New York, NY (May 28, 2009) - LL
Cool J and Boomdizzle Networks today announced that Luther "Squeak" Jackson is
the Grand Prize-winner of their first annual "Boomdizzle All-Star
Competition." The Detroit, MI native won a one-record single deal
and the opportunity to perform on-stage with LL Cool J.
After Boomdizzle announced
their search for the next great artist, thousands of song entries poured
in. Out of the top finalists, Jackson's "My Dreams," a very personal
and moving song, was chosen as the winner by fans and the Boomdizzle
"All-Star" panel including LL Cool J, Marley Marl, DJ Cut Creator
and the Violator management team.
"There is nothing
better at this time in my career than to give aspiring artists a platform
to be heard," said LL Cool J, music icon and co-founder of Boomdizzle
Networks. "Luther blew us away with his amazing natural talent
and his personal story. We are proud to have him as a part of the Boomdizzle
family and help launch his music career."
"Honestly, I can't
believe that I won and that I got this crazy opportunity," said Jackson,
still in awe. "LL Cool J is a music legend and I'm beyond humbled
by his support of my music. This is a lifelong dream come true."
Jackson's single is now available as a free download to the first 1,000 people on Boomdizzle.com,
a digital music and entertainment distribution online social community,
and will later be available for purchase on iTunes.
The next "All-Star
Competition" will be announced in June 2009 along with exclusive video
footage of LL Cool J and Jackson's performance from the Jubilee Cityfest
in Montgomery, Alabama.
