Headed up by Big Billy Clark, Executive Vice President of Hitmakers Entertainment, our mentors are among the top industry talent who are behind today's hits and top artists. Each night a different group of experts hold a Q&A round table, then attend our concert to provide feedback to each performer.

The face to face, one on one connection VU provides with professionals at this level is uncommon to have until years into the industry.
