How to Hire ASHANTI For Your Event!
aka: Ashanti Shequoiya Douglas
Grammy award winning Ashanti Douglas is an American singer, songwriter and actress. She began to sing in a gospel choir at the age of 6. As she grew, her musical talent developed and with it, appearances followed.
She danced in a show at Carnegie Hall and in the Disney television musical, “Polly.” It was in high school that she honed her songwriting skills and harnessed her talent for creating a story that people could relate to, song after song – and she’s rolling.
Hire Ashanti for your festival or concert plans.
Ashanti first announced her presence with the Big Pun hit, “How We Roll”, in 2001. Her sound was infectious and caught the attention of record producers. Irv Gotti, the polished producer with Murder Inc. Records, was credited with her discovery and what was supposed to be an initial collaboration, turned into a record contract. The demure and feminine Ashanti was hesitant at first to sign with a label named Murder Inc., but she filled a void in the company stable of talent.
In 2002, she released her eponymous debut album, which sold over 505,000 copies throughout the U.S. in its first week of release. The album earned her many awards, including eight Billboard Music Awards, two American Music Awards, and a Grammy Award in 2003 for Best Contemporary R&B Album.
As a young girl, Ashanti was influenced by Ella Fitzgerald, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Prince, and Tupac Shakur, but she cites Mary J. Blige as the main reason she wanted to pursue a singing career. Further musical influences include Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Smokey Robinson, Donna Summer, and Blue Magic.
Throughout her career Ashanti has collaborated with numerous artists, including Belly, Sia, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Queen Latifah, Fat Joe, Ja Rule, Usher, Kelly Clarkson, Ty Dolla Sign, Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne.
Her discography includes six studio albums, twenty-four singles, and twenty-one music videos.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE ASHANTI?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire ASHANTI for an event?)
(i.e., what is ASHANTI booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for ASHANTI, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
