The CD, now available on iTunes and other online stores has gained the attention of a Grammy-winning engineer. Songs from the CD have been selected for an upcoming movie starring the Mixon brothers and Deion Sanders. "We are seeing a great deal of interest, especially from college and corporate markets who are interested in booking a Jose Hendrix concert. Jose Hendrix and his band offer a show that is dynamic and lively, with lots of percussion and dancing", said Kelly Myers. "We are now developing a recording studio program to be used in AIDS orphanages in Africa and schools and in the United States. The music production studios, some operating wirelessly, will aim to give hope and new opportunities to those in underpriveledged areas of the world. We continue to focus on growing micro-economies of musicians and dancers in Democratic Republic of Congo where their is a rich pool of talented and disciplined artists. Through the use of the Internet and wireless technologies, collaborating can enrich and provide access to new talent", Kelly Myers said.
