On The Hub: Majors & Minors

posted by Nell Minow

Grammy® Award-winning superstar (Black Eyed Peas) and Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning Jennifer Hudson have joined an all-star lineup of industry artists and professionals serving as mentors for The Hub TV Network’s new original reality music series “Majors & Minors,” premiering Friday, September 23 (8 p.m. ET).

Over the course of the TV season, “Majors & Minors” follows the journey of 12 talented young performers, ages 10-16, as they are mentored by some of the biggest and most successful artists and coaches in the music industry. The Hub TV Network, a destination for kids and their families, is a joint venture of Discovery Communications and Hasbro, Inc. 


Music star (and “Black Eyed Peas” founder) and singing/acting sensation Jennifer Hudson join a star-studded team of previously announced top musical artists as mentors (“Majors”) in the ground-breaking series. Also bringing invaluable music experience and star power are Adam Lambert, Brandy, Leona Lewis, Colbie Caillat, Avril Lavigne, Sean Kingston, Jordin Sparks, Claude Kelly, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and Mike Posner.  Each mentor will provide guidance to the gifted young cast as they begin their roads towards individual stardom. While no one is ever voted off, one lucky “star-in-the-making” will claim the ultimate prize of a recording deal with Boardwalk Records/RCA Records and an opportunity to be featured in a cross-country concert tour.


In the premiere episode, viewers are introduced to the 12 cast members as they participate in the nationwide casting call process along with more than 40,000 young hopefuls. Selections of the final 12 were made by some of the music industry’s top professionals. R&B singing sensation songwriter Brandy guest stars as the premiere episode reveals the back stories that led each of the kids to this point on their journey to their dreams. Brandy also serves as a series mentor and producer on “Majors & Minors.”

The first original track from “Majors & Minors,” titled “One World” will be available on iTunes and all digital retailers beginning Tuesday, September 20. “One World”, which is performed by the “Majors & Minors” cast is featured in the premiere episode and was written by Evan “Kidd” Bogart, Justin Gray, David “DQ” Quinones, Nikola Bedingfield and the “Majors & Minors” cast.
