“It’s just hard work,” says Reed. “I always wanted to make a difference in the [Orlando] scene… I always tried to bring different people out.”
After the brief performance at the star-studded party hosted by Interscope Records, Reed was asked by a producer – who works regularly with Lady Gaga – to write an upbeat song about friendship. The resulting track “I’ll Be Around,” written and performed by Reed, landed a spot on the motion picture soundtrack for My Little Pony in theaters today. On the well-received soundtrack, the young Valencia grad finds himself on a tracklist alongside a bevy of talent from music and film, including Sia, Zoe Saldana, Taye Diggs, Kristin Chenoweth and Emily Blunt.
