Updated: May 31
Radio Mix, DJ Joe Smooth is quite known in London, and has projects done with Chaka Khan, Bobby Jones, Destiny's Child, Omarion, etc. Joe Smooth has combined forces with #WeR1 creator, Lowell Beasley, to film, edit and produce the new #WeR1 TV series that will present different episodes and different celebs each week , with a constantly growing and expanding list of stars about to break, past icons and legends, stars on the rise and stars just beginning, all mixed together in unity to create #WeR1.
The end goal is a huge 72 hour concert, the world's largest virtual concert, launching over July 4 weekend called #WeR1 Unity. The virtual concert was created from the new norm of the " stay at home", " lockdown", Quarantine" concerts , or as I -Heart radio produced,
" Living Room Concerts".
#WeR1 is a mixture of stay at home " live" concerts, pre-recorded concerts, or " live" concert footage from the past mixed with music videos of the artists. The artist participants will generally send intros, shout-outs or their own oral submissions to inspire, empower and incite unity. It is a multi-artist, multi-genre presentation.
R & B legends Alexander O'Neal and Alyson Williams have signed on as the celebrity hosts , off-setting the #WE hosts, Aileen Lopez and Jessica Mendoza, the artist known as Black Pearl.
Black Pearl is credited as a Producer on the project and it was actually her who reached out and got Joe Smooth involved as Joe Smooth is her producer/ manager.
#WeR1 is launching a 30 weekly TV series starting tomorrow night on The NOW Network as a promo and infomercial leading up to "the world's largest virtual concert" on May 16. The weekly TV series airs every Friday night at 12 midnight (ET); 11 pm ( CT) and 9 pm ( PT). The 3rd and 4th episodes are being filmed this week in London and Washington, DC.
The July 4 extravaganza will not be a one-time event as #WeR1 will be a huge global telecast quarterly, airing every 3 months with different themes and various causes.
