On Tuesday April 29, 2014, I went to the Taste Entertainment Showcase. Reginald TorianThere I got to meet some famous performers like,  the lead singer of the Impression, Mr. Reginald Torian Sr..There were other great singers there as well. Some of them song their own songs and some of them sang other peoples songs.

I was glad that I went because the Taste has reopened again under new management. So if you’re interested in coming out to the Taste again, come on out because I bet you will have a great time like you used to have back in the day.  I remember the stepping on Sundays and on ladies night.  When I went on the 29th of April, performers like Johnnie G from Chicago, and Terisa Griffin who has been singing professional for about 20 years. She first starting singing with the Ice man, Jerry Butler.  She’s  been on the voice, The Oprah Winfrey Show and has met Diana Ross. She also trained with a vocalist named Romeo, he worked with Micheal Jackson. She has an organization called Better Loving Yourself and gives kids foot lockers filled with all the supplies they need to attend college. She has been doing this for over 8 years. Mrs. Griffin is coming out with a new CD called ” It’s Clarence SpiveyTime For Music”.

Other performers like Dr’s. Claude and Dena Spivey were there as well. Dr. Claude Spivey was a member of the band called ” Parliament funkadelic.


I have functioned as a Business and Media Consultant over the past sixteen years and spent many years developing my capacity to function in our ever evolving use of technology, communication, education and training.
