GRAMMY Camp Visits Revolt

Julia Braverman, GRAMMY Camp LA 2015

On June 24, GRAMMY Campers left the University of Southern California’s campus for an exciting, music-filled day in Los Angeles. After traveling to The Recording Academy to hear from marketing and communications professionals, many students traveled to the multi-platform network of REVOLT, located in the heart of Los Angeles. The bold, bright-red studio opened the eyes of the GRAMMY Campers’ to what being in a TV audience was really like.

There were many cranes, cameras and people directing the audience to clap and cheer, and of course, the GRAMMY Campers were the loudest and most enthusiastic. Directors and producers would also anxiously count down the seconds until the show aired, while the hosts and artists would adjust their outfits and hair. All of the students were so intrigued, and also now had a general idea into the workings of putting on a live television program. Many students were even seen in the “This Is Not Fantasy Camp” tee shirts given to every camper, and the hosts gave all the GRAMMY Campers in the audience a shoutout. Lil Durk, an up and coming rapper signed to Def Jam, performed his upbeat singles, “What Your Life Like” and “Like Me”; engaging the audience with his stage presence and high energy. He also exclusively announced to REVOLT that he was going on tour, and premiered his new music video for “Remember My Name.”

Justine Skye, an Atlantic Records recording artist from Brooklyn, performed “Bandit” and “I’m Yours” from her latest EP, Emotionally Unavailable, that was released on June 23. Her songs had infectious beats and had everyone grooving in the studio, including the counselors.
