    Kandi: Donna, tell us a little about yourself and your artists.

    My name is Donna Banks and I currently reside in the city of Detroit, Michigan. My first profession is in the medical field as an Emergency Medical Technician. I knew I wanted to be able to service and provide for other people when I was younger and decided to enroll in college and pursue my dream. I have been offering my assistance to the sick and shut-in for the last 23 years! Sharing my encouragement and profound love of helping others to heal has always been and will be my first passion.

      I am also currently an A&R Representative at Top Pick Distribution for the Detroit chapter. My job is to help independent artists of all genres get their artistry heard and seen worldwide! I am currently signing all Independent and Unsigned artists up for Digital Distribution deals for my company. Top Pick is here to help the Indie artist move forward with their careers and take it to the next level!.. We also offer a wide variety of other services that would help you with the marketing and promotion of your project.. I can put your music to work! If your desire make your hard work and dedication for your music to be published GLOBALLY... I will help you!

     I co-own Black Banks Entertainment LLC and Black Banks Publishing.I am the CEO & Co-Founder of Definitely Divas LLC based out of Somerset, New Jersey.

     I do Plus sized modeling for some locally based photographers here in the city as well. I am interested in modeling for print-ads, magazine covers, and calendars. I am open to other suggestions such as USO tours and traveling abroad. I love to network with other models, photographers, designers, agencies, and modeling coaches to gain more experience and knowledge of this ever so changing industry.

    I am also a Music Manager for 4 uprising artists, for as we are called #TeamMoneyHungry. My team consists of Black Rain, MonteSS, Woodrow-the Entertainer and PrinceAuhmazin. I have been a manager for only 2 years and have received recognition for Best and Fastest upcoming Manager/ Promoter in the music industry here in Detroit. I keep my artists for for showcases, concert. open mics and tour dates at least twice weekly. I want my artists to be international stars... a household name. My marketing and branding plan has been put into play and has grown tremendously over the last 2 years. With the help of my artists, who by the way are not only lyrical geniuses, but very business savvy, we plan to take being an Independent artist to the level where the benefits will just as well as being signed to a major label. Be on the lookout for us, #TeamMoneyHungry!
