ABOUT OUR OWNER - KATHY McGUIRE
Kathy McGuire (Performer/Promoter/Producer/Personality) outlines big picture strategies. She is the driving force behind the company's obsessively detailed logistical charts and calculates spreadsheets until each column has become its own finely-tuned battle plan. Her leadership gives Events by KathySings4u and Vocal4Media the bedrock foundation needed to keep a crew of poetic dreamers in line.
Back when the only interaction children had with media was to act as the family’s TV remote, Kathy starred in a nationally syndicated children’s series. As a ’tween, television producers gave her an unprecedented latitude: researching and writing her own documentary segments . . . A strong start to working as an industry producer! Her hometown of Houston, Texas provided musical tapestry roots, and she was woven into it as a performer, producer and a promoter before she even hit puberty!
This experience served her well when she became the parent manager—“Mom’ager”—of her oldest daughter’s career. For nearly a decade, she managed that career from the Branson Tourist Strip, through a national Les Miserables tour, throughout Tampa Bay, and all the way to New York City.
Kathy’s business acumen opened doors for the child to headline her own show at a world-famous cabaret, gain national exposure with winning appearances on "Showtime at the Apollo," get two top Five singles on the Billboard charts, and sign a record deal . . . all by age 15. These are difficult enough feats for a seasoned agent, but for a self-taught Personal Manager to achieve client success at the center of that cut-throat New York scene is remarkable.
This calculated management involved cultivating an artist’s image, creative product, promotion, logistics, networking, and contract negotiations. It allowed Kathy to hone her abilities for multi-tasking, project management, and discerning when to approach business dealings from a conventional or unconventional standpoint.
Kathy's passion for orchestrating sparkling events has flourished during decades of staging live shows, parties, and fundraisers. These small and large scale events earned her the respect of entertainment and not-for-profit sector professionals in Branson, Houston, New York, and throughout Tampa Bay.
Her love of singing “music with a message” finds its outlet as her onstage persona, KathySings4u. She is a powerhouse vocalist, whose caring radiates from the heart, with undeniable sincerity.
Kathy’s superpowers include introducing clients to her carefully networked business contacts, scouring lists of local organizations to find synergistic partnerships, and brainstorming how to get all the necessary people, places, and objects together with maximum efficiency.
Trusting your branding to someone who understands your heartbeat and your passion is what makes Kathy stand apart from other marketing companies.
She created this boutique agency, Vocal4Media, to fine tune your message with your intentions: forming strategical one-on-one marketing campaigns with her unique approach to showcasing your message so it has just the right decibel level to be heard above your competitors.
