Today we’d like to introduce you to Cece Heath.
Cece, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started a management company four years ago by the name of TMC Management. After speaking with an awesome entertainment attorney by the name of Ricky Anderson in Houston. In regards to services that I was providing for artists. He said did you know you operate as a label?. It might be a good idea if you considered starting one. You know you truly have what it takes. Fast forward, after building a team I decided to take that direction. So I talked it over with a few of my business associates who decided to help me with rebranding . I started with a new team with the exceptions of two previous team members. I said why not and began promoting and I still had my same connections within the music industry. In the midst of all of this I was running my nonprofit called Amazing Soldiers. Where I assist with veterans and their families within the Houston/Katy community. While doing this I was also attending college to obtain a degree in Human Resources to add to my HCABA with the help and support of my family and team. I was able to balance it all… It truly takes a village!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Honestly, no it hasn’t been a smooth road the reason being it was hard finding team members that were willing to work and that were dependable & as passionate as I was . Some people would want to be apart of the special events etc.. And not willing to put the work into being a part of those special engagements. A lot of people just weren’t willing to put that 110% into the work. It can be a bit challenging at times going from TX to LA to Detroit to Atlanta, but we make it work and end up with happy clients. To be honest it isn’t easy being a woman and a minority within this industry.
We’d love to hear more about the company.
Our company is diverse it’s currently operated by all females. We don’t charge a monthly fee we want our clients to invest in their careers. Our potential clients have to go through a process first being interviewed, fill out our questionnaire & a final interview. Once we make a decision rather or not that potential client is a good fit within our company. We later move forward with physicals, etc. some may feel that’s too much. Our artist’s mental and physical health is number one. By doing all of this it also helps us weed out a lot of people who aren’t serious about their music career. We also teach them the business part of this industry. Royal Court Records doesn’t accept any and everyone into our Royal family. You have to have the total package!
What were you like growing up?
I was a very shy little girl who always had a desire to help others, especially when it came to those that were disabled. My family and I both thought I would go into the medical and maybe become a nurse and or doctor. Well at 17 yrs old I became a Certified Nursing Assistant and during that time doing clinicals. I was blessed to have been caring for The Clark Sisters’ mother which is a huge gospel group back in Detroit. Later I married at a young age started a family & had four kids. I did eventually decide to attend Nursing school. I completed the program, but I chicken out and never to my Board exams. Back in my hometown Detroit I decided to start a business with my grandmother called Sisters WIth Open Arms. This was the beginning of something great. Originally we were only to open two adult group homes where we assisted with veterans, persons who suffered from mental, developmentally impairments. Within two years we were blessed to have opened 14 homes and during that time we met some awesome people. This would come to an end due to a divorce of after twenty years my grandmother being diagnosed with Dementia and a big move to Houston. This is where I started Amazing Soldiers, TMC, which is now Royal Court Records.
