Nielson Broadcasting is best known as the company that rates the popularity of television programs. In addition to T.V., the company is also diversified in several music entertainment properties, and is the owner of Billboard magazine, as well as SoundScan.

JORDAN & DESTINY:WE MADE IT
Prod. by Selah Music:SINGLE COMING SOON ENJOY THE VID
Jordan & Destiny Tatem of Gutta Most Generals are the new "Teen Sensation" that every one will soon be talking about. As the daughters of The General DeShawn Tatem, the expectation for these ladies to perform in excellence is high. After listening to them in a recent studio session and witnessing a live performance, these song birds may exceed all expectation.
"We Made It" is an inspirational song with a happy feel. The song celebrates the completing of a difficult task. Nothing in particular, it could be a graduation, a project, a contest any event that required dedication and focus will do.
These teenage girls sing with such passion and conviction. If the listener would close their eyes they would swear up and down that Jordan and Destiny are well beyond their years. Born and raised in a musical environment helped develop their skill. At the humble ages of 11 & 12 They shocked their Gutta Most Generals' team when they asked to present a song they had been working on. The entire team was pleasantly surprised. The General begin to train them, and well, the rest is history.
Jordan & Destiny rocks "We Made It" Live and Acapella. Stay tuned for the official studio release. Salute these young ladies as they add a unique dynamic to GMG.
