*Local Baltimore talent to take the stage at the 21st annual “Uplifting Minds II” Entertainment Conference Saturday, April 18, 2020 at Security Square Mall (6901 Security Blvd, 21244) from 1-3pm hosted by Magic 95.9 FM’s Ms D. (Doresa Harvey) and DJ Rick (GSE). The “ULMII” conference offers a panel of entertainment industry professionals, a talent showcase of experienced artists and a national talent competition where singers, songwriters, dancers and actors have the opportunity to win over $15,000 valued in prizes.
Known for inspiring and providing opportunities for advancement, the “Uplifting Minds II” Entertainment Conference is held in partnership with The Baltimore Times and Security Square Mall. Talented artists such as multi-award winning Virgin Island Hip-Hop performer V.I.P. (who also serves on the panel) and local singer Jhane B. will take the “showcase” stage. Panelists include the CEO of a local law firm, a successful artist manager, a label owner, an award-winning actor and filmmaker, a seasoned youth development executive, the director of a local performance institute and center and a seasoned performer and A&R executive.
Held annually in Baltimore and Los Angeles, the free entertainment conference has an impressive success record from the artists that have showcased their talents there. Parent/manager of a Los Angeles competitor, Miguel, said he was signed by one of the “ULMII” panelists and as a result, today Miguel is a Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter. Parent/manager of Naturi Naughton said her performance at the Baltimore “ULMII” event resulted in a run on Broadway because a scout was at the event. From Broadway she joined the R&B group 3LW and from there landed a starring role on the STARZ series “Power”. In Baltimore competitors the Featherstone Brothers said in an interview with the City Paper that it was their performance at “ULMII” that resulted in their success. Their original song appeared on the third Dru Hill album as “I Should Be (Your Boyfriend)” because SisQo was there to support “ULMII” panelist Jazz (Dru Hill) and heard the song. The song was released as a single with accompanying music video and it is currently a platinum-selling song. Parent/manager of Los Angeles competitor RoShon Fegan said that what he learned from the “ULMII” founder Eunice Moseley (www.ThePulseofEntertainment.como), who was serving on the professional panel, helped him take his son to “the next level.” That next level was a co-starring role on Disney’s “Shake It Up”, then a starring role on Disney’s “Camp Rock”, which led to him starring on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
