About Worldwide Music Producers’ LISTEN AND EXCHANGE™
Entertainment Attorney Dedra Davis, was constantly approached by music producers that wanted their music heard, lyricists that had no music, singers that had no music, movie producers that needed music for their films, film directors that wanted to do music videos, etc. The Worldwide Music Producers' LISTEN AND EXCHANGE™ (listenandexchange.com) was Entertainment Attorney Dedra Davis' way to help put all the people together and give them permission to meet one another, talk to one another, and do business with one another. She "dreamed" up the event in October 2002, began planning the event in November 2002, and had the event in February 2003. It took on a "life of its own" and now Entertainment Attorney Dedra Davis has turned this brainchild into a trademarked yearly event.
