Precise Live at The 25th Annual African Festival in Chicago, IL 2014 – Video – Pics

I had such an amazing time at The 25th Annual African Festival of The Arts. What makes this such a rewarding experiece is to think that my group Nubearth was kicked off the stage at this very same festival 20 years earlier for cussing on stage. NO CUSSING AT THE AFRICAN FEST!!!…LOL! 

Anyway I had an awesome time. Check out the video and the pics below.

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.

When I look back over my life experiences I recognize how the pieces fit together as if it were some well constructed puzzle. During my moments of reflection what always amazes me is that when I am in the midst of these experiences I do not recognize how they are shaping me or how they are helping to construct the nature of my journey.

What I have come to understand is that these experiences are neither good nor bad. They are events in our existence that make us who we are. They move us closer to our hopes, our dreams and our destinies.

Qualifying these events diminishes the purpose. We are human and it is not my intention to discount the innate emotions that we feel in moments of great despair and joy; however we must move beyond these emotions and continue to travel with purpose.

Our purpose is to affect this universe in a way that will add to the greatness of this life in this moment and for generations to come.

Do not be discouraged by a misstep, do not be carried away by a victory. We are not defined by these moments.

Our legacy is the definition of our contribution to this life.

Stay Focused, Positive and Productive

An Open Letter to Myself – Greatness!

Whew…This month has been very interesting and challenging. It has been a while since I felt so restless. I feel my passion growing. Im hungry. Im determined. 

The challenge is knowing that this is happening in stages, and for the most part I have no idea how everything is going to unfold. Anticipation, internal frustrations and hesitation sometimes cause me to linger on past failures, and ponder on the possibility of failure.

Image

Failure is not an option. Lingering in the past and nervous anticipation with respect to what the future holds is a distraction.

EVERY experience is important when it comes to the development of this amazing blessing. Every single person you meet, every one of those times when you felt slighted, each situation when you felt you were treated unfair and those moments when you feel like nothing is going right you have to understand that it is part of the journey. 

You are not here by accident. What you have to offer is important and necessary to the universe. Your energy and vibration add to the rhythm of life. 

Do not despair. Stand tall. Be certain in this moment. Live in this moment. 

RISE to the occasion! Bask in your GREATNESS! 

Stay Focused, Positive and Productive

2013 Precise Year in Review

1455040_614305075278211_1418248519_n

In November of 2012 I decided that I would not set a resolution for 2013. My goal was to be deliberate and purposeful as to what I wanted to attract into my life during 2013. I listed my Top 10 Intentions for 2013.

About a week ago a good friend of mine Lashawn Williams the Arts and Culture Editor of Gapers Block reached out to me with an idea. She suggested that I do a recap of my year in order to be clear about the accomplishments that I have made.

I thought that was a great idea, and because I did The Top 10 Intentions for 2013 it has afforded me the ability to look back and see how my intentions have panned out over the past 12 months.

Now…let’s take a look at my year…..

2013 Precise Year in Review

1. Have a stronger connection to the creator and keep my vibration high.

This is an ongoing journey and after this amazing year I know for a fact that this connection has grown and is continuing to get stronger in each moment. I know the creator is real and I understand that we have been given the tools to achieve greatness. My eyes are open wide and I am more in tune with who I am and the ability and gifts that I have been blessed with. I am grateful to the creator for this.

2. Develop stronger more meaningful relationships with my family and friends.

I have been blessed to have a circle of family and friends that are very supportive. This year has allowed me to be more attentive and has given me insight as to who has my back. I have met so many new people and strengthened relationships that I thought were over. The treasure is with our friends and family and I honor them.

3. Be the creator I am supposed to be.

This year I have embraced the fact that I am a creator. I have been more deliberate as to how this message of positivity and power is and will continue to be delivered to the world. I wrote some great video treatments and some amazing songs. The more creative and bold that I am the more I attract other creative people. Let’s continue to build. Greatness is on the horizon.

4. Finish 5 projects sell 100k independently

I didn’t finish 5 projects; However I did finally finish “Ladies Love Mixtapes”, filmed the video for the lead single “Take Our Time”. The listening session for ‘The Anti Skinny Jeans  LP”  at The silver Room was successful and “A Hate You Can Trust” by The Guild a project I am prominently featured on was released.

5. Go on World Tour and perform for sold out stadiums.

The world tour and sold out stadiums didn’t happen YET, but I did A LOT of shows, the most notable was The Main Stage at The Silver Room Block Party. I also made a couple of trips to Indiana. One trip was to perform at Hype Magazines 11 year celebration, then I went to Indianapolis to perform at Pure Passion West and I was interviewed by Taj Longino of TWTTV.com

6. Be more fearless.

Eliminating fear from our lives is what allows us to move without doubt. The moment we tear down this wall the blessing come. Im knocking down a brick in each moment. I am more open and more willing to be vulnerable.

7. Increase the flow of prosperity to me in the form of money and health.

I lost 30lbs this year!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!! I got a new car!!!  As a result of the shows that I have done the prosperity continues to flow.

8. Be the voice of Hip Hop Conscious Artists

I was featured in Yahoo Voices as Chicago’s most motivational Hip-Hop Artist. Thank you Jolie du Pre.

In July I was interviewed by City Vanguard’s David Weathersby

9. Buy Mansion of Star Island and Move To Miami

10. Buy Condo in Chicago Museum Park.

As the prosperity continues to flow and I know I am moving closer to this.

I am so encouraged after seeing what has been accomplished in 2013. This makes me more determined and focused. I am ready for 2014…Are you?
