Black History Month on KQED and other performances

The day after I returned from the Super Bowl, I performed at a Black History Celebration Presented and sponsored by KQED and Union Bank, in collaboration with Afro Solo, honoring individuals whose work has helped to create a better Bay Area for all.  I accompanied the always brilliant Robert Sims (my classmate at Oberlin!  Go Obies!) in performance of African-American Spirituals.

The program will be broadcast on KQED, Channel 9 in the San Francisco Bay Area, on Sunday, February 17, 2013 at 7pm, Monday, February 18 at 1am, and Saturday, February 23 at 6pm.

Who dat at the Big Game?

I was at the Super Bowl!!  I'm sure most of you have seen Stevie Wonder's commercials for Bud Light (VooDoo, Luck Chair).  Stevie gave a concert at the Bud Light Hotel in New Orleans the night before the game, and I was lucky enough to get to go to the game the next day!

New Orleans was abuzz with excitement, and the 49er faithful were out in full force.  Unfortunately, my home team didn't win, but thanks to an exciting 2nd half (and the weird blackout), I had a great time.  I was decked out in my nephew's 49er jersey, and my sparkly, gold sneakers, but I guess my voodoo wasn't strong enough lol

Nate Watts and me arriving in NOLA - I know,  I know, purple jacket and shoes, but I really was excited for the 49ers!

See!! I told you I was cheering for the 49ers!! : >
