Hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th holiday! I've got some news
updates for y'all and today I added something a little different... a list of special
sales and a notice from Security Pro News, which I highly recommend you sign up for their
newsletter.. it's very informative and can help save you from disasters of many kinds. A
big topic there right now, aside from new virus alerts is about scams on the new Apple
IPhone. Read and be alert! :)
Find Books, Music, Videos, Software, Electronics, Website Hosts/Servers .... Don't pay the
high prices you find in the stores. I've researched the links posted to give everyone an
opportunity to buy great things at the best prices.
Artists, be sure to check out the "Info" section as it's been updated with even
more info.. web links, sheet music, instruments and more.

SongU.com: June Gold Stars and Birthday Special
This week's quotes:
"My husband, Steve, found a short article that mentioned SongU.com in the Wall
Street Journal recently and I joined both of us up right away. There is lots of substance
on your site and you are very sincere in your interest, support for members and enthusiasm
in songwriting. Thank you for creating this great resource!" - quote submitted
on 7/2/07 by SongU.com member, Karen H.
Hope you're having a great week. We enjoyed a nice 4th of
July holiday here and somehow our 4-year old Mia managed to keep herself awake on
adrenalin to watch the late night fireworks (her parents on the other hand were ready for
sleep ;-) Oh, and speaking of 4th, we just celebrated the 4th birthday of SongU.com
in late June! Details on our birthday special promotion where you can receive your first
three months at SongU.com for a great price are below.
By the way, if you're looking for feedback on your songs, we recently added an entire
track of FDBK courses that run regularly several nights a week. These 1-hour workshops are
a great way to get real-time feedback on the songs you're writing from industry pros in a
small group setting. You can bring any of your songs in progress to these unique
workshops, and some are genre-specific such as FDBK 115 - Christian Music with Sue Smith ,
FDBK 120 - Pop/Hot AC with Robin Frederick and FDBK 130 - Alt, Rock, Pop, Urban, TV, Film
with Gary Earl. Naturally, as with all courses at SongU.com, these
are included with your Platinum Membership for no additional cost.
Gold Stars - June 2007
Hats off to Rebecca Peaden who recently signed the following songs with publishing
companies via SongU.com Spin N' Pitch: "The Men In Texas" (My Three Kids Music),
"Even the Candles Cried" (My Three Kids Music) co-written with SU member Moker
Jarrett, "Thank You" (Bruce Allen Music) and "That's Where I Use To
Live" (Bruce Allen Music) co-written with SU member Chris Merkling. A Kodak
moment for member Catherine
Rushton who received her first ever royalty check for her
song, "Girls Like Fast Cars Too", co-written with fellow SU member Steve
Hostetler. This song was picked up by a publisher via the "Best Of
SongU.com" publisher listening area on the site. Also a Kodak moment for Joe
Lickteig as his song, "Leave It All On The Field" caught the ears of an
industry pro at SongU.com who volunteered to oversee the demo and pitch the song to their
contacts. I'd also like to extend a personal note of congratulations to member, Jim
Smith, who celebrates a song being released as a national single. His song, "This
Red Neck of the Woods" recorded by Bruce Stephens was released as a national radio
single and is currently going for adds on radio. The song was produced by Gary Carter (who
has produced Faith Hill). Be sure to call in to your local country radio station and
Spin N' Pitch Congratulates....
June was another great month for SongU.com Spin N' Pitch as several members either
received notes of interest in their songs and/or had their songs forwarded by the SU
screeners. As with the courses at
SongU.com, pitching opportunities are included with your Platinum Membership for no

Former Blackwood Brothers Pianist Passes Away
BETHANY, OK(Special Release) - J. M. "Whitey" Gleason, age 75, passed away
Saturday, June 30. He had battled lymphoma for over three years. Whitey was best known in
the Gospel World for writing hundreds of songs recorded by many of the major groups and
for his tenure as the pianist for the Blackwood Brothers Quartet. Some of Whitey's most
popular compositions were "His Grace Reaches Me", "Walk, Talk and
Sing", "He's My Dearest Friend", "At the Altar", and
"Nobody". He sang or played for the Gospelaires, the Sooner State Quartet, the
Blackwood Brothers Quartet, and his own Jubilee Quartet.
For many years the Jubilee Quartet headquartered in Bethany, Okla., where Whitey owned and
operated a successful music store. As a young man he became an ordained minister and was a
pastor and evangelist for several years. In his later years, Whitey was an educator and
was widely recognized for songs he wrote to help students learn and remember key
principles of math, language and geography.
Whitey is a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame as a member of the Blackwood Brothers
and received the Living Legend Award at the Grand Ole Gospel Reunion. Whitey was born on
May 18, 1932 in Kingman, Kansas.
