Shefik to Debut Nationally Syndicated Radio Show on July 4th
NEW YORK — After recently signing a syndication deal with Syndication Networks Corporation to create, host, and produce a weekly show for terrestrial radio, media personality Shefik readies to reveal his multifaceted conception on July 4, 2016. Legendary recording artists, such as Dionne Warwick; Gerald Alston of The Manhattans; Melba Moore; Sonny Turner (former lead singer of The Platters); Leaveil Degree of The Whispers; Tito Puente, Jr.; Ladies of SKYY; Trisco Pearson of Force MDs; and many other music industry veterans are all scheduled to appear in early episodes of the show.
Additional appearances include a parade of critically-acclaimed, Grammy Award winning singer-songwriters from a variety of genres, such as Gordon Chambers (Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, Usher, Anita Baker); and gold and platinum-selling vocalists, such as the R&B group Solo. A highlight of an upcoming episode will feature an appearance by the Crown Prince of Italy, His Royal Highness Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy.
Aptly titled Shefik presents Invocation, the radio show is a mesmerizing and thought-provoking journey through musical discovery and appreciation that spans the decades. Each one-hour episode highlights one relatable focal point (chosen by Shefik), along with an accompanying playlist of songs (curated by Shefik), encompassing a unique thematic concept that invigorates the audience with creative impact.
A wide spectrum of actors, business executives, politicians, community leaders, and other special guests are also scheduled to offer their own commentary on the weekly topic, as a supplement to Shefik's engaging mindset.
"I intentionally designated the Fourth of July and Independence Day as the launch date, with the intent of setting a precedent for perception," declares Shefik. "This project is an exercise in self-determination and self-discovery. It is about navigating a course of action, and mapping definition via the process. I am on an epic journey, and I invite all of you to accompany me on the excursion."
Shefik presents Invocation will broadcast its premiere episode during the week of July 4th, with "Revolution" as the designated topic. However, the radio show's online hub at invocation.co will be unveiled on July 4th itself, as a conduit for discussion of the show, while featuring related videos and auxiliary content. Shefik has already traveled across seven states (Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Virginia) to meticulously document compelling guests and to capture interview segments for the show. More travels are expected to follow.
