“Since that episode was posted we’ve been getting donations and requests for our CD from across the country," said KAS spokesman Todd Wellington. "Texas, Minnesota, Florida, California Connecticut, Indiana...All because people like the music they heard. That's a well deserved compliment for the kids who made this music."
Gold Shaw Farm host Morgan Gold said he became a fan of the Kingdom All Stars after hearng them perform at a community event.
"The Kingdom All Stars make great music," said Gold. "I'm so glad I was able to feature what they do in one of my videos. I think it's really important that kids living in rural areas get opportunities in the arts. That's why I'm so supportive of what the Kingdom All Stars do."
"SmarticlePhysics" was written at the Morse Center for the Arts on the campus of St. Johnsbury Academy and recorded at Dreamery Productions in West Barnet.
