The World Photographic Cup pits Team USA against the best photographers from 35 countries, and Roben Bellomo, a photographer from Carmel, has been selected as part of Team USA for 2022.

Much like the Olympics, gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to the top photographers. Winners will be announced at the WPC Awards Ceremony in Rome, Italy on May 2, 2022.

Bellomo has opened a new exhibit at his art gallery in the Village of West Clay featuring Team USA’s images. I’m certain he’d be happy to bring a couple of the images with him for an Indy Style interview if you’re interested. The exhibit will be open through the end of March at BEHN Gallery at 2149 Glebe St., Suite 100, Carmel, IN 46032.

In her love for music she has sung in choirs in school and church, and today she sang for us at Indy Style giving everyone chills! Kelsi Marie, singer/song-writer and Damon Karl, singer/song-writer filled our studio with the beautiful sounds of music filled with positive messages. Take a listen.

It was a video of her singing Etta James “At Last” that caught the attention of music industry veteran Sid “Uncle Jamz” Johnson after she was recommended by Skypp.

Her debut single with MECAP Music was “I Just Can’t” which featured saxophone work from Indy’s own Bryan Thompson (called B. Thompson nowadays). She followed that up with the pop-tinged “Shine Your Light”.

Her third single was “Bringing the Truth”, which caught the attention of the Philadelphia market. Due to her deep feelings of racial equality for all people, she wrote the very thought evoking “Freedom,” which like all of her recordings was accompanied by a music video, albeit this one was very poignant with its powerful message.

She followed that up with her current single “Underestimated”.

A lover of R&B music, when not doing music she is a professional make-up artist. She is looking forward to performing in downtown Brownsburg, Indiana on July 1st at 7 p.m. for their Summer series of ROCK THE BLOCK concerts with label-mate Damon Karl.

She is also working on her next single slated for release in July as well.

Here’s more about Damon:

It was in fourth grade that Damon decided he wanted to be a singer. At age 16 he received his first guitar as a birthday present.

Damon is an alum of Arsenal Technical High School. Has been playing guitar since the age of 16.

He was discovered at a talent show contest where the winner would get to open for singer Tank.

Veteran Grammy winning manager/songwriter/producer Sid “Uncle Jamz” Johnson discovered him at the talent contest where he was a judge and would later introduce Damon to his chief influence Indy’s own legendary Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. After that, Damon got to open a show for Babyface in Louisville, Kentucky. He has also opened for The Isley Brothers, SOS Band, Zapp and Morris Day & The Time.

Damon counts Indianapolis native son Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Tori Kelly as the two of his biggest musical inspirations.

He enjoys listening to: Babyface, Usher, Raheem DeVaughn, Louis Armstrong, Sam Cooke, Al Green, Alicia Keys, India. Arie, Tori Kelly and John Mayer. Music with passion is his favorite style to listen to.

Born under the sign of Sagittarius on December 2nd,  Damon feels his purpose in life is to stand out and succeed.

His debut single “Colors Of The World” was co-written by him and his label-mate Nut Bush. The song has a great message for these times where it seems people are so divided by race, religion and politics.

Damon’s second single release was “Beautiful Girl”, and it was mostly written by Karl himself along with music producer Rob Hittz. There is a music video for the song.

His latest single, “Love Again,” recently hit #1 in the Atlanta market. The music video was filmed in Atlanta.
