Timbaland, the Multi-Platinum, Grammy Award-Winning Super-Producer and Artist, To Headline at the 2023 Global Wellness Summit

The musical mastermind, with more top-ten hits than the Beatles or Elvis Presley, will discuss his extraordinary wellness journey and new wellness music projects in partnership with Myndstream in a keynote interview with Andy Coulson, host of the “Crisis What Crisis?” podcast

Miami, FL – October 4, 2023 -The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the most prestigious conference for the $4.4 trillion business of wellness, today announced that Timbaland, one of the greatest music producers of the 21st century and the genius behind countless hits that have sold millions of copies, will be featured in a keynote conversation onstage at the 17th-annual Summit taking place in Doha, Qatar November 6-9.

Dubbed the Emperor of Sound, Timbaland has over 18 Grammy nominations, four Grammy wins and 200+ ASCAP Music Awards. His indelible imprint is stamped on an extraordinary number of hits by some of the world’s most successful artists, including Jay-Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” and “Big Pimpin,” Justin Timberlake’s “Sexy Back” and “Cry Me A River,” Aaliyah’s “One In A Million,” Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On” and “Work It,” Ginuwine’s “Pony” and One Republic’s “Apologize.” He has produced hits for Kanye West, Bryson Tiller, Madonna, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Sam Smith, Maluma, Nelly Furtado, Keri Hilson, Brad Paisley, Coldplay, Nickelback, The Fray, Destiny’s Child, Ludacris, Jodeci, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Alicia Keys, and more. He’s also the author of two books and an entrepreneur, who founded his own music label Mosley Music (which has sold over 40 million albums and 50 million singles), and co-founded two influential music platforms, Verzuz and Beatclub.

Despite his dizzying list of accomplishments (see his bio here), Timbaland has suffered intense challenges, and credits his journey into wellness with saving him. He will share his story of vulnerability, transformation and hope on the Summit stage in an interview with Andy Coulson, award-winning journalist and host of the podcast Crisis What Crisis?. The podcast is a collection of personal, inspiring conversations with crisis survivors–whether entertainment celebrities, politicians, businesspeople or sports stars–about being at the sharp end of crisis and the lessons learned when life unravels.

“My personal journey into the world of wellness has been a profound experience, one that’s reshaped my life in ways I never imagined,” said Timbaland. “Through wellness, I discovered a path to personal growth and inner peace. This transformation has inspired me to pay it forward to the world through my music, and through my partnership with Myndstream, in hope that I can positively impact the lives of others. I’m excited to share my wellness journey and vision of music-as-wellness with Summit delegates.”

“I can think of no better way to embody the theme of this Summit—A Time of Transformation—than to hear firsthand the story of Timbaland’s personal journey, from the challenges he’s faced in his life, to how embracing wellness brought about a stunning transformation,” said Nancy Davis, chief creative officer and executive director at GWS. “We are so honored to have him, and he joins other high-profile celebrities at the Summit, including the world’s greatest gymnast Simone Biles and HRH Princess Tatiana Blatnik of Greece, who are using their powerful megaphones to broadcast the wellness message across the world.”

Timbaland will also discuss his new partnership with Myndstream, a leader in wellness music that brings art and science together to create music that has a real impact on the health and wellbeing of the listener. The Timbaland x Myndstream projects will combine the power of music with the principles of wellness to create a unique and transformative experience. Timbaland notes: “These projects are designed to help people find balance through wellness at a global scale.”

“We could not be more excited and honored to be partnering with Timbaland, one of the greatest talents in music history, to collaborate on a slate of new wellness music projects,” said Freddie Moross, Myndstream founder and CEO. “He brings a unique perspective and sound to wellness music, he challenges all preconceptions of what wellness means, and will bring the power of this genre of music to a whole new generation of listeners.”
