Isn’t it lovely how music can transform the weather of a place?
Incandescent lights, sparkling wine and smooth melodies enchanted the audience at BET’s Music Matters Showcase at CAA, a concert and TV series on BET that promotes up&coming artists.
Amongst my favorites were Jennah Bell, with a voice so jazzy, so sweet that you can’t help but smile and sway to her heartfelt tunes, and Austin Brown, with his bumping dance skills, strong tenor vocals and infectious energy! Everyone was incredibly talented, inspirational and entertaining, from Charles Perry, Jessy Wilson to Leah LaBelle. My favorite part of the night was Charles’ call and response interaction, where he sang runs for the audience to sing back, which we did, no matter how challenging! 😉
There was an abundance of positivity, support and optimism in the air from the artists, attendees and producers! Even veteran artists Stevie Wonder and Chris Tucker came out to show their support. A huge thank you to Kelly Griffin for inviting me to the event and for introducing to fellow movers and shakers.
Truly selfless agents and music producers are those who derive joy from growing the careers of their clients and helping them realize their dreams. Having launched the careers of Kayne West, Chris Brown, and Lil Wayne, Kelly G is one of those few, and I am privileged to know him.
