15 Aug SoulTrain Q&A – Nick Cooper
How does one turn down an opportunity to work on tour with Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez to become the creative director for a television show in China? When you’re acclaimed vocal coach, producer, motivational speaker and entrepreneur Nicholas Cooper, the answer is simple. “You say ‘no’ by looking toward the future,” he says. “Do I stick with someone who already has a career, or do I fortify the career I think I’m going to have?” Such a statement makes sense knowing the storied history of one of the go-to guys within the music industry. For the past few of decades, Cooper has been taking perfectly executed risks as well as breaking many glass ceilings. Before turning 18-years-old, he sang for President Ronald Reagan, appeared on television and landed his first Broadway gig.
