Larry Junstrom was a founding member and bass player for Lynyrd Skynyrd before he earned his fame as a member of the seminal southern rock outfit, 38 Special. He played in the band from 1976 until he retired from touring in 2014. "I feel the loss of Ginger Baker on a personal level. I’m told that I was first to play Blind Faith on air for Houston radio,” said SuiteRadio COO, Pat Fant. “We’re seeing a wave of superstar losses that are happening way too fast. We’re ready to pay tribute using Long Live Rock as a platform to bring happy memories to all who listen." Each tribute features 6 songs with nationally recognized radio personality Donna Mackenzie sharing stories of these two rock icons. The shows are fully produced and played together offer an hour’s worth of programming that includes all local commercial time available for radio stations to sell.

"Jennifer Hudson is the defining voice of this generation," said Mr. Reid.  "Her award-winning presence on records, in film, and on stage establishes her as one of the premiere artists to emerge in this century.  I'm enjoying collaborating with my friend and mentor Clive Davis on Jennifer's first Epic album and excited for her fans to hear what we're up to...all will be revealed soon!" "I signed Jennifer in 2007 believing her to be the strongest candidate as the next generation's Aretha Franklinand Whitney Houston," said Mr. Davis. "She has become that, as LA and I excitingly reunite to capture Jennifer at her all time best." "I couldn't be more excited to embark on this new chapter with two of the most prolific musical legends of this generation," said Ms. Hudson. "There is no doubt that this is just the beginning of a very special collaboration and I know that the result will be something unforgettable. I am looking forward to the creative process and sharing new music very soon!" Multi-platinum global superstar Jennifer Hudson, whose tribute at the 54th annual Grammy Awards® in 2012 toWhitney Houston (the day after her death) was an iconic, heartbreaking, musical event, gave the BET Awards ceremony its climactic moment with "Purple Rain," singing in front of an orchestra led by Stevie Wonder on keyboards and Tori Kelly.  Adding to the occasion, Ms. Hudson was wearing the same memorable white hooded tunic that Prince wore the last time he was at the awards spectacular.  See the performance HERE:https://www.bet.com/video/betawards/2016/performances/stevie-wonder-tori-kelly-jennifer-hudson-prince-tribute.html.
