The Cover Girls Reunite

For the first time in over fifteen years, the Original Cover Girls met up at the 2008 Freestyle Music Awards. This was a magical meeting as Sunshine, Caroline and Angel all met in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Miami on March 25th and 26th 2008.
The film crew hired to cover the 2008 FMA's was there to capture this unforgettable moment. As Producer of the FMA's worked hard to set up the moment.
"I knew I had just one shot at this, and I didn't want to blow it." For those unaware Producer of the FMA's Latif Mercado is married to Angel "The Original CoverGirl".
"I did my best to try and time everything precise, so that we can really capture a memorable moment, Say Latif. "Angel and I along with out kids arrive on Monday the 24th and Sunshine flew in on Tuesday the 25th. I was so busy and felt so bad that I couldn't even meet up with Sunshine when she arrived. She called me while I was at the auditorium setting up. I apologized to her and told her to just relax and I will call her when I get back to the hotel. By the time I got back, it was already late and all I could do was tell her to get ready for the pre-party we were holding in the club in the hotel. I sent Angel downstairs to the club, then called the film crew and told them to begin capturing footage of Angel just hanging out, and make sure the lighting was good. I then went to Sunshine's floor to pick her up and we headed downstairs. She knew she was going to see Angel then, couldn't keep that a secret, but I didn't want them seeing eachother till everyone was in place. I stood down in the lobby with her communicating with the crew until they were ready. They went into the club and found Angel and brought her outside the club since the lighting was a little better.
Just then we were cued and I sent Sunshine around the corner!
Absolutely magical. These girls lost it when they saw eachother. The crowd gathered around began to applaud, at that point I knew we had something special. The two ladies partied that night.
The next day was show time, and I was still at the venue, going over the finishing touches with my partner Ovidio Santiago. Caroline, calls me from the hotel to tell me that she had arrived. I knew I wasn't going to make it to the hotel on time so I called my film crew and put it in their hands. I told them exactly what I wanted and left it to them. I wasn't there, but from what I heard, it was another magical moment. I was told that strangers in the lobby were crying as they watched these three Freestyle historic figures meet up after over fifteen years apart. The only thing they were ever guilty of was of having a dream and becoming one of Freestyle's most famous and female groups.
What made it even more dramatic is knowing that there has been so many Cover Girl imitators, conducted by the forces behind the name. But as many have agreed, the name is nothing without these ladies.

Official Performance Line Up for the FMA's

Mickey Garcia

Mickey Garcia was born at St.Vincent’s Hospital in New York City on October 21st. Mickey Garcia has been a disc jockey playing records at various Nightclubs throughout the New York Metropolitan area such as Copacabana, Bonds International, Studio 54, Rose­land Ballroom and New York New York. 1986 While working on B91 WKRB FM, MG produces C-Bank for Next Plateau Records creating his first international hit song titled “I WON’T STOP LOVING YOU” which was also included in the motion picture “Fast Cars”. That same year MG discovers Judy Torres and shortly after signs her over to PROFILE RECORDS. MG Produces & Writes Judy’s first 2 albums. September 1, 1987 MG forms Micmac Records, Inc. A FREESTYLE DANCE POP RECORD LABEL operating in New York City.

Lil' Suzy

Many people still wonder why they call her Lil’ Suzy. Well maybe it’s because she was performing at some of New York’s most famous clubs when she was just 6 years old, and that by the time she was eleven, her trademark hit ‘Take Me In Your Arms, had become a national Free­style phenomenon. Six albums and thou­sands of performances later, Lil’ Suzy is still at the top of her game, and while she’s back in the studio working on new music, Suzy remains in high demand with sell out concerts from coast to coast.

Delilah Cotto

Of Puerto Rican descent, Delilah Cotto was born and raised in the geographical location of Coney Island New York, USA. Delilah Cotto has made numerous appearances on television, guest starring on several programs, and in numerous commercials (including Dr. Pepper). In addition to her television work, Cotto has also appeared in eleven plays and six movies. Cotto started with some bit parts in movies like 1989's “Lean On Me,” and later moved up the scale to much meatier roles in such movies as 2002's John Leguizamo starring movie "Empire."

