Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. Announces Qbanito's European Album Release

MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 18, 2007 -- Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GMSC) is pleased to announce Qbanito's first French album, "Partir," will be released throughout Europe.

AZ/Universal France plans to release the Qbanito album "Partir" throughout France and Francophone Europe by the end of February. The album is currently being manufactured and everything is in order for this mid-winter release date. "Maria," the first single from the album, hit the European music charts back in March 2006. In three weeks time "Maria" had reached the European top 20. The success of the single prompted AZ/Universal France to initiate a marketing strategy for the release of the album. "Partir" continues to do well on Canadian music charts and television, and Qbanito is looking to build on that success with his soon to be released follow-up album.

"The European album release is an important step in the global marketing strategy of our signature artist," stated President Fred Berlin. "Europe has an extremely large and diverse fan base. Success on the other side of the Atlantic is a major stepping stone towards success throughout the world. We are all very proud of the work Qbanito has done so far, and we are all looking forward to watching him get to the next level of stardom."
