Madison Daniel, a fast-rising singer-songwriter and actress from Australia represented by Ina Petersen’s, Inner Voice Artists, in the U.S, has just announced a long-term partnership with Aranyani, a leading luxury brand for men and women’s handbags. With a mission to connect humankind with nature through stories and works of art across the globe, the Aranyani team plans to expand on an international scale by partnering with Madison Daniel to reach her widespread audience, as the young star continues to make her mark in the music and film industries.

Madison Daniel started acting at an early age, and shortly after developed a creative interest in music, taking up not only singing but also the piano and guitar, as well as a passion for fashion.  After meeting at New York Fashion Week this September, Haresh Mirpuri, CEO and Founder of Aranyani, instantly connected with Madison Daniel in realizing they shared a similar goal, which is not only to share a peaceful message with the world, but also exposing its hidden beauty through different forms of art.

Through the new partnership, Madison Daniel reflects the brand’s continued focus on celebrating and appreciating the environment as well as encouraging a conscious fashion trend. Drawing inspiration from their communities, Madison Daniel and Aranyani will collaborate on a handbag design that will also feature note sheets from Madison Daniel’s original music, as the young artist promotes the custom-made design on social media to her audience and fans.

As Aranyani and Madison Daniel continue to rapidly expand their worldwide fan base, the new partnership will help them engage with new audiences from around the world.

“I’m honored to be working with such talented, creative and enthusiastic designers for this fashion and accessories collection,” said Madison Daniel. “Each design captures the elements of nature through unique symbolism and textures, and I’m excited to share these creative visions with my supportive fans and incorporating them into my art, as I continue to grow and evolve as an artist.”

“Three years ago, I came upon this anonymous wise saying, ‘We do not inherit our Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.’ It’s a simple and yet the most insightful statement that made me look at our world from a different perspective,” said Haresh Mirpuri. This perspective led to the creation of our very own brand Aranyani. Aranyani’s vision is to connect humankind to nature through stories and works of art. With this connection we believe we contribute to Earth’s well-being in our own way. It is a blessing to connect with artists with creative souls like Madison, and who we can collaborate with to share our message through art with the world.”

The deal was brokered by Ina Petersen (Inner Voice Artists) on behalf of Madison Daniel, and Yenifer Lam on behalf of Aranyani.

About Madison Daniel:

Madison Daniel is a fast-rising 21-year-old singer-songwriter and actress whose roots in the seaside town of Mount Martha, Melbourne, Australia, lend her a unique sound that encompasses all genres, from pop to indie and even rock and hip hop. In July 2018, Madison’s Australian commercial hit record, ‘LOVE IS LOVE’, officially made its U.S. debut by way of Spotify and iTunes, and the music video was released shortly thereafter. The song delves into why we as human beings need to rid ourselves and our world of judgement and bias, and allow our fellow human beings to love as they wish. The song was inspired by and celebrates the legalization of same-sex marriage in Australia, an issue near and dear to Madison’s heart, but its message is worldwide and certainly relevant to the U.S. political climate. Her latest single, ‘DROPKICK’, was released during New York Fashion Week to strong critical acclaim and praise from the music industry. Madison Daniel is currently busy working on new music to be released in early, 2019.

As you might imagine, Teen InFluential receives correspondence from readers every month. Sometimes it comes by e-mail and sometimes through social media. Many of the messages begin with “I look forward to reading Teen InFluential every edition” and then there’s usually a recommendation for improvement.

We appreciate all our readers, all of us on the team do. We believe when you’re taking the time to communicate, even when to tell us how we can possibly do better, you’re showing you care.

We’re thrilled to have a huge audience of smart people who live all over the world, with various tastes and lifestyles, and interests.  With each story we publish, our goal is to positively impact all of you. Of course, reaching this goal will always be a work in progress, but we can certainly hope, can’t we?

It’s Our 7th Anniversary!

William Jackson, Found & Chief Business Officer of InFluential Magazine, Spanish InFluential, and Teen InFluential

William Jackson, Founder & Chief Business Officer of InFluential Magazine, Spanish InFluential, and Teen InFluential

On the one hand, it feels like I’ve been doing this for a lifetime, while on the other, I find myself wondering “Where did the years go?” It’s been a year of excitement, highs and lows, long work days and restless nights, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything else.

This past year has taught me so many useful lessons, and one that really stands out is just how important it is for individuals to be patient, long-suffering, and kind toward others; without judgement.  In a culture where freedom of speech is widely encouraged, many seem to have lost sight on the importance of having something of positive and encouraging to say, tempered with applying the “Golden Rule”.  As a reminder, the “Golden Rule” admonishes us to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.  Of course, the lack of applying the “Golden Rule” is almost always to our detriment.

In previous Publisher’s Notes, I shared my own struggle with trying to ensure I live a well-balanced life and making such a priority. Although, I still have room for improvement, I’ve been making slow but steady progress. I recently began adding the practice of yoga to my regular health & wellness routine, something I never would have imagined in a thousand years. But thankfully, it’s doing wonders for me. I feel calmer, am resting better, and my days are less hectic.