Ernest Thomas
Raj "What's Happening"
Everybody Hates Chris

Ernest Thomas was hailed by TV Guide as one of America’s most beloved televi­sion stars. He’s currently starring in Chris Rock’s “Everybody Hates Chris” as “Mr. Omar”. For six years he starred as “Raj” in the hit ABC comedy “What’s Happening and What’s Happening Now”. He made his dramatic debut in “Malcolm X” opposite Denzel Washington and recently starred in the soon to be released thriller “Paroled”.
In addition to being an actor, writer and manager he is the executive producer of one of the most critically acclaimed R&B albums of 2008 “UNE” sung by the new R&B sensation “UNE” on Native/Universal Records. His new single “A Change Is Gonna Come” is a remake of the Sam Cooke classic with new words inspired by Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. He has a top 10 talk show “My Pimp TV” on with television and film star Geri Reischl “Jan Brady” from The Brady Bunch and veteran comedian “Pebbles”.

DJ Ciro

He was the first disc jockey to do a live broadcast for a then Spanish Radio station called Su­per Q with the original Discoteca al Aire from Casanova’s which became a staple of Miami Radio, and later on opened doors for many other local dj’s. After Super Q a new dance station arrived in the market (Power 96 FM), and Ciro was hired as one of the original mixers along side Phil Jones and a then very young Lazaro Mendez. The famous Disco Lunch mix was created and hosted by Kramer the midday Man. During this time Ciro got involved with two of the original record pools in the area, S.E.D.A. record pool and The Florida Record Pool, which gave him the opportunity to get involved in some of the greatest dance music to come out of South Florida.

"Original CoverGirl"

No other group in the history of Free­style has been imitated more than The Cover Girls, but regardless of the fact, without the distinctive sound of Angel (OCG), Hits such as Show Me, Because Of You and My Heart Skips A Beat, would have lacked that main ingredient…personality! An ingredient that set The Cover Girls apart from the many other girl groups at the time. Today, Angel continues to perform throughout the country, and while she has experienced many successful recordings as a solo artist, she enjoys performing her classics just as much as her fans enjoy hearing them.

Freestyle Evolution

Emerging out of the deep depths of space from a musical dimension, light years away, comes Freestyle Evolution, the pioneers and legends of Electro-Funk-Hip Hop which is the synthesis that spawned a new genre of music today best known as “Freestyle”. This form of music acquired its title and identity from the group’s original name “Freestyle”. These forefathers of this genre, gained worldwide acclaim with their classic dance hits “Don’t Stop the Rock” and “It’s Automatic”. Converting into believers many in­dustry skeptics who once shunned the hi-tech style of music. Now Freestyle Evolution returns on a mission to once again, inundate airwaves and dance floors throughout the universe.

K7 / T.K.A.

TKA originally consisted of Tony, Kayel, Ralph “Aby” Cruz, Ray SPIDER Jackson and Linda “La INDIA” Cabal­lero, but eventually Aby, India & Spider all left and were replaced by Angel Vasquez. Their first single was “One Way Love” which was a ma­jor hit among the Latin club community in New York, “Scars Of Love”, “Tears May Fall”, and “Come Get My Love” followed. TKA released their biggest hits in 1991, “Louder Than Love”, “Give Your Love To Me” and “Ma­ria”, which ironically proved to be their biggest hit, then they split up. Following the split, the members of TKA went on to pursue independent interests. Kayel once again paired with Joey Gardner to record a solo album titled Swing Batta Swing under the name K7. K7 & the swing kids became the new Latin-flavored hip-hop dance unit from Spanish Harlem, New York & The Bronx.

Sweet Sensation

Originally named “Sweet Temptation”, this group had their first 1986 hit single “Hooked On You” on Next Plateau Records, & was then told by The Temp­tation’s management that they could not use the name. So they changed it to Sweet Sensation & signed to Atlantic/Atco Records. In 1988, their full-length album “Take It While It’s Hot” was released. Five out of the 8 cuts on the album were hit singles. The original members were Betty Dee, Margie Fernandez, & her sister Mari, who appeared on the first photo-cover version of the “Take It While It’s Hot” album. Sheila Vega replaced Mari in 1989, & the album was then re-re­leased with a new photo featuring Sheila. Sweet Sensation were probably the most Latin influenced of the girl-group Dance/Free­style acts of their time.

