The next generation of creative professionals is coming to your screen this Thursday as LARS Live showcases their best talent. The Los Angeles Recording School is hosting a Live event in which students show off the skills they’ve learned during their time at the school. Clayton Guiltner and his Event Management students put together performances to raise awareness of mental health through a virtual wellness check.
Within one month, the class put together 5 amazing performances featuring singers, rappers, and directors. Clayton Guiltner, writer and director of The Prevalence, supports his students in moving their career forward and hopes that this event will give them the experience and motivation they need to stay creative during COVID. “During COVID, it’s important for all of our students, faculty, and staff to feel a sense of accomplishment in the work that we are doing.” He went on to mention that he wants to “see the show be a success so that everyone feels like [they] accomplished something together in a month”. As classes remain online indefinitely, students now more than ever are looking for a creative release. This event raising mental health awareness comes just in time for those struggling with moving their career forward or finding the motivation to keep creating. With such a tough topic, the show comes at the perfect time with a timely message. LARS Live opened its platform to students looking to make a difference using their talents. New Celebrity was lucky enough to sit down with each incredible act to find out more about their brand, passions, and goals.
Jenae Ailia AKA “LEMON” is a 19 year old musician who is working towards becoming an established producer. By combining their natural love of experimentation and the skills they have learned at LARS, they have found a style within Jazz, R&B, and Hip-Hop. However, they aim to become genre-less as they grow their brand. We hope to get a taste of this with their new song “Rose Quartz” which will be released on Valentine’s Day. Find out more about Jenae Ailia’s spiritual connections to their music on Thursday, January 28th!

Timothy Bracken is a musician who has been in the business since 2003! His love of music has opened him up to learning how to play the drums, guitar, and bass. On his way to a Bachelor’s degree in Audio Production, Timothy is learning much more about the method of audio production, even creating a socially-distanced album. We hope to hear more about the album soon! Until then, Timothy will be performing “In the Back of My Mind” an older song from his album for LARS Live. You can find his music on Bandcamp before you catch up with his next feature on Thursday, January 28th!
New Celebrity Entertainment is honored to be collaborating with LARS Live’s Wellness Check. As great as social media can be for building a brand and promoting yourself, it is very important to be aware of the dangers of social media. Be careful not to let what others say behind a screen affect you, avoid living up to the social media lifestyle because it doesn’t exist, and when you think your screen time is getting a little high lately- it’s time to delete some apps. Take some advice from our past influencers who have important tips to keeping a healthy mental state while being in the spotlight.
Later this week, you will find out how our LARS Live Featured Acts overcome their mental roadblocks, how they built their brand, and continue to create. Don’t miss their stellar acts on Thursday, January 28th at 6 pm, streamed LIVE on Facebook and Twitch.
