American Idol & rsb??



Friends.
i know. i know.
we're having a hard time believing it as well.
i mean i've spent many a night trying to dance like Justin Guarini & sing like Ruben Studdard - neither worked out too well, mind you - but never dreamed we'd be a part of the new season in some small way.


The fine folks at American Idol are playing RISE on their new commercials promoting the upcoming season starting in January - and we're thrilled about being a part of the ads!
What? No my uncle does not work for Simon Cowell, why would you say that? anyway...

seriously, you can see for your own eyes.. click on the link below:

Be on the lookout for the spots, airing on FOX (of course) throughout the holidays.
There's even a moment when the band name and song title flash on the screen. crazy!

Thanks to everybody who has emailed or called to let us know they saw the commercial.

If you see it, please comment on the blog and let us know.
with love from all in rsb land,
robbie

Saw it! Great song! Great show. That's the most interesting American Idol news since Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul came out. Can hardly wait for the next season. Thanks for the post and the link!

I saw the commercial last night and it was driving me crazy trying to figure out what that song was! It just happened to be on my Napster Playlist that I listen to every day!

I hope that you get to perform it live on the show during the season!

I saw it yesterday, too, but the one I saw was much longer than the one you link to and featured much more of the song. It was sweet. Congrats, guys!

I just bought your new CD on itunes a couple of weeks ago after hearing you with David Crowder. Love it! My praise band is really enjoying working out some of your songs. What to my surprise to see the new Idol ad and - wait a minute - I know that song! Awesome! Congrats! Hopefully that will lead to a performance on the show and a chance to give your testimony!

Keep bringing on the great music.
