19/06/2000 Quote from Rodney Jerkins
A recent issue of Time magazine featured an article on producer Rodney Jerkins from which the following excerpt was taken:
"The young producer is focusing on what he considers his biggest challenge: producing songs for the Gloved One. 'This is his most important record that he's ever gonna make and ever will make,' says Jerkins, perhaps forgetting about a little record named Thriller. 'He is the greatest, but you got people who say he can't come back. That's why we're working hard on it, to prove there is no one who can touch him.' "

Young American singer Anastacia is making her debut with an Epic/Daylight album called Not That Kind, featuring the single "I'm Outta Love."
In a recent press release for the European media, Anastacia talks about her 1998 big break, when she entered MTV's "The Cut," a star search competition where she made it among the Top 10 finalists in front of an eclectic panel of judges including Pete Rock, David Foster, and Faith Evans.
"The reaction was incredible," Anastacia recalls. "I mean, Michael Jackson called me at home! He wanted to sign me to his record company MJJ Music."
In March 1999, Anastacia signed an exclusive recording contract with
Daylight Records, an Epic label.
