Ray J. Tours Local High Schools in Search of Talent

Apr 26, 2005 R&B singer Ray J has taken to the road in search of local talent at high schools nationwide. The singer began his high school tour on April 4th in Birmingham, Alabama and will wind up in Tulsa, Oklahoma on the 28th. During the course of the 24 days, Ray J will be visiting thirteen schools, where he will conduct question and answer sessions with students and view a student talent forum consisting of two to four pre- selected students. Ray J will offer the performers constructive feedback and choose one student's material to be sent to Knockout Entertainment and Sanctuary Records for the labels to listen to. Ray J's support of young performers speaks to his own involvement in the music industry at a young age. In fact, by the age of 15 Ray J. had already founded his own independent label, Knockout Entertainment.

The high school tour comes in preparation for Ray J's latest album, Raydiation, which is scheduled to hit stores on June 28th and features lead singles "Quit Actin" with R. Kelly and "Keep Sweatin" with Fat Joe. On the album, Ray J embraces his talent as a vocalist like never before. "I really wasn't enjoying singing before, but now I'm in a zone where, whatever I experience, I can sing about it, and people can relate to it. I made a point to get in there and sing these songs and, I want people to feel me." Ray J will be making radio and TV appearances while making his way across the country, and he is currently featured on iTunes R&B page, where "Quit Actin" featuring R. Kelly is available for download.
