CHAMPAIGN & STILETTO’S

Atlanta, Ga.} Champagne and Stilettos was indeed a sparkling night of inspiration and empowerment. On September 3rd, this event at Atlanta’s MBarwas to celebrate the launch of Amber Bryant’sStiletto Mom and the release of Cara Alwill Leyba’s book entitled Girl Code. Both women and ventures were the highlight of the evening as a packed house showed their love and support.

Cameras flashing and question asking kicked off the night as Amber’s media friends, such as Upscale Magazine, Jubliee Magazine and Laugh Magazine just to name a few, began to dig a little deeper into the inspiration and story behind both Amber and Cara. While the rest of those attending the event got to enjoy the bar, music and food MBar had to offer, Amber and Cara had the chance to personally answer media questions and promote their brands, which they did with such poise, energy and honesty.

But the highlight of the night was the toast! Not an empty seat or cup in the house as a room filled with some of Atlanta’s most influential women toast to the ladies of the evening as they shared their stories and introduced to the city and now the world #StilettoMom and #GirlCode! We were excited to have guests from both WeTV and Bravo TV support this occasion.

After the toast, fans and supporters were able to get first dibs on merchandise and the opportunity to personally meet with both ladies and their special guest. Book signings and shirt signings were in high demand as the ladies of the evening opened their private room to supporters, fans and friends.

SKYLAR ASTIN, CHRIS LOWELL AND ANGÉLICA MARÍA JOIN THE CAST OF GRAVES

AN EPIX ORIGINAL SERIES STARRING NICK NOLTE AND SUSAN SARANDON

Series Created by Joshua Michael Stern and Produced by Lionsgate to Debut Autumn 2016

New York, NY – September 2, 2015 – Premium TV network EPIX® announced today that Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect, Pitch Perfect 2), Chris Lowell (The Help, “Veronica Mars”) and Angélica María (“Qué Bonito Amor,” Sea of Dreams) have been cast alongside Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon in the EPIX Original Series Graves, a single-camera half-hour political satire produced by Lionsgate.

Skylar Astin will play Isaiah Miller, a neurotic, over-eager assistant who goes to work for his political hero President Richard Graves at the very moment that the ex-POTUS is tearing down his own legacy. Chris Lowell will portray Jeremy Graves, an underachiever who returns from the war in Afghanistan to face the real challenge of finding his life’s direction amid the everyday chaos of living with his presidential parents and self-destructive sister. Angélica María will play Ramona Alvarez, the wry housekeeper who has worked for President Graves since before he was elected President and as a result, grown comically desensitized to the daily dramas unfolding in the Graves household. They join previously announced Nolte and Sarandon who star as former President Graves and FLOTUS Margaret Graves. The storyline takes place 25 years after the end of their term, and Graves has the epiphany that his policies have damaged the country for decades.  So, with his young assistant Isaiah, he embarks on a Don Quixote-like journey to right the wrongs of his administration just as his wife, Margaret, decides to follow her own political ambitions.

Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) created the project and will write and executive produce the 10-episode series.  Stern will also direct select episodes. Oscar®-winning producer Greg Shapiro (The Hurt Locker), Keith Eisner (The Good Wife) and Eric Weinberg (Anger Management) are also executive producers. Production on the series is scheduled to begin this fall and premiere on EPIX in Autumn 2016.

Astin is represented by UTA .

Lowell is represented by WME.

María is represented by Crossover Entertainment LLC.

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.  The then 15-year-old (she turned 18 this July) was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.

