BWW TV Exclusive: CUTTING-EDGE COMPOSERS CORNER- AJ Shively Sings Drew Fornarola's 'Eight and Five'

We're celebrating the summer with one of our favorite songs by Drew Fornarola! This week's video features AJ Shively singing "Eight and Five" at our CEC concert at NYMF last summer.
Drew told us about his writing process for this song and here is what he had to say: "Eight and Five is a standalone cabaret song about a sibling relationship in early adulthood. A.J. Shively's performance, backed up by the Cutting Edge Composers Band, was one of the highlights of my 2012. I hope you enjoy it!"
