-Just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you for helping make 2009 one of Shine On’s best years yet. This year was big in growth for us. We were able to expand and cover more events and bring you more interviews, news and concert footage. This site would not be possible without all of you.
This year we covered our first movie premiere, introduced you to some new talent, watched the growth of some of our favorites, celebrated 4 years online and overall, had some great experiences. We’ve met some amazing people on this crazy journey and had some once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. All of this started with a simple idea and some hard work. Never think your dreams or hopes can’t come true.
We want to send a thank you out to all those we interviewed this year, whether it was at an event, our exclusive one-on-one interviews or just a phone interview. We love interviewing and sharing them with you. We conducted more interviews in 2009 than any of our past years. Big thanks to all those who chatted with us…(Click inside for more…)
