Joseph’s first “aha moment” airs on March 11th. The commercial will air at any time within the hour during the commercial segments of the program. All the posted times are EST/EDT. The times and dates are posted below. Feel free to scroll down directly to them if that is all you’re actually interested in… I won’t be offended. Honest.

Many have asked me HOW I got this opportunity? Well, last June we were doing some P440 MusicAlive! activities in Savannah, and I got a phone call from a guy asking me about the nonprofit. He explained that Mutual of Omaha was capturing “aha moments” from around the country and thought that we would be perfect candidates to tell our story. Mutual of Omaha describes “aha moments” as “moments of clarity that are defining moments where you gain real wisdom – wisdom to change your life.” Despite our busy schedule that week – 16 Live Oak Public Library Shows in 4 days + a fund raiser hosted by Jim Hunt and the Hunt Club – we agreed. That Friday, Blake and I made our way to the aha moment bus situated in the parking lot of the Marriot on the Riverfront in Savannah. And well… the rest is history.
After more than 1000 submissions on the aha moment bus tour (click here to learn about the tour), my aha moment was selected as one of the top 75. All 75 submissions were displayed on the aha moment website to be voted on in a national contest for the country’s favorite aha moments. Following a vigorous Facebook voting campaign by P440 MusicAlive!, my commercial made the cut from the top 75 to the top 25 — then finally to the top 10. The top 10 commercials won spots slated to air on television in the spring of 2010. Thank you to everyone who voted to help make this possible!
Sure, it’ll be fun to be seen on TV, but I find the most exciting aspect to all of this is the opportunity for Project 440 to get the word out about our ideas and programs. Inspiring children to make the most of their lives and giving them the tools for success excites me more than any television commercial could. Using music as that tool makes me even MORE excited. And the most thrilling part of it all is that I honestly believe that WE as a COMMUNITY can do it!!!
Thanks for supporting us on our journey!
