A Conversation with Kathleen Bertrand

Some people have the ability to make things look easy, classy and appear seamless with effort. Fortunately, Kathleen Bertrand is one of those people.

As a child, Kathleen knew early on that she loved music and was even more intrigued with all the 'behind the scene' details that are needed to do things right.

Kathleen has had a beautiful career as a singer and songwriter. This didn't happen overnight but has spanned over 30 years as an artist. She has worked with and performed with so many from Roy Ayers to Chaka Khan and more.

When you have someone that has been singing for over 30 years, you must know that travel comes with it. Her beautiful voice and professionalism have taken around the world. Even with that, Atlanta has will continue to be her home.  This talented mother of 4, has no signs of slowing down. In her mind, there's lots of good music the perform, share and give. 

 

“Music is the healing force of the universe.”
— Albert Ayler

7th Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival 2017

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream! 

Ice Cream is one thing that most people enjoy and can't seem to get enough of it. For the past 7 years, the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival has been held in downtown Atlanta at The Meadows at Piedmont Park and this year's event was a great success. 


This free family fun event is always open to the public. The festival was an all day event from 11 am to 6 pm with every possible style and flavor of ice cream you could think of. Over 120 vendors and sponsors participated. There were amazing Live entertainment and lots of activities were going on for kids to the adults; Wellness Activities like Yoga, Exercise routines, and the kid's zone were available. It was a nice day and the best time to get out and have some fun in the sun. 


We give thanks to the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival for allowing Real Chicks Rock! to come on board as a sponsor this year.  It was a wonderful opportunity and experience of connecting with the many facets of people (close to 20,000 people) who participated.  We look forward to joining forces with AICF in 2018.

Programs That Work...

On Sunday, May 21, 2017- RCR! Presents Real Discussions ~ Topic: Kids Are People Too. The focus was on Programs Designed To Stimulate Their Minds. Our guests were very insightful regarding our kids today, their patterns, theirs habits and the peer pressure they face on a regular basis.

Our guest Christen Munroe is the founder of VS Alternative which offers kids (boys from ages 12 - 18) a safe space to perform gaming activities.  Remembering what he was like as a kid and the love that he has for his younger brother, helped to birth the concept. Christen is currently in law enforcement and has decided to give back to the community and help young teens stay off the streets.

Our other guest, Valeria Vincent comes with years of experience in teaching and works along side Christen in the program.  She shared with us how teaching has changed from traditional classroom settings to homeshcool to even virtual.  Despite the freedom of not having to physically sit in a classroom, the student and parent still have a huge responsibility in getting the work done.

Gaming is designed to use the old and new concepts to work together. It's teaching young men how to think outside of the box, leadership, team building and a sense of belonging.  Social media will be used to help create positive competition between the players/teams.  This program is designed to have teen boys be present with gaming and take their minds off other distractions that could lead them into trouble.

If you want more information about VS Alternative, gaming and other educational tutoring, contact them at VSAlternatives@gmail.com

We wish VS Alternative all the best, as this program will be embraced by schools, after school programs and organizations, one community at a time.

Until next time, be humble and continue to...#ROCKon
