America's Next Top Model might be the vehicle for some women in their search for work in the fashion industry, but it wasn't the case for Sarah Vonderhaar. She didn't exactly win Cycle 8 of the hit reality competition, but she made a name for herself because of it. However, she chose to make the most of her fame by embarking on the path towards a music career.
According to VerveLife Entertainment, the former America's Next Top Model contestant will be included in the closed beta trial of MTV Games' "Rock Band Network." Sarah Vonderhaar is going to be featured in a number of campaigns, just like several other female artists participating in the beta.
Created by HARMONIX Music Systems and MTV Games, Rock Band Network enables musicians to author their own original recordings into gameplay files. It also allows them to sell their music as playable Rock Band tracks through the Rock Band Music Store. The open beta will be launched this August, and is running the closed version as of now.
Sarah Vonderhaar was obviously thrilled at the news. The rocker of Cycle 8 exclaimed, "I am so excited that my music was selected to be included in the new Rock Band Network! Not only will it be awesome to see my family and fans play my songs, but it is also a great way for me to reach a completely new fan base."
The Executive Producer of Rock Band Network/HARMONIX Music Jeff Marshall was glad as well. "I was excited to learn they had signed Sarah to the new division of the company and thought it was a perfect opportunity to work with her during the RBN closed beta," he said. "We will be exploring this new self publishing platform together and I have high hopes for the results."
While known for her stint on America's Next Top Model, Sarah Vonderhaar has already released her debut album, titled Are You Listening Now. With her single "All Mine," Sarah is surely doing her best at getting her voice heard.
