BLACK HISTORY MONTH REVISITED

This is one of those must watch videos. Meet 106 year old Virginia McLaurin. Mrs. McLaurin was born in 1910 when William Taft was president.  She was married at the tender age of 14 and widowed at 17.  She has lived through 18 American presidents.

Two years ago in 2014, McLaurin received an award in her hometown, Washington, D.C. for volunteering. She spends that time with students who have mental disabilities. When she was given the award, she indicated to a reporter that her one wish was to meet the President of The United States. It took two years but she was invited to The White House this year for Black History Month.

McLaurin was so elated to see President Obama and The First Lady that she broke out in a dance.  This is truly a Black History Moment.

“I always tell people, live the best they know how,” she said. “Don’t steal. Don’t cheat.”

WHITNEY HOUSTON ON TOUR

Whitney Houston is back in the news because there is word that she will be going on tour soon.  Okay, of course we all know that Whitney died over 3 years ago but…. plans are to bring her back to life via hologram.  A hologram is  a three-dimensional image of an object that is a photographic record of light interference patterns produced using a photographic plate and light from a laser.

Images of Whitney Houston holograms

Rolling Stone reports:

The late Whitney Houston will return to the stage as a hologram next year. The project is being organized by Hologram USA in conjunction with Pat Houston, the singer’s sister and president of her estate.

The virtual recreation of Houston will be a multimedia endeavor. Not only will the hologram premiere at a U.S. venue and tour the world, but the content created by FilmOn Studios will be syndicated across all digital and cable platforms. The show will be interactive and feature the singer’s greatest hits alongside as-yet-unannounced special guests.

I want to know.  Is this something that you would go to see?  Let me know what you think.  In the meantime, enjoy Whitney singing “I Have Nothing” from the Bodyguard soundtrack.

THE KING OF POP LIVES ON……

It’s hard to believe that it has been six years since Michael Jackson’s death (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009).  I remember the day he died and I also remember a few family members and friends calling to check on me because they knew how big of a fan I still am of this iconic individual.  I think we all know that there will never be another to come and do it like Michael did it.  He mesmerized the world for the most of his life and truthfully he still continues to amaze.  I’ll leave you today with a few words from THE KING OF POP……. Gone Too Soon.

THE BEST EVER… DANCE – ISH

This is a video you just must see. The dancer is Kenichi Ebina and he is the winner of last year’s “America’s Got Talent”.
With the kind of amazing body control that this guy has, it is easy to see why he won. I remember seeing some of his other out-of-this-world performances as well. I’m sure that you will love this.
