In an effort to cajole teens out of bed in the morning and on their way to school, the Get Schooled Foundation has enlisted popular artists to give them a wake up call.
Nicki Minaj, Jesse McCartney, Ciara, Trey Songz and Wiz Khalifa are some of the stars who have joined up with the Foundation. The Wake Up and Get Schooled campaign launched on Friday, and is hoping this star-filled tactic will help to reduce absences.
"One of the key factors in students graduating and succeeding in their educational goals is merely getting them to campus in the first place," Marie Groark, Executive Director of the Get Schooled Foundation, said in a statement. "By using the power of celebrity and persuasion, we are encouraging students to wake up and get schooled!"
The celebs have recorded messages encouraging kids to go to school, and students can sign up at Getschooled.com to get these free wake-up phone calls. The messages will available beginning the first week of October, and will run until June 2012.
Some Chinese got the physical copies of the ORIGINAL 'Have It All' which was supposed to be released last December probably because HWR made CDs in China. Some fan bought it and leaked it.
But Jesse has been working on new songs and one of his new producer said bunch of songs from the ORIGINAL 'Have It All' might gonna be replaced with new songs a little while ago (before those songs were leaked). So, i hope the damage is not that big.
Another producer said his new single gonna be released at the end of Feb and the new album gonna be released in March 2012 but now i think it gonna be pushed back again because of the leak.
@sharpshootaz1 bunch of songs are different. Its still up in the air though what all will be on it
@lbilla1 the single is due at the end of Feb and the album is in March. Can't tell you the song title yet but you will love it.
Jesse also worked with Sandy Vee.
Anyway, i really feel sorry for Jesse. I think he should start all over again with completely new songs.
^Yeah, I think it'd be in his best interest to scrap HIA completely and just release a brand new album; I would've felt that way whether or not the album leaked just because of how long it's been.
Also, after listening to the album, it's got some really good records on there but I can see why it was shelved. Departure was a much stronger album with more radio-friendly material. I'm hoping Jesse's new batch of records will return him to that level.

I hope he keeps some of the songs, it'd be a shame to lose "Undo" (Very Timberlake, vocally top notch, and sexy song) "Have it All" (Very radio friendly) "The Writer" (Poetically beautiful) "Club Hop" (Radio friendly) "Mrs Mistake" (Great story) and "Tonight is Your Night." (Sexy song) All those songs are top quality.
But he could lose "Shake" (Already bombed on radio) "Seasons" (Boring) "I Don't Normally Do This" (The Backup singers ruin it)"I Think She Likes Me" (Cool song but should have been recorded as a duet with an estabished star, not a backup singer) and "One Night" (ok song but one of the weakest tracks).

^^ Okay, I hate to say it but those pics are airbrushed AND YET Jesse's jawline does not appear as tapered as I would like it to be. He has very nice, symmetrical facial features and he would look amazin' with a slightly leaner look. Trust me on this, everyone.

I hope so! I have the copy that was leaked and I really want to see how he added to it! I really believe acting is his first priority. The failed "Locke and Key" is what kept HIA coming out last year, and now this new movie. Maybe he should just pull a Zac Efron and stick to acting if thats his main passion. I'd hate it cause his music is awesome but he is really starting to agitate is musical fanbase. He lost all momentum he gained with "Leavin" and "How Do You Sleep." 4 years is a lifetime when you are not an A list artist and he coulda been in that category had he stayed with the momentum when he had it.
Jesse filmed the new movie last November.(It took only one month to shoot.) And he has been in studio. So, that's not the reason his new single hasn't been out.
Feb @emanuelkiriakou Back at it with @jessemccartney @lindyrobbins and @therealjens
March @kevinwriter Shouts to my man Jesse McCartney, the record we did sounds dope. Don't sleep people, he's coming with the smashes! Whoop Whoop #itsncredible
@arthurmcarthur Back in with Jesse McCartney. This song is BIG
I think he's trying to get publicity by his acting since we all know Hollywood Records won't give him much promo. Btw, he didn't have momentum back in 2010. That's why the original HIA was pushed back. Actually, i'm glad it was never released. He should scrap Sean Garett songs and put real songs. They are horrible.
Maybe he should just pull a Zac Efron and stick to acting if thats his main passion.
I deffo would not compare his recent commitments to Zac Efron. Until HSM Zac had no singing experience, and was dubbed in the first movie. Jesse has always been on both sides of the spectrum.
Shake unfortunately underperformed and ultimately caused HIA to get shelved. Releasing Body Language after HDYS didn't do any favors either. (Crash & Burn was much better). Hopefully he'll get something out there soon before the interest washes up.

