Filipina singer-songwriter Reese Lansangan’s 7-year old song “A Song About Space” has been featured in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s #LaunchAmerica online campaign.
“When a song you wrote about space & exploration 7 years ago makes it to NASA… I am OVER the moon (pun intended) and I don’t think I’ll ever get over it”, the 29-year-old musician expressed her happiness through her Twitter account.
“It’s a big deal to me that my music was recognized by NASA, a presence that has inspired so many creative passion projects I’ve had over the years. I’m thankful for the overwhelming support you’ve shown me”, Reese shared on a vlog post about her song got featured by NASA. Watch the video below.
On Instagram, she shared her reaction when NASA reached to her through DM to possibly use her song from 2016 debut album “Arigato, Internet!” for a promotional video. “One day over lunch, I got a DM from NASA (yep, the one with 57M followers…) and I almost choked on my water.”
“They said they loved my super old and embarrassing “A Song About Space” video from my channel and asked if they could possibly use it for a promo vid.” she said.
She also revealed that she almost deleted the video of the said song for two reasons: “1) I still had braces & 2) I lisped (lithped)”. But she figured it’s part of her history and “it’s fun to make fun of yourself every now and then!”.
“I guess there’s a lesson in there somewhere – to honor yourself always – your lovable, bewildering, sometimes even embarrassing self! So from the bottom of NENE REESE’s heart – a sincere thank you to the universe for this tiny, tiny victory.”, Reese shared a lesson learned before she ended her IG post.
