Tributes to Her Majesty

The Archbishop of Canterbury paid his respects to the late Monarch.

“[People were] always struck by her ability to make them feel as though they were the most important, the only person in the room, the only person in the street, in the crowd…

Both Her late Majesty and His Majesty treat others as special because, for both, their faith is built on the same rock – the rock of Christ…

This is a moment of deep grief, indeed. As Her Majesty said herself, grief is the price we pay for love.”

AI creates a song imitating Drake and The Weeknd



A big surprise for music fans when they heard a new song featuring Drake and The Weeknd. But there’s a catch!

The viral song was created by artificial intelligence.

A new song that sounds like Drake and The Weeknd has gone viral, but it was created by artificial intelligence.

Now, there’s a crusade against AI music.

The song,“Heart on My Sleeve”was created by artificial intelligence and quickly racked up millions of views on TikTok, Spotify, and YouTube.

Record label, Universal Music Group (UMG) is not happy about the song that used AI-generated vocals to simulate pop music artists Drake Graham and The Weeknd.

UMG flexed their muscle and forced the song featuring some of its biggest artists to be removed from Spotify and TikTok.

According to reports, UMG is taking it a step further and sent letters to Spotify, Apple Music, and other music streamers requesting they block AI tools from training their models on the melodies and lyrics of UMG artists.
