LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 29, 2013) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF) ("MMR") welcomes International Music Star Guy Sebastian as MyMedicalRecords' Australian Spokesperson to Los Angeles. MMRGlobal CEO Robert H. Lorsch met with Sebastian to discuss plans to launch a "Don't Worry Be Happy" campaign (www.guysebastian.com.au) to call attention to how the safety and security from having a Personal Health Record (PHR) can prevent worry and help promote a happier healthier lifestyle. The MMR products and services that are the focus of the campaign will include the Company's MyMedicalRecords PHR as well as a version of its MyEsafeDepositBox. All monies payable to Sebastian under the terms of his agreement with MMR will be contributed to the Sebastian Foundation or other charity specified by Sebastian. Designated charities also would include The Children's Hospital at Westmead in Sydney, the International Red Cross, and World Vision Australia.

According to Guy Sebastian, "I love the idea of using the title of my song "Don't Worry Be Happy" from my new album Armageddon to urge people to open a MyMedicalRecords account (https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/armageddon/id566246842). The whole idea of having a Personal Health Record is so you don't have to worry in case of a disaster, emergency or illness because you are prepared for anything. Having an MMR account helps people live happier, healthier lives."

Guy Sebastian is an Australian pop, R&B, and soul singer-songwriter who is touring with Taylor Swift beginning December 2013. Sebastian was the first winner of Australian Idol in 2003 and went on to be a judge on Australia's The X Factor. His latest album Armageddon is available everywhere. Sebastian has released seven top ten albums, with six reaching the top five, including two which peaked at number one. They have all achieved either platinum or multi-platinum certification. He has also released 11 top ten singles, including six number ones, and three other top 15 singles. Sebastian is the only Australian male artist in Australian chart history to achieve six number one singles, and he is third overall for all Australian acts. Guy Sebastian is managed by 6 Degrees Management (http://www.6degreesmanagement.com.au/home/).

According to Lorsch, "Guy Sebastian is a great star with a huge worldwide following which makes him the perfect person to bring awareness to the importance of having a Personal Health Record. His music is dedicated to bringing the world together. Our products and services are all about bringing families' important personal health information together wherever they are in the world. MMR's plan is to leverage its MyMedicalRecords brand by taking advantage of global healthcare reform to offer our patented products and services and other intellectual property already issued, pending or applied for in 13 countries, including Australia."
