Derby Recap!

The 140th Kentucky Derby took place this past weekend in Louisville. The weekend started off Thursday night with Bell Biv Devoe performing at the 100 Black Men Gala, hosted by Louisville’s WGZB-B96.5 afternoon personality Keisha Nicole(Me…duh).

Also Thursday night rapper Yo-Yo took the stage at Ladies night hosted by Keisha Nicole. Saturday night, Ron Isley and the Jacksons made a surprise performance at the Grand Gala. Other celebrity attendees at the Grand Gala were Nicole Murphy, Jamie Foxx, Hosea Chanchez, Star Jones,  Regina Belle and Peabo Bryson, Ken Griffey Jr., Scottie Pippen and more.

I got a chance to cross an item off of my bucket list this weekend when I got the chance to meet Ron Isley. YES! He is the smoothest man in the game and  serenaded the ladies at the Grand Gala. HE STILL GOT IT. My all time favorite song is Voyage To Alantis by the Isley Brothers. Although he didn’t perform that song I was still left in awe. I meet celebrities all the time but it was such an honor meeting Mr. Biggs. Another special moment for me was bringing Bell Biv Devoe on stage. Listen, I’m in my 20’s but these guys are legends to me. To top it all off, The Jacksons made a surprise performance at the Grand Gala. I wanted to touch Jermaine’s hair so bad. It was SLICK! All in all this was a Derby to remember. No sleep, party & celebrate a 2 minute race with my friends for 4 days lol. My Iphone was on hand to capture the good times with friends!
