Petition to Tom Ellis, Warner Bros. Television, Vertigo , Warner Brothers, Time Warner
Lucifer actor Tom Ellis to release a soundtrack of the songs he plays
The show Lucifer is loved among many people, myself included. The actors are amazing in their roles, the themes of the episode are thought provoking and, something noteworthy, the soundtrack is INCREDIBLE! The soundtrack includes many different artists such as Cage The Elephant, David Bowie, The Black Keys and Led Zeppelin (Just to name a few). However, Tom Ellis himself, the actor who plays Lucifer Morningstar, will sometimes play and sing covers of songs on the piano within the episodes. The covers range from Bob Dylan's All Along the Watchtower (Which was famously covered by Jimi Hendrix) to Nina Simone's Sinnerman. The songs are beautifully performed yet, unfortunately, no professionally recorded version of these songs covered by Tom Ellis exist. The aim of this petition is to convince Tom Ellis and Warner Bros. to record these songs professionally for the fans of the show and also for the people who enjoy brilliant covers of amazing songs.
Petition to KCON in London, UK
Bring KCON to London, UK!
USE THE HASHTAG #BringKCONtoLONDON WHENEVER YOU SHARE THIS PETITION TO MAKE IT BIGGER AND BETTER. Fans in the UK don't get a lot of opportunities to meet and watch their idols on stage. If we do it would be not a well known group and if we are lucky then maybe 2 times a year an idol comes round. KCON is a big hit in America and I'm sure it will be a hit here in London. Super Junior, back in 2013, came to London and almost got a sold out show in Wembley. So if you bring 5-10 idols to London with KCON in Wembley then it will most likely get sold out if you don't put down overly pricey tickets. Just please don't let this dream for us stay a dream. Make it come true. We will be so grateful and won't let you down.
Petition to European Commission, European Parliament, Council of the European Union
Make the Internet fair for performers
[Version française] [Deutsche Version] [Versione italiana] [Versión española] [Versão em português] [Polska wersja] [Dansk udgave] [Česká verze] [Ελληνική έκδοση] [Nederlandse versie] [Slovenska verzija] In the first half of 2015, over 1 trillion songs, movies and TV series have been streamed online - more than double the amount in 2014. However, whilst Spotify, Netflix and iTunes and other legal, on-demand streaming and download services continue to grow in popularity and value, performers still do not receive a fair share of the income generated by their recorded performances. In order to remedy this unfair situation, four international organisations representing over half a million performers in Europe (AEPO-ARTIS, EuroFIA, FIM and IAO) have joined forces and launched a campaign for the fair treatment of performers online (the Fair Internet campaign). Do you believe that performers should be fairly rewarded? If so, you can help us make that happen. Simply sign this petition and share it with your friends and colleagues on social media. Raising awareness is key to setting up a fair legislative framework for performers in Europe. Thank you for your support!
Petition to John Latham (Vice Chancellor) – firstname.lastname@example.org, Seymour Roworth-Stokes (Executive Dean of Arts and Humanities) – email@example.com
Help save Coventry University’s undergraduate music courses from closure
Coventry University’s Vice Chancellor, John Latham, and the Executive Dean of Arts and Humanities, Seymour Roworth-Stokes, have decided to close down the BA (Hons) Music Composition, BA (Hons) Music and BA (Hons) Music Performance degree courses. The decision to close the three courses has taken place within months of the University approving the new BA (Hons) Music degree alongside a re-design of the respective Composition and Performance courses. Coventry University’s three undergraduate music degrees offer students the chance to specialise in composition, performance or general music. These music courses are non-doctrinal which means that students from all musical backgrounds, styles and genres are welcome; classical musicians are encouraged to rub shoulder-to-shoulder with rock musicians, jazz musicians and singer-songwriters, etc. The music facilities, comprising practice rooms, recording studios and teaching spaces, form part of a larger Performing Arts department alongside Dance, Theatre and Music Technology. The music students are therefore part of a larger community of practice within the University and they have the opportunity to collaborate with practitioners from other performing arts disciplines as well as developing skills within their main musical discipline. The music students are also actively encouraged to perform with local music ensembles, choirs and bands and many students and alumni are regularly participating in and around Coventry’s music scene, some internationally. The decision to close the music courses will have a negative impact upon the learning experience for the current one hundred and twelve Coventry University undergraduate music students, as the courses are phased out by August 2018. By this time, the final year students will be left feeling undervalued by the University, taught by a skeleton staff of two full-time academics and supported by only one full-time technician. These fixed-term staff members will also have to continue supervision for five postgraduate PhD music research students, several of whom are not due to complete their doctoral studies until after the fixed-term staff have been made redundant in 2018. The Vice Chancellor and the Executive Dean of Arts and Humanities have not satisfactorily addressed the importance of supporting the existing music student body at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Their proposal to run three undergraduate music courses and to continue to supervise PhD researchers under a fixed-term skeleton staffing model is unacceptable and it will not support the students effectively through their respective degree programmes, contrary to page 21 of Coventry University’s Corporate Plan 2021, that states, ‘We will provide all staff and students, whatever their background, with opportunities and support, in order to help them realise their full potential’. The three BA courses were removed from The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) only days