With his sophomore album LEGACY entering the marketplace, all-around singer/entertainer Hightower – a protégé of the late Freddy Cole - is leveraging his R&B and Hip-Hop roots to entice more young people to dig jazz.
Tony Hightower is soldiering in his career in the wake of having just lost his mother and grandmother to colon cancer. Their departures have impacted upon him to not only be more mindful with his own health but to encourage others as well.

<![CDATA[Watch the Star-Studded 2022 Black Music Honors Airing on Bounce TV]]>Mon, 20 Jun 2022 23:48:58 GMThttp://whenwespeaktv.com/events_andmore/watch-the-star-studded-2022-black-music-honors-airing-on-bounce-tv​The 7th Annual Black Music Honors' highly-anticipated celebration of trailblazing music legends with exciting performances and must-watch moments is airing nationally on Bounce TV Saturday, June 25 at 7:00 PM during Black Music Month. The television special is energetically infused with the comedic and fashionable synergy of electrifying co-hosts Two-Time GRAMMY Winner LeToya Luckett and Comedian DeRay Davis.
The 2022 Black Music Honors honorees displayed the excellence of Black music culture as they were commemorated by knockout performances that took them on a nostalgic journey down memory lane with anthems that shook the airwaves and raised them to stardom. The long-awaited reunions of Kid N’ Play and Dru Hill manifested on the Black Music Honors Stage. The legendary groups didn’t miss a beat and had the crowd partying like it was the 1990’s.

​Other music icons honored were Dynamic Gospel Duo Mary Mary who invited fans to worship and turn up at the same time; GRAMMY Winning Singer-Songwriter Keri Hilson for her pop sensibility and swag as a songwriter; and Five-Time GRAMMY Nominee Tevin Campbell who was honored with the R&B Icon Award. For their nearly six-decade career, The Whispers took home the Legends Award and Soulful Singer Jerry Butler was recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his secular harmonies as the lead singer of the 1960’s group The Impressions.

​Honoree performances kicked off with powerhouse vocalists Tasha Page-Lockhart and Crystal Aikin who delivered a shoe-throwing worthy rendition of Mary Mary’s “Yesterday” followed by an energetic, crowd-rocking performance of “Shackles'' from sister starlets Ahjah and Rhea Walls. Songster Eric Roberson serenaded Jerry Butler’s “For Your Precious Love” with a smooth, doo-wap ensemble while music artists Jade Novah, Zonnique and Dondria Nicole turned up the heat with edgy performances of Keri Hilson’s “Pretty Girl Rock,” “Knock You Down,” and “Turnin Me On.”
​Crooners Eric Bellinger and Avery Wilson lended their smooth, buttery vocals to honor music veteran Tevin Campbell by performing “I’m Ready” and the viral hit “Can We Talk.” Teen Prodigy Keedron Bryant also honored Campbell with his own rendition. Other performers who graced the stage with Twitter-worthy performances include Carl Thomas, Kevin Ross, Amber Riley, Sheléa and more who delivered unforgettable performances.
Jermaine Sain of When We Speak TV, spoke with several attendees of the 2022 Black Music Honors.

Excerpt from krushbyjai.com
Jai became more passionate about making her own products when her mother, Vinnette, was diagnosed with cancer for the third time. While undergoing treatment from age 40 to her 60s, she noticed with every session of chemotherapy and radiation, her skin became even drier.
But by the grace of God, homemade body butters were close at hand! After a few short weeks of continued use, her Mum began receiving compliments on her skin from the Doctors to the Nurses, in addition to, family and friends after every visit for treatment. Though her Mum lost the battle to a rare form of cancer in February 2016, the desire to help others with their skin care needs lived on…Ashea!
