Provost-Student Advisory Group Presents Michael "Blue" Williams
Start Date: 12/4/2013Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 12/4/2013

Event Description:

Guns 4 Greatness and the Music Industry

With a career in entertainment that spans more than a decade and a half, Michael "Blue" Williams has managed the careers of some of hip-hop's and R&B's most prolific artists, including Outkast, Cee Lo Green, Jagged Edge, Macy Gray and Nick Cannon. His artists have sold more than 50 million combined albums and created business opportunities that many urban acts can only dream about.

As the head of Family Tree Entertainment, Williams oversees an independent record label, a management arm and a film and television division. In January 2010, Family Tree Entertainment entered into a management deal with Primary Wave Music, and in September 2011, Blue was at the wheel of another lucrative collaboration with the merging of Primary Wave Music and Violator Records to create Primary/Violator, a management, publishing and marketing firm within the Primary Wave umbrella. This endeavor, as well as the many others orchestrated by Williams, is proof positive of the effects of persistence, focused drive and a resilient spirit.

Williams launched Guns 4 Greatness to help end the senseless gun violence that has destroyed so many lives in urban  communities. Guns 4 Greatness combines a gun buy-back program with a mentorship program to save a generation of young men from a life of violence.
