Top 5 African American Entrepreneurs to look out for in 2020

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- While many entrepreneurs would say earning big isn’t significant, many others differ and want to get super-rich. If the way of other famed entrepreneurs is any judge, you may have made the best career choice.

1. JR McKEE -
JR McKee is the Head of Digital Sales and Revenue at Alamo Records and a music industry veteran with over 15 years of experience in A&R, artist management / development and hit songwriting, which has led him to contribute (creatively or otherwise) to songs, selling in excess of 10 million singles with his own production & management label, Family Ties Entertainment.

McKee’s humble beginnings from Starkville, Mississippi throwing parties coupled with his internal drive and curiosity would lead him to garner professional relationships, mold and help manage rising talent and align with top tier executives in the industry to earn his current status and the wealth of knowledge and experience he’s gained along the way. Now his goal is to educate artists on the difference between the “music business” and the “streaming business”.

He’s currently building out a platform to curate conversation around these and other music industry-related topics (How Do I Get Playlisting? How Do I Market My Music? How Do I Make Money Off My Music?), aptly titled, “Shared Information”. He tackles this and more in his most recent “Intro To Streaming” webinar where he answers some of the most commonly asked questions about streaming and how artists should approach the business model.
