I am a young sexy female if I must say so and let's just say I was at the show and as a female MORRIS CHESTNUT was the eye dropper off the show for me. As far as performance this blog must be for 16 yr olds because no disrespect to Nottie but her presence was not ncessary for a charity. The
African family did very well the skit by shops and salons went well to promote the charity and I thought Mr Mac and Rhona stole the show. I mean lets give credit were credit is do Rhona hosted with Mr. Mac and they vibed on stage and then Rhona has amaaaaazing performances despite the issues with the screen and the lighting. To me thta is why the pro singers get paid they KNOOW HOW TO AJUST... PERIOD AND RHONA DID THAT her version of brige over troubled water was better then Whitney Houston. That girl has a mouthpieace on her that truly is a gift. It was appropriate for everything the charity seems to stand for and she is so beautiful in person much younger then En Vogue and her voice is more crisp and solid. I loved her new son I keep checking itunes so if any of you know when it will be up I am ready hell she made me give my last $40 of gas money to the charity. Are any concerts coming up for her not En Vogue I'd like to here her range again..... you go girl

Dallas said...

Yo I know I'm old school barber but I wish more people would have showed respect for what Mr Mac did Man the american airlines center is a tight place to have something like that for ud barbers to shine. They had a lot of models that gave there best and the routines with the dancers were tight BUT SOMEBODY PLEASE GET ME A PIN UP OF THAT JAMIE FOXX YOUNG LADY SHE IS SEXY AS HELL IN PERSON. I DIDN'T KNOW SHE WAS WITH EN VOGUE TO ME SHE SINGS WAY BETTER THEN THEM IN PERSON. YOU TUBE WITH HER AND THEM DO NOTHING FOR HER SKILLS AND WOOO ON THE BET AWARDS THEY MADE THEM LOOK OLD AND TIRED AS HELL. IF I AINT SAW DAT LADY IN PERSON I WOULD HAVE NEVER BOUGHT HER S*** GETTING OUT THAT GROUP IS GOOD FOR HER TO ME HER VOICE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON DREAM GIRLZ WHAT UP JAMIE?? YOU SHOULD BE SLAPPED FOR THAT. I HOPE THE CHARITY HELPS ALOT OF PEOPLES DOWN HERE LOOSING THEY HOUSE, CAR ALL THAT PEOPLE SHOULD SHOW MORE SUPPORT. AND I AGREE THAT NOTTIE GIRL AINT GOT NOTHIN ON RHONA LETS BE REAL.... ALREADY GET ME THE ALBUM IF SHE GETS THIS "will u holla at ya boy" come back to Dallas and perform your voice is like butter on toast girl.... and i agree SEXY AND NOT NASTY

The motivational speaker needs some love too. I am a mystic and the cards tell me there is alot of confustion and turmoil surrounding this event and its efforts to launch the charity. "man should always go with love" "love guides the soul to truth" "stripping away the layer of flesh to only soul will guide the motivation to see through" "rest,humble,and wait a man of haste never wins" "prosperity's views are always unconstant" "always follow the true light within" I had to comment on what is important everyone in this life plays a part in it for different reasons. It is like watching a tv show it can change make emotions so quickly by design in that the flesh acts in haste. Rest and play your part from the heart and the Charity and all involved will be okay but you have to kill the ego,the unsettled mind, and the flesh. All is possible and will be done in 15 days if you pay attention to your deeper self and rest a meditate before you move. "Limitless thinking is a truth of true self awarness of the being as a whole." LISTEN my brother in spirit and light, Listen. You already have the answers...

When did Rhona Bennett leave En Vogue I have Been a fan since the Mousekateer days she can sing still. Somebody let me know when she left I just saw her on the BET awards performing with Alicia Keys Rhona usually sings better then the BET awards but she still got the chops and on the red carpet Hell Rhonas picture from BET red carpet its my screen saver. Dawn Robinson yuck that's En Vogues problem child and nemeses. I didn't know news to me she left the group. Yall sure please respond I need to find Rhona I want her for my grandparent 60th anniversary party and seeing her perform brifge over troubled water my kin folk would love that. Mr. Mac how can I find Rhona please post... and How much does she charge??? Good luck with the charity hope you raise good funds

Dallas said...

When did we all start all this talking. The show was on the 27th right? Anyway my son showed me this sight and I see alot are jumping on. Is this a Dallas owned sight? I didn't know Rhona was with En Vogue is it just me or does she sing better then that to yall... ALREADY

Karen said...

Yes it was on the 27th weren't u there lol. Yes Rhona can sing better but thats the group she choose to be in. You can see and listen to her stuff by herself on you tube...

Dallas said...

Excuse me Karen where u from Arlington or Fort Worth. Thanks for the info, Everything is Everything. I just wanted to know how we all got on now? Where did you buy Rhona's Cd I gotta have it..

Dallas said...

Is it just me but mystic man I won't mess with you. Can you read my palm. I'm just a simple barber over her in Garland and Sunnyvale trying to keep money in my pocket. Let me know if Rhona is Married. God say ask an it shall be granted unto you.... peace and love

Harry said...

Rhona you are hot and can sing better then half the stuff out there. Good move leaving En Vogue I went to the concert in Chicago and sorry you stand out. Now I know why your beautiful Cindy is cute to she just looks stuck on herself. I just want to wish you well and do what you do you are the total package. Great choice Mac

Sweet said...

Good post Karen my daughter is wanting a celebrity at her sweet 16 and she is so into that MTV show. Mr. Mac you picked a great spokesperson very likeable in person. After she saw Rhona she asked if she does parties I told her no because she is with En Vogue. If she did leave the group does she do sweet 16 parties my daughter is doing the disney theme and wants her and justin timberlake.... That would take Jesus for real getting those two since they are from disney MMC. She wanted Raven Simone also but I don't know how to find celebs either. If you read this Mr Mac let me know.
