Oprah’s Choice Lorenzo Owens Tapped For Verizon Commercial

R&B Music’s Rising Star, LORENZO OWENS and has been tapped to star in a new national VERIZON television commercial introducing it’s new product, “Triple Freedom”. The commercial will also feature Owens’ hit single, “Wanna See You Smile” from his top selling debut CD, AFTER THE SHOW (D-Town/Musicmind Records). Verizon’s Triple Freedom allows customers to mix and match home services and for the first time, include wireless service from VERIZON WIRELESS. Verizon Triple Freedom links a combination of the Freedom Essentials calling plan and Verizon high-speed Internet (DSL up to 3 megabits per second) with either an existing Verizon Wireless calling plan or DIRECT TV service. Verizon Triple Freedom is priced from $94.99 to $104.99 a month, and savings range from $17.98 to $27.98 per month. The commercial was directed by Hollywood’s HUGHES BROTHERS (Dead Presidents, Menace II Society). On the fast track since his recent appearance on OPRAH-AFTER THE SHOW this year, Japan Military Base Tour and constant tour dates in the last 6 months in support of his current CD, OWENS is the music industry’s poster boy for success after OPRAH POSTAR MUSIC CHALLENGE two years ago. Owens was selected to perform (out of 15,000 hopefuls) in front of celebrity judges, Grammy-Award winning Alicia Keys, famed Music Producer Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and American Idol’s brutally honest Simon Cowell. As one of the final three contestants for OPRAH’S POPSTAR MUSIC CHALLENGE, Owens sang his rendition of Marvin Gay’s popular song, “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” and wowed the judges and viewers with his unique powerful voice. Owens was featured on OPRAH’S POPSTAR CHALLENGE CAST album with his soulful version of Stevie Wonder’s “All In Love Is Fair” and Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You”, released March, 2004 on Epic Records/Sony Music. Owens’ pristine vocal abilities and mesmerizing stage presence lead him to a multi-album recording deal with D-Town Records and Ryko- WEA. Soon after he began touring as the opening act for INDIA ARIE in a multi-city tour. Lorenzo Owens’s current CD, After The Show, now available in stores everywhere, contains a collection of songs that exhibit his natural ability as a singer and performer. His individual credits and achievements allow for intense acknowledgment from the critics, as well as his charismatic charm that attracts his fan-base. With the upcoming exposure that Verizon’s new commercial, “Triple Freedom” will afford Owens, we can expect even greater success for this talented entertainer! The commercials are scheduled to begin airing this winter. For more information on LORENZO OWENS, visit www.Lorenzo-Owens.com
