Years active 1992–present

Regina Hall (born December 12, 1970) is an American film and television actress and comedienne known for her lead role of Brenda Meeks in four of the five Scary Movie films, Candace in Think Like a Man and its sequel Think Like a Man Too and as Corretta Lipp in the FOX comedy-drama Ally McBeal.

Personal life[edit]

Hall was born on December 12, 1970 in Washington, D.C.,[1] the daughter of a contractor father, Odie Hall, and a teacher mother, Ruby.[2][3] She graduated from New York University in 1997 with a Master’s degree in Journalism.[4] She wanted a career with impact and envisioned “the life” of a scribe. Her first semester changed drastically when her father died. “It was sudden. And I think when sudden events that are painful happen in your life, you know, they redirect your course,” Hall reflected. “When you’re young, you don’t grasp the gravity of life. But when you lose someone and you’re young, you do. And so I think that started me thinking about what I really wanted to do in life. And I know my father would have wanted me to finish school. So I did that.”[5] She began a career in the entertainment industry, starting off with a guest appearance on Sadat X‘s 1996 album Wild Cowboys on the track, “The Interview”.

Around 2004, Hall’s mother was diagnosed with scleroderma, a rare autoimmune disease. Therefore, when not working in Hollywood, Hall can be found volunteering for the care of senior citizens at a Sherman Oaks, California convalescent home twice a week as well as raising public awareness for the disease. “When my mom was diagnosed, I didn’t know much about the condition. But Dana Delany, who is an actress and now a friend of mine, put me in touch with Bob Saget. Bob had made a television movie about scleroderma years ago because his sister had died from it. That was back when they didn’t even know what it was. Anyway, Bob had a group called the Scleroderma Research Foundation, so I donated to that and my mother even went to the doctor Bob had suggested, who happened to be over at Johns Hopkins.”[6] At age 40, Hall unsuccessfully tried to become a nun after a bad break-up. Hall had previously wanted to become a nun at the age of 14. She was refused for being too old, as the cut off age is 39 and for having too many sexual partners.[7]

In 2014, she signed as an ambassador for Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds. Hall has also voiced her admiration for Taylor. “I love Elizabeth Taylor. The reason I always was such a fan, I read her New York Times Best seller. She was one of the people who I felt equally possessed the same amount of talent as she did beauty. Her work that she did throughout her entire career–I watched her on “General Hospital” what I always loved about her was that she was elegant. Whenever I do red carpet looks one of the things that I like is to always make sure that there’s a sense of elegance and class. And I felt like she always exuded that.”[8]


In 1997, Hall appeared in her first television commercial at the age of 26. Her television career initially began with a role on the soap opera Loving, and guest appearances on the FOX police drama New York Undercover. She had a small part in the 1999 film The Best Man. She left a lasting impression on viewers with her portrayal of the character Candace “Candy” Sparks. Hall reflected: “It was my very first movie. I met Sanaa Lathan on it, and we did Love and Basketball together, which was my second film. And then, at that point, I was visiting L.A. to stay and it led to a third film and a fourth film. And it was really a big deal because I’d never been on a set before.”[9] It signaled a pivotal point for Hall’s career. As a key member of the all-star cast, she welcomed rising-star status in “blackHollywood“.

Hall gained more recognition with her role in the comedy-horror-spoof Scary Movie (and the sequels Scary Movie 2, Scary Movie 3, and Scary Movie 4) portraying the obnoxious, sex-crazed Brenda Meeks, and the TV movie Disappearing Acts. The Scary Movie films would become some of her best known roles.[10] In 2001, Hall landed the role of Coretta Lipp on the prime-time drama Ally McBeal, which was originally a recurring role over several episodes but was made a main character in the 5th season of the show. A year later, she starred in the action-drama Paid in Full, a film directed by Charles Stone III. Since then, she has appeared in leading roles in films such as Malibu’s Most Wanted, King’s Ransom and The Honeymooners.[11]

