"How Did We Get Here?" Lyric Video Released

tion on We Be Nurses is expected to be completed in August. At that point, my fellow EPs, Adedeji and Michael E. Steele, and I will begin the process of finding a network for the series. In November, Adedeji, Eli Zoller and I produced two original songs for the pilot, "The Deal" (theme song) and "How Did We Get Here?"

While preparing to finish the pilot, and hopefully sell it, 74Aderemi Productions has decided to release "How Did We Get Here?" as a single. The track is performed beautifully by Broadway star Arbender Robinson ("The Lion King," "Shuffle Along," "Les Miserables," and many more). I have produced films, web series, radio dramas, an awards show and more over the years, but this is my very first professionally produced song. I'm excited to share it with the world starting today. Check out the lyric video for "How Did We Get Here?" below.
