The Universe is smiling as Jason Hartman. The former Idols winner’s current single "Say My Name” was selected as a semi-finalist in the 2011 International Songwriting Competition (ISC) in Nashville. The song was entered into the Pop/Top 40 category. “Although the song was not selected as a finalist, the status of semi-finalist is a great accomplishment in my career and a noteworthy achievement of which I am extremely proud,” said Jason, who is working on a new album release scheduled to hit the shelves early this year. Jason continues as celebrity ambassador of the International Anti Poaching Foundation and is an active member of the Board of Conservation Guardians. He is heading off with his band to Monaco to perform at South Africa Day in April and to work with world-renowned singer songwriter Umberto Tozzi on material for the album. Jason’s debut film “A Million Colours” hits local screens in April.
