The Platform: A Black Music Month Event 2015 held its 3rd annual social networking event on June 30 at Mood Ultra Lounge in Baltimore. Kevin Lei is the creator and executive producer of The Platform: A Black Music Month Event. In 2012, Kevin Lei produced his first show in Baltimore, MD for Black Music month honoring “The Godmother of R&B” Lil Mo’. Each year Lei has continued to bring awareness and attention to Black Music month by acknowledging the accomplishments of artists and performers alike. The show brings together performers and honorees from all genres of music to create an unforgettable experience. Kevin Lei’s purpose for producing this event is to celebrate Black Music and provide a ‘Platform’ for artists, hosts, media outlets, honorees and attendees to network, socialize and continue individual brand expansion. The 2015 Artist Achievement Award Recipients were DJ SPEN and Maurette Brown Clark. April Hall, Jessica Green, Freedom Imani, David Lyve, Therron Fowler, Khare Hawkins, Lia Songbird and Christen B. were the performing artist featured at this year’s event.
