Saycon Sengbloh and Patti Labelle in Fela!

I'm jumping for joy for what happened this year! One of my favorite singers in the world Patty Labelle joined the cast of Fela and there I was singing with Miss. Labelle every night! Everyone asks what was it like to work with Patty Labelle? She was a pleasure to work with! My favorite thing was seeing what shoes she'd wear to the theater everynight. I also made friends with her hair stylist and longtime friend Miss Norma. Norma is responsible for all those famous "Hair-doos" Patty is known for! I hope to keep in touch with Patty and her crew!

SAYCON in VIBE magazine!

Hi Everyone,

Its been a while and I have alot of catching up to do! During the last few months so much has happened and I have yet to blog about any of it! I've collected sooo many photos and little stories to tell about what's happening in my life and I look forward to getting it all blogged out! One of the most exciting things is that I'm currently featured in Vibe magazine (twice)! They did a great article and pictorial on Fela! on Broadway and there's also a fun article about the new Minx nail trend that features my hands. Special shout out to Edwing D'angelo for dresses, Mackenzie for styling, and Korto Momolu for the jewelry I wore during the video interview! If you haven't seen the magazine it's the Juice issue with 2 covers, one featuring Eminem and Dr. Dre and the other featuring Diddy, Janelle Monae and Rick Ross! Blessings to all!

Hugs and Kisses,

It was thrilling to know that Femi Kuti was in the house! he seemed to genuinely enjoy our take on his father's legacy and his father's music. I can imagine it must be surreal to witness someone portraying your father and his life onstage!

Saycon is "Accidental" Cover girl of New York Times best seller!

So after many rumors and questions and "big foot sightings" the search is over! One of my friends has found proof that I was indeed on the cover of a book! Ha ha, apparently a stock footage shot of me modeling as a business woman a while back has wound up on the cover of the 2009 edition of Connie Bricoe's New York Time's best seller "Big Girls Don't Cry", a novel. I always wanted to be on a romance cover in a big fluffy dress, well soon come the fluffy dress, but for now check me out on the cover of Big Girls Don't Cry"! Now if only I could be like the character on the book!

Saycon in Paper Magazine Winter Issue!

A few months ago I had a shoot with Paper Magazine but so much has been going on I forgot to blog about it! Please pick up a copy of the winter issue before it leaves the newstand. Mariah Carey is on the cover!

Fela! Cast in the Recording Studio!

Finally, the Broadway cast of Fela! has begun recording the soundtrack to the show! After a long week of performances, we headed into the studio on our show night off to lay the vocals and live band music of the Fela!. Soon people will be able to purchase our versions of some of the most exciting songs composed by Fela Kuti! Pretty exciting, since last year I had the great opportunity to record what would end up the Grammy nominated soundtrack for the Hair revival! The Fela album is to be released in June 2010!
