One evening I was invited to a show by an artist, Angelina Sherie, here in Atlanta. I had never heard of the showcase where she was performing, but I was very excited to see her show. I walked into the venue and it was a packed house. The branding was on point and it seemed everyone was having a great time. Surprisingly, the rapper Future walked in and at that point, I had to find out who was responsible for this event. Shortly after spotting Future, I was introduced to Drew Sanders, the curator of the RnB Untapped showcase. My mind was set that we would eventually work together and a year later RnB Untapped is the first R&B showcase at the A3C Festival here in Atlanta, REBEL is a sponsor, and two of my artist clients are featured on the inaugural line up.
I recently sat down with Drew over lunch at Chipotle to get more insight into his humble beginnings, how he started RnB Untapped and what his goals and missions are for the platform in the community. His story was very inspiring to me, and I hope it inspires you as well.
