LONDON, UK (Richie Stringini WebSite) - Boy band, mega band, you name it! US5's new single MARIA will be released September
28, 2006 in the UK. The single was a massive hit in Germany and its upcoming release is just part of the new wave of material from the chart-topping band US5. Two new singles will be released in the UK and Germany in the coming months.
This UK release coincides with the arrival of the smash TV series "Big in America" debuting on UK television. The show prominently features US5, a new sensational boy band produced by Lou Pearlman. Lou brought us Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, and O-Town. US5 is his latest discovery of fine talent and he is promoting the band throughout Europe. The band members include an international mix of talented guys.
Popular band member Richie Stringini has developed a wide fan base with loyal fans gravitating to websites for fan chat and web blogs. Unfortunately, his expanding fame has made him a target of Internet sabotage. He has survived a vicious extortion plot in Germany to exploit unauthorized cell phone photos taken of him in a toilet stall. The predictable breeding ground for innuendo and outright falsifications has spun wildly out of control. The predator who took the photos tried to extort a huge sum of money from Richie and his band. The German authorities have been contacted and an investigation is currently being conducted.
Once the story was seeded within certain chat groups, the story, like other Internet rumors and pitfalls such as Nigerian emails, alien autopsies and the most recent Mars hoax, took on a life of its own despite significant evidence that the story was false.
Richie and his US5 band members are now on tour in the UK. His strong support from fans and colleagues has culminated in the creation of a brand new online community at https://www.richiestringini.info.
The new site will go live on September 28th and offers fans exclusive direct access to the young star. It will contain an interactive forum for fans to exchange the latest information and much more.
Says web developer Andrew Casey, "This site offers a unique opportunity for fans to interact with Richie in ways that many celebrity sites don't really fulfill." He adds, "We're building the site for the fans, and of course it gives everyone the chance to see the real person behind the sensationalism and eliminate the unwarranted classic Internet urban myths that float around there.
"I think everybody will be quite surprised to see how unique and approachable the final site really is - and in the process interact with somebody who truly understands how valuable and wonderfully loyal his fans really are."
