Amazon Says: Jackie Evancho's Dream With Me In Concert is the perfect video companion to her chart-topping album, Dream With Me, which was produced by the legendary David Foster. David Foster has worked with the biggest names in music, including Beyoncé, Prince, Josh Groban and Celine Dion, but he admits that Jackie's talent astonished him. "Her natural ability and the depth of her understanding of the musical process left me speechless," he says. Foster has mentored Jackie and appears on Dream With Me In Concert as the show's host. The concert was recorded inside and on the grounds of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, which includes the stunning mansion Ca' d'Zan, known as the last of the Gilded Age mansions built in America. Ringling was the impresario behind the iconic Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus. "This is a big, beautiful place," said Jackie after she toured the grounds. "My favorite part is the Peter Paul Rubens [art] gallery," where she performed the haunting song "Dark Waltz" accompanied only by Foster on piano and Conrad Tao on violin -- and surrounded by four of Rubens' largest, and most striking, canvases. The DVD features two songs ( Mi Mancherai and To Believe ) that were filmed during the live concert but not included in the PBS show. Bonus features include an interview with Jackie and David Foster as well as a photo gallery. Also available as a CD/DVD combo pack. DVD Track Listing: 1. When You Wish Upon A Star 2. Nella Fantasia 3. O Mio Babbino Caro 4 To Believe 5. Imaginer 6. Lovers 7. Dark Waltz 8. Angel 9. Somewhere 10. Mi Mancherai 11. Ombra Mai Fu 12. All I Ask of You 13. The Lord's Prayer 14. Dream With Me 15. Nessun Dorma less...

Amazon Says: It's a BIG Calorie Burning WALK CONCERT in your HOME! We've all heard it before. The most effective workout plan is the one you actually DO! But with all of the demands in everyone s busy life, it's not so easy to find the time and energy to exercise. Motivation is key, and music is one of the best motivators. Great music makes your workout more fun and keeps you exercising because you LOOK FORWARD to it. That's why Leslie created WALK TO THE HITS. Walk To The Hits features hit music and High Intensity Interval Training (aka HIIT)-it's the perfect combination! Hit music pumps up your pace, and HIIT training alternates between short bursts of all out effort and longer periods of recovery, allowing you to walk a shorter session while blasting away as many calories as you would in a longer one. A study published in The Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness showed that women who completed a 12 week HIIT program lost more weight than a group who performed longer sessions of moderate intensity cardio. The HIIT group also lost MORE BELLY FAT. In short, walking to the hits using HIIT training is a sure-fire way to fire-up your walk! For this program, Leslie remixed some of her favorite radio hits to a fitness beat and combined them with some fresh new Walk At Home moves to create one of the most fun 3 mile walks ever. The high-energy gang of walkers, the music, the moves, the miles, the smiles .....It's more FUN than anyone should have on a fitness walk! less...

Amazon Says: Hosted by The Miz, the compilation features every Money in the Bank Ladder Match in history. The match debuted at WrestleMania 21 in 2005, quickly becoming a WrestleMania tradition and in 2010 proved so popular that it was given its own annual PPV event. Several top Superstars have been Money in the Bank winners including John Cena, Kane, Edge, CM Punk (twice!), Rob Van Dam and many more. 11 of the first 12 winners have used the match as a springboard to winning a championship, and several times the match has helped a Superstar who has never win a World Championship break through to claim their first. Much like the Royal Rumble Match, the Money in the Bank match represents a golden opportunity for a Superstar to achieve immortality, and its entire lineage is presented here. less...
