Taking the reigns of this musical endeavor was Voices Unitedâ€™s musical director, Aaron Fishbein, a member of Scott Storchâ€™s notorious hit-making crew who has turned out hits for the likes of Beyonce, Chris Brown, and Christina Aguilera. Joining Fishbein were Carlos â€œEl Locoâ€ Bodoya, a sound engineer/mixer who has worked with artists like Missy Elliott, Ciara and Weezer; Brett Simmons, a bassist who has worked with legendary musicians such as Fiona Apple and Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame; Bob North, an organ player who has had the privilege of touring and recording as an organist and pianist with Chuck Berry, Howlinâ€™ Wolf and Albert King; and Adam Ayan who has mastered albums by The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and The Foo Fighters .
