Being Kicked Off ‘Survivor’ Helps Kick Off Jazz Musician’s Career

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being the first person kicked off Survivor isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, it’s helping to kick off one jazz musician’s career.

Sekou Bunch was the first person kicked off Survivor: Cook Islands and while he has no chance of winning $1 million, it did give him the chance to write a song about the experience.

The song is called “Survivor,” and Bunch, a reknowned bassist who has played with Rod Stewart, Whitney Houston and Stevie Wonder, wrote the tune within days of his elimination.

Some of the lyrics to the tune, which he describes as “be-hop,” include: With a strong desire/ You may get flamed/ But on that piece of paper/ You hope they won’t write your name.

Bunch may have been kicked off the show in the first episode, but he will be debuting the new song at the Survivor season finale on Sunday (Dec. 17).

The song will also be on his new CD, The Next Level, which will be released in February.
