The married couple is making business moves.
Ciara is living her best life. She's met the man of her dreams in husband Russell Wilson, she has two beautiful children, she continues to tour the world performing to sold-out audiences, and a few years back she launched both her own entertainment company and record label. Earlier this year, during the time that she was preparing for the release of her latest album Beauty Marks, Ciara told Ryan Seacrest that she was excited to watch her business ambitions come into fruition.
Earlier today, Ciara announced that she has signed her first artist, a singer named DeAndre. In a business-meets-pleasure move, Ciara and Russell will reportedly act as DeAndre's managers. "Meet Deandre! The World’s Next Vocal Giant," Ciara shared on Instagram. "We are excited to announce we have officially signed this amazing star to our Management Company (@West2EastEmpire) & Record Label (@BeautyMarksEntertainment). Welcome to the family."
Over on his Instagram page, DeAndre was beaming with excitement to finally share the news with his nearly 100K followers. "So it’s finally out ðð½all these years of puttin in work God blesses me with a team that believes in what I do!" he wrote. "I’m officially signed to @west2eastempire with my new managers @ciara and @dangerusswilson in my new record label @beautymarksentertainment ðð½ grateful and highly blessed to have two of the most talented people in their craft helping me make my dreams come true.
