Author Evelyn Coleman is one of my dearest writer friends. I met her early in my career and we hit it off immediately. We used to spend what seemed like hours on the phone but now we rarely speak. Time and distance have a way of doing that to a friendship. But when we do speak it’s as though there’s never been a lapse. Evelyn is one the smartest and kindest people that I know. Sometimes I think she’s too kind.
I got an email from Evelyn today telling me about her granddaughter, Taylah P (aka Taylor), and the group she’s formed with a childhood friend, Kelci. The group is Vistoso Bosses, which means gorgeous in Spanish, or so Evelyn tells me.
As with any new group, they’re trying to build their fan base in hopes of moving on to bigger things. If you’re willing, you can help them out by going to visit them on myspace, where they’re being featured for this week only, listening to their songs and viewing their videos.
Now I’m going to be honest with you. I usually hate pages that play music automatically but I actually liked this one. It’s such a cute song and has a nice tune and beat. It seems appropriate for the teenagers. We could be seeing the next Mylie Cyrus (times two, of course)! Anyway give them a look and let me know what you think.
You can find them on myspace at http://www.myspace.com/thevistosobosses OR you can find them by going to the main myspace page at myspace.com, selecting the Music tab and looking for the group among the Featured Artists. Have it your way, as they say at Burger King.
They have a video series called The Hamiltons that you should check out. You’ll see why Evelyn’s so proud of her granddaughter. They’re adding an episode every day and by Thursday they should be up to episode 4. So let’s show Evelyn some love and support her granddaughter.
For those of you who don’t know Evelyn, you can visit her at HERE at evelyncoleman.com. She started out writing thrillers with What a Woman’s Gotta Do. She’s written a number of acclaimed books for children of various ages including The Footwarmer and the Crow, White Socks Only, Born in Son and a mystery for ADDY in The American Girl series. Freedom Train is her latest. You can go diretly to her children’s pages HERE.
Don’t forget to tell me what you thought of Vistoso Bosses.
