When you are a star on a reality television series you should always use that platform to help boost your brand and career.
That is exactly what Demetria McKinney has done as a recurring cast member on Bravo’s hit show Real Housewives of Atlanta. The actress of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne fame has used this opportunity to debut her musical talents to the masses. Her songs “100″ featuring Da Brat and “Trade It All” have received exposure while on the show.
All of her hard work has paid off! McKinney has landed herself a music deal with eOne Records! She released this statement via eOne:
“This is a dream come true for me. I’m so grateful to eOne, my team and Bravo TV for giving me the platform to share my music which has now culminated into me joining eOne. I look forward to my upcoming tours with R. Kelly and Funkfest, as well as releasing some great music this summer.”
A couple of her RHOA co-stars congratulated her on her new venture.
This is the correct way to bring your talents to light when participating in reality tv. You don’t have to be ratchet all the time. Even though a little drama came Demetria’s way, she kept her focus and it has paid off! You go girl!
Congrats to Demetria on her new deal!
