After a Long Winding Road

Hi everyone,

As we approach Christmas time, and after months of hard work (and absence in blog updates), we are happy to announce that the Open Mic For Autism CD is in its final stages. This means that a brand new website, CD release date announcement, radio appearances and concert date will come very, very soon. We would like to thank those who had continued to support us from the beginning, and those who have contributed and helped this project along the way.

As a sneak peek, we have posted 3 tracks off the cd in the Open Mic For Autism music player at the top of the blog. Also, for those who attended the last Medicare For Autism Now! rally prior to the federal election, you may have heard the extended "Make a Difference' Track performed by the St.Patrick's Regional Choir in the video created and presented by Mr. David Chan. We have posted the video here again for those who may have missed the rally and the presentation.

Once again, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank all of you for your support and contributions!

DJ Villacrusis in Action!

Hi folks! We know it has been a while since to last update, but on May 7th, 2008, we had the one and only DJ Villacrusis in the studio at New Radio Productions. For those who may not know, DJ was the former North American McIdol Winner, and his voice sure puts Usher to shame. We deeply thank him for his contribution and his time. Also, once again, we'd like to thank Marek Joseph for his time and allowing us to use New Radio Productions for our recordings.

That being said, the recordings are notes away from being complete, and we will soon be entering the editing and mixing phase of the project. For those wondering where has the Open Mic For Autism sampler music player gone, we will be reposting it within the next month with sneak peeks of new tracks.

Also, make sure you tune in for our soon to come fundraisers, radio appearances, and release dates! Thank you all for your support!
