Exquisite Pieces is a duo consisting of two classy, gorgeous ladies who love to dance. We primarily twerk, but we also choreograph and perform full routines. We have been dancing most of our lives. We are originally from Detroit, MI but right now we are currently college students in Lima, OH. Blondie (Courtney) also praise dances and does modern and ballet. She choreographs modern dances back at her high school from time to time. Chocolate Wonder (Chevonne) has also done modern dancing. She has even been crowned hip roll queen of Detroit! We both feel that we have been born to dance and we have chosen to pursue our dancing careers together. Once the group was official, we started making videos and uploading them to sites such as YouTube and Facebook to get daily viewers. We have been asked to perform at parties, clubs, and music videos. Exquisite Pieces long-term goal is to become professional dancers. We would like to be featured in videos and/or be asked to choreograph dances. All in all, we will never give up on our dream; we will strive for bigger and better opportunities to fulfill our career.

MACTUNES IN NEW YORK CITY
The MovementIndies Artist Stand Tall & March Forward
I took a trip to the legendary city of Manhattan to introduce the magazine to the East Coast. I met with several people in the fields of music, publishing, fashion and media. The reviews were positive. I wanted to see if we could hold an audience with Indies artist and writers. We seem to keep our audience entertained.

Another task was to establish contacts for advertising in our magazine. As a magazine we must earn our income by companies purchasing space from us each month. We were able to open some doors of
opportunity with our magazine. The key to our success together is to publish articles, features, lessons, and data in the magazine about Indies artist accomplishments and failures. Our magazine will not
represent just musical talent. We plan to capture all talent associated with media such stylist, designers, artist, photographers, musicians of all types, producers, etc..... We want to be a learning tool and a
networking base for our supporters as well as a strong entity for the up and coming talent.

For every generation and season, a voice is heard. Its a voice that salutes the legends before them and gracefully accepts the challenge of continuing in their footsteps. A voice that demands attention, pushes the envelope, and evokes emotions.
Through her electrifying showmanship, bold sound and ability to redefine trends, songstress Vina Mills is more than just an entertainer, she is the Voice of this generation.
In April of 2011 Vina released her first national single Love Again. The mid tempo melodic track driven by instrumentation of continuous heart like pulsating drum beats and crying strings visually depicts the feeling of falling in Love.
With the distinctive rasp of her sultry vocals paired with sophisticated 808 and a rhythmic hook, Vina has created the ultimate hit for all music lovers.
MacTunes caught up with this dynamic beauty to see whats going on in her world of stardom. Check out the interview...
When and where did your musical journey begin?
My musical journey started when i was about 5 years old. My dad was a musician, he actually wrote songs for Dolly Parton way before i was born. My
brothers and i didn't grow up in wealth. Toys and games were limited, so our father made up songs for us as a source of entertainment. He knew right
away that i had something special and from then on my training began.
How would you describe the sound and style of Vina Mills?
I call my style and sound "Electric Soul". Its soul music that makes u dance (smiling)! its honest music that makes you feel good. !Every song i write is from
a personal experience, something all my listeners can relate to and learn from.
As an independent artist, we know the road gets tough at times. What keeps you motivated?
What keeps me going is self motivation. Its just in me to be confident and believe that I'm going to be bigger than I could ever imagine.. Music is
something i cant live without, its how I express myself. Just waking up is motivating enough, and I take that feeling to write an amazing record.
What have been some monumental moments in your career thus far?
I've been fortunate to have two monumental moments that happened to me before. (1) a young lady! dressed up as me for Halloween (laughing) and (2)
another young lady a different time came to me in tears and told me that i changed her life for the better..... No matter how many records i sell, tours i
do, movies, endorse
