Shine On Hollywood Magazine (SOHM) is delighted to feature artists in music, film, fashion and arts. We are also highlighting those in popular culture who are making a difference in our lives.
Our magazine fulfills a niche other Hollywood magazines do not provide. Tabloid journalism and shocking revelations of infidelity or other personal indiscretions, will never be mentioned in this publication. The professional scope, experiences and advice of those featured in the periodical by hard work and discipline, offers the best reflection of a Hollywood that can shape opinion to lift the human condition. SOHM is the only publication that has the ability to change the pejorative aspects of an industry that requires introspection.
Here are the reasons why you should have SOHM tell your story:
No other magazine can give you a profound presentation with 8 to 15 pages of photos, positive intro’s, video(s), Q&A’s and social media friendly recognition that also includes IMDb and other platform credits. These elements offer a well rounded history of your accomplishments and your story can be told to the world without impediments. No other magazine nor publication will go the extra mile to share your story.
We do not cut and paste stories online nor use biographies to build your narrative. We remove the negative and focus on the positive side of your life from childhood to your current station in life.
Here’s some buzz worthy news why SOHM became one of the fastest growing magazines to ever come out of Hollywood.

“SOHM HOLLYWOOD MAGAZINE” YOU SOHM THE WORLD.”
I have been in the world of journalism for a long time and saw the gradual deterioration in reporting and communicating with the people; it went from reporting to projecting, from facts to gossip, from balance to sensationalism. I was turned off from reading the newspaper. Then you came along and touched my life. You made it your mission to bring to the world the stories of real people. Instead of news of the extraordinary rich doing ordinary things, you went to the ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Instead of taking the easy road, you took the “Road Less Traveled” and demonstrated how magnificently “real people” rise and shine. You set the standard for what journalism and reporting is all about. You have raised the bar. Thank you SOHM HOLLYWOOD MAGAZINE team for dedicating your
time and talent to what is really important in life, Goodness. ~ Dr. Aida Takla-O’Reilly, Former two-time President and current Trustee of the Hollywood Foreign Press / Golden Globe Awards. More on Aida
“IT WAS A PLEASURE TO BE FEATURED ON YOUR COVER OF SOHM AND THE ARTICLE WAS SO THOROUGH AND INTERESTING. I ENJOYED THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK IN THE INTERVIEW TO THOSE COMING UP IN THE BUSINESS WITH DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS.”
I wish you continued success with the publication and know that you are reaching many young people seeking guidance and inspiration from those who’ve trod before them. With gratitude and all best wishes. ~ Sam Harris, Singer, Actor, Writer, Director and Producer. More on Sam
“BEING ENGAGED BY YOUR MAGAZINE, SHINE ON HOLLYWOOD, AND HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO ACCEPT THE INVITATION TO BE INTERVIEWED FOR THE FEBRUARY BLACK HISTORY EDITION TRULY BOOSTED THE MESSAGE ABOUT THE WORK THAT BERKLEE CITY MUSIC IS DOING TO REACH KIDS IN UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES.” I was quite overwhelmed after reading my own story; I’ve never seen my life laid out before me in that manner. The work your team is doing to publish great stories as well as good news is commendable to say the least. Typically publications are looking for stories filled with drama and controversy to gain readers. Well, certainly there is a little drama attached to all of our stories, but SOHM focuses on the positive outcomes to those stories.” ~ J. Curtis Warner, Jr. Associate Vice President, Education Outreach, Executive Director, Berklee City Music – Berklee college of music. More on Curtis

I am a huge fan of SOHM and its mandate to share the more personal, inspirational and hope-building stories of those in the entertainment industry. I have thoroughly enjoyed the issues I’ve read and am excited to see what SOHM has in store for its second year of e-publication. I have brought issues into my classroom to share with my students as well as distributed and shared various articles with industry professionals here in Vancouver, Canada. The response has always been positive and a keen interest shown in subscribing so they may be able to read SOHM for themselves. The writers, editors and management at SOHM are the perfect balance of professional and attentive personal. I especially appreciate their penchant for taking our words and giving them a polish without losing the essence of the artist.
I wish SOHM every success and look forward to following the journey of this wonderful e-zine.

The founder, Arnold Garcia’s inspiring vision has come to life wonderfully. I can see that he and his team are dedicated to bringing the readers a quality on-line magazine that is informative, fun and readable. I was blessed to be highlighted in May and I can say that I got a lot of compliments thanks to SOHM’s style of featuring. Congratulations on your 1st year and cheers to many more great issues to be…

From new trends to new insight behind and in front of the scenes in the entertainment community, Shine On Hollywood Magazine sheds new light on all facets of this business,amongst a sea of publications that usually only focus on the top ten of what is hot.
~ Tamela D’Amico, Actress, Producer and Director
I have been fortunate enough to do many interviews in my life both “live” and written, but I have never been as honest and forthcoming as I was when Arnold Garcia interviewed me for SOHM. His questions illicit honest, thoughtful answers and since SOHM is always about solutions rather than gossip, I was inspired to share things I had never shared with anyone, much less ‘faceless readers’. SOHM challenges everyone involved with them to be the best they can be. To be kind and supportive rather than mean and competitive. Their approach is so fresh and new.
I hope someone besides me benefited from my interview. Arnold’s insightful questions most definitely took me on a path of self discovery where ego and fear have no place. Only hope and support. I am ever so grateful to have been a part of the 1st anniversary issue of SHINE ON HOLLYWOOD.
~Cynthia Manley, Singer, Songwriter, Performer and Producer
its mission of being positive, educational and meaningful, and is a truly
beneficial publication in our community.”
I had the pleasure of working with Alex and the SOHM Team and am thrilled that the magazine reflects the upbeat and considerate attitude of its staff. The article written about me by SOHM has been very influential in helping our fundraising efforts for special needs children and has brought more attention to the biographical movie that we are working on through Jeff Co. Productions. I look forward to working with SOHM in the future and enjoy watching your publication continue to grow. Shine on!

a much needed gap in the art and entertainment industry by covering stories
of real people and what inspired them.”
I cannot thank Arnold Garcia and the staff of SOHM enough for the wonderful interview they did on my life, my artwork, and my passion for soccer that was featured in the May 2013 issue. Not only was working with all of you a pleasure, but it brought me a whole new audience for not only my artwork, but for my second love, Soccer. Since I was featured in the magazine, I have not only received calls for paintings from individuals and galleries, but also from people in the community requesting private tutoring in both art and soccer. Each issue features talented people who have made a difference in the industry as well as in their own communities. The stories are inspiring leaving the reader feeing uplifted after reading each issue.
After moving from Chicago to a small town in Georgia, I felt my talents were going nowhere. I could not find work in either field and being far from the big city, my art business became stagnant. I began to question the paths I had chosen. However, once the article was published, I realized I could share my talents not only by painting and playing soccer, but by tutoring the local youth. In addition to coaching soccer for the local high school, many of the students who read the article have asked if I would tutor them in art which I found gives me as much fulfillment as doing my own paintings. This has afforded me the opportunity to share my gifts with the next generation in more ways than one so I can help them to “shine.”
The “Show Your Shine” features people like myself who have amazing stories that would remain silent, never reaching the public without your insight and great reporting. I feel honored to be featured in the May 2013 issue with so many other talented artists. Working with the staff and being a part of SOHM has reminded me of how grateful I am to be where I am today. Thank You again for inviting me to be a part of a publication that actually makes a difference!
