Surgery, it was a 50/50 chance coming out. However, after being vertical and beating the "Big C", it was a chance
to give back to other musicians, family, and friends, who might be going thru anything. Also, the series of horrific incidents
of people across the country, leaving their homes, and never returning the same day, was enough to pen the song, Be Ready.

Jazz Harpist Mariea Antoinette Released 'So Amazing' Single, Covers Luther Vandross Hit Song
Diego, CA) - Harpist Mariea Antoinette releases Luther Vandross cover "So Amazing."
It was sparked by a million-dollar wedding and the bride-to-be commissioned Urban Jazz harpist Mariea Antoinette to play for
her while she walked down the aisle.

Luther Vandross classic "So Amazing" and the bride loved it. Antoinette teamed with longtime producer Allan Phillips
to craft a beautiful and soulful arrangement for the occasion. Antoinette decided to record the rendition as a single. Her
sublime "So Amazing" just dropped and is presently receiving more than one hundred spins per week from dozens of
radio outlets, including SiriusXM's Watercolors.
"So Amazing" continues Antoinette's mission of placing
the harp in unexpected settings, proving that the ancient stringed instrument has soul and can groove. With Antoinette dexterously
playing delicate notes and strumming mellifluous harmonies, the single is illumined by lush orchestration provided by string
and horn sections, including violins, violas, cello, trumpet, saxophone, flute, trombone and celestial background vocals.
Phillips's keyboards and percussion anchors the track flanked by guitarist Evan Marks, bassist Nathan Brown and drummer Tiki
"So Amazing" will serve as the title track of Antoinette's fourth album, which she anticipates
releasing next spring, perfectly timed for wedding season. In December, she'll shoot her first PBS special with her band and
a string section at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, which will be titled "An Intimate
Evening with Mariea Antoinette."
Antoinette is an award-winning artist who performed for President Barack
and Michelle Obama, shared the stage with Ne-Yo at the BET Awards, toured extensively with Jazz in Pink, and has served as
principal harpist for the Los Angeles Southeast Symphony Orchestra. She's had records that hit Billboard's top five, paving
the way to performances at major jazz festivals and events, including Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival, Capital Jazz Fest
and the Women Songwriters Hall of Fame Awards. Antoinette has won honors from the Black Women in Jazz and the Arts, a Black
Music Award, and a San Diego Prestige Award for best instrumentalist. Her activism includes partnering with Daughters Lives
Matter, a nonprofit organization stressing the importance of healthy father-daughter relationships and positive imagery.
