I'm Letting Go
As an actress and singer, Sally Colón has used a unique palette of talents to embark on her destiny. Since leaving Dreamworks Records, her current focuses are: producing and hosting Tour TV, a reality tv show that takes you behind the scenes of a traveling concert tour. The Chicago native's musical roots began at the tender age of 6 singing in her church's choir. Sally moved to Hollywood, California in 1996 and within six months, Sally landed a part in the feature film 'Eight Heads in a Duffel Bag' starring Joe Pesci. Her acting opportunities continued to present themselves, landing her a lead role in an independent film with Jenna Elfman (of the hit show 'Dharma and Greg'), followed by several network TV roles on shows including 'Suddenly Susan,' 'Family Matters,' and 'The Young and The Restless.' About a year after arriving in L.A., a friend in the music industry asked Sally if she would consider being part of a Latin girls' group. After meeting the other girls she agreed to be a part of the group VIVA, which is now known as Soluna. Their dynamic vocal blend and crossover appeal opened doors and started a whirlwind. The group received favorable press, including an article in the June 1999 Hollywood Reporter (Latin Music, Special Issue). The article credited Ricky Martin with 'igniting the current rage for Latin music' and forecasted VIVA among such Latin artists 'poised for mainstream success' as Shakira and Enrique Iglesias. It also credited VIVA with bringing their manager, Suzanne DePasse (former Motown Records executive), 'back into the music business.' The group finally signed a 1.3 million-dollar deal with Dreamworks Records. After two years, Sally realized that being a member of VIVA was not what she was called to do. So she forfeited an opportunity that most people would only have dreamed of, knowing that she was called to make a difference in the lives of those around her. Sally then began writing inspirational music for her new solo career. She now has the opportunity through several venues to speak with young people about destiny and purpose in their lives. In addition to hosting and producing Tour TV, Sally travels with her husband of two years, Stephen Petree who is also a musician and producer and their daughter Isabella. Together, they are using their giftings to change the lives of young people around the world. Sally and Stephen have recently started a Production company that produces quality entertainment and programming for youth.