Johnny O

Born in Brooklyn, New York Johnny O had a fascination with music, and this fascination would one day take him to achieve a dream that has left remarkable value and recognition in today’s music industry. The year was 1988, in Brook­lyn, where Johnny O’s talent was discovered. “Fantasy Girl” was originally written for a friend that had been diagnosed with cancer and out of that a Billboard chart buster was born. “Fantasy Girl” has open doors and has elevated Johnny “O” to celebrity status internationally. Since then he has climbed the Billboard Hot 100 charts with chartbuster hits like Highways of Love and Dream boy/Dream Girl.

Company B

Who could forget the 3 girls from Miami with their massive international club hit “Fasci­nated”. Released in 1986 and charted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music/Club Play for 6 weeks. The original line up was: Charlotte McKinnon, Su­san Johnson and Lori L. Their self-titled album was released on Atlantic Records which included hits “Full Circle” (Number 5), “Perfect Lover” (Number 12) and “Jam on Me”. Company B started performing again, kick­ing off the ‘Freestyle Explosion’ concert in Miami. The current line up consists of original members Charlotte McKinnon, Susan Gonzalez and new member Rachel Leslie. These ladies are as sexy as ever and their show is HOT!


Born to a Dominican mother and Cuban father and raised in Miami, Coro began singing at age 8, joining both the choir and drama club early. By 1985, he was beginning to make strides in his career with roles in television commer­cials and three guest spots on Miami Vice. While working on a demo with dance music producer Tolga, Coro was introduced to pop/dance artist Stevie B. Coro began working as a background vocalist and dancer on Stevies’s first tour. Once the tour ended, Coro moved to New York where he auditioned for producer Zahid Tariq. The song he was asked to sing was “Where Are You Tonight”. “Where Are You Tonight” became a huge hit in many mainstream markets around the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., and then came “Can’t Let You Go”, “Fall­en Angel”, and “Missing You” which were released on Charisma/Virgin Records on his self-titled album in 1992.

Debbie Deb

At just 16 years old, she was “dis­covered” at a North Miami record store. The Brooklyn, New York born, and North Miami Beach raised vocal­ist spent much of her youth making her own “vocals only” cassettes. A chance meeting with producer Pretty Tony, told Debbie he liked the way she talked and asked if she could sing and the answer was an unequivocal YES! The day following the record store meeting with Tony, she traveled to his studio. Upon entering the studio, the music track for “When I Hear Music” was blaring from the studio speakers. Tony and Deb ended up writing the lyrics to “When I Hear Music”, and in a matter of hours, had the vocal tracks down. Deb, now a resident of the Philadelphia Pennsylvania area, finds herself frequently back on stage with many other freestyle artist.

Erotic Exotic

Originally the backing band for the Arista girl group “Expose”, Miami based Erotic Exotic were at the forefront of the 80’s dance movement known as Freestyle. Their signing to Atlantic Records heralded an unprecedented period in the post Disco era reviving the Dance music scene in America. Erotic Exotic stood apart from many of their peers in that they were a self contained band of actual musicians as opposed to the producer driven entities common during the period. Their tours in the U.S. and abroad always earned rave reviews and the band seemed destined for superstardom. Tragically the future of the band was sidetracked by the death of their lead singer Eric Tallman.Their hits are still played in strong rotation at pop radio, especially in Texas, California, Florida, New York, Europe and Miami.

Rockell feat Joe Zangie

In the late 1990s, Rockell had ma­jor dance hits with the songs “In A Dream,” “When I’m Gone,” and “Can’t We Try” (a duet with Collage and remake of the Dan Hill and Vonda Shepard 1987 hit song). All of these tracks appeared on her 1998 debut album entitled What Are You Lookin’ At?. She released a second album, Instant Pleasure, in 2000. “Instant Pleasure” included the single “What U Did 2 Me” which made 101 pop in 2001. Her best charting success is in Canada, where she is still active performing shows at clubs. Her debut single “I Fell in love” distributed by the then BMG Canada hit 1 on the Canadian Singles Chart while the follow-up mega hit “In a Dream” was at 6 and is still a dance club anthem and a favor­ite amongst freestyle music enthusiasts nationwide.

