The name 4Shore pays homage to the group’s hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Consisting of Allynn (CynCere), Brandon (B. Show), Daijreous (Dai Dream) and Jessie (J. None), four childhood friends determined to leave a lasting impression on the music industry and be the cure for the dying breed of “boy bands”. Having known each other for years, 4Shore decided to come together and perform for the annual Beachstreet USA series. Night after night, 4Shore honed their craft in front of adoring audiences which consisted of tourist from around the globe. With the ability to draw a crowd, it wasn’t long before the group had industry A&R’s and record label executives on the lookout for the talented quartet.
In 2011, the group auditioned for Simon Cowells “The X-Factor USA”. The young quartet took a risk and performed the L.A. Reid penned “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men in front of L.A. Reid himself. After a standing ovation from the judges as well as the audience, it seemed 4Shore was unstoppable. Advancing through to 3 phases of the competition, 4Shores X-factor dreams were surprisingly cut short when Paula Abdul opted not to bring them any further. However, this has not deterred 4Shore from their dream of making a career in music.
4Shore is more than just a group of guys who sing, they are talent in all the fields of entertainment. From being sought after event performers, host, and mentors, the best is truly yet to come.

THE NEW YORK FAME is happy to announce KEKE WYATT as our host for "FAME ROCKS FASHION WEEK 2012". Coming from  a musical background KEKE WYATT is perfect fit for this event showcasing our emerging talent.  Keke Wyatt’s third album UNBELIEVABLE! at last captures the full range of her talent, as she is joined by special guest vocalists Ruben Studdard, Kelly Price and Tweet. Shanachie Entertainment will release the album on June 14, 2011. 

The title UNBELIEVABLE! may refer to several things—disbelief that life could be so sweet after so much struggle; amazement people feel when experiencing the stunning power of Keke’s vocalizing; or even disbelief that the media-fueled image of “wild” Keke Wyatt is not credible once you meet the real person behind the image—a hard-working mother of four children who speaks directly from her heart. One of the new songs on the album, “Light Me Up,” sets the tone, an upbeat celebration of the transforming power of new love. “This album has more songs that were thought out and sought out," Keke relates. “It expresses more where I am in my life now as far as relationships and music are concerned." Featuring production from such hit-making producers as Shep Crawford (Tamia, Kelly Price), JR Hutson (Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild), Steve Morales and Jesus Bobe (Lyfe Jennings) as well as hot up-and-coming producers Ryan Pate and Oliver Gabriel of Satellite Music Group and Dante "Inferno" Jackson, the album touches many bases—love, sex, abuse and spirituality. “Enough,” for instance, tells the tale of a woman reaching a point in which she decides she will endure no more. “Mirror,” is a musical three-way between Keke, Kelly Price and Tweet, offers the perspective of three women looking at themselves honestly in the context of bad relationships. 

In 2004, the songstress signed to Cash Money Records. Her first single for the company, “Put Your Hands On Me,” became the #1 most added urban track on the radio in April 2005. However the single didn’t hit and her album was shelved. After being released from Cash Money, Keke signed with TVT Records in 2006 and recorded the GHETTO ROSE album. The title track was released as a single and began picking up airplay but TVT suddenly declared bankruptcy before the album could be released. Keke then licked her wounds and used the time off to write, act, and devote time to family. The release of her second album WHO KNEW? by Shanachie in 2010 marked her return to the spotlight, with the title track single garnering urban airplay and a haunting version of Rachelle Ferrell’s “Peace On Earth” receiving acclaim. Now, with the release of UNBELIEVABLE!, the years of “hurry up and wait” are over. Keke concludes, "I'm aiming at what all artists want to do, aiming to be at the top of the charts, being in front of everyone's eyes, performing at the Grammys, it's all good!”


THE NEW YORK FAME is happy to announce Shontelle as our featured performer for "FAME ROCKS FASHION WEEK 2012". Universal/Motown Recording Artist Shontelle began work on her debut studio album in early 2008, and completed the album in six months. The album's title was given to her by the album's engineer who used the word "shontelligence" as a joke after Shontelle and her producers were playing a game that involved making up words from her name."T-Shirt", Shontelle's debut single, was released in July 2008 and reached number thirty-six on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming a moderate hit. However, it reached the top ten in the United Kingdom, peaking at number six there.

Shontelligence (2008–2009)
Shontelle's debut album, Shontelligence, was released on November 18, 2008. The album reached number 115 on the Billboard 200, selling 6,200 records in its first week, and reached number twenty-four on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It was re-released on March 10, 2009, and has since sold 30,000 records in the US.
The second single from the album, "Stuck with Each Other", featuring Akon, was released in February 2009 in the US and May 2009 in the UK. The single failed to chart in the US, but reached number twenty-three in the United Kingdom. Shontelle toured as a supporting act for the UK leg of the New Kids on the Block World Tour in January 2009. Shontelle was also Beyoncé Knowles' opening act for her I Am... Tour from May to June 2009 during the British leg.
Shontelle was also the host of My Prom Style! and Universal Motown's 2009 Ultimate Prom fashion reality series. She performed at a high school prom in New York City in June 2009, but first she led three students in a competition to design the dress that singer Kat DeLuna, the headliner, wore at the Ultimate Prom concert.

No Gravity (2009–2010)

Shontelle's second album, No Gravity, was released in the US on September 21, 2010. Shontelle stated that the album would be experimental and that she wanted to change her original sound for the record.While the title 'No Gravity' symbolises a mantra, Shontelle states she has adapted to her life and to her career, to motivate herself to keep climbing higher and to have nothing hold her down or hold her back.Shontelle collaborated with Bruno MarsTony Kanal and Darkchild among others for the record. In the first week of release, No Gravity placed at number 81 on the Billboard 200, selling 7,000 copies. Later that year Shontelle would co write Rihanna's song "Man Down" from her fifth studio album Loud (Rihanna album).
The lead single from the album, "Impossible", was released in February 2010 for digital download, but failed to garner success until May 2010, when it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100. It has since become her most successful single to date, reaching number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100.[11] The second single from the album, "Perfect Nightmare", was released in August 2010. "Say Hello to Goodbye" was released to pop radio on March 15 as the third single.

3rd Studio Album (2011–present)

Shontelle played at GUMBO @ The Canal Room in New York City on July 15, 2011, where she revealed news about an upcoming single and third studio album. It was also revealed that she had departed fromUniversal Motown and had joined Republic. The lead single from the upcoming album is called "Reflection" and was premiered on SoundCloud in September 2011, songs from the album are expected to be previewed at Shontelle's birthday bash .
