Premiered April 19, 2020
What women have to risk to be in the music industry?

The music industry is primarily run by men. Women are viewed under a harsher spotlight than their male counterparts. Our hosts take a look at the pros and cons of the music business. Jonnetta Patton, Usher Raymond's mother, and a highly respected entertainment manager, along with Ursula Yancy, a 3-time Grammy-nominated songwriter, joins the table to share their experiences and advice.
