Yes so here again.. this is exactly why that "they sing black" or "they sing white" is juust not gonna work anymore! I MEAN this voice is amazing. Some of you may have seen Karmin's covers of popular records spanning in genres from pop to hip hop, but this is her on Ellen singing an original and I think she was amazing!

Please next time you see my brother Justin (Jay) please thank him for sharing this video. & If in fact you never get to see him in person.. shoot him a tweet @JayMcSwain..... I CAN NOT TAKE THIS VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!! PWaaahahaaa
Ok! The whole WORLD awaits new anything from Bilal :) This song and video are beautiful and profound. Bilal takes a moment out of his career to actually make a record and video that extends beyond us loving it.
The video is dedicated to autism awareness and the effort to encourage early diagnosis. I feel like this was an epic move on Bilals part being that autism effects SO many of our children and we know as a whole so little about it. Id love to interview Bilal and see what his reasoning was behind this song and video. Love this.
Back in December Phylicia was declared missing and Im thinking many people just brushed it off as another case of a young girl running away. We didnt hear much about it. Now almost 5 months later her body is found floating in a river 40 miles from where she was last seen.

There’s no beef in a recent decision by a law firm to drop a lawsuit against Taco Bell.
This week, the fast food chain gained a victory through the action against the firm named Beasley Allen that questioned the beef content of the filling in the tacos and burritos.

Yesterday I went out to Toya's first book signing to show support for one of your fave people :) Toya was gorgeous and gracious. She briefly sat and gave an overview of the book, then answered a few questions. Young and old came out to Barnes & Noble to meet her and hear her speak on her first book at her first signing. She did great! Id purchased 2 of the books for 2 of my mentees who are big fans, but I had those books mailed to them so I never actually got to read it. I came home and read the book in a short time & I must again say how much heart & grace was put into it. Major kudos to Ms. Toya as an author.. you diid that :) Check out more plus exclusive pics when you read more of this post!
Jill is one of my favorite storytellers! She's an incredible vocalist yes.. but she's SUCH a storyteller to me! Every time I hear one of her songs I feel like Im at circle time in kindergarten again! Plus I think she's SO pretty! Peep the more & the behind the scenes video featuring "Shame" after you read more!

Ummm...Not quite sure what this is about. Ive seen many videos of different shows of this chic just crashing. lol..I mean its really not that funny unless you watch it a few times over, and even then it looks so painful that youre afraid to laugh.
Gaga was performing You & I in Houston the other night when she fell off of the piano..HARD. lol The great part though is.. as all Pros she went right on with the show.. the show must go on.
Got this email last night from a reader and I would like to honor it lol!
Funny thing is Id seen everybody blogging about YM's take over here in Atlanta the other night and Ive been just waiting on the Wayne fans who read here to hit me like um... pics please! Id seen all of the pics and whats even funnier is the only thing that stuck out to me about them was the same thing Mariam wants to know..

From a child I knew that I wanted to go to Spelman College. What I didnt know is the wealth of spirit and knowledge Id gain from being a part of such an enormous legacy. I love my Spelman family! Happy founders day ladies! Continue to Change the World!
I can recall being introduced to the cocoa conflict in the Ivory Coast while in high school. Faculty member over our student organization HYPE made me aware of how these children were being enslaved on cocoa plantations. He informed me of how they were tricked into believing that they were coming to work and be paid for their work, only to find that they were really stuck there to live in horrendous conditions with very little means to survive.
After years of rappers asking for a collab.. guess who got it!? Sweeeet!

Stuff got real to some people earlier yesterday.. the very idea that the government was shutting down scared the crap out of people, as it should. Most comments that I came across were just speculation and ignorance. People with no clue that this has happened many times before & who clearly didnt even understand why or what the shut down meant.
When I say this woman's voice is one of the most underrated out there. I MEAN clean. And this song is one of my all time jams! I used to sing it as a kid just because the delivery was that enticing.. it was def one of those stand in the mirror with the brush records.
Well.. now that Im older I can appreciate it on so many levels. Her vocals are perfect, the lyrics are great! Over all its just a classic record. I dont think it will ever be old. Love love love it! Thought Id take you guys back. :)
