Breaking Barriers in the Music Industry: Terry Henderson's Journey as a Black Entrepreneur



Meet Terry Henderson, a Chicago native who is the Founder and Artist Manager of TwelveThirty Entertainment. Henderson is a creative, educator, and producer with an impressive background in opera, composition, and teaching. He also holds a Master of Science in Entertainment Business from Full Sail University, making him the perfect recipe for an artist manager. He manages several acts, including Issadora Ava, Boy Maj, iToldLexi, and Lex Cole, through his company.

Henderson is known for his perseverance and resilience. He has faced tough times throughout his journey and achievements. In 2006, Henderson lost his brother, Johnny “Chadd,” in a terrible car accident. The loss of his best friend and role model was a huge blow, but thirteen-year-old Henderson channeled his energy and began composing beautiful music to soothe himself. In those moments between the notes, an idea was born, and TwelveThirty Entertainment was created.

In addition to his work in the music and entertainment industry, Henderson is also a person of color who operates in predominantly white spaces. He has faced instances where he is judged, misidentified, and labeled based on his appearance instead of his experience, talent, or knowledge. Henderson believes in the age-old saying "don't judge a book by its cover" and strives for excellence and a well-deserved seat at the table where people like him are usually stepped on or over.

Despite the challenges, Henderson is well on his way to becoming a prominent figure in the music and entertainment industry. If you're interested in working with Henderson or his clients, visit to connect.
