Y'all KNOW I love me some Ms. Erykah Badu. She is like ... church. I always feel like I've been blessed when I hear her music and last year when I got to see her at JazzFest, I was BEYOND exuberant! So when I heard there was going to be a play at the FringeFest that celebrated her music, I was like ummmm I'm not sure. My friend Sarah (who makes me look like a someone who just bought a cd before b/c she's the ULTIMATE fan having seen her over 10 times!)and I were skeptical to say the least. But it was such a good show (I wrote about it here)! The ladies did the music justice and I really enjoyed myself. So when I heard they were doing a new show, I got UBER excited!!! They've added new music and all! Well, then something crazy happened. I got an email from the woman who wrote the play! She somehow ran across my blog post on the show and contacted me. She wanted to say she appreciated my review. We chatted a bit and she WOW-ed me. She's amazing. She's from Lake Charles, La. and just always liked to write. Here's the thing, she's so talented. She not only wrote the play, she is one of the actresses and she can BLOW! I haven't met her in person yet but I could feel her spirit through the email. I really like her. So I am so excited to go see the show on March 20 (who wants to come with?!?!)! Hmmm, I wonder if she'd like to be the next person I profile on "She Makes Me Wanna"? Maybe I could run the Tuesday before the play? That would be an excellent way for me to express how much she's inspired me!!!
