Rah Energy held its 2nd Annual Urban Starr Showcase ( a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of America) at the K Productions over the weekend [4.15.06]. They reported that they were able to send 3 kids to summer camp last year thanks to the donations they recieved at the first showcase. Hopefully this year they'll be able to send more!! The TURN OUT was very nice. Big Ups to everyone that came out and suppprted this very worthy cause. I was so caught up in the show that I truly forgot to take pics...LOL! The event was hosted by Ad- Lib (*uber-charming MC) & featured some of the area's most talented spoken word artists, including:
E the Poet Emcee (who always tears it down where ever he goes. Check out the flyer below....its for his next shin dig! Promises to be off the hook!!)
JaHipster (aka Dr. Hips aka my shero & ......she really has a PhD...YOU GO GIRL!!!)
WordSlave ( I'm still humming...."mmmm hummmm...Lord are you listening to me?")
Kelita Samone (This woman has one of the best female voices I've heard in a while.... Her voice ..her range and the tones are amazing. I bet any amount of money she used to be lead soloist in the choir)
Lyric the Lyricist & Archie the Messanger (The NEW dynamic Duo!!!)
Rebecca Dupas (Poetess/Educator/beautiful hostess of Warm Wednesdays @ the 5 Seasons!!!)
"Using the Sun's Energy to Radiate light in a Dark World" - Rah Energy
- I love that slogan. It is so very fitting for the ladies of Rah Energy. Always smiling....Always giving BIG hugs...Always showing genuine concerned. That is soooooooo very rare in the entertainment biz. I met these ladies last year at a Torchlight Event and was immediately impressed by their passion and enthusiasm for music and entertainment. They were the main people up in the spot hollaring out, "Torchlight" and they are Rah Energy...LOL! That kind of selflessness is not seen that often……particularly amongst people who are all on the come up. It’s amazing when you consider that the 2005 Happy Birthday Hip Hop Party (HELD EVERY NOVEMBER) was the first time these ladies hosted an event on their own. They are truly blossoming. I AM SO VERY PROUD OF THEM!!!! The original 4 ladies have inspired the desire to help the community in other people as well...looks like Rah Energy has grown....every time I see them, there is a new girl reppin. That is amazing. Keep up the miraculous work ladies!!! I have my eyes on yall! Thanks for giving me something ghood to talk about!
* Ad- lib is soooooo funny....I went up and introduced myself to him...LOL! he was like, "Oh yeah...you are the one that writes the long *ss posts...[using his hands for emphasis...LOL!] Yeah it's me, my brotha. It's funny cause he could have just been like "you sure talk alot". Sooooo very ....expect an Ad-Lib post coming soon! he he! That is as soon as I can get a music sampler - somethin from him! Ima have to get him to host something of mine as well very soon...this guy is hillarious! Plus he is into Hip Hop - for serious!
