LOS ANGELES, CA (July 25, 2013) – NFL star Kerry Rhodes (www.TheKerryRhodesFoundation.com) knows how to warm up a crowd. The Bessemer, AL native returned home July 13 and July 15 to lead his community in a weekend of fitness and health-related activities designed to combat the growing problem of obesity amongst Alabama residents. In a partnership with Now Let’s Get Fit, Kerry hopes his efforts will continue to grow and envisions this event as the first of many.

“It’s always good to come home,” Kerry said, “but when you see how much people suffer from obesity, you understand why it’s such a debilitating disease. It’s worth engaging with the community just to see people smiling and enjoying themselves, but we’re really here to help people change their lives in a fun, meaningful and impactful way.”

Joining Kerry were Karina Smirnoff from ABC’s Dancing With The Stars and former Miss California Tami Farrell, who helped lead dance and exercise classes at Bessemer’s Legacy YMCA. Saturday, July 13, kicked off with a proclamation from Mayor Gulley, who thanked The Kerry Rhodes Foundation and Now Let’s Get Fit for their work in the community. After a rousing and high-energy family class, participants were treated to a hearty and healthy meal from Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q.

On Monday, July 15, guests first lined up for autographs from Kerry Rhodes and Karina Smirnoff, before joining an aerobics and dance class taught by the two athletes. Karina’s precise and high-octane routines left participants sweating, but feeling happy, and an enthusiastic crowd eventually filed out into the warm Alabama night a few hours later.

“Obesity is a growing problem,” said Kerry. “More than one-third of American adults are obese, and Alabama ranks in the top five most obese states in the country. I can’t wait to get the word out and do this again,” Kerry added.

Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q and Chrysler’s Town & Country Van were celebrated sponsors of the event.

Both organizations are dedicated to creating a fun, inspiring and interactive scholastic experience with Kerry Rhodes, celebrity guests and health care specialists through events, educational tools and fitness activities.

On Saturday, July 13, and Monday, July 15, Now Let’s Get Fit will be hosting its first annual two-day event at Bessemer’s Legacy YMCA, where Kerry will appear alongside Karina Smirnoff from the hit TV show Dancing With The Stars and former Miss California Tami Farrell. Saturday between 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., participants will be invited to free obesity related testing and screening sessions before Kerry and Tami lead families in a series of home exercises, followed by a healthy, free lunch. Monday evening from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m., Karina Smirnoff and Kerry will be signing autographs before leading two adult fitness workout classes and talking about healthy ways to improve diets on a budget until 9 p.m.

Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q, a sponsor of the event, will be preparing a healthy lunch for participants, and UAB Medical West will be conducting obesity screenings and testing.

Kerry Rhodes invites you, your family and your friends to join Now Let’s Get Fit and contribute to the fight against obesity. One person can make a difference; only a movement can end the threat. Reserve your spot by signing up at The Kerry Rhodes Foundation.

Since his start in entertainment, Lewis has channeled his writing ability for such artists as Jawan Harris, Ciara, Usher, T-Pain, and many more. Lewis has also partnered with Ed Moore, a choreographer who has worked with stars like Usher and Janet Jackson.

In addition to performing, Lewis Rocc has discovered and produced many emerging talents through his production company, Hoodrich Entertainment.

LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 2, 2013) – Fame is influence. Actors, athletes and musicians all have one thing in common — exposure. Their lives are led in the public domain, giving their audiences unrestricted access to what they do, where they go, how they shop and what they endorse. Entertainment PR firms face the challenge of fine-tuning this influence through media to fulfill the needs of their clients.
This was the hot topic as Eileen Koch of Eileen Koch & Company sat down for a roundtable discussion (via www.PRWeekUS.com) with PRWeek alongside PMK*BMC, United Talent Agency, 20th Century FOX Films, Starz, Red Bull Media House, The Axis Agency, BMI and YouTube to talk about the status of the Entertainment industry today and what is means to be a content-conscious “brand.”
With the rise of social media, celebrities and budding businesses alike can now deliver content straight to their followers without using traditional mediums, a unique development for PR professionals.
“Not everybody is the ‘theatrical’ celebrity,” Eileen observed. “They could be chefs or hairdressers. Social media has opened the door for the ‘average person’ looking to gain publicity and build their business.”
The panel also highlighted how Facebook, YouTube and other websites have changed companies’ approach to media strategy. Traditional publications still allow easy access to industry professionals, but Entertainment firms have to be savvy enough to work with clients that self-publish through blogs and remain true to their online “voice.”
“My big focus [in the future] will be client education on the latest technologies and getting them to understand their values,” Eileen stated.
With media outreach the proof is in the pudding, but convincing clients that their money is well-spent remains a top priority. Data is always reassuring, but sometimes difficult to produce. “It’s still hard to show clients the value of what we do,” Eileen said, “but if we can get there, it takes us up another level.”
The roundtable discussion was jointly hosted by PRWeek and PMK*BMC, and was the first to feature the heavy hitters of Los Angeles’ Publicity and Marketing industry.

LOS ANGELES, CA- (Feb 24, 2013) Celebrity stylist Eric Archibald (eric-archibald.com) sat anxiously on the set of E! Live From the Red Carpet at the Hotel Roosevelt on Oscar Sunday as he waited for the highly anticipated red carpet arrival of his client, Jennifer Hudson. With an 80lb weight loss since her Academy Award debut in 2007, the Oscar winner, styled by Archibald, donned a slinky, body hugging Roberto Cavalli Couture metallic blue gown (hand beaded in Paris), paired with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and a Jimmy Choo clutch. Notorious for making best-dressed lists, Hudson was the perfect muse for the couture ensemble.

During the E! Live From the Red Carpet pre-Oscar show, Hudson told Ryan Seacrest, “It took three days of fittings, three hours each day to make my decision. It’s a serious decision. My stylist cried tears of joy [when I finally decided].” In response, Eric told E! “Jennifer likes to be comfortable, and feel like what she is wearing is a second skin. She looks amazing.”

With a huge smile from behind the scenes at E!, Archibald rushed to the Dolby Theater where he prepared Hudson for her upcoming live performance. Not only did she “wow” on the red carpet, the singer/actress brought audiences to their feet with one of the most powerful and memorable Oscar performances to date. For her breathtaking Dreamgirls performance of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” Archibald dressed the starlet in a copper KAUFMANFRANCO crystal encrusted linear column gown.

To complete Oscar night, Archibald attended the Vanity Fair after-party with Hudson, making sure every thread was in place, as they relished in the Oscar history that had been made. The stylist humbly said, “Dressing Jennifer for the Oscars is such an honor, and I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to showcase her beauty through such amazing fashion and designs.”

The NY native, known for his celebrity clientele, also recently dressed Jennifer Hudson in a curve-hugging black and white ensemble for her chilling Super Bowl 2013 performance of “America the Beautiful” with the Sandy Hook Elementary students, as well as the 2013 Inaugural Ball where she performed “Let’s Stay Together” for President Barack Obama, and First Lady, Michelle Obama.
