Local DJ Showcases Talent During World’s Largest Multicultural Beauty Show

In a bold, unprecedented move, a Rockford Native was selected as a DJ for the world’s largest multicultural beauty show – the Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show.

Antwon George (DJ Rated AG) took his talent to the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, during February 20 – 22. George was a DJ for the annual Beauty Show which featured top-level educators, trendsetting artists and inspiring leaders of the multi-cultural beauty industry. Approximately 30,000 licensed professionals and students attended the three-day convention, which is widely regarded as the largest multi-cultural beauty show in the world.

Those attending included celebrity stylists behind some of today’s most iconic looks. A-list participants included Neal Farina (Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige), Sam Fine (Tyra Banks, Vanessa Williams, Patti LaBelle, Iman), Takisha Sturdivant-Drew (Kerry Washington, Sanaa Lathan, Amber Riley), Andre Walker (Oprah, Halle Berry) and Johnny Wright (First Lady Michelle Obama).

George was recently recognized as one of the area’s 25 Black Leaders to Watch. He is businessman in every sense of the word. From the traditional side, he works as coordinator of Health Works at Winnebago County Health Department; and from the non-traditional side, he does his thing as DJ Rated AG. He received his bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University and he recently obtained his master’s in Organizational Leadership from Judson University.  Share this story to help us congratulate him on this well-deserved opportunity at Bronner Bros. to add to his list of accomplishments.
