Hey, I had the pleasure of receiving an email from Mendi. Mendi is the proud mama of 12 year old Megan Rae. A name you should get more familiar with. Megan has a pretty powerful, smooth voice, and her songwriting talents are impressive too. I certainly wasn't doing this at 12. You can tell Megan LOVES what she does, and at the age of 12, she knows what she wants. It's awesome seeing how dedicated her mom is for Megan too. She keeps Megan grounded, yet supports what she loves. It's nice to see. Click the picture, and check out Megan's single 'Broken Hearted'. Don't forget to give Megan a 'LIKE' on FB. Spread the 'Megan Word'!
Mendi let me know that Megan will be recording more songs towards the end of the year, which will include pop, and other genres of music as well. Can't wait to hear more from Megan Rae!
Here's some 411 on Megan and her family :

"Broken Hearted" was recorded/mixed locally by Steve Chadie (sound engineer for Willie Nelson, Hillary Duff, etc) and mastered by Nick Landis of Terra Nova, Austin, Tx with local musicians as her band.
Megan wrote the lyrics and melody while her guitar teacher/performing artist, Ryan Holley arranged the music composition.

As a family, we are fully supportive of Megan Rae and her talents as well as maintain a healthy balance. We are so excited for her first single release 'Broken Hearted'.
