Florenza Campos: Brief Respite

Berklee Blogs checks in with Florenza Campos, Brazilian-born singer-songwriter, Professional Music major and freshly minted intern at Universal Music Latin. We’ll check in periodically with Florenza as she shares her lessons and insights from Miami as one of the Office of Experiential Learning’s veteran interns

These past few days I have actually spent in Boston for the annual Berklee Songwriters Night, in which my song “Heartbreaker” was chosen as a winner. I just had the performance at the Berklee Performance Center last night, and it was an incredible show. I am very thankful to have had that opportunity, and to know that everyone back at Universal was supporting and rooting for me.

The past few weeks have also been a bit busy at the office. Nothing too exciting has happened since the Winter Music Conference, but I still had all my regular errands. I had to get in contact with every DJ and record pool we have on our agenda, to make sure to get them to push the single “Bebe Bonita” to number one on their charts. The video (that I participated in) came out on YouTube not too long ago, and it has surpassed 3,000.000 views within the first few days! That was probably one of the most exciting experiences I had at Universal.

Florenza Campos: It’s All Coming Together

Berklee Blogs checks in with Florenza Campos, Brazilian-born singer-songwriter, Professional Music major and freshly minted intern at Universal Music Latin.

When I got back from my spring break in beautiful Toronto, I had a lot of jobs as the pick-up and delivery girl. Tickets and packages had me running back and forth like crazy from the office in the 80-degree humid Miami weather. I had at least two every day, so it was pretty hectic. At least I got a good workout, right?

Although I did not get to go to the Ultra Festival in Miami, I did attend a Winter Music Conference panel, and was later invited to go VIP to the International Dance Music Awards. It was truly an amazing experience to watch some of my favorite dance music artists perform and present awards so close to me. I was introduced professionally to everybody as an “A&R at Universal”, not an intern. That statement made me feel so assured that I might just have the best internship ever. Later that night, I celebrated with my boss at our famous karaoke spot once again. He’s got a pretty great voice as well!

Florenza Campos: Calm After the Storm

Berklee Blogs checks in with Florenza Campos, Brazilian-born singer-songwriter, Professional Music major and freshly minted intern at Universal Music Latin.

The past few weeks have not been too eventful after the great event we had a few weeks before. I mainly did a lot of errands like exchange reports (which I am now an expert at), listening to more demos and submissions, and attending a few meetings. I had lunch with my boss at this amazing Persian place in south beach, and had another karaoke night with a few co-workers to relieve any of our stress. I love how everyone I work with is so down to earth and grounded. Everyone is equally treated with respect. The Miami weather may also play a part of putting everyone in a good mood every morning. I would much rather be in this “winter” than anywhere else.

Manuel Urgiles: Take Advantage of Your Internship

Interning at an independent hip-hop record label has given me an understanding of the nuts and bolts of a music company. I had the opportunity to view its infrastructure and there was so much going on at a very fast pace. On a typical day I was working on a newsletter to email out to 400 people, emailing singles to a couple hundred blogs, writing press releases and acquiring new fans through the internet.

In the first few weeks I was introduced to numerous social media platforms that I had not heard of before, such as Mailchimp, Brandchirp and ArtistData, which seem to be essential for getting the word out. There was also a tremendous amount of interaction with people inside and outside of the label, which gave me the opportunity to meet new people in different fields. I met producers, graphic designers, computer programmers, singers, and so many more. So what does one do when presented with so much?
