Last night was truly “Ladies Night” at the ASCAP’s 6th Annual “Women Behind The Music”. The affair was held at Atlanta’s swanky Village Restaurant on 30 North Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30308. The layout within itself was breathtaking and sophisticated.
The evening was sponsored by #MyxFusions the very same signature drink that is endorsed by hip hop mogul Nicki Minaj. Delicious appetizers were served to all attendees consisting of lobster rolls, shrimp, veggie patties, and jerk chicken. Needless to say the evening was off to an amazing start.
KeKe Wyatt Glows Showing Her Growing Baby Bump
Hosted by no other then ASCAP Urban the organization took the time to honor industry female legends Deb Anteny, Keke Wyatt, and Omara S. Harris, Esq.
Each woman acknowledged their contributions to the music industry and shared their wisdom to the attendees without holding anything back. Shedding light on their dislikes and likes, trials, successes, and overall journey to what made them.
Deb stated boldly, “Legs closed. Pocketbooks open. Oh and leave the knee pads at home.”
Although the statement took a few of us by surprise she was extremely serious on how the music industry attempts to use and defame women. The battle of having to constantly prove herself to her male counterparts has been her on going struggle.
Keke Wyatt contributed to saying, “You don’t need to use your Susie May.” Her addition made the crowd chuckle and snicker, but her seriousness wasn’t forgotten.
Omara Harris is the brains behind major deals and agreed with the other women. She mentioned the importance of using her legacy as her motivation. Keeping in mind that her reputation is everything to her. It speaks of what kind of person she is and how she maneuvers with her clients.
Lastly, they all mentioned their passion and need for sisterhood in life. As many can attest to the lack of unity amongst women they all spoke of how joining forces makes a major impact in a male dominated industry.
Keke Wyatt revealed that she’s not returning to R&B Divas Atlanta. She stated that she’ll be spearheading her very own reality show.
Harris spilled that she’s expecting a baby girl in April 2015
Deb is coming out with a show to find the next big act!
