Hannah Montana? It's Sonya Isaacs!

Last summer I was invited to be a backup singer in the new Hannah Montana movie that just came out! My friend Lisa (she's on my right in the scene) was my publisher at Disney Music Publishing, and she asked Jessi (another Disney writer) and me to join her as backup singers for Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus on 2 songs during the movie. We couldnt believe it! Actresses!! lol... We were given the opportunity to write songs as well, but I didnt have any luck with it... Jessi, on the otherhand,(btw: she's the girl to my left in the scene) had some amazing luck.... She and our friend Jon Mabe cowrote the smash hit "The Climb" which is now a HUGE song for Miley! What a great song.. and a great performance by Ms. Cyrus!!

We filmed for 3 days in Smiley Hollow Campground, located in Goodlettsville, TN, in the dead heat of the summer last June (08)... In spite of the 95 degree days with no a/c on set, we had an amazing time and got to hang out with the wonderful cast of Hannah Montana. Miley is very sweet, and is such a great actress... and all the other cast members were so down to earth and friendly too. It was an unforgettable experience and I feel blessed for the opportunity to be in it. I believe good clean entertainment is important these days. Kids need to be presented movies like this one that teach you to keep dreaming, but keep your feet on the ground! Hope you enjoy the movie!!
