Immersive exhibit coming to Rock Hall
A new interactive exhibit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is set to open next month. Cleveland.com reports that the “Interactive Garage” exhibit opening July 1 will enable visitors to play instruments on their own, or with friends or strangers at the museum. Visitors can get help with instruments from trained professionals on site.
Rock Hall president and CEO Greg Harris said earlier this year that the museum has been working to create a more immersive, hands-on experience for visitors.
The exhibit opens July 1 and will take up the entire second floor of the museum. It will include keyboards, mixing boards, guitars, drums, studio space and a lounge for playing acoustic instruments.
Rap song inspires autistic boy to sing
An Atlanta rapper’s take on country music has inspired a mostly nonverbal autistic boy in Minnesota to sing.
Lil Nas X has found huge success with the song, “Old Town Road.” It has sparked controversy,, spawned a clothing line, made the rapper a household name and got his collaborator Billy Ray Cyrus a Maserati. Now, it’s being credited for doing more. Cottage Grove, Minnesota, mother Sheletta Brundidge tweeted Tuesday about her family’s “#oldtownroad miracle,” The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported . She filmed her 4-year-old son, Daniel, humming the tune and then singing the lyrics. Now, she says therapists are using the music in his sessions.
Cyrus retweeted the video and Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, tweeted “What a King” in response to the clip.
“Old Town Road” climbed the Billboard charts in April and gained national attention when Billboard removed it from the Hot Country Songs chart, declaring it not country enough. The song has now spent nine weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
