Steel Panther's Kitty Cam Encouraged Donations and Adoptions

LA rockers Steel Panther raised money for cat rescue Heaven On Earth this past #GivingTuesdayNow by promoting an “all-day kitty cam,” focused on the adorable four-legged pussycats not doing much of anything in a room with some toys, under the watchful eyes of the band members on two big posters.


Streamed live from the local animal rescue, the kittens were also available for adoption.

“Thanks for watching. The stream is now over, but the replay lives on forever.  And you can still make a donation to Heaven on Earth,” it states on the Steel Panther web site, which hosted the YouTube live cam.

#GivingTuesdayNow, set up by GivingTuesday (Dec. 1), was "a global day of giving and unity... as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19."

The feline-loving Panthers selected Heaven on Earth Society for Animals, which was founded in 2000, coincidentally the same year as the band.

The mission of the charity, whose website is heavenlypets.org, is "to transform the lives of homeless cats through rescue, sanctuary, and new beginnings." They are a cage-free, no-kill shelter, hold mobile adoption events each weekend, started a foster program in 2018, and offers clinics and other outreach. –– Continue reading and watch the video at Samaritanmag.com

Karan Aujla & DIVINE Debut in Top 25 on Billboard Canadian Albums Chart

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE land the No. 22 spot on this week's Canadian Albums chart with their new collaborative release, 'Street Dreams.' On the Canadian Hot 100, Beyoncé's "Texas Hold 'Em" ascends to No. 1, while Canadian pop artist Preston Pablo makes a debut.

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE are making moves together on Billboard's Canadian Albums chart this week, with their collaborative project, Street Dreams, debuting in the No. 22 spot.

The seven-track album, released Feb. 16, blends harder hip-hop and smooth R&B pop, the latter shining through especially on the Jonita Gandhi-assisted "Yaad." It's not Aujla's highest spot on the Albums chart — he reached No. 5 in 2023 with Making Memories, his collaboration with Canadian Punjabi artist Ikky — but it gives him some momentum going into his upcoming performance at the Juno Awards on Mar. 24, where he's nominated for TikTok Juno fan choice and breakthrough artist.
