Irie Girl: Saycon Sengbloh & Katori Hall's Newest Play

This week has been a ton of fun with alot of hard work. I am missing my family dearly during this holiday season so I'm sending love to Georgia and New Jersey!Thanks to Marty Gould Cummings and Anthony Hollock I had so much fun raising money for the Ali Forney Center and had a ball singing with new band members, on the same bill with Nicholas Ryan Gant, Jahi Kearse, and Roderick Covington thanks to the help of Charles Browning the show at Nectar was a success. Special thanks to Dahgrib! An announcement has also gone out regarding my participation in Katori Hall's new play, "Hurt Village" premiering in New York in February! I'm looking forward to doing a new and challenging role and excited to work with Miss. Patricia McGregor and I can't believe the show currently boasts 3 former students of Freddie Hendricks, Tri-Citie Highschool and YEA, myself along with Godspell's Joaquina Kalukango and Amari Cheatom along with the awesome Tony Award winning Tonya Pinkins whom I just saw in Milk Like Sugar! This show touches on some serious topics including the treatment of U.S. army vets post war and the effects of regentrification on a southern project apartment complex and its raucous residents. It's definitely a character that people have not seen me do. Along with that I'm thrilled to announce the Irie Girl: Saycon 2012 Calendar is now available on with photos by Asantewaa Ricks and photo editing by Anthony Stewart, set up through Cafepress. We had so much fun shooting the calendar along with promo videos! Check them out.  My hope is that this is another opportunity for followers of the music and shows can enjoy, fun to create and inspiring. I ask that friends and family please share a store link among your friends and cohorts to help support independent artists. The Saycon Online Boutique features an Everday Warrior journal and also other calendars and t-shirts that are great for making 2012 the best it can be! My prayer is that it will be amazing for you and your family! Shine in 2012!

Everyday Warriors: Monica & Feeding America project

Used by permission
For those of you who don't know I was born and raised in Georgia! I have Liberian roots on my dad side but I hail from College Park, GA, Old National East to be exact! Showtay! Anyway, I currently make my home in Brooklyn, NY but I keep up with artists from back home. So, I saw College Park, GA native and R&B star Monica on Wendy Williams and I was so excited to hear about her new album and reality show and as a fan of hers it was a great interview. Years ago my friend Khalid and I would sit and sing the Boy is Mine over and over again with stereo turned up, the song blasting on repeat! Anyway, Monica is still at it, making new music and has a great cause to represent. Its called Feeding America! I was inspired by her growth and her life in terms of having dealt with so many ups and down in her personal life. She is truly an extraordinary Everyday Warrior! I want to spread the word for the holiday season that Monica mentioned how you can help feed hungry children. There's so many children right here in America who don't have access to food daily. Let's all take a moment to donate today. You wouldn't believe $1 feeds 8 people! We can put a stop  to child hunger bring awareness many kids in the U.S. go with out meals daily. Click the link below to help!

I'll make a donation and be a child feeding warrior today!

Shout out to all the everyday warriors!

