I'm a huge fan of Jason Mraz's songs, especially I'm Yours and Lucky, so I'm really excited to listen to what he's got for the fans this time. And also I have to say my all time favorite song of MC Sniper is BK Love, but I will have to listen to this album to see if that changes.

[Reporter : ] That is my favorite song of MC Sniper as well! And he's got 20 new songs for us in his album so we'll have lots to choose from. And two of the artists are holding a concert very soon. The Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and Chung Myung-Whun are holding a concert on the 28th of this month and Jason Mraz will also be participating in the Rainbow Island Festival

I will definitely be buying the tickets for the festival then! And moving on, what else do you have for us[Reporter : ] I have the latest Hollywood gossip for you today. From the famous hit t.v. show House, to the singer Tony Bennett, all the way to Lady Gaga, here are the details on this one.

The famous TV show House is reaching its series finale. The cast and crew of the popular series' celebrated the shows successful 8-season run. Many said that they had absolutely no idea that the show would be such a hit.

[Interview : Hugh Laurie, Actor] "I often remark that the first season we did the show, I literally did not unpack my suitcase. I thought that nay day, the phone would ring and I'd be on a plane back to England. I cannot believe that eight years have gone by, it's sort of an amazing thing".

For some, they had mixed feelings about the show's long success. Robert Sean Leonard, who has played Dr. James Wilson in the show says he will not miss the early mornings.

[Interview : Robert Sean Leonard, Actor] "You know, I do get up at four in the morning and drive to work and work til nighttime, and the hours are long, and it's, I won't miss it. But I'm glad I did it, and I'm proud of it, but eight years is a long time, and I think it's time".

The series finale of "House" will air on May 21st in America.

The singer of the famous hit song, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco", Tony Bennett will have a documentary released about his life. The film, "The Zen of Bennett" shows Bennett's ongoing search for perfection. The documentary was produced by his own son Danny, who is also his manager and was premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New york.

The singer is now spending his days painting and organizing all his works from his recent Australia trip.

American pop singer Lady Gaga arrived in Seoul last Friday. She will be holding a concert at the Olympic Stadium on the 27th to start off her "The Born This Way Ball Global Tour"

She has also just recently been nominated for 10 Billboard Music Awards including Top Artist, Top Female Artist and more. The Awards will be taking place on May 20th.

It's a shame that House is already reaching its series finale. The show was so interesting and the actors were so talented!

[Reporter : ] It is very sad that we won't be able to see Gregory House be all cynical yet so smart on t.v. anymore but I'm sure we'll see all of the casts of the show in other shows and movies. And also for Tony Bennett, he is my dad's favorite singer of all time so I am just waiting for this documentary to be released in Korea so that I can go watch this with him.

That would be such a nice family date. I hope the it gets released in Korea really soon. And now you have the events bulletin for us[Reporter : ] Yes I do. I have a rock concert by Blonde Redhead, a DJ concert featuring DJs from all over the world, and a music festival with famous artists here in Korea. I brought it all just for you.
