Adrian Rodriguez: Rising Southern California-based horror rocker Characula (www.characula.com) attended Playboy Radio personality Jessica Hall's birthday bash at Sweet! Candy Store, where she celebrated with familiar faces including Kendra Wilkinson and hubby Hank Baskett, Chris Harrison (The Bachelorette), funnyman Stephen Kramer Glickman and many more. Characula was escorted by her guitarist Bernie Godwin III, son of renowned rock producer Dito Godwin (No Doubt, Great White, members of KISS, Motley Crue) who is putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album. Thanks to Characula's dimension-busting ways, she snagged her first-ever Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) nomination in the Adult Contemporary/AAA category for her latest single, a blistering cover of Bad Company's "Ready For Love,” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69iltZm-HkQ). "Ready For Love” also remains in the Top 50 on the Mediabase Activator chart, surrounded by superstars like Rihanna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, American Idol winner Phillip Phillips, J. Cole and David Guetta.
