The Source | Legendary Producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins Launches Music Writing Camp for Kids

Multi-Grammy Award-winning record producer, rapper and songwriter Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins is looking to hire 10 music production proteges and spend 2 days in the studio with them. Darkchild seeks to give back and help find and develop incredible, undiscovered young talent.

He has pledged to find and select 10 proteges through his campaign and with the release of their work, they will potentially be introduced to top A-list artists to consider for their own recordings. Jerkins Camp will cover a $500 travel and hotel grant and participants must be responsible for their own travel and accommodations. Candidates can submit a 60-second audition video via its Protected page. Each submission will receive a personalized commentary video from Darkchild.

This will be the first camp he organizes with previously unknown talents, which he considers an important access opportunity for young producers and artists.

Darkchild is an award-winning producer, having collaborated with a wide range of popular artists including Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Destiny’s Child, Brandy, Michael Jackson, and more.