She appeared in the film Law Abiding Citizen in 2009.[12][13] She had a role in the 2010 Danneel Harris and Arielle Kebbel film Mardi Gras. From its fall 2010 debut until a series overhaul in January 2011, Regina Hall portrayed Deputy District Attorney Evelyn Price on Law & Order: LA. In addition to being an actress and advocate, Regina Hall announced in November 2010 that she is now writing for ABILITY Magazine.[14]

In 2012, she portrayed Candace Hall in Steve Harvey’s movie Think Like a Man, a romantic comedy based on his book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. Hall reprised her role as Candace Sparks in The Best Man Holiday in 2013. She believed the characters had evolved from the first film. Hall felt The Best Man Holiday was different from any sequel she had ever done before since it was not “immediate” and it had been fourteen years since the release of the original. Hall felt the first film had “the joy of the wedding” and in the sequel “they come together for the holidays, but it’s deeper than that. This one’s definitely different, but we still laughed. There was so much laughter behind the scenes.”[9] Hall joked about how all of the male members of the cast were married while all of the women were not, stating that Morris Chestnut was happily married while walking around “with his shirt off!”[15]

Hall appeared in the 2014 film About Last Night, costarring Kevin Hart.[16][17] She and Hart were seen as the film’s highlight as they had a “great dynamic together” and the two were credited with having the funniest lines in the film. All of the cast was seen as having a “perfect mix of charisma and likability”.[18] Jessica Herndon of the Associated Press stated “Hart and Hall are the best part of this film. They play the couple you know all too well: fiery, able to press one another’s buttons and always caught in the makeup to breakup game.” Negative reviews of the film also praised the pairing of Hall with Kevin Hart. Mick LaSalle of The San Francisco Chronicle expressed that Hart was “well paired for Hall, who matches him for comedy.”[19] At the time of the film’s release, both Hall and Hart expressed interest in working on other projects together.[20] About Last Night was her third ensemble film and Hall reflected that she learned from actors she worked with in ensembles.[21]

Hall reprised her role as Candace Hall in Think Like a Man Too. She revealed what members of the cast partied the most in the film shortly before the movie’s release. “Everyone kind of had their fun, I’m not gonna lie. We went out, we gambled. Kevin [Hart] parties. There were parties, and we all went. It was good fun”.[22] In July 2014, it was announced Hall would star in Lifetime film, entitled With This Ring, with Eve and Jill Scott.[23][24]

In the 2015 film People Place Things, Hall had a major role as the love interest of a newly divorced man.

Leatherface is an upcoming American horror film directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury and written by Seth M.

In January 2013, it was revealed that due to the success of Texas Chainsaw 3D, Millennium Films began planning a prequel film to be called Texas Chainsaw 4 which was expected to begin filming later in 2013 in the state of Louisiana.[14][15][16] Even though there have been over a half dozen films in the franchise, including the various remakes and prequels, calling the film Texas Chainsaw 4 it was an indicator that it was a follow-up to the third film in the original continuity, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III.[14] Millennium Films Chairman Avi Lerner shared that the project was brought to him by Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman. Millennium signed on to produce and Lionsgate agreed to distribute the finished product.[16][17][16]

Principal photography began on May 18, 2015,[20] shooting on locations in Bulgaria[5][21] for a slated 2016 release.[22][23] While five of the Texas Chainsaw franchise’s seven films have been shot in Texas and one in California and one in Louisiana, Bulgarian filming marks the first time a film in the franchise has been shot outside the United States. Filming was expected to continue through June.[24]

Early life[edit]

Hall was born in London, United Kingdom, to British stage director Peter Hall, who founded the Royal Shakespeare Company, and American opera singer Maria Ewing. Her mother is of Dutch, Scottish, Sioux, and African American origin.[4][5][6][7] Her parents separated when she was still young, eventually divorcing in 1990.[4] She has five other half-siblings,[4] including Edward Hall, a theatre director, Lucy Hall, a set designer, Christopher Hall, a producer, Emma Hall, and actress Jennifer Caron Hall, who is her father’s daughter with his first wife, French actress Leslie Caron. [8]

