Through my Domestic Violence Voices fb page, I have been introduced to the works of Shaun C. Singh who had this production on Broadway and is, now, ready to bring it back into production with an updated version and aspirations to take it off Broadway to a city near you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K3ehI6fljc He needs your help to bring everything to fruition. Come and hear about his endeavors and how he is a part of the catalyst for social justice issues -- especially with respect to domestic violence issues (something that he has had direct knowledge about). A great way of sharing his voice in the expression of fine arts.

Last Friday, I had the huge honor and pleasure to see Cinderella on Broadway. The show was spectacular. Keke Palmer played the role of Cinderella with a refreshing innocence. Her singing voice is unbelievable. I enjoyed the modern twists on the story of Cinderella. Sherri Shepherd was the runaway hit of the show. She owned the part of the Wicked Stepmother.

Many people are trying to watch their weight. Do you skip your diet during the holiday season ? Do you believe in having a "cheat day". Ive cut back on the amount of sufgar I consume, but I find myself giving into temptation.
