Snoop Dogg (rapper),R.

Spyder D and Spydo Music, Inc. Sign an Ambitious Distribution Deal for Newtroit Records Spydo Music's Duane "Spyder" Hughes inks distribution deal for ambitious label project. (PRWEB) March 21, 2006 -- Pioneering New York rap producer/artist Spyder D signs distribution deal with TOFA/Empire Musicwerks/Universal Records. Everyone knows about rap music's introduction to the world via the Fatback Band's King Tim III, and the phenom of the Sugar Hill Gang's Rapper's Delight. Very few know that one of New York City's pioneer rap artists, "Spyder D", Duane Hughes of Queens, NY City was going to school in Ypsilanti, Michigan, on the campus of Eastern Michigan University in 1978

when he met Billy Motley (now known as Billy Wilson, president of the Motown Alumni Association), a bass player and Rueben Jones, a drummer, of a young group of musicians who formed "Frosted".

Neither of them knew that their collaboration together, would combine the raw talent that would produce one of the top 12" singles of it's era, the "electro funk" smash "Big Apple Rappin'/Rapple", which even today, is one of the most bootlegged vinyl offerings in the history of recorded music, still fetching upwards of $300 on eBay. No one knew that at the time, the group collaboration was the launching of the Motor City into the HipHop world. Today, there is the brilliant lyricist known as Eminem, and his protégé’s D-12 hailing from Motown. And there's the Hip-Hop influenced rock sound of Kid Rock. It's a safe bet to say that that all started with a collaboration of a New York City street ball player, frustrated that his basketball career was rapidly ending with knee problems, and, according to Billy, "a group of young musicians who had grew up heavily influenced by the sounds of Motown in it's heyday." Spyder reflected on the moment by saying, "... It is one of the times in one's life, where you're at a crossroad, and you get very creative because your back is up against the wall. We went into the studio with no rehearsal, and no real game plan other than to vibe with each other and see what we come up with. I was home sick so I wrote about New York. I hummed out the base line to Billy who took the basics of it and funked it the way Motowners know how to do it. I spliced in a sound effects recording of a Delancey street vendor on the intro, and, bam! Big Apple Rappin' with the Motown flair was born." Spyder, not quite twenty years old yet, with Detroit born and raised Tito Lewis, and his Mom's financial backing, launched Newtroit Records first and only single. "We got a lot of notoriety from that single right off the bat" recalls Spyder. A young Tom Silverman (who became Tommy Boy Records founder) published a strong review in his Dance Music Magazine and, "Afrika Bambaata came to my crib on Jamaica Avenue in search of a new record deal with Newtroit, as he was unhappy with his deal with Winley Records. To this day my mother and Bam always ask about each other", says Spyder, who now owns an ABA basketball franchise in Charlotte, and his Spydo Music Incorporated music production and wireless company. Now that's Hip-Hop history for you!

Under this new umbrella of TOFA/Empire Musicwerks/Universal, Spyder will release his farewell to HipHop, a CD simply titled "Legendary". Scheduled guest appearances include legendary peers such as Doug E. Fresh, C&C Music Factory's Freedom Williams, Chuck D, Mikey D, Large Professor, Grand Daddy I.U., Sweety G, Roxanne Shante and Sparky D to name a few. Spyder says, "we will also launch careers of the new generation with a compilation album called "Spyder D presents Krunk, Funk and Soul", that will feature several "unsigned hype" type of artists in the Hip-Hop/R&B genre. We also have a powerful contemporary gospel group in Keith Holland & Friends in Christ, and Charlotte's own Young G.O.D.Z., and Gary Graham's North Clik Records posse who put the capital K in Krunk." we will also launch careers of the new generation with a compilation album called Spyder has requested the services of good friend and longtime record promotion guru Al Pizarro of VIP Record Pool and Heavy Rotation of New York to be his VP of Operations. "Al's experience in record promotion is well documented over the years, and I trust his judgment completely. He has handled NY area promotions for all the major labels for their artists in the New York area for years. We are blessed that he would consider helping us in our quest to be one of the top major independents."

