Brunch with Siedah Garrett

The Michael Jackson Fans of New York City and Legacy of Love: Michael Jackson Fans United NYC joined forces to celebrate the life of Michael Jackson with a key person in his life and career, Siedah Garrett. Siedah Garrett is a Grammy award winning singer/songwriter who sung duet on the track “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” and wrote songs “Keep the Faith” and “Man in the Mirror.” She also toured with Michael as one of his main female vocalists. The two shared many memories together as she reminisced to us. She answered questions and took us back to when they shared the stage and studio together. As she spoke, the live “Dangerous” concert in Bucharest played on televisions in the room.

The day was also her birthday in which we sang “Happy Birthday” to her and gave her a beautiful cake with a photo of her and Michael in the recording studio facing one another. She was such a beautiful and awesome person. She shared laughs and a few tears with us. We all shared one common connection, missing Michael. She also signed autographs and took photographs. I was nervous of course, but I got over it and showed her much love and respect.

Special thanks to Siedah and her manager Erik for sharing their time with us. We definitely need to do this again.

"Preserve Newark Libraries" Performance

I asked "Is there anything I can do?" I want to stress the importance of libaries to the people especially in my community. Due to budget cuts, libraries are listed under "Other" which makes them not as important or worth saving. I want to change that idea. They are a major benefit to the people, young and old. Hours are cut and branches are closing in my hometown of Newark, NJ. Pretty soon, there may not be anymore at the rate it's going. I feel upset because as a child and up until now ther library has helped me. I want the children to have the same luxury I had growing up. One way to assure that we can keep them active is that people in the community sign-up for library cards and use them as often as possible. I volunteered to perform during their Library Card Sign-Up Day. The people enjoyed me and how I'm trying to bring some light to this issue. I believe what I am doing will help raise awareness and make change. I believe Michael Jackson would have done it as well.

Metuchen Street Fair and Performance

Sunday June 3rd, I performed at another large street fair. This time I was in Metuchen, New Jersey. I love how I have been spreading major Michael Jackson love throughout New Jersey. I'm so happy to see how many people love Michael by showing me love for representing him.

My mom and I went on this adventure. She has been very supportive of my mission to spread Michael Jackson love. This was also our first time in Metuchen. This was a large fair with many venders and people walking around. I was happy to feel the love I got, it eased my nerves. I performed to a megamix and afterwards I took plenty of photos with Michael Jackson fans, young and old. I had such an awesome time, I can't wait until next time.

Photos taken by my mom. Thanks mom!

Zayah's Birthday Party and Performance

I was so happy to perform at a birthday party on Saturday June 2, 2012. The party was for my little cousin, Zayah. The children and adults loved having me there. Zayah had a blast as well. I performed two medley sets and took photos. I also signed autographs. One young girl screamed and ran around, she is a huge Michael Jackson fan. I'm so happy they all enjoyed me because I definitely enjoyed them.
