Music Choice, the leading, multi-platform music network, and Hollywood Records today announced that multi-platinum recording artist and actress HILARY DUFF
will be the featured 'Artist of the Month' in May on Music Choice, the No. 1 video-on-demand music service in the country. Throughout the month, Music Choice will offer unique original programs featuring HILARY including an unprecedented look at a day in the life of the multi-talented superstar called "Hangin' With Hilary." The HILARY DUFF Artist of the Month program will also include a wide selection of her hit music videos to watch whenever - and however often - at no charge. The video selection will include fan favorites, "Come Clean," "Wake Up," and her latest smash "With Love."
HILARY DUFF launched her recording career at the same time she was becoming a film and television star. Her album "Metamorphosis" was #1 on the Billboard 200 and went on to sell close to 4 million copies with the #1 single 'So Yesterday.' Hilary's follow-up album, "Hilary Duff," featured the smash hit "Fly." Hilary's "Most Wanted" debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and was #1 in Canada. Hilary's latest album on Hollywood Records, "Dignity," hit stores on April 3rd, and was the highest selling debut of the week. Hilary says she loves singing and performing because through her music she can show the world her true self. Her words and moves reflect her mood. It is the most free form of expression. That's what Hilary feels is the great thing about making music.
"Music Choice put together a fantastic program for Hilary's fans to get an inside look into her life," said Disney's Hollywood Records Senior Vice President of Marketing, Ken Bunt. "Hilary is very multi-dimensional with all the different aspects of her career, and this will be a very special Artist of the Month."
