Rockaway Beach, NY – We have focused on big-name stars and how they are an influence in our communities; but we need to start looking at the advocators within our community that are there to do for the people. One gentleman Henry Gray is no mystery to the public. Henry Gray aka Distinguish, originally known for his poetic style that leads him to a place of a piece in the mind because he like most people was ready to give up on life. He isn’t one for titles or wanting to be recognized with big accolades. Henry just wants people to understand his worth and his purpose while he is continuously helping others.
Henry started using his poetic forum to invite other artists to speak out about life in poetry fashion. He used a platform called Bars N the Barbershop, where the artists would perform in various barbershop locations. This platform gives an opportunity for talents to be shared that otherwise might not have been noticed or was still trying to find a way to market themselves. Henry expanded this platform to the United Kingdom and gave the performers there an opportunity to compete and perform against each other. When they reached a certain level and had high sales, they were flown to the United States to be a part of a show that is part of his network, under Disnetwork Inc. This allows peoples voices to be heard and bring positivity to the youth and hip-hop community. The show is actually going on the road because April 6 starts the beginning of the tour.
Henry is also behind the face of Dad Hats & BowTies. The purpose of this platform is a podcast journey that speaks about social justice and media, movie reviews, new in fashion and some other hot topics. This platform also engages with A, B, C list celebrities within the industry of music and business today. Henry and his partner are looking to expand this network as well, that will allow intellectuals, hosts and creatives to be a part of the plan.
