Shropshire singer takes to big US stage

 

Maisy Kay put on a spectacular performance at the United Nations

The documentary is directed by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jean-Michel Cousteau – and she wrote the song after being inspired by the film’s cinematography and message.

She said: “Being a part of this film has been the experience of a lifetime. First, in writing the title track and now having performed the song at the United Nations, I feel so very lucky to be a part of this team. The United Nations SDG program is an important initiative, and one I wholeheartedly support. Our oceans are our greatest resource, it’s important we do everything in our power to help bring awareness to the issues at hand.”

Maisy also studied at Tettenhall College in Wolverhampton before moved to America at the age of 13.

Some of the A-list producers she has worked with include Peter Mokran, Captain Cuts (Ellie Goulding), Adam Argyle and Martin Brammer (Olly Murs), Jason Gaviati, Justin Siegel (Cassadee Pope, Black Eyed Peas), Kenny Harris (Panic! At the Disco), and Sameer Bhattacharya (Flyleaf).

The night was an filled with glitz and glamour as the Trusteeship Conference Room was turned into a 3D world under the ocean with special 3D viewing glasses for the entire audience.

It was transformed into an underwater experience of visual wonder as some of the most interesting sea creatures came to life in 3D.

In addition, co-director Jean-Jacque Mantello and producer François Mantello participated in the opening ceremony and VIP reception afterwards.

Director Jean-Michel Cousteau stated: “The soundtrack is an important component in conveying the movie’s message. We are fortunate to have such beautiful music. When I heard Maisy’s song, I immediately knew it would be a great title song for the film. Maisy Kay is one of the most talented young women I have ever worked with, and her potential seems boundless.”

The film premiered this year at the Cannes Film Festival. Wonders of the Sea 3D is directed by the legendary oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau and Jean-Jacques Mantello and is produced by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Francois Mantello.

Shropshire singing sensation Maisy Kay to sing for United Nations

She’s already taken the US charts by storm and now Shropshire born teenager Maisy Kay has made her feature film debut.

The 18-year-old from Claverley, who now lives in Los Angeles, has composed and performed the title song for the Wonders of the Sea 3D documentary. The movie premiered in Cannes presented by Jean-Michel Cousteau and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Maisy, who attended the former Dower House School in Quatt, near Bridgnorth, before moving on to Tettenhall College in Wolverhampton, moved to America aged 13.

She will now perform her song to the United Nations next week.

“I’ve been a supporter of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for some time and it is important for me to have this amazing opportunity to work with both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jean-Michel Cousteau in order to help raise awareness about the urgent need to protect our oceans,” she said.

“After listening to the beautiful original score of the film composed by Christophe Jacquelin, I was inspired to compose a song that would help convey the important message of the movie,” she added.

“I have sung all my life and I really fell in love with it after seeing a production of Phantom of the Opera in London,” she said.

“When I came to LA aged 13 with my father I was introduced to a few music executives, including Jeff Norskog, who has worked with the likes of Mariah Carey and J-Lo.

“He heard me sing one day and we discussed the possibility of releasing an album.”

When she was just 10 years old she wrote her first musical, The Dragon of Mazura Mist, which was performed as a one-off show at the Dower House as part of the school’s annual summer production.

She was also a member of Bridgnorth Theatre’s Youth on the Steps and took her first LAMDA examination following her lead role in the group’s 2008 production of Olivia.

She completed a West End stage course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, gaining a distinction, which culminated in a performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre.

“I still love musical theatre and it’s definitely something I want to get into in the future,” she said.

“My teacher was definitely impressed with my first musical, especially as I wrote it all myself,” she added.

“My single has received a good review in Vanity Fair and going forward I would like to sing more live.

“Touring the US would be great, and I still love coming back to England.”

Maisy Kay Releases "Beauty and the Beast" cover video duet with CJ Emmons

Singers Pay Tribute To A Tale As Old As Time

Eclectic pop singer Maisy Kay has released a new video to celebrate Disney’s new live-­action Beauty and the Beast film, starring Emma Watson, in theaters today (March 17th). Maisy is joined by Grammy-­nominee and Dancing with the Stars vocalist CJ Emmons for an impassioned, heart-­felt duet of the title song from the original Disney classic.

For Maisy, who fondly remembers dressing up in Disney princess gowns and singing to her dogs, the cover video was a chance to pay tribute to some of the music that was formative to her desire to pursue a career as a musician.

“Ever since I was a little girl, beauty and the beast has held a special spot in my heart. One of the first songs I remember falling in love with was Céline’s take on the song in the end credits. Since that moment, I’ve always wanted to sing my own version of that song and try and do it justice. I am so glad that we finally all got together to make this happen. I got to work with a bunch of talented people throughout this experience, so a big thank you to CJ Emmons, and everyone who made this possible.”

­ Maisy Kay The “Beauty and the Beast” cover follows up Maisy’s recent release of original music, with the haunting “Enough” having recently premiered on Paste Magazine. Maisy is currently writing and recording new music, and preparing for the release of her next original single, “Out Of My Mind” in the weeks ahead.

Maisy Kay wins pretigious ASCAP Foundation Award

Maisy Kay is the 2015 recipient of The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Desmond Child Anthem Award. Kay accepted the prestigious songwriting award during a ceremony last night at New York City’s Lincoln Center, where she also performed the new song “Don’t Ask Me to Love You.”

Kay launched onto the music scene with three tracks in 2015. Her piercing debut single “Blood Filled Tears” (about a close friend’s suicide) garnered immediate praise from outlets such as Vanity Fair and Black Book. The momentum continued to build with the release of second single “Enough” a poetic self-acceptance anthem, which premiered via Yahoo Music. Kay established herself as an avant-garde songstress with her third single “Sleep”. With a flair for the dramatic (think Freddie Mercury does Phantom of the Opera) and lyrics in both Latin and English, “Sleep” captures the beautiful chaos of insomnia.

Maisy Kay is a 16-year-old self-taught pianist whose voice effuses theatricality at some moments and tenderness during others. The UK-born/LA-based songwriter is an iron-lunged powerhouse who crafts complex arrangements that showcase her shimmering, mezzo-soprano vocal range and intimate, confessional lyrics. She is currently in the studio working on new music for 2016. Watch this space!

The ASCAP Foundation Desmond Child Anthem Award was established by Grammy awarding-winning ASCAP songwriter/producer Desmond Child who was inducted into The Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2008 and is known for his collabarations with many big-name pop artists such as KISS, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Cher, Michael Bolton and Ricky Martin during his 30-year tenure at ASCAP. The award was established in 2009 as part of his ManUp4Kids program which provides low-income families the opportunity to attend music, theatre, and cultural events within their community that would otherwise be unattainable, as well as sponsoring instrument rentals, lessons and scholarships to music summer camps. ManUp4Kids helps to give struggling parents the possibility of sharing life changing musical moments and unforgettable memories with their children. The recipient is selected by music industry professionals.
