Old School touched the lives of new school on Friday, October 14, 2011 at the El Rey Theater in Los Anegels, CA. I am talking about "Old School Lives: One Nation Under a Cause" presented by Kierrah Events and Velvet Ropes Ent.and it was all the way LIVE!!! It was for sure Aqua Boogie Baby, giving you 70's and 80's flava.
With electrifying opening acts from the Nu school babes, The Agape Youth Choir and Nu Skool Sings Old School Kids. These young hearts definitely have old souls as they sang some hits that has us movin and groovin.
Even more "Out of sight" and "Dy-no-mite" were the soul stirring performances by great legends Evelyn "Champagne" King, Lenny Williams and Brenda Lee Eager.
It did not stop there, there were also astounding tributes to some of the legends who are no longer with us such as Teena Marie, Curtis Mayfield, Vesta Williams, Luther Vandross and more by Dorothy Pincus Coleman Pincus, Ebony Fay, Lexie Cole, Mercedes Robinson York, Ray Davis and Tim McAfee Lewis.
