"So You Want To Be A Rapper?" Set The Tone For What’s To Come From Medium PR Agency
Medium PR Agency is the brainchild of Quinelle Holder (CEO) and wife Sabrina Holder (CCO) who have created a business together, somewhat seamlessly with their career paths both already aligning. The idea was to bring a public relations and marketing firm to the DMV that would provide services to artists looking to make a career in the music industry.
This past year, the couple decided to purchase an office space in Arlington, VA to make good on their mission and hit the ground running. After hiring staff towards the end of 2017, work began on a unique music conference called “So You Want To Be A Rapper,” in efforts to educate artists, putting industry insiders in front of them to offer real guidance during live panels, workshops and one on one sessions.
On Saturday, March 24th, panelists came from all walks of life like public relations, social media, management, music production, and marketing came to speak at the "So You Want To Be A Rapper" conference. Legal advice was given by entertainment lawyer Bob Celestin, Kind Snacks sponsored our Hip-Hop and Health panel and Playcloths provided shirts, towels and shopping bags for attendees.
The entire day was filled with education, networking, true insight, and provided an experience that kept the hallway and rooms of the R.I.S.E Development Center packed well after the event was over. We wanted people to come in and learn, feel empowered and walk away with the confidence that they can make it if they put their efforts in the right places.
This is the first of many events Medium PR plans to put together in the "So You Want To Be" series, which will come in different variations and in select cities moving forward. Special thanks to all of our panelists, staff and all those who were in attendance.
Stay tuned for more updates and a recap visual of the event soon.
