CeeLo Green to Perform Live at NACS Conference with +RED ELIXIR on KNEKT.tv

CeeLo Green will provide visitors to the 2017 NACS Conference in Chicago with a special live performance on Wednesday October 18th, and viewers around the Globe will also be able to watch it live online thanks to +RED ELIXIR.

CeeLo Green Group

Chicago, IL, October 18, 2017­­ KNEKT tv, an award winning live streaming and broadcast production company with a digital tv network will be working with +RED ELIXIR & CeeLo Green to produce and live broadcast a special performance with the chart topping musician. The performance will be sent live to digital platforms such as Facebook and Youtube, and audiences with Apple TV & Roku will be able to watch the performance free on the +RED ELIXIR Channel on the KNEKT tv Network.

+RED ELIXIR is revolutionizing the functional beverage category with a new high-performance elixir that increases endurance, optimizes performance and elevates power levels naturally, with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. For the second year in a row, CeeLo Green will be joining the NACS Show at the +RED ELIXIR Booth, but this time he will be performing and fans from around the globe will be able to participate. NACS is the convenience and fuel retailing industry’s premier event, attracting more than 23,000 people from around the globe.

“For the health conscious consumer, power in a can wasn’t nutritious. It wasn’t hydrating. It wasn’t natural.” Michael Ball, CEO, +RED ELIXIR “We spent a great deal of time researching Eastern philosophies and the healing botanicals used for centuries, and were drawn to the properties of red marine algae, a nutrient-rich ocean plant packed with vitamins, minerals, complete proteins and essential fatty acids. This therapeutic red super food became the catalyst for radical innovation, powering a precise combination of botanical ingredients, natural caffeine from green coffee bean, vegetable extracts, and a low glycemic sweetener that does not spike blood sugar and cause the fatiguing sugar crash.” 

In 2007, Michael Ball, the creative force behind global brands Rock & Republic and pro cycling’s Rock Racing, embarked on a quest to fill a nutritional void in the beverage industry fueled by the performance demands of his two worlds – fashion and sports. As a fast-paced fashion industry CEO, he understood the toll of stress, long days, travel, little sleep, poor eating habits, and dehydration on the body. As the team owner of a men’s professional cycling team and a former track cyclist, he knew first-hand the physical punishment athletes endured and the depletion they felt on a daily basis. He watched as athletes and fashion executives alike reached for sugary, chemically caffeinated or artificially sweetened drinks to boost power levels.

“When I first learned of the natural, synergistic ingredients and how Eastern philosophies and healing botanicals were used in the +RED ELIXIR products I was excited to try them for myself”- Kent Speakman, CEO & Producer, KNEKT TV “KNEKT aims to improve the lives of our viewers with socially conscious content, with a large focus on health and wellness. These drinks hit the mark, and also taste great!”

KNEKT.tv is focused on improving the world by connecting audiences with shows that inspire, and bring awareness to social causes as well as enhancing and enriching the lives of its viewers with informative health and wellness content. Blending celebrity advocates and luxurious locations around the world to peak the audiences interest has connected millions of viewers to experiences and issues. Exclusive live videos and red carpet appearances are directly or indirectly bringing awareness to issues spanning Animal Rights, Human Slavery, Children’s Welfare, Sex Trafficking, obesity, mental health and many, many more.

Live Music on Facebook Live? “If it sounds good, it is good”?

KNEKT had the pleasure of producing a really great live stream of an amazing artist DYSON today, and not only did she sound amazing in the studio, the sound on Facebook Live was phenomenal too.

We have been pushing the envelope into new territories with multiple cameras and new ways to tell stories in the live space, but today, it was just as much about sound… if not all about sound. DYSON performed acoustic versions of some of her up and coming releases…. which at least one of we would bet on, will be a massive billboard hit (and it wouldn’t be fair for us to bet on it knowing who her team is).

DYSON pushed the limits with her vocals and sounded so great we thought we should share it with you on LinkedIn, as it really shows another layer to what is possible with Facebook Live. With “over half of Americans watching a live stream for the first time in 2016”, – eMarketer, this medium is one of the fastest growing forms of communication in recent history. There are so many ways to integrate your brand, organization or non-profit into this new medium, and endless ways to create compelling, moving stories that engage and entertain in a new way.

For now, let DYSON entertain you. We will be here to discuss how we can work together once you have been blown away by this new artist, and one day you can say you “Heard it Here First”.

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fiamdysonmusic%2Fvideos%2F10154398096214010%2F&show_text=0&width=560

About DYSON:

“If it sounds good, it is good,” said Duke Ellington.

His testimony turns into prophecy the moment you hear the voice of DYSON, so it’s no wonder the U.K. native has gained noteworthy performance requests (Amber Rose’s SlutWalk 2016, various Pride events/TigerHeat, corporate events, etc.), radio and Spotify playlists additions (including both P3 and MP3 in Scandinavia and ElectroNOW Spotify’s biggest EDM playlist) and high­profile, industry supporters (Rodney Jerkins, Perez Hilton, Dave Aude, Martin Kierszenbaum, Evan Lamberg, Donna Caseine and Randy Jackson, for example). And all done in only a few, short months after releasing her debut singles, “Up All Night” and the Sander Kleinenberg collaboration “Feel Like Home”.

DYSON started singing and writing songs at five years old, setting her on a course that led to her signing with music publishing titan UMPG: a mutually rewarding partnership that has enjoyed multi­platinum successes in the AsiaPacific and European markets with megastars like Girls’ Generation (“Bad Girl”), Jo Kwon (the Avicci produced “Animal”), Astrid S (“Paper Thin”) and Wiktoria (“Save Me”). “I love turning stories into songs,” she says, “but I always knew I had this other gift hidden deep inside… This other person. I just never told anyone.”

Well, that was until she found herself collaborating with A2!, the multi­platinum selling production duo comprised of Grammy­winner Andre Lindal and Anthony Preston, who saw that hidden treasure and jumped at the chance to sign her to an artist development and production deal. “There’s something magical that happens when we’re together creating. And, they’re awesome at what they do,” DYSON says of her musical mentors. “They’ve taught me that music is expression first and that when you have something real to say, you can’t go wrong.”

And, becoming a global messenger is something she’s ready to do. In addition to A2!, her dynamic project features collaborations with various multi­platinum selling and/or Grammy winning producers, writers and musicians including Giorgio Tuinfort, William Orbit, Abraham Laboriel, will.i.am, Phil Bentley, Lauren Christy, Rodney Jerkins and Jodie Harsh. And, armed with a few musical “monsters”, Dyson marches onwards to becoming a Top 40, multi­genre touring and recording artist. “The development process opened my eyes to who and what I can be, and that I just needed to learn patience and self­love. Now, I want to be an inspiration… I want to spread a message communicated in a feeling,” she says in a serious tone before cracking a coy smile ­ “I’m just gonna sing it in a song.”
