    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Demetria McKinney & Diamond Strawberry

    in Music

    Demetria McKinney is a triple threat in the truest sense of the term. She is an award-winning actress who has played diverse roles on the big and small screens as well as the stage. She is a gifted singer with a rich voice requiring zero studio enhancements. And she is a skillful songwriting who thoughtfully expresses emotions in a way that instantly connects with listeners.


    Widely known for her role as “Janine Payne” on the hit TBS sitcom “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” which has taped over 254 episodes and received five NAACP Image Awards for Best Sitcom, Demetria can currently be seen on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” as the newest cast member. Mckinney also has reoccurring roles on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids” and TV One’s “The Rickey Smiley Show” sitcom.


    Even though her acting career keeps her very busy, Demetria always makes time for her first love: music. Over the past few years she has recorded and performed with artists such as Musiq Soulchild and Anthony David. Demetria has also opened for Anthony David as well as such R&B mainstays as R. Kelly, Dwele and Tank.  Now, after spending time perfecting her craft and tapping fully into her musical voice, Demetria is set to release an EP – “Officially Yours” – to give music fans just a taste of what she has to offer.

    in Entertainment

    Listen...she is just enchanting...so good I had to invite her back...uh huh..I sure did...Join us this sunday for some tea and soul sangin...


     


     


    Rhonda Thomas was a featured soloist and background vocalist


    for Isaac Hayes for 11 years before his untimely passing. Rhonda


    served in that capacity while remaining extremely focused on


    elevating her solo musical career. Issac Hayes wholeheartedly


    supported Rhonda’s desire to spread her wings musically. He


    commented, “Her voice has a wide range. She has the quality,


    vocal timbre and vibrato of Denise Williams when she goes high.


    There are a lot of vocal sounds in this young woman. Jazz-wise


    she can scat too!” Additionally, in Isaac Hayes’ review of “Breathe


    New Life” he further expressed, “WOW, a human voice singing


    songs of substance... Hats off to production, musicianship,


    arrangement, vocals and don’t miss the lyrics, it’s a breath of


    fresh air.”


    A resident of Atlanta, GA who performs nationally and


    internationally, Rhonda’s natural talent, professional drive, and


    amazing charisma have landed her in the presence of greatness


    many times and has opened numerous doors for her. She has


    performed or shared the stage with Luther Vandross, Roberta


    Flack, Roy Ayers, Frank McComb, Dwele, Eric Roberson,


    N’dambi and Sam Moore (of the legendary duo Sam and Dave)


    just to name a few. With her enchanting voice, Rhonda has


    stamped her name on the hearts of all that have witnessed her


    singing live.


    She wears her influences like an elegant gown draped with


    the improvisational skill and vocal acrobatics of Sarah Vaughn


    and Al Jarreau, and the depth and emotional effectiveness of


    Phyllis Hyman and Chaka

    LaDonna Raeh kicks it with the talented and sexy Dwele

    in Entertainment

     
    As one of R&B's smoothest singer-songwriter-producers, Dwele has crafted so many romantic ballads, from "Find A Way" to "I'm Cheatin'," that it might be difficult to see the soulful tenor as anything other than a modest poet.    Tune in to Life and the Public Figure as Dwele talks to LaDonna Raeh about how he locked himself into the studio and came out with his fifth album…Greater Than One.   On the first single, "What Profit," Dwele's familiar warm vocals come alive over a strolling guitar and easy two-step drums.   "The hook says 'What profits a man to gain the whole wide world and lose his girl? If I was your man, I'd do all that I can to keep you,' " he says. "It's related to the bible verse that states 'What profits a man to gain the world but lose his soul.' " "We shot 'What Profit' with Mike City, who co-wrote the song, along with Phife from A Tribe Called Quest, who has a remix verse," Dwele says. "In the clip, I play a guy who's got too much going on and stops paying attention to his girl."   Now, gearing up to spread the word about "Greater Than One," the Detroit native will hit the road making stops across the United States, where fans can grab his mini-album as well as "Greater Than One," which hit shelves on August 28, 2012.   This interview you won't want to miss!
