On Sunday, April 15, 2007, hip hop artist Big Lou will be performing at the second largest hip hop summit in the country; the 2007 A&R Power Summit hosted by Shady Records (hip hop / rap artist and producer Eminem's record label) and Urban Threshold Enterprises.

All major hip hop, rap and urban record labels such as Island/Def Jams, Universal, Atlantic, Shady, Motown, Interscope, J. Records, Geffen, Warner Bros., and Bad Boy will be in attendance as the hip hop artist Big Lou performs on the main stage Sunday night.

Big Lou was also invited to be a part of a question and answer panel during the day. Lou will be interviewed by A & R representatives from every major record label, reporters from major hip hop magazines and internet sources, and by a few well known DJs. He was invited to join the panel to discuss how he made his amazing rise in the rap industry.

The A & R Power Summit started four years ago. The purpose behind the conference is to offer rising talent an opportunity to get their music heard, and to gain valuable information and feedback from some of the industry's top leaders. The Summit brings together unsigned artists, independent record labels, publishers, managers, fashion executives, film makers, producers, internet companies, distributors, booking agents, journalists, retailers, songwriters, and more. The A & R Power Summit is a music conference, as well as an informational seminar, and an entertainment showcase.

"This invitation is huge," stated Frank Urban, Big Lou's manager. "This is the biggest hip hop summit in the Northeast part of the U.S. All major record labels and executives will be in attendance. The exposure Big Lou is about to get is unthinkable and unheard of for such a new artist. Lou was invited to participate on the panel because of his amazing and quick rise in the industry. By the end of this Summit, every A & R representative, every major record label, and everyone in the hip hop industry will know Big Lou and his music. This is a major break for Lou's career, and it's only the beginning."
