(Chattanooga, TN.)--After 31 years in the business, Johnny Gill is stronger than ever. Time has had little effect on the vocals. Johnny Gill's sultry; smooth, unique sound is sure to satisfy. I enjoyed our brief "meet and greet" during Johnny's exclusive "listening party" at the Bessie Cultural Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee recently. "I couldn't ask for a more intimate, beautiful venue to bring my new music to the people." I love Tennessee and this museum is a beautiful commitment in keeping R&B alive." I've been here before and once again, the pleasure is all mine. 

Check out Johnny Gill's new CD, "GAME CHANGER” available NOW on I-Tunes.

VARION'S VIEW: "Beyond the Lights" - Must See!


It is entertaining, inspiring and a sobering reminder--"all that glitters ain't gold!"  Beyond the Lights is story of Noni, the music industry's latest "it girl!" I thought the name Noni was no coincidence. The movie had not so subtle hints of another famous sex symbol, "Norma Jean."Though the storyline comes up short I really like this movie because it is "topical and timely" for so many women out there willing to do anything for their 15 minutes of fame.

"Beyond the Lights" is a love story and a poignant glimpse of what really happens when you "chase your dreams and lose yourself in the process." I was especially happy to see a seasoned veteran like Danny Glover influence newcomers like Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker. I also loved the cameos from everyone including Chaka Khan and BET's Debra Lee.  See this film this weekend family; you'll be glad you did!