Mommies Who Brunch Inaugural Event with Founder, Jasmine Foreman, along with Special Guest Speakers Tameka Raymond, Robin Dyke, & Amber Bryant

PHOTO CRED: SWAY DAVENPORT

 ATLANTA, GA – On Sunday August 23, 2015, Founder/Co -Creator Jasmine Foreman hosted Mommies Who Brunch, along with Tori Williams Events, Pashae PR. With special celebrity guest Tameka Raymond, Robin Dyke, and Amber Bryant of Bravo TV Mother Funders. The event was held at 103 West in Atlanta GA.
Mommies Who Brunch was all about mommies in heels being greeted at the door with a complimentary pink roses and mimosa. The mission and purpose of the brunch is to show mothers that although they have so many other responsibilities, their health and self-worth is just as important and they are not alone. The first installment was an amazing experience and great networking opportunities for moms of all walks of life.
“If you’re uncertain as to what Mommies Who Brunch is, it’s more than just a name; it’s more than just a brunch. It’s an organization to recognize we as women, and to appreciate us as mothers. I’ve come to notice that as a mother, we get so sidetracked on our families, and our children and our career that we really forget to take care of ourselves. Sometimes we forget to take time out to find our sanity, or to spend time with our partners, or our girlfriends, and that’s what Mommies Who Brunch is all about. Mothers getting back to being the beautiful women we were before children, and the beautiful women we will become BECAUSE of our children.
I’ve learned that we become the Queen of Balance, yet never find time for ourselves! Being a mom is HARD, and no one said it was going to be easy. Sacrificing, the tears, having to change our whole world just to make sure that our children have every little thing they need, can get tough. I hope with my organization, you all will gain friendships, confidence and a newfound respect and appreciation for yourself because you truly deserve it.” – Founder Jasmine Foreman

FLEX & SHANICE SEASON FINALE

Los Angeles – The season finale of OWN docu-series “Flex & Shanice,” following actor and comedian Flex Alexander (“One on One”) and Grammy-nominated singer Shanice (“I Love Your Smile”) will air this Saturday, August 29 at 10 pm ET/PT.
The season finale picks up with Shanice’s mom Crystal at odds with Flex and Shanice. She’s still not feeling respected in the house and feels like her grandparent role is not held in high esteem – and she’s especially upset that Shanice is taking Flex’s side over hers. Crystal approaches Flex to talk about her role in the house and he lets her know that there will need to be “ground rules.” Flex thinks he has the upper hand with Crystal – but he’s horribly mistaken.
Meanwhile, Flex is also getting ready for his graphic novel release party. He is excited for the high-profile producers he’s invited to see “Joshua Run” up close, and praying the buzz of a release party will spark some real interest. He’s especially anxious since none of his auditions during pilot season have led to work, and he’s in need of a win.
Ruba finds out he has a half-brother he’s never met, a supportive Uncle Spirit persuades him to seek guidance from Flex, who found himself in a similar situation.
With everything else that’s going on in the house, Shanice is nervous as she heads to a lunch meeting with Tree Sound Studios super producer Mali Hunter. She desperately wants Mali to executive produce her next album and this is the moment of truth for her.
Catch the season finale of “Flex & Shanice” this Saturday, August 29 at 10 pm ET/PT.

The Atlanta event took place at the Opera Nightclub. Entrepreneurs were evaluated and received feedback from some of the sharpest business minds in the country, including lead judge Daymond John from ABC’s “Shark Tank.” The semifinalist winner was MOTHER EARTH PRODUCE,  asmall business started by a husband and wife out of North Carolina. They came out on top and received $20,000 and advance to the national finals where they will compete for a grand prize of $200,000.

We celebrate entrepreneurship and hope to continue serving our communities by being a resource for small business owners on their paths to success.”

“Having done my fair share of business pitching and evaluating the pitches of others, I’ve gathered a lot of expertise in this area that I always like passing along to the emerging entrepreneurs in this competition,” said Daymond John, Shark Tank investor, author and business mogul. “The Miller Lite Tap the Future program is a great learning experience for the contestants where they practice the art of pitching to an investor, networking and putting together a solid business plan. It’s also a great launching pad for the winning businesses, as the grants are given free and clear. Miller Lite takes no equity from the companies, which is a big deal for entrepreneurs. I look forward to seeing the semifinalists on the tour.” For more information visit www.MLTapTheFuture.com.