Brenda K. Starr

She started her career by making a demo of Stacy Lattisaw’s “Love On A Two Way Street”. She started hanging out in places where she felt someone was bound to hear her. In the early 80’s, Brenda then helped out picking up cups at a local roller skat­ing rink in NYC, where she bumped into Harry Bellafonte. At the age of 18, she was signed to Mirage Records, & released her 1985 debut album “I WANT YOUR LOVE”, which includ­ed the Freestyle classic “Pickin’ Up Pieces”, as well as “Suspicion”. Brenda later was signed to MCA Records, and shortly after released her 2nd album in 1987 simply titled “BRENDA K. STARR”. This album turned Brenda into an international star. The album contained the singles “What You See Is What You Get”, “Breakfast In Bed”, and Billboards Top-20 hit “I Still Believe”.

"The Future Of Freestyle"


Hector “Sito” Santiago and Jenaro “Jay” Vadell, the duo known collectively as PAIN, got their first start on the now defunct Tazmania Records, releasing the singles “I FEEL IT IN MY HEART”, I’M THE ONE TO BLAME”, “IT COULD HAVE BEEN LOVE” and many others on the label’s popular Tazmania Freestyle series. The duo has recently jumped back full force onto the freestyle scene writing, produc­ing, and releasing their first full length CD “NO MORE TOMOR­ROW”. The CD showcases the duo’s songwriting abilities as well as their unique vocal style. PAIN hopes to help usher in a new era where freestyle music will be accepted on a mainstream level and recognized as the true art form it is.

So Who's Performing At The 2008 Freestyle Music Awards?

The initial intentions were to have "No" artist perform at this event, but rather have other "Freestyle Themed" entertainment that all the artist could enjoy. A sort of tribute to their own success and achievements.There were more than enough really cool presentations that would easily fill the night. But then the phones started ringing, mostly from managers who saw a rare opportunity for their artists (That's why they're managers). They knew, whether this event succeeded or failed, it would still become a part of history and they wanted their artists to be involved. Our promoter Ovidio Santiago knew the event would have a better chance with actual performances and expressed his opinion to Latif who finally agreed that yes, it would be an important contribution to the event. Latif contacted many of the managers that expressed interest in having their acts perform. He told them how grateful he was that they wanted to do this, but he had one concern. Latif explained that he in no way wanted the Freestyle Awards to resemble your typical Freestyle concert. One of the ways he wanted to get this across to them was by encouraging them to perform 'New Material". You see, as a Booking Agent, Latif was always instructed by his promoter clients to make sure the artist "Does Not" Perform any new material, only the classics! Well what's he to say, the promoters are paying the artist and therefore should have the right to request what he does or doesn't want performed, but it’s up to the artist whether or not to agree. A sticky situation for an agent who's also a manager and understands the importance of artist performing their new stuff. Traditional Radio doesn't support Freestyle the way it use to, so how does an artist expose their new music aside from posting it on myspace? As risky as it might be and the fact that haters and competitors are going to use it against them, Latif is putting his trust into his artist and their managers encouraging them to perform their new music. Latif says, "Artist have been on tour with each other for many years, and have seen each other's performances over and over again. By allowing acts to perform new material lets the fellow artist to also be entertained along with the rest of the fans." Aside from just new material, Latif spoke with the artist and their managers and expressed to them his desire to not just hear their new stuff, but for them to go out on a limb. Show the artistic side that they are discouraged from showing at other events. Latif says, “My hopes are that, there will be prominent people in the audience that will see these acts after so many years, and be blown away” possibly opening new doors for all involved.

and the nominees are....

