Last Thursday, May 14, 2009 Alistair Records and The Urban Network hosted a reception honoring the achievements of Stephen Hill (President- Music Programming for BET Network), Charles Warfield (President- Inner City Broadcasting), as well continue the festivities in celebration of The Urban Network’s 21st Anniversary. The event was held at the Canal Room in New York City. New RnB recording artist Chanj performed in honor of this special occasion and brought down the house! He passed my litmus test of singing live and I’m excited to see his album drop later this year. Get hip to him by listening to my interview posted before this event (http://ifelicious.com/?p=2351 …I’ve been jamming to his single “Maybe” lately). Chanj was accompanied by DJ Scratchator who rocked it on the wheels of steel and kept the crowd on its feet throughout the evening.
Folks, I popped my cherry and joined the paparazzi ranks. Watch out! Things are on the up and up by the day. I’m feeling humbled, blessed, and excited all at once to be living the fruits of following my passion.
Here’s a link to the photos I took. Enjoy!
Shout out to Simone Smalls PR. As my team at my last job used to say when giving a nod to someone in anonymous recognition “you know what you did.”
