It Takes A Village Gives 8 Rising Artists a Platform

It Takes A VillageOn May 11th, 2019, A Village United held its debut event entitled It Takes A Village – a musical showcase that gave eight rising artists a platform to shine and share their art. Founded by Bronx-native Eric Davon, the showcase was designed to create a village amongst likeminded individuals who are able to listen and learn from one another through art. The artists who took the stage consisted of a diverse group of singers and rappers who all put their own spin on their performances, some adding choreographed dancing, others bringing a full band – all for the love of their art.

It Takes A VillageA panel of four entrepreneurs, who are artists in their own respects, inspired the crowd by sharing their success stories, their plans for leaving a legacy in their fields and paying homage to their own village who has helped them throughout the way.

A Village United partnered with Damatrix Studios Network (DSN) radio station to help create exposure for the artists. DSN held one-on-one interviews that aired on their website (www.damatrixstudios.com), their mobile app (DSNBX), and throughout their social media platforms.

Assisting in cataloging the event, David Anthony, contributing photographer for Taji Magazine, was in attendance. David captured all elements of the event from performances, audience takes, panel discussions and some behind the scenes moments of the members of The Village.

The event garnered a crowd of 70+ with connections made and the start of A Village United.
