Featured Session: It Starts on TikTok: Discovering Your Audience

Mar 18, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

This session will discuss how TikTok creates space in the creator economy for artists to own their narratives. Sadie Jean will chat with Corey Sheridan about their success on the community-driven video platform and its impact on her artistry. Sadie Jean, the 19-year-old Orange County native’s first-ever song “WYD Now?” has become a certified sensation on the app, thanks to the power of the #OpenVerseChallenge — a TikTok format that invites other creators to duet with her during an instrumental opening on her song.
