Tonight Pam Degand will be joined by a special co-host Charity Wilder-Fischer along with Kevin W. Womble and our special guest is Publisher and Author Heddrick McBride of McBride Stories Collection
Mr. McBride will be our guest this Sunday evening at 8:00 pm Eastern time. He is the owner/author of a collection of stories that are geared towards African American children. The colorful covers really jump out and catch one's eye. Heddrick's passion came from noticing there were very few books in bookstores, libraries, etc. that were just for black children. The books are very informative and fun at the same time.
He has also worked with ex-offenders in order to help them understand just how important family and being a responsible citizen is.
Such a FABULOUS October already! Gregg Karukas and Kiki Ebsen last week - and two more guests on 10/7 that are absolutely FUN! Jonathan Widran joins us in the second hour of the show - and it's going to be a ball to have him return. Jonathan has thrilled us for years, writing about, reviewing or interviewing Jazz legends. And Pop and Rock artists, too. He's a Chicago native who found his way to Los Angeles and got his degree in English at U.C.L.A. Within two years after graduation, he was introduced to what would be his amazing life via the Catalina Jazz gathering - right around this time - in 1988. Friend Dan Margules had lit a fire in Jonathan concerning Contemporary Jazz - and that fire has blazed uncontrollably (blissfully!) via columns and articles from local publications to national and international magazines and newspapers. He has also managed to write FIVE books on varying topics! Jonathan is considered a "first-call" freelance public relations writer. And does he love to DISH about those in the business :) What a joy to have him with us!
North Carolina born, Geoff McBride, is probably no stranger to your ears. He lit UP "The Voice" a few seasons ago with his blind audition of "Higher Ground!" Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green about lost their minds - and so did WE. The Church foundation of his youth, coupled with the inspiration of Seal, Luther and James Taylor, propelled Geoff into the spotlight that he so richly deserves. If you can blow away his mentor on the show, Lionel Richie, THAT says everything! Geoff's sparkling story is told by way of CD, "Journey to the Soul." He says, "My foundation is in Soul Music - but I am not just a Soul Singer." THAT is because everything he does generates FROM there! Once you hear a few tracks from this Powerhouse, you'll KNOW!
We are happy to welcome back to The Empowerment Hour Online University Earnest McBride. Mr. Mcbride will be coming to us this week from The Pan African Film & Arts Festival in Los Angeles, California. This festival founded in 1992 has helped to promote cultural and racial tolerance and understanding though the exhibition of film, art and creative expression.
We look forward to Mr. McBride's report from this powerful festival
