Here’s a taster of what Coco Bean will be offering on stage…

We sat down with Coco Bean aka Phil Elam to talk about this exciting opportunity and why he is the perfect choice.

Q: How do feel about qualifying in the Top 10 contestants for the annual Audacy’s Hollywood Bowl concert opening act?

CB: I’m here only because of the people who voted. On the last day of the Top-10 finals, I was out of the running at unlucky #13 — Yikes! I knew I couldn’t pull it out alone so I reached out and asked for help. At the cut off THE PEOPLE moved me all the way from #13 up to Lucky #7! (#7 is my favourite number, btw). So, how do I feel? I feel like hugging EVERRRRYBODDDYY! I am so thankful and blessed.

Q: Have you always wanted to perform at the Hollywood Bowl?

CB: In a word……YAZZZZZZZ!!!! Like so many things, you dream about stuff like that. Performing at The Hollywood Bowl is right up there with having dinner at Buckingham Palace and getting to pick the menu. But then again, isn’t that what life should always be about; daring to dream a dream and dreaming that it will one day come true.

Q: What kind of performance should the audience expect to see from Coco Bean if you win?

CB: I am a huge fan of legendary performers like Elton John, Bob Seger and Prince for their musicianship. Also, I can’t get enough of the theatrical production of performers like David Bowie & Lady Gaga. But what is most important is making sure that everyone walks away feeling like they had an incredible time. As Dr Maya Angelou said: “people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Q: What makes you the best choice for the Hollywood Bows opening act?

CB: I am the best choice for this honour because no one else will dedicate the results of this opportunity to the service of others like I will! Because no one else will give the audience a better show than I will and I will be the only one who will thank EVERYONE who voted for me by listing their name on a video screen on stage!

Q: The winner will receive $10,000. What would you do with this money?

CB: I would definitely give a chunk of it to charity. Particularly to those people who are still suffering devastation from the Corona Virus pandemic. So many people are still struggling to eat, find housing, etc. I HAVE TO GIVE BACK if honoured to receive $10,000.

Q: What do you have to say to the voters?

CB: First of all, thank you so much to everyone who has voted for me so far. We are almost home. But we have a little more road to travel together before we get there. I am already grateful to you and I will continue to be forever grateful if you walk with me a little longer. I dedicate my art and my heart to being of service. I pray that what I create and share will find a safe space with you. Because I always hold a safe space for you in my heart.

Meet Coco Bean:

Coco Bean is back with his second release “Pimp Stick”, from his sonic trilogy, which set to be another smash hit. Coco Bean is the alter ego of the award-winning, multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer and filmmaker, Phil Elam.

In March of this year, Coco Bean burst on the scenes with his debut single, “My Name is Coco Bean”. This song was a bold introduction to the fiercely independent spirit of Coco Bean. His unapologetic and triumphant attitude has connected with many new fans.

His message is clear and declares to the world that we must be proud of ourselves, no matter who we are, or where we are from. It’s no wonder his debut release has already reached over 100k streams on Spotify.

This entertaining track calls for everyone to put up their Pimp Stick! Coco Bean told us: “everyone has a pimp stick, it’s that rod of strength which is buried deep within all of us. Your Pimp Stick is that courage you have that keeps you stepping forward when everything around you is trying to tell you to give up.”

So, the next time you are faced with adversity, prejudice, ignorance or any other type of discrimination, put up your pimp stick!

Pimp Stick:

“Pimp Stick” opens with a highly humorous narrative that creates a light-hearted atmosphere and a vivid image of Coco Bean with his 24-carat pimp stick.

In true Coco Bean style, this song has a tongue in cheek, comedic streak to it. This is emphasised by catchy, witty lyrics and amusing sound effects. It’s virtually impossible to resist the temptation to sing along with Coco Bean’s anthemic chorus when he sings: “put up your pimp stick!”

The blend of uber melodic old skool hip hop vibes and electronic dance music make this track completely infectious and unforgettable. It is the perfect summer jam to add to your party playlist. Not only does it thrill listeners but, more importantly, it encourages people to find their inner strength and stand up for what is right.

This track will easily fascinate and delight any listener. If you enjoy music from artists such as Eminem and Drake then Coco Bean will fit perfectly on your party playlist.

Finally, we have discovered that Phil has signed an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for a feature film, which he would neither confirm nor deny… His lips were sealed tighter than a preacher’s wife girdle after a summer ice cream social. We cannot wait to see what this master of the arts will delight us with next.
