I mentioned him in my MLK Day post but I gotta tell you some more about Derrick Ashong! I'm so proud of him. He is a young man that my husband performs and records music with. The name of the group is Soulfege but the great news is that ... Derrick now has his very own show on Oprah's Sirius XM station!!!!!!!
The show airs tomorrow 1/23 live from Park City, Utah with a the band and celebrity guests! You can listen to the show online here if you don't have Sirius XM.
Check out his interview from this morning at Good Things Utah (at the end you'll get a cameo of my husband among the ladies in the 'audience')
Here is a little bit from the press release about Derrick and the show:
