“The Sleepover” is a monthly event created by artist, event host and actress Miz Korona (8 Mile, Beef, Say My Name, Detroit Diamond). This artists showcase elevates talented artists, producers, DJs and poets throughout Michigan that don’t always get the same opportunities as the more seasoned artists and performers in their communities. The event places undiscovered as well as discovered artists on an equal platform.
“This gives the future stars of our musical generation a chance to network and perform alongside artists who are more established,” said Korona, adding that demand from within the community to bring back this event inspired her to relaunch it on Oct. 19 from 9 p.m. – 1 a.m. at Bob’s Classic Kicks, 4717 Woodward Ave. in Detroit.
The showcase has brought in many key figures in the Hip Hop industry such as Freeway (Roc-A- Fella Records), Finally Famous, Burn Rubber (Owners), DSE Grand Owner, Interscope Records A & R’s, International graffiti artist’s Shades 313, D12, Trick Trick as well as Universal and Def Jam recording artists.
There is also the Feed a Family charity event chapter of this showcase that happens during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.
