Soon after Soap Opera Network reported that The OnLine Network (TOLN) had revealed new logos for both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” the production company has now revealed more new logos! As seen on their official social media sites, Twitter (@allmychildren / @onelifetolive) and Facebook (AMC / OLTL), “AMC’s” initial logo now has life put into it instead of a plain white background, while “OLTL” is now at the center between heaven (black) and hell (red). The theme for “One Life” looks to play off of the fact that the series was originally supposed to be titled “Between Heaven and Hell” before ABC settled on the finished product way back when.

Are u dying w/excitement yet?l ol that’s all I can say with out getting in trouble. Such a blast in the recording studio with @oltlmusic today.

Just wanted to let you know that, as of now, I have no new news about who else is heading to the online show, when the online production begins, where it films etc. Not sure when our last tape date for TV is, although I’m told it’s just before Thanksgiving. Hope this helps. Sorry I cannot answer all questions.”

JUST HEARD: Frank Valentini signed EP Prospect Park ‘OLTL?’ Smart move that, wonder if there’s a chance they’LL call me? prolly SLIM 2 none : (”

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — If you watched yesterday’s (August 30) episode of “One Life to Live” you likely heard Kristen Alderson‘s (Starr) singing during the montage at the end of the episode where Victor Lord, Jr. (Trevor St. John) was gunned down by an unknown assailant. And if you liked the song you are in luck, it will soon be available for fans to download.

The catchy tune, which includes the show’s name as part of the lyrics, was recently recorded at the “OLTL” studios by Alderson on August 4, after it was “written” by her character Starr and her soon-to-be former co-star Barret Helms (Baz).

Alderson thanked her fans for their support following the episode, tweeting, “I’m so glad everyone liked Starr’s ‘One Life To Live’ song that aired today! All of your compliments mean the world. <3″ She went on to say that the show’s Music Director Paul S. Glass “is working on getting the song available for download for you guys asap. xoxoxo”

The actress also complimented Glass on the song, tweeting “Thank you @oltlmusic !! You and Dave are the BEST. The song fit so perfectly with the episode. =)” Glass responded in kind saying “Thanks! I loved how it worked out and so glad at the response! You were awesome!”

This was not the first time music from “One Life to Live” has been made commercially available for fans.  Back on Valentine’s Day, “The Sound of a Kiss” is the third “OLTL” album to be released on iTunes, and featured songs performed by Alderson and several of her “OLTL” co-stars. The show released “Prom Night: The Musical” in 2007 and “Starr X’d Lovers: The Musical” in 2010. “One Life to Live” also released the CD “One Life, Many Voices” to help with Hurricane Katrina and Rita clean-up efforts in 2006. And different songs by various artists featured in past episodes have also been made available by “OLTL” on iTunes.

In case you missed the part of Tuesday’s episode featuring the song, you can watch it here starting at the six minute mark.
