Tammy McCrary Co-Chairman

Tammy McCrary is a powerhouse and a true visionary. She began her career in the entertainment business as co-founder of Creative Image, an image consulting firm for entertainers. Focusing on music, she developed and managed the group, Pretty In Pink, securing them a deal with Motown Records and executive producing their debut album, Wake Up. By 1995, as fate would have it, Tammy took the leap to become manager for her sister, Chaka Khan. Subsequently, the sisters co-executive produced Epiphany for Warner Brothers Records.

Out of their passionate, shared vision to better the lives of women and children at risk, Chaka and Tammy co-founded the Chaka Khan Foundation in 1999. As the managing partner of Chaka Khan Enterprises, Tammy is creatively branding Chaka Khan. The first of Chaka Khan branded products outside of the music sector is a line of gourmet chocolates, Chakalates, now sold in Neiman Marcus stores nationwide and a book of her memoirs, Through The Fire published by Rodale Books. In 2004, Tammy and Chaka launched Earth Song Records and teamed together as Executive Producers and A&R and released its debut CD Classikhan in partnership with AGU/Sanctuary/BMG to rave reviews.

Tammy is a veteran dealmaker and producer, who has mastered both the creative and corporate sides of the music industry. She strives to see her vision of empowerment and growth realized in creative expression and philanthropic endeavors.
