Los Angeles, CA – Hip Hop Artist SKG, also known as Helecia Choyce, made a memorable appearance at the Power of Love Gala Hosted by Larry Wilmore and Honoring Legendary Sports Agent and WME Head of Basketball Bill Duffy and Basketball Great Spencer Haywood.
Having graced the music industry from a young age, Rapper SKG hails from Los Angeles, California. SKG entered the music industry at thirteen years old and was discovered by Suge Knight , signing a major deal with Death Row Records. Her track “Let em Have it” on Tupac Shakur’s “Until The End of Time” went to #4 on the charts, earning her a Platinum Plaque. In 2004, she left Death Row Records and now she prides herself as a independent artist working both in front of and behind the scenes.
However, it was her attendance at the Power of Love Gala that truly opened her eyes to the importance of The Ryan Gordy Foundation and why bringing awareness to causes like this is important.
Reflecting on her experience, SKG stated, “This was my first time attending this type of event, and I’m happy that I got a chance to meet some really great people and hear beautiful stories about the organization”.
