A Conversation with Stacey DJHotWaxx Hale

The Waxx, The Waxx, And Nothing But The Waxx...

In my recent years, I've come across a few DJs and some leave their mark.  This one is no exception.  DJ Stacey Hotwaxx Hale is a bad girl because she plays as if her life depends on it. This talented DJ and Producer has been involved with music since she was a little girl.  One of the 1st woman to mix and spin on reel to reel in Detroit.  

This woman had many 1st and remains just as humble about it all.  Her life story has always involved music.  Detroit is her home and will always be.  In my conversation with Stacey, she shared a lot of stories, experiences, her love for buying vinyl and shouted a lot of people out.

Stacey is not only passionate about music, but she’s also passionate about passing on all that she knows to others.  She’s a teacher, a motivator, a giver and a passionate person.  This lady is one of the kind and will be remembered for all that she's done.

What a night! We’d like to thank everyone that came out to support The Connection- Behind The Groove Event where proceeds went to MS. Every little bit will help to make a big difference.

The Life of A Visual Artist

The Life of A Visual Artist

The life of a visual artist.

Being an artist is one thing, however, being a very talented and forward thinking artist is something else. To know that you have a gift and present it to the right audience, can also become a challenge.

A visual artist wants the ability not to be boxed in doing what people think they should be or what they should do. They merely have a creative thought and want to express it on anything they can put their hands on canvas, paper, walls and as well as clothing.

Phyllis Robinson knew she was an artist since she was 3 years old. Being a shy person, she looked to art to be an outlet to help in expressing herself. Her work is more reflective of the contemporary side, the revolutionary size, the political side.  Phyllis has since realized that her art has a voice and it must be seen and heard.

Lisa Lee had recently discovered her visual talent side about 8 months ago. She was drawing previously and stopped due to becoming a wife and mother at the time. Now, that her home landscape has changed, she feels that the rediscovery of her skills and love for visual art has come directly from GOD as a second chance at it.


These ladies brought their passion and their sense of humor to RCR! Presents Real Discussions to our show a few weeks back. They shared with us what it's like to have this gift and not necessarily know what to do with it at first. Then, over time and experience, they've learned to accept it and not compromise it.

Attending art shows and gallery's, they've found that they often times are the only females there and/or Black as well. It hasn't stopped them in continuing to pursue what gives them joy. Being a visual artist has not only blessed their souls but also those that have their art on the walls.

We wish them both continued success and remember to...

~ Never let people stop you from doing what you love and what gives you life.
~ Art is a form of expression and when done right, it touches someone's heart and soul.
~ It doesn't matter when or where you start, just start.
