L.A. Based Singer Songwriter Misty Gonzales Teams With Broadcast Industry Vet Tom Wilson to Create FREEDOM CHILD ENTERTAINMENT, a Multi-Faceted Company With Educational and Philanthropic Aims

The Indie Company's First Project Is 'Hummingbird,' a 3-Song Teaser for Misty's Upcoming Full Length Debut 'Rock & Roll Freedom Show,' Produced by Warren Huart (The Fray, James Blunt, Daniel Powter)

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 5, 2011) - While many artists in the digital era form independent labels to release their recordings, L.A. based singer/songwriter Misty Gonzales and her partner, Tom Wilson, Cleveland based owner of radio and television stations across the country, have higher goals for their recently formed company FREEDOM CHILD ENTERTAINMENT (FCE).

The two are currently gearing up for the release of "Hummingbird," her 3-song EP that is a teaser for her full length recording "Rock & Roll Freedom Show," due in April 2011. Highlighted by its first single "Freedom Child," an emotionally moving song about postwar stress experienced by soldiers, and the freedom they fight for which allows us as Americans to pursue our dreams, was produced by Grammy nominee Warren Huart (The Fray, James Blunt and Daniel Powter). Misty is shooting a music video for "Freedom Child," complete with dramatic combat scenes, out in the California desert in mid-January.

The "hippie rock queen" -- as she has been described by Music Connection magazine, which chose her as one of their Top 100 artists of both 2009 and 2010 -- will be performing at the Key Club on the Sunset Strip February 2 and 23, which is also the official release date of "Hummingbird" from FREEDOM CHILD ENTERTAINMENT. This live stage performance carries the same title as the full- length album "Rock & Roll Freedom Show."

FREEDOM CHILD ENTERTAINMENT recently teamed with Wing and a Prayer Foundation whose mission is to rebuild and expand the efforts of Bethany Baptist Christian Church and School in Jacmel, Haiti.

One of FREEDOM CHILD's major domestic goals is building The Dream Ranch, a facility that would house a summer program bringing in kids from 12-16 years to help them develop life and professional skills from leaders in various fields, music and otherwise.

"When Tom and I first met the more we talked, the more we realized it would be great idea to form FCE as an umbrella to house all of our dreams, musical and otherwise," says Misty.