Hall attended Roedean School, where she became head girl.[4] She studied English Literature at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, before dropping out in 2002 just before her final year.[4][9][10] During her time at Cambridge, she was active in the student theatre scene and also set up her own theatre company.[11] She was a member of the Marlowe Society and starred alongside housemate Dan Stevens, who was an English literature student at Emmanuel College, in several critically acclaimed productions.[12][13]


Film and television[edit]

Hall’s first professional role came in 1992, when she appeared as young Sophy in her father’s television adaptation of Mary Wesley‘s The Camomile Lawn at the age of 10.[14]

Her feature film debut came in 2006 as Rebecca Epstein in the film adaptation of David Nicholls‘s Starter for Ten.

She replaced Jessica Chastain as Maya Hansen in the superhero film Iron Man 3 (2013).

Singles from If I Can Dream
  1. If I Can Dream
    Released: August 12, 2015

If I Can Dream is a studio album by American singer Elvis Presley (1935–77). It was released on October 30, 2015 by RCA Records and Legacy Recordings. The album features archival vocal recordings of Elvis accompanied by new orchestral arrangements by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It also features duets with Canadian singer Michael Bublé and Italian trio Il Volo. If I Can Dream was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, England, and it was produced by Nick Patrick and Don Reedman.[2]

Elvis’s ex-wife Priscilla Presley, who also served as the executive producer of the album, said of the project: “This would be a dream come true for Elvis. He would have loved to play with such a prestigious symphony orchestra. The music…the force that you feel with his voice and the orchestra is exactly what he would have done.”[2]


This is the album I think he always would have wanted to do. The label would have never allowed him to have an orchestra. And if it was up to [manager] Colonel Parker, he would have had Elvis just singing — no background, no nothing. I think we have given him the freedom here to experiment with all the orchestras he would have loved in the pieces.”

 — Priscilla Presley on the album.[3]

If I Can Dream was released in commemoration of Elvis’ 80th birthday celebration throughout 2015.[2] In an interview with Rolling Stone, Priscilla Presley said the vision of the album was to keep Elvis relevant: “Our culture and music has changed so drastically, I think that we have to keep [Elvis] right in line and do whatever we can to keep him current”. Priscilla Presley also said the album is carrying the “DNA of Elvis Presley and keeping him authentic”.[3] The album was named after Elvis’s 1968 single of the same name.

Commercial performance[edit]

After debuting at number 1 in the UK, If I Can Dream tied Presley with Madonna for the most UK number-one albums by a solo artist, with each having 12.[4] It is also Presley’s 50th album to hit the UK top 10, and 59 years since his first #1 album on the chart, also a record. It sold 79,000 units in its first week at number 1, then 88,000 in its second week at the top, as well as 69,000 in its third week (at number 3), then alternating between positions #3 and #2 on the strength of sales in excess of 77,000, 96,000 105,000 121,000, 173,000, 71,000, 40,000 and 33,165 on its next eight weeks, respectively. On its 12th week, it sold 12,510 units copies, falling to #8, then slipping further to #12 on its thirteenth week on sales of 8,263. The album was one of the fastest selling of 2015 in the UK and, as of December 11, the year’s fourth biggest selling album. In fact and by virtue of its having sold in excess of 880,000 units by the end of its ninth week, it also became the year’s top selling album by a non UK artist, the top three being Adele’s 25, Ed Sheeran‘s x and Sam Smith‘s In the Lonely Hour, with the latter two actually being 2014 releases. On January 5, 2016, The Independent reported that the album was the 12th best-selling home entertainment title of 2015, which, along with the tremendous success of the aforementioned Adele and Sheeran albums, helped drive a 4% increase in UK music sales with respect of those of 2014. If I Can Dreams current UK sales stand at 974,777.[5]

In the United States, the album debuted and peaked at number 21 on the Billboard 200 after having entered the Billboard Classical Chart at number 17 the previous week. Due to the inclusion of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, this marked the first time a Presley record had entered that chart. It then jumped from #17 to #1 in its second week and held that position in its third week, while then successively remaining inside the top four positions for the next eleven weeks.

