AARON NEVILLE VISITS ABC'S MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SEPT. 13

 NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Recording star Aaron Neville and his brother Art will be the third quarter guests of ABC's Monday Night Football hosts Frank Gifford and Dan Dierdorf Sept. 13 when the San Francisco 49ers play the Cleveland Browns at Brown Stadium.
 Gifford and Aaron Neville discovered their mutual admiration three weeks ago when they were seated together on a flight from Seattle to New Orleans. Neville was headed home and Gifford was on his way to host a pre-season New Orleans Saints game. Gifford asked Neville to tag along, but Neville took a raincheck for this Monday.
 Coincidentally, Neville is the second in a series of artists featured in 18 specially produced music videos, dubbed the "Lay's Quarterback Jam," which will be broadcast during the musical opening of ABC's Monday Night Football telecast. For his 45-second spot, Neville re-wrote the lyrics to the Neville Brothers "River of Life" track from their "Brothers Keeper" album to reflect a football theme.
 Neville's two most recent solo albums, "The Grand Tour" (1993) and "Warm Your Heart" (1991) have been certified gold by R.I.A.A. The first single from "The Grand Tour" was No. 1 on Billboard Magazine's adult contemporary chart and the title track is bulleting its way up the country charts, a first for Neville. "Aaron Neville's Soulful Christmas" is due for release Oct. 5. Neville will be a guest on the David Letterman show Sept. 22 and the Today Show Sept. 23.
