Lights, Camera, Action!
A highlight of the past week was definitely hearing that The Vision of Love music video was filmed on Tuesday! Kris even gave us a sneak peek at the cast:

He also tweeted that he’s been continuing to record music (when he’s not learning how to make “really good coffee”) and has been busy prepping for radio promo:
Did a bunch of radio liners today in the studio. My voice is more tired from talking for 2 hours than it would be from singing for 2 hours.

Looks like @IDOL_Insider also snagged an interview with Kris so we’ll all keep our eyes peeled for that!
Last week we asked you to tell us your concept for The Vision of Love music video. Thanks for your suggestions!
This week we're asking: What have you always wanted to know about radio/spins/adds but have.... With yesterday being the adds date for TVOL on Hot Adult Contemporary, we know many of you might have questions about how exactly radio play and charting works--and we want you guys to pipe up!
Wake Up, If You Believe...
The Vision of Love did very well in radio contests around the US last week, with victories in challenges in San Diego, Central Illinois, and Wilmington DE. TVOL also went for adds to HAC stations yesteday! Be sure to keep up the requesting, but limit to 2 or 3 requests a week if your station hasn't played the song yet. Once stations start adding TVOL, request daily! More radio requesting tips can be found here. If you still have questions, leave a comment on the guide and we’ll do our best to help you out.
The Vision of Love has had a very positive HAC Adds day, with 13 stations adding the song! Check out the latest Spinja Report for all the details!
Also, keep up with your regional team and make sure you're following them on Twitter! Let your team know how requesting is going… what successes have you had? Where are you hearing TVOL on the radio?

According to this tweet the second guitar goes up for auction on March 23rd, so you have a second chance to win a very cool item as well as supporting a great cause!
Have a great week, and may all your TVOL requests be granted!
