Meet Mecca Williams of 5 Oceans Booking

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mecca Williams.

Mecca, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I am the founder and owner of 5 Oceans Booking. 5 Oceans Booking is a “Boutique Entertainment Company” based here in Los Angeles, CA. We specialize in a wide variety of entertainment services including management and public relations. We also produce events such as concerts, exclusive entertainment events, corporate events, charity events, and even sports events.

I founded my entertainment company based off of my love for the entertainment industry and entertainment business. I started my professional career as a singer and songwriter. I have been professionally singing since the age of 13 years old. I received a full scholarship for Music and attended Chapman University in Orange, CA. I majored in Music and minored in French. I signed a record deal with a major record label right out of college. I traveled the world to over 35 countries including but not limited to: United Kingdom, China, Nigeria, Morocco, Senegal, Malaysia, France, Germany, South Africa, Egypt, and Mexico. I also lived in Dubai, UAE. I am very happy that I was able to travel the world doing what I love to do. I wrote songs, sang background vocals, and recorded music for and with many successful artists.

A turning point in my life is when my brother, Michael Amir, became the “Chief of Staff” to the Michael Jackson Company. All of my amazing singing opportunities led me to acquiring priceless connections within the entertainment world. I am proud that I have produced many successful events and have worked with the BEST in the entertainment and sports worlds. 5 Oceans Booking recently held our 1st Annual “Women’s Entrepreneur Summit” celebrating Women’s Entrepreneur Day; it was a huge success. We are encouraging everyone, especially women, to pursue their entrepreneur endeavors. 5 Oceans Booking is looking forward to producing more successful and amazing events in the near future!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
My journey to becoming an entrepreneur has been a beautiful struggle for me. My success is based solely on my drive and determination. The entertainment industry is one of the hardest industries to break into. When I decided that I wanted to be on the business side of the industry versus being the artist; I really had to start from the ground up as a businesswoman. For example, one of my most popular services includes booking celebrities and professional athletes for special events. NOW I get sought after by many celebrities to put on their events. However, when I first started, no one wanted to work with my company because no one had ever heard of my company. I had to produce many credible events from the ground up so that my company could have the credibility that is needed to survive in this industry! That meant me personally funding my own events, promoting my own events, contacting the talent by myself, it was a lot of work. I used my own resources, made many cold calls, and was told NO so many times. BUT, I NEVER gave up; and that is why I call my journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur a beautiful struggle!

Please tell us about 5 Oceans Booking.
My company, 5 Oceans Booking, is a Boutique Entertainment Company based here in Los Angeles, CA. We specialize in producing special events, booking celebrities to host special events, and we produce sport camps for professional athletes. We also offer management and public relation services for artists, models, actors, rappers, singers, and comedians. One of my popular services that I offer is celebrity bookings. I connect my clients to celebrities and public figures to ensure that their event will be a success. It is vital for my clients to have these public figures at their special events because it ultimately boosts their business. For example, when a nightclub owner desires to host a special event because business is slow, they will contact me to book a celebrity to make an appearance at their nightclub. That will ensure a big crowd, which guarantees great business for their nightclub. Celebrities attending special events will ultimately lead to a boost in business overall. It’s a win for the celebrities as well because they stay relevant and working!

What sets my company apart from other companies is that we are a boutique entertainment company! In the entertainment industry, most celebrity bookings and events are produced via well-established companies that have been around for over 5o+ years. These entertainment companies are big entities with a big roster of celebrities, and it’s almost impossible for people not in the entertainment industry to contact these celebrities and professional athletes through these big companies. My company makes it simple for my clients to reach these celebrities through me because of my personal connections that I have previously made in the entertainment industry as a singer. So ultimately, I am what sets my company apart from other entertainment companies! I am proud to say that I have released my own music through my entertainment company. I released my 1st single “I Need Your Love”, available on ALL streaming platforms worldwide, under my own Entertainment Company, 5 Oceans Booking! I am extremely proud of that accomplishment!

I am also proud of 5 Oceans Booking hosting our 1st Annual Women’s Entrepreneur Summit celebrating Women’s Entrepreneur Day. I have had so many people who attended our 1st Annual Women’s Entrepreneur Summit, message me and tell me that the Women’s Summit changed their life and inspired them to be better entrepreneurs. I am extremely proud of that, and I am looking forward to our 2nd Annual Women’s Entrepreneur Summit! I am also proud to announce that 5 Oceans Booking is actively producing a documentary about women in gangs! Growing up in Los Angeles, I seen first hand how destructive gang culture has been to the Los Angeles community! This documentary will tackle the problem of women in gang culture; this documentary will give positive alternatives to the gang lifestyle through entrepreneurship! So look out for 5 Oceans Booking first documentary coming out soon! I am extremely proud of that as well!

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory from childhood is my entire childhood overall! I remember always being surrounded by love from my family! The love from my family gave me an amazing foundation which has strengthened me in my journey as an entrepreneur! I remember always wanting to sing since I could remember, and my mother would sign me up for pageants, take me to my piano lessons, take me to auditions, and was such an amazing support system for me in this journey! I am nothing without my family! I have a very close family! Now that I am a Mother to an amazing nine years old boy, I try to instill in him the same values that my parents have instilled in me! Those values have kept me grounded in such a fast pace industry! I love my Mother so much, she was the first example of what I saw as an entrepreneur! She wrote poetry books, published them, and sold them! I was amazed at how she did that! I love my father very much; I get my hustle from my Dad! He taught me what I needed to know as far as the streets of Los Angeles! So my favorite memory from my childhood is just my childhood overall because it was filled with so much love!
