Congratulations... Ground Breaking Ceremony for Dr. Martin Luther King's Memorial on the Monument Grounds &  Highlights of One Heart Charities Capital Star Talent Competition 

by Susan Mangatal

 

JesseJackson&AndrewYoung.jpg (29955 bytes)This week a "milestone" was accomplished!!!  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will be memorialized and honored on the National Mall, among many other great Americans.  The ground breaking ceremony took place on Monday, November 13, 2006, and President Bush and President Clinton were both in attendance, along with Poet Maya Angelou, leaders of the Civil Rights Movement including Jesse Jackson and Andrew Young, Celebrity Oprah Winfrey, Senator Barack Obama, and thousands of supporters who came out in the cloudy, cold weather to witness this great accomplishment.  President Bill Clinton signed the bill authorizing the monument to be build on the prestigious piece of land.  Dr. King's monument is the first on the mall honoring an African American, and its design is based in part on Dr. King's 1963 "I Have A Dream" speech.  It  will be built along the edge of the Tidal Basin on a four-acre plot near the Potomac River, midway between the monuments of Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.  

   MLKMemorialminipic.jpg (7380 bytes)The memorial is scheduled to open in 2008, and fundraising is still underway, however the official beginning of construction has not been announced yet.  Organizers have raised about two-thirds ($70 Million) of the $100 million needed to develop the monument.

President Bush addressed the crowd and stated the memorial will give Dr. King his "rightful place among the great Americans honored on our Mall", and further stated that Dr. King's message of justice and liberty "continues to inspire millions across the world".

President Clinton received standing ovations while addressing the crowd, he stated "It belongs here"!  "Jefferson told us we were all created equal, and Lincoln abolished Slavery; but both left much undone".  

Let's all celebrate because this is truly a great accomplishment!!!  

Please continue supporting!!!

Highlights of Capital Star Competition

Now that the Capital Star Talent Competition is taking place in Virginia and will continue for the new few weeks, the talent are more diverse than before.  This week we had several bands performing different types of music (blue grass, classic rock, etc.)  A fabulous Hula Dancer even competed, as well as a contestant that performed a wonderful country song.  Again, I had the pleasure of working with Robert Bates (Well known area drummer who has been performing for a number of years, and currently a part of Woodson Brothers Gospel Band out of Nashville, Tennessee, and also currently owns his own tour bus company), along with DJ Nose  (The most versatile DJ in the region).

Hollis " Flash" Lashley - our wonderfully funny host always does a  great job keeping us entertained.  Good Job "Flash"!!!

Last week's winner "Scryptur" performed for us and as I stated last week, this young man is fantastic.  Due to some minor "glitches" with his CD, he asked the drummer from JFC Band to accompany him.  He performed two of his own originally written rap songs and did really well.  Again, he had the entire place "rocking"

Check out the winners bio below

1st place Winner - "Tumblin' Thunder" Band Performed Original Song "Traveling...Rock Me Mama"

Thumblin Thunder is comprised of Carl Lee Higgins (make-shift washtub bass and vocals, Miss Carmella McMurtry (fiddler) and Houng Dog Sherman (Guitar and Lead vocals).  All are Virginia natives the play traditional bluegrass songs, as well as renditions of popular songs in bluegrass style.  Hence the name "Tumblin Thunder", they do a little of tumblin' with the traditionals, and a little bit of thunderin' with the more current rock and pop songs.  Carl, Carmella and Houng Dog are classically trained musicians and came together in 2006 with a common love for the music of Ole' Dixie.  They plan to continue laying their blend of the old and the new in bars and on street corners all through the area.

2nd Place Winner - Edith Sodollo Accompanied by Vince Parrish on GuitarPerformed original song "I Don't Want To Be that Kind of Girl"

Edith Sodolo can be found showcasing her singing/songwriter talents around the Washington-Metropolitan area at various venues and music festivals.  In a recent article by Unknown Legends booking agency's owner David Hughes, he describes Sodolo's vocals as "raw, but oh so powerful".  Ms. Sodolo was born in Melun, France and her opportunistic parents moved to the U.S. to raise her in Silver Spring, MD.  Her eclectic upbringing is the very thing that allows her to relate to many kinds of people and draw them in with her heartfelt lyrics and magnetic voice.  Sodolo is currently working on her demo and preparing to tour in a music festival of other local acoustic soul artists entitled Heavy Heart Hillary: Festival for the Longing.

3rd Place Winners - Duo Vinnie Johnson and Nonya Whitley

Performed - "If this world was mine"

Vinnie and Nonya are both dynamic vocalists.  Their voices blend together for soothing yet exciting renditions.  Vinnie Johnson, known in the music circle as "Vinnie Vill" grew up in Brooklyn, NY.  He's been singing in vocal groups since age 7, and in the 70's he won first place at the Apollo Theater.  Vinnie is not just a singer, he is also a songwriter who has produced over 40 songs.  Vinnie is a member of ASCAP and has been the opening act for several acts including CC Penniston and R. Kelly, as well as with the Dramatics and Delfonics.  Since Vinnie moved to Alexandria he assembled a team of rappers, singers and producers to keep his hip hop past alive.  Nonya Whitley is originally from Peekstill, NY.  She was raised around so many different cultures which has allowed her to be exposed to many different styles of music, Reggae music, Latin music, hop hop, Country, R&B, Gospel, Jazz and Classical, of which all are incorporated into her style of singing.  Music is what soothes Nonya's soul, but most importantly she hopes one day she can minister to others through song.

Join us for Week 6 Competition at Oasis on the Occoquan and check out the wonderful talent.
