President/CEO of South Central News
 
 
 
The Fan Club is an excellent and unique opportunity for those who have tried to get into the music industry and have been rejected. It also has a unique way of allowing the Artist to get exposure; an opportunity that they would not normally be able to get in the current entertainment industry. 
 
It offers a fresh breath of air for those who would like to obtain an opportunity to be self promoted, without the restraints and restrictions of the promoters. There is truly an opportunity for everyone, fan and artist alike.  
 
I highly recommend that any artist with a clean heart let the power of The Fan Club International work for you. Dreams do come true. I would like to give my special thanks to the President and CEO, Rickie G. Tedford Sr. and the exceptional team that he has assembled for their accomplishments they’ve made to make this to happen. “Unique, unique, unique is what it is”.
