NEW YORK, July 31, 2014
/-- Old Navy will have its youngest shoppers singing their
way into the new school year with the release of the brand's exclusive
back-to-school musical anthem, "Unlimited." The epic musical number

downloads of the song will support Camp Old Navy's programming with
Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
"Unlimited" celebrates both the aspirations and apprehensions that
come with going back to school. On her first day of school, a kid
Dreamer imagines all the possibilities for the new school year and
beyond, only to be brought down by the Womp Womp, a naysaying curmudgeon
who is a personification of her self-doubt. Despite the Womp Womp's
negativity, the Dreamer sings of big dreams, such as being an inventor, a
star athlete, and even the president. She ultimately finds her
confidence when she meets a fellow dreamer who becomes her new best
To help distribute the anthem, the brand is working with YouTube
youth multi-channel network AwesomenessTV, tapping into their arsenal of
talent. The video features cameos by seven well-known YouTube stars
from the AwesomenessTV multi-channel network: Hunter March, Josh Levi, JennxPenn, Kingsley, Miranda Sings, Mystery Guitar Man and Thats0jack.

favorite stars as a digital-style Easter egg hunt. Each star will also
be creating ancillary content on their channels to support the video,
using the campaign hashtag #BeUnlimited.
"We're excited to launch our first ever back-to-school music video as
a way to entertain and engage kids on the platforms where they are
naturally consuming content," said Jamie Gersch,
VP of Marketing, Old Navy. "We hope this song inspires kids to dream
big this school year, and are working with Boys & Girls Clubs of
America to provide opportunities for every kid to fulfill their

Along with creative partner CAA Marketing, a division of Creative

Broadway and Hollywood community to create the anthem. The song was penned by Tony-nominated songwriters Benji Pasek & Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, The Musical; James and the Giant Peach, The Musical; and NBC's Smash), and the fantastical Womp Womp creature was designed by Legacy Effects (Iron Man, Captain America, The Muppets). Directed by Matt Dilmore of Biscuit Filmworks, the video introduces two young talented newcomers, 14-year-old Isabella Balbi as "The Dreamer," and 11-year-old Jacori Neal as her best friend.

Promoter Travis Steele Books 'A Mother's Love' Musical In 29 Cities Across the Country
ATLANTA, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As Executive Producers Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker prepare to take their stage play – "A Mother's Love" – on the road this fall, they will do so in the capable hands of Travis Steele, Founder and CEO of Theatrical Works Live.
A man of many hats, Steele is an accomplished promoter in music,
comedy and theater, having executed a wide variety of stage productions
including "Peter Pan," "One Night Only" and "Massacre At The Mill," as
well as concert tours with award winning artists like Pretty Ricky, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Keyshia Cole and R. Kelly.
"I'm excited to be able to partner with the amazing team at Theatrical Works Live to take 'A Mother's Love' on the road," said Kandi Burruss. "We worked extremely hard on our initial run of the show in Atlanta, and to be able to take it on the road and share it with people across the United States, is a feeling that is beyond words."
Unsurprisingly, the wildly successful run of "A Mother's Love," and
its impressive star-studded cast, recently enjoyed in front of a
sold-out audience in Atlanta, prompted a national tour alongside Burruss and Tucker.
Fittingly, the three month long tour is set to embark on its cross country run this September from Columbus, GA – Theatrical Works Live's home since 2006. Thereafter it will appear in 29 major cities – Miami, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York City among them.
"This is a huge opportunity for us and we are extremely excited about
it," said Steele. "Not only that, but we're feeling the excitement from
venues all across the country. We're happy to help Kandi and Todd take
their brand to the next level."
A veteran of the entertainment industry, evolution is nothing new to
Steele, who jumpstarted his career by signing the rap group Hilltop
Players to Columbia Records in 1993. From there he found his way into
street promotions, which ultimately led to talent shows and other forms
of live entertainment and stage plays under the Theatrical Works Live
"A Mother's Love" tour is slated to begin on September 4th. For tour date listings and tickets log onto: www.kandionline.com
