FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
New Orleans, LA – Aug. 7, 2015
15-year-old TV and film actress Abigail Duhon has released a new EP record, “More Than Gold.” The EP features three tracks from her upcoming full album, “I’m Living Life,” expected Jan. 2016. Her EP album includes its eponymous single, “More Than Gold,” from the official soundtrack for the feature film, “Caged No More.” The film explores the grim realities of human trafficking and will debut Jan. 22, 2016. Abigail Duhon's “More Than Gold” pop-music EP becomes available online worldwide beginning Aug. 14, 2016.
Produced by Dove and Grammy winner Chuck Butler, the EP features three tracks with a bonus remix. Co-written by Duhon and Butler, her sophomore-release album provides a fun and edgy pop vibe which matches the actress’ personality.
“I wanted to write music that I know teens will listen to but also have a message in each song that shares my faith and views of how cool it is to be a Christian,” says Duhon.
Touring throughout the 2015 summer at various Christian Music Festivals, Duhon has performed for tens of thousands of fans since April in Louisiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Washington and Tennessee. She is currently performing music from her upcoming LP album, including those on the “More Than Gold” EP.
Duhon appears in the film “Caged No More” as one of the captured teen girls who are being sold into modern-day slavery. The topic is highly sensitive but not well discussed in the general public. The alarming rate of young children being kidnapped and sold into slavery in America alone motivated Duhon to want to participate in a film that brings about awareness.
“My song, 'More Than Gold,' was written to tell these young girls that they shouldn’t define their worth based on the horrible experience they had being captured and sold,” she explained. “I’m hoping it makes an impact to bring attention to this evil that exists and help it stop.”
Duhon also appeared in the most successful Christian film of all time, “God’s Not Dead” (2014). She will return to the big screen in 2016 in films such as “Camp Cool Kids” and “I’m Not Ashamed” (The Columbine High School Shooting Story) as well as the anxiously awaited “God's Not Dead 2,” premiering Easter 2016. She will continue touring for the remainder of 2015 with the Millennial Tour, along with other young Christian artists.