Click The Button Above

So, the Vote Now button is up! But what is this vote button actually for? Well, for those who aren't aware, there are a lot of Freestyle Artist in the country. From Miami to Los Angeles, New York to Dallas, while many had thought Freestyle was long gone, new artist continued to hit the scene year after year.
Many people consider Freestyle an 80's genre, and while it might have started in the 80's it in no way stopped in the 80's. Artist such as Lil' Suzy, Rockell and Angelina proved that there was still a viable market for Freestyle.
Basically the Vote Now button is there to make sure that the Board does not overlook anyone, regardless of their success. Many long forgotten names have been pouring into the database, making the decissions even harder as each day goes by.
Of course as much as we feel, so many people do derserve to an award, we all know that that just can't happen. But remember, this is going to be an annual award, and every year new people are going to be honored.
We do however need the support of all. From artist and writers, producers and managers, this event is for you and it is important that you do all you can to be there.
Just because the event is being held in Miami Florida, doesn't mean that it is a Miami event. We are already speaking to venues around the country about possibly bring the Freestyle Music Awards to their their in the future.
To make sure that we were being fair to the entire Freestyle market. The initial promotions have been via the internet only. Because of the low price of the tickets we wanted to make sure that everyone had and equal amount of time to purchase tickets. Direct promotions to the Miami area will begin shorty, so please rush and purchase your tickets now!

Wednesday, February 6, 2008


Over the last few years, merchandising has become an important move for the Freestyle industry. Not only as a way for artist to generate extra revenue at their shows, but more importantly, as a tool to help preserve the name and likeness of the artist in the minds of their fans once the event is over.

Like all genres of music, true fans want to own a part of it. Whether it be a Tee Shirt, Cap, CD or just an autograph, memoribilia plays a major role in the whole Freestyle experience. For years, long lines have formed at the back of club and concert venues as fans waited patiently for the opportunity to get an autographed photo of their favorite Freestyle artist. While a few of our pioneers have been doing this for years, Freestyle merchandising has now become a huge necessasity for Freestyle's eco-system, and now artist and road managers can be seen lugging huge boxes of product around the country.

Years ago, promoters would negotiate a sort of licencing deal, that would allow them to manufacture and sell merchandise baring the name and image of the featured artist. Some promoters would do so without consent. Either way, artist would appreciate the fact that the promoter thought high enough about them to take that sort of risk that they would at times opt out of any monetary benefits to them.

Nowadays, merchandise has become the norm, and those not taking advantage of it are losing out on a great opportunity to promote themselves and get paid while doing so. Many venues, require that a small percentage, usually 20% of the proceeds be given back to the house, which is understandable. But as promoters see the long lines, they too want in on the action. For the Freestyle Music Awards, we are currently negotiating with the Miami-Dade Auditorium to reconsider their merchandise policy as much as they can, while we have already convinced the promoters to do the same.

We are encouraging all involved to bring along with them, their merchandise and make it available for sale at the awards. We are doing all we can to help accomodate what we hope to become Freestyle's Largest market place, and with the ticket prices at just $35.00, fans should have plenty of extra money to buy your product.

A Freestyle Spectacular

After securing the Orchestra, another problem would arise. What in the world can we use to complement a forty piece orchestra? Latif's method of throwing in the most absurd and off the wall ideas, pushed the brainstorming phone session between he and Ovidio into the wee hours, until both men decided to call it a night and continue the next day.

Latif says "If you go to sleep with a problem on your mind, you'll wake up with the solution." The difference with Latif is, once he finds the solution, he can't go back to sleep. By 3am He was up researching the net for a company that specializes in Laser Light productions.

After doing a thorough search and consulting with at least a dozen companies, he came across one out of Los Angeles California called DayStar and quickly bonded with one of their reps.

The beauty was not just the fact that they were among the top in their field, but better yet, they were pretty knowledgable of the Freestyle industry. Latif says that when you have limited resources, that it's important to find people who are as passionate about a project as you are.

So, DayStar was contracted with a price tag just as sophisticated as the show they promise to create. Latif is currently designing the presentation along with one of their execs, Jon Robertson, and I'll tell you this, it is going to be unlike anything else you've ever seen.

Could we have picked a better time?

Who remembers when the Winter Music Conference was all Freestyle? When you walked around the pool side of the then Fontaine Bleau Hotel and met up with the entire Freestyle community. From artist new and old, producers, writers, promoters, agents, labels, radio stations and DJs, it was a very exciting time. We tried this year to possibly bring Freestyle back to the WMC but we were just a bit late, so we will have to sit this one out.

