Brenda Harrelson-Staton friend of Danny Woods, went to the North Carolina Music Hall Of Fame and spoke with the Director of the museum in memory of him for January 12th!  When I asked for the Beach Music community to assist me in getting proclamations in each city where her performed Brenda stepped up to the plate and assisted with the City of Charlotte!  Im hoping to get all four of the proclamations added into the museum one day!

It was important to receive a proclamation from his city of birth, Danny Woods Day is officially March 27th on his Birthday!  Initially I asked for a key to the city and I was told that Keys to the City and another award were only given to the living!   I’m proud that the Danny Woods’ proclamation set the tone and inspired other families with loved ones in the public eye to receive their very own proclamations on their loved ones birthdays in Atlanta also!

 

Charlotte was written by myself and his niece Leah Woods! When I asked the beach music community to assist in making this happen Brenda Stanton was hands on, she sent emails to the office of Mayor Liles!

GVani Music produced by Jorge Milliano

 

 

 

The night before I boarded my flight to Jamaica from the first stop of my vacation Toronto!  I received this dope press kit from Jorge!  Congrats on your new single GVani and Jorge!

(July 3, 2018 – Boston, MASS.) Completely revamping his sound and following his true path, R&B singer G.Vani returns with a collaborative record featuring Jorge Milliano  dubbed “All Night.”

“I took a little hiatus from being an artist and focused more on the songwriting route, but after some time I realized I was sitting on a bunch of dope records. Rather then let it go to waste I decided to put together a project while also rebranding myself with a name change. I looked at my strong points and felt that creating more R&B records was the best path going forward.” G.Vani explained.

This crossover record has appeal across the board with spicy Summer vibes that will get dance floors moving from Boston to the Caribbean and back again.

“This record is for East Boston and Dorchester, and everyone in between. The Latin culture is heavy out here in Massachusetts from Puerto Ricans to Dominicans, Colombians to Mexicans and Central Americans.”

Combining tropical sounds with Latin two step rhythms and exotic lyrics G.Vani and Jorge Milliano prove they have the chops to croon with the best of them targeting the rapidly growing Latin market on radio.

“I basically linked up with a long time friend of mine who already produced records for several major Latin artist in the game and we decided to rework an old song of mine. He took the vocals and put together a fresh new vibe. The end result was a single that I think has the potential to make it to radio and beyond,” G.Vani said.

“We wanted to create an island vibe but with that Top 40 sound, dedicated to the females letting them know we gonna do it All Night whether it’s dancing, making love or simply vibing out. This song is about love, having fun and making people dance.”

Accompanying the single, G.Vani and Jorge Milliano have created a lyric video for “All Night” that is chock-full of tropical vibes and visual effects.

 

“The song incorporates my Puerto Rican roots and with the Latin Trap genre booming right now I think it was the perfect time to share with the world that side of me. There’s alot of artist trying to crossover and I think with my writing abilities and melodic sound I have what it takes to take full advantage of that wave. With that being said this is actually the first record where the audience gets to hear me speak Spanish,” G.Vani explained.

Going forward G.Vani has a listening session and performance planned for his closest friends, and local taste makers, while he also has plans for meet and greets at clothing stores across the area. Look out for the release of his next project Based On Her set to debut later this year.

Fashion International Group Boston

 

 

Hello,

here is a repost of my Interview earlier this year. The original post was shared over 70 times and then my website crashed. Let’s continue to share it with others aspiring to work in the fashion industry! Thank you to my international supporters who post my work and direct fashion and music lovers to my website!

We had a chance to chat with FGI Boston Member, Natalie Mason and here is what we learned…

What is your profession / role in the fashion industry?
I was born into a family of tailors and artists so we always worked in the industry. My dad is an upholstery king in Toronto, Canada! I worked for various leading luxury brands in the fashion and beauty world and was trained by the finest houses. My current role in the fashion industry is curating scent and clothing wardrobes for my clients. When I am not styling my clients I write about and promote my talented family and friends on my website.

What is your personal philosophy about the fashion industry?
Study your craft, be true to yourself, wear what you love and make your own rules! i.e This year Disco is trending but in my world Disco is forever.

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment professionally?
My biggest accomplishment was styling singer/song writer and music producer Vivian Sessoms for Grammys 2018. She is responsible for many hits that you have danced or sing to, you also saw her on tour with your favorite artists from Cher and Pink to name a few. http://luxshop4u.com/vivian-sessoms-grammys-2018/ . I’m also excited about when I was selected at the Boston Fashion Awards as Boston’s top Wardrobe Stylist 2017 I was happy to be in great company with other successful Boston Stylists! I dedicated my award to my sister Pauline in heaven.

What inspires you?
Music, 1970’s fashion, and My loving family inspires me each and everyday! They are the most creative and fashionable people that I know! I am gearing up for my late father-in-law Soul Music Icon Danny Woods proclamation ceremony on March, 27th! After his death I wanted to put a smile on my grieving families faces, particularly my husband so I reached out to the music community, fans and mayors to help with this project and many others! So not only do we have one but we have 4 Proclamations in Atlanta, North Myrtle Beach and Charlotte North Carolina. PBS will be there to document this historic day! This week we contacted several media and music outlets to prepare for the week ahead! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1921554397879360&id=1201501463217994

We are so happy to have you be a part of FGI Boston!