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO:

http://www.malala.org/

Cast:

Malala Yousafzai, Ziauddin Yousafzai (father), Toorpekai Yousafzai (mother), Khushal and Atal Yousafzai (brothers)

Directed by:

Davis Guggenheim

Screenplay by:

Davis Guggenheim

Produced by:

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald under their long-term production partnership with Image Nation Abu Dhabi and co-financed by Participant Media

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.  The then 15-year-old (she turns 18 this July) was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.

“One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” – Malala

MEET TIONA DEE

Singer/Songwriter/Photographer/Philanthropist

Growing up in Buffalo, NY, singer/songwriter/photographer Tiona D. spent a lot of

time perfecting her soulful, melodic sound while singing in her church choir.

A pivotal moment in her early career happened in 2001 when she preformed for the

swearing-in celebration of Senator Hillary Rodham-Clinton, in Madison Square

Garden Theatre.

It was at that moment she realized that the stage was where she wanted to make a

permanent residence.  “I felt such a rush after singing that night, it really solidified

that singing was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.”

Since moving to Atlanta, Ms. D. has featured in numerous duets and has also

preformed in various R&B showcases around the Atlanta Area.

Over the past year Tiona  has traveled to Los Angeles to work on writing projects for

artists like Jennifer Hudson and Amber Riley, and is working with known producer

Remo the Hitmaker (Dancin’ on me with DJ Webstar) more recently she has been

working on her own material.

By working with producers like Brian Kennedy, (“If This isn’t Love”-Jennifer

Hudson) and writing camp, Rock City (“If This isn’t Love”-Jennifer Hudson and

“When I grow Up”- Pussycat Dolls), Tiona’s project is sure to deliver strong vocals

and a heavy hitting production /songwriting marriage.

She describes her sound as classic and sexy with a nostalgic R&B flow.  “R&B music

is all about feeling, and I want my fans to feel the connection from my life

experiences and their own personal lives.  Most of all I want my sound to be a

timeless creation.”

Most recently, Tiona decided to connect her love for photography and passion for

community development with her creation of Tuff Diamonds

(www.tuffdiamonds.com).  Tuff Diamonds is an organization fashioned to build self-

esteem in young women.  “Tuff Diamonds was created to celebrate the uniqueness

in every woman.  The goal of my organization is to compliment one another instead

of bringing each other down.   By focusing on the positive aspects in ourselves I

believe we can uplift our community one Diamond at a time.”

GA PEACH FASHION WEEK

georgia-peach-fashion-week-june-11-13-300x300

ABOUT THE FOUNDERS & THE EVENT

UFE-TV ACCESS was granted to attend the GPFW! Have you all heard of TWIN OF A KIND? They are totally awesome dot com and there are Desiree and Erin from LA.  Desiree recounted on how their experience in Atlanta’s fashion world was limited in regards to the fashion shows they witnessed. The location of the fashion shows were not what they were used too. They also noticed that for some of these shows, the models were not getting paid for participation.

The caliber and the market is different here. That’s why we want to change the game in regards to fashion and entertainment. We want models to get paid their work for walking at the shows. We want great presentation, but not just great presentation. The caliber of the show that is produced. We want people to say ‘wow Georgia has something’ that we’re offering to the plate, said Desiree,

Nobody wants too or nobody has taken fashion seriously in Atlanta, said Kenyon. When you go to L.A and New York and you mention Atlanta… Atlanta is not known for fashion. They are known for film and television now. We want to change the game and create a platform where fashion is taken seriously in Atlanta.

Desiree and Kenyon consider themselves Atlantians and are holding tight to the fashion baton and leading Atlanta’s fashion  to success. From there, GPFW was birthed. TWIN OF A KIND was birthed by Desiree and her twin sister Erin.

“Twin of a Kind is my passion. We started it back in 2008. It’s a youth empowerment organization and it’s non-profit. It’s all about encouraging and building self esteem as individuals in youth ages. Of course self esteem can be built in all types of forms for all different types of ages. The ages can range from twelve and go all the way to adult years. It’s all about unlocking and unleashing your star potential.”

