If you've heard it once you've heard it a million times bu it's true, When you love what you do it will never seem like a days work. My love for blogging and celebrating music brought me to the 10th annual Jazz in the Gardens Music Festival this past weekend leaving me on a sensual natural high. High on the love of music, high on seeing over 100,000 of my people gather to celebrate and have a good time, high on the artist, high on the food, and a total high for the City of Miami Gardens for once again pulling off a fantastic event. If you call yourself a lover of the art then this was definitely the place to be. Allow me to take you on a brief recap!
One of my most favorite performances of the festival came from Run DMC! The crowd went absolutely nuts when Rev. Run let us know the crowd didnt come to see Rev Run but Mc Run and he was ready to let him loose on us complete with some of the most beautiful curse words ever heard. Keep in mind he asked God for forgiveness and all was well! Lol! Fantastic and an incredible performace I will never forget.
My Boo Maxwell closed out the show on Sunday night and man oh man I'm not even sure if I can put into words the Magic that was his performance. Can we just get into his suit! Yes Maxwell Yes! Were you all aware that he sung at my wedding? Lies! But I did walk the aisle to This Woman's Work which to me makes us family! Thought I would lose my mind when he performed Fortunate! Maxwell sounded like it was just yesterday that he did the original recordings of his biggest hit but he let the crowd know he's been in the business for 20 years. Luv this man for lyfe!
