"Autobots, Transform and ROLL OUT!"

Posted on 7/29/2012 by David Poindexter in Our Country; Peter Cullen Optimus Prime

I emailed acting legend and friend Peter Cullen (GOOGLE him), he's the VOICE of the Transformer Movies! Optimus Prime! I wanted him to hear my new song "Our Country". I have gotten to know Peter since our work on the final Space Shuttle Launch last year. I met him as they were premiering the Transformer movie (Dark Side of the Moon) at Kennedy Space Center. I was introduced to him in the green room at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) – he was eating lunch with NASA officials and they asked me to sing "When You Fly" to him. So, Lisa and I went in and performed it without music. I am pretty sure when we were done everyone had some tears in their eyes. He stood up and applauded. Since then, NASA thought it would be good to team me up with Peter to work on the NASA Optimus Prime Spin-off Awards. So, this past April, I was back at KSC to perform for the Opimus Prime Award Ceremony! Peter and I got to have dinner the next couple of nights with the NASA team in Florida. He was a riot! Each time he talked, I could swear he was someone else. He has so many voices. Optimus Prime being the BIGGEST voice! This guy is awesomely funny, you can tell why he is a star in every sense of the word. He is also one of the most humble men I have had the pleasure to meet. He is completely about helping the youth of this country and he wants so bad to make a difference in the lives of our future adults.

Radio Talk Show Host Joseph Kurt from 94.3 WSC in Charleston, SC heard "Our Country" and decided to do a whole show around the song! This guy understands FREEDOM and God & Country and what that means for this great nation. So I am thrilled that he will be debuting the song. But more than that, this guy is going to play a verse from the song at the beginning of each segment and then spend that segment talking about related things to that verse! Then by the end of the broadcast he will play the song in its entirety! AWESOME way to debut my song.

Our Country

Posted on 7/3/2012 by David Poindexter in Personal Note From AB Our Country; Patriotism; Anthem for the USA;

Wow! I can't believe it has been nearly four years since I started writing "Our Country"! Here it is the day before the 4th of July, Independence Day, and I FINALLY have this song completed! It feels like a God thing to me. The fact that this country is so divided. Maybe my song can be used to motivate EVERYONE that actually loves this country, our storied history, our Constitution, God and Country, and our FREEDOM! I want this song to spread like wildfire and to creep into every living room, every car, every patriotic celebration, every set of earphones as people move about their lives in America. That's my dream! I can imagine a day when everyone is walking down the street listening from their iPods/iPhones, Androids, whatever! No one knows you are listening, but as you do listen, you look around you at the other people passing by and somehow my song makes you see the world in a different way! A way that excites and empowers you; a way that motivates you and makes you proud of the great country we live in! That's my dream for this song!

Children's Dream Racers

Posted on 6/24/2012 by David Poindexter in Children's Dream Racers Children Hospitals Bigger Heart

This past Saturday, I helped good friend Mark Smith (Smitty), reveal his latest Children's Dream Racer at the University Hilton. He had called a few days before to ask if I could help reveal the mini racer with him! What a privilege to have such a well known NASCAR car builder, who just recently met me, ask ME to help him reveal this great car for Jeff Gordon's Cildren's Hospital. I know I have done a lot of work with kids since I first got into music, but still, this was his event and he wanted me there. So, I changed my schedule around and went! I was so glad I did! The company that paid for the mini race car was RESTART Your Life. They want to put one in hospitals all over the country, so they definitely have the right mindset to make a difference. When I got up on stage, they handed the mic to Smitty who said a couple of words and then handed me the mic. I had about five minutes to fill, so I did what I know best, I inspired! This isn't about me, it's about a wonderful thing this company did and Smitty's wonderful work to make a difference for kids! I could have gone on and on about how special this little car is for kids in hospitals.

A Note From AB

Posted on 10/19/2011 by David Poindexter in Personal Note From AB

Hey TRUE Friends! I know I disappeared for a while, but it was really needed. I had a lot of soul searching to do, plus I got married and wanted to start it off on the right foot. I am really glad I took the time off, because it opened my mind up to some really great new songs that I wrote during that time. I am busy recording in Nashville so that I can get those songs out there for people to enjoy.

AB's"When You Fly" Makes History!

Posted on 10/19/2011 by David Poindexter in NASA Kennedy Space Center Space Shuttle When You Fly Women in Aviation Special Edition We Made History!

NASA's Space Shuttle Program came to a historic end this past July. What a program it was! No other Space Program has had such an expansive impact on the US and the world quite like the Space Shuttle Program. Ansel Brown was a part of it all. From the launch and the landing to the Space Shuttle Program Celebration, Ansel and his song were along for the ride. No other artist, no other song made such an impact as "When You Fly". His wife and co-writer Lisa also contributed on stage by performing the song in Sign Language for the thousands of people gathered for the Space Shuttle festivities. It was one to remember and kicked off this heartfelt balled in rocketing fashion! Visit AB's YouTube page to see the videos related to the Space Shuttle events...
