Shay Star: Weekday Mornings 6-10am/Middays 10am-3pm

 

Originally from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Shay Star was born February 6, 1986. It was after relocating to Dover, Delaware, when her musical aspirations began at the tender age of 4 years old. Nevertheless, at 9 years of age, she began singing in her church youth choir. Coming from a very musically inclined family, they influenced and encouraged her to pursue a career in singing and songwriting. Shay even studied classical and modern ballet for 12 years to further explore her artistic abilities.

During an eight year run as an up and coming R&B artist, Shay Star collaborated and opened for many of our industries top artists and producers such as Funk Master Flex, Trey Songz, Omarion, Cassidy, DJ Kid Capri, Maino, Lloyd, Doug E. Fresh, Freeway and DJ Touchtone just to name a few. In addition to traveling and performing, Shay also released a series of mixtapes to keep her name buzzing as she continued to chase her dreams.

Due to a victorious win at Power 105.1’s own DJ Envy's "Heart of the City" Showcase in 2010, Shay Star had the pleasure of working with celebrity photographer Felix Natal Jr. who also shared a vision with the young star. Felix opened his studio to Shay so that she could utilize her look for urban/eye candy modeling as another outlet to get her name out there. Becoming very uncomfortable with the type of “attention” this avenue brought fourth, Shay quickly realized that this wasn’t the path she desired in the entertainment business. However, the short lived moment landed her in several magazines including Dime Piece Magazine (issue #5) and a host of online features including rap mogul 50 Cent’s website, ThisIs50.com.

After a long, sacrificing journey, Shay decided to completely alter her path to success. As of April 1, 2011, Shay Star is the CEO & Co- Founder of www.ShayStar.com which is an entertainment based website that strives to create cross-branding, marketing and promotional opportunities for all facets and genres of the entertainment industry.

Understanding the importance and influence celebrities, athletes and entertainers have over our communities, Shay strives to encourage the youth and her peers to embrace the culture of entertainment while emphasizing the value of education, hard work, commitment and dedication. The Shay Star brand has established a platform for entertainers, athletes and entrepreneurs alike to tell their stories and promote their brands as well. It is especially important to Shay that her audience leaves ShayStar.com feeling like they’ve gained something verses having to buy in to an idea or product.

Claiming the position as the ultimate media personality, Shay has covered/hosted events from New York Fashion Week to Essence Festival in New Orleans. Living by her infamous motto, “being wherever I need to be whenever I need to be there!” Shay Star has earned public recognition from major industry executives such as Konvict Muzik CEO, Melvin Brown and Epic Records Senior Vice President, Jojo Brim. In addition, Shay has made a promise to bring some type of integrity back into the entertainment business; especially as it relates to women.

The creator and hostess of Shay Star Radio, (an extension of BlogTalkRadio.com) Shay has been an avid supporter of independent artists and entrepreneurs around the world as she recognizes the need for up and coming artists and creative individuals to have a platform to stand on and support their dreams while going through the trenches of this industry.
