NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The success of electro-pop recording artist Sir Ivan's new version of the Grass Roots 60's hit "Live For Today", and his psychedelic dance video, motivated event organizers of the upcoming "Steve Madden Music and Munger Music's Night Out with Gibson Guitars" to invite him to perform at the music/entertainment/fashion industry special event.
The show, exclusively for tastemakers, takes place on Wednesday, October 19th at Gibson Guitars Showroom Space, formerly the legendary Hit Factory Studios in New York City. Steve Madden is easily America's most successful shoe designer and is considered the fashion footwear mogul of the 21st Century.
Sir Ivan's "Live For Today" is officially a Top Ten hit in the U.K., being at #9 on Music Week Magazine's Upfront Club Chart this week. In just its first two weeks of release, the "Live For Today" video, produced by Grammy Award winning director Rudi Dolezal, exploded on YouTube with over 1,000,000 views. Now with over 1,500,000 views, the song has entered the Billboard Magazine Dance Club Songs Breakout Chart at #5 and is at #2 on the DJ Times Magazine Most Added Tracks/Club Play Chart (just behind David Guetta, the number one dance artist/producer in the world).
In addition, Sir Ivan's "Live For Today" single was featured during Sherri Hill's show at Trump Tower during New York Fashion Week in September, with Sir Ivan seated prominently in the front row along with guests including the Kardashian sisters, Donald Trump and Republican Presidential hopeful Rick Perry.
Sir Ivan's "Live For Today" single & video release follows his career changing previous dance single "Hare Krishna", which recently broke into the Top Ten on Billboard's Dance Club Songs Chart, leaving only Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and five others coming between Sir Ivan and the #1 spot.
The new single has been released through Peaceman Music with six very different mixes by top American industry DJ/re-mixers DJs From Mars, Chris Cox, Tony Moran & Warren Rigg, Smoke 'n Mirrors, F-Tampa and Ford, who also produced Live For Today, as well as Sir Ivan's first full-length 15-song CD I Am Peaceman last year. World-class remixers from the U.K. added to the package: Stonebridge, Buzz Junkies and Love Rush U.K.
Sir Ivan's dance re-makes of iconic songs from the 1960's and early 1970's started back in 2001 when he recorded the first ever pop/dance version of the John Lennon classic "Imagine," which became an international Top 40 hit on Billboard's Club Play Chart that year.
He has pledged to donate all of his personal recording artist royalties from full-length album sales to The Peaceman Foundation, a charity he created in 2009 to battle Hate Crime and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Sir Ivan's "Live For Today" single and his "I AM PEACEMAN" album are available for sale on CD through Amazon.com, digitally on iTunes, with exclusive additional remixes on Beatport.
