Last night, February 1, Black History Month starting with a special Philadelphia announcement. Philadelphia once again named their Creative Ambassadors. Philly 360, an African-American marketing campaign launched in February 2009 as a way to lure the younger tech-savvy traveler to our exciting city. To be honest, what better way to spread the good word than by Philadelphians themselves. They don't have to be born in Philly, but there does have to be a tie-in.
Philly 360 Creative Ambassadors are trendsetters in their fields who help shape Philly as a major hotspot and build buzz around the city. This year they picked a group of Philly's hottest musicians, DJs, producers, dancers, entrepreneurs and more. One thing I do appreciate is when African-Americans and Latinos work together instead of against each other or separately. Which is why I'm happy to see Grammy-nominated duo Carvin & Ivan were chosen as ambassadors. They've written/produced some of the most popular R&B music out there including hits for Musiq Soulchild, Chris Brown, Jazmyn Sullivan