after the music staff were informed and before a proper consultation period had taken place. This is unacceptable behaviour from the senior management of the ‘University of the Year 2015’ and it further contradicts page 21 of the Corporate Plan 2021 that states, ‘[w]e will ensure fairness to both staff and students in all our activities and be committed to supporting and furthering equality in employment, advancement, teaching and attainment’. The Vice Chancellor and the Executive Dean of Arts and Humanities have not recognised, or celebrated, the existing successes of the INTIME (Interrogations into Music Experimentation) research group, such as the highly successful annual INTIME International Music Symposium held every October. Over the last few years, the INTIME Symposiums have brought world-leading researchers and academics across all areas of music to Coventry University. In October, Ray Lee’s sound art installation ‘Chorus’ came to Coventry University for the INTIME 2015 Symposium and it was featured on television and drew crowds of people to the University Square, from students and staff through to intrigued members of the public. The closure of the music courses will also impact on future generations of musicians who may otherwise wish to have been given the chance to study music at Coventry University. One argument being used against the continuation of the courses is that the number of students currently sitting A-Level Music has declined from previous years. However, there has been no acknowledgement that many of the current music students have entered their music course at Coventry University with BTEC National Diplomas, A-Level Music Technology, equivalent qualifications or experience, in place of A-Level Music. Each year, the department hosts a series of free lunchtime concerts that are open to the general public. These well-attended concerts attract a core group of Coventry locals alongside the student body. With the closure of the music courses, these wonderful concerts will also disappear. On a wider scale, this decision is also detrimental to the people of the City of Coventry and it will impact negatively against the bid for City of Culture 2021. More information about Coventry’s bid for the City of Culture 2021 can be found by following this link < http://www.coventry2021.co.uk/cityofculture/site/index.php > Removing these three music courses will impact negatively, on a local level, especially upon the next generation of music-makers, composers, performers and music teachers based in and around the city. Both alumni and current students from Coventry University’s music degree programmes, in line with Coventry University’s Corporate Plan 2021, already take an active role in providing music entertainment and culture for the people of Coventry City. This was proved in July 2015 at the Godiva Festival, featuring solo acts and bands comprised of current students and alumni. An example includes the band “Rooted ‘n’ Booted”, who were privileged to open up the Festival on the Main Stage on Friday 3rd July: < http://www.godivafestival.com/lineup > More recently, a graduate of the BA (Hons) Music Composition course has achieved success producing a Coventry Christmas music video that has gone viral < http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/whats-on/music-nightlife-news/coventry-musicians-christmas-song-goes-10610429 > Coventry University music students continue to share their music in the city. On 9th December 2015, current Coventry University music students entertained a packed audience in Warwick Road’s United Reform Church, Coventry, showcasing a diverse range of music styles, from classical choral music, to chamber ensembles, to dance band music to rock music. A smaller taster of this showcase is available from the following link < https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UOPe6hTP7U > Page 20 of Coventry University’s Corporate Plan 2021 states that ‘Social responsibility will be embedded in all of our successes. The University will use its knowledge and expertise to contribute to the social and economic success of the local, national and international community’. The decision to close down the music courses will not only be counterproductive to the University’s 2021 commitment to contribute to the social success of the local community, but it will also be counterproductive to the bid for City of Culture 2021. Please, if you can, share the petition on social media platforms and encourage your friends and colleagues to sign to help keep the music courses alive at Coventry University, for both the music-makers of tomorrow and the people of the City of Coventry. If you are inclined you can also make a complaint regarding the closure of the music courses to Coventry University directly by following this link < http://www.coventry.ac.uk/life-on-campus/the-university/key-information/registry/complaints-and-compliments/?theme=main

Petition to Manchester Arena, Greater Manchester Police, Manchester City Council
Rename Manchester Arena
After the tragic events of May 22nd. Manchester Arena will never be the same and neither will the people who were there. We should change the name of the arena so not only the victims and survivors but so everyone feels safe. A concert is a place to feel safe and for me 'Manchester Arena' isn't a safe place for me anymore. Changing the name would be one of the first major steps in starting fresh whilst keeping the victims and survivors of May 22nd in the heart of the arena
Petition to Official Charts, Chris Austin
Stop streaming data count in the main charts.
Since 2014, the Official Charts company has chosen to include streaming data from services like Spotify & Deezer in their chart rankings along with actual sales. While the system has some advantages in theory, in practice it is a complete shambles. It has created artificial monopolies for songs whose sales aren't very strong and are only boosted by this streaming. It would be like if when vinyls were popular, that trading them with your friends counted towards chart ranking. It is ridiculous, and has led to such underserved feats as Drake's One Dance topping the chart for as long as Bohemian Rhapsody despite not even being in the top ten in actual sales. It is utter nonsense that streaming counts in the official charts. We need to stop this now. #StopStreamingSpoilingOurCharts
