NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Today, singer, songwriter Taylor Swift and Scholastic, the world’s largest publisher and distributor of children’s books, announced a donation of 25,000 new, age-appropriate books from the Scholastic Possible Fund to 25 New York City schools in need of more books for their students.
Twenty-five schools will each receive 1,000 new children’s books through the Scholastic Possible Fund as a result of Taylor’s support of the Company’s “Open a World of Possible,” initiative, designed to promote independent reading among all children. As a long-time literacy advocate, Taylor hosted a webcast for classrooms during which she shared how books, reading and writing have influenced her and opened her world. Since it first aired in October 2014, the webcast has been viewed by more than 4.5 million students from around the country and is available at: http://www.scholastic.com/taylorswift/
The importance of increasing access to books in schools was highlighted in the most recent Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report™ which found that children ages 6-17 from lower-income households are more likely to read books for fun in school and far less likely to read books outside of school than their higher-income peers. Further, having a selection of texts for independent reading can be a powerful tool to encourage kids to pick up a book. The same report revealed that nine in ten kids agree their favorite books – and the ones they are the most likely to finish – are the ones they pick out themselves.
MUMBAI: Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ was the album that ruled the music scene in 2015, hitting the spot for fans across the world! The album has now sold close to a phenomenal 9 million units worldwide! The album has spawned multiple hits including ‘Shake It Off’, ‘Blank Space’, ‘Style’, ‘Bad Blood’ and the lastest single ‘Wildest Dreams’ – the video of which is directed by Joseph Kahn and shot in Africa and California, and is set in the 1950s.
While breaking records the world over, Swift has never failed to impress her legion of fans in India! Swift’s hold on Indian fans has also proven unshakeable as the album goes Triple Platinum in the country, making it the highest selling international album in India in 2015!
To commemorate the artists’ massive success in India, Devraj Sanyal, Managing Director and CEO, Universal Music Group South Asia, personally felicitated Taylor Swift with a Triple Platinum plaque in Singapore where the artist was touring as part of her SEA tour.
Speaking on the occasion, Sanyal said, “Taylor is undoubtedly one of the biggest pop stars in the world and she showed us why here in Singapore where she performed to a packed house of screaming fans! While I met her back stage, she expressed has eagerness to come perform for her fans out here and I’ve assured her that her fans will simply love it! She is an incredibly honest artist, one who has built her empire on the back of her fans and it’s evident she really cares.
Taylor won two NRJ Music Awards: Best Female International Artist and Video of The Year for Bad Blood. The awards took place in Cannes, France earlier today and Taylor was not in attendance as she is currently on tour.
Taylor has been nominated for four People’s Choice Awards! She is nominated in the following categories: Favorite Social Media Celebrity, Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Pop Artist and Favorite Song for “Bad Blood“. You can vote for Taylor here.
The 2016 People’s Choice Awards will air live from Los Angeles on January 6th!
By grabbing a Top 10 position on *this* week’s Billboard 200, Taylor Swift’s “1989” has removed the ambiguity. It has truly spent a calendar year inside the Top 10.
Upon learning that Taylor Swift’s “1989” claimed #9 on last week’s Billboard 200 (dated November 7), numerous media outlets reported that Swift’s album had spent 52 weeks — a complete year — inside the chart’s Top 10.
There was only one problem: while Swift’s album had spent 52 chart weeks inside the Top 10, its run had not yet crossed the one-year mark. “1989” was released on Monday, October 27, 2014, but the tracking week for last week’s chart concluded on Thursday, October 22, 2015.
The confusion stemmed from the fact that Billboard, this past July, issued a transitional chart to account for the switch to a Friday-Thursday sales tracking week. Dated July 25, the chart covered the eleven-day period between June 29 and July 9.
Since data from the first seven days of that tracking week was included in the chart dated July 18, the July 25 chart only accounted for four fresh days of sales activity.
