Audible Pleasures: Lecrae Anomaly Tour

Remember a couple weeks ago, I talked about how much I loved Lecrae’s new album, Anomaly. Well I was able to get a pair of tickets to see him in concert for the Anomaly tour. I did not know what to expect actually. I’ve been to many Christian events and in contrast, many hip hop concerts but not a Christian hop hop concert. This was different but it was EVERYTHING and more. I always say music is the universal language because it brings together people from various walks of life. Young, old, Black, White, Latino, Asian. All there to enjoy this amazing performance by Lecrae. It truly was a blessing! The show had a opener, Andy Mineo, who I had never of but was incredibly energetic and the perfect opener for Lecrae. My friend and I were Google-ing him like who is this cat? She downloaded his album on iTunes right there. Lol. image Continue reading

Favorite Movie of 2014: Beyond The Lights

I’m a sucker for romance movies. I’m also a sap. So that combination means when I see these types of movies, I must have tissue on hand because I already know the tears will be flowing. One of my favorite movies is the Notebook and EVERY time I watch it I cry. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Lol.

Enter Beyond the Lights. From the moment I saw the trailer, I knew I had to see it. Apparently the trailer deterred some from going but like I said I’m a sucker for romance movies. Plus it had two black actors as the lead, one of them I’ve dubbed as the Denzel of our generation. I had to see it. Well let me tell you it didn’t disappoint. I’ve seen it twice and wouldn’t mind seeing it again. And yes I cried both times. It took me seeing it two times to be able to write about. The first time I had to digest the marvelous work I watched and the second time I knew I had to write about it. The cinematography, music, acting was just SUPERB! After all, it was directed and written by Gina Prince-Bythewood, director and writer of Love and Basketball.
