MY NETWORK DEBUT!
On November 15, 2017, I made my network television debut on the reality competition series, The Toy Box, which aired on ABC. The host, Modern Family star, Eric Stonestreet, scatted with me during my introduction on the show. I prepared my first CD/streaming album release, Synesthetic, in concert with the airdate of the episode. It was an ideal platform from which to launch my music career, as many fans of the show searched for me on the internet following my network debut. Articles were written about my appearance, some mentioning my aspiring music career, and it all came together for a brilliant launch. Thrillingly, I won the episode and my album went on to chart at #6 Google Music, Broadway & Vocalists, #9 on Amazon, Broadway & Vocalists, and #31 Amazon, Jazz.
My original toy idea, unveiled on national television, just in time for Thanksgiving!
THE TOY BOX
I received a unanimous vote from all 5 kid judges, and later carried the majority of votes against the competition at the end of the episode.
Throughout the series, Mattel and ABC were wonderfully promoting my appearance and my toy product, Poshies, via traditional television and social media platforms.
VICTORY IS SWEET!
One of the biggest thrills of my life was pitching my product concept. But winning the episode was just too sweet!
