Dominguez Hills is full of talented students. Bianca Ramirez, senior and public relations major, is using her media skills to work an event that will act as a platform for these talents to be displayed. Presented by Raytroniks comes Platinum Mic Night at Project LA on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m.
“The 2016 Platinum Mic Night L.A. Open Mic Series has been a great experience for me and my career in public relations,” said Ramirez. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with a variety of indie artists, as well as the Iconic Entertainment Norwood family.”
Recently working alongside reality TV star Ray J, Ramirez is currently working as a co-executive event coordinator for the Platinum Mic Night Los Angeles’ Open Mic Series, as well as co-hosting the live event.
Any musically inclined students who are interested in performing at Platinum Mic Night can submit a performance track to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Since the start of this project I’ve been expanding my campaign management skills and increasing my network,” Ramirez said. “This has been a great learning experience and I hope to continue this journey.”
The Platinum Mic Night is not only an opportunity for students to perform music, but a contest. Performers who make it to the final round could win a 1,000 cash prize, single record deal, professional photo-shoot, vocal production and coaching, three professional interviews with media outlets (of PMNLA’s choice), and much more.
