NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jason Walker is back on top of the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Charts for the 3rd time, with his single "So Happy." Jason teamed up with two-time Grammy nominee and producer for Mariah Carey/Whitney Houston, Tony Moran, and American gospel singer/song writer Chris Willis (best known for his work with EDM star David Guetta), to create this uplifting anthem.
Jason, who grew up singing in his church choir just outside of Pittsburgh, delivers incredibly powerful vocals. "I'm extremely proud of Jason's performance on 'So Happy'; it is destined to become a pop crossover hit," said Tony Moran of the single.
The song which has risen up the charts and is the lead single for Moran's upcoming album, Mood Swings, has been receiving global recognition and airplay and has been licensed in multiple territories.
Jason and Tony first met in 2004, when Tony was remixing Jason's song "Set it Free," his second Billboard #1. During that time, Jason was signed to Junior Vazquez' label, JVM, releasing two albums, "This is My Life" and "Flexible." He has since taken the dance music world by storm, with chart topping singles, "Set it Free" and "Foolish Mind Games" and multiple IDMA nominations including 'Best Breakthrough Dance Artist.'
The stunning music video, directed by Karl Giant, was filmed in the awe-inspiring Salt Flats of Utah. Karl, who has shot for the likes of Cyndi Lauper, brings the track to life through the breathtaking scenery and visual direction.
"The dance track has the aptitude of pop expression with the agility of a dance floor anthem, a perfect combination for a mainstream crossover." – Timothy Rawles, SDGLN
"As far back as I can remember, I've wanted to make music; to sing, to write, to create. There's nothing in the world that makes me happier. Tony Moran is a legend in the Dance world. As is Junior Vasquez....and I've been lucky enough to work with both of them. They both have forever changed me as a person and as an artist. 'So Happy' is by far my proudest achievement. My entire being went into the creation of this recording and visual, and the response has just been incredible. I think that people really connect with the message, and the melody. It just makes you feel good....and isn't that what everyone wants....to feel good?" Jason Walker
"Jason Walker's voice soars while his feet stay firmly planted on the ground. With a voice like his, one's ego could very easily become overblown. Jason is the polar opposite. With all that he can do, and all that he does, he stays rooted and ready to fly even higher; taking it all in stride and being grateful for his gift while so freely sharing it with others. Jason Walker, the bold voice with the humble spirit." - Inaya Day
"Jason- Warm, funny, engaging and thoughtful. Attributes you don't always find in the fiercely talented! There's no ego, only an amazing voice that soars like an angel. Jason's stature belies the power of his voice and that's where the magic happens. A prolific songwriter and ever evolving artist always reaching for nothing less than the best!" - ULTRA NATE
"In an era of heavily processed pop music voices, Jason Walker is a refreshing change of pace. He can SING. And not only does he have technical skill, he has evocative tone and the ability to deliver volumes of story in a simple phrase. He is truly special." - LARRY FLICK, Sirius/XM
