Check Out Mr. Amazing....on Keys

Check out this dude David Sides below on the piano. Am I late? This guy just took "amazing" to the next level. According to his Myspace page, he has been playing piano by ear since the age of 10. He is taking current chart topping songs to the next level. I mean, like who has the sheet music to T-Pain's, "Buy You a Drank?" Check him out. I posted a total of 3 of his videos...u gotta see for yourself what I'm raving about. The piano is my favorite instrument, I've been known to cry at the sound of a chord change. This brother got me in tears. I've never witnessed anything like this.

Mone't, thanks for bringing David to my attention.

NBA Entertainment League Tip Off Party

Hanging w/ my girls: Me, Lashan & Stephanie

This past weekend I did some work at the NBA Entertainment League's Tip Off Party. This is a full on celebrity and entertainment professionals league that was established 11 years ago to help market and brand the NBA. The NBAE league operates similar to the NBA, except the players are actors, musicians and entertainment execs, there's no pay, and they are not suited and booted when they arrive to their games. At this year's tip off party, there was a ring ceremony for the championship team, a player's draft and a hot performance by Ice Cube. Whoa!
And last but not least, I finally got the chance to do the Soulja Boy Crank Dat dance. Wow, watching the tutorial on You Tube really helped me out. Y Me Uuuuuuu (flying away now)

Me, Steph, Jamie & his girl.
(I didn't get her name -she was gracious enough to be a part of the photograph w/ us though)
