There’s a light at the end of the tunnel for singer Keri Hilson who was blacklisted in the music industry by Beyonce.
Wilhelmina Models has signed Hilson to an artist management contract, the firm’s PR company announced today. The contract calls for Wilhelmina Models to “explore and develop fashion and beauty endorsement, editorial and licensing opportunities for the 5’9” chart-topping beauty.”
This is good news for the gorgeous singer, who made the mistake of dissing Beyonce on a track that was never officially released.
Unlike struggling mixtape artist K. Michelle, Keri’s statuesque physique will keep her in high demand long after her recording career is over.
From a press release:
Wilhelmina International, Inc., one of the most prominent model and celebrity agencies in the fashion and beauty industrieswith offices in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, announced today the representation of R&B/Pop “Pretty Girl,” Keri Hilson, the award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, and philanthropist. The Wilhelmina team will explore and develop fashion and beauty endorsement, editorial and licensing opportunities for the 5’9” chart-topping beauty, who is currently recording her third studio album.
Keri Hilson blasted onto the music scene with the global #1 hit “The Way I Are,” and has since established herself as not only a mainstay, GRAMMY nominated recording artist and songwriter, but an icon for female empowerment as well. In addition to being named the face of Avon’s Imari fragrance in 2011, Keri’s most recent offering, the critically acclaimed “No Boys Allowed” , featuring the platinum hit single “Pretty Girl Rock” was a deeply personal album designed to empower women. Hilson is also dedicated to charity work, including most recently serving as ambassador to the MTV Staying Alive foundation to raise awareness of HIV and AIDs and Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Campaign to combat childhood obesity.
