Friday, July 31, 12:30pm (National Anthem): David Correy –
David Correy doesn't want his fans to shuffle. "If you take someone's iPod, they might have everything from Pink to M*Picture* aroon 5 to Rihanna, to Justin Timberlake to Kanye West to Carrie Underwood," says David. "I want to embody all those artists in one." Armed with a powerful voice and a passion that knows no borders, this soul singer is poised to become just that - a 21st century global pop-star.
Born in Brazil, David came to America in his infancy after immense poverty forced his birth mother to put him up for adoption. David's adoptive parents raised him in Annapolis, Maryland, where his passion for music would quickly earn him starring roles in numerous high school musicals.
David Correy is ready to take over pop-charts around the globe. "I'm an international artist because of where I'm from and what I came from," says David. "I want to inspire people to never give up and know that their day is coming. You just have to keep on fighting."
Friday, July 31, 8am – 12pm: Harvey Rhames aka DJ Harvey Dent –
After the passing of his maternal grandmother when he was a child, DJ Harvey Dent retrieved a clock radio from the boxes of belongings that had to be moved. From that point on, his love of music grew as he listened to various radio stations in the Baltimore/DC area. Harvey started to collect music on his own though living in a mostly music-less home. His love of music was unlike his parents, especially his mother who described his purchases of music as a "waste." This did not discourage him, as he went on to use his love and collection of music into the focus of becoming a DJ. To date DJ Harvey Dent has performed at many venues in the Baltimore/DC area and has opened for many artists such as The Pharcyde, Styles P, Camp Lo, Dionne Farris, Fertile Ground, Oddisee, Hezekiah, Juggaknots, and Ursula Rucker. His podcast/mixtape series, High Yellow Soul, is a perfect blend of his first love, Hip-Hop fused with soulful R&B/Neo-Soul.
