The Reminders are a rare and remarkable musical duo seamlessly blending soulful sounds and roots music with insightful messages and thoughtful lyrics. The group consists of Brussels-born emcee Big Samir and Queens-born emcee/vocalist Aja Black, a collective creative force that's hard to beat. Big Samir weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French/English flow, displaying his street-smart credibility in both his lyrics and cool demeanor. This is beautifully complimented by Aja Black’s confident delivery, diverse cadences, and unique vocal stylings.
The duo engage with students regarding college planning, athletic and academic scholarships, investing and 529 plans, entrepreneurship, S.M.A.R.T. Goals, dealing with negative emotions that hinder success, credit scores and debunking the hype of overnight success as an athlete or musician.

"The group was very hype and motivating. They got me all happy and wanting to dance along with them. It’s so fun, and I was not expecting them to talk about money and how to budget. They taught me to always make a plan and plan out how you're going to spend your money."
