Join us in an online media press conference with Grammy-Award® nominated singer and actor Tyrese Gibson. He is the author of the new book HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY. Part memoir, part inspirational guide, he will talk briefly with Linda Duggins, Director of Multicultural Publicity of Hachette Book Group, about some of the most intimate details of his life and his desire to impact our youth. He will then answer questions from reporters and bloggers. The online press conference will be hosted by BlogTalkRadio and will last one hour. Tyrese Gibson’s career began when he won a talent show at the age of fourteen. His appearance in a 1995 Coca-Cola advertisement, singing the phrase “Always Coca-Cola” led to wide recognition. Tyrese’s four albums have sold almost three million copies. Making a transition into film, he has starred in Baby Boy (2001), 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009). This spring and summer, Gibson will be in Fast and Furious Five and Transformers 3. HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY (Grand Central Publishing Hardcover; $24.99) is due in stores on April 7th. Kirkus Reviews praises, “…the author was obviously born with wisdom many others aren't fortunate enough to possess—the knowledge to recognize that he could and wanted to be more, and the inner strength to make it happen.” Gibson will have signing events in Little Rock, Washington, DC, New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta.
