The panel received rave reviews from the panelists, the Harvard community, and attendees. Panelists discussed the importance of staying in school, staying out of trouble, and how to pursue a career in the music business. Attendees were able to ask panelists questions about how to obtain internships in the business, the best way to go about pursuing specific careers in music, and how to maximize their exposure to the general public and major labels. One of the major topics of the panel discussion was the important role the internet plays in helping individuals with entertainment industry career aspirations. Of course that is in addition to hard work and education. Over 150 students attended the event including, Harvard alum, Singer and Actress Tatiana Ali, from the long-running hit show, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
