Be Part of the Worldwide Community That Launched the First Google+ Music Star by Joining Daria Musk and Fans Live From Around the World Online on August 20th at 6PM (EDT)

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - Daria Musk is responding to popular demand from her worldwide fan-base by announcing her 3rd Google+ HANGOUT CONCERT which will be live on Saturday, AUG 20 at 6PM (EDT). Google's new social network, Google+, offers a 10-person video-chat feature known as the 'Hangout.'

On July 16th, Musk held what has now been officially called the first pro-level Google+ Hangout Concert. Within minutes, hundreds of Google+ users from all over the world were lining up around the digital block with hopes of getting a front row seat.

Google's top engineer, Chee Chew, and others took notice and began adjusting the tech on the fly by 'daisy-chaining' the hangouts on their computers to work around the 10 person limit and get more people in. The fans began a community-organized rotation in and out of the top ten seats so that others could join in. To play for as many people as possible, Musk performed for 6.5 hours straight for an audience of global viewers, who interacted with her and each other face to face. One week later Musk played her second G+ Hangout Concert which was also live-streamed for unlimited viewing, and was another marathon performance, clocking-in at 7.5 hours long. It was watched by 9,000 viewers in 100 countries.

On August 20th, Daria will perform her highly anticipated 3rd Hangout Concert, which will further push Google's new social technology forward by featuring embeddable YouTube Live-Streaming Video Players that can be placed on anywhere on the web. To watch the show, anyone can visit or on Saturday, August 20th, starting at 6pm (EDT) and marathoning through the night. A 'Join this Hangout' button will provide anyone with a chance to grab a 'front row seat' with Daria and fans watching from all over the world.

Daria's first music singles will be released for download on August 20th on the websites streaming her 3rd Hangout Concert, and A virtual unknown before being discovered on Google+, Daria has yet to release her debut album, now expected this fall. Her first singles, chosen by her global fan-base, affectionally referred to as "G+niuses" by Daria, will include a FREE DOWNLOAD of her Google+ inspired song "+1 Me" and the dance-rock-pop track "You Move Me," which embodies the spirit of the global G+ community and the gratitude Musk feels toward them.

To pay-forward the attention and support Daria has found from her new global fans, she has organized a Global Give-Back tie-in with the ONE CAMPAIGN for her 3rd Hangout Concert on August 20th. The ONE Campaign, whose most public supporter is Bono of the band U2, is "a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressuring political leaders to support smart and effective policies and programs that are saving lives, helping to put kids in school and improving futures. Cofounded by Bono and other campaigners, ONE is nonpartisan and works closely with African activists and policy makers."

Musk's Hangout Concert will feature a ONE Campaign Call-To-Action asking not for money, but signatures to petition the UN to alleviate the famine in Somalia and other countries the Horn of Africa.

"Give-back is at the heart of my music career and I dream of becoming a global artist," Musk says. "It's an honor to have the chance to rally a global community to send their love and support to ONE and Africa."

Daria Musk performed for a global audience in the first-ever Google+ Hangout Concert, which was held less than a month ago. As she continues to push the boundaries of innovation using Google's new social media technology, Musk has found an international following for her music and she inspires people to get connected like a global family.
