Two years ago, Decatur entrepreneur Derick Halliman was named Rising Star of the Year by Black Enterprise magazine for his premium water bottle company Mist H2o.
Halliman is expanding his brand as a sponsor for Mist Live concert series, which features R&B, neo-soul and funk artists. The concert series this Saturday will feature longtime Atlanta singer Joi, singer-songwriter Res (who makes up Idle Warship with Talib Kweli and Graph Nobel), SolFactor, and spoken word poet Queen Sheba, who will MC for the night. DJ Tabone will also provide music.
Doors open at 9 p.m. at 595 North Lounge at 595 North Ave., Atlanta. Tickets available for $25 to $45 at www.mistlive.com.
