The Daily Grind Video

On June 1, I launched my new contest The Superstar Soul Music Search on People from all over the country have been uploading their audition videos.  I’ve seen and heard some great artists and songwriters so far.  People who think they got what it takes to be selected have till June 23rd to enter the contest. I’ve put a list of some of my favorite songs for people to pick to sing and upload for their audition tapes as well. I’ve selected six cities that I’m looking for that next superstar.  They are Charlotte, Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Philly and DC. 


In July, myself and two celebrity judges are going out to these cities to crown one winner from each market AND host my highly anticipated Black and White Ball.  The winners will join me in Atlanta, GA for the grand finale of The Superstar Soul Music Search on July 31th.  The grand prize winner will receive ten thousand dollars and a record deal with my company, Harrell Entertainment/Atlantic Records.  I’m also giving five thousand dollars and a co-publishing deal to the songwriter with the best original song.


My website has a lot of information for the contest and also gives you some insight on me, my career, favorite moments at Uptown Records and working with artists like Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Heavy D., Robin Thicke, Puffy, Guy and Al B. Sure. I also put together a classic mixtape you need to have in your collection called “Champagne and Bubbles” that I teamed up with the world famous DJ Cassidy that’s available for download on

The summer is going to be exciting for me and my staff as we journey cross-country to find my debut artist on Harrell Entertainment/Atlantic Records. I hope everyone in Atlanta, Detroit, Charlotte, DC, Houston and Charlotte are getting ready for the Black and White Ball because it’s going to be fabulous. Be sure to go to my website to be a part of The Superstar Soul Music Search and keep updated on what’s going on!
