The most important thing not shown by this video is the fact
Musicians On Call was equally Vivek's idea and creation ~
but Michael Solomon seems to be the public face for it.
Ah, Mr Tiwary. Such a modest, shy genius.
Remind you of anyone?
He is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of both the Wharton School of Business and the University of Pennsylvania’s College of Arts and Sciences.
Vivek also holds a filmmaking certificate from The New York Film Academy and is an acting student of Susan Batson/Black Nexxus Acting Studio.
