Today The Dream Big / Hustle Hard Firm (DBHH) will kick off its highly anticipated Dream Big Artist Showcase in Miami. The tour is an opportunity for aspiring artists to gain national exposure and chances to win valuable resources within the music industry. The Dream Big Artist Showcase will take place in 11 cities: Miami, Orlando, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, and Los Angeles. One semi-finalist from each local showcase will receive marketing, pr and branding services from DBHH and Beautiful People Miami and will automatically have a chance to compete for the grand prize: a production deal with multi-platinum Grammy award-winning producers, songwriter, and singer Mario Winans with an opportunity to get signed to a major recording contract thru Interscope, Atlantic , Bad Boy or Def Jam Records.

Mario Winans spoke exclusively on being involved with the competition, ‘As a producer I’ve made hit records for some of today’s top artists, now I’m looking to sign, develop and launch a star. I’m embarking on a nation-wide talent search to look for the hottest talent in america, so I encourage all artists of all genres to come out, this is an opportunity of a lifetime!’

What started out as a local showcase in Miami is expected to be a successful national tour. Over a five-month period, DBHH will audition hundreds of aspiring artists who dream of making it big in the music industry. The tour will begin on Saturday, March 13, 2010 in Miami and will end in Miami with a finale showcase in which semi-finalists will compete for a production deal and a recording contract.

“This is the perfect opportunity for an artist who wants to get discovered,” explains ,Mario Winans; “These artists will have a chance to meet industry professionals who will bring them one step closer to reaching their goals and making their dream come true.”

While artists will gain the exposure they seek, sponsoring companies will have the opportunity to have their message heard by a highly sought-after target market, young men and women between the ages of 18 and 30. Sponsors will receive ample brand exposure and recognition in an non-intrusive environment while marketing directly to their target audience.
