Fantastic evening. Months ago, I thought it would be a good idea to take my away for a delightful weekend. I purchased tickets for this event because I wanted to give my wife a special treat ( being that the line-up was all female ). Needless to say,,, the ladies did not disappoint. We were entertained beyond our expectations. My wife was thoroughly overwhelmed by the talent and the atmosphere. We hope that the promoters assemble this line-up again.
Favorite moment: Gail Jhonson's rendition of Marvin Gaye's "I Want You" and Karen Brigg's performance

​Jazz in Pink was Hot Hot Hot!!!!

This entire show was at its ultimate best. If you missed it, you missed a dynamite time. If it's provided in 2013,....Count me in
Favorite moment: Not to take away from the bountiful of talent on that stage, but Karen Briggs blew me away

An entrepreneurial “Harp” full of soul

San Diego, California (6 August 2015): To infiltrate the upper echelon of the Billboard album charts with an ancient instrument while cross-pollinating musical genres certainly has taken the imaginative vision and inspired creativity of a trailblazing entrepreneur. On September 26, urban-jazz harpist Mariea Antoinette will receive a Phenomenal Women in Entrepreneurship Award from the National Council of Negro Women, the 49th annual community event in San Diego, California at which she will perform.
