INFLUENCERS: How Trends & Creativity Become Contagious

While browsing the web, I came across a very interesting film that was created sometime last year. The film is titled "INFLUENCERS" and its basically a breakdown of where I want to go with my career. This is one of the most influential pieces of video that I've viewed in a long time, I am inspired!

INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment.

The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.

Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today's pop culture.

Artist Spotlight: DeJuan Turrentine

 Meet DEJUAN TURRENTINE AKA “MR. POP FUNK”



There are some artists that we are naturally drawn to. No matter the topic of the song we find
ourselves bobbing our heads and singing the lyrics as if we wrote them ourselves. DeJuan Turrentine is
one of those artists and one who is soon to have the hearts of young and older fans alike. A California
native and the nephew of the great jazz saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, the 24 year old, soon to be
sensation has been around music his entire life. From the earliest memories of Jazz and R & B to later
bumping' sounds of Hip-Hop with his brother's group "Quo" who were once signed to Michael Jackson's
label MJJ; he has grown up learning the trade, watching and waiting for his turn to show the world what
he can do. Relishing in the music industry since day one DeJuan is ready for stardom and groomed for
success.

Reflecting on his past experiences in the music industry DeJuan knows that he is blessed to have
made it this far. “I’ve been through the blood, sweat and tears of this industry and still I stand,” DeJuan
reflects. Having three record deals fall through, he has been inches away from the success that is without
a doubt calling his name.

DeJuan has been influenced by artists spanning R&B, Pop and country music including: Patti

Labelle, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Garth Brooks and Whitney Houston.
While he has yet to be seen on the music scene, he has certainly been a behind the scenes writing for top
icons Usher and Whitney Houston to name a few. The songs written by DeJuan, show he is multi
talented, possesses a smooth vocal style matched with dynamic range. With his stunning good looks,
hypnotic voice, electrifying dance style and his off-the-hook charisma, this star is ready to shine.

Writing is not the only talent he possesses, a classically trained pianist DeJuan is a true musician.

Aside from the music, the lyrics, and the eagerness of DeJuan, it is his winning attitude that makes all
the difference in how fans will grow to love him. In today's society it is safe to say that many people enter
the game for the wrong reasons. DeJuan's reasons are simple "I love music; it’s a part of who I am."

Check out DeJuan's first official music video "Bad Habit" below and also download his latest mixtape on iTunes titled "Pop Funk Mixtape Vol. 1"



Here's an amazing song cover of Adele's "He Won't Go" performed by DeJuan Turrentine
