    Andre was the man Diddy, Mary J Blige and many other artist from the 80’s, 90’s, and now owe the start of their career to this man!

    Andre Harrell was an innovator, and visionary who had the eye, and ear for greatness. May he Rest In Heavenly Peace!!! My condolences, and prayers go to all those who are affected by his tragic loss.

    So sad! 😒 Apart from Clarence Avant, Andre Harrell was really that guy to bless, help and motivate every talented person he came into contact with, black and white! He knew how to bring the best out of people, regardless if he was working directly with them or not…He loved black culture for REAL, and never wanted us to be accepted by being watered down! He wanted us to be the best versions of ourselves but be REAL at the same time! He wanted us to have the best in life! πŸ₯‚ Listening to the music from his record label has been so comforting….knowing that it was loved, cared for, finessed, packaged and marketed by this great man! The music sounds special cause it is special! It’s magical πŸ₯° Forget the charts, this is black artistic expression and excellence! Thank GOD he was working on the Uptown Records mini-series for BET and it will still see the light of day…thank GOD he left a legacy and a blueprint that will never be forgotten…prayers to his family and friends! πŸ™πŸ½ ❀️
