Virtual CD Release Party - You're Invited - November 17, 2009

To My Friends and Family,

I am officially announcing the release of my debut CD called, "I Wanna Tell You"
and 'I Wanna' share it with you!  It has been a long journey, roughly 7 years,
but we are finally here and I am thrilled to be sharing this special day with you.

To celebrate and announce the release of my album and I asking for your
support by helping with my "Virtual CD Release Party."  I know that it is a bit
unconventional, but it is a way for you to share in this experience no matter
where you are located or what amount of time you have to spare. 

So here is how it works:

First, go to iTunes or Amazon and download a song or two for only $0.99 or
the album at a discounted rate.  If you only want to buy one song I
would recommend "I Wanna Tell You" or "Hear My Prayer."

Second, you go to my website, and get a free
song from the album to download.

Third, forward this email along to your friends to join
the 97K mp3 download challenge

2009 - Let's Begin DuFore - January 15, 2009

Well, this is really quite an exciting time as the new year roles in. It is also a scary time for many of us as the current world recession continues to move in. I am confident that 2009 will lead us to an economic comeback and that it will be an all around good year. I know that times are tough for many, but for others, things continue to improve or stay the same.

At this time of year it is great to reflect back on last year, but more importantly look to the promise of the new year. Write out your goals and set your mind to achieving them at all costs.

I hope that you continue to check out my site and buy a CD or two while you are here.

Yours Truly, Tom DuFore
