“One day over lunch, I got a DM from NASA,” kuwento ni Reese kung paano siya kinontact ng NASA para i-feature sa video.
“They said they loved my super old and embarrassing ‘A Song about Space’ video from my channel and asked if they could possibly use it for a promo vid,” dagdag pa nito.
Noong una ay nahihiya pa siya nasabing music video ng kanta, na kanyang inupload noong 2013, dahil sa braces at lisp ng singer ngunit hindi pa rin niya ito dinelete.
“I figured it’s part of my history [and] it’s fun to make fun of yourself every now and then! Little did I know, it would be the video that NASA would notice and end up watching… it just blows my mind!”
Si Reese ay kilala sa kanyang track na ‘Home’ na isinulat niya para sa kasal nina Pauleen Luna at Vic Sotto.
