Heartbreaking News ~ Tay Watts

Bad news is never easy to accept, and it's even more difficult to communicate in any form. However, we learned today that Houla Entertainment artist, Tay Watts, was pronounced missing late Sunday evening after falling off the Crystal Pier in San Diego. The Coast Guard and Search/Rescue teams had been searching since, until this afternoon when they called off the search without successfully locating Tay.

For any of you that have had the pleasure of meeting Tay and listen to the passion and love he poured out through his music, you know what a truly nice and talented young man he was....he will be missed by so many. We are obviously stunned in having to come to terms with this heartbreaking news, for Tay became one of Houla's "family" members shortly after he emailed me in the summer of 2016. As many of you know, our artists become family and this makes any loss especially hard for me and all of the Houla family.

Please, in your own way, say a prayer for Tay, for his family, and all of us at Houla as well that they somehow find peace through this difficult time.

Houla Entertainment Named 2017 Midwest Agency of the Year

Houla Entertainment is both proud and honored to be awarded the 2017 APCA Midwest Agency of the Year. 

Matt accepted the award, thanking the student programmers and advisers for working with Houla as well as APCA for working so hard for everyone.

"We are honored to have been selected for this award in 2014 and here again in 2017. We really appreciate the trust and collaboration of ALL the schools in working with us. Without APCA facilitating these successful conferences, Houla wouldn't have the opportunity to showcase our diverse talent and none of this would be possible. Thank you, everyone! We look forward to more great things ahead" Lee said after learning of the award.
