A.O. emerges with a new album “Episode 3:  A Force to Be Reckoned With”| @THEAGENCYHQ

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

A.O.

 

After picking up from Episode 1 and 2, A.O. unveils a new album Episode 3:  A Force to Be Reckoned With to be released on December 31st. Throughout his career, the Agency Operative has gone through a series of transformation to reach this point as a hip-hop artist. From writing in a journal to writing rhymes. Quickly, he went from playing trumpet to being a vocalist.

Shortly thereafter, there was a setback in which AO had to take a hiatus. The first album didn’t meet the financial success expected. So, the Agency Operative held back on releasing more projects. The first one could’ve been the last. The reason for creating another project would be – AO does not give up so quickly. Even though “Episode 1” did not reach financial success, the album did give him a better perception of how the music industry works.

A.O.

Another reason for putting out another project is that the graduate of TCNJ in 2009 has not seen much change in the economy. The job market continues to be limited to job opportunities. Not much has changed from the first album in 2011 to the current album in 2015. After graduation, A.O. continues to work temporary jobs with no offers for a permanent position. He decided to take his life in a new direction.

From the beginning, AO went by the stage name, King Kong. The reason for the name change was due to getting legal rights to the name. With that being said, the new name is  “The A.G.E.N.C.Y Operative.” Agency is an acronym (Agent Geared for Emissary to Navigate through Critical Conditions without yielding). Operative means secret agent. The Agency Operative is the secret agent of The Agency Headquarters and the name of the label. In 2010, the label launched, and the first single was “So Hot.”

What’s next?

With seven years into the game, the current status of A.O. is to continue with the mission. The third installment of his discography “Episode 3: A Force to be Reckoned With” will be released. “Episode 3: A Force to be Reckoned With” and will be available on Itunes and Google Play on December 31, 2017. Also, you can pre-order his album before its official launch.

As an agent on a mission, the journey will continue to fulfill the mission statement.  Connect with A.O. to be one of the first to download his latest project.

American Idol is ending after 15 seasons

Monday, May 11th, 2015

After 15 seasons on the air, American Idol is coming to an end. The arguably iconic show originally debuted all the way back in 2002 and helped launch the careers of artists that have since become household names, with Kelly Clarkson and Phillip Phillips being two prominent examples.

Whether you loved or hated the show, or even if you were wholly indifferent, one can’t deny the impact American Idol has had on popular culture. In addition to creating bona fide music stars and pop idols, the show’s success also had a tremendous impact on the broader TV landscape. Idol’s success paved the way for a number of other talent-based shows with similar structural elements, from America’s Got Talent to So you think you can dance.

Jennifer Hudson is returning to her humble beginnings and giving her fans to hop aboard a Carnival cruise.

In effort to attract more customers after some very unfortunate mishaps on their ships, Carnival has launched an on-board concert series called Carnival Live. J.Hud performed at a launch for the event in New York on Wednesday.

Jennifer told reporters at a news conference that signing on for Carnival Live is “like a full circle” for her. “I used to work on a cruise ship, a long time ago,” Jennifer explained. “That’s what I did before I did ‘American Idol.’”

Jennifer wasn’t working on the Disney cruise ship very long before she took the chance of a lifetime. She said, “Two days later, I went in and auditioned for ‘American Idol.’”

There’s no word on how long her particular gig will last or which ship she’ll be setting sail, but she is one of 14 major acts participating in the concert series. Chicago, Foreigner, Gavin DeGraw, Jewel, Lady Antebellum, LeAnn Rimes, Martina McBride, REO Speedwagon and Trace Adkins are also slated to appear during Carnival Live.

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars.
