Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 11, 2014

Summer SHINE 2014 will occur at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, Fla., July 1-6. The conference will host a community of actors, models, singers, dancers and comedians, along with over 70 top VIPs, agents and casting directors from around the country. One of the AMTC Guest Stars scheduled is rising artist, Kêta Jo.

"Capitol's latest signing Kêta opens the Sam Smith show. Impressed. Only 16 years old. Big sounds. Something's brewing.” Head of Pop/Dance Programming at Beats Music, Arjan Writes, reports about AMTC grad, Kêta Jo. This is just one of many exciting reviews Kêta received while opening for UK chart-topping artist, Sam Smith, on his West Coast tour.

Kêta attended SHINE the Summer of 2012. She auditioned for the organization after her grandmother saw an Actors, Models and Talent for Christ billboard. Fast forward just two years later: Kêta signed with Evolve/Capitol Records, has released an album with 10 original songs called Generation Call and made her debut opening for Sam Smith’s West Coast tour. She speaks about her experience with AMTC, “The community of SHINE, and the whole experience was like Heaven on earth. Being surrounded by so many people on fire for Christ was amazing.”

This July, Kêta is releasing a debut EP featuring her lead single, “Wooden Horses.” According to her website, she has written the EP in collaboration with Songwriter/Producer Mike Mac (worked with Sean Kingston and Iyaz), and L.A.-based Songwriter/Guitarist, Jordan Baum. The song is being released to hit radio in July, and Keta has plans to open for a Capitol Records artist on their North American tour in August.

Big things are in store for Kêta. To listen to her unique and fresh genre of music, check out her SoundCloud and Twitter. She gives encouraging advice to fellow performers, “Eventually God’s Will will be done. It’s all in His hands and if it’s where you belong, it will happen.”
