British Airways is giving passengers a sneak preview of a debut album by
New York recording artist Jennie Walker from August 1, 2011 through
January 31, 2012 on its global in-flight entertainment system.
The album “Night Flight to London” will be available to customers on October 3, 2011 with a presale starting August 8, 2011. But all 12 songs from the album will be featured on all long-haul British Airways flights for six months, which reaches over 1 million people a month. The songs will be featured in the “Easy Listening” section of audio entertainment on all newer aircraft, while older aircraft will carry a track plus bio for Ms. Walker.
Ms. Walker is a 2011 British Airways Face of Opportunity winner, based on
the strength of her music business pitch around her debut album. She
spent time in London during February 2011 to perform and promote her album as a result of winning the national competition.
In addition to the inflight audio airplay, more of Ms. Walker’s story—how
she came to write the songs, and why now, at the age of 48, she is
pursuing indie music, after two decades as a charity fundraiser (having worked with former President Jimmy Carter & the Rockefeller family) —will be available for the special “In Conversations”
Her single, “Night Flight to London” will be featured in the “Taking it
Easy” radio show during the month of September 2011.
