Las Vegas Disc Jockey John Dote\' Scores Hit With \"I Need You\" by Lee Ann Rimes

Capitol Records / Celebrity Entertainment
John Dote' And Lee Ann Rimes

The motive was to make people ask questions about this man Jesus, a man that we
recognize as starting the dateline. By Toby M., de Talk

In the year 2000, Las Vegas Disc Jockey John Dote\' found himself at the center of
the promotional arena for Capitol Records. As the host and head of A&R for the TV
series \"NightBeat In Las Vegas\", history was in the making for both Dote\' and
Capitol. The label had just released music from and inspired by \"Jesus\", the epic
mini series. The first major network broadcast event of the year 2000 is \"Jesus\",
the four-hour CBS televison mini-series airing in the United States during May
sweeps. The mini-series, produced by the award-winning Five Mile River Films, Ltd.
production company, boasts an all-star international cast headed by Jeremy Sisto as
Jesus Of Nazareth, Gary Oldman as Pontius Pilate, Armin Mueller-Stall as Joesph,
Jacqueline Bisset as Mary, mother of Jesus, Debra Messing as Mary Magdalene, David
O\'Hara as John the Baptist and Jeroen Krabbe as a \"modern\" Satan.

If the coming of \"Jesus\" is one of the most eagerly-awaited broadcast events of the
young millennium, then the release of Music From (And Inspired By) \"Jesus\", the
original multi-format soundtrack album on Sparrow/Capitol Records, is the kind of
recording event for which people have been known to wait a lifetime. The honors were
bestowed upon John Dote\' from Capitol Records who promoted the music extensively and
religously on \"NightBeat\". The first single from the collection, which featured
newly recorded material from pop, rock country, R&B, classical and Contemporary
Christian superstars, was Lee Ann Rimes\' \"I Need You\", which was being worked at
mainstream Adult Contemporary, Top 40 and Country formats.

Her video from the single aired on \"NightBeat\" and Dote\' knew he had a hit on his
hands. It would be hard to say who broke the record first, NightBeat with John
Dote\', MTV or VH1. But one can only assume that with as large of a stockpile of new
releases as MTV and VH1 have to assort through, Dote\' may have found Rimes first.
Her record \"I Need You\" climbed to the top of Dote\'s top 5 list, top of Billboard
Magazine and turned multi-platinum.

Platinum artist Edwin McCain\'s original contribution to the collection crossed the
pop artist over to a new audience. McCain\'s \"Jesus, He Loves Me,\" inspired by the
old children\'s chorus \"Jesus Loves Me\", was the album\'s first single at Contemporary
Christian radio. \"The notion is that no matter what, Jesus does love you and no
matter what type of person you are, you can always seek forgiveness,\" says McCain.