We contacted the people who run the WMC and told them our idea, and even though their conference has been very successful without Freestyle, they did consider it and even offered us to join some of the already established panels. We had to decline for now, because the Awards were going to take up a lot of time and energy. next year the chances for us to re-start a Freestyle Panel looks really good. People who are not directly involved in the market really don't have a clue as to how much we have accomplished over the last few years, but that's cool, we have to just keep going, soon they will see.

We couldn't have picked a better time to hold our Freestyle Music Awards, and of course we couldn't have picked a better location. Who doesn't like to be in Florida? This year the WMC is expecting over 4,000 attendees from all over the world. Does anyone understand what that could do for the market? Freestyle is known throughout the world, from Japan to Germany, the UK to South America. The problem is, we have been out of sight, and therefore, out of mind.
In the last couple of years we have seen so many acts return to the scene. Concerts have been held all over the country and the fans are reawakening to a music that they thought was long gone.

To all those involved in Freestyle, from artist to fans, friends and foes, it very important that you make it a point to attend this important and historical event. The doors are open to everyone. it's time for all of us to wake up and for some of us to grow up and do what needs to be done for this market.

There is going to come a time when all Freestyle will be to us are a bunch of stories that we will tell out grandchildren. Let's not have any regrets, this will probably be one of the last chances we will have to do something positive for this market. We aren't getting any younger and the past has hurt many of us pretty bad. We have already obligated ourselves to this event for three years and hope to continue for many years after.

March 26th 2008 at the Miami-Dade Auditorium, come check out the Freestyle Music Awards, we'll be looking for you!

Get Your Tickets Now!!!

With ticket prices at just $35.00... You better hurry!

They said we were crazy, but actually keeping the price as reasonable as we can is probably one of the best ideas for this event. The Freestyle market didn't make it to where it's at just because of the artist. The fans had a lot to do with it, a whole lot, and to show our appreciation, we are keeping the price of these tickets very very low.

The front rows of course will be reserved for V.I.P., but if you get there early enough there is a chance that you might end up sitting behind your favorite Freestyle artist, producer or exec.

If this event is something you'll like to attend, my advise to you would be, "Get your tickets as soon as you read this", then book your hotel, then your flight if you are flying. Hey the worst case is, you can't make it, you'll be out of a measly $35.00

Click the "TicketMaster" logo above and secure your seat for this historical night in Miami.

Orchestra Miami goes Freestyle!

When was the last time you heard your favorite Freestyle songs composed, conducted and performed by a professional orchestra? Well when Freestyle Awards Producer Latif Mercado thought of putting together the first ever Freestyle Music Awards, he knew it had to be more than just different, it had to be spectacular. It had to represent Freestyle in a light unheard and unseen of ever before. After careful thought, Latif had an idea that he was sure would set this event apart from every other, and with the financial backing of Executive Producer Lily Bolden of Bolden Corporation and Miami's Power Promoter Ovidio Santiago, famous for his popular Miami concerts, Latif knew that his vision could easily become a reality.
When he contacted Lily and Ovidio about his idea, Lily simply said, "I'll call you back in a minute". An hour later she calls back and says, "Okay baby, we have the Miami Symphony Orchestra"!

The Award

Original Trophy Design Sketch 1
We wanted a trophy that would represent Freestyle today. A typical stock trophy wouldn't do. We wanted to show the Freestyle Market that we cared enough about it to have something personally designed.
The La' logo might seem a bit bias, but it represents an organization that has been working endlessly to revitalize the Freestyle market.

Original Trophy Design Sketch 2
Coming up with a design, even one as simple as this took a lot of thought. Big shout out to our manufacturing designer Ardy. We wanted something that would give us the most quality for our money with plenty of room for up-grade. This design seemed to work. To those just looking at it for the first time, might not see the bigger picture, but the plan here is for this same exact trophy to be up-graded each and every year. We have already come up with 10 impressive up-grades that will have people desiring to win it at every awards ceremony.
From add-on images, twisted metals and technology that allows us to burn - color the steel, be prepared to see this simple award gradually transform into a beautiful art piece that will sit proudly in the homes of many of your favorite Freestyle Artist. Producers, etc...

Original Trophy 2008 Version
Simply beautiful. Polished stainless steel with a solid wooden base. The plate that will have the recipient's name engraved on it will be placed around the base, and all awards will come with it's own storage box available after the event.
