Attention, Attention, The Honorable “Marvelous” Marvin L. McIntyre, Ambassador of Artist Development and founder of the world renowned Marvelous Enterprises/Artist Development Center located in Atlanta, Georgia has spun his magic wand once again in forming what could soon become the new toast of the music industry, “Hi-RiZ”. Consisting of group members Lakilah B. Thomas a/k/a “Bobi” (Atlanta, GA), Victorya Langford a/k/a “Hip-Hop” (Birmingham, AL), Monique Ivana Colson a/k/a “Ivana” (The Philippines) and Sedne Leilani-Marnai Lacy a/k/a “Sedne” (Cypress, TX), form one of the most talented and uniquely original groups to hit the industry in over two decades.

Discovered by Marvelous Marvin the Legendary Entertainment Impresario who has work with and consulted the careers of countless multi-platinum superstars such as New Edition, Boyz II Men, KANDI (RHOA), Cash Money Millionaires, T.I., Pink, Monica, TLC, Ciara, Keri Hilson, Lloyd and Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, is the visionary behind this super explosive group.

Daring to be different “Hi-RiZ” is made up of four extremely gifted artists who all have previous experience as either a solo artist or lead of a group which only adds to their already off the charts list of fire power attributes. Blending Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, and Soul music like never before along with an unmatched stage show are the chief selling points for the new “it” girl group of Generation Next. In “Hip-Hop”, you have a one of kind MC and dancer with classic storytelling rhymes, while “Sedne” is the ultimate young sassy soul singer with pop appeal and powerful voice. Then there’s “Bobi” whose love for modeling and designing fashion shines through in her vivid singing of the finer things in life, and last but certainly not least is “Ivana” whose love for Ballads and Timeless music adds the perfect dose of soul to the talented foursome. Although merged into a super group by their discoverer and mentor, “Hi-RiZ” dispels any notion that a group “put together” can’t be as successful as those that have been together for years by possessing a level of maturity, teamwork, and unselfishness seldom found in groups that have been together three times as long.

Inspired by music stalwarts Beyoncé, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keyes, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, TLC, Destiny’s Child and Mariah Carey represents the level of success sought by “Hi-RiZ”. With the group consisting of one 17 year-old, two 18 year olds & one 19 year old, “Hi-RiZ” is able to connect with teens their age, girls much younger and even grown women using song concepts relatable to females of all ages but also relatable to males. Blessed to all be honor students is what makes “Hi-RiZ” the ideal role models for young girls worldwide who are in search of positive guidance. With the release of their much heralded first single “Stix and Stones” written by writing sensation Phylicia “PenGame” Goings and Produced By Gawain “G2” Bracy II is tearing up the streets, clubs, and internet. “Hi-RiZ” also recorded a club banger “Shootin Off” that was written by Doramus “D-Ray” Roberts and produced and co-written by Grammy Award Winning Producer Blac Elvis who won the Grammy for producing and co-writing Beyoncé’s song “Ego”, Blac Elvis has also worked with Fergie, Pussy Cat Dolls, Ludacris, Kelly Rowland, Ciara etc.“M.I.L.E.” by Grammy Award Winning Producer Jon Jon “Traxx” Webb (Beyoncé’s song “Déjà Vu”)

Tom Joyner’s Family Reunion held annually in Orlando FL. “Hi-RiZ” recently had the honor of being the only female group in the world to perform both on the “BET’s – Closer to My Dream Tour “which featured Mindless Behavior, Diggy Simmons, & on “The Scream Tour – Next Generation” with Diggy Simmons, Jacob Latimore & Mindless Behavior. “Hi-RiZ” is one of the featured acts in the Feb 2012 Word Up Magazine, “Hot 107.9 Radio – Bullying Is Not Hot Tour” as well as performing in January 2012 in Atlanta, GA as part of the “Hot 107.9 – Bullying Is Not Hot Concert” with Mindless Behavior. “Hi-RiZ” also performed at V103’s “For Sisters Only” in Atlanta September 2011. “Hi-RiZ” performed in July and August with Mindless Behavior and Jacob Latimore on the “#1 Girl Tour” as well as on “The Scream Tour” in Orlando at The Tom Joyner Family Reunion. “Hi-RiZ” also was a featured Artist on the 2012 “BET College Tour”.