It’s with this newfound sense of balance and calm I wish to collaborate with you as we begin our seventh year. On that note, I’m thrilled to welcome you to our Seventh Anniversary Edition!  One of our Exclusive Interviews is with Hanna Jaffe Bosdet.  The well-known Philanthropist, human rights activist, speaker, and author opens up about her new acting role in NETFLIX’s first Mexican reality series Made in Mexico, and what’s she’s doing to raise awareness of important topics such as human rights, immigrants, refugees, peace, and the importance of education.  Being that this also our Style Edition, of course we had to bring you many topics related to style and its impact as we strive to live well.

I invite you to feast your eyes on this stunning Seventh Anniversary Edition and enjoy reading the rest of the amazing features we have for you in this Edition.  May this Edition inform and inspire you to continue living your best life.

From my very being, I thank you for being a dedicated reader. Seven thrilling years would not be possible without you.  I’m so grateful to and inspired by the entire InFluential Magazine, Spanish InFluential, andTeen InFluential teams, who work tirelessly to bring you our award-winning publications. I’m truly excited about the future of InFluential Magazine, Spanish InFluential, and Teen InFluential, and I believe the best is yet to come.

Fondly and with Great Enthusiasm,

Presenting Michelle Leclercq, The New Latin Pop Star

PR Agency managed by SGG Public Relations. 

Born in Argentina, based in Los Angeles, Michelle Leclercq is a singer / songwriter/producer known for her Latin infused pop songs. Described as “captivating” by magazine ABC COLOR, Michelle’s debut single The Mission reached #1 on iTunes Argentina. Her successful compositions and honesty on her lyric writing have called the attention of major recognized producers, such as the two times Latin Grammy award winner Raniero Palm.

Growing up Michelle was considered by her family and teachers a musical genius. Since the age of six she played violin at her school’s orchestra, and she taught herself how to play piano and guitar. With her short but interesting career Michelle has already performed at several local venues throughout California, Argentina, Paraguay, and Australia.

Her new song album,Self Love has been to Michelle a means to self-understanding and inner healing. The four song EP contains some of the deepest and most honest emotions the artist has ever expressed publicly. In September 2017 Michelle’s first love passed away from a drug overdose. After that, the artist was immersed in a complete confusion and constant reflection. She understood even though drug addiction is a one-way road to self-destruction, giving up on love or renouncing to happiness due to fear of failure is also a way of self-destruction and it all roots in the lack of self-love. Through this album, Michelle seeks to open the eyes of her listeners, leading them to love themselves and spreading the message that we are all worth it, and we all deserve happiness.

Soon she’ll release one new song Present Past Future.

Make the Most of Outdoor Concerts

For many music lovers, there are few things better than an evening spent at a concert, sprawled out on the lawn with friends. Concerts and interesting venues can also be reasons for traveling and excuses to explore a new city or revisit a favorite location.

Whether you’re checking out a concert near home or building a vacation around concert moments and memories, music expert and entertainment reporter Chelsea Briggs offers these tips so you can rock your outdoor concert experience:        

Plan an Early Arrival

Venues typically allow fans to enter about 90 minutes before the show starts. For venues with open seating, you’ll need to be at the gates early (at least 15 minutes before they open) to nab the best spot on the lawn, get settled and grab refreshments before the concert begins.

Don’t Delay Purchasing Tickets

Set calendar notifications to remind yourself when tickets go on sale and don’t forget to grab an extra ticket for a music-loving friend or family member. An option like Hilton Honors’ Lawn Days program, in partnership with Live Nation, lets members access thousands of lawn seat concert tickets all around the United States for just 10,000 points a pair. Briggs suggests surprising a friend or using the tickets for a date night that won’t break the bank.

No Need to Skip Dinner

Lots of concerts take place during dinnertime, which presents the perfect opportunity to indulge in the venue’s many concession options.

“Recruit your friends to build out a lawn picnic by grabbing bites at the tasty food vendors to help fuel your night,” Briggs said.

Dress for Fun

Concerts are a great place to take fashion risks and have some fun with your style. It’s important to find a balance between comfort and style, so test your outfit a few days in advance to ensure you’re equally comfortable sitting and moving around if you enjoy dancing.

Capture the Moment in Moderation

Taking quality photos of an artist on stage can be challenging and watching the concert through your phone screen interferes with the live experience. Grab a few shots with your friends at the start of the show for those lasting memories then let the professionals capture the shots of the artist.

Rest Your Weary Head

“There’s really no better way to reenergize after an amazing performance, and maybe some post-show celebrating, than by crashing on a comfy bed,” Briggs said.

One way to make the most of your stay is by joining and booking through Hilton Honors, which is free to join and gives members instant benefits with every stay, including exclusive member discounts, free standard Wi-Fi, online check-in through the app and points toward future free nights. Learn more at HiltonHonors.com, where you can also find a full list of Lawn Days Concert Series cities and shows at amphitheaters across the country. (Family Features)
