Nile Rodgers, Tony Moran, And Kimberly Davis Join Forces For New Single For The First Time Ever!

(NEW YORK) For the first time ever, music powerhouses Nile Rodgers and Tony Moran are joining forces on an explosive new music single, “My Fire,” featuring Kimberly Davis.

It’s an empowering track, meant to remind music fans that even on the darkest of days, there is a fire inside each of us that is ready to light the path forward to the place we’re meant to be.  It merges elements from Club, Disco and Funk for a next generation fusion of electronic music meets soul.

“I hope our song makes people feel good, as though they’re in the middle of a party, letting go and having fun.”  – Kimberly Davis.

“My Fire” is the fifth single release from “Moodswings,” Tony Moran’s double-album of music featuring 17 original dance songs and 14 original pop, R&B and alternative productions sung by today’s leading dance artists including Martha Wash, Zhana Roiya, and Jason Walker. The album draws inspiration from Moran’s 30 years in dance music and includes many amazing collaborators including with former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.

“Collaborating with talented artists like Nile and Kimberly is the fire that drives me to continue my artistry,” says Tony Moran.

“The fire that drives me is the rush I feel when connecting with an audience,” says Davis.  “It is pure exhilaration.”

“Hearing my words brought musically to life by supremely talented artists like Kimberly and masters like Nile Rodgers and Tony Moran is the fire that drives me,” adds the song’s writer, Mike Greenly.

Nile Rodgers and Tony Moran’s “My Fire” featuring Kimberly Davis is being released globally through Mr. Tan Man Music and is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon as well as all other online music retail outlets.
