Last weekend thanks to the fab folks at Circle of One Marketing, I had the pleasure of attending the 8th Annual Jazz in the Gardens Festival and it was more amazing than I even imagined! Just when I thought it couldn't possibly get any better than the previous years the City of Miami Gardens surprised me by giving me So Much More! To say this was a wonderful event would definitely be an understatement! One of the most unbelievable music festivals one will ever get the chance to experience. This years talented lineup consisted of Host Michael Baisden, Fantasia, New Edition, BabyFace, Earth Wind N Fire, Monica, Neyo, Nicole Henry, Mary Mary, and Charlie Wilson among other local and not so local Artists! I can't even put into words what it felt like to look into the crowd and see thousands of people all having a good time, eating, drinking, doing the wobble and singing along to the hit tunes of their favorite artist. Allow me to share with you some of my favorite moments of the weekend.
Sisters Erica and Tina Campbell, Better known as Mary Mary have the voices of angels. Not only did they sing for dear Life their looks were beyond on point. Erica in the red and Tina in the striking blue with a super fab mohawk were both picture perfect. Let me just say if you've seen their hit reality show, the camera definitely adds 10 lbs. Fab from head to toe!
New Edition took me back to my childhood in an instant singing old classics like CandyGirl and Mr. Telephone Man, but when Mr. Bobby Brown appeared on the stage it was OVER! Don't you just luv how the right song can instantly take you back to that particular time and place! It was great seeing the entire group together and performing.
Ralph was always my favorite, Which one was your pretend man.....lol!
How many of you know those New Edition moves?
Before Jazz in the Gardens I think I'd forgotten just how many hits BabyFace actually had but rest assured he immediately refreshed my memory! Yes to babyface!
I know I've said it before but there's just something so calming and inspiring about Monica's voice. Its almost like she hypnotizes you when she sings! Definitely one of my favorite performers of all time! Monica always brings it! Her tribute to Whitney Houston that she does during her set is unbelievable!
For Day1 of Jazz in the Gardens I wanted to keep the vibe grown yet Sexy! So with that in mind I opted for this Pink/Peach sheer tube top Maxi from 2bstores, cream and gold wedges, gold chain and cuffs....The love I received from this outfit was everything and I thank everyone for the FIT luv! I felt like the Belle of the Ball and enjoyed every minute of it. Not quite the Angelina Jolie leg, but I'm coming for her, ha!Unfortunately I wasn't able to get picts of my look from Day2 so I hope I gave you enough with day 1.
