"SONGSALIVE ROCKS!!😍 Songsalive is responsible for getting me a contact with pop up music in the UK that has proven to be a fantastic company. They got me a high end commercial ad placement right away. What's also very exciting to me, is a new placement on a great new 2021 version of "The wonder years"(Disney, abc TV). My song was also used at the screening of the pilot of the THE WONDER YEARS - which was held at Martha’s Vineyard. African American Film Festival (MVAAFF) during opening night of their festival on Friday, August 6, 2021.Plus I have more placements happening soon on major networks, all thanks to Songsalive!"
