KFC SoundBite is all about giving young and upcoming musicians, artists, a space to create and share their music with diverse people. How it works, is that KFC SoundBite will allow musicians to upload their music on the KFC SoundBite website. Then different people will be able to log onto the site and listen to the different musicians whilst enjoying a KFC meal. This is great for musicians because they will be able to share links of their uploaded music to friends on social media platforms, they are able to receive feedback and have pro-active communication with their fans.
