Well as you know, I was nominated and won Female Vocalist of the Year, New Jazz and Album of the Year, Soul R&B last Thursday. Here are some of the pictures from Thursday night and there are more to come, including some video clips of the songs I performed.
So basically the night started out around 6:00 p.m. Another artist, Robert Popa and I walked the red carpet around the same time, although we were interviewed separately. It was actually really cool, but we'll keep that between us!! :-)

Anyhow, I think the rest of the photos below are self explanatory.... Overall, it was an amazing night and I met a lot of people ... great musicians, singers and music lovers. I had a great support team around me .... and, of course, Jamie, the fantastic guitarist who happens to be off tour and honored me with his talent and played the set for me!! A million thanks for that....
Just me and one of my Awards......
Gospel Singer, Sherri Bryant and me ... Sherri was kind enough to hold my other Award for this shot.... She also performed a mean version of "Blessed" - [Check her out at www.sherribryant.com]
Jamie Kime [check him out at www.zappa.com] and me ...
Rocky & me ... The Producer of my Album 'Right Here' and co-writer of 7 of
the songs on the CD
Greta and Me.... Yep.. she was about ready to head home!!
Lots more pictures and info to come in the next few days.... Oh! And, a quick note to everyone for the cool e-mails of congrads and some really wonderful text messages!
Thought for the day: Life is short, do what you must to follow your dreams!
Cheers & Peace,
