(email from NABFEME)
I regret that I have very sad news. We have lost one of our NABFEME Atlanta family members, Krys Copeland . Krys passed away on July 15th, at the Henry County Medical Center. She had been battling stomach cancer and is now with the Lord. She had 2 sons, Patrick & Dewight, that she leaves behind. She will be greatly missed by the NABFEME ATL family. Krys was instrumental in our “Film Salon” and “Women Who Jam” events and provided PR support as a core group member. Her spunky spirit will live on. If you ever came in contact with Krys, she was one who always stated she loved and served GOD! Details for all that would like to pay their respects: Homegoing Services will be Saturday, July 26, 2008.

In the fast-paced environment of entertainment media, Krys Copeland , has emerged as a leader in defining urban culture – embarking on an ambitious strategy to bring focus to America’s fastest growing consumer segment, our youth. Under Copeland ‘s esteemed leadership, 3:16 Media Group (formerly BOSS Media Group) has clearly emerged as an influential marketing and communications firm and a dominant force in urban entertainment. A skilled professional with nearly 15 years in the music industry; specializing in event planning, lifestyle marketing, publicity and promotions, Copeland is well regarded among recording artists, industry executives and veterans in the business of music.
Copeland has personally directed the company’s incredible growth over the past 10 years, evolving from an online magazine to a communications network spanning radio, television and the World Wide Web! She has worked with a number of national recording artists, record labels and celebrities during this tenure, including: Angie Stone, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Paula Campbell, Alicia Keys, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Lil Kim, Island Def Jam, Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records, J Records, Jive Records, Bad Boy Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Sony Records, Epic/Columbia, and Violator Records, to name a few.
In 2004, Copeland accepted God’s call on her life – vowing to use her time, talent, experience and resources to advance the Kingdom by any means available. The company was restructured and renamed 3:16 Media Group, a subsidiary of 3:16 Worldwide Inc. BOSS Magazine was retired and the company launched Fusion Magazine – an equally edgy, faith-based publication. Power 100 was expand ed, and several other product lines were added to the fold: Spirit of Faith (a self-empowerment/support group for women in crisis); Trinity Publishing Group (distributor of Power Moves magazine, the official publication of Power 100), The Cartel (faith-based youth ministry and community service organization), and her latest endeavor, Battleground, a monthly showcase of new artists and emerging acts, hosted at key venues in and around Atlanta.
