Over the last few weeks, airlines (cough, United
) haven’t been the subject of a lot of good news. Over the weekend, however, something good did actually happen on a flight. According to a report from TMZ
, Kenny G
was on a Delta flight from Tampa to Los Angeles, and one of the flight attendants announced that they were raising money for Relay for Life.
Passenger Chuck Cave
told ABC Action News
that the singer agreed to perform if passengers donated $1,000. They raised up to $2,000, and Kenny G delivered. Cave said that “everyone was happy the whole flight.”
Delta also tweeted to thank him:

The rapper’s new album shot to No. 1 on the strength of sales of the full album. John Mayer opened at No. 2.
The project, the Global Jukebox, has more than 6,000 songs from 1,000 cultures — including many songs from Lomax’s personal collection.
Chef José Andrés
recently settled his lawsuit
with President Donald Trump
, but that doesn’t mean he’s done with him. Today, he posted a rap song to his Twitter account in an attempt to talk to the President about immigration reform:
The song begins, “Hello Mr. President, hello. Are you ready to pass, finally, immigration reform?”
Andrés uses the rest of the minute-long masterpiece to try to convince Trump to “Take care of every single man living on American soil / Every single woman contributing to bring food to your plate.” He also asked fellow chefs Eric Ripert
, Anthony Bourdain
(who is no fan
of Trump’s himself), and Tom Colicchio
to join in and make their own rap songs. Listen to his above.

Four years after her debut album, the pop prodigy is back with a testimonial to heartbreak and solitude.
British DJ Paul Oakenfold
is changing the game. According to AFP
, the 53-year old has reached Base Camp at Mount Everest, and Tuesday he’ll begin what’s known as the “highest party in the world” and perform a DJ set on the way to the top of the world’s highest peak.
It took four months of training and ten days of walking for Oakenfold to get to Base Camp. On the phone, he told the AFP, “I’m not going to pretend it was easy to get here… but it has been a wonderful trek. If you could see the view I’m looking at, it is very inspiring.”
