What do Tony and two-time Grammy Award winner Jennifer Holiday, Grammy Award winner Gloria Gaynor, R&B star Bobby V, and Pop Phenom Justin Bieber all have in common? They’ve been fortunate to have soulful songstress Latrese Bush as a background vocalist. Her melodic vocal range has supported these and many other musical greats. Latrese fuses her high energy with brilliant vocal ability in each song and performance – crafting memorable musical experiences for her audience.
She made her acting debut in the feature film, The Fighting Temptations, featuring super star artist Beyonce Knowles and Oscar winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. She also performed background vocals on the motion picture’s soundtrack. Later she expanded her credits by appearing in Tyler Perry’s House of Payne’s, Palmer Williams’ play For Better or For Worse.
Latrese will continue to blaze her path to success, as she approaches the release of her debut LP, with the goal of realizing all the hopes and dreams of that little girl from Bluffton. That’s what powerhouse vocalists do!
In this segment of Brunch In The Basement With JaVonne, Latrese shares music, hopes, and dreams.

The Jones Girls consisted of sisters Brenda, Valorie and Shirley Jones. Their biggest hit was "You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else". My personal favorite is "I Just Love The Man" but the ladies had many other hits and memorable songs such as "Nights Over Egypt" and "Who Can I Run To". Shirley was the first to make solo music and hit #1 on the R&B Charts with "Do You Get Enough Love" She continues to make beautiful soulful and rich music. We are all very excited as she joins Meka Rae and Nathan James for Brunch In The Basement With JaVonne- Only on WJBR Internet Radio!
Inaya Day was once the under study for Stephanie Mills in THE WIZ and then gained the lead role as Dorothy.

She later became a Billboard Chart Topping House Music Artist with hits such as "Moving Up" and "Can't Stop Dancing" which was #1 on Billboards Club Play.

There is only ONE thing we need in life to grab what we want! That is confidence. When we have confidence our abilities we are able to receive any and everything need want out of life.
On Monday, Sept. 15th we will discuss women approaching a love interest to ask for his/her number, proposing to a man (is that considered confidence or desperation), going after our dreams/goals, and feeling confident enough to take initiative in the bedroom.
Questions we will address:
I see a guy I like...should I approach him? Is that "ladylike?"
Should I propose to my dominate/male partner?
I want to write a book, start a business, and/or make a career change...can I really do it? What is stopping me? Is it fear?
I want to try some new things in the bedroom...how do I approach my spouse about it?
How do I initiate sex in the bedroom?
We hope you all join us. We will have an exciting discussion! :-)

Ms. Sarah Dash is an original member of the legendary group Patti Labelle and The Bluebells which later became known as Labelle which included Ms. Dash, Nona Hendrix, and Patti Labelle. When the ladies went their own way, Ms. Dash continued to make wonderful music on her own and along with others such as Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones. Among some of her work, you will find that she has created outstanding spiritual music, some of which is traditional gospel and other songs have an upbeat gospel house rhythm. Either way, her music is always soulful and inspirational, just like the lady herself. We are so blessed to have her join us!
Join Meka Rae and Renair as we discuss Labels and Roles in the LGBT Community. Do you dress tomboyish but consider yourself "feminine" but people tend to call you a "stud", "butch", "aggressive," and/or "soft stud?" Are you feminine but people assume you are heterosexual, bisexual, or you are a pillow princess? Are you heterosexual but people think you are a lesbian just by the way you dress?
Do labels play a huge part in how you are treated in a relationship? Are you expected to be the "man" of the house just because you dress more masculine? Are you feminine and expected to clean, cook, carry the baby, etc?
We will discuss all of the above and more when you join us on Monday, September the 8th at 10pm Eastern
We look forward to hearing your thoughts

No, I'm not a church goer, but I love the Lord and I love Gospel music and God loves me just as I am. I have proof of that every day! I also love gospel music and inspirational uplifting songs. This week, we are going to be blessed by the presence of a special guest, Bishop Zachary Jones. When I first found a church that I was comfortable in, it was in large part because of this man and his ministry. It was his church in NYC that welcomed me and helped me to understand and believe that God loves me.
Bishop Jones is currently serving as a member of the Pastor's board of Unity Fellowship of Christ, NYC. Bishop Jones is the Jurisdiction Bishop for Jurisdiction 2 of the Unity Fellowship Church Movement. He is the founder of the Unity Fellowship of Christ, NYC. Bishop Jones is currently serving as the Chairman of the Board of Gay Men of African Decent, New York City.
Bishop Jones is a graduate of Palos Verdes Bible Training Center, Los Angeles Cal. and holds a Master Degree in Systematic Theology. Bishop Jones has been in the ministry since 1978, where he was licensed in pulpit ministry by the Mount Moriah Baptist church. Bishop Jones served under the founder of the Unity Fellowship Church Movement, Archbishop Carl Bean, as the first Assistant of the denomination and later appointed as the Dean of Theological Studies.
Terez Mychelle is widely known for her recent marriage on popular reality tv show "R&B Divas" where she not only proposed, but married her beloved for the world to see. The impact has been monumental in changing minds in the black community about LGBT Love. A big reason for this is that both Terez and her wife Monifah are two of the sweetest, down to earth, keeping it real type sistahs you ever want to meet. It's hard to hate on what your heart recognizes as true love.
With that said, Terez is going to join me and not just be a "special guest" but she is going to co-host! That's right! The musical playlist is of Terez's choice and along with Meka Rae and Nathan James, we're gonna make it do what it do! So, don't miss it!
Join us on Monday, Sept. 1st at 10pm Eastern as we discuss "Who's Paying for the Date?" Have you ever been asked out on a date and then expected to pay for it too? Should you have to pay for a date that someone asked you out on? Should the assumption be 50/50 or is it the responsibility of the person that asked? Should you gracefully bow out if you aren't able to foot the bill? Is it fair to ask someone out on a date and then expect them to pay for it? If you are asked on a date...do you make sure to have enough money to cover both you and the person asking? Also...what do you order on the menu? The most expensive item (even though you know you can't afford it on your own), the less expensive item (in consideration of your date's budget), or something you know you can afford as well?
These are questions we will discuss live on air Monday, Sept 1st at 10pm. We hope you will join us and share your thoughts!
