LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Respected Latin music executive and record producer ALEJANDRO ASENSI and renowned entertainment executive IRVING AZOFF have announced the formation of AA MUSIC MANAGEMENT, a join venture wherein the pair will oversee the careers of some of the hottest and most promising talent in the Latin music industry. The first artist announced to join AA Music Management is Grammy-winning recording artist LUIS MIGUEL. Additionally, AA will pursue touring and other opportunities in the Latin world for CHRISTINA AGUILERA who will release her second Spanish language album in Spring 2005.
Asensi has for many years managed the career of Luis Miguel, who has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and is a record-setting touring artist in the U.S., Spain and Latin America. Irving Azoff is one of entertainment’s most successful managers, executives and film producers; his azoffmusic management company represents Christina Aguilera, The Eagles, Jewel, Seal, Van Halen and Babyface. Together Asensi, Azoff and their team bring a global perspective and long term thinking to the careers of the artists they sign to their new venture.
In making the announcement, Asensi said, “Irving and I will be intimately involved with our artist’s careers. We plan to sign a select group of talent with a wide range of styles, some of whom may have already achieved success and others who may just be starting out. The criteria they all will have in common is our belief in their talent and potential for a long term career. We have the knowledge to guide them down that path, special talent has special needs. We are a truly modern music management company in the field, providing value, vision, trust and comfort for the Latin creative community. It’s an honor to be in business with Irving Azoff.”
“The inherent capacity for growth within the Latin recording industry is enormous,” says Azoff. “I don’t think that the artists have come anywhere close to realizing their sales and career potential. AA Music Management offers a structure in which artists can feel certain that for the first time they are being offered the absolute best creative and business choices to further their career to the maximum,” he continued. “We have the background and resources to bring those choices to the artists and the wisdom and experience to advise them on how to proceed. There’s no firm like it in the Latin music business and there’s no one other than Alejandro with whom I would want to create it.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
