How Connected Are You?

I’ve been thinking about this for years, for myself and for the creative soulz that I pay attention to.

I have spent numerous hours researching and listening to videos, podcasts and simply following those identified as influencers.

It really doesn’t make sense to beyond you need to connect.

Years ago as I researched the music industry, I heard it said (and I will reference this often) when people start writing about you, that means they are paying attention and that’s what you want, that’s when you know you have made it.

There’s an honoring when people are talking about you, writing about you, sharing about you to their people and networks.

Do you know The Who’s in Your Life as a Public Entity?

Who’s your Real Fans?

It’s one thing when we try to tell you who we are and what we do, but it is a greater thing when others are doing it for us.

Our Fans are our BEST form of Promotion.

So it’s time to pay attention to who is paying attention and sharing….not just showing up, but encouraging others to pay attention too.

What if, just what if we did this for each other…the ones we claim to appreciate what the are doing.

It’s something to think about, right? 🤔

I’m Excited To Be Writing As An Accredited Blogger/ Journalist of LadyFlavaNews

As I’ve been exploring what direction I wanted to take my support of indie creative soulz, I felt a shift coming. I lost interest in radio and even making promos for others, but I found a passion for telling peoples stories. I want to write my truth about what I feel or what I experience. I want to give creative soulz the opportunity to tell their story.

Many times in the Indie Arena of Arts and Entertainment the world never hears about the amazing talents out there. There is very little online documentation of creatives that we may cross paths with in person or online.

Years ago, as I was researching the Music Industry…I came across an Artist House video where the industry person said, “you know you have made it when people start writing about you.” This information has stuck with me.

In my move to Las Vegas I have met and experienced many great talents. I have spent numerous hours researching Vegas Entertainers, Black Vegas Entertainment and have found little or nothing on these performers.

So, I came up with the concept of “Tell Your Story with Flava.” Giving an opportunity to seasoned entertainers to have their story documented. I’ve only done one so far but my goal is to open this up to creative soulz from near and far.

Although, I’ve been writing reviews and blogs or doing vlogs for years…I’ve never just focused myself in this direction. God and I have had many conversations about what I should be focusing on as a supporter of creative soulz and right now it’s writing, vlogging and taking pictures.

I’m excited and I welcome you to follow my journey in connecting with creative soulz in Las Vegas but not limited to just local talents and businesses. Yes, I love writing about my experience of encountering small businesses too.

Remember When We Went To Record Stores? #ThePowerOf60+

Remember when we valued music?

The Dj’s would announce the new release and their release dates and we went to the record store to make our purchase.

Now in this era of digital downloads, artists struggle to gain support from fans and to make money from what they create.

We can find a way to bring back that feeling and support of music, right?

1st written 4/26/2016

I remember as a preteen, teenager and adult when I was so excited about going to the record store and buying new music as it was being released. I was so anal about my music to the point I organized it by genres and artists. I had a hot pink 45 holder and they were organized too. It’s was almost like owning trophies that were on displayed and talked about. You didn’t want to lend them out (45’s & 33’s) with fear that the became scratched and would skip when you tried to play it. Then we moved into 8 Tracks (that was short lived) and cassettes were the new trend. You could get a cassette recorder and record your favorite songs off the radio. The problem with cassettes was they could be ripped apart or wrinkled and stop playing but we still loved them.

In 1979 the Compact Disk Aka CD was created. Cars hosted the ability to play this form of playing music and easy ways to safely store them for easy transport from home to car with a variety ways to play the CD’s. CD’d still exist in 2022 but not has accessible as it was even 10 years ago.

Now we live in the digital area of every thing… music can be streamed on line, through music streaming platforms such as Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music or YouTube. Internet Radio Stations and Podcasts Shows are popping up across the globe. So many outlets to be heard on.

But have you ever heard of someone bragging about owning an MP3 Digital Download or who talks about seeking out streaming outlets to listen to their favorite music? Maybe it’s a Millennial thing. My generation doesn’t talk about buying digital downloads and listening to streaming music…some of us still have stereo systems and own albums. Also, many people my age don’t understand the concept of digital downloads and how to even do it.

I see that some are bringing back the 33’s and resurrecting this long ago means of listening to music.

What are your thoughts about the value of music and how do you experience your favorite music?

Also, while I am at it do you listen to new music or do you stick with the classics, cover songs and oldies but goodies?

How do listen to music?

BRAVO…Avana Christie, “The Best of Me” Musical Concert #LasVegas

“The Best of Me, Avana Christie”

“The Best of Me” Presented by Avana Christie and PM Productions, was an experience that I was excitedly anticipating.

I was once apart of Avana Christie’s team when she put on the phenomenal concert R.E.S.P.E.C.T. here in Las Vegas. I willingly accepted this responsibility of tickets and merchandise, but hated to have missed whole experience of the performance. The audience raved about their experience as they exited the theater with praise and excitement.

So, this time I attended as a journalist and fan.

Avana Christie aka Peachy One did not disappoint. 🍑🌟🍑🌟🍑

Check out the snippets that I am sharing with you below. I just wanted to give you a glimpse into the world of a polished Las Vegas and World Entertainer, Recording Artist and Actress on Stage and Film;

Miss Avana Christie.

As you can see from the photos and video snippets I’ve shared above, a lot of hard work, rehearsals and plotting & planning went into this production and experience. Avana Christie took us on a journey of her life as an entertainer from early days in church, sharing the journey that took her around the world and then what she has to offer people in Las Vegas and coming to Las Vegas. In my opinion, The Peachy One (as she is fondly called) is the whole package. Great vocals, engaging presence and thoughtful stage presentation. She hand picked her background singers, and musicians along with the dancers and visuals displayed through pictures and videos with on the overhead screen.

2 of Las Vegas Favorite Entertainers, Denita Asberry and Bobby Rose joined in on this fabulous affair and wowed the audience with their music flair.

Avana took us on a musical journey through songs like: Everything Must Change, Tell Me Something Good, Midnight Train To Georgia along with a variety of other classics….Then the moment came when she performed her New Single, “Peachy Wit Me.” The audience loved it.

Pay attention to the dancers 😁

Although there were some minor glitches, I wholeheartedly feel this was a wonderful production and experience. With poise, pizazz and phenomenal talent not only from Avana Christie but from her background singers and band gave a great concert experience at the North Las Vegas Library Theater. I sincerely say “Bravo” to Avana Christie and her Team. A production like this could not be pulled off without a solid team and I know from experience that Avana was very selective in who she asked to play a role.

I would encourage you to follow Avana Christie on social media and her website : You don’t want to miss her next performance and concerts.
