The media have been overrun lately with stories of YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, etc., and how the Internet has changed the way we communicate with others around the world. Singer-songwriter Sally Anthony has taken this theory to the next level, using the power of the Internet to drive her incredible success. That online success set the stage for the October 23rd release of her new album, GOODBYE (Gracie Productions/EMI). In its first week, the album quickly shot to the Top 10 of the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, landing at number 9 and has since stayed on the chart for 4 consecutive weeks.
