The music industry’s biggest movers and shakers came out in full force on Wednesday night (June 16th) for Kelly Rowland‘s album listening session at New York’s Hudson Hall.
Hosted Universal Motown, the event was MC’ed by Oprah’s BFF Gayle King, and was attended by the likes of BET president Stephen Hill, Star Jones, Motown’s label head Syliva Rhone ( below in peach dress), Rico Love, and many other key figures in the radio, TV, and press spectrum’s.
Randomness: It’s worth noting such high-profile gatherings are only reserved for projects a label are treating as a top priority. With Kelly having this kind of backing on her side this time round (take from that what you will), it’s increasingly looking like she can blow up on the solo tip.
For, such key figures coming together for Kelly shouldn’t be looked at in a minor light; afterall it is these radio programmers, television networks and what have you, who essentially control (for the lack of a better word) what and who is ‘hot’ and who and what are ‘not’. Considering this, there’s no doubt support from such entities is arguably the most important factor to Kelly breaking the industry (especially the US). Here’s hoping she does just that…she deserves it!
