Hello everyone! I truly hope everything is well with you. It has been a sad couple of weeks for me, because of the passing of loved ones. I have been to several funerals and viewings in the last couple of weeks; David “Hollywood” Hollingsworth; Gabrielle Goodman and David Bun’s Mother, Elizabeth Gambrill Bun; Dr. Doo-Wop, Howard Easley’s brother and renowned popular drummer, Bobby Ward’s brother, John Ward who was a renowned saxophonist. However, it’s my duty to cheer you up and my deepest condolences to all the families.
We will start off by talking about a friend of mine Hassan Rasheed, president of New Africa Community Builders (NACB).New Africa Community Builders is a non-profit interfaith organization armed with a simple but profound mantra “Our Community, Our Responsibility.” (NACB) has sponsored nine New Africa Community Festivals celebrating the excellence throughout the community under Rasheed’s leadership.

For the first time ever, they are hosting the “baddest” show, bringing the old Pennsylvania Avenue back from the good old days to the Baltimore community with “The Royal Theatre Reunion” featuring; The Manhattans, featuring Gerald Alston, Ray, Goodman & Brown; Dynamic Superior; and Crosswinds live on stage for your entertainment pleasure.

Now check this out, you will be able to go to two events in one day, plus/or do a bus trip.
