They say agencies in the entertainment industry need grit, guts, and a whole lot of passion for succeeding. TCA Entertainment has consistently been marked as an agency developing artists to the next level and toward success. And everyone would attribute this success to the man behind the agency, Antonio Moorman. Before making a name for himself, he looks back at how he went from being a former US Navy to becoming an emerging music industry mogul.
Antonio came to Georgia after ten years of being in the US Navy. Believe it or not, he had nothing left to himself but a little hope to survive and hopefully turn his life around. Without a doubt, after getting an offer as a teacher, he immediately accepted the job and navigated his way through the public school system. Little did he know that it was the beginning of a lifelong journey of inspiration and success.
During his time in school, he would go out of his way to mentor high school students and bond with them through music. For Antonio, he wanted to go beyond just encouraging his students. After realizing the potential most of his students had, he wanted to support them as much as he could. So he used his own money to let his students record in a studio and allowed them to get creative and off the streets.
That is how TCA Entertainment was born. Antonio Moorman began to manage students who showed a real interest in pursuing a career in the entertainment arts. With the help of the connections he made in the music industry, TCA Entertainment started putting on their own shows. However, one of the struggles he had to go through to take the agency to the next level was having enough funds. As a teacher, his own money was no longer enough to keep it going. As someone who does not give up easily, Antonio and TCA Entertainment would, later on, get themselves a distribution deal through Roc Nation and Universal Music Group. This then propelled the agency to even greater heights.
“I am most proud that my company has come so far in the past few years, to the point that we are able to deal with major artists and major labels,” Antonio says. It is through his tenacity and hard work that allowed them to be where they are now. Furthermore, this also goes to everyone who believed in what Antonio and TCA can offer to the world that this has become possible.
TCA stands for Take Charge Always, and Antonio believes in this mission wholeheartedly. He only began with a dream and a desire to help aspiring artists to move forward. Indeed, with his relentless pursuit of becoming the next big thing, Antonio stays true to why he does what he does, and that is to make a difference in the lives of those that can’t make one for themselves.
