eDedication.com Launches Online Music Dedications

eDedication.com Inc., a personal communication service and gift center, launched the beta version of its site that allows anyone to dedicate one of more than 700,000 popular hit music clips to someone else.

The music dedicated plays within the browser; no plug-ins or other applications are needed. Dedicating a song is as simple as sending an e-mail, the company said.

The eDedication.com service is based on on-air radio dedications, which have become part of pop culture over the past 50 years.

eDedication.com also serves as an online music store, allowing either the dedicator or dedication recipient to purchase any of the music found on eDedication.com Most clips are 30 seconds long; classical and jazz clips are 60 seconds each.

A search engine allows site visitors to search by artist, by album or by song or do a combination search.

eDedication.com was founded by Christopher V. Sherman, also the founder of UGO LLC, now UGO Networks Inc., a publisher and aggregator of entertainment on the Internet. In 1994, Sherman founded the newswire service Multimedia Wire.
