Chicago Unity – 12th Annual Silver Room Sound System Block Party – Eric Williams

 

crowd

These days if you ask anyone outside of Chicago what their thoughts are on the city, you will hear words like war-zone, killing, and dangerous. I couldn’t fault them for using such words because Chicago is definitely in the spotlight for the recent amount of shootings and deaths that seem all too familiar.

If you ask native Chicagoans about the condition of the city, you may hear conflicting perspectives dependent on what side of town they are from. Chicago is the most segregated city in the United States. I see this everyday. I feel like this is the source of our problem. This segregation breeds misunderstanding, poverty and lack of gainful opportunities.

Underneath this history of segregation something else is happening in Chicago. There is a sense of community and understanding that is being cultivated. If you listen closely you can hear the heartbeat. The Arts are the heartbeat.

Precise and Eric Williams

For the past 12 years Eric Williams owner of The Silver Room jewelry store in the  Wicker Park community of Chicago has hosted the Sound System Block Party. Every year is an amazing experience and this year was no different.

This event represents what Chicago can be, and that is a true community where cultures come together in peace and love. Dj’s, painters and musicians converge and bring an energy of creativity and enthusiasm that can’t be denied.

My set at Energy Alley was AWESOME and I want to thank Dj Kwest_on for rocking with me.

My favorite part of the block party are the Dj’s. Im giving a special shout to Dj Tess, Dj Kwest_on and Larry Miller for rocking dope sets last night.

Dj Ron Trent brought everything together. He started his set off with Maya Angelou’s Poem “Phenomenal Woman” and after that the crowd went wild. What an amazing night.

I appreciate Eric Williams for sharing his vision with us and acting as a hub for the artist throughout the entire city. The spirit of love was all around and I would like to say thank you on behalf of Chicago artistry.

My sister Joelle Lamarre kicked off the festivities with her rendition of “Summer Time” from the George Gershwin production of Porgy and Bess. She totally brought the house down.

Jennifer Ligaya of Intellectual Radio held down her duties as the hostess impeccably. The discussion about relationships covered everything from the first date to the first “kiss”. She also did a piece called “Curiosity Killed The Cat”…lets just say the room was STEAMING!!!…lol

As we played the EP I was surveying the room checking for responses and I loved what I saw. “I Like It” and “Take Our Time” seemed to get the best responses. My supporters let me know how much they loved the project.

Nothing brings the season of spring in like Mothers Day. I’m not usually a fan of all these corporate driven holidays because of how they basically create this excitement around one day pretty much for the purpose of getting your money, but Mothers Day is different.

The past few years of my life have been a journey of change and inconsistency. Experiences and people come and go. Many times during this change it has been a challenge to develop a true foothold just to get centered and affect change the way that I would want to see it. People that I thought were in the supporting cast of my life were just passing through.
