The evening will also include an open mic for emerging Black talent, where artists will have a chance to flex their skills, and receive live industry insight and feedback by a panel of Black music industry professionals, who will share their own experiences navigating the industry as independent artists.The panel includes K-Riz, up-and-coming R&B singer LATISHA, vocalist and beatmaker Lowkita, and R&B crooner Ethan Cybril.

Four emerging artists have also been selected to join the Black Music Month lineup. The Open Mic will feature Cadent MistTeeInTheAm, E.N.I, and Phrekwency.
