His first album titled “PHENOM” released in 2009 and since then he dropped two other album projects “BACK TO THE BASICS (2012)” and “BIG BUSINESS (2015)”. And now on April 30 2018, he will be releasing his highly anticipated 4th studio album titled “EMOTIONS”.   Full Submission It has been a year since we have heard new music from P-Lotus and it has been three years since he released a studio album. Finally the wait is coming to an end because “Emotions”, his 4th studio album is scheduled to release on April 30, 2018. The last release we heard from P-Lotus was the mixtape he released in April 2017 titled “Still Married To The Music 2”, this of course was the sequel to his now classic mixtape “Still Married To The Music”. His last studio album “Big Business”, which was he released under the artist name “Phenom” came out in 2015 and featured notable songs such as “Stop Killing Us”, “What Tonight Do” and “Make It Hard”. Now P-Lotus, the artist formerly known as Phenom, has reinvented himself and has a new and improved approach to making and releasing music. P-Lotus has always been known for his thought provoking and relatively clean lyrics. He has always tried to make music that all people of all ages can listen and relate to. P-lotus’ goal is to use hip-hop music as a means of self expression and to inspire and empower people. Over the years, P-Lotus has experimented with many different sounds, styles and subject matters while still staying true to his mission. During the time we were not hearing from P-Lotus, he was dealing with the music pressures of reinventing himself and staying relevant as an artist and also life pressure of balancing work, love life and being a dad. During this time, P-Lotus was also working on putting together this album that he eventually decided to title “Emotions”. P-Lotus put a lot of emotion into the making of this album. In every song you will hear the voice of both P-Lotus the artist and the man. Everything that has happened thus far in P-Lotus’ music journey has been leading to this album. “Emotions” the album has been anticipated for three years but it has been a lifetime in the making. This album is the culmination of all of P-Lotus’ experiences, feelings and emotions. This album marks a new beginning for P-Lotus, the artist formerly known as Phenom.   ### For more information, contact Dre “P-Lotus” Harris...

Triple Threat Performing Arts Academy

To be a standout performer, you have to be a triple threat – a singer, dancer, and actor. If you’ve dreamt of making your stage debut, you can make it a reality at Triple Threat Performing Arts Academy. Located in Downtown Fort Wayne, Triple Threat is unlike any performance academy in the area. The brand new facility offers a wide array of dance classes and private acting and voice so students can become just that – a triple threat. Executive Director Andy Planck originally hatched the idea of an all-encompassing performing arts academy in 2005 after touring nationally as a musical theatre actor. He returned to his Fort Wayne roots in 2009, but it just didn’t feel like the right time to start a studio. So, he pursued performing opportunities at top theatres in Chicago for a few years. Planck started taking note of the news of Fort Wayne’s emerging cultural vibrancy and downtown revitalization, and he said; “Now it’s time.” He acquired the first floor of the Randall Lofts Apartments on Pearl Street and began working on the rehearsal spaces immediately. His long-standing connections to the arts scene in Fort Wayne, including the collaboration with the newly formed Three Rivers Music Theatre, helped him to acquire professional performing arts instructors to begin the company. If you are looking to perform, opportunities are abundant for singers, dancers, and actors. Try a musical theatre class! The Three Rivers Music Theatre, with Resident Music Director Tommy Saul, debuts their first production, The Last Five Years, April 1-10 at the Parkview Physicians Group Arts Lab. “We’re very excited about this premier, and we’re looking forward to future performances in collaboration with other local performing arts groups!” Perhaps you think you have two left feet and just want to have some fun at a dance class. Drop-ins are always a welcome addition to the Triple Threat community. Join in on ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, and even heels! If you’re looking for a way to get your sweat on, there’s Zumba offered on Saturday mornings. Whether you’re a long-time lover of the spotlight or you’ve never set foot onstage, you too can become a triple threat! Triple Threat Performing Arts Academy offers classes on a semester basis for those age three to adult. Registration for this semester closes on February 21, but you can drop in on an adult dance class whenever you feel like busting a move. Check out triplethreatfw.com to see their full class roster and pricing.   Triple Threat Performing Arts Academy 212 Pearl Street Fort Wayne, IN...
