“Here Now (Madness)” was recorded “on the doorstep of the Garden Tomb right below where many believe Golgotha was,” though in the YouTube description, they also add, “We realize this may or may not be Jesus' actual tomb—but the reality—it is EMPTY!”

Yet another reason to regret not sticking with your music lessons in elementary school.

Solange recently posted an official call on her website for New Orleans-based musicians between 18-35 interested in joining her band. The call asks interested parties to submit a three-minute video demonstrating their skills and is open to vocalists, guitarists and keyboardists.

Having grown up in Texas, the artist has always been supportive of local musicians and filmed many of her videos throughout New Orleans and Louisiana, bringing black southern culture to the forefront her work.