If I Can Dream debuted at #3 on the New Zealand Albums Chart and entered at # 1 in both the Scottish and Australian album charts. In the former, he remained in the first three positions for the next seven weeks, returning to #1 in the ninth. In the latter, it held the top spot for a second week, became Presley’s second chart-topping album after ELV1S in 2002 and by December 31 had become the 11th biggest album seller of 2015.[6]

On December 22, 2015 the United World Chart, a division of Media Traffic, included it in its weekly list of the world’s top 40 selling albums in 2015, entering the chart at #36, with a tally of 820,000 copies sold worldwide up to that date. On December 29, the album rose to the #21 position, as an additional 206,000 in sales were reported in the week prior, thus bringing its worldwide sub total for 2015 to 1,026,000. Finally, on January 5, 2016, the end of year results showed the album finishing the year at position #19, with sales for 2015 totalling 1.114.000. As to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th weeks of 2016, it went on to sell 54.000, 47.000 and 23.000 (ranking at #5, #10 and #25 respectively) thus raising its overall total to slightly over the 1.273,000 mark.

Elvis Presley singles discography

Singles 111
No.1 Singles 33

The discography of Elvis Presley starts on July 19, 1954, with the release of his first commercial single, and ends in February 1978. Presley’s final album, Elvis in Concert, and final two singles, “My Way” and “Unchained Melody“, although released after his death are considered part of the discographical canon as they were projects Presley himself knew about in the planning stages.[1] All other releases are included in the posthumous sections, and obviously all compact disc box sets were also released after Presley’s death. Without including album reissues, during this period of 1954 to 1978 American Presley releases consisted of 108 singles, 30 extended-play singles, 70 albums on RCA Records, four albums on the Pickwick budget label, and five singles on the Sun Records label.

RIAA certifications and sales[edit]

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) began to certify gold albums and singles in 1958,[2] and Elvis Presley’s first RIAA award, a gold single for “Hard Headed Woman“, was certified on August 11, 1958.[3] In August 1992, he was awarded with 110 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums and singles, the largest presentation of gold and platinum record awards in history.[4] According to Presley’s record label, RCA, he is the best selling artist of all time, with sales over 1 billion records worldwide in all formats (600 million in the United States alone).[5][6]

Roy Orbison discography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The discography of Roy Orbison (April 23, 1936 – December 6, 1988), a singer-songwriter who found the most success in the early rock and roll era from 1957 to 1964. He later enjoyed success as a member of the Traveling Wilburys and a brief resurgence in the 1980s. At the height of his popularity, 22 of Orbison’s songs placed on the U.S. Billboard Top 40 chart, and six peaked in the Top Five, including two Number Ones. In the U.K., Orbison scored ten Top 10 hits between 1960 and 1966, including three No.1 singles.

Born and raised in Texas, Orbison got his start in a rockabilly band in high school. He broke into professional music under Sam Phillips at Sun Records, but found only marginal success there.[1] After a couple years writing for other musicians, Orbison recorded several songs at Monument Records under producer Fred Foster. With Foster, Orbison and his frequent songwriting partners Joe Melson and Bill Dees tailored many of Orbison’s songs for his unique voice; his most popular songs were dramatic ballads ending with emotional crescendos that showcased his powerful vocals. After his biggest hit in 1964, “Oh, Pretty Woman“, Orbison continued to record, but not until 1987 did he find the success he had once known when his single “In Dreams” was used in David Lynch’s film Blue Velvet. The next year, Orbison recorded with the supergroup Traveling Wilburys alongside Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and George Harrison.[2] Lynne produced Orbison’s final album Mystery Girl, which was released posthumously in February 1989.
