Yesterday, I was cordially invited to attend the opening night of Cavalia Odysseo. We were able to mix and mingle before the show started at the VIP Party which featured the international cast, Mayor Ba Megan Barry, local news reporters and the creator  Normand Latourelle.

If you have no idea what I’m speaking of  then  if you drive by Briley Pkwy towards Opry Mills mall or Opryland  then you can’t help but notice the big white tent as  you pass down the interstate..

Well that’s Cavalia! 🙂

Cavalia is known as  an entertainment company that specializes in the creation, production and touring of shows for audiences of all ages worldwide showcasing equestrian and acrobatic techniques.

This internationally acclaimed,  7 million dollar  live entertainment production tour has the largest tent in the world. Odysseo is a theatrical experience, an ode to horse and man, that marries equestrian arts, awe-insipring acorbatics and high tech theater effects.

As I watched the show, I felt like I was in a scene of a real life horse movie. The stage featureds  125 foot tall White Big Top that seats 2,000 people in the audience, 60 horses, a beautiful international cast ( African dancers were my favorite 🙂 , a real carousel and a magical 40,000-gallon lake in front of a stunning video backdrop the size of three large movie screens.

This two hour dream touches your heart and soul. It definitely a once in a lifetime experience well worth the price tag  that you will want to share with family, a perfect date night, or  night of the arts. You definitely will never forget this!

My favorite parts of the show would be seeing all the beautiful horses especially the Stallions,  the African dancers who mastered crowd participation with gymnastics and a special chant of O Walu Guere Moufan, which we learned means, “No More War!”  (Definitely fitting for the times we are living in.)

Of course the icing on my cake, was the water performance which I don’t want to giveaway so you have to go see it for yourself!

Personally, I made it a family night and we  ALL loved each and every moment from beginning to end!

A Question of Faith

AQOF_Poster_Altered

Recently, I was invited to attend a private screening of the film, “A Question of Faith,” in Franklin at the AMC Thoroughbred theater. As I walked in the theater location it looked like a beautiful mall location.

They have made some MAJOR UPDATES! I mean they have a bar with high tables, recliner chairs, self-serve drink stations and the icing on the cake RECLINER SEATS in the movie theater with order button ( much like room service).

D3 Entertainment were very organized with their screening location and  a Q and A discussion with the director Kevan Otto.  There was even a Dove award winner in the house Nicole Mullen.

The cast was very talented with Kim Fields, TC Stallings and  Richard T. Jones and many newcomers.

The movie was POWERFUL from start to finish. The message will hit home with families, communities and churches. I highly recommend this film as a church group field trip or activity or family movie night.

I don’t want to give this movie away, however I must share it will open your eyes on so many different levels!

Be sure to support this movie when hits your local theater on September 29th!

 

For now check out the trailer here:

RIP DICK GREGORY

dickgregory

The historical civil rights activist, comedian, and GAME CHANGER THE ICONIC DICK GREGORY PASSED ON SATURDAY! 🙁 It was a sad day for the WORLD AND A BIG LOSS! It feels like a bad dream.

Brother Dick Gregory played a HUGE PART IN THE BLACK MOVEMENT AND KEEPING US #AWOKE! The report is that he had been in the hospital with a heart condition. ( We don’t buy it) He was a healthy man who took the time to share so much with the World and be an EXAMPLE!

It is our hope, prayer and wish that each of us can get a little DICK Gregory magic and share it across this challenging world we live in.

Minister Farrakhan was reportedly one of the last souls to speak with Dick in the earthly realm. Check out this interview he did below:

LETOYA

Tonight was a MAGICAL HISTORICAL night for Music City at TPAC! The 2017 Black Music Honors was hosted by comedian/talk show radio host Rickey Smiley and sanger/actor LeToya Luckett. Rickey and Letoya were GREAT HOSTS! This was Letoya’s first appearance since her NEWS spread of her engagement! ( yas go LETOYA! 🙂 )

The night kicked off with a bang as the award ceremony honorees musical greats such as: Jodi Watley, Guy, Slick Rick, Oleta Adams, Donnie McClurkin and a special lifetime acheivement award for The Jacksons.

It was definitely a star-studded event on the red carpet as we so some our favorites: Kid and Play, Carl Thomas, Da Brat, Montell Jordan, Jon-Jon, Sevyn Streeter, Oleta Adams, and of course the Jacksons.

The stage was set vividely and every performance was on POINT! We could tell they had rehearsed and practiced to perfection. Some of our favorite moments were the Guy Tribute performance from SWV, Sevyn Streeter performance of “Do You Want Me” in the Jodi Watley tribute, and Kid N Play, Montell Jordan and Da Brat tribute to Slick Rick.

The ICING ON OUR CAKE OF COURSE WAS THE JACKSON 5 PERFORMANCE! They announced they would be going on a world tour which just happened to start with us! We don’t want to spill ALL THE TEA SO YOU WILL HAVE TO WATCH WHEN IT AIRS ON BOUNCE TV IN SEPT!
