A-list entertainers, producers and industry executives headline faith-based entertainment conference

August 20-22, 2009 Millennium Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles

Releve' Entertainment is proud to announce an outstanding line up of speakers and presenters for the first annual THE MERGE SUMMIT, to be held in Los Angeles, CA, August 20-22, 2009 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.

A 3-day conference event designed to merge the sacred and the secular by bridging the gap between ministry and entertainment, THE MERGE SUMMIT was developed to provide a platform for men and women of faith to interface, glean from and partner with executives, artists, and talent in the entertainment industry.

Confirmed Presenters include Mary Mary, Suzanne DePasse, Debra Langford, Rushion McDonald, Felicia D. Henderson Regina King, Tasha Smith, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Vivica A. Fox, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, Warryn Campbell, "Big Jon" Platt, ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Vicki Mack-Lataillade, and Robi Reed, the event's Co-Chair, among many others.

"This is a way in which to pay it forward by giving opportunities to those who are aspiring in the areas of arts and entertainment. Alongside their aspirations to enter into the business, the ultimate hope is that attendees will possess a heart and desire to impact Hollywood for the kingdom of God", commented Dr. Holly Carter, President and CEO of Releve' Entertainment and Founder/Chair of THE MERGE SUMMIT.

The multifaceted program will cover the spectrum of music, television, film, content, development, production, and management, with both general and focused breakout sessions designed to educate and empower attendees in their respective fields. The SUMMIT lineup will also include keynote addresses, plenary presentations, and interactive panel discussions. Throughout the event, attendees will have the opportunity to exchange and interact with actors, directors, producers, writers, and industry executives. These experts will share insights, give feedback and expertise, as well as lend inspiration for the individual journey.

The event will kick-off on Thursday evening with OPENING NIGHT AT THE MERGE, a reception featuring presentations by Pastor Jamal Bryant and Donnie McClurkin. There will also be a talent showcase, hosted by Hezekiah Walker, on Friday evening and then, on Saturday afternoon, "An Inspiring Moment" with Pastor Debra B. Morton, our keynote address of the afternoon luncheon.

The weekend of events will culminate at 7pm Saturday evening with THE MERGE Concert, a music celebration featuring performances by gospel sensations Deitrick Haddon and Kierra "Kiki" Sheard, along with IROCC Williams, Bill Moss, Jr., and other special guests.
