New Section!! APPRECIATION STATION: Anna Kendrick

Starting a brand new segment of the blog today - "APPRECIATION STATION".  This new section will bring forth people, places, things, acts of kindness, newsworthy information, humanity's greatest moments, and...well...just the big and little things that we should all learn to appreciate :).

We start off the section with an individual whom I find to be a compelling star of our time, Anna Kendrick. Really rising to fame in 2012 with the release of "Pitch Perfect", "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and "50/50" after her Oscar-Nominated role as Natalie in "Up in the Air" opposite George Clooney, as well as her stint as Jessica in all of the "Twilight" movies, Kendrick put her mark on the world for all to see, and has done nothing but soak up the good fortune and run with her talents.  Not only has she made her mark in the film world, but has also woken people up to her singing talents, performing the widely known "Cups" song from "Pitch Perfect", which took her all the way to making a single of the track and having a complete music video made from the song.
In addition, Anna helped lead her cast and a team of musicians to producing this video made by Mike Tompkins in which the cast of Pitch Perfect sang "Starships" (made famous by Nicki Minaj) completely acapella, along with videos of fans and singers worldwide, compiled into this one video where everyone came together over music.

And last but not least (and definitely not the end of the many reasons to appreciate Anna Kendrick), Anna participated in the "Trevor Live" concert sponsoring The Trevor Project, singing "For Good" with Kristin Chenoweth, in order to help bring to light the growing number of deaths amongst gay youths due to bullying and the hatred coursing through society these days.  Here is the performance:

All in all, keep an eye on Anna Kendrick.  I have a feeling she will be doing wonderful things during her life in the spotlight :).
