Lisa Cortes Booking Agency Profile

An accomplished film and music producer, Lisa Cortes has a special talent for giving light to expressive voices not often heard and stories not often told. After reading Sapphire’s novel Push in 1996, Cortes was tremendously moved by the powerful message and knew it had to be translated to the big screen. The result was 2009's captivating hit film Precious, which received six Academy Award nominations and two wins. Aligned with Cortes’s mission of instigating and propagating cutting-edge African American culture and issues through the arts to promote change, she sold her vision of Sapphire’s book to director Lee Daniels. She then worked for four years to convince Sapphire to transform the novel Push into the film Precious. Not only known as a main catalyst behind the film, Cortes was also a driving force in the music industry as one of the handful of people who launched Def Jam Records during the golden age of hip-hop..