Hes already filming another movie, "Campus Life." He promised an album in 2010, 2011, and 2012 and never delivered. All Jesse cares about is acting now. Radio has far moved on from him, its been since at least 2009 when he last had a hit. His shelved "Have it all" album from 2010 leaked and its was "Grade C" material compared to his early works. His heart is in movies, not music. I doubt we'll ever get music from him again. So be it. I know he just did that preview but I think to him music is more his hobby, movies is his career. And to be honest I don't think his acting is all that great. His voice is much better.
The actor-musician becomes the latest cast addition on the seventh season of the Lifetime drama.
The actor-musician has booked a recurring role on the upcoming seventh season of the Lifetime drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
McCartney, best known for his TV roles on Greek, Summerland and All My Children (for which he was nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards), will play Private Tim Truman, an eager and enthusiastic soldier determined to prove himself on his first deployment. The Grammy nominee behind "Beautiful Soul" will play the husband to high school sweetheart/new series regular Elle McLemore's farm girl Holly Truman.
With his 11-episode recurring gig, he becomes the latest member of the Army Wives cast ahead of its seventh-season reboot. Lifetime in November added three new series regulars in Broadway alum McLemore, Ashanti and Torrey DeVitto (The Vampire Diaries).
Army Wives, which was renewed in September, will return with a major shake-up for its seventh season with star Kim Delaney exiting the drama and co-star Sally Pressman recurring as the series will confront the aftermath of the deadly plane crash featured in its sixth-season finale.
McCartney, whose credits also include voice roles in the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise, Horton Hears a Who and Cartoon Network's Young Justice, is repped by Paradigm, Ginger McCartney Management, Sherry Kondor at Good Noize Management and CESD. He begins production next week in Charleston, S.C.
A season-seven premiere date has yet to be announced.
GRAMMY® AWARD WINNER ASHANTI, EMMY® AND GRAMMY NOMINEE JESSE MCCARTNEY, TORREY DEVITTO AND ELLE MCLEMORE JOIN LIFETIME’S HIT DRAMA Army Wives
Series Set to Return for Seventh Season on March 10
NEW YORK, NY (January 23, 2013) – The seventh season of Lifetime’s hit drama Army Wives will see new challenges to the tribe, including a heartfelt and final goodbye to one of their own in one of the series’ most dramatic and pivotal moments. Four new characters are set to join the cast, headlined by Grammy® Award-winning singer/songwriter and actress Ashanti (Resident Evil: Extinction, John Tucker Must Die, Coach Carter), Torrey DeVitto (Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries), Elle McLemore (Bring It On, The Suite Life on Deck) and Emmy® and Grammy nominee Jesse McCartney (All My Children). As the number one ad-supported cable series in its premiere time period among Women 18+, Army Wives will return with 13 all-new episodes, beginning Sunday, March 10, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, leading into the season two premiere of Lifetime’s other hit drama The Client List.
“We’re all very excited about season seven, in which a new tribe emerges from the shadow of tragedy. Maintaining the enduring premise of Army Wives, the audience will witness a remarkable set of women -- some familiar, some new -- form friendships that see them through the challenges of Army life as their husbands serve at a dangerous outpost in Afghanistan,” said Jeff Melvoin, Executive Producer.
Army Wives follows the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women – and one man – living with their spouses and families on an active Army post. The series stars Catherine Bell, Brian McNamara, Kelli Williams, Wendy Davis, Terry Serpico, Alyssa Diaz and JJ Soria. Sally Pressman and Sterling K. Brown will also appear in several episodes.
Ashanti will make her series regular debut in Army Wives as “Latasha Montclair,” a force of nature and an indomitable spirit for whom “southern hospitality” isn’t just a concept, it’s a way of life. Latasha finds joy in navigating the daily chaos of singlehandedly wrangling her three children while her husband, “Quincy” (Joshua Henry, Godspell, The Scottsboro Boys), is deployed overseas.
DeVitto will portray “Maggie Hall,” a former airborne soldier with three deployments in Iraq under her belt who is more comfortable fixing Army trucks or riding her motorcycle than decorating her living room. Maggie is hanging up her dog tags and focusing on her new mission: motherhood and marriage to her second husband, Staff Sergeant “Eddie Hall” (Burgess Jenkins, Remember the Titans).
Multi-platinum singer/songwriter and actor McCartney, best known for his chart-topping hit song “Beautiful Soul” and his role on All My Children, for which he received two Daytime Emmy nominations, joins Army Wives as Private “Tim Truman,” an enthusiastic young soldier determined to prove himself on his first deployment.
McLemore, who starred on Broadway’s Bring It On, will play “Holly Truman,” Tim’s high school sweetheart and newlywed wife. Holly is a long way from her family’s farm in Effingham, Illinois, the only home she’s ever known. But now that Tim is deployed and Holly is on her own for the first time ever, she is learning the ropes of being an Army wife from her new friends at Fort Marshall.

He said at the end of 2011 that 2012 was the year of new music. Now its 2013 and nothing. Yet he's doing more acting. I believe its clear, Jesse has chose an acting career over singing. He's obsolete now. He was the Bieber of his day, just in a smaller scale. Since "Departure" the music industry has moved on. He'll never see the success he had before and its his own fault. The album he had ready in 2010 was good enough for a few hits. Both he and his record labels blew it and they know it. Acting is his future, music is his past and he has killed any chance of ever having a real future in it again. I speak as a fan. I've seen him live and even met him. I've never been as disappointed with an artist on how I am with him. I can't even listen to his music anymore that I used to love without thinking of how he's screwed his entire music fanbase, whats left of it, and doesn't seem to care. All he does is take "D list" acting roles. So B.F.D.
Singer/actor Jesse McCartney is co-producing and starring in Campus Life, which is the first feature-length film available through JumpView Entertainment.
It's not a webisode. It's not a theatrical experience. It's snackable entertainment.
What the hell is that? Let us tell you.
JumpView is offering a new way to consume films designed as a second screen experience. It's not a theatrical experience. It's not a webisode. JumpView Entertainment's snackable viewing experience is designed for the connected generation being integrated through social media channels. It allows the viewer to watch Campus Life whenever and on whatever device they choose.
They say that college is the time to discover who you are -- but what if you aren't who you thought you were? And what if you aren't where you thought you were? That's the premise behind Campus Life, a full-length feature film that is the first JumpView movie.
The film follows scared and confused students who are targets running out of time. Viewers unearth the mystery that is Campus Life through the eyes of five characters – as each unravels unusual events on a college campus, they find that "the truth doesn't always set you free."
Sounds thrilling. And it's a nice reappearance of McCartney, who was MIA after his smash hit "Leavin'" from a few years ago.
