Message from a teenage opera:
this photofeature dispatch delved into the successful world of Teen Pop. On 9.3.14, multi-platinum, award-winning producer Andrew Lane (Backstreet Boys, Hannah Montana, Disneymania) presented the showcase/launch party for 15-year-old singer KODA CORVETTE at S.I.R. Studios in Hollywood CA, abetted by already mature talents of 12-year-old Miss Lela Brown and 11-year-old DJ Kiss. Mr. Lane displays much natural warmth in guiding these teen and pre-teen professionals through the rigors of today's pop music biz.
Ms. Corvette, originally from Portland OR by way of her Swiss-German family, evinced much confidence in her singing, songwriting, navigating the corps du ballet while dancing, and red carpet, work-the-room know how. She also performed a solo turn at the piano to show off that special voice. At the set's end, she thanked her choreographer as well as Mr. Lane, high-fiving the latter.
Opener was Miss Lela Brown, hip hop artist with an haute couture fashion model-worthy strut whose interactive approach to go carousing in the audience a la Iggy Pop was appreciated. DJ Kiss kept the sounds spinning.
