Words can't describe how excited I am for this weekend. My girls and I are going to DC for Howard University's homecoming. That school is known for having bomb homecomings...ahhh I can't stop smiling LOL. It's funny though because I used to attend Hampton University and we were always in competition with Howard to see who was the real "HU"....even though I go to Rutgers now, i still believe Hampton is the real HU.
Anyway, I won't really be able to blog this weekend so I wanted to leave you with a lil somethin random :)
When I saw this quote i fell in love....so much that its the background on my laptop.
The reality of the quote is surreal...we create our own demons and hatred in the world. If you think about it "race" one of the major sources of discrimination, racism, and hatred was created and as the country began to grow and industrialize, so did the idea of "race".
We as humans are always so curious...we want to know the answer for everything; Everything must have a reason. Instead of letting things be, we instigate a "imaginary solution"
I first heard/saw Laura Izibor perform while I was watching One Tree Hill. She performed this beautiful song called "Can't be love" and instantly fell in love. So of course as soon as the episode ended I went straight to google to see who this beautiful artist was with this angelic voice. One Tree Hill is known for debuting new artists and giving them a chance to shine on live television. With songs featured on popular movie and television soundtracks like "P.S I Love You", "Step Up 2", "Why Did I Get Married Too", "Grey's Anatomy" and most recently the highly anticipated "For Colored Girls", she is def an artist to look out for.
Her debut on One Tree Hill
In my opinion her sound is a mix of Alicia Keys and Adele!
Please check her out...I'm sure you'll love it too.
She has also been featured on VH1's You Oughta Know, Rollingstone's Artist to Watch, Vibe Magazine's Next Artist, and BET's Rising Icons
"If Tonight is My Last"
I really love this song, "If Tonight is My Last", and "Can't Be Love"
