“When I was 13 years old, one memory that I’ll never forget is on thanksgiving my dad came over to my grandmothers house and there was a whole spread of food out on the table from Macaroni and cheese to collard greens to ham and turkey and I fixed my dad a plate and he loved it. I said, dad I cooked all of this and at 13 years old in the 7th grade I cooked my first major holiday meal for my family.”
With the holidays just around the corner and families preparing to gather around the table with delicious meals and candid conversations, families will be experiencing a new normal with all of the shifts happening from the pandemic this year. However, you can bet your bottom dollar that the one thing that won’t change around the dinner table is the goodness of made from scratch dishes. From macaroni and cheese to candied yams to potato salad, none of these will ever be complete without good spices. After all nobody wants a bland dish!
“In 2005 my aunt passed away from breast cancer and as a child I was always in the kitchen with her watching her cook and cooking with her. Those are the memories that I have from learning how to cook.”

“It was a dream come true to see my mother, my grandmother, and my aunt’s story come to life. I have so much more respect for them as women and as artists. People are going to be so blown away by this story and understand why the Clark Sisters’ impact goes beyond gospel music. Their music was able to inspire so many artists from R&B to rap, and hip-hop. The sound that they had changed music because they had the Mattie Moss touch.” – Kierra Sheard (actress/singer who portrayed Karen Clark Sheard in The Clark Sisters: The First Ladies of Gospel Lifetime biopic. Quote from McDonald’s Black and Positively Golden).

Everybody enjoys a good R&B track, but nothing is better than a whole album that you can turn on and let play the whole way through. Black Rose gave true R&B lovers just that, an album packed with tunes from the beginning to the end. Actor and Singer Tyrese brought the genre back strong with one of the summers most anticipated releases. Labeling this as his last album, the Fast and Furious actor says that “I never felt this much success since I took control of my music”, debuting at #1 on Billboard top 200. The album features one hip-hop artist; Snoop Dogg in what he calls a “Jody and Rodney” track (Jody and Rodney where both actors in the John Singleton hit movie “Baby Body”), while the remaining features were fellow R&B singers- Chrisette Michelle, Tank, and Brandy.
