Fashion Week, Apollo Theater, Film and Toni Braxton Concert

15 Sep


I have not been as active on my blog but great opportunities  and events have come my way.  I recently was a production assistant on a feature film shoot in NY city. I can’t provide many details about the film because I signed a waiver but it was really exiting. I have never worked in film but it was amazing opportunity to expand my creative services.

Yesterday, I want to a free taping of the famous Apollo Theater. I met Dougie Fresh  but Gladys Knight and Michael Biven also attended the event as guest judges.  Most of the acts were great and few were terrible.  I never realized how long it takes to shoot a television series. Many of the clips were reshoot multiple times.  The live performance was Chrisette Michael, a popular R&B singer.

My favorite thing that I did this month was attend Fashion Week. I was able to snag  a ticket to Fashion Week 2013 Premiere Event Feat. Project Runway Designer Irina Shabayeva and Vogue Published Designer Long Tran.  The  event was held at Empire Hotel Rooftop on44  West 63rd Street, New York, New York 10023. The cloths were amazing. I defiantly preferred Irina line because it was more practical while Long’s collection was more futuristic. It has always been a dream of mine to go to Fashion Week. Every year I would try to volunteer but never could get a position.

In August, I went to a Toni Braxton concert at the State Theater in New Brunswick, NJ. It was awesome and the State Theater has defiantly upgraded there line of events.  The place was packed as she perform some of her greatest hit  such as Unbreak My Heart and Breathe Again. Ton’s sister Towanda, Trina and Traci performed as well. Trina is also launching a solo career and had a mini concert within the show. I thought that was very nice of Toni to let her sister shine as well. Tamar was not there, I assume she is busy with her own career.

This is shaping up to be a wonderful September and my birth is this month. Super excited  about turning 24.

I love music. All kinds. Different genres. Here are my favorite songs as of now.

I love people who have been out for a long time and suddenly become famous. It is the best form of success SLOW and STEADY. This song came out last year and out of the blue it has become this huge hit. The mix of Sting sounding Goyte and Kimbra voice makes this a very pleasing song to hear. I think we can all relate to the lyrics and the passion that is emanating from this song.

Love her or hate her Nicki Minaj kinda rules the world. Behind Beyonce and Lady Gaga, Nicki is pretty popular. After her disaturous performance at the Grammy’s, I became a bit worried about her new material. This is her best single out from the lastest album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Nicki Minaj is not a singer but she definatley can carry a tune. Chris Brown sultry voice and her not so sultry voice blends so well together.

I love unique sounding songs. The intro to the song immediately caught my ear. I love the melodies and the highs and the lows of the song. Your ears are never bored. I also love the acoustic version with Janelle Monea is also very good.

Jennifer Lopez makes great pop/dance songs. That is just the truth. This song is very familiar to her last song, Get on the Floor. If you have a formula that works stick to it. This song is produced by Redone featuring Pittbull. The lyrics are simple but very catchy. When I first heard the song I did not like it but I knew I would love it shortly.

This song is so catchy. When I first heard this song it became clear that I was the last one to know about it. This single has been out for some time now and with the help of Twitter it blew up.

What are your favorite songs?
