Me and my #honeybooboo lol @jus10milli (at Mo’s Fort Greene)

Catch Lonette McKee, acclaimed Tony Nominated film and stage actress best known for her portrayal of ‘Sista’ in the now cult-movie, Sparkle, in concert for a one night only performance, A Night To Remember on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 7PM, Aaron Davis Hall, City College of New York. 

 

"This concert means the world to me. I feel I have found a home at The City College of New York where I already enjoy teaching my Actor’s Workshop," states McKee.” And now, the school has given me the opportunity to produce a concert starring me and dear friend, Michael Henderson, who is a music industry icon and living legend. This is our first-ever appearance together and I’m so proud and excited that we’re presenting it at beautiful Aaron Davis Hall on The City College campus in Harlem NY!"

 

During A Night to Remember, McKee will perform hits from Sparkle, Round Midnight, Lady Day and more. 

 

McKee, who starred in the hit 70’s classic Sparkle, which was recently re-made and released, has spent her life entrenched in the arts and music and is currently working on a new studio Jazz album.

On Tuesday, October 23rd celebrity hair-stylist Keith Campbell held a book release party at Limelight Shops in New York City. His new book DECIDE to Be BEAUTIFUL is an artistic expression of beauty and art, and a dynamic read for all. In this book, Keith urges women to make the initial decision to be beautiful right where they stand….as they are, with all of their strengths and flaws. Keith’s message is “You are beautiful, you are intelligent, you are creative, you are amazing, and no changes are necessary for you to be beautiful, only growth.”

Black Opal partnered with emerging designer Samantha Black to present the 2013 S/S runway collection. Celebrity make-up artist and Black Opal Artistic Director Frank Guyton served as the key make-up artist creating a retro look with a fresh and new twist.

Samantha Black says “my inspiration for this collection started off with simple SOHO brunch. Back in the day women used to dressed up.They were classy and feminine. Today, brunch is more of a scene, funky, sassy and very fashionable.  My collection is a mixture of both, colliding vintage fashion with a modern twist; while remaining very feminine, sassy and innovative.”

Bravo to Black Opal and Samantha Black for a great show!
