I attended a wonderful networking party by Lisa Gold’s Act Outside the Box on Tuesday, December 10 at Gossip in NYC and will be writing about that event soon. While there I met Todd Wharton, CEO and Founder of Local Talent Connect, who told me about "IV: The Artist" happening tonight, December 11 and so I wanted to get that information up right away. Local Talent Connect is joining forces with CEO Omar Ortiz of Tranquil Water NY Inc., a branding and production agency, to showcase this event.
Todd explained that “IV: The Artist” is “a red carpet Christmas event to give all artists the opportunity to have their own red carpet to celebrate them for one night."
Todd went on to explain that there is going to be celebrity performances as well as unknowns performing.
It’s taking place at Stage 48 – on 48th between 11th and 12th (stage48.com). Tickets will be available at the door.
I did some searching on the internet and found out that there will be two star studded red carpets and live performances.
The event will feature radio’s Steph Lova & FUSE TV Producer June Archer as hosts, with performances by Grammy Nominated R&B Artist Mario Winans, Grammy Nominated Reggae Artist Rayvon, Multi-Platinum R&B group Allure, son of Big Pun Chris Rivers, jazz great Shareef Clayton with hip hop pioneer DJ Hollywood, Brand Nubian’s DJ Alamo, and DJ Marvilous on the 1s and 2s.
There will be additional performances by up and coming superstars 2Cann, Melissa B., Natalia Segura, Soliris, Jerra Blues Band, Kola, Mia LJ, Rory, dance troupe The MTA Mass Transit Artists, and fashion show by Toriola Inc. Red Carpet hosted by AmeliaisMore and On Deck With Lucy. Co-hosts include Christine Vega and Spencer Humphrey.
