Miko Marks Wins National Anthem Spot

- July 13, 2007 - Nashville, TN - Miko Marks to perform on Monday Night Football 8/13

Miko Marks, who just released her 2nd album, IT FEELS GOOD (Mirrome Records), won a prime time spot to perform the National Anthem ... the Monday Night Football season opener on August 13 when the 49ers host the Denver Broncos. The game will be aired on ESPN.

Out of hundreds of applicants, Miko was among the top 30 finalists invited to participate in a live audition in San Francisco hosted by the 49ers and the San Francisco CBS affiliate. Finalists were vying for the opportunity to perform in front of 70,000 49ers fans.

Miko's debut album, FREEWAY BOUND was named "Country Album of the Year" in the Independent Music Awards. Indie World named Miko the "Female Vocalist of the Year". And a red carpet event at the historic Avalon Theater in Los Angeles marked her win as "Best New Country Artist for 2006" from New Music Weekly.

The first single from Miko's sophomore project is a sassy tune called "The Son My Daddy Never Had" and it's being promoted to monitored radio stations throughout the US this week. A native of Flint, MI, Miko resides in the Oakland, CA area, Miko is a regular featured entertainer with the Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo, America's only touring black rodeo, and is promoting her new CD with a full slate of club dates and appearances throughout the states.

Miko can also be seen in a recent ad campaign for Varna Jewelry. The striking beauty appears in a series of bridal magazine ads publishing this summer.
