Mrs. Carter World Tour!!!

4 Feb

Last night Beyonce was absolutely incredible during her halftime performance. I, as well as many millions of people around the world would love to be able to command a stage like she can. All she has to do is stand and smize (smiling with your eyes) just the slightest bit, and she can have crowds of thousands screaming in disbelief. She has that IT factor that is intangiable. Along wih her flawless voice and killer bod, the Destiny’s Child reunion had me giddy and brought me back to my childhood.

Wait There’s More!

As a good friend of mine, William Reid, would say, hold onto your life alert kids! If a Destiny’s Child reunion and Beyonce at the halftime show wasn’t enough, Queen Bey announced that she will be going on a WORLD TOUR! I just about lost it after this announcement. I have been fortunate enough to attend one Beyonce concert in my life, and now with this world tour, I’ll be able to experience her talent in person for the second time!

As you can probably tell, I can barely contain my enthusiasm! Her concerts are truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I’m so excited that she will be coming back to Toronto.

Even though I don’t have tickets, because they are not even on sale yet, I’m very hopeful that I’ll be able to snag one up before they’re sold out and attend this concert of a lifetime.

Mrs. Carter World Tour here I come!

I have to admit, when it comes on to sports, I’m not exactly the biggest fan girl. Although I don’t spend much time watching games, I do enjoy attending them. The atmosphere of the crowd, lights, music and of course the athletes can transform any viewer into a fan.

This brings me to Super Bowl 47! There’s something about the Super Bowl that has the ability to captivate the world. The grand scale of it alone is amazing!ย Every year I tune in to watch what is considered to be one of, if not, the biggest televised events of the year. For those few hours its on, I am truly transformed into a mega fan, and although I don’t understand the rules and have difficulty keeping me eyes off all the very handsome men in tight pants, I truly have a fun time watching!

This year especially I’m so anxious for it to start. My favourite singer of all time, Beyonce, is performing the half time show! She is without question one of the greatest performers that has ever graced this earth and I can only imagine how spectacular her performance will be tonight!

Needless to say I’m looking forward to this Super Bowl and I’ll end today’s post with some good luck vibes for the team I’m cheering for tonight. Go Ravens Go!!!!

Oprah Winfrey Network Update!!!!

28 Dec

Okay! I’ve been waiting to be able to share this news forever. Some of you may know that last June I filmed for an up-and-coming show on the Oprah Winfrey Network. I can’t even believe that I’m able to say that I’m going to be on OWN ahhh!

Oprah has been and still is an inspiration in my life. Her story of being able to overcome such hard life experiences and then becoming such an amazingly powerful, philanthropic, well spoken, educated, respected and empowering black woman is absolutely astonishing. She has done so much in this world to help others and the fact that I was chosen to be on her new network is beyond words.

Back Story…

Last year at the end of grade 12, one of my teachers approached me and told me of the opportunity she heard to be on the network. The casting call description was simply for everyday people who had a story to tell. Not thinking very much of it, I wrote an email and before I knew it I was asked to be on the new documentary series called ‘Life Story Project’.
Airing Date OWN
On a Sunday afternoon not very long after, I was called to the Distillery District in the heart of Toronto and that’s where I was interviewed. With purple couches, people surrounding and an exciting energetic host, I was asked to share my story. I described everything leading up to my accident and explained how even after such a life-changing experience, I have continued to live my life to the fullest.

Long story short, at the end of a fun day of filming I was told I was going to be on the episode which would highlight a few people’s stories that fit under the theme of ‘Happiness and Perseverance’.

It’s Almost Time!!!

That is all I will share for now because I don’t want to give much away…it is only a half an hour show. What I will say however is that I am so honored for this amazing opportunity and I absolutely cannot wait to see how it turned out.

Once again the show is called ‘Life Story Project’ and I’m happy to announce that it will be airing on the Oprah Winfrey Network Wednesday, January 23 at 9:30 PM.

For more information check out the show’s website !!!
