Meritxell Negre, the Latin Queen of Soul and the new Peaches (albeit 6th Peaches) in Peaches and Herb is now singing about a debt settlement program that is named the “National Debt Relief Stimulus Plan.”
That sure sounds like the name of a program designed to fool consumers into thinking there is some so or government sponsored debt elimination program. That’s simply not true.
Meritxell Negre is hired by DebtFreeLeague.com to produce jingles for the National Debt Relief Stimulus Plan marketing campaign. The professional singer-songwriter and community activist joins an economical cause. Helping Americans being pummeled by unemployment, rampant credit card debt, and medical problems, to avoid bankruptcy.
Meritxell’s voice and soulful intensity is also heard in numerous movie scores and jingles for companies like Sears, Pringles, and Covergirl. Debt Free League hired the singer-songwriter to record several commercial jingles that they hope will improve their branding.
The strategic move arrives at a time that millions of Americans are being late on making their credit card payments. The company wants to help.
Typically, debt consolidation causes a people to pay 150 percent more than the original debt.
So here is what really makes me laugh. DebtFreeLeague.com says it’s program is better than other debt settlement programs. And the quote attributed to Meritxell is actually not a quote at all.
In their press release they say “The tremendous rate of unemployment is causing a lot of stress in American households. But thankfully, Debt Free League is helping Americans avoid bankruptcy, which is crucial for sustaining our economic recovery”, Meritxell expresses. Seriously, expresses! No says, nor said, nor stated, but expressed. So she actually didn’t say that then. She must have ‘expressed’ it in some sort of interpretative dance or something.
DebtFreeLeague.com goes on to say “Meritxell just completed recording a jingle for their Spanish subsidiary, Libre de Deudas. Translated to “The real defender of the debtor”, the jingle is circulating in radio commercial spots running throughout the Houston and San Diego area.”
The Real Defender of the Debtor, are you kidding me. LOL.
