Flatted Fifth Jazz Vespers Series: Newark, NJ

The event was held on February 26, 2011 at the Memorial West United Presbyterian Church in Newark, NJ. The show featured jazz singer Carrie Jackson who is a native of Newark,NJ. She is the president of C-Jay Records. She has produced her own albums. She performed songs such as "God Bless the Child," "Take the A Train," "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow," "His Eye is on the Sparrow," and more. She has such a magnificent voice and it has so much soul. The band that played with her is call Jazzin' All-Stars which featured Norman Simmons (piano), Thaddeus Expose (bass), Earl Grice (drums), and Cornell McGhee (Trombone). The event also introduced a young talented girl named Hasadiyah Wheeler, a young woman that we all need to look for in the future. This is the second Jazz Verpers show I attended, the first one featured Antoinette Montague and the Bill Easley Quartet and a young guitar player Solomon Hicks.

Newark, NJ Bucket List: 15 Fun Things to Do Before You Die

When some people think of Newark, NJ all they think about is crime, poverty and drug related issues. Newark, NJ has come a very long way since then and I commend the govenrment for their efforts. I've lived in Newark all my live which will be 26 years on March 29th and I've seen the ups and downs of my city. No matter what phase it was in, I still had hope it will get better and I still loved my hometown because it made me the stronger individual I am today. I'm here to show you that the city Newark, which is the largest city in New Jersey, has something to offer. We will keep rising to the top.
