You may have heard Marley Young being touted by Tech N9ne or maybe you saw the IG video of Nelly rocking out to his break out single ‘Drip Crip God’?
Although Marley is no stranger to the game, his burgeoning hip hop career has been on the upswing in recent years. Most noted for is cool demeanor, lack of gimmicks and raw talent, it is no wonder that he has been deemed “next up” by industry hitters.
Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, a young Marley was enamored by the arts and the idea of creativity. Having entered Shakespearian competitions and written scripts could only catapult the then young talent into the stellar artistry that we now witness. 
His hometown has provided the perfect backdrop for Marley to paint the robust and colorful pictures that so many look forward to through his music, The Marley Experience.
Marley Young has been busy. Behind the scenes he has penned for Hip Hop notables, Gucci Mane and Young Bloods. He and his team have launched, HITM Music Group, a Kansas City based label that will nurture and develop local and independent talent. His cup runneth over!
His dues in the game have not gone unnoticed. You can catch Marley on the Tech N9ne’s latest album as a feature titled, ‘For Ya Love’. His other break out singles, ‘Makaveli’ and ‘Drip Crip God’ can be found on Spotify and are headed to a stage near you.

DR. HEVAL

As a young Syrian Kurdish refugee washing dishes in a restaurant to support his family, Heval Kelli could not know that many years later he would be a distinguished fellow in cardiology at a university less than one mile from where his journey in the United States began.  Facing a steep language learning curve, a monthly rent payment, and mountains of dirty dishes, Heval knew things could be much worse.  He and his family fled persecution in Syria where his father was beaten and imprisoned by the pol​ice.
As members of the Kurdish minority, the family had few choices and paid a smuggler to get them out.  His family arrived in Germany in 1996 and lived in refugee camps till 2001. A circuitous route of migration finally brought them to the United States 2 weeks after the 9/11 where they were assisted by members of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in their adjustment and resettlement in Clarkston, Georgia. Through a network of caring community members, Heval was introduced to Dr. Omar Lattouf, an Emory cardiothoracic surgeon who took an interest in mentoring him through his undergraduate pre-med work at Georgia State University and his admission to Morehouse School of Medicine where he graduated cum laude and selected by his classmate as "Most Inspiring Person" award. He finished his internal medicine residency training at Emory University and received recognition as resident of the year as well as honorable distinctions in social and inpatient medicine. Dr. Kelli was awarded the Katz Foundation Fellowship in Preventative Cardiology at Emory University where he completed his cardiology fellowship in 2020. 
As a result of his life experiences, Dr. Kelli is a steadfast advocate for serving communities in need especially immigrant, refugee and minority communities.  He is a co-founder of several non-profit organizations focused on medical mentorship (Young Physician Initiative & U-Beyond) and healthcare outreach (You4Prevent).
He is the co-founder and president of the Kurdish American Medical Association, an organization focused connecting Kurdish American doctors with medical and college students. With the leadership of Georgia State University professor Dr. Mary Helen O'Connor, he co-founded Mentorship Initiative for New Americans where it provides mentoring support to refugee and immigrant young adults pursuing admission to colleg
e. Dr. Kelli volunteers his medical expertise at various free clinics which they provide free medical care to uninsured individuals in the community where he grew up. He was named chairman of the Service Committee at the World Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Kelli was named the 2017 Friend of Freedom award. He received the 40 under 40 awards at all of the institutes where he completed his education including  the 2018 inaugural Georgia State University 40 under 40 award , 2019 Morehouse School of Medicine 10 under 40 and 2019 Emory University 40 under 40 alumni award.
​He was also an invited guest by the Bush Family at the Air Force One Departure ceremony for President George H.W. Bush and received the first Points of Light award after his passing.

Tamera Currington of Vegan Soulsistuhs



Tamera Currington never imagined that her desire to create a safe place for women of color around health and wellness would result in such success. Her Vegan Soul Sistuhs Facebook and Instagram groups have exceeded her wildest expectations while creating a platform for growth and discovery. The Facebook group is a dream for anyone that is curious about a vegan, vegetarian, vegan-ish or a plant-based lifestyle. It is ripe with recipes, questions about transitioning to healthier eating, health tips, and is managed by over 100 administrators.

Vegan Soul Sistuhs was founded out of the love for Tamera’s then 20-year-old daughter that was suffering from congestive heart failure. Together they adapted a plant based, vegan diet and the results were astounding. Tamera released 60 pounds and was able to make adjustments to her medication while her overall health increased. Her daughter, after suffering two strokes, was able to double her heart function and was on the mend.  She was sure that other could benefit from this information and so began her labor of love.

Two years later, Vegan Soul Sistuhs has grown to over 40,000 members, and continues to thrive. Branded merchandise includes t-shirts, hoodies, bags, and cook books. This year she is planning her first retreat in Jamaica and has launched an additional Facebook group, “VeganSoulsistuhs & the BrothasWhoLove em”, so the men can feel the love too.  

A new partnership finds Vegan Soul Sistuhs expanding beyond social media. You can expect to see them in your city soon conducting cooking classes, workshops and other branded events.

Creators of Flourish Oils
Avanelle & Petula
 
 

Flourish oils was born out of the desire to develop clean, healthy, pure, natural products which not only make you smell and feel good on the outside, but also help you to nurture your inner-being. Holistic Beauty IS our religion and we are on a constant quest to create products that infuse wellness of mind, body and spirit. At the essence of flourish is a marriage of all the elements that embody what it means to FLOURISH.

Flourish promotes the philosophy that true beauty is a reflection of the internal self. The scented oils were created to not only nourish the skin, but to also compliment the beauty that radiates from within.

Their handcrafted, hand-poured oils contain a handful of all-natural ingredients, such as 100% pure shea butter, sweet almond and jojoba oils, as well as organic essential oils. They do not use synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.

SAMUEL E. ARCHER

 

 Samuel completed his first book, "Hybrid Executive," [The new Terminology and Responsibilities of today's artists.] In the pages, Samuel expounds on how technology affected various roles in the music industry, what make these roles essential and how these roles interact with each other. Within his discussions of concepts and principles, Samuel also adds his personal experiences, which makes "Hybrid Executive," an exciting and informative read. Samuel considers "Hybrid Executive," a self-empowering manual for today's indie artists.

Hybrid Executive is a terminology and title today’s Indie artists can proudly use to define who they are. In this book, Samuel explains why it’s essential for up and coming artists to be familiar with all sectors of the modern music industry [such as management, artist & repertoire. Production, distribution, marketing, and sales, etc.] combined with understanding how each area interacts with the other.
 
Samuel has worked with artists and groups such as B2K, Horace Brown, 112, Courtney Fadlin, His Voice, Lovener Walcott, Aquannette Chinnery, Delroy Souden, Miriam Corlette Williams and Nhojj to mention a few. He has contributed music to T.V. shows - Dr. 90210, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, Property Ladder, How Clean Is Your House, Millionaire Matchmaker, and many others. He has also scored for films such as The Lockdown Club, All I Want, Moving In, Blue Suitcase, The Documentary: On The Road to Love Pain & Redemption and more.
