EURweb publisher Lee “The Voice” Bailey.

*Lee Bailey was named “The Voice” by listeners of his radio show because of his baritone accent and now he is “the voice” of Black entertainment news via his digital magazine EURweb.

You can hear “The Voice” and meet the living legend Saturday, November 9, 2019 at the 20th annual “Uplifting Minds II” Entertainment Conference.

The “ULMII” conference, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center (1201 S. Figueroa St, 90015) from 1 – 4pm, is free and open to the public. It is where aspiring singers, songwriter, producers, record label executives, dancers, scouting agents and actors meet with experienced professionals to be enlightened and showcased.

The “ULMII” entertainment conference is where actress Naturi Naughten was scouted by a Broadway agent; it was where six-time Grammy winning SisQo first heard the Dru Hill platinum selling single “I Should Be (Your Boyfriend)” by producers/songwriters, the Featherstone brothers; it was where Disney actor RoShon Fegan’s manager said he received information that helped him take Fegan to the next level on Disney, and it was where the Senior VP of Jive Records saw the performance of Grammy winning Miguel, which resulted in a record deal. Held also in Baltimore, the “ULMII” conference is well known by record industry executives and record label producers.

Bailey has been a panelist and media sponsor of the “ULMII” conference since it arrived in Los Angeles offering his wit, expertise and experience to all who inquire. An Air Force veteran, Lee started as a radio jock while serving in the military in 1970 and after his Honorable discharge he was hired by KPOP 102FM in Sacramento and later KUTE 90.1FM in Los Angeles. Through Lee Bailey Productions he worked as a voice-over actor on commercials and corporate slide presentations. He became one of the first black syndicated radio personalities in the country through his companies RadioScope and Bailey Broadcasting Services (BBS) in 1983. His radio show RadioScope grew to include broadcasting weekly on over 100 stations in over 70 countries. Through his companies his news on black entertainment became synonymous with ‘honest’ and in depth black entertainment news. Lee has interviewed entertainment personalities on an iconic and living legend level, so often that most of them have him on speed-dial. Such as icon Michael Jackson who called him to get his help with a rumor he wanted Lee to help stop by putting his side of the story out there. He called Lee because he knew Bailey is about true news – not fake and sensationalized news.

Lee was one of the first online magazines publishers when he decided to launch EURweb.com (Electronic Urban Report) in 1997, a website where he could store and disseminate his news. Today EURweb.com receives over 185,000 visitors a week and has over 200,000 subscribers of its weekly EURweb E-blasted Newsletter. Through Radioscope his news was placed on the Mass Transit buses and trains in Los Angeles, Chicago, Orlando, Milwaukee and Atlanta that have the TransiTV and via mobile device apps.

Joining Lee Bailey, so far, on the “ULMII” panel on Saturday, November 9, 2019 are Hollywood entertainment attorney Richard B. Jefferson (METAL Law Group), television personality Melody Trice of “The Melody Trice Show” (Comcast) and public relations specialist Edna Sims (ESP Public Relations).

The Virtual United Negro College Fund Tour Heads to NY, DC & NJ on Fri & Sat-Nov. 20 & 21 (EUR EXCLUSIVE!)

*African American students interested in going to college can attend the United Negro College Fund’s (UNCF) Fall 2020 virtual Empower Me Tour. Set for this Friday and Saturday (November 20 & 21, 2020), New York, District of Columbia, and New Jersey will be repped. (This year’s tour kicked off earlier this month in Wisconsin and Illinois). To register, go here.

The Empower Me Tour is an extension of the goals of the UNCF. Founded in 1944, the UNCF, a non-profit, has raised more than $5 billion and helped more than 500,000 students attend 37 private historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

The EUR caught up with Stacey Lee, the tour’s director for four years, who discussed the importance of the event.

“The UNCF is the nation’s largest provider of education support to minority students,” said Lee. “The Empowerment Tour has been executed for the past 12 years and last year along we offered over $12 million dollars in scholarships.”

Lee continued, “I think the great thing is that during these times, even with COVID-19, is that a number of corporations (Wells Fargo/P&/FedEx/Disney/Goldman Sachs) and donors have really been providing opportunity and financial access to our schools and students.”

The tour is packed with information and resources so that students and parents have the right tools to make informed decisions.

“It’s a free event that provides educational support, scholarships, interviews with colleges, empowerment, and information on how to get to and through college. We also provide this information for parents as well. We have a parent section that focuses on financial aid and the things you need to get your students to college.”

Lee continued, “Sometimes we have students that don’t realize that they can attend college. They can receive scholarships. Some of them don’t even know what an HBCU is. So, it’s inspirational for me to see these students receive this information and the excitement that’s around this tour.”

In addition to college information, panel sessions on issues affecting the community will also take place. Legendary rapper Bun B will be part of a special My Black Is Beautiful panel. The panel will have discussions with girls and boys and the MC will lead the male portion.

“It’s about empowerment,” Bun B told the EUR. “It’s vital for us to lift each other up and amplify each other’s voices. We just talk about now what that role is in this COVID world. And with everything that we are seeing with young Black men on television, we want to keep them motivated and centered. We want to make sure that they are not discouraged in this moment.”

Ever since Kamala Harris threw her hat into the presidential race and elected vice president of the United States, a spotlight has shined on the fact that she’s an HBCU grad (Howard University) and member of the African American sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha. These facts are not lost on the UNCF.

“Kamala has really boosted people’s awareness about HBCUs and (African American sororities) and the type of people that come out of HBCUs. HBCUS have also provided so many people from science, mathematics, and engineering programs (STEM).”

Bun B added, “We have more than enough examples to show you how beneficial an education from an HBCU can be. So, there is no reason to not be a part of an HBCU because the world is just as available to you as it is for anyone else attending any other type of university.”

Register for the virtual Empower Me Tour on November 20 & 21, 2020 here. Spring tour dates will be announced soon. For general information on the United Negro College Fund, go here.
