Freedom Friday

Emeka

Hello Good People!

I want to take this moment to say “Happy Birthday” to my wonderful husband.  He doesn’t like much fanfare and the spotlight, so I will keep it sweet and short.  I just want to let him know that he means the world to me, and I am so happy to celebrate this special day with him, especially as his wife! :-)

So happy birthday to my hubby and here’s to a great weekend!

Peace and Blessings, ThatKellieGirl :-)

Freedom Friday: The Code Red Edition

TGIF Everyone!

It is HAWT out there folks.  It is a “Code Red” alert making it very unhealthy and unsafe to be outside. (In my Frankie voice, “Code 10, Man Down! *lol*)  If you don’t have to go outside, DON’T!  At least, wait until this evening.

For this weekend, the incomparable Charlies Wilson and EnVogue will be at Constitution Hall Saturday (7/23) and Wiz Khalifa is out at Merriweather Post Pavillion on Sunday (7/24).

And check out the other happenings this weekend.

Peace,

ThatKellieGirl :-)

Sistas Who Rock The Mic: Navasha Daya

Hello Good Folks!

Last night, CASRAM Presents ended their March Women’s History Month Series with Navasha Daya, formerly of Fertile Ground.  It was such a treat!  

There are several things I love about Navasha as a performer….her uplifting and thoughtful lyrics,  her jazzy and melodic voice, her soulful and infectious dancing, and her powerful representation of women.  She also gets love for being a fellow midwestern. (Ohio represent! :-)  )  

Navasha is also a woman of purpose.  A committed reiki master teacher, spiritual counselor and ordained minister, she established the Spiritual Arts and Science Institute, which designs and administers mental, emotional, and holistic health services, workshops, seminars, classes, mediation, private sessions, and women’s healing circles.

Navasha is currently touring with Zap Mama and embarking on her first solo project.  I am looking forward to hearing more of her in the future.

Check out Live @ Ben’s Next Door every Tuesday night at Ben’s Next Door.  It is the D.C. home of local and national independant artists.  Next Door provides the venue and the audience for artists to showcase themselves, their music and their talents to a new audiencetalented artists are showcased.  And it’s FREE!  Hosted by W. Ellington Felton

I got a new camera, so enjoy some my photos from the event! :-)
