MICHAEL is supporting CHIDEO so please sign up and support him.   Chideo is a new way of raising funds to benefit causes dear to the hearts of those involved and this is achieved by celebrities agreeing to seek suggestions from followers of what they would like to see them do and they will make a video of the suggestion that gains the most votes.   Monies will be raised by those wishing to view the video, paying a nominal amount to do so, and this money will go to the cause that is nominated by the celebrity.


Please follow link below to hear Michael talk about what you can do to support him with his CHIDEO involvement and help to raise funds for the Michael Bolton Charities




Here is a brief resume of what CHIDEO is about.....

"Over the past few months Film Independent has been working on a few exciting and important projects with the United Nations and UCLA’s Burkle Global Impact Initiative, which aims to activate the entertainment industry to engage more deeply and effectively with global policy, humanitarian and advocacy issues. We’ve hosted several of the Under-Secretary-Generals of the UN at our offices, and held a roundtable conversation at the Los Angeles Film Festival with members of the UN and UCLA to discuss humanitarian-themed storytelling.

Now, we’ve been asked to help review an innovative idea launched by another friend of the United Nations, Chideo, which partnered with the UN on its recent World Humanitarian Day.

Chideo is a digital platform created by Todd Wagner (2929 Productions, Magnolia Pictures) designed to raise money for causes that celebrities care about. Here’s how it works: fans make suggestions to celebrities about what exclusive content that they’d like to see. Other fans vote on those suggestions and if there’s enough interest, the star will respond by creating a video based on the suggestion. For example, if enough fans request it, Don Henley might post a backstage video of himself with his band just before they go on stage. Users then pay a small donation ($1.99) to watch the video; and the money is given to the cause the celebrity has chosen to support."

Thanks for posting that Gail for it is super interview especially when you find out exactly how Gwenda found out about her win....just terrific and so looking forward to her video !!! :)   Thanks again Gail !!! :)

Here is Chideo's video of Gwenda's trip to Trinidad which they published yesterday on their site:  


For Sylvie and Robin the video is made up of various clips with it first showing you a beach in Trinidad and then when you hear Gwenda's voice that is section she recorded herself and it shows her and her husband sitting together with her talking and she has on Michael's tour t-shirt.  It also takes you to a photo of poster which advertised competition as well as showing you a little bit from the video Michael recorded inviting you to enter and showing you what prize was.  At other times you hear Gwenda's voice and a lot of background noise and that is what has been filmed within the Hasely Stadium itself and obviously when you hear Michael introducing ANMHE you see a shot of Michael on stage with Amanda standing beside him and you also see Gwenda at that point and also during the song camera goes back round to her and she is singing along.  Then when Michael's voice and Gwenda's come in that is when they are in Michael's dressing room and you see them standing talking and then you hear Michael saying about moving to the other wall to cut out glare in photos and there is a shuffle of people as they move around in a small space and camera kind of goes everywhere at that point until they focus again on Michael and Gwenda and they are then getting photos taken.  There are quite a few people in the dressing room and you become aware of that as Michael moves everyone around and for me, I found that quite a fun part of the video.  At end when you hear Michael saying about Chideo the camera zooms in on him and he goes forward to camera pointing his finger and that is why you hear the laughter in background because it is at his actions. At very end when you hear Gwenda saying she still couldn't quite believe it that is when the credit for Chideo is coming up.  Hope that helps make it a little bit more real.

Hi Sylvia, thanks for the description. It does make it more real because I don't have access... XD I appreciate you taking the time to describe, take care Sylvia. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

A tad late getting back here .. sorry but that is a pity you can't access it although in some respects I would be inclined to say it is a visual video especially as far as Michael is concerned for you really only see him you don't hear him for, even although you see him standing talking to Gwenda, you can't really decipher exactly what they are saying.  Funnily enough I have now gone over to Google Chrome for where before I thought I didn't like I am finding I quite like it, as I am getting more used to, and especially when switching between pages for it is far easier than with Internet Explorer in doing that ... just another piece of useless information !!! LOL

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


I have loved Google Chrome for some time
Its easier to use I think. Have fun Sylvia!

Robin in MD :)

Thanks a lot for the tip Sylvia, I appreciate it. I'm aware that Google Chrome is very helpful, especially for videos etc and my son swears by it. It's problematic with Jaws, so whatever. I'm just glad to hear I'm not missing much audio-wise. Thanks again Sylvia, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
