As a missile crisis in North Korea looms, Kim Jong Un’s “friend for life” Dennis Rodman hit a club Monday. The former NBA star partied at a Lower East Side bash for gal pal Cara Quici and her dance track “Fight” hours before Adm. Samuel J. Locklear, the US Pacific commander, cautioned, “major conflict in Korea could have unpredictable . . . and far-reaching impacts.” Rodman made out with Quici on the red carpet at Dinner on Ludlow, then fist-pumped in a VIP section upstairs at DL rooftop in a sequined shirt. He refused to speak to us, perhaps busily hatching a cease-fire for Pyongyang. But Quici said of Rodman, “He’s a partier! I love it,” and “His lips are very soft.” Seems his diplomacy is all lip service, too.

New York based Singer songwriter Cara Quici talks about her new single FIght, and how she is using the Bander music discovery app to promote it.
Cara Quici is an American singer/songwriter born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas now living in New York City and Los Angeles. Cara first began singing church hymns at the age of 4 and throughout Cara’s school years, she cultivated and showcased her talent by participating in local school talent shows and church musicals.
As a pre-teen Cara attended International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) Convention in Hollywood, California with her Texas Agency, Infinity Model and Talent Agency. She won various awards for singing, dancing, acting, and modeling. Due to her parents being unable to move to Hollywood as her guardians, Cara then flew back to Texas leaving multiple contracts behind. On her 18th birthday, which was the same day she graduated High School, Cara sought out to reach her dreams by leaving her small Texas town for the lights and stages of New York City.
After four years in New York, Cara branched out to Hollywood, California becoming bi-coastal. During this time she prepped for her first professional recording sessions by attending the reputable Los Angeles based “Oksana’s School of Music” for piano and voice. Acclaimed pianist Oksana Kolesnikova was Cara’s teacher for piano. Cara then added accomplished Musician’s Institute Hollywood vocal coach Carol Rogers, known as Mama O, to her schooling. After recording over 30 songs with the industry’s top producers and writers in Los Angeles, New York, and Miami combined, Cara then released her first single to the public entitled “Away From You” which was also co-written by the singer herself.

Inoltre Cara studia al Musician’s Institute Hollywood con il vocal coach Carol Rogers, conosciuto come Mama O. Tutto questo per preparsi a realizzare il suo sogno. Dopo avere registrato le sue 30 canzoni coi produttori di cima dell’industria musicale a Los Angeles, New York, e Miami, Cara Quici pubblica il suo primo singolo “Away From You” prodotto da Max Gousse e da Billboard Fuego Hot 100, che è più noto per la hit Jason Derulo di “Whatcha Say” e il recente singolo di Chris Brown”Turn Up The Music”, che ha debuttato con un grandi consensi nellestazioni radio di tutto il paese e su Music Choice TV, ed è riuscito a raggiungere la posizione 27 sulla classifica di Dance Billboard.
