HIDDEN TREASURES…

Recently, I was blessed to check out uber musician and producer Mark de Clive-Lowe accompanied by the smooth vocals of Vanessa Freeman (of Reel People) as they neared the finish line of their world tour.

Now I’m by no means comparing Jill and Laura Izibor musically. While I do hope that Laura has even half the success that Jill has had and […]

Last week’s spotlight on Leon King, who cites Bilal as one of his influences, caused Tristian to ask, “Where is Bilal?” Since I consider myself to be the president and CEO of his stan association, I am all too happy to answer!

After all the excitement has quieted, it will be time to get down to business and pave a new road out of […]
