Like all GRAMMY Week events, GRAMMY Camp — Basic Training is rich with big name talent, from “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” music director Rickey Minor and three-time GRAMMY winner Pepe Aguilar to two-time GRAMMY-winning producer Jimmy Jam and GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter Melissa Manchester. But the activities spread out across the University of Southern California campus on Feb. 8 weren’t about GRAMMY Awards, platinum albums or sold-out tours. It was about the more than 700 Los Angeles-area high school students who were on hand to learn how to build a successful career in the music business.

One of the best aspects of GRAMMY Camp — Basic Training is the spontaneous interchange between students and the professional participants. Case in point, one lucky student who was selected in the Music Director, Producer And More panel to sing with Minor and the other panelists, including saxophonist Miguel Gandelman, guitarist Paul Jackson Jr. and percussionist Kevin Ricard. The same panel found former “American Idol” finalist Lacey Brown break into the title track of her latest EP, Let It Go, and singer/songwriter Didi Benami serenading attendees with “Release Me,” a song from her forthcoming EP.

Other professionals who participated in the day’s activities included radio personality DJ Skee, EMI Music Publishing’s Amanda Berman, Bill Silva Entertainment’s Ryan Chisholm, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” music talent booker Scott Igoe, and video director Matthew Cherry.

    oh she is just so beautiful and sexy. She has those curves that every women envies. And here stunning simplicity is just amazing. I also like her blond hair and even if it’s curly or straight it fits her well.
