Arnaud Mariette Greetings from Paris, France Good morning ladies and gentlemen, greetings from Paris, France. How are you all doing, I'm sorry to bother you all but my name is Arnaud Mariette, 29, I'm French and I just wrapped up my first own 7 tracks EP album "Thru Heaven and Earth" by DIN_Asty & Dj LUN_Atic that I've been working on over a year now in US/French & Spanish Rap/ Hip Hop & R'n'B style.It's talking mostly about my life story when I was a 5 years old kid in 1994, I run into a car accident and I dived 2 weeks in a deep coma through the Light of Life toward the Gate of Heaven until an Angel sprung and brought me back to Life... As soon I woke up I was paralized with full right side hemiplegia and stay over 6 months in a wheelchair and got over 11 years rehabilitation afterward so I got strong faith since then. Through the music, I turned this tragic events into a very joyful and pleasent song and that's an amazing Gift from Heaven. My album gotta be about Love, Faith and Hope in Life so I'm very spiritual and I wanna spread out the Words of God through my music all over, such a singing prayer. As a matter of fact I'm coming over to Atlanta for Christmas vacation between 12/31 to 01/02 and hopefully, I wish stopping by your label and introduce you my album in person if you don't mind. If yopu have any question just in case, here my contact informations : arnaud.mariette@hotmail.com , +33619585624 and Facebook : Arnaud Mariette (Official Page), DIN_Asty & DJ LUN_Atic (Professional Artist Page) .Have a wonderful day and I wish to have the opportunnity to meet you up in your office if you please willing to give me a chance. I'm looking forward to hear from you soon.Thank you so much to all and you all take care. God bless and protect y'all by His Side Best regards, Arnaud aka DIN_Asty from Paris, France
