Shine On 2 Hollywood: A Music Showcase;”Artists Meet The Industry” Benefiting Hope 4 Children was held on July 15, 2010 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at the Celebrity Center in Hollywood, CA.

“Arnold G is extremely passionate about his business and, seems quite sincere in helping seasoned talent reach new heights in their careers! The powerful cast of music and film industry professionals assembled for SHINE ON 2 will certainly help set the stage for some powerful breakthrough moments!” said Pixie Monroe, Casting Director Film and Television.

The guests started to arrive 2 hours before the show and lined up to check in and get escorted to the seating area. Media/press and photographers arrived at the same time, they signed in, got their media badges, and were escorted to their assigned areas to start taking photos of the VIP’s, artists, panelists and event production team.

“I have tremendous respect for Shine On Host, Gary Spears: As a host, performer, radio personality and long-time friend. Gary’s been a dedicated friend and has served as the co-host on one of my passion projects, a radio podcast entitled; “Casting Hope” for the past several years. He’s also been cast in numerous film and television projects since leaving mainstream radio and definitely always displays a high level of energy, humor and professionalism in his works”. Ms. Monroe concluded.
Arnold G’s dancers opened the show, then host Gary Spears welcomed everyone to the event before he introduced the panelists. He showed Arnold G’s Shine On 2 message video, then he introduced the industry panelists Alex Cortez (AYRE Entertainment, Warner Brothers), Kevin McDowell (AEG & AEG Live), Allan Rich (Academy awardee, Grammy/Golden Globe nominee, music writer), Tony Sweet (radio personality at On Air With Tony Sweet, LA Talk Radio), Michael Kelly (record producer, Universal Music), Javelyn Jav (music producer, X-It Rite Records), Robby Martinez (musician, conductor, composer and performer), Asha Puthli (legendary Jazz & Soul singer & former recording artist for record labels EMI, CBS, Sony and RCA) and Arnold G (Recording artist, founder of Shine On, Bring It On, A&G Records & A&G Entertainment Productions). “I loved the event. It was two times better than Shine On 1 and if you always have an event like that one, it will be one of the best showcases ever. I was never bored. All the acts were great.” said Buddy Sampson, Publisher, The Scoop LA Newspaper.  He continue “Gary Spears was excellent! He added a professional dimension to the show, like Dick Clark. Bring him back. Shine On 2 It was awesome.” The first artists introduced by host Gary Spears to Shine On in front of the panelists were Kasey Iaeger who sang (Givin’ Up On You and Can’t Give Into This), and then Zedakiah Koterba who sang (Eye Of The Tiger and You’ve Get A Friend). Brooke Williams sang (I’m Back and Turns My Mind), American boy Justin Chase performed and sang (Fireplace, Finally and Don’t Give Up), and Sail by the Stars who came from Florida sang (I Wish I May, Icebergs Are For Penguins and If My Room Were a Rocketship). “I had an amazing time hosting Shine On 2. It was my first time hosting since leaving radio 3 years ago, so I had to wear diapers! LOL=laugh out loud. Seriously, this is a wonderful grass roots event that has legs so look for more in the future!” said Radio Personality, host & actor.  He added “If given the opportunity, I would host a garage sale but yes to Shine On 3! And Bring It On!” An intermission of 10 minutes was held and then Shine On 2 host Gary Spears welcomed everyone back and introduced the only Asian American to perform, Michael Walker, who sang (Cooler Than Me and We Can Do It). American Dreamz The Movie actress and singer Jael Gadsden took the stage and she sang (Drink the Water and All I need). Jarid Williams performed and sang the song requested by his fans(Can We Talk, Birthday song for the mother of one of his fans, and For All We Know); Latonius Earl returned by popular demand and he sang (Mya Song and So High); George Hodos sang (This is Love and Just A Man), and the last artist who blew the stage with her choreography and dancers was KingQueen who sang (U Make Me (LOL) and Man’s World. After each artist performed, host Gary Spears asked them some questions about their music. macys.com 07/25/2010 “I Loved the stage, loved the lightning. Everything went smooth and fast. Everyone that I met that worked on “the set” was very professional and knew what every ones name was, which means they took their time to know who is playing their venue. Also liked the fact that there was constant communication going on almost every day before the actual gig which took away a lot of stress.” said KingQueen, artist. She added “I liked every venue I have performed at. People have always been very humble to me so I don’t have a favorite place because I love every venue I play since it’s my life, it’s what I love. But my two favorites were Avalon and the one at the Celebrity Centre with Shine On 2, mostly because of the size of the stage and the sound system!” She continue “Absolutely, I saw artists I would have never seen before if it wasn’t for Shine On 2, which made me realize I have to step up even more because there is some great talent out there. And in the end of the day, watching other artists as a artist is to enjoy, watch, learn and go to improve yourself.” “The losers get fed to the crocodiles! I like to think of a host as one who is more background that forefront….remember it’s all about the talent! I’d like to see the one who gets the best score be given his/her/their concert at a local venue with industry types invited. These kids work their butts off and deserve to be heard!” concluded Mr. Spears. Per A&G Entertainment Productions, the event was sold out and there were more than 400 guests that came to support their favorite artist. Gary Spears introduced The Dance Diva that closed the show and this was Cynthia Manley. With her electric energy she performed her new single “Give” and she brought on stage all the artists including event executive producer Arnold G and non profit organization Hope 4 Children beneficiary Grace Walker. Host Gary Spears again thanked the panelists and mentioned that the Shine On 2 score sheet will be available in one week. He went ahead and thanked event supporters, Gabriel Escamilla (fashion designer) & Parris Harris (stage manager and fashion coordinator). He also thanked the venue Celebrity Center and Hope 4 Children founder Grace Walker. “It’s worthy showcase because you as a artist want to (should want to) perform everywhere from a small bar to a huge charity event.. If this is what you love then of course it’s worth there. A showcase reaches out to people that normally wouldn’t go to a club to see you perform because it’s too late, or not their thing. It’s a great way to expand your fan base.” Concluded KingQueen. Some of the talent and VIPs that attended the event were Vairon Perez, Janet Luna, Coreen Troche, Beatriz Vasquez, Ryan Ray, Alex Varden, David Harrison Levi, Dr. John Carvalho, Emily Morrow, Salvador Corona, Patrice Ryan, Monet Lu, Tom Emberson, Maria Amor, Nikki Gill, Pixie Monroe, Robin Sargent, Sonny Madera, Irene Soderberg, Dan Norris, Marco Tricca, Yari Paris, Tina Nguyen, Joseph Quinto and Stella Gomez. “I love performing I’m very comfortable doing it! I had an absolute great time performing amongst so many talented artists.” said Latonius J. Earl, Artists.  He continue “The quality of performers definitely changed for the better. Everyone was on top of their game. As far as doing anything different, Nothing, except changed my outfit. I just ask God for direction and I go with the flow.” Napster, LLC About Shine On: This is a unique grassroots music showcase, that is not your typical venue. It is specifically designed for the unsigned indie artist, band and musician with two stages where the best local unsigned indie artists are able to showcase their talents in the Hip Hop, R&B, Urban, Rock and Dance categories, in front of conference attendees and a panel of music industry experts to gain maximum exposure at a minimal cost.

