Hollywood Confidential

Hollywood Confidential

The 3rd installment of Hollywood Confidential kicked off during Stellar Awards weekend at Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas. Presented by Brand Maverick Entertainment president Steven Jones in association with Walgreens and eOne, the event featured industry vets Michelle Williams, Erica Campbell, Tye Tribbett, Holly Carter (manager/producer) and Phil Thronton (eOne executive and TV/film producer).

The event was designed to educate aspiring industry professionals and artists on how to expand their brand in ministry, music, tv or film. Last year’s panelists were from Meagan Good, Brandy and Tichina Arnold.

The room was pack with the next wave of top young industry changers. I learned a lot and it was great to connect with like-minded go-getters!

Check out a few pics and video below.

Holly Carter

“If you’re serious about getting into the business as a personality, artist or whatever, you have to A) Know your purpose, B) Be convicted of something, and C) Know that the Lord called you here. When it gets tough, you’re gonna need to lean on all 3 of these. You also need to have a plan and a team to help you work that plan. That’s VERY important. And on top of all of that, you need to have TALENT! Talent, a vision and team will get you there!” – Dr. Holly Carter

Tye Tribbett

“Make sure you’re serving in your LOCAL church if you expect to be a GLOBAL success! Also…artists like Michelle and Mali Music are CALLED to be messengers in the ‘mainstream’ world. Just because you see them in places you may think is non-Christian, doesn’t mean they’re not called. SOMEONE has to go to Moab and be the messenger to tell them about Jesus!” – Tye Tribbett

Kim Ford and Dr. Holly CarterDr. Holly Carter shared her insight on the executive side. She manages Michelle Williams, Deitrick Haddon, Mali Music, Keirra Sheard, produces the Preachers of LA/Detroit/Atlanta, Fix My Choir, and takes care of her children AND husband! She dropped tons of jewels about having longevity in the industry, the importance of having a team who understands your conviction, doing whatever it takes to make career and family work and more. Ladies…it can be done!
