NOTE: This event, produced and promoted by Vanita Applebum Entertainment, was very much welcomed and missed after well over a year in hiatus. It is also a great event to get re-establish and reacquaint oneself with progressively positive and business minded folk into the arts. The only problem was the attendees' in the peripheral of the stage were tooooo loud and rampaged the atmosphere of the performances. Spotted were St. Louis Posts' Kevin Johnson, singer Sineta, Vector Communications' Rebeccah Bennett, attorney Michael Walton, Frontline's Brian Stemmons, promoter Monica Tyson, educator Renee Thomas Woods and socialite Damon Green.
