Music label Ca$h Money Records decided to throw a private event, together with SwaG ShaQ, in Amsterdam, to introduce three of their new signed artists. The second artist I got a chance to talk to, is Chris Richardson. This Virginia Beach native got a chance to show his talents when he reached the top five on the sixth season of American Idol. This got him in a spot where he caught the attention of Cash Money Records, who just had to sign him.
About the signing, label co-founder Bryan “Baby” Williams aka Birdman excitedly comments, “The second I heard Chris sing, I knew he was a star. Talented beyond belief, he’s got a voice that transcends boundaries, and he’s an amazing addition to our expanding team. Watch out because this kid’s got real heart and soul”.
Chris talks about how after being in the music industry for 15 years already, this opportunity puts him in a place where he feels he can really develop as an artist.
