Singer Devin Johnson's DEVINaire Entertainment is hosting the first event of the Social Connection at 9 p.m. July 17 at After 5, 3709 Gentian Blvd.
"This promises to be a one of most anticipated series of networking events to ever hit the Columbus, Ga. and the Tri-City area," Johnson said.
Johnson, a Hardaway High School graduate, is currently attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston. First CD on the Universal/Motown label is expected to be released later this summer.
The July 17 event is $5, and you must be 21 or older to attend.
"Pull out your business cards and come party with people we work with to make our dreams come true," Johnson said.
