Jade Novah Offers Spine Chilling Rendition of "Strange Fruit"



No stranger to this site, Jade Novah has once again delivered a cover that music lovers will forever appreciate. Often very much so in tune with whats happening in the world, Jade and producer/hubby Devin both use their platforms for more than just entertainment. This rendition of, "Strange Fruit" (originally done by Billie Holiday and later Nina Simone) is overwhelming in the best way.

Shut Up already about Beyonce's womb



As a woman, I can recall the fear of infertility lingering over my head as early as my teenage years. No, I wasn't trying to have kids at that age, but I knew even then that the inability to have them when the time came would hurt me to my core. If Im honest I still think about it too much today, even though Im still not trying to have any. According to the CDC's website, recent studies show that 12% of women ages 15-44 suffer with infertility. Thats just over 7 Million women struggling to conceive or carry a baby full term. I personally know women who have lived through miscarriages, or years of trying to conceive. It's a painful experience. It is the fundamental characteristic of womanhood to create, nurture, and birth. Young, old, black, white, rich, poor..as a woman the womb is the great equalizer. She's a part of our power as a woman. To reach a point of wanting to bring forth life, building up all of the excitement that comes with a newborn baby, only to have it stripped from you can be crippling to say the least.

MUST WATCH: Actress Ashley Judd Delivers Powerful Spoken Word Piece At Women's March on Washington! GO OFF!



I havent been blogging much lately, but I couldn't let this moment go by without doing so. Today marks an exceptional day in herstory when women (and men) all over the world (literally) are marching in protest to the inequalities that we face every day. The Women's March on Washington is happening in DC just one day after the new President took office. That is no coincidence! Trump and his disregard for the woman is the fuel behind many of the fires igniting in DC today!

Watch: President Obama's Farewell Speech Live Online



Last night our President gave his farewell address, and it was an emotional night for everyone in the room. He went back to his beloved Chicago to say his thank yous and goodbyes. President Obama tried to keep his address optimistic, hopeful as we've always seen him be, and quite personal.

#KOSIGN! Get INTO Ashley Washington's New Song & Visual For Big Mistake!




I have been fascinated by Ashley Washington since we met years ago. I think out of all of the artists I've introduced to people..Ashley has to be the one I've plugged the most.  And it's worth saying that its not just her voice, but her spirit immediately linked with mine. We're long lost sisters for sure. For years I among many have been begging Ashley for some fresh and new music. She stole our hearts with a few songs back in the myspace era, she's had a few amazing features for artists we love, but we've wanted Ashley Washington!!! And we finally got her.

With all that is happening in our country and in our world today, it does something for me when artists use their gifts and platforms as tools for change! That's exactly what two of my favorite artists have done with "The Lion's Awakening"! Joy Conaway and JK Howells are no stranger to this site, and for good reason..they are two incredible gifts to music. It's also worth mentioning that this feature is technically about more than two of my faves.. the song is co written by Brik Liam, and produced by the duo we know and love as The Gigabots! I am here for this marriage in music.

#Watch: President Obama Addresses the Democratic National Convention & The Nation as Only He Can


I don't mind at all that my blog is a sweet ode' to the brilliance, black, and beautiful that our first family is! Last night our President Barack Obama took the same stage his wife held down just a day before him. After a small intro from a supporter whose son died in service, and a tear jerking video that put all of his real work into perspective, President Obama and all of his swag stepped onto the stage.
