“I am beyond excited to have signed with MV2!,” said Cherie. “It’s been an answer to prayer to find a company that already feels like ‘home’…a company that I can create with and feel the support and encouragement to spread my wings and explore so much more musically than I ever have before. I am so very thankful and excited to see what the future holds!”
