That same year, Aviance made several TV appearances on the Fox Network through The Q-Deezy Show and Good Day Philadelphia. In addition to securing segments on local television networks and radio spots, Aviance capped the year off by collaborating with Live Nation, crowding stands at the Theatre of Living Arts venue of Philadelphia.
