Essence Black Women in Music Celebration 2012
Last night I had the pleasure of not only DJing the 3rd Annual Black Women in Music celebration and I was honored to have been given the opportunity to say a few words.
I spoke on behalf of the My Black is Beautiful Campaign and while there at the podium I couldn’t help but pay homage to the woman who gave me an opportunity of a lifetime, Syliva Rhone. I was part of her first signing as a new music executive back in 1987 along with Audio Two and The Alliance.
Also among the honorees, Kelly Rowland who was presented with a platinum plaque commemorating a million singles sold of her hit “Motivation.” The producer of the song, Rico Love, was present to help her celebrate.
What an absolute blast of an evening!! Essence, My Black is Beautiful and Lincoln, making herstory!!!
