Hi William, I don’t know how interested you would be in this news but I know that I’ve had enough of being silent and this should be exposed.
In March 2016, I reached out to Larry Howard Jr. who at the time was Tasha Page Lockhart’s manager. He’s currently the Director of Marketing for Urban One. I emailed him about booking Tasha for an event in June 2017 which was more than a year out. I asked him if they were accepting bookings that early and he said yes they were but I needed to act quickly with sending the deposit as someone else was wanting the date.
I transferred him almost $2000 immediately to his bank and signed a contract that stated that Tasha would sing at my event in June 2017.
Well July 2016, I get a direct call from Tasha Page Lockhart herself stating that Larry Howard had falsely booked her for multiple events that she knew nothing about and also took the deposits and never gave them to her. I had already started advertising Tasha for my particular event and she mentioned that she saw my advertisements and asked Larry if I had reached out to him about even booking her. She says that he told her that I reached out but he turned me down because it was too far out. She said when she asked him why was I advertising her when I hadn’t signed a contract, he said he didn’t know why. She then told him to contact me and tell me to stop advertising her which he told her he did but of course he didn’t. Tasha told me that she couldn’t do my event until I got the money back from him and gave it to her directly.
I emailed Larry directly after the phone call with Tasha (as you can see in the screenshots below) and he told me that he would send me the money. He never sent me a dime. This put my annual event on an indefinite hiatus because I had already been accepting pre orders for tickets which I ended up having to give back and it put the event as whole in the negative. Dealing with this in court wasn’t working because he lives in Detroit and I love in Columbia, SC. The courts couldn’t decide what state this should be handled in so that was a dead end.
I saw that he posted something under Kirk Franklin’s Dove Awards boycott post and I took the opportunity to @ him about how I felt. He since then has blocked me and has still not offered to give me any of my money back. He needs to be exposed because he is still very active in the gospel music management scene and for sure has the money. He’s just choosing not to give me back what’s rightfully mine.
