What’s Life Like Living with Lupus?

RCR! Presents Blog Image (Living with Lupus Episode).png

Often times we think about Cancer and Diabetes as diseases that impact us the most.  Well, we shouldn’t disregard the power that Lupus has on the individuals it tries to attack. 

RCR! Presents Real Discussions talked about What’s Life Like Living with Lupus with two women who refuse to lose.  They are not just survivors, but winners.  My guests Joelle May and Adrienne Allende have decided they would not lose in the daily battle with Lupus.  These ladies have decided to win each new day that they’re given. Yes, it’s like that! It’s a daily decision to want to beat it and not give in to how you might be feeling.


The interesting thing about this is that both of these women were diagnosed with Lupus at different times in their lives not knowing that they had anything wrong with them to begin with.


It has changed them both immensely where some of things that wanted to do and/or used to do can no longer be considered an option. Having children, relationships, careers, etc. are we’re tough decisions that had to made in order to focus on their health each and everyday.


Lupus is a complicated and unpredictable disease. You don’t know when symptoms will strike or how long a flare could last. The uncertainty of how you can be impacted will very from day to day and throughout the course of the day.  To make a donation to the local chapters, go Lupus.org.


Feel free to learn more about Lupus and the women who have decided to fight everyday on the Real Chicks Rock! YouTube channel.

RCR! Presents Blog Image Josh Milan.png

What can you say about someone who can do it all?


RCR! Presents Real Discussions was honored to have A Conversation with Josh Milan.  He was transparent about his love, likes and some struggles with music.  His struggle: He wanted to become a musician...YES. However, wanting to be a singer...NO.


Born in Brooklyn, NY, Josh shared with us some key things that helped to mold him into the man we see and hear today.  From his influential cousin to a business turned friendship he still has to this day with a musical icon.


He’s very good at what he does and is committed to it. As he continues to love the power of writing music, we will continue to hear beautiful lyrics and melodies from this gentleman from his label HoneyComb music.

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.

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

A Conversation with N'Dea Davenport

Music is The Key to...LIFE! 


I always start off my show by saying "How super excited I am" and this show was no different.


My first guest was so soulfully funky, sassy and intelligent. Her name is N'Dea Davenport. N'Dea was a triple threat early on...singer, dancer, and actress. She never wanted to compromise what her goals and objectives were. She had several opportunities to sing background vocals from Al Jarreau to Madonna. ...singer, dancer, and actress. She never wanted to compromise what her goals and objectives were. She had several opportunities to sing background vocals from Al Jarreau to Madonna. 


N'Dea knew what she needed to do and was willing to take the risks. She stuck with her goals and dreams from Atlanta to California to Europe. Been signed on a record label early on, she met this amazing group of guys that formed The Brand New Heavies. Their chemistry mixed well where N'Dea brought the right type of vocals that worked extremely well with the band's sound. 
Being a singer/songwriter opened different doors and opportunities for N'Dea as she's worked with several people from Natalie Merchant to Louie Vega. Now, noticing the changes in the industry, she's working on a project that will introduce a vibrant way to listen, dance and interact with music.

The Importance of Self Care

RCR! Presents Episode 50

The Importance of Self Care…

It sounds so simple, but yet overlooked.  Often times, we get up and go without taking enough time to ensure that we’re applying the proper self-care for ourselves.  We need to be able to ensure that the necessary steps are taken in order to keep ourselves strengthen on a daily basis.

As people of color, our day to day struggles, opportunities and/or challenges can tend to be different than what other races and cultures might be faced with.  It’s unfortunate, however, very real.  Our thoughts consist of dealing with micro aggression in the workplace, chronic stress and climate changes and challenges within the current society.  We are a resilient people, however, we still need to provide self-care.  It could be as small as eating more vegetables, taking breaks throughout the day to stretch more or going to be early.  These are just a few small, simple and yet significant ones that can be incorporated.  

The SisterCARE Alliance is designed to give people (both men and women) the tools needed to begin a self-care regimen and lifestyle.  The majority of the recipients are women, however, men have been on board and supportive as well.  Anana Harris Parris, Founder of Sister Alliance spoke of this vision as she was going through her own discovery in need of self-care.  The self-care guide titled 'Self-Care Matters – A Revolutionary’s Approach' helps individuals address and undercover all areas that are needed.  By taking one step at a time, having someone hold you accountable and seeing your growth from one week to the next is what it’s all about.  The goal is for individuals to adapt to a self-care revolution; owning what they need and being able to identify those critical needs on a daily basis.  

 

For more information about obtaining a self-care revolutionary life, go to www.sisterCareAlliance.org or send an email to sistercarealliance@gmail.com.