Twin of a Kind works with a lot of youth that have been traumatized in various ways. The foundation is designed to help booth the self-esteem of those who have or are in traumatic situations. Twin of a Kind conducts workshops on anti-bullying, sex trafficking, knowing yourself, and other things of that nature. They are hands on with their youth so they can feel comfortable to engage. The charity is currently California-based however, there are plans for the foundation to be a expand globally.

 The featured designers were Drip Swimwear, Kimmani Kouture, and The Cotrice Collection.

“MASTER P’S FAMILY EMPIRE” OPENS THE DOORS TO THE MUSIC MOGUL’S FAMILY LIFE 

Master P Juggles His Roles as Businessman and Father to Five Talented Children as He Guides Them Through Life in the Spotlight

Series Premieres Saturday, November 28, 2015 on REELZ

photo cred: ace show biz

(Albuquerque, NM)— REELZ today announced that, for the first time, music mogul Master P is opening the doors to his family home on the network’s original series, Master P’s Family Empire. Master P, whose real name is Percy Miller, is a single father who made it his mission to forge the Miller family empire—but with five kids ranging in age from 9 to 25 it’s not always easy keeping his business interests in order, let alone keeping his kids on track. How will he manage his own projects along with the singing, modeling, acting and sports careers of his children without losing his mind? Master P’s Family Empire will give an inside look at how this single father skillfully juggles his roles as entrepreneur, philanthropist and hip-hop artist with his most important role: being a dad. Master P’s Family Empire is produced by Asylum Ent and premieresSaturday, November 28.

“Master P is a true American success story, rising from the most humble of beginnings to the top of the entertainment world completely on his own,” said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of REELZ. “The Miller family’s infectious chemistry, genuine love for each other and commitment to working hard and following their father’s rules makes them as relatable as they are entertaining.”

A self-made music mogul who grew up in the Calliope projects of New Orleans—once labeled one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the nation—Master P sold more than 75 million records on his way to creating a business empire. After earning his keep through years of hard work he doesn’t intend to simply hand over the keys to the family castle. Master P is a dad on a mission to create generational wealth guided by the personal mantra “I’m your father, not your friend.”  His tough love teachings are always rooted in support and instilling success in his children whether he’s producing a new mix tape, giving his daughter dating advice or attending an important parent teacher conference all while producing new recordings and mentoring a new generation of recording artists including his son Romeo.

This was an all female basketball game, and there was nothing but love in the room. The players were all excited to be apart of history and if you were not there, clearly you missed out!

Lupus is near and dear to Mrs. Bo Talley-Williams heart because she lost her aunt due to complications of Lupus; she also has a cousin who is currently living with this mysteriously unpredictable illness. These loved ones and her knowledge of the illness is the driving force behind Mrs. Bo Talley-Williams determination to bring aid and awareness to Lupus and continue to be a big advocate for Lupus.

What is Lupus?
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that could change any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Chronic means that the signs and symptoms tend to last longer than six weeks often for many years.

In lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system, which is the part of the body that fight off viruses, bacteria, and germs (“foreign invaders,” like the flu). Normally our immune system produces proteins called antibodies that project the body from these invaders. Autoimmune means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your bodies healthy tissues (“auto” means “self”) and creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body.

Lupus is also a disease of flares (the symptoms worsen and you feel ill) and in remissions (The symptoms improve and you feel better).

FAHAMU PECOU IS WINNING
Artist’s recent achievements include a Smithsonian acquisition,
a third Paris exhibition, and “EMPIRE”
Displaying

ATLANTA GA- Visual artist and scholar Fahamu Pecou is having a banner year so far. This past weekend, he wrapped his first major museum exhibit, “Imagining New Worlds,” at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He’s traveling to Florence, Italy this weekend to speak at New York University’s “Black Portraitures” Conference. Two weeks later, he’ll be exhibiting “I Know Why the Caged Bird Blings” at the Backslash Gallery in Paris, France beginning June 11. It’s his third solo exhibition in Paris.

