“I’m excited to be a part of this event today. I want to make sure students understand they need to be well rounded, know the business, understand what they offer and understand there is more to being an artist than just performing,”
Hailing from Philadelphia, now based in Washington, D.C., Temika has been featured on FOX 5 DC, BET JAZZ, Music Choice, Eye Opener Philly and CENTRIC TV.
