Matthew Knowles may have exited the business dealings for his daughter Beyonce but he still has plans of making a lot of money for his company Music World Entertainment. Rather than focus on pop or urban music, Mr. Knowles believe the new revenue opportunity is in faith-based and inspirational music.
“There’s tremendous growth potential for the faith-based inspirational community in digital, production, branding, endorsements and merchandising,” says Mr. Knowles.
His company has a solid roster of inspirational acts including Juanita Bynum, Trin-i-tee 5:7 and Brian Courtney Wilson. Throughout his career, Mr. Knowles has proven he can propel artist careers and navigate the entertainment business.
“I believe we can share 20 years of knowledge and successes to make that happen” he told Black Enterprise.
As far as any lost momentum with the exit of his prized daughter Beyonce, the music mogul says he’s still blessed.
“Now I’m really focused and I have activated myself in such a way to embrace new opportunities,” he tells Black Voices. “I’m so grateful and blessed to have had so many successes. I pinch myself sometimes to think of this country boy who has accomplished so much from my career at Xerox to be the No. 1 sales rep, have talented daughters and a wife, the creation of Destiny’s Child, a No. 1 female artist. And I don’t know if folks know this but of all the artists in the world in a decade, Destiny’s Child and Beyonce are on that Top 10 list. I’ve achieved and accomplished more that I could have ever dream.”