In April, it was announced that the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African-American History and Culture acquired Fahamu’s “But I’m Still Fly,” a painting from his recent “GRAV*I*TY” exhibit, which premiered at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia last November. Additionally, in January, millions of TV viewers caught a glimpse of Fahamu’s work on the mega-hit show “EMPIRE,” which featured “All Dat Glitters Ain’t Goals” in one of the fictional homes.

This momentum of success can be attributed to years of diligent work and examination of black masculinity, hip-hop and pop culture. A Ph.D. candidate in Emory University’s Institute of Liberal Arts doctoral program, Fahamu is committed to bringing art to broader audiences and communities of color. He hosts the talk series “InterSessions,” a live Q&A with hip-hop artists and art industry influencers. The series – which The Economist referenced as a successful effort to reach new audiences with art – has featured rapper T.I., film director Nzingha Stewart, music producer Bryan Michael Cox and the High Museum curator Michael Rooks.

Up next for Fahamu? Curating “Elevate 2015,” a week-long art festival in October sponsored by the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs.

‘LIVIN’ LOZADA’ AND ‘FLEX & SHANICE’ JOIN OWN’S POPULAR
SATURDAY NIGHT LINEUP ON JULY 11

Los Angeles – Summer fun is coming to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network with the series premiere of the new Evelyn Lozada docu-series “Livin’ Lozada” on Saturday, July 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the return of the popular OWN docu-series “Flex & Shanice” at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Livin’ Lozada” follows the lives of Evelyn Lozada, of “Basketball Wives” fame, and her 21-year-old daughter Shaniece.  Evelyn has moved on from the heartache of her highly publicized divorce in a big way. She is engaged to big league baseball player Carl Crawford and the happy couple have a one-year-old son, Leo.  Between learning to be a mom all over again, setting up a new home in Los Angeles for her and her family, working on getting the sequel to her first book published, as well as dealing with issues surrounding her family back East…Evelyn has a lot going on!

Not to be outdone, her daughter Shaniece, has a blossoming modeling career and is working on starting her own bikini line, looking to her mom for advice which she (sometimes) takes.  Each episode is filled with close friends and relatives in the ladies’ lives who help round out a world filled with laughter, support and encouragement as we follow Shaniece carving out the new life before her and Evelyn moving on from her past and embracing the new life she has found.

The series is produced by Shed Media (part of the unscripted/alternative television department at Warner Bros.), with Pam Healey, John Hesling, Lisa Shannon, Russ Heldt and Evelyn Lozada as executive producers.

Flex & Shanice” follows the lives of husband and wife duo, actor Flex Alexander (“One on One”), Grammy-nominated singer Shanice (“I Love Your Smile”) and their extended family all living together under one roof. From the outside looking in, Flex and Shanice are living the dream – they are beautiful celebrities with a long-standing marriage, gorgeous kids and a lovely home in suburbia.  But what this fairytale couple has been hiding from the world is that they have been struggling financially for the past five years, so they moved their hilarious extended family in to help make ends meet.

As the couple often says, “We’re not where we want to be, but we’re not where we used to be,” and viewers will see just that in the second season. But nine people under one roof can add just as much stress as it relieves. And while Flex builds on his acting and stand-up careers with the release of his graphic novel, Shanice hustles to convince a Grammy-nominated producer to EP her new album while raising two precocious kids. This family is just trying to hold it together for long enough to capture that one big break that could turn their luck around.

Flex & Shanice” is produced by Lynch-Dyson Entertainment.  Executive producers are Jeff Dyson, Vernon Lynch, Julie Pizzi and Patty Ivins.

JAY Z LAUNCHES TIDEL: A MUSIC STREAMING MUSIC SERVICE 

Jay Z Music Streaming

Photo: Yani Hesiler

Have you heard about the Tidel Press conference? Who wouldn’t want their music service controlled by musicians rather than self-serving record labels and profit-driven venture capitalists?

