Things were hot in Miami last night as the iconic brand Remy Martin celebrated the launch of its “Circle of Centaurs”. The celebration was held at a private tea room in the East hotel in Brickell. The event was star studded and included music industry stars such as Gloria and Emilio Estefan along with their daughter Emily. Rapper Flo Rida made an appearance, as well as, Latin Grammy nominated artist, Manuel Medrano. Latin TV stars were also in attendance such as Gabriel Coronel and Roger Borges.
The “Circle of Centaurs” is a new initiative started by Remy Martin this year. The program is actually an extension of the Remy Martin’s One Life/Live Them campaign which celebrates individuals who are multi-talented. The “Circle of Centaurs” will focus more on giving one individual the opportunity to be mentored by an individual who has shown their ability to explore their many different talents. The purpose of the program is to seek out individuals who wish to explore their many talents that they possess. This mentorship is the first in the series that Remy Martin has planned, and each initiative will feature a different mentor.
The first mentor in the program is actress, singer, and photographer Jackie Cruz. Other mentors scheduled to participate in the “Circle of Centaurs” are Samantha Barks and Kevin Poon. Samantha is an actress, singer, and a banker; while Kevin is an entrepreneur, tastemaker, event organizer, and DJ.
Jackie is most known for her role on the Netflix series “Orange Is The New Black”, but she is also an awesome singer. Cruz is also an accomplished musician and an aspiring photographer. As her first duty as a mentor, Cruz is encouraging all aspiring singers to upload an original song to Instagram or Facebook that showcases their vocal skills. The lucky winner will have the opportunity to be mentored one on one by Cruz. The winner will also receive cash prizes that will help aide his or her singing career.
