NEW ‘MENTOR’ APPEARANCES BY BRANDY AND MIKE POSNER
‘MENTORS’ PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED: LEONA LEWIS, JORDIN SPARKS, SEAN KINGSTON AND RYAN TEDDER
Parents can apply on behalf of their children and submit their children’s video auditions at: http://majorsandminorscasting.com.
The new groundbreaking music-based performance competition is thrilled to announce that Brandy and Mike Posner will guest appear on the show. Already set to appear is Leona Lewis, Jordin Sparks, Sean Kingston and One Republic’s Ryan Tedder. These “Mentors” will help guide the talented young cast as they embark on their individual journeys toward achieving their dreams.
Boardwalk principal Evan Bogart, the songwriting hit-maker for music stars Rihanna and Beyonce, along with Boardwalk partners and acclaimed TV producers Timothy Bogart and Gary A. Randall will produce the series for The Hub in partnership with Sony Music Entertainment’s The RCA /JIVE Label Group and BMI.
There will be no “losers” on Majors and Minors. Over the course of the 15-episode series the entire cast will be taught by the guest “Majors/Mentors,” sharpening and honing the skills they come in with, ensuring that everybody leaves the experience better prepared to make the journey to capture their dreams ahead. While no one ever gets “voted off,” at the end of the series one lucky cast member, viewed by the celebrity mentors and producers as having the greatest breakout potential, will win a recording deal (with Boardwalk and the RCA/JIVE Label Group), a music publishing deal, and the chance to become the featured star in a cross-country live tour with the entire cast.
