Everyday life experiences intrigue me,
motivating me to be the best me I can be. I come from a background of strong
religious beliefs and I may get a little wild and crazy from time to time as an
entertainment personality but there's a warm calm caring side of me and I enjoy
helping others. I love music because it helps put the reality of emotions in
perspective, any emotion that you have ever felt you will always be able to
find a song about it which also lets you know that you are not the only person
who has experienced a situation that you may be going through. I have been
inspired by music since I was a young girl, I started my own girl group we
rapped and sung, those where the good days. I remember one of my cousins taking
me to a concert my passion for music grew deeper and I fell in love with music
and entertainment all over again, looking on stage at the performers and
realizing all the hard work that goes into a show, at that moment is when I
knew music was meaningful, influential, and powerful, I wanted to be a part of
it. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University where I started my own radio
show and also during my college term I interned at WRIC Channel 8 News and WBTJ
106.5 The Beat in Richmond, VA. After graduating I landed a job here at WJJS
104.9/102.7 Jammin JJS bringing me back to my home-city. I’m striving to send
positive messages to the world and I aspire to walk up many avenues and take advantage
of the many adventures life has to offer and I won't stop, dreams come true if
you are a believer....AMBITION AND LOVE!
As most of our generation mourns the loss of beloved Kriss Kross rapper Chris Kelly, his mother is speaking out about the kind of person her son was.
As friends and family mourn the death of Kriss Kross star Chris Kelly, authorities in Atlanta say they are investigating the case as a possible drug overdose.
An autopsy is planned for Thursday morning, but police are already looking at drugs as a cause after Kelly, 34, was found unresponsive in his home on Monday, Fulton County police Cpl. Kay Lester told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Meanwhile, Kelly’s mother, Donna Kelly Pratte, released a joint statement with Kriss Kross’s former record label, So So Def, mourning Kelly’s death.
“It is with deep sadness that we announce that our beloved Chris Kelly has passed away on May 1,” the statement reads. “To millions of fans worldwide, he was the trendsetting, backwards pants-wearing one-half of Kris Kross who loved making music. But to us, he was just Chris – the kind, generous and fun-loving life of the party.”
“Though he was only with us a short time, we feel blessed to have been able to share some incredible moments with him. His legacy will live on through his music, and we will forever love him.”
Kelly and Chris Smith were both 13 when music producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri discovered them in an Atlanta mall. Their song “Jump” was a worldwide smash in 1992.
