Showin' Some Love for Andrew Belle

There's nothing stranger than realizing that someone you had Computer 101 with is suddenly a pop star in the making.

Ok, maybe alien abduction would be stranger. Or possibly sitting down at a table at a restaurant only to give your drink order to Barack Obama. Yes, that would definitely be stranger. But still.

You see there was this boy in my freshman class at Taylor University Fort Wayne. And his name was Drew Fortson. And he seemed nice, but I didn't really talk to him. He dated a Sophomore, so of course that made him automatically way cooler than any of us. And if I remember correctly he liked to sleep in Computer class. I know for sure that his friends did. I know because it allowed me to take the liberty to sleep as well.

He didn't strike me as the music sort. But then again, I didn't know him at all. So imagine my surprise when my friend named Kyle lets me know that this boy named Drew Fortson is actually getting semi-famous and his songs are being featured on shows like Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill and Vampire Diaries (his song was actually on last Thursday's episode).

And imagine my even greater surprise when I find that he's dropped his old name and now is going by Andrew Belle.

I swear this is one of the strangest things. But I am very happy for him. And I'm going to show my support by posting his music below and maybe some of you will be agreeable enough to purchase it.

  3. Yep, you guys are right! That must be strange! But just imagine how we must feel, watching our son get so well know? Seeing the world now love the music we got to hear first :) Watching ppl line up for photos and autographs after his shows? And he is just SO humble about it all? He tells us things as if in passing? "Oh, my song ____ will be on Grey's this Thursday". In just a little over 2 years, as Andrew Belle, he has put out 16 songs (EP, LP, In My Veins single) and so far, 4 out of 5 of his EP songs were on TV shows, Veins was on Grey's S-6 finale, and 8 of 10 songs from The Ladder were and will be on shows. ("Reach" is on MTV's "World of Jenks" Monday and "Tower" will be on "The Greek" in January). He and his manager are prob reading this now, b/c they, and I, get "Google Alerts" with anything Andrew Belle, ha! He's got a song in a movie next year (Something Borrowed w/Kate Hudson & Krasinski) and has recorded what we all believe to be his BEST song ever (to be released) and a few other NEW ones, but we can't plug those just yet :) He doesn't brag about himself, but WE sure brag for him, ha! Stay tuned...I can tell you that there is nothing BUT good things yet to come from Andrew Belle, if the Lord tarries. ~Rick

    How exciting! So many good things!!
    I'll be sure to keep an eye out for things to come, and show support in my own way.
    God is good!
