MICHELLE WILLIAMS ON THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW

This is the first time that I’ve actually sat and listened to Michelle’s track ‘We Break The Dawn’. I like it! But Michelle’s live vocals sound a little off in parts……… And look at Wendy’s hair (smh) What was she thinking? Wendy is one strange old bird…… Any way your thoughts please….. Michelle performs ‘We Break The Dawn’ Michelle sits and chats to Wendy

UK EVENT: LIVE & UP

The up and coming Live and Up community event, that is set to take place on Sunday August 17th at Burgess Park,  will celebrate the London Borough of Southwark and the diversity of cultures that reside in Southwark.

Directions to Burgess Park: Buses: 12, 35, 40, 45, 63, []

STROKE KILLED ISAAC HAYES

Soul legend Isaac Hayes, who died aged 65 on Sunday, was killed by a stroke, US authorities have said. The musician’s doctor listed it on his death certificate, while there has been no post mortem, said Memphis sheriff’s spokesman Steve Shular. Mr Shular added that Dr David Kraus was treating Hayes, who suffered a stroke in 2006, for high blood pressure. The Oscar-winner was found at home by members of his family lying next to a treadmill which was still switched on. []
