So I know you are wondering…what have you been up too?? I know…it’s been a while since I sent any updates and I’ve got some exciting news!
I just posted a video clip of my upcoming video for “Beautiful” on my blog. I had my videoshoot 2/19/11. It was soo much fun! Continue reading
This is what happens when you forget the camera is rolling on a music video set. LOL!! Continue reading
May you enjoy family and friends and please don’t forget to give thanks for all of the little things we take for granted each day. Please take the time to reflect on your blessings. No matter what’s going on in your life right now, there are many things to be thankful for.
I had to share this pic I was tagged on Facebook today. It just really touched me. To think, how my life was when I was young and innocent … I never have thought I would be the woman I have grown to be. I really don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the traditional sense, but I am counting my blessings.
Peace and blessings and happy holidays!
I hope everyone is doing well. Eh…haven’t been through wordpress in a while have I? I know…I know…bad jai. I’m not even going to lie and say I will do better. I realized this weekend that I have way too many websites that I am either maintaining or have tumbleweeds running across the page. So I’m going to start deleting some pages. Maybe that will leave me more time to blog…
So what have I been up too? Grinding…being my own everything. Being an independent artist means you have to wear “every” hat not only the artist at least until you build up that ‘A’ team.
November 13 – I will be in ATL again! wooohooo! I will be one of the features at Urban Grind Coffeehouse. The name of the event is called Do You Lyric Lounge. If you’re in the area, make sure you come through! I’d love to see you…come up and say hi and make sure you grab my CD, “Vocally Yours”.
Speaking of which…I have one of two contests today available to anyone that is following me on Twitter and Facebook. So if you are not following me on either, connect with me. On Twitter, you can find me at www.twitter.com/jaiMoi_Songbird. (yep…someone beat me to jai Moi on Twitter…guess they like the name also – hint hint). On Facebook, like me at www.facebook.com/jaimoisongbird. This is my new fan page so help me build it! Pass the link along and come through often!
This CD giveaway hint is: There is more to a name, than meets the eye. Let that marinate a bit, add my pages, and get ready to answer that question when it is posted.
I have been so busy that I couldn’t even blog on my album release day! LOL But now…I can breathe again… wooosaaahhh….
October 5th was an awesome day! I feel so blessed! Vocally Yours was officially released and I’ve received good reviews thus far. I performed at Yancy’s for Women that Jam! The event was hosted by NABFEM (National Association of Black Female Executives in Music and Entertainment, Inc.) which I am now a proud member! This was the last of their showcases at Yancy’s this year. So if you weren’t there, you missed a helluva show! Everyone was terrific! And Cocoa McMillian showed her ass OFF closing off the night. It was a very successful event! Thank you to everyone that came out to support me, the event, that bought a CD and who sent me well wishes! Even if you were not able to attend, your thoughts and kind words were very appreciated. And that’s my word…
Shout out to my talented musician friends that had my back: David Holmes, Rodney Winley, Sheldon Pugh, and David Littlejohn. You guys rock and you sounded soooo freaking awesome! =) My soul sister Taunnie had my back with the vocals. Thanks sis!
Vocally Yours can be purchased on my website or on Amazon.com.

Yesterday was pure awesomeness! – that is if it was an actual word. Lol! We had a great session. Long but wonderful. David did his magic with those sticks and the solo that Chris (guitarist) did for one of my songs… Let’s just say he is my Carlos Santana! :) Rodney (bassist) is a gem – irreplaceable. Thank you guys for coming through for me and being so dedicated.
God is good – all the time.
This is truly a happy and blessed Sunday.
Songs for today: Fly by yours truly; Closer by Goapele
I’ll check to see if I got any good footage from the session. I haven’t look at what my boy recorded yet.
Now to run into Harris Teeter to get some OJ and turkey sausage. Gotta start my day off right with that Vitamin C.
Peace and blessings.
