Last year Bravo TV special, “The Kandi Factory,” starring “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Kandi Burruss was proven to be a phenomenal idea. According to ABC News, the 90-minute music competition attracted 1.4 million viewers. With numbers like that, it took Bravo almost no time to realize that the show was a recipe for success and in April of 2012 the network announced that they would be morphing the show into a full series. One year later, Bravo TV is gearing up for the April premiere of that series and Kandi appears to be totally thrilled.
“I’m so excited about #TheKandiFactory airing on April 9th! On this show I get a chance to step away from drama & do what I love! #write songs & help people reach there dreams!” the singer and reality star posted to her Instagram page.
“The Kandi Factory” will offer 16 aspiring artists the opportunity to “jumpstart” their musical careers with the assistance of the Grammy Award-winning singer and her team of experts, which according to Broadway World includes:
Don Vito: Executive producer responsible for Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy for the Party” single.
Victor Jackson: Georgia-based choreographer who has coordinated performances for artists such as Lil Wayne, En Vogue and Chante Moore.
Kwame Waters: Celebrity wardrobe stylist and personal shopper. In the past, Waters has worked with celebs such as Perri “Pebbles” Reid, Tiny and En Vogue.
During the show, Kandi hopes to discover music’s next big star as she coaches the 16 contestants, with the help of her team through musical, choreographic and imaging transformations. In each episode of “The Kandi Factory” two contestants who do a superb job of standing out to Kandi and the crew will be one step closer to snagging the ultimate career opportunity, which will be a song based on one of their life experiences, written by Burruss personally. Winners will also receive a music video produced by Kandi’s expert team.
“The Kandi Factory” is scheduled to premiere April 9th 10/9c. This sounds like a great opportunity for those seeking to break into the music industry. It’s also a very positive look for Kandi.
