Hello everyone, I hope you and your family are in good health. To my musical family and friends who have lost a loved one this month, my prayers and heart of love goes out to you. Remember God is still in control.

I want to start off with something happy and fun, beginning with my dear friend Travis Winkey. Travis earned his title honestly, “The Prince of Fashion.” He is always greeted with a standing ovation from the crowd when he enters the stage to announce his models. He has traveled the world and in his travels he has met many people from all walks of life. But, he has always stayed steadfast to his dream to be an extraordinary, successful and professional Black man in fashion, who has overcome insurmountable odds. When Travis struts on stage with perfection, the “catwalk” is all his. Believe me, he owns it! His gift and talent has gained him recognition and notoriety as the best of the best. If you have been to any of his shows, you know what I am talking about; if not you will have a real treat at his upcoming show.  It will be hosted
