In the news release, Music Industry Leaders David Frangioni, Rudy Perez, Jon Secada And Mark Hudson Are Looking For New Music Talent, issued Nov. 9, 2012 by Midnite Communications/IDA Program over PR Newswire, we are advised by the company that the second subheadline should read "Jon Secada, Rudy Perez, Mark Hudson and David Frangioni are available for interviews through November 24th" rather than "November 9th" and the eighth paragraph, first sentence, should read "Jon Secada, Rudy Perez, Mark Hudson and David Frangioni are available for interviews through November 24th" rather than "are available for interviews and will be on media tour from October 22 through November 9th" as originally issued inadvertently. The complete, corrected release follows:

Music Industry Leaders David Frangioni, Rudy Perez, Jon Secada And Mark Hudson Are Looking For New Music Talent

--Don't miss the chance to collaborate with multiplatinum and Grammy winning producers/songwriters.--

--Jon Secada, Rudy Perez, Mark Hudson and David Frangioni are available for interviews through November 24th.--

MIAMI, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (Midnite Communications) – Inspire and Develop Artists (IDA Program), which offers aspiring artists the opportunity of a lifetime, is hosting their weeklong boot camp in South Beach from November 25Dec 1. The seven (7) day boot camp for artists is a chance to work with the best of the best in the music industry. Typically these producers and songwriters only work with artists that have years of experience and are signed to a music label and have a few records under their belt.

The course, led by pop superstar Jon Secada, music production giants Rudy Perez, Mark Hudson and David Frangioni includes classes for vocal coaching, songwriting, recording, mixing, studio technology, rehearsals, live performances, stage presence, music business guest speakers and more. Class sizes are kept intentionally small to provide an intimate learning experience, thus space is limited.

Hopeful participants will work one-on-one with the mentors along with a group of renowned industry experts including modeling guru, Michele Pommier and fashion editor, Jenny Perez amongst other support staff to embrace every aspect of the industry. The experience and knowledge this program offers is a golden opportunity for any aspiring artist. At the end of the weeklong program, each attendee will have the knowledge they will need to compete in this industry, along with the image building, choreography training, business fundamentals and their own professionally recorded single to help launch their careers.

"I've mentored young talent my entire career. It's a way of giving back that's important to me and being an educator is something I truly enjoy. The best part about IDA as a mentor is that I get to join a superstar team of industry giants whose sole focus is in inspiring and developing music's next generation. I feel honored to be a part of IDA and I'm very excited to meet and work with all of its participants," commented Jon Secada.

"I want to put you through that boot camp with all the great mentors and instructors at IDA and I want you to come out a Superstar at the other end! It's going to change your life," affirms Rudy Perez. "I want to find great future artists, develop and mentor them to their full potential here at IDA. This is what my passion is right now; I think that's going to be my greatest legacy."

"IDA was born in part from our experiences in being trained and understanding how powerful a day in the music industry can be and how it can change the rest of your life. Now, we are offering several days to learn from a team comprised of the best," said, David Frangioni.

"I've known David and Rudy for many, many years, but the time is now for us to finally work together and bring IDA to the artists of tomorrow. If your dream is to have a career in music or the entertainment business, then IDA will take you to the next level," added Mark Hudson.

Jon Secada, Rudy Perez, Mark Hudson and David Frangioni are available for interviews through November 24th. For interview requests please contact Jennifer Diliz directly at 305-206-4040 or via email at [email protected] .
