Behind the Scenes with my friend TJ

Last week I went and saw my all -time favorite singer, Rachelle Ferrell at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood. She was amazing as usual and after 20 years of following her and seeing her perform, I am still amazed. After the show I chatted with her sound engineer, Terry Jackson (TJ), well-known as being one of the best sound men in the business. You name an artist, he has probably worked on their album or tour. He invited me to come and hang for a bit at the rehearsal of the new EWF / Chicago tour. I love music and to see my favorite group behind the scenes was a blast. Thanks a million to my friend, TJ, for the VIP treatment.

Celebrity Trainer Valerie Waters

This is behind the scenes picture of Valerie Water's photo shoot for her new "I want my Bikini Body" workout. I got a chance to meet Celebrity Trainer, Valerie Waters, last week at a commercial shoot. We hit if off and she asked me do her and her models' hair and make-up for her new workout. Valerie is the creator of the Valslide and is regularly featured on Access Hollywood and E! News. She is the first person called by Hollywood’s elite when they need to either get in shape or stay that way. I use my Valslides to keep me in shape when I can't get to the gym.
