The event featured performances from a Hip-Hop pioneer and Soul Star. MC Lyte got the crowd dancing to some of the latest music and songs that took us back. Ladies for all generation came together in front of the stage to form a “Soul Train” line. And they didn’t stop there. MC Lyte turned the heat up by playing the “Cupid Shuffle” and “The Wobble”. R&B Singer Leela James educated the crowd on “Soul Music”. “Music with verses that had substance” James exclaimed. I’m still giddy because I was invited to dance on the stage with both Leela James & MC Lyte. African Dancer, KarmaSoul performed a traditional dance that exhibited the origin of many of our Hip Hop dances. The event also included live entertainment from local singers & musicians. I don’t have to tell you, Saturday was a blast. You can see for yourself here.
Black Women were pampered, encouraged and united!!! My Black is Beautiful Live Houston was filled with beauty of all shades, shapes and hair types. Simply Beautiful!!! Until next time!!!