This was a genius move. The meeting took place during the Grammy Weekend in LA, and Jay Z gathered everyone in an all day meeting to get this idea in everyone’s head.  Think of all of the exclusive content.  TIDAL co-owners Kanye West, Madonna, Nicki Minaj. Beyonce, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Usher, Daft Punk, deadmau5, J Cole, Jason Aldean, Calvin Harris and Jay Z all delivering music and videos that fans can’t find anywhere else!

While the launch was long on star power, it was short on details; however, what we have learned is that TIDAL has some work to do before its lives up to yesterdays ‘artist’s revolution’ hype.

TIDAL’s “mission is to reestablish the value of music and protect the sustainability of the music industry rooted in creativity and expression,” according to the “declaration” signed yesterday by the 16 stars dubbed “The Avengers of Music.”  Thus far, however, the ‘the music rewrite’ appears to only be for the superstars who took the stage alongside Jay Z.

Each artist-partner has reportedly received a 3% stake in the new music service. How or even if TIDAL might be better than Spotify and other competitors for the tens of thousands of other working musicians who increasingly rely on streaming income, remains unanswered. Stay tuned in…

INTERVIEW WITH TYRESE

UFE-TV ACCESS WAS GRANTED to interview aritst/actor/film producer/author: Tyrese Gibson on his /press/media day, and boy was it an honor.  We learned alot about him, and got to know him on a more personal basis. During the interview, Tyrese mentioned that if he would not have passed the audition that his MUSIC teacher at the time told him about, dealing with his debut to the world when did the commericial singing the Coca-Cola song on the bus, he would not be where is right now. He’s always had a strong passion for music, and that audition has opened up many doors for him. Baby Boy for his first movie, and since then, he has played in starred in several movies, even landing a contract with the fast and furious; part 7 came out 4/2/15.

Black Rose is the title of his last and final studio album. During the interview, Tyrese said he took a bunch of writers, musicians, and producers, and put them all in a house for 34 days, and they cut 146 songs! WOW! That’s similar to how Timberland, Missy, Jodeci, Aaliyah, Playa, and all those cats did back in the day. It’s all a structured formula, and it worked. It’s ok to be a copy cat, as long as you copy the right cat. Black Rose drops July 7, 2015. The first single is called “Dumb Shit” featuring Snoop Dog, and Wiz Khalifa, and it is available on iTunes.

NYLA VAMP’S PHOTOSHOOT

Rapper/Actress Nyla Vamp was born Anna Lankford on July 12 1993 in Venice, CA. With nine siblings growing up, being the middle child allowed her a chance to absorb the maturity of her older siblings yet she still has a youthful attitude that she gained playing with youngsters in the family. Recognizing her need to perform on a major platform, her parents enrolled her in ballet, contemporary modern, tap, jazz and ethnic dance beginning at the young age of 2. In addition to taking professional dance classes at Santa Monica College, she became aware of her talents as a singer in the Holy Name Catholic Church Choir. It was at Culver City High School that she knew that her voice was above average while performing with the Chamber Choir.

While most will identify Nyla Vamp as rapper/singer, becoming a working SAG-AFTRA member has landed her several opportunities to be in front of the camera. As a child she has been featured in commercials for Barbie, Tylenol and Corn Pops Cereal. After relocating to Atlanta, GA in 2013 she was able to add to her acting resume with appearances on BET-“The Game”, BET-“Being Mary Jane” and Bishop TD Jakes Talk Show “Mind, Body and Soul”  and feature film “Lila and Eve”.

Though you can catch Nyla Vamp rocking to oldies but goodies from greats such as Smokie Robinson, Blue Magic or Ted Nugent, her goals are set to gain a lasting fan base in the hip hop community. Her contagious confidence has quickly gained the attention of LA and Atlanta Tastemakers.

DE’LEANTE’S PHOTOSHOOT

Every person has a talent given to him/her at birth and Detroit native Deleanta found his true talent early in life. Firmly believing that entertaining was his gift whenever he is in front of the camera, on the stage or behind a microphone, he instantly felt as if he is there to give nothing less than his best. His primary goal is to mesmerize the audience with his unique sound and style.  Practicing his craft is something that he takes serious, after studying theater and dance at Marygrove College, he was given the opportunity to performed in several plays in 2014.