Production will be handled by himself, the artists, and a bevy of up and coming beat makers, including former Sparky D DJ, Grand Creator K-Wiz, and the legendary Infinity Machine DJ, DJ Divine, and the incomparable Larry Smith, who produced all of the early Run-DMC and Whodini hits. "We will get together with musicians and artists in Detroit to bring Newtroit back full circle", says Spyder. "Mike Pierre and Billy Wilson will oversee the marketing and promotion for the projects. That will be perfect as I continue to seek out more talent. "Through 19 Communications and my wireless division, we will evolutionize how artists are introduced to radio and potential fans. Radio and music listeners will be able to use "Push and Pull" technology to communicate with their favorite artist or radio station. Tour schedules, release dates and contests will be sent to fans' wireless devices. They will control how much content, and when to receive that content. Virtual Promotion Campaigns will be sent and received in real time. Text, text to voice messaging with simultaneous landline and e-mail alerts will take these vertical industries by storm! Spydo Music and Newtroit Records, through TOFA/Empire Musicwerks/Universal, will offer 19 Levels of communications through branded pre-paid phones, debit cards and sponsored messaging. The first release date for this distribution deal has not been announced yet.

Through this joint venture, the development of a 28-song double compact disc, featuring Stillman students paired with various legendary artists, writers, producers and engineers of Motown is planned. This agreement will also provide interactivity through performance, writing, production and entertainment business of many of the celebrated Motown artists, as well as business executives within the Motown Alumni Association, Inc., family.

Also, if a student exhibits exceptional talent and abilities, special consideration will be given to the student for the awarding of the same type of recording agreement with a major record label of whom the Motown Alumni Association, Inc., has an active structured agreement with. “It is an honor and a privilege for Stillman College to be selected to receive this grant. I am so excited to see what wonderful work is created because of it,” said McPherson.

Eminem Lawsuit May Raise Pay for Older Artists By BEN SISARIO Published: March 27, 2011 http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/28/business/media/28eminem.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0#h[ ]

The most closely watched lawsuit in the music industry asks this question: how much should a song on iTunes or another digital music service be worth to the performer? The artist at the center of the suit is Eminem, but some of the biggest beneficiaries of the case may be thousands of older artists who have not released an album in decades. Four years ago, the producers who discovered Eminem sued his record label, the Universal Music Group, over the 15821 Stout Ypsilanti, Michigan 48223 ▪ (734) 972-7582 ▪ email: Mybillybilly@yahoo.com ▪ twitter @ BillyjWilson Facebook @ MotownAlumniAssociation MotownAlumniAssociation.com DBA – Michigan – EIN#: 45-4462261


way royalties are computed for digital music, which boils down to whether an individual song sold online should be considered a license or a sale. The difference is far from academic because, as with most artists, Eminem’s contract stipulates that he gets 50 percent of the royalties for a license but only 12 percent for a sale. “As of now it’s worth $17 million or $20 million, but on a future accounting basis, five or 10 years from now, it could easily be a $40 million to $50 million issue,” said Joel Martin, the manager of F.B.T. Productions in Detroit, which first signed Eminem and continues to collect royalties on his music. (Marshall Mathers himself, who performs as Eminem, was not a party to the suit, although he stands to earn millions from it.) The suit reached its apparent end last week when the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal, letting stand a lower court’s decision that digital music should be treated as a license. Lawyers and music executives say that few younger artists are likely to be affected by the decision because since the early 2000s record companies have revised most of their contracts to include digital sales among an artist’s record royalties. Eminem’s first contract was signed in 1995.

