Hello Good People!

Even though it is crazy hot outside, I woke up knowing it was going to be a beautiful day today…an so far so good!  And it only gets better with a fun-loving and hilarious video,  “Count To Five” featuring Gwen Bunn and Phonte from the new album, “ManMade” from Zo!.       Reminiscent of Sesame Streets in the 70′s, it is sure to put a smile on your face as well as get you moving.  :-)

Celebrating 7 Years of Black President’s Day

ThatKellieGirl at the Black President’s Day 7 Year Celebration

ThatKellieGirl was on the scene for the Black President’s Day on Thursday.  This is one of my favorite annual events.  Produced by Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi, founder of Lil SoSo Production, Black President’s Day serves as the official DC tribute to Afrobeat creator Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

Hey Good Folks.

I am still blown away by the Homegoing Service of Whitney Houston. It was intimate and heartfelt experience to glimpse into Whitney’s church roots and to see the people that she touched with her gift. 

Now, I am a person that believes that everything happens for a reason, but I kept feeling that Whitney’s death was premature and it just shouldn’t have happened.

Hey Good People!

This Saturday, The Axel F Party is celebrating its One Year Anniversary Party.  The brainchild of DJs Jahsonic, Stylus and Adrian Loving, Axel F (named after Eddie Murphy’s character from Beverly Hills Cop) is about the illest jheri curl funk, champagne soul and lazer boogie cuts from 1977 – 1987.  In addition to a killer ’80s setlist, there will be live performances by the Sexual Chocolate Band & Show (think Murphy’s character Randy Watson from Coming to America) featuring Zo!, Deborah Bond, Phonte, Ne’a Posey, and N’digo Rose.  Yeah, it’s going to be like that!

Freedom Friday: The Happy Holidays Edition

Happy Holidays Good Folks!

Let the holiday parties begin! :-) 

I am sooo looking forward to the hustle and bustle of holiday festivities.  Now, I don’t get into holiday shopping.  I actually try to avoid it by purchasing earlier in the year or on-line. However, if I need to buy a gift, I totally avoid the mall and head to local small businesses.   However, for me, the holiday season is about connecting and reconnecting with friends and loved ones.  I usually try to “set things right” before entering into the New Year.  I also take the time to give thanks and to celebrate my accomplishments for the year.    So whatever you do, don’t allow the holidays to become stressful or overwhelming for you. Figure out how you are going to live in the moment in order to fully enjoy the holiday season.     

Sending a shout out to the Alphas for their 105th Founder’s Day.  There are celebrations going on Saturday at Mood Lounge and Teatro

Othello closes out this weekend at the Folger Shakespeare Library.

And the holidays would not be complete without these classic Christmas plays.  The Washington Ballet performs The Nutcracker at the Warner Theater from December 1-24 and  A Christmas Carol is playing at the Ford’s Theater until December 31.

Enjoy your weekend!

Peace and Blessings, ThatKellieGirl

Freedom Friday: The Labor Day Edition

Hello Good People!

Happy Labor Day to all those folks who work hard for the money.  This weekend is jam-packed with some TKG approved events! :-)  We get a chance to catch up after Storm Irene kept us inside last weekend.  Whatever you decide to do, just remember to be thankful for your job.  And if you don’t like it, change your attitude or change your job (#justsaying).  There will always be challenges on the job, but it’s about how you deal with it.  I believe it’s ultimately about doing what you love.  And if you aren’t fortunate to do it from 9 to 5, then make sure you do it after 5.  You never know what doors might open.

Peace and blessings, ThatKellieGirl
