I am the girl who has jumped off the deep end and fallen in love with fashion. I love prancing around town in an outfit that fits my body and personality. You can find me on the clearance racks of H&M and Express (two of my fav stores) and at your local thrift store. I love fashion but not breaking my pockets, so I’m always on the hunt for deals and steals!

I am a lover of all things fabulous and fashionable (but affordable). In my former life I was either a major diva or sensational drag queen. Not quite sure of which one, but my love of MAC make-up, accessories, music, hair and need to overly exaggerate has followed me to this life. I am a chameleon, so my style and hair is always changing to fit my multiple personalities. I am a reality/sitcom TV and celebrity gossip junkie as well.
Screams of anticipation reach extraordinary volumes as concert goers cheer on the upcoming arrival of nine- time Grammy winner, John Legend, Halloween night. The house lights flash a bright red, the drummer pounds a few syncopated beats, and Legend appears, to high pitched fanatic screams, belting out the upbeat hook of “Made to Love” off of his recent “Love in the Future” album.
During a two hour concert at Durham’s Performing Arts Center Thursday night, John Legend brought his A game unleashing a medley of all his hits, new and old. Stage lights flashed in an array of colors and large screens correlated to each song, the audience was clearly embraced in a message of new beginnings and everlasting love. Crooning out sensual renditions of his newer songs “Tonight (Best You Ever Had)” and “The Beginning,” Legend brought the house down with his famous older hits such as “Used to Love U” and “Heaven.”
Sporting a trendy all black ensemble, the 34-year-old singer took full control of his audience bouncing back and forth from behind his trademark black piano to the microphone stand. Legend energetically commanded his audience to stand on their feet, clap and sing along. Enthusiastically, the crowd followed every command, never missing the opportunity to participate with their master of ceremony.
Legend, giving his band a break, took time to candidly recount his performance during the grand opening of DPAC back in 2008 and thank his faithful fans. Legend also made sure to actively speak of his campaign to defend voting rights leading into his poignant rendition of Harold and the Blue Notes’ “Wake Up Everybody.” Switching gears for a second, Legend showed off his piano playing skills with a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark.” Not long after, the crowd applauded as Legend played the recognizable beginning chords of “Ordinary People.” The building fills with the sweet melody of the audience singing “Take it slow” while Legend smiles gliding his fingers along the piano.
It is clear that Legend has come a long way from the meek gospel-tinged singer who hid behind the piano. It is evident he now enjoys being in the spotlight more than ever before. Running through his extensive discography and performance it’s clear that Legend is clearly living up to his name.
