Transcript for Coldplay releases new music ahead of ‘American Idol’ appearance
But now it is time for "Pop news" with Lara. Hey, Lara. Hi, you guys. Very special "Pop news" this morning. Michael, this one is for you. And me and all fans of cold play. Chris martin and the band releasing new music, first single in over two years, so excited about it. It's called "Higher power." The video looks out of this world. Check it out. You've got a higher power you got me singing dancing oh, yeah Where do you go after releasing new music? Straight to Hollywood, of course. Coldplay joining this week's upcoming episode of "American idol" as martin helps mentor contestants during the show's coldplay week. I love that. The remaining finalists will perform two songs in the one of their choosing dedicated to a loved one in their life in honor of mother's day, along with one song from coldplay's discography. They're set to perform "Higher power" this Sunday 8:00 P.M. Eastern right here on ABC. Also this morning as we head into mother's day weekend we wanted to tell you about a Connecticut mom deciding to completely revamp her resume. Only this time she's listing only skills that she's picked up since becoming a mother. Sydney posted it on linkedin with experience that includes working one-handed holding a small human in the other and thinking ten steps ahead of all times and lists she leads with empathy and adapts on the fly, she communicates powerfully and prolifically, guy, sounds like qualities any management team would want, I think. Williams isn't looking for a job, though. She is actually the global director of brand marketing at General Electric. She said she was motivated to rewrite her resume both by her own experience as a working mom during the pandemic and the experiences of so many others who have had to step back from the workforce during the past 18 months. Whether volume trir or not. She wants all moms to know the work you do is invaluable. Love that. And finally, the writing team at the animated series "The simpsons" needed a major journalist for a story line where Lisa runs for president. Now, they wanted someone with political chops, someone not afraid to ask tough questions and, well, they knew exactly where to find him. Take a look. This just in, Lisa Simpson has been elected the eighth president who did not go to college joining George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Harry S. Truman. Think about that when you're paying your student loans, Stephanopoulos out. The resemblance, uncanny. I'm surprised. You usually say that just for your closest friends. We've all heard it but now it can be revealed on this Sunday's episode of "The simpsons" airing at 8:00 P.M. On fox. Spencer out. My kids finally respect me.
