Belmont alumna Allie Pedan Levanway has two original songs featured on television. Her first song, “Calling Me,” was featured in Grey’s Anatomy last week (the episode re-aired on Oct. 7). “Calling Me” is inspired by the novel “Gilead” by Marilynne Robinson, which Allie read in an independent study with Darrell Gwaltney, Dean of the School of Religion. The second song, “Skyline,” is featured in a commercial for the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
“At Belmont, so many intelligent and inspiring professors revealed to me the spirit of mystery in life, and they encouraged me to celebrate it, write about it and never leave it behind,” said Allie.
Both songs are featured on Levanway’s album “Alva Leigh,” which is available on iTunes. Alva Leigh is Allie’s stage name. For more information on Allie, click here.
