Hello all you buzzers!
As you know Jaki is a huge supporters of the arts in all its many splendid forms! As you may recall Jaki’s Buzz covered an “Arts Council of New Haven” event in a recent episode called “Exact Change” which was held on a New Haven city bus! Jaki met Sharece Sellem who was the MIME performer and instantly became a fan of Sharece’s amazing talent! You can catch the episode here http://youtu.be/R4ZXCvCLiBE where Jaki also interviews Sharece. Below is some wonderful tidbits from a recent huge evening of Sharece’s, who is college bound and in need of as much funding support as possible! Read below about Sharece’s evening and join Jaki in supporting Sharece’s education on August 20th where Jaki will be host of Sharece’s next exciting event!
“What an amazing night it was! Lyric Hall was alive on Saturday July 30, 2011 with folks from all over to come and support Sharece’s cause. The evening began with an open bar and a viewing of David Seplveda’s artwork. Dorothelia Barnett, CEO and publisher of Beautifully Inspiring Women Over Forty Magazine, introduced the night’s performances. The first act, Greg J., shared “Unthawing,” one of his own songs and later performed, “Your Never Around.” He was refreshing and a great addition to the show! Sunny’s Secret, a film wriiten & directed by Sharece, filmed by Jet Paine impressed the audience with it’s avante garde style and serious yet artistic content. The highlight was, “The Art of Adaptation,” an autobiographical playlet about Sharece’s artistic life up until now. Sharece’s family members are depicted as she explains through a recorded narration, her struggles and triumphs-while increasing her creativity. Afterward, all were invited to make their bids for the paintings and enjoyed the hot hor’dourves served up by Mike Mrasik.”
