On Feb. 14, 2014, Glen S. Wade II, who resides in Gainesville, Fla., announced the perfect (slighty belated) Valentine's Day gift idea. It is his debut single, "Here We Go Again." The hip hop song will be released Feb. 17!
Glen, can you tell us more about your song and its concept?
"I wanted my first song to the world to be something everyone could enjoy. It is for ages 0 to 100. At the same time, I wanted to have substance. I wanted to state facts, as I do in all my music."
Who are some of the people involved in this great project, and what is "behind" their survival and successes?
"I'm talking about Cristiano Ronaldo, Ryan Lochte, Alex Morgan and Hope Solo. They all perform at a high level on and off the field.
The substance that I speak of is Kayla Harrison, who is not only a Judo champion, but a survivor of sexual abuse. Another is Claressa Shields who persevered through adversity to become the first American woman to win a boxing gold medal."
It sounds like "determination" is the middle name for these athletes.
"Looking at the determination of those women and taking someone like Misty May-Treanor, who has been the face of volleyball and a class act as well, I think she and they need a shout out from time to time such as with 'Here We Go Again.'"
Other names Glen S.Wade II credited were Missy Franklin (Swimmer), Helen Glover (Rower), Jessica Ennis (Track), Maria Sharapova (Tennis), Sydney Lreoux (Soccer) and Val Venis (Wrestler).
Who does your song project feature?
"The song features a talented singer on my team name Rosalind Saunders, and Drebeatz91 produced it. I recorded it at Skylab in Gainesville, Fla. Klean Beatz took care of the mix/master."
According to Glen S. Wade II, when it came to the video, Alex Cascio of Vibrant Media Productions gave it his all. Wade said that as a result the video is amazing!
Congratulations Glen on your first song soon to be released (Feb. 17). This Young Musician Examiner, and other fans, look forward to your debut song!
