I would have never imagined that from the first time that I heard music that I would be so in love with it. I have to have music in my life every single day. It just calms my spirit. It soothes my soul. It is so good to my ears. It's so good to my feet. My spirit just smiles every time I hear it. Music is THAT powerful. And I'm so glad that RCR has some form of impact and influence through music. March was a music madness month! We've just had so many wonderful events that we were a part of-- I don't even know where to begin.
Being involved and co-hosting one of Atlanta's #1 house day parties was great. DJ Kemetik was one of the featured DJs and it was just a GREAT day in the afternoon for us. People enjoyed themselves, they had a great time. And to see the sea of people in the room dancing and vibing to a form of music that I love so much was AWESOME! I want to thank EVERYONE who came out for that seeing them wearing their RCR T-shirts was just a very humbling experience. Then we took the movement down to Miami-- South Beach if you will-- for the Winter Music Conference. To be able to have my DJ play in a historic hotel, The Chesterfield, where previous house DJs played years before, was just an epic day for us. It was a good day, great energy in the room, and everyone enjoyed what he delivered. So that was a good day.
To wrap it all up, being able to have Soul Spin Youth DJs play at Urban Grind coffee shop here in Atlanta, I always enjoy when they come because they are always excited about music and what they're doing through their DJing skills. We're thankful to Trey West allowing his kids to spend an afternoon with us. But what really softened my heart was that my son, Christopher, had DJ'd for the VERY first time ever. And had a WONDERFUL experience. NOW we might have a new hobby, we'll see!
There's just so much to do in the area of music, it touches so many lives. And yes, again, I am very thankful that the little contributions that I am able to make through music is well recieved, accepted, and touches the lives of many. Real Chicks Rock!
