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
and B. Micheal and I'm looking forward to it!

Hey guys just a little peak at the cast of the most recent workshop of the Motown inspired Berry Gordy musical! We spent much time tweaking the script and singing the changes! Its gonna be a good one, I found myself play several key character, important people in Mr. Gordy's life, including his beloved sister Anna Gordy,was formerly married to Marvin Gaye, the fabulous Martha Reeves, and the tough talking, smoothly powerful Edna Anderson. Many things change during the creative process but so far it has been amazing!

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!
