Capri Lawrence. If you're an independent music artist living in Virginia, this name needs to be in your repertoire, directory, or contact list if you are looking to become successful in your career.

She's no stranger in the arena of promoting, hosting, managing, supporting, networking, invasions or putting VA artists on the map. Her expertise landed her an award for "The Best Promoter in Virginia." Her rapidly growing business, A Milly Entertainment, has filtered many artists through some large platforms, events, & venues promoted by none other than herself, which created a name she couldn't avoid nor dispute-- "Da Bestest."

You may remember her name as the Virginia promoter that brought Jeezy to Norfolk exclusively for her birthday tribute. However, she continues to prove that she does much more in the world of black music entertainment. In fact, Jeezy isn't the only "big name" she has had the pleasure of working next to. During her promoting & event planning career, she has had the privilege of booking R&B singer, Monica, on a Mercedes Sprinter, & recently, she has heavily promoted Dave East & Glorilla & their upcoming events scheduled in Hampton Roads. Adding to personally promoted events was Jeezy's next VA appearance, & she shares that she can be found backstage following the show.

She's the professional 757 independent music plug & guru for all of the local independent artists across Hampton Roads & has expanded across Virginia. Her passion to see everyone succeed is what fuels the heavy legwork in coordinating to actually execute plans to make events happen. She shamelessly campaigns for Virginia artists daily & opens the stage to talent during showcases & open mic nights.

As the Something In the Water Festival (hosted by VA artist Pharrell & Phriends) is approaching, Capri has expressed her desire to work alongside Pharrell to bring some local talent to the "big stage."

If a list of events, tasks, or achievements is needed to display her capability & influence in the world of music, research has made it possible to compile a brief portfolio.

Let's start with her festivals & weekend events which are well-attended & largely loved events. The Spring Fest, Fall Fest, & A Milly Fest are amongst the most popular & always described as "one for the books." She's known to bring a crowd together with a vibe they can rock to.

Capri has impacted the radio air with close connections with one of the local Hampton Roads DJs, DJ Jack of Spade. She has also dominated a spot on 103 Jamz for #PriPickoftheWeek. Many of her artists' competed for a spot at the radio station's Best Of the 7 Cities Award Show.

Adding to Capri's already extensive resume, she was given the opportunity to be a part of the 420ish (See You in the Clouds) festival in 2022 where Remy Ma, Yung Joc, Mobb Deep, Trina/Trick Daddy, Plies, Young MA, Gucci Mane, City Girls, Rick Ross, & Capo Santana, & more shared the stage with 420ish A Milly Ent. rising star, NoSlime Spazz.

Over the past weeks & months to come, she has a spread of activities for music artists & supporters like A Milly Ent, Invades Flirt Fridays at Notorious Lounge, Open Mic Night at West Beach Tavern, & upcoming Allow Me to Introduce Myself (March 18th) at West Beach Tavern as well as King Talk with Da Bestest & Friends.

Capri will be in the company of Wendy Day, yes Wendy Day, on May 20th as A Milly Ent presents The Experience Open Studio Vibe Session with Wendy Day as the special guest. She has worked with legends like Tupac, Ruff Ryders, Boosie, David Banner, & many more of our favorite artists. The event has free entry & scheduled from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. This is a FREE investment that Capri (A Milly Ent) secured & scheduled for artist development with a special interest in her heart for local independent 757/VA artists.

Capri wants to work with Pharrell as a promoter & music artist guru to filter through independent VA artists in the 2024 SITW festival. She knows talent. She supports talent. She promotes talent. She creates moments. She produces memories.

Her resume, business ethic, management skills, & artists say she can fill the SITW venue with talent, energy, & musical freedom. She's the heart of the music industry here in Hampton Roads & our indie music hometown hero.

Pri gives opportunities to everyone else, it's time for us to help give her opportunities. With support, we can get the message to Pharrell.
