Wattage!

I believe this is 1980  for RightOn! Magazine, a feature on my style – in this case hair. This is around the time of Shalamar ‘Three For Love’ album. The style came about because of not wanting to braid to the ends because the unbraiding would be more time consuming. It was unique at the time.

Very proud of the resilience I continue to have, the woman and artist I grew to be – still trying to be the best ME I can be no matter what. I’m full of gratitude, healthy and happy fast forwarding decades later living life and going beyond what I ever dreamed initially to create new ones.

Always choose to believe in yourself and keep growing – never get stagnant or lose faith.

We don’t want to be the Black Eyed Peas, BEP though we wouldn’t mind their success as a contemporary trio making eclectic fun music with style!

MUSIC is elixir for the soul, wings to imagination, hope when feeling despair, joy when you want to dance, melody when you need a good cry, a soundtrack for love, romance, celebration, revolution, self empowerment – and motivation when it’s time to kick into grind mode.
