We had the good fortune of connecting with Clive Alves Moore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Clive, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
The road less travelled – A true director’s note I have always been a singer, actor, and dancer. They call this a triple threat in the entertainment industry, and I made that my career for 15 years fulltime on global stages and television around the world. I realized I had a huge love for the business side of the industry too, so I got my hands dirty and learnt how to how to balance being an artist and how to manage the business side of the industry as well. After I left my corporate job I needed to go back to performing and being creative. I was at a crossroad and was forced to ask myself what am I going to do to make money and how can I be in control of my artistic career? You could say I left with all intentions to start performing again fulltime and hit the road running. Then The Coronavirus pandemic started … All my dreams and career focus changed and I was stuck. For days I sat on the coach and practiced my singing. “Do I take some job I hate and continue to get poorly paid for it? or do I take a chance on ME” I asked myself. The easier choice would be to get another paying job…Or do I take a riskier path. Of course, I chose the road less travelled. ..But with the Coronavirus pandemic worldwide what? And how? When would I be free again to network and build my personal brand . Feeling vulnerable I decided to believe in myself, literally JUMP! The path not many of us decide to take, but the people that do get to experience things that they never thought were possible. I brainstormed and did a lot of online research and made meetings with multiple system functionality creators. This was the birth of FAN4ME.COM but not the beginning of its conception. That started many many years back … back in the days after musical theatre college and ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ world tour and back when I lived hand to mouth as an artist. I needed to make a new STAGE… Not just for myself but for artists and creators of ALL kinds. I needed other artists whom I know were struggling like myself to have a platform to take control of their lives again, once and for all and be paid to do what they love. Creators can now finally be happy and do work on their craft doing what they were destined to do. There is nothing more rewarding for me than to get the applause from people that hear me sing…. Them telling me I made their day or what I sang really touched and moved their soul. We together as audience and artists and creators are changing the future of the entertainment industry. Creating the biggest show venue in the world. Things will never be the same again…The show must go on. The biggest stage on earth FAN4ME.COM was born.

Putting your content on YouTube and other social platforms for free is taking away the value of your art and what you create.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
LA is one of the most exciting cities in the world. They don’t call it La La Land for nothing. Let’s start by checking into the Mondrian hotel on Sunset Boulevard and going for a cocktail by the pool at the Skybar Los Angeles. Tonight I’ve booked us musical tickets to a show at the Pantages theatre but before let’s go for dinner with a gorgeous seductive vibe with an exotic flair at Sur Restaurant & Lounge in West Hollywood. “The show was fantastic!”, but the night is far from over, let us go dance the night away at my favorite hangout ‘The Abbey’ in West Hollywood. If this is your first visit with me in LA you gonna have to take it all in and yes that picture with your favorite movie star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is a must! We have lots on the list The Hollywood Sign, Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills. Catch a comedy set on Sunset Blvd, seaside amusement park at Santa Monica Pier as the sunsets.
LA is famous for live music venues and I would suggest going to the Hollywood bowl, Teregram Ballroom, the Troubadour are just a few I have scheduled on my list.
Hiking is a must do like the Runyon Canyon and a little wine vacation and glorious drive through Napa Valley is one of my most favorite things to do in the world. We gonna end our tour today at the Bistro Don Giovanni for the most delicious meals ever.
