Berklee’s Career Jam will culminate in a concert celebrating “godmother of the music industry” Sylvia Rhone and many of the genre-spanning, world-renowned artists she launched and has worked with throughout her career. Led by musical director Rob Lewis ‘94 (Christina Aguilera, New Kids on the Block, Toni Braxton, VH1, MTV), the concert will feature Berklee students performing the music of Missy Elliott, J.J. Fad, Tracy Chapman, Jason Mraz, and Camila Cabello.
Rhone began her career working as a secretary for Buddha Records in 1974. Over the next decade, she applied her talents at ABC Records, Ariola Records, and Elektra, eventually earning a role as vice president of Atlantic Records in 1986. During her time at Atlantic, she was responsible for such artists as MC Lyte, En Vogue, and Dream Theater. By 1994, she was the chair and CEO of Elektra Entertainment Group and launched the careers of Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Tracy Chapman, Jason Mraz, and others. Named president of Universal Motown Records and executive vice president at Universal Records in 2004, Rhone moved to Epic Records in 2012 and was named president in 2014, working alongside chairman and CEO Antonio “L.A.” Reid. She has headed the label’s operations since Reid stepped down in 2017, overseeing such stars as DJ Khaled, French Montana, Future, and Camila Cabello.
Berklee artist in residence Rob Lewis will hand-pick student performers to work with alongside Ensemble Department faculty throughout the semester to prepare for the tribute to Rhone.
