Super Freestyle Explosion Saturday, November 14, 2015


    As a kid, music and making movies were my two greatest loves. When I was in the 5th grade my parents bought me a camcorder for Christmas and soon after I created a pretend show I called "Party Line". I, of course cast myself as the host of Party Line (think Richard Blade's character from Girls Just Want To Have Fun) and my show consisted of me introducing recording artists as they sang and danced to their newest releases. My sister and our friends would pretend to be these artists and would lip synch the songs before I interviewed them. I have countless hours and plenty of video tapes at my parents house with all of these performances. It was my most favorite thing to do and speaks volumes about the person I've become and my love of pop culture.

     A few months back, fab friend Rhonda told me about a concert she read about where many of these artists from our childhood would be performing. The roster was definitely impressive and I soon bought  tickets for this show. The concert was happening at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA and I couldn't be more excited to see and hear some of my most favorite singers from my childhood. I knew my sister, Mairim and her husband would also want to come as would Rhonda, LeAnna and Wendi. We were all set and I soon was on iTunes brushing up on all of the hits from the singers and bands that would be performing. Obviously, it was time to create a Fab Mix in order to get all of us in the mood for this epic concert. It is amazing how quickly music transports us to our youth and can bring back feelings and memories we felt when we were little kids.

    The concert was a ton of fun as we all sang and danced to some of our favorite music from our childhood. The funny thing about getting older is that you forget that other people get older too. I was probably a little over 10 years old when most of these songs were released and was not expecting how old these performers now were. When did Young MC become Old MC?  Aside from the sad realization that we have ALL gotten older, it was a fun night and I'm glad I had the opportunity to re-live my youth if only for one night.

    Enjoy the Fab Mix my Fab Friends!!!!
