By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Entertainment Newsweekly -- Next Galaxy Corp. (OTCQB: WILS) ("NGC"), a leading developer of innovative Augmented and fully Immersive Virtual Reality software and content solutions, is pleased to announce that Grammy-nominated music producer Willie "Bum Bum" Baker through his new production company New Revolt has entered into partnership with Next Galaxy Corp to create a series of virtual reality shows featuring various musical artists for the CEEK platform, a fully immersive social entertainment platform in development for accessing Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Content. The "docu-series" will be shot with 360 cameras to create the most intimate and immersive experience and designed for viewing through Consumer Virtual Reality headgear, such as the Oculus Rift.

"Collaborating with multi-platinum super producer Willie 'Bum Bum' Baker, who has worked with the likes of Beyonce, Pink, India Arie and many others is truly exciting for us. Attracting the top shelf of the industry to CEEK is indicative of the type of experiences you can expect to see on the CEEK platform. We have a very long list of exciting original programs planned that are bound to push immersive experiences to the limit," stated Next Galaxy President Mary Spio.

The series will feature both iconic stars and upcoming artists, and allow viewers to take a virtual step inside their experiences. "The world never gets to see the process of a megastar as their star rises; that's the amazing part for which only a select few are ever privy. Through this groundbreaking series, viewers will be able to come along to witness the birth of various superstars as well as experience their idols in a whole new way," commented Willie Baker.

"The CEEK platform is extremely exciting for delivering intimate fly-on-the-wall type content. To look around and be there in the room with your favorite artist is simply mind blowing. Once you've experienced fully immersive content, it becomes very difficult to go back to regular standard video. CEEK is going to transition Virtual Reality to the mainstream masses with this type of content and am thrilled to be a part of it," Mr. Baker further added.

During his two decades in the music business, multi-platinum Grammy-nominated Willie Baker worked with music mogul LA Reid, CEO of Epic Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment from 1997 to 2005. Willie has also worked with Johnny Wright, the man behind megastars like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Jonas Brothers. Mr. Baker has written and produced music for Destiny's Child, Pink, BoyzIIMen, India Arie, Blaque, Jump 5, Divine and Menudo, to name a few. He is credited with feature film scores (The Way Back Home, Elektra, Fantastic Four, We Were Soldiers), television soundtracks for Disney, Nickelodeon, Universal and Fox and has a Billboard #1 single and several charting songs. He has been named #83 by Billboard as one of rock era's best songwriters. His new production company New Revolt is featuring launching new stars such as Jessta James, a Scottish Boy Band, a country Trio from Florida and 14-year-old pop princess Maeta Rose.
