Over time he began coming to Nashville from his home in Memphis to work on more film projects. It was in Nashville that things seemed to be taking off so around 2012 he moved there. He was offered a job by Warner Brothers in Hollywood to Open and Manage Nashville Market for TMZ. He was offered a 3 year contract to continue but chose to instead start the company "Nashville Entertainment Weekly. It began with a need he saw of artists working hard in Nashville but not getting attention. It has now grown in a short time to be Nashville's #1 Social Media Entertainment Show with  viewers and guest from all around the world. It is now also the parent company for Nashville Artists management and Nashville Entertainment Weekly Records with Head Quarters on Historic Music Row. All of these companies are promoted though the one hour #TJTV  all new programming each week. "It gives Artists on the way to be seen to 2  million weekly viewers and  a chance to break the ceiling set by CMT now based in California." . It is now the Top Rated Entertainment Show in Nashville in the 10 P.M. time slot.  Although over the past few years he has enjoyed success with hosting on CMT, and even being a Producer for America's Got Talent. He is Focusing mostly building the brand with partner Jill Santibanez  Nashville Entertainment Weekly. It now offers "A one Stop Shop" for artist to have a Foot Print in Nashville while traveling or living out of town.   

Meet Jill Santibanez:
Jill Santibanez grew up in Orange County California, and discovered her passion for Acting in Los Angeles, acting and working as a Booking Agent on several Big Studio Productions, and becoming a SAG/AFTRA Eligible Actor. Jill moved to Nashville in 2010 to be closer to her older sister Courtney that has 3 beautiful children and who has lived in TN since 2000. Jill grew up in a big family, so family is a huge priority for her, so she's really enjoying being an Aunt. Jill continued working as a Booking Agent and Actor in Nashville, then later met TJ Cates on the Red Carpet of the Nashville Film Festival in 2014. Jill and TJ clicked instantly, with their passion for filmmaking and strong work ethics. 

Jill and TJ have since created the Television Show, 'Nashville Entertainment Weekly,' which reaches over 2 Million Viewers every Friday Night on Channel 49 in Middle Tennessee.

Episode Title and Description

Episode Title :  " The Purpose in his Music"

In this Episode Gabby G and David will discuss his journey and story growing up in South Africa, getting into the Music Industry, his faith and where he is today.  Songs recorded by David will be played!

David's Brief Bio:

He is married to Diane and they have three wonderful kids.He grew up in Cullinan and studied music since he was 7 years old. He started playing in the Baptist church at age 8. At age 13, David started to go on tour with Julius Magan. They toured all over South Africa. This is where he acquired his first taste of the ministry. He's always had a heart for worship but also enjoyed listening to the more hard rock Christian bands whilst in high school. Somehow these two met when the first “United Live” albums were released. The “Answer to the call” album was born out of prophesy that God will use the songs that He's written to shake the gates of hell. He doesn’t believe that this was because of the style but rather because of God’s presence.  "Amazing God" is the next project that David has released in September 2015. It is a celebration of an Amazing God and all the things He does everyday in our lives.
