HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — The NBA’s true renaissance man is at it again.
Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard is more than just the league’s resident musclebound man of steel and Defensive Player of the Year.
He’s a man of many talents, on and off the court. Now you can add recording artist his bag of tricks with the Oct. 26 launch of his debut CD, “Shoot For The Stars,” from Razor & Tie/KIDZ BOP.
This is serious business, mostly, with the All-Star big man delivering arena anthems and classic hits, plus the original title track , which encourages his young fans to pursue their dreams.
He’ll have a group of talented young kids” singing backup vocals on each song. On top of that, a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the BETA Center (www.betacenter.org), the Orlando based organization whose mission it is to provide children and parents with the knowledge and support needed for strong and healthy families.
We’re guessing no one had to twist Howard’s massive arms to get him to agree to hit the studio to record the 11 tracks that will be on the CD.
“This record is a dream come true for me in so many ways,” he said in a released statement. “Recording this album for me ranks with being the first pick in the NBA draft, my first NBA All-Star game and winning a gold medal at the Olympics. Razor & Tie and KIDZ BOP have been incredible and I hope everyone enjoys the album as much as I did recording it.”
We love that Howard isn’t just content with chasing and breaking records.
Now he’s making them.