Milk Like Sugar

Milk like sugar! Milk, milk like sugar! Finally, I got out of the house and saw the show. You know how it is when you're waiting on something, waiting for time, waiting for people, waiting for money, just waiting to go see a show and somehow you forget because life sort of takes over and then you turn around and the show has closed already! Well that didn't happen to me, on a whim I called my friend Nicole and we went out to see Milk Like Sugar. Tickets were available we made it happen. I'm shown above with the the cast. If you don't know, the show written by Kirsten Greenidge, is a play about a trio of young ladies who decide to make a pact to have babies while still in highschool, the young men and friends, and mother involved in their lives . I took in this show that was deeply anxious inspired by true events and well acted by friends and cohorts. Starring the lovely Angela Lewis, Cherise Boothe and Nikiya Mathis as the three naive and scheming teenagers along with young men J. Mallory-McCree, LeRoy McClain, and the awkward friend played by Adrienne C. Moore. Milk Like Sugar is a small play that makes a big statement, its truly exciting to see all this young talent onstage and to witness the hard working cigarette smoking genius of the exquisite Tonya Pinkins as the matriarch of the piece.. On a side note my good friend and "Hair" revival cohort, Nicole Lewis and I happily found ourselves seated behind Heidi Griffiths and the ever smiling Jordan Thaler, the casting directors for the NY Public theater. They looked on us with the twinkling eyes of proud parents as the 4 of us reminisced on how casting a little 3 day 40th anniversary "Hair"concert lead to Tony award winning stint on Broadway , London and a National tour. Our memory was cut short when the lights dimmed and sound of Beyonce "Run the World Girls" theme started pumping from the speakers as the 3 highschool divas in training started us on a journey. I enjoyed the show having recently read another play by the author, and I look forward to more of her work!
Peace ya'll,
ps- I've begun working on a new online boutique full of fun items to raise funds for upcoming projects look out for them and the launch of a new youtube page dedicated to all the people who've been bitten by the theater bug!

Things started nicely for me this week, in that I've been writing new songs, and
have great friends in town this week! Its pretty amazing, my girl Day Hill of
Buddhaflyy and her whole team included her business partner Keisha Mackie-Coleman came up from Atlanta to do the Mychael Knight show on Saturday night. The quality of his clothing is amazing, I hope to get something made by him asap! The show was
flawless and makeup was beautiful and the evening was so much fun! My friend
@CharlesBrowning met me at the soho event fresh from another show his cousin
Olivia was in. She's an up and coming model, the 3 of us have been kickin' it
since fashion week began. I won't front, I had the ultimate fan-out moment when I
realized Trina was sitting across from me on the front row! LOL everyone knows
me for singing love songs or doing theater but I'm from the dirty south and
Trina is one of my favs! Also in the house was celebrity hair stylist Terrence Davidson, VIBE editor Daytwon Thomas, and supermodel, Jessica White, who wore the finale look on the run way. Coming up I'll be attending Edwing D'angelo

Facebook followers please visit to see more blogs like this:

Its been so much fun linking with my old "Wicked" buddy Marty Thomas! As many of you know I was in Wicked for 4 years and Marty was one of the coolest people in the cast! We've stayed in touch all these years. I even recorded my initial idea for the upcoming single "Warrior" at his home studio. He's been super, always supportive and hooking me up with the most fun gigs singing at various clubs and dinners, introducing me great people. He is the host of "Marty Thomas presents Diva at Industry" a popular gay spot in midtown Manhattan. I tried his Diva Gaga shades for kicks!!! I've had a ball singing there, testing out my new singles and serving up a little Color Purple for the nostalgia, honey! Hair alumnus Anthony Hollock was there and my friend Asantewaa and I had a ball hanging out backstage and enjoying other people's voices, costumes, and antics!

Nigerian Reunion: Saycon Sengbloh & Omotola Jalade

Its been a busy few weeks we attended the annual Nigerian Reunion in Orlando, Florida. There I performed Upside Down from Grammy award nominated Original Cast Album of Fela and I also sang a new version of Sorrow, Tears, and Blood ( My highschool friend and singer extraordinaire Clinton Harris stopped by! Between performances there was fun in the sun, crazy onstage antics, and lots of questions from the Nigerian youth about the Fela Broadway production. All I can say is see for yourself what a moving piece it is, as it continues to tour the U.S. The highlight of the evening was meeting Omotola Jalade!

Macdella Cooper Foundation Luncheon

There's no time like the present to make plans and I've been making big ones. One of the most exciting ventures I see coming forward will be more work with the Macdella Cooper foundation. I met Macdella Cooper a few months ago and performed in her La'Africana program a fundraiser for her school located in Liberia, West Africa. And god willing there will be more. Thanks to some really great artists who are lending their time, skill, and patience I will soon be presenting new songs, new music videos, and more live performances in the weeks and months to come. On a day that included meetings with all of them I started off at a small luncheon that featured some amzing people who intend to make change, each in his/her own way in Africa.
