Beautiful On Burn Notice!

I am a HUGE fan of the USA Network show Burn Notice. Our good friend and collaborator Ben Watkins has been a writer/producer on the show for several years, and made a big push to get some of my music on the show before it goes off the air.

Listen for my song “Beautiful” on episode 710 entitled “Things Unseen” that airs tonight – Thursday August 15th at 9pm/8c on USA Network. “Beautiful” was on my album SOULvival and was dedicated to my oldest daughter Lily.

Burn Notice is in its final season, and down to its final 4 episodes and if you haven’t seen the show, it’s a lot of fun. It’s been called “addictive” and one of the “best shows on tv.” You can watch past episodes on itunes and on amazon, or tune in on Thursday night at 9pm to watch it LIVE! Tune in and Share this!

SOULvival is a masterpiece of soul/R&B ready to hit digital distribution outlets and independent terrestrial and internet radio on June 15th, 2010. SOULvival speaks with a polished blend of funk, hip-hop, rock, blues, even a little gospel, but above all else SOUL. “Beautiful” is the first single on a knockout debut album that has been described as a ” 30-minute comfort ride” from beginning to end.

PapaLee (aka William Hanford Lee Jr.) is a lifelong musician and singer who has been performing or producing music since the age of 12.

His music has been featured in films like “The Taking Of Pelham 123″ and on TV programs such as “The Bernie Mac Show”.

The release of SOULvival coincides with the imminent birth of papaLee’s first child. “Becoming a father really shifts your attention toward things like your legacy and purpose – it can give you a razor sharp focus and clarity.”

With BJP Entertainment, SOULvival will have exceptional marketing support behind it as well. BJP Entertainment has been behind the career of superstar actress and comedienne Luenell (Borat, Katt Williams’ American Hustle) – who is also featured on the album.
