called The Riverfront Jazz Festival, presented by The Black Academy of Arts and Letters. If you know anything about me, then you know that I enjoy concerts and festivals. Plus, the concert had a long list of artists the I enjoy, like Erykah Badu, Rahsaan Patterson, Rachelle Ferrell, Lalah Hathaway, and many more.
Then the idea came to me....why not see if you can obtain credentials to this event so that way you can meet some great people in the area plus have footage for your next video.
Needless to say, we did just that and we had a blast but there was one person that I wanted to see perform that I didn't get to see because her performance was happening during the time of the event that I was in Dallas for. That person was Rhonda Ross.
Then, around maybe March of this year, I started looking up the artist for the Atlanta Jazz Festival, which we have now covered for the last 3 or 4 years, and to my surprise, Rhonda Ross and Rodney Kendrick was listed as one of the performers! Immediately I was like, "Lord, this must be my opportunity"......then I was like forget this "I want to feature her on a segment of What Do YOU Speak?".
The month of April rolled around and I was going back and forth about reaching out to her because I was so afraid that she would say no.......but then finally I decided to put down my fears and reach out to her management. To my surprise, she said YES!!!!!
I gave you that long story to say, don't allow your fears to hold you back from what may be one of the most life changing events in your life!
I had so much fun speaking with Rhonda and she was so super cool and down to earth! I feel so blessed for this opportunity and I hope that this interview inspires you!!!!
