(1888 PressRelease) The deal encompasses an exclusive multi-year, multi-faceted arrangement with extensive Canadian media entity, The AMG Corp.
Toronto – AMG Management, a division of Canadian media giant, The AMG Corp, is pleased to announce the international signing of Canadian pop-star, Mikeila Grace. Mikeila’s discovery comes from a close monitoring of social media by AMG’s Management, Alana Yip-Hoi & Gail Racanelli. The deal encompasses an exclusive multi-year, multi-faceted arrangement featuring recordings, live concert performances inclusive of merchandising content with the 17 year old vocal powerhouse and songwriter. AMG will share more details on the new multi-year relationship in the near future.
Mikeila Grace began singing on stage in talent shows and participating in church & school choirs since the age of seven. Excelling academically, with honour role status, Mikeila started playing minor roles in local community music productions such as Mary Poppins. Mikeila was a student by day and a pop star by night. With an Italian Filipino heritage you can bet there was a karaoke machine in the house and unlike other little girls playing with dolls she always had a microphone in hand, singing and delivering gut-wrenching performances.
“We’re thrilled to reach a deal with Mikeila Grace to bring one of the hottest performing music artists around, and her unique talents to her many fans internationally in new and exclusive ways,” said AMG’s management partners Mark S. Berry, Alana Yip-Hoi & Gail Racanelli. “We’re excited to commence recording on her debut album and getting it into the hands of her fans. Mikeila is a young woman with a message and a unique, lyrical way of communicating her perspective on life that makes you feel connected to every note she sings. We believe she is going to be an important Canadian artist to watch unfold. We are so ecstatic the world gets to hear her music now, both online and on tour.”
AMG’s Executive Vice President, Duane Farley states, “I was absolutely astounded after hearing Mikeila’s voice and learning she was only 16 years old. I look forward to finding the right songs to showcase her beautiful voice.”
“It is an honour to join The AMG Corp and to continue working with our friends Mark, Alana and Gail.” commented Mikeila in the AMG announcement release. “I trust their vision and admire their professionalism, and I look forward to our partnership.”
