I just thought I'd let you know about my next two gigs which happen to be my last shows for 2010. This year's come and gone so quickly and if I haven't seen you this year I would like to see you before the year's out. So come down to see me and join me for a drink or something!
I'm singing at "Soulcial" next Tuesday 14th Dec @ the Workshop which is in Shoreditch, Old street. I'll be on quite early I think @ 8pm so if you don't wanna miss me, come early.
The Last gig of the year will be @ Dingwalls in Camden on 27th Dec where I will be a Support Act for Marsha Ambrosius (formerly of Floetry). My sister Obenewa is also supporting so it will be and ALL female ALL UK line up! So get your tickets now, they're already on sale. MARSHA AMBROSIUS WITH UK Support Hope to see you there

How are you ? I know my UK friends are battling with the snow, frost, generally crappy weather BUT the show must go on.
Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely HATE the cold weather and I am a sun worshipper and practically go into hibernation in the winter. However my schedule this winter has not allowed for me to be the hermit that I am. So I invested in a fur coat and against my principles, some Ugg boots. Yes I know, I know, they're ugly...BUT, they keep your toes from catching frostbite. Trust me. It's not about appearance in these times here! lol
So...I WILL be looking like a lil bear if you catch me out and around town. I can't afford to catch a cold, neither do I have the desire to do so.
You'll be pleased to hear I've been a good girl. I've been taking my camera around town with me.
Last Week I was invited by one of my best buddies DJ Christoss to see The Legends of UK Soul in association with the ACLT in memory of Lynden David Hall. We were entertained by the likes of Don E, Mica Paris, Jonas, Joseph Junior, Sinclair and the Legendary Roachford.
Here's a clip of Roachford doing a song he wrote with the late great Lynden David Hall. "Where My Heaven Is". This song actually brought me to tears and meeting Lynden's wife who helped with the event humbled me.
Next up was Don E. Such a lovely guy and massive talent!!!
Mica Paris was last up and didn't disappoint.
At the end of the show all the artists had a lil jam session and even invited the backing singers to participate which was nice, especially since they were MY backing singers, Kyri and Stephanie. I was so proud :)
I must say, I really didn't want to leave the comfort of my home because the weather on Sunday was disgusting. But I so glad I made the effort to go and take in the show and give a lil to the ACLT charity. I know funds are tight right now...but you can give a £3 donation to the charity by texting 70300.
On a lighter note...I had the great pleasure of opening up for Glenn Lewis on Thursday.
Again the weather was absolutely pants and some of my friends (especially in South London) were snowed in which affected the turnout, BUT there was still a healthy crowd there to support.
