Black Bold

Find Your Bold Contest

“On behalf of Kenneth Cole, Indaba Music, and myself, I want to thank each and every one of you who entered the Find Your Bold Contest. It's been truly incredible hearing all of the inspiring submissions that so many bold artists from across the country sent in. There was such a diversity of talent from producers to vocalists to musicians that it was very hard to choose. I was deeply moved by many of the submissions.
Today, I'm proud to finally announce that Brielle Marie is the winner of the Find Your Bold Contest.
Brielle, I can't wait to meet you soon to record in the studio here in sunny LA. I was really impressed by your submission and I think we're going to have a great time working together. Thanks again to everyone who submitted and please keep an eye and an ear out for the new song featuring Brielle Marie.” –Aloe Blacc


“My relationship with music means the world to me. I have been doing music since I was a child. Music is a part of me; it makes me feel complete. But I truly knew that music was my calling while doing missionary work in Mexico and The Dominican Republic. I learned of the effect music has on the world when I saw the impact my music had on impoverished kids with very little, but who were still filled with so much joy. I want to use my music to bring people from all over the world together and to help the less fortunate.
My goals are to one day be in the Songwriters Hall of Fame and to be one of the greatest philanthropists ever. We are only on this earth a short time, and I want to use my art to help make this world a better place. I love different cultures and I love different styles of music. Variety is the spice of life. That's how I treat my music. Like food, I always want to give my best presentation when you sit at the table and I feed you. I want you to have plenty to eat and feel like you have been treated magnificently.” –Brielle Marie
