Lots of people are wondering what label "15 Minutes" is going to wind up on. Here’s the final information about this:

My long tenure with Arista and the genius Clive Davis is over.

What a ride it’s been. I will forever be grateful to this man for all the support and love he has given me. If you only knew how hard he’s worked and dedicated he is to me and my career, nobody would ever say one negative word about him.

I have been the grateful recipient of this man’s genius. And I will never, ever be able to thank him enough.

Before I began writing "15 Minutes", my goal was to release the CD on my own label and sign with a major distributor who could get the album out to everyone.

And that is exactly what is happening.

In the United States, the album will be released by STILETTO Entertainment and will be distributed by Fontana Distribution and the Universal Music Group.

As for me, I will once again become the "media slut"! I will say 'yes' to any station that is interested in helping me to promote the album. I’m even interested in going on The Weather Channel if that’s what it will take! (Not really The Weather Channel, but you know what I mean).

QVC has been very supportive and generous to me, so that’s where we’ll start.

My band and I have been rehearsing a presentation of the songs from "15 Minutes" and I think it’s sounding pretty great.

Stay tuned for announcements about other appearances.

Thanks for all of your interest in this new adventure.

Here we go again!
