Awesome #EverydayWomen That Look Like Me

Awesome everyday women that look like me are too often unseen, therefore we think they are non-existent. I began the #EverydayWomen series to help dispel this myth and spotlight a few women that inspire me. On Instagram, I announced that I would run the series via Facebook from Nov. 25 – Dec. 25, 2014. The series would feature images of 30 awesome everyday women. Instead of 30, there are 31 everyday women featured and the series extended through January 1, 2015.

Science, technology, finance, arts/entertainment, government, health/beauty, military, and fashion are some of the career fields these women dabble in. Like countless women, most of these ladies wear multiple hats. While juggling the demands of their careers, several of these women are wives and/or mothers too.

What’s Hot In L.A.? It’s RaVaughn!

Do you remember belting out feel good R&B songs by Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill and TLC? I do and I also recall not having a real clue what the lyrics meant but you couldn’t tell me that. Recently, I’ve been vibing to a few songs that take me back to those days, except I now know the passion behind them all to well.

Talented and gorgeous Los Angeles born and bred R&B song bird RaVaughn is set to drop her first album Love Always this summer, but it’s sure to take you back to the 90s with its soulful story-telling tracks. If the rest of the album continues in the path of the album sampler you will not want to ride in my car summer 2013.

RaVaughn, also known as Ne-Yo’s protege, is signed to CompoundU/Columbia Records. Most people think that she is new to the game but I know otherwise. When I met her about 10 years ago she and music had a full on love affair in progress. Her consistent dedication is paying off and she is receiving well-deserved recognition.

Listen to the Love Always album sampler below and check out the video for RaVaughn’s first official single ‘Better Be Good’ featuring Wale.

Justin Timberlake & Destiny’s Child?

Justin Timberlake & Destiny’s Child? Yes, please!

In a open letter to fans, JT announced that he will release a new album titled The 20/20 Experience, this year. Justin has been secretly working on the album since last June. My ears are open and ready to listen. After hearing the new single “Suit & Tie’ featuring Jay Z, it is safe to say that sexy is back & he’s all grown up.

Speaking of grown ups, the ladies of Destiny’s Child are now gorgeous women. My big sisters (in my head) are reuniting for the first time since 2005. They will release Love Songs, a compilation of some of my fav previously recorded tracks & ‘Nuclear’, their new single. The best news is that they will be performing during the halftime show at Super Bowl, YES (doing my happy dance)!

Check out the singles below.
