Latin Grammy Award-winning Recording Artist Daddy Yankee Named Staree Celebrity Ambassador


ORLANDO, FL. (Top40 Charts/ IZEA Official Website) IZEA, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IZEA), the world leader in Social Media Sponsorship, announces Daddy Yankee as the newest ambassador for its Staree photo and video sharing platform. Daddy Yankee joins Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson and Mario Lopez in contributing exclusive photos, videos and updates to Staree, in addition to endorsing the platform in various marketing and public relations efforts.

Hailing from Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee is an international recording artist known for his Spanish-speaking, global club sound that blends dance and vocoder with Caribbean beats. He was named 'Urban Artist of the Decade' by Billboard magazine and has had several number one hits on the Billboard Latin and Latin Pop Songs charts. Daddy Yankee has his own record label, El Cartel Records.

Yankee was previously named one of the '100 Most Influential People' by Time Magazine. He currently has over 3.4 million Twitter followers and 12.4 million Facebook fans subscribed to his updates.

Daddy Yankee's Staree profile can be found at http://staree.com/daddyyankee.
"Staree represents the next big thing in social media," said Daddy Yankee. "Facebook and Twitter are great, but they don't let you easily monetize your fan base. Staree is designed to help social media stars, big and small, connect with brands and make money through advertising. I like the idea so much I wanted an equity stake in the company."

Daddy Yankee received 800,000 shares of IZEA restricted stock in connection with his services as a Staree ambassador. "Daddy Yankee is a Latino cultural icon," said Ted Murphy, Founder and CEO, IZEA. "We are thrilled to have him as a Staree ambassador and a shareholder of IZEA. His strong roots in the Latin community and crossover appeal make him an ideal partner as we look to expand our footprint in the Latino market."

Staree allows users to post photos and videos from their mobile device or desktop, and share them with friends through Facebook and Twitter. Users make money from display advertising targeted to their content and product placement in photos and videos.
