Since returning to Miami after several years in New York, former sports agent slash entrepreneur David Sugarman tells us he is launching a brand-new record label, SugarTime Records, on Tuesday. "The mission is to find that one voice from around the globe to bridge the gap of hate and unite people through music," says Sugarman, who had a bit of exposure to both of that when, in 2014, he joined with Fugees founder Pras Michel and two others to bid $2.2 billion to buy The Plaza, the Meatpacking District’s Downtown Dream Hotel and London’s Grosvenor House Hotels. The bids were rejected and Sugarman has since returned to his entertainment roots. "With this label, I am hoping to cut through the political noise and discover an international voice that will bring harmony and--eventually, I hope-- a Grammy or two. " The label, whose tagline is Music for Change, aspires to discover the next big thing while making a difference. "Music has always been the conduit to bringing people together and I think that there should be more ways to provide unique voices and talented singers, songwriters and musicians with platforms to share their gifts with the world," he said.
