Dylan Bernard invited JustJaredJr. to his private launch party, where he serenaded the room with an emotional performance.
The party was nestled atop the Hollywood Hills in a private home, which had an insane view of the city.
The weather was perfect, the food was good (we munched on Buca di Beppo and ice cream cupcakes from Cold Stone Creamery)… the music even better.
The 21-year-old singer was celebrating the launch of his debut EP, Sparks, which you can grab on iTunes here.
“Performing ‘Gasoline’ at my EP Release Party was such a surreal experience,” Dylan tells us. “It was the first song I wrote when I moved to L.A. and to see everyone at the party clapping along was a really special moment for me. I could not have asked for a better crowd to be there supporting me, and I will remember that night forever.”
Check out his heartfelt performance of his single “Gasoline.”

YouTube sensation Rudy Mancuso is in Brazil right this second preparing to do his first live show tonight, which just happens to be opening for Justin Bieber on his Purpose World Tour.
Could you imagine?
What’s even more exciting-slash-scary is this is Rudy‘s home country.
We’ve been watching Rudy kill it on YouTube, rehearsing the entire month, and we talked to him this morning to see what’s going through his mind.
Here’s what the multi-talented musician, who also happens to be dating Maia Mitchell, told us:
“Opening for Justin in Brazil is undoubtedly a dream come true. Not only because of the opportunity as a musician, but because of the place,” Rudy, who’s managed by Shots Studios, tells JJJ. “As a Brazilian, I can’t think of a more impactful way to touch base with my roots than to perform in a stadium with tens of thousands of my own people. It’s a true blessing and privilege.”
He continued: “I’ve dedicated the last two months to writing, recording, and rehearsing a very elaborate one-man show. I’m attempting to do something on stage that I personally haven’t seen done before.”
Woah, we can’t wait to see it. Rudy tells us his set is about 35 minutes, and he’s playing all of his own instruments. Sounds like another amazing musician (*cough* Bieber) we know!
Selena Gomez lowkey dropped huge news in her interview with the Today show yesterday, and we are really excited about it.
Slowly and steadily, the 24-year-old singer and actress has been opening up to the world again after taking a 15-week hiatus from social media and her career to focus on herself.
Sel has gifted us with a couple of projects, including a catchy collab with Kygo on “It Ain’t Me,” gorgeous pictures from her Vogue cover shoot and we know there are Coach and Pantene campaigns in the works.
But Selena lowkey slipped a sentence into her interview yesterday that hints that she’s working harder than we realized on new music!
“I’ve been in the studio for a week straight and haven’t really said anything about it,” Sel confessed to Today.
But why is she keeping it under the radar?
“I’m enjoying finding moments for myself,” Selena explained. “It makes me feel very empowered and control of where I’m at.”
The 25-year-old country singer just dropped the visuals for “Yesterday’s Song” – directed by Ryan Hamblin – one of three new tracks off his upcoming third studio album.
“Writing and recording for this new album has been a creative journey for me, both as an artist and just as a human,” Hunter says. “I’ve been learning how to let go and just let the process be, not over-thinking every little thing which is something I’m really good at.”
He added, “I’ve been experimenting with new sounds and stretching myself creatively more than ever before, and just embracing life, which I think you can really hear in these songs and I think that comes through visually with this video as well.”
The country starlet, who you might remember from The Voice, just released her debut album and it’s getting so much praise.
On the day it dropped, RaeLynn did something even more amazing — she made the first donation to the RaeLynn Diabetes Fund at Texas Children’s Hospital.
RaeLynn herself has Type 1 diabetes and credits Texas Children’s Hospital with saving her life and is now proud to pay her blessings forward.
“It’s something dear to my heart and there are a lot of kids that get really lost in finding out that they have Type 1 diabetes, that they lose their passion to do things and I wanted to show them that it’s okay to have Type 1 diabetes and still live your life and have a healthy full life”, RaeLynn shared at the event.
The reigning America’s Got Talent winner headed over to Europe to perform at the opening ceremonies — and the closing ceremonies too!
“Thank you to everyone involved in @SpecialOlympics for allowing me the honor of sharing the stage with one of my idols @jason_mraz. #Amazing,” Grace wrote on Instagram with some pics of her on an official step and repeat.
During the ceremony, Grace performed “I Don’t Know My Name”, “Light in The Sky”, and a special duet of “I’m Yours” with Jason Mraz.
