So, I’m pretty excited about the weekend. I’ll be extremely busy writing and taking care of clients, but there will be some PARTYING going down! I haven’t been out in a while and I’m so pumped about reggae star Serani coming to Houston Friday night.
Serani’s had great success as a producer, working with Sean Paul and Tony Matterhorn. He also sings my jam “No Games”…an anthem for all ready to be real and get serious with someone.
As soon as I’ve recovered from that I’m heading over to Banana Bend Beach for a Jouvert experience. For those of you who don’t know what Jouvert is let me fill you in:

Jouvert is a large street party during Carnival in the eastern Caribbean region. Jouvert is a contraction of the French jour ouvert, or dawn/day break. (Borrowed that from Wiki). But in plain terms, here in Houston it is a part of our Caribbean Carnival – Houston CaribFest. We not only party on the road, we let it all hang out in a truck yard…yes I said a truck yard. Plenty of water from trucks spraying all over the place, party goers covered in mud and paint, and wining your waste in total abandon. You have to experience that just once in your life. Well, then you’ll be hooked. LOL! Come on and join us this July!

Well this weekend it won’t be the huge gathering of thousands…I’m thinking more like hundreds…but it will still be a blast! I will try my hardest to remain fully clothed….I’m not promising you anything.
What do you have planned for the weekend?
When Whitney Houston appeared on the scene over twenty-five years ago her career progressed at break-neck speeds for more than a decade. She established herself as an actress, singer-songwriter, and producer. For most of Houston’s early years she was considered a diva with little drama. In the latter years she fought her way through personal and professional struggles to reclaim her spot in the entertainment industry.
Born Whitney Elizabeth Houston to a family of entertainers, her chosen path was expected. Her subsequent success was phenomenal. As a teen she occasionally toured with mom Cissy Houston as she performed around the country. Godmother Aretha Franklin was the Queen of Soul and her two cousins, Dee Dee and Dionne Warwick, had made their own stamp on the music industry.
