"SAIL AWAY" Preview - Connie in California video passes 500,000 view mark!
We all loved what we heard. What started out as an "experiment" turned into a fun and popular song for Connie. The little video we put together just passed 500,000 views on YouTube!
Produced and released independently, the song is doing well on iTunes and the other digital download sites. We are starting to get radio airplay worldwide and we've made a distribution deal for the song in Japan, where Connie has many fans. The popular teen music website TweenPopRadio has a Top 40 list and Connie has been at #1 for five straight weeks... ahead of One Direction, Demi Lovato, Maroon5, Carly Rae Jepsen, even Justin Bieber.
As most of you know, Connie has recorded 4 new songs with multi-platinum songwriter/producer Toby Gad. Two of the songs, Connie co-wrote! Hopefully, she will be back in the studio with Toby soon, to produce more tracks with the goal of an album in mind.
Plans are in the works for Connie to record an album for the Asian market and a trip to Hong Kong in December to promote it.
Going back to SAIL AWAY for a moment... it is really important that folks support the single by purchasing it. Unfortunately, today, only about half of the digital downloads for songs are legal ones. Piracy has really hurt the music industry, the artists and all of the supporting people who make music for us to listen to possible. So, just remember how hard artists like Connie work to entertain us all and share with us their special talent. Isn't a dollar worth it to keep the music coming from people like Connie? If you haven't done it yet, please visit iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon or your favorite legitimate download site and do your part to support your favorite artists.
If you haven't seen the SAIL AWAY preview video yet, have a look... it's pure Connie!
