VINTAGE POP SOUL w/ SAYCON @ 54Below in NYC Aug 13th

What a year its been so far! What a journey, I’m excited to share some new music with you all as I prepare my concerts for my 54 Below debut. Earlier this year I was  seen in the show  Holler If Ya Hear Me which featured the music of Tupac Shakur  and Motown the Musical in the heart of Times Square on Broadway. Also I’m featured along with the cast of Fela the Musical in the Sundance documentary, Finding Fela Any of you who may want to see more of me get to know the voice and personality behind the actress, come out to hear me sing some of your favorite songs in my own way and some just as you like them( lol). Songs from my theatrical career and songs I wrote as well, with a tasty meal or drinks and desserts to boot! My Instagram moniker is VintagePopSoul and I decided to name the show that because they all exist within me. Thanks for all the well wishes on this year’s success I remain grateful! Mark your calendars now Gmail users!

Man oh man life brings you surprises… You never know what God has in store. Here it is 2014, I haven’t blogged in a while, I’ve been busy ya’ll: On the literary tip I’m reading TD Jakes, “Instinct” highly recommended by my girl, Joaquina and rehearsing and learning so much about myself and life. Just celebrated another Mother’s Day away from my beautiful Mom who lives in Atlanta, but she’s good and I am certainly thankful for life and breath. 2014 has brought exciting moments in my career that have in some ways renewed my self perception, my level of belief and ambition.  I was able to record some music and release a single and music video for my song Be Here. I shot a television pilot in February, 3 weeks ago I left the show, Motown the Musical, and now here I am taking part in the new hip-hop infused show, “Holler If Ya Hear Me” written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Kenny Leon. The process is exciting and intense, and we are performing the beautiful & very real lyrics of Tupac Shakur. Everyone asks if the show is about Tupac, well the answer is no, its not an autobiographical show, BUT by using his songs and poetry, Todd Kreidler has put together a story that absolutely draws from the ideals and subject matter expressed in his music. Holler If Ya Hear Me stars Saul Williams and is about a young man and artist dealing with change, changes in his relationships, his community and life as he knew it to be, life can be cruel, deep, & exciting . First & foremost Tupac was a story teller and he created great imagery with his lyrics and we are bringing those lyrics to life with songs like “Dear Momma”, “Changes”, and “My Block”. Not to mention his poetry is getting the royal treatment, (as it should) introducing a new audience to Tupac’s representative tongue presenting the plight of the disenfranchised youth simultaneously promoting his wisdom and wild ways. Don’t want to give it away, you must come in person to see the story and see how this city block is brought to life on the Broadway stage! Check out the clips of us in rehearsal below:

 

New BE HERE Music Video Coming Soon!

Hey ya’ll stay tuned to see my new music video for the song, Be Here.

Stay tuned to see the new music video and enjoy specially directed by the one and only Hannelore Williams and with a surprise guest appearance as well. . . stay tuned.