“This is my time…my time to tell my story through my music, my acting and my modeling abilities.  For the past year, I have been seriously pondering on my readiness to release my own project.” Deleanta feels it is time that he gave all of him to the world. Many people love his sound but the teenagers and the young adult crowd relate to his music. However, as many artists will tell you, while he may go after one particular audience(s), he is am hopeful that his music will be so universal that it will give an instant appeal to many audiences. The ultimate message is: Diamonds R Us!

His aura is somewhat eclectic yet is complimented by any high-end stylist/designer. Some even see Deleanta as intimidating because of his high confidence which for the most part is fairly reserved and can be mistaken for meanness.  Success to him is not necessarily about power or money—they are important; however, success is about having an inner feeling of satisfaction that you are first of all able to use your God-given talent in a way that touches the lives of others in a positive manner.

In 2015 Deleanta will release his debut single, followed by a video release which will be shot in Atlanta, GA. For more info on Deleanta, follow him on Instagram: @Deleanta

Lisa Raye was wonderful in encouraging and guiding the ATL  group of ladies in really asking the hard questions while creating a Vision Board. Some ladies were emotional in a good way feeling accomplished, and everyone wants to get ahead in life, and some of us needs guidance.

PHOTO SHOOT FOR CELEBRITY BARBER: LISA B OF WE TV’S “LA HAIR”

Such an honor to do Lisa B’s PhotoShoot!! Born into the streets of West LA, Lisa always knew she was different. Raised into a household who instilled strong family values and a hard work ethic, Lisa developed a strong personality and quick wit. Dropping out of high school at tender age of 16, she knew that could not determine her worth. Embarking on fast street life and meeting her childhood sweetheart reality hit fast, soon Lisa found herself out in the streets with two children fighting to survive. In between homes, leaving behind an abusive relationship with her children’s father, Lisa embraced her streets skills to make her stronger and successful. Over the years Lisa obtained an entrepreneurial spirit, and was determined to make her own way.

A few setbacks abled her to take charge of her life to become a provider for herself and her children,  she managed to stay grounded, learning quite a bit about herself and her strong instinct developing a street wise sensibility, business savvy and survival skills. Lisa enrolled in Cosmetology school and focused on becoming an entrepreneur. Having a hustle mentality & gaining drive at such a young age turned on light for Lisa, she used her foundation to keep her focused, guarded and positive; these are the tools that continue to shape her approach at life. Soon into her adult years Lisa recognized her passion for barbering and hair care.

Not knowing much about the craft, Lisa self-taught herself barbering skills and soon opened up a few barber salons in the LA area. This added to her determination to learn the business of barbering and to continue to go farther with her skill, when word hit the Hollywood scene of Lisa’s talent she was pulled onto her first Hollywood movie set of BAD BOYS, starring Martin Lawrence & Will Smith, starting as Martin Lawrence personal barber. This job allowed Lisa to get accredited into the Union and from there her career has been a ladder of success.

Not only does Lisa work on some of your favorite Hollywood sets, she also serves as the Head for hair departments on major television and movie productions. Now working on the sets of the hottest shows in Hollywood such as SOUTHLAND, Cedric the Entertainer’s SOUL MAN, & BET’s Hit series Real Hollywood Husband’s Lisa has remained humbled by her troubled beginnings. Blessed with success, from becoming a female Celebrity Barber, expanding from local LA salons to Hollywood & International movie sets, And now the newest star of LA Hair on we tv, Lisa admits that she still has much more to accomplish.  She has always had a fetish for beauty products and has plans to develop a hair product line for men adding her signature touch to men’s grooming worldwide.

Lisa also plans to launch her foundation “Reach Back Foundation” in late 2014.  “My goal is to reach back to as many girls as I can and to inspire them to NEVER give up.” says Lisa.
