My lawyer told me it was possible for an artist to get a visa for “outstanding performance” in music, but that with my current level of publicity, I had no chance of even applying.

When I brought all the publicity that I had received from my Cyber PR campaign to the judge, he was thoroughly impressed, and I won my case. I was awarded a visa to stay in the United States. ” - Josephine (Acoustic, Pop)