I went in with the mindset that things will be different after this and surely when it was all over I noticed that Latonius as a person/ entertainer was different. I’ll never be the same.

Hand in Hand Benefit Concert – Typhoon Emergency To Help The Philippines

October 15, 2009 by  
Filed under News

PasHollywood, CA — October 14, 2009 A&G Records in association with Philippine Aid Society announced Multi-talented recording artists Latonius Earl, Jezda, Kris Searle, Jael Gadsden, Fawn, Asha Puthli, Stuart Guest, Rob E C and Arnold G to perform live at “Hand in Hand Benefit Concert – Typhoon Emergency.”

“To be honest, I can’t take credit for the idea. This was Arnold G’s initiative. When he approached me about doing the concert, I was all for it because I could tell he had a heart to help the Philippines” Said Tim Troutman, Executive Director of the Philippine Aid Society.
The event will be held on Monday, October 19, 2009 from 9pm to 11pm at Rage Restaurant & Bar 8911 Santa Monica Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069. Telephone: (310) 652-7055.
He continue “I hope it will raise awareness for the Philippines and the serious need they have there. I also hope to raise some money because every dollar raised translates directly into emergency items for the victims.”
Event will be hosted by Rana Davis, popular long time hostess and emcee in Southern California.
This is a benefit concert to help raise awareness and needed funds to help the victims of the devastating floods the occurred on September 26, 2009. The Manila metro area was pummeled by Typhoon Ketsana (Ondoy) which resulted in the worst flooding the Philippines has seen in over 40 years. Some are calling the storm the “Katrina of the Philippines.” Nearly 699 people have lost their lives and countless thousands have lost everything they own. To be sure, millions of Filipinos, living in one of the poorest countries in the world, were deeply affected by this tragedy in the Phillipines.
