The third single from my second second album “Everything” a Top 5 Hot 100 and R&B hit was featured on Pose FX last night! It’s the third of my solo classics (Don’t You Want Me, Looking For A New Love ) to be included on the groundbreaking Emmy nominated show.
Friday July 19 on Staten Island was super hot, nearly 100 degrees in the shade at City Parks Presents Summerstage Corporal Thompson Park. Thanks to all the braved the sweltering temperature to enjoy classic disco vinyl spun by Joey Carvello from Mobile Monday’s and international Queen Of Waacking Princess Lockeroo who gave lessons on how to werk it.

After slaying a set that leaned more heavily on the disco theme which meant a bit more of my Shalamar repertoire than usual we had an early start to Bethesda. Loved the train ride.. always nice to have a moment of pause looking out at the scenery.
Traveling band..it makes all the difference to enjoy the company you keep while on the road handing business.
The setlist featured a few deep cuts like Skin Deep from the critically acclaimed “Midnight Lounge” full length, “Precious Love” “Nightlife” the classic soul Soulpersona mix with a nod to the late great Phyllis Hyman. Also on the set was current single collaboration with Brian Power “Good Good Reason.”
Breaking barriers as first black woman on Japanese fashion magazine, there were billboards across Japan and I also filmed a television commercial that aired through the country – such an honor. Photography: Philip Dixon. Makeup: Paul Starr. Wardrobe: Martin Sitbon
