While R&B has been intertwined into popular music seamlessly in recent years, the women who pioneered the genre haven’t received the same recognition as the pop stars who were inspired by them. Artists like Brandy (aka the vocal bible) and Lauryn Hill (the first black woman to win Best New Artist at the 1999 Grammys) have had their share of fame, b…
 
When young female artists develop into budding pop stars, they’re thrust into more than just the limelight – they’re faced with the responsibility of being a role model whether or not they wanted it. In 1999, Britney Spears stepped onto the world stage, walking the line of a polished, youthful pop star on the verge of womanhood. Britney as a brand …
 
Undoubtedly Free Britney was one of the biggest moments of 2021, creating an uproar of public outrage and opening the conversation for how we treat female pop stars.

To this day clickbait headlines about celebrities ravage the internet and tabloid newspapers line grocery store checkouts and newsstands.

It’s just these little things in which you set up cause and effect statements for yourself.” Do you l…

One of those powerhouse women behind many of today’s hits like BTS’ “Butter” and Benee’s “Supal…
 
In 1996, the Spice Girls took the world by storm, becoming the highest-selling girl group in history, and sharing their message of girl power so loud that it inspired the 4th wave of feminism – or at least we like to think so. The rise of the Spice Girls came at a time when the 24-hour news cycle had just begun, meaning that the group are seared in…
 
"You don’t have to have the career you thought you were gonna have when you were 18. You don’t have to have the career where you perform at La Scala by 28 and if you don’t then it’s a failure.

What if we told you that early 1960s girl groups were punk before punk music existed? We’re taking a look back in history to connect the seemingly unlikely dots between these two.

“It’s such a powerful relationship [between a voice coach, acting coach, or business coach and you.] They can really help you feel so much more prepared.

“These types of programs can be very powerful for that kind of learning, growing, challenge, and change. YAPs help you focus on your craft, technique, acting, being on stage in general, business of music, language study, diction - so many things. It’s an incubator of that experience.
