I follow Chris Bosh on Twitter. He just made an interesting announcement that he's signed a contract with.... Warner Music.
That's right, it's not an extension with the Toronto Raptors, an announcement most of us are hoping for, but an agreement with Warner Music Canada to produce a unique DVD and CD to be released in the fall of 2009. Chris Bosh also claims to be the first athlete in the world to launch his own application for iPhone and iPod touch on the Apple App Store.
The Chris Bosh branded CD will be a compilation of some of his favourite music along with new recordings from emerging artists. In a unique move, Chris is giving new, unsigned artists a chance to submit material for consideration on the compilation. Artists can submit their music through an interactive form on www.chris-bosh.com .
