Sebastian Mikael

With just a handful of years experience as a musician, Sebastian Mikael is already skilled at meshing elements of rock, R&B, pop into one cohesive package, held together by his unique acoustic guitar playing.  “Last Night” feat. Wale is Sebastian’s 1st single off of his hotly anticipated forthcoming full-length debut album “Speechless”; due out early June 2014 in a joint venture between Slip-N-Slide Records and Caroline/Capitol Records.

Yolanda “Yo Yo” Whitaker

Yo Yo is a Grammy-nominated legendary female hip hop artist, actress, and philanthropist.  Yo Yo exploded on the scene over 20 years ago under the keen eye of hip hop icon, Ice Cube.  Her debut album, “Make Way for the Motherlode,” released in 1992, set an unbreakable tone that set ripples throughout the industry.  Her one of a kind voice and unapologetic lyrics were undeniably irreplaceable.

In 2008, Yo Yo was the beautiful female hip hop emcee host, alongside renowned emcee, MC Search, of Ego Trip’s reality series “Miss Rap Supreme” on VH1.  Her brassy voice became a vital component to 93.5 KDAY in Los Angeles for 5 years as a morning show radio personality.


Mali Music

Mali Music reveres and respects the power of his chosen art form. The singer, songwriter, and producer recognized music’s impact at a very young age, treasuring it as a gift. At only eleven-years-old and without any formal training, he would get behind the keyboard at a local Savannah, GA church and play for hours in front of a packed house every single Sunday.

Delivering a seismic performance at the BET Music Awards on the “Music Matters” stage, Mali effectively got the entire industry talking. He finally found the right home in 2013, signing to Mark Pitts’ ByStorm Entertainment label at RCA Records, the home of Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Miguel. After another earthshaking BET Music Awards performance and his Essence Music Festival debut that year, the mainstream wholeheartedly embraced Mali’s undeniable and uplifting blend of soulful R&B, invigorating hip-hop, and inspiring lyricism.


Noel Gourdin

Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, R&B artist Noel Gourdin is most known for his hit “The River.”  He recently released an album this year called City Heart, Southern Soul with classic songs like “Foxxxy” and “Heaven Knows.”


George Tandy Jr.

Born and raised in Virginia, George Tandy, Jr. moved to Florida to pursue a career in singing, songwriting, playing the keyboard, and hip-hop dancing.  Signing with RedStar Entertainment, he released his debut single “March” last year to rave fandom.  His father is George Tandy, Sr., who is a famous jazz musician.


This talented group of girls performed at our Carolina Sing-Off and were AMAZING!  We had to bring them back to perform at FSO where they’ll do back flips and sing their hit songs including “Get It Together” and “Something!”


Shirley Strawberry

Co-host of “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” heard locally on V 101.9, Shirley Strawberry delivers the laughs each and every morning.  She gives great advice during her ‘Strawberry Letter’ segment, and she has written a book called ‘The Strawberry Letter.”
