On Wednesday, December 21, POISON frontman Bret Michaels, along with New York-based developers Echelon Creative Inc., is set to launch a limited holiday edition first look at a game-changing app: the Bret Michaels emoji and lyric keyboard with ground breaking lyric-centric technology. The Bret Michaels emoji and lyric keyboard will combine Michaels's most famous lyrics, sayings and phrases from both his music and TV career, along with various illustrations of the singer sure to suit the users every emotion, turning their thoughts into Michaels's best-known lyrics and phrases.
Allan Zhang and Sam Mendelson of Echelon Creative Inc. say Bret Michaels is, simply put, "an iconic rock star with one of the most recognizable faces, personality and images. Knowing Bret for his artistic creativity, it was truly exciting to discover firsthand his knack for marketing and overall business acumen. Bret is full of groundbreaking ideas that guarantee to make this app even better than we anticipated. Michaels displays passion, purpose, and inspiration far exceeding our expectations. We have always aspired to be 'drealists' (part dreamer part realist, a phrase coined by Bret himself),working with Bret has now made that a reality."
Michaels, who has sold over 35 million records and single-handedly turned his own company, Michaels Entertainment, into a hundred-million-dollar company with his multi-faceted entrepreneurial endeavors, adds the emoji space to his ever-growing list of holdings. Some of Michaels's partnerships campaigns include Petsmart, Overstock, Dr. Pepper / Snapple, Ford and Nissan as well as his award-winning "Bret Michaels Rock Star Suite" housed in in the Hard Rock Riviera Maya overlooking the stunning Caribbean Sea. His suite was the first artist-branded suite, which Bret helped design with the award-winning Las Vegas design team Tandem, and spans over 10,000 square feet and is also one of the top 10 must-visit destinations by such travel gurus as Travel Advisor, JetSet magazine, USA Today and Orbitz.
A limited collection of the Bret Michaels emoji package is slated to debut on December 21, which will include exclusive holiday and sports emojis with more emojis being added to the collection throughout 2017.
The Bret Michaels emoji package will be available on both Google and Apple's app store.
