But if you think about how many millions of people are out there, that need to hear the message of the song, you can see we still have a lot of work and a long way to go! It can only happen with YOUR HELP! Together we CAN spread this message! All you have to do is copy and paste this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TPgJSZf5Vw in an email and then EMAIL IT to ALL of your Friends! This is a very important time in our American History, be a working part of it! We thank all of you who are helping America through many ways. This is our way and we want you to be a part of it.
We had an interesting request for use of the song a few days ago. A rep from Warner Brothers asked to use “My Name Is America” in trailers/ads/promos for THE CAMPAIGN, a movie coming out in August. Below you will find the documents they emailed us. The movie is described as:
Two rival North Carolina politicians with presidential aspirations tangle with one another. With the PRINICIPAL CAST: Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Dylan McDermott, Brian Cox, Jason Sudeikis, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, Sarah Baker, Katherine La Nasa, Kate Lang Johnson.
After careful consideration and a lot of research and meetings, we came to the conclusion that we would not accept and let them use the song. We are very serious about the song’s message and positive stance for America. We would not want it to become a joke or make fun of America. We have high respect for those who serve America in so many different ways and this song has always been dedicated to them and we don’t want it tainted in any way. So we are very very pleased it attracted Hollywood’s attention, but all that glitters, as they say, is not gold. 🙂 So we feel we made a respectable decision to keep the integrity of the song very high! Pretty cool feeling though, when they want to put your song in a movie 🙂 Check out the documents below to see more. Again we did not give them the rights to use the song and are very comfortable with that decision.
Last week Florida Senator Marco Rubio was in Panama City, FL and Todd was invited to be there. Below is their photo.
Speaking of Panama City, Todd will be performing his show every Thursday at Gulf World Marine Park’s 675 seat indoor, state-of-the-art theatre in Panama City Beach, FL! You can check out Todd’s full schedule at www.ToddAllenHerendeen.com. Throughout the summer season, Todd and his band perform 6 nights a week in Panama City Beach, FL (tourists come by the droves!) They are also the house show at Holiday Inn Resort in Panama City Beach. If you stay at the resort, you get to see the show there on Wednesdays and Fridays. Again all info can be found on Todd’s website. If you haven’t been to Panama City Beach, FL, there is no other beaches as beautiful! White soft sand and beautiful clear emerald waters of the gulf! We had to include a photo below, so you can see what you’re missing!
Don’t forget we have CD’s, DVD’s and sheet music, both SOLO and SATB For Sale at www.mynameisamerica.us! We also offer Bulk rates for purchases of 30 or more items.
