DJ Earworm has done it again! Here is a video of a mashup of the top 25 songs of 2011!

Adele – Rolling In The Deep
Adele – Someone Like You
Black Eyed Peas – Just Can’t Get Enough
Bruno Mars – Grenade
Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song
Britney Spears – Till The World Ends
Cee Lo Green – F* You
Enrique Iglesias – Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You)
Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks
Jennifer Lopez – On The Floor
Jeremih feat. 50 cent – Down On Me
Katy Perry – Firework
Katy Perry – E.T.
Katy Perry – Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)
Lady Gaga – Born This Way
LMFAO – Party Rock Anthem
LMFAO – Sexy and I Know It
Lupe Fiasco – The Show Goes On
Maroon 5 – Moves Like Jagger
Nicki Minaj – Super Bass
OneRepublic – Good Life
Pink – Raise Your Glass
Pitbull – Give Me Everything
Rihanna – S&M
Rihanna – We Found Love

It doesn’t match Billboard’s U.S. year-end list, since DJ Earworm based it off of the weekly lists this year in order to more reflect what was actually popular during 2011. Because of the Billboard’s early cut off date and their emphasis on chart longevity, songs that are released after August are either split between the two years or moved to the next year.

Patrice Peris will sing the National Anthem for the Worcester Sharks – Jan 8th

•January 2, 2012 • Leave a Comment

Bristol Artist, Patrice Peris, will be singing her soulful rendition of the National Anthem this Sunday Jan. 8th at 3pm at the DCU Center for the Worcester Sharks game.

With soaring vocals and boundless energy, Patrice Peris is a cut above the rest. A self-described “mess of glamour with some funk and edge,” this R&B songstress is poised to crash the charts. She’s got the power of Christina Aguilera, the grittiness of Fergie and Rihanna, and the lyrical command of Alicia Keys. But make no mistake—Patrice Peris is her own soul. Little girl with a big voice—that was the childhood reputation of this Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, native, who poured her heart into vocal and acting lessons. She later earned a theater degree from UMass, and then amped up her formal training to pursue her dream. Now she’s owning the stage in gig after gig across New England.“I work hard for my audience. It’s a high-energy show filled with some dancing and lots of action,” says the down-to-earth siren. Some of her performances highlights include Gillette Stadium; T.D. Banknorth; DCU Center; Boston hotspot Hard Rock Cafe; the Summer and Winter Special Olympics; the 3-Day Walk for Cancer in Boston; Topsfield Fair; and R.I. College where she was the opening act for Universal/Motown artist Jada. Her music can be heard on the airwaves of Boston’s Kiss 108-FM and other regional stations with press mentions in Pulse Magazine and on the International Artist Debut Radio. Now Europe is catching on, with a top German DJ spinning her tracks. She even earned a private audition for the CW reality show “Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll.” Patrice is currently recording her debut album with producer/writer Ric Poulin of Bristol Entertainment in Boston. As co-writer, she’s making each song her perfectionist own, with tracks including the seductive ballad “The Way You Love Me” and the grooving dance jam “Forbidden Love” She’s hungry for a record deal, but even more than that: “I want to continue to evolve as an artist. Once I’ve achieved one goal, it’s onto the next. This time always needs to be better than the last.”

Pop/R&B/Hip-Hop Artist

         “I am amazed at the progress I have made in just 6 months. I walked into Bristol as a classical singer and quickly transformed into the Pop/R&B singer I have always wanted to be.

          I truly appreciate and adore my instructors. Elle has taught me how to control my vibrato and hold notes longer giving me a smooth tone, perfect for R&B. April challenged, taught and molded me into a front line dancer like the people I admire – such as Usher, Gene Kelly, Justin Timberlake, and Elvis – amplifying my credibility as an artist.

          I use the techniques Elle Wine taught me on an everyday basis and stand by the Bristol Pop/Gospel method. Elle catered to my out-of-the-box style of thinking and adapted her teachings to fit me as an individual – so I never felt like “just another student”.  She truly is a great artist, teacher, and mentor; someone who I now look up to and aspire to be like.

          Coming into Artist Development, I didn’t know what to expect.  I had already been a professional dancer from a young age and then spent years on the musical theatre circuit all over the country.  However, I recognized that I was a newbie to the music industry. Bristol did a wonderful job in placing me with an instructor who had a similar past to mine. April Forrest was the perfect teacher to mold me into a triple threat. With my background as a dancer combined with her  expertise as a performer, we were able to create a creative and multi-dementional show that keeps the crowd mesmerized and begging for more.

          The Bristol programs do everything that they claim they do, and the harder you work the harder the programs works for you.  Bristol helped me get signed to a professional  entertainment company in as little as six months. Because of Bristol Studios and their instructors, I am well on my way to the career I want, and I know, no matter how far I get, Bristol was the big step that began the climb up the ladder.

          Bristol is easily the best program  available in the Boston area if not  all of New England. I would definitely recommend it to anyone chasing their dreams because Bristol gives you the skills and methods to actually turn your dreams into reality.  They prepare you to have a lasting career in the music industry. They help you understand that a career in this industry isn’t just some fantasy, but a process that you can prepare for and succeed in. If your an artist searching for that next step, check out Bristol Studios and allow them to jump start your professional music career just as they did for me.” -Bunty
