Felicia M. Barlow Clar has been in love with the entertainment industry since early childhood.
She began her own career in music in middle school and continued on for nearly ten years of voice lessons and theatrical performance. Gradually she moved backstage into event and film production and has come full circle in artist development and entertainment programming.
Felicia began artist development and consulting to fill the void she experienced as an aspiring performer and video producer. Nothing existed on the scale of American Idol, The Voice, or America’s Got Talent when she embarked on her career. If only she had a mentor, who knows how far she might have succeeded onstage?
Felicia is a multi-faceted creative with a wealth of expertise in marketing, budgeting, merchandising, events and video production to draw upon.
She brings her insight and experience to every assignment, both large and small. She possesses the rare, but profound combination of solid business acumen and creativity, and uses both to master her craft.
With hundreds of events to her credit, including a Presidential Inauguration, Felicia has worked in major markets including:
- Las Vegas
- Los Angeles
- San Francisco
- Washington DC
Felicia has booked headliners, including:
- Joan Jett

Felicia holds a Masters degree in Producing for Film and Video from The American University, and she has served as President of the DC chapter of Women in Film & Video.

Her two other degrees reflect her business mind: an AAS in Merchandising and Buying from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City; and a BA in history from the University of Maryland, College Park.
