Christine CeCe Counts
A military brat that sees the world with eyes wide open, started her event planning days in high school as she put together all the proms, dances, and prep rallies; little did she know that it would turn into a career. With the combination of her love to create and compose events she got her foot into the entertainment world at 99.1 KGGI radio station in Riverside, CA., starting as a street team member but eventually becoming Promotions Director. Being driven to expand her experience of coordinating concerts, club events and on- air promotions she took her talents to 100.3 THE BEAT in Los Angeles. This is where her free spirit and desires truly opened up a whole new world as her ability to make things happen did not go unnoticed. During her stint at THE BEAT, Steve Harvey was the morning show host. Mr. Harvey and his manager/business partner Rushion McDonald took note of her work ethic and ability to get things done. When Steve Harvey left the radio station to start his own syndicated morning radio show, soon after CeCe Counts became a part of his team.
As the Production Coordinator for The Steve Harvey Radio Network and his production company NU-OPP Inc., CeCe synchronized all of the morning show’s live on location broadcast across the U.S. and abroad, along with booking and taking charge of Mr. Harvey’s comedy tour. This gave her the knack to arrange and increase her knowledge in the event world by having to do it through emails and phone calls as she networked with several venues and vendors across the country. CeCe also is one of the major players for the annual Steve Harvey Hoodie Awards weekend in Las Vegas for the past 5 years. Putting together the Midnight Comedy Jam, VIP After Party and the Charity Beach Party has made her a staple for assisting in making it a lively weekend for thousands of people to enjoy.
Her history gave her the confidence to step out on her own. CeCe still works for Steve Harvey and the Hoodie Awards but as an independent contractor because again, her moving forward force has lead her to leap out into the world for new experiences. This brought her to Diann Valentine. She had it set in her mind that she would work with her! If you want to be the best you have to learn from the best. It took over a year of corresponding with Diann which brought her the opportunity to be a part of the super fabulous team that makes dreams happen on I Do Over.
CeCe Counts’ believes in making all her dreams happen and knows she has only begun. In the meantime, what she loves the most is seeing all her efforts bringing elation to those she creates fantasies for and to see the delight in all the faces that walk away from her events with a lifetime of memories!
