The Sunset Kings Collaborate with T-Pain's Protege Miu


 The pop sensation from Haiti met The Sunset Kings frontman at CDBaby’s DIY Music Conference in Chicago last September where they learned from industry staples such as music blogger and lifestylist Ari Herstand, rock photographer Becky Yee, and Patreon founder Jack Conte.
David, Miu’s manager, says about The Sunset Kings,

“There are plenty of musicians we met in Chicago, but what we like about The Sunset Kings is they are authentic.  They’re not trying to prove anything to anybody.”


The budding partnership continued long-distance; while The Sunset Kings continue to embed themselves as active contributors to the Boston arts community with their release of “Rose-Tinted Raybans” (https://youtu.be/aPW27UVX-yk), Miu’s international career has grown steadily as crowds in Miami and New York City begin to match her audience in Port-au-Prince.
Now Hear This Entertainment’s feature of Miu attributes her success not only to her work ethic and ambition but on the fact that she is,

“Multi-lingual, she participated in an international competition that resulted in a single with American artist T-Pain. She has collaborated with various arrangers from locations ranging from St. Lucia to Puerto Rico, Tanzania, the United States, and, of course, Haiti, and also published a book of poems in French and plans on writing again.”

Garnering over 277,000 YouTube views on her Fall 2015 single, “They Say”, Miu’s artistic energy is undeniable, and her collaboration with The Sunset Kings is bound to result in a sound we haven’t yet heard from either artist.

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