Many older artists, however, whose contracts predate digital music and have not been renegotiated, stand to profit significantly from the decision. “This is life-changing,” said Joyce Moore, the wife of Sam Moore of Sam & Dave, the duo that had hits in the 1960s like “Soul Man.” “If we were being paid a nickel a download, as opposed to 35 cents — that’s a huge amount of money for a guy that is on a fixed income or has to run up and down the road at 75 years old.” The lawsuit argued that record companies’ arrangements with digital retailers resembled a license more than it did a sale of a CD or record because, among other reasons, the labels furnished the seller with a single master recording that it then duplicated for customers. “Unlike physical sales, where the record company manufactures each disc and has incremental costs, when they license to iTunes, all they do is turn over one master,” said Richard S. Busch, a lawyer for F.B.T. and Mr. Martin’s company, Em2M. “It’s only fair that the artist should receive 50 percent of the receipts.” A federal jury ruled in favor of Universal in 2009, but that decision was overturned on appeal last year. The label

petitioned to the Supreme Court, which declined to hear the case. Universal said the implications of the decision were limited. “The case has always been about one agreement with very unique language,” the company said in a statement. “As it has been made clear during this case, the ruling has no bearing on any other recording agreement and does not create any legal precedent.” Although current hits get more attention, older music still represents a huge portion of overall music sales, and over time durable hits can rack up significant sales. Last year there were 648.5 million downloads of “catalog” singles in the United States, meaning songs more than 18 months old, compared with 523 million for current tracks, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Fred Wilhelms, a lawyer in Nashville who specializes in collecting royalties for musicians, said that sales of older music had provided the labels with steady income at low cost. “The labels make tens of millions of dollars a year from the deep catalog without paying a penny in promotion costs,” 15821 Stout Ypsilanti, Michigan 48223 ▪ (734) 972-7582 ▪ email: Mybillybilly@yahoo.com ▪ twitter @ BillyjWilson Facebook @ MotownAlumniAssociation MotownAlumniAssociation.com DBA – Michigan – EIN#: 45-4462261


said Mr. Wilhelms, who estimates that the Eminem ruling might apply to tens of thousands of artists. “Anybody who ended their recording career before 1978, and probably before 1992, is in the decision,” he added. Royalty rates vary, but today most acts get 10 to 15 percent of their music’s net sales, minus packaging and other deductions, lawyers say. In the 1970s and before, the rates were often even lower. But for decades, licenses of music — to movies, television or other third parties — gave artists a 50 percent share, without the same deductions, on the principle that a third party was bearing the relevant costs. Jason M. Schultz, an assistant professor of law at the University of California, Berkeley, who helped write a friend of the court brief on behalf of the Motown Alumni Association — a group that represents Motown acts but is not associated with the label — said that recording contracts made in the early days of digital music reflected the labels’ failure to recognize that technology’s potential. “The record companies would strike these deals with artists in a way that favored them,” Mr. Schultz said. “But when the digital revolution came around, those contracts ended up favoring artists. The record companies guessed wrong.” 15821 Stout Ypsilanti, Michigan 48223 ▪ (734) 972-7582 ▪ email: Mybillybilly@yahoo.com ▪ twitter @ BillyjWilson Facebook @ MotownAlumniAssociation MotownAlumniAssociation.com DBA – Michigan – EIN#: 45-4462261


Although sales of digital music around the world now represent 29 percent of record companies’ revenue, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, the Eminem case, and several others like it, stem from the mid-2000s, when the potential value of digital music was first becoming clear. According to court papers, the Eminem case had its origins in an audit of accounting records that F.B.T. and the rapper conducted in 2005, two years after Apple opened the iTunes store. In separate cases, the Allman Brothers have sued Universal and Sony BMG Music Entertainment over similar contractual issues. The Sony case, filed in 2006, was expanded to a class-action suit, and earlier this month the parties informed the judge in the case that they had “reached an agreement in principle.” (The Allman Brothers and Cheap Trick, which joined the case, both settled their claims.) The Allmans’ suit against Universal, filed in 2008, is still pending. For million-selling acts like Eminem and the Allman Brothers, the stakes are high. But plenty of other artists stand to gain from the decision as well.

“For people who had a single hit, who couldn’t afford to chase $100 in owed royalties,” Mr. Wilhelms said, “they are now looking at a couple thousand. It’s worth a couple phone calls and an angry letter or two.”
