About The Kierrah Foundation:
The Kierrah Foundation assist young women who have "aged-out" of the foster care system. Many of these women are young mothers themselves. The Kierrah Foundation's objective is to empower former foster girls to become self-sufficient and avoid the pitfalls of aging out of the system which can include poverty, homelessness, victims of domestic violence, substance abuse, prostitution, gang affiliation, aimlessness and automatic slippage into welfare and perhaps the most frightening for these young women, losing their own children to the foster care system.

Ethnic World Queens will walk the Red Carpet at the "Healing Through Music 2"

Kierrah Events & Velvet Ropes ENT Presents:
(Los Angeles, CA) – On Thursday, September 30, 2010, Kierrah Events & Velvet Ropes ENT presents the second showcase in the series entitled Healing Through Music.  This showcase is subtitled “A House Party with Pepper Mashaylocated at the legendary Jewel’s Catch One Disco in Los Angeles, CA.
It’s a House Party!! House is a style of electronic dance music that originated in Chicago, Illinois, USA in the early 1980s. It was initially popularized in mid-1980s discothèques.  House Music is strongly influenced by elements of soul- and funk-infused varieties of disco.
This slamming party features Disco Diva Pepper Mashay.  Pepper has sung for such artists as Tina Turner, Cher, Mick Jagger, Keb Mo, Celine Dion and many others.  In 2000, Pepper exploded on the music scene with her hit “Dive in the Pool” (an unofficial song from Showtime’s “Queer As Folk”).  In 2005, she released “Send Me An Angel", the classic 80s pop hit with a remix by Dave Aude’ and “Beauty Shop” from the MGM movie DVD featuring Queen Latifah.  Pepper’s new song “Freeway of Love” has a jumping video and was released in February of this year.  The video has quickly made its way up the National Video Charts.  Pepper has performed at countless Festivals, where she rocks “Cosmic Love Juice” and “Love & Understanding” to a roaring crowd.
The night also features House Music Mix Masters DJ Lovey C and DJ Sexy Claudette.  Both former DJ’s at Jewel’s Catch One Disco, the two have jammed House Music all over the West Coast.  As an added treat, Songbird Aquilah Ali will take to the stage.

Ethnic World Queens on the Red Carpet with Trueful and Xango Henry

Trueful & guest artists Dru Hill H-Town & Ricky Jones shake rattle and ‘rock’ the LA Convention Center at The Old School Meets New Skool R&B concert

Trueful & guest artists Dru Hill H-Town & Ricky Jones shake rattle and ‘rock’ the LA Convention Center at The Old School Meets New Skool R&B concert – by Eugenia Wright aka Kleopatra Girl

“An all points bulletin had mega reach to celebrities and media alike.”

It was touted to be the “R&B” concert of the millennium but the word on everyone lips post concert was “rock.” I’m talking about Trueful’s CD release of “Taste of Class” at the Old School Meets New Skool concert held at the LA Convention Center. Posts comments from the crowd was “It rocked!”

The “rockin’” weekend started the day before the concert at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel LAX where the main acts to perform, Trueful, Dru Hill, H-Town and R&B crooner Ricky Jones convened for a press conference. There, an elaborate buffet of cheese, fruit, vegetables, chips, dips and drinks were served. An all points bulletin alert from the PR Office (ISA PR) went out on the wires and the media turned out in droves. Comedienne Annie McKnight who kept things wildly lively and fun moderated the conference. There were a few celebrity supporters such as Irene Mama Stokes, Oakland’s finest R&B princess Dvyne (also a reporter for Soul Beat), actor Isa Hall and child actor Anthony Hobbs who were on hand to offer congratulatory comments. Media took plenty of photos snapping Trueful, Dru Hill, H-Town and Ricky Jones aka “ The King of Hearts.”

Expectations for Trueful’s CD release and the concert had been heightened for weeks prior to the event. Everyone was expecting a turnout of celebrities and music groups. Did they deliver? Yes!!!! Resoundingly so. Celebrities included: The legendary Chambers, Brothers, former lead singer for the Temptations Louis Price, R&B princess Dvyne,music producer AVI, Rapper Lil’ Zane, The Circle, producers APT 6, Young Wisdom, Rapper T, Miss Tami (The Lyrical Boxer), folk singer Martha Liz, singer/TV host Porscha Coleman, R&B singer Maiya Sykes, DJ Tre Luv and from the world of film and TV; actor Quinton Aaron (The Blind Side), actor/filmmaker/writer/producer

Sy Richardson (Posse) and his lovely wife Theresa, actress Suzette Tomlinson, Irene Mama Stokes, international film star Xango Henry, Melissa Grimmond (Zane’s Sex Chronicles), former Barker’s Beauty Kathleen Bradley (“Mrs. Parker” in the cult classic movie Friday), actor Vincent M. Ward (True Blood), actor Isa Hall, TV producer Cher Rue. From the modeling world; Playboy model Josie Goldberg, sultry and exotic beauty Donna Rowe (cameras could not get enough of this one), Joslyn Pennywell (America’s Next Top Model), Fiu Fiu Brazilian bikini wear model Allyson Flores, stylist Krystal French, child model Anthony Hobbs. From comedy, Annie McKnight and Kymedienne. Industry moguls included Jarvee Hutcherson (Producer and founder of the Multi-Cultural Motion Pic Assn.), Tanya Kersey (Producer/founder of The Hollywood Black Film Festival) and Leo Rodgers (Sr. V.P. of Bungalow Records). From the fitness and dance world I spotted Kali Muscle and Sam Bell of Sam Bell Body, exotic beauty Daychia and The French Royalty dancers. To top it off there were about 14 to 20 of the most beautiful women from all over the globe representing the pageant contestants from the Ethnic World Beauty Pageant and their founder Aiisha Ferguson. Each contestant was wearing their country’s sash and crown. Their presence took the red carpet from star studded to ionospheric brilliance.


It didn’t take long for the performing groups to raise the temperature in the house, also. Trueful delivered an electrying performance working the house and the ladies in the audience as did H-Town who knocked the boots from the convention center to the Staples basketball hoops nearby. Women were heard screaming throughout the venue and Dru Hill who were the last to perform ended the show with a big wail and shouts and screams from the audience. I could relate totally as I lost my voice at the end of the evening from announcing everyone on the red carpet. But, would I have it any other way (????). No way!

French Royalty Entertainment should be commended for putting on a concert (their first major by the way) on such a mega scale. Team Trueful (Eunice Moseley of The Pulse of Entertainment and Eugenia Wright of ISA PR) contributed immensely to the success of the event also.

The grand LA Convention shook rattle and rocked all night. If you don’t want to take my word for it, take a look at the links provided.

From start to finish people were standing in front of their seats. They just could not sit down. It was R&B but it felt like a Rock concert. Reports are that Trueful and French Royalty Entertainment are planning to take the show on a national tour. Possibly Oakland then Baltimore then on to Miami and Atlanta. Rock on R&B!!!
