Hey peeps. Yes, I know, I haven’t posted much since Friday. That’s because I was away over the weekend doing some fun stuff.
What fun stuff you might ask?
Saturday night I saw Elliott Yamin put on an excellent concert at the Starland Ballroom in NJ. He’s really come a long way as a performer, and his vocals, as always, are INCREDIBLE. If Elliott’s tour is coming through your town, I highly recommend his show.
On Sunday, I had quite an adventure making my way into the city (heh) to see Fantasia in The Color Purple. There’s been so much talk about Jennifer Hudson and her Oscar winning performance in Dreamgirls. Witnessing Fantasia’s remarkable performance as Celie reminded me why, in the end, she won the whole shebang Season 3.
The role spans 40 years in the life of a woman who encounters many hardships to finally triumph over adversity. An incredibly moving performance, Fantasia lays bare every emotion she’s got right there on the stage, and then some.
It’s no wonder her performance is winning rave reviews. Make your plans and book your tickets NOW peeps.
Watch today’s blog for more updates. I’ll be a posting machine today, catching up on stuff I didn’t get done over the weekend…
