In addition,it is one of the longest running Broadway adaptations, with it being anenthusiastically acclaimed, award winning production, running since the mid-2000’s. The character of Nettie, which is being played by Faith Johnson, is one that is close to the main character, Celie. Celie is constantly subjected to abuse and made to believe that she is unattractive, which causes her to ensure her survival by becoming silent and therefore, believing that she is invisible. Celie’s letters to God are her only outlet and means of self-expression. Celie finds God a distant figures whom she believes cares very little about her. Nettie is Celie’s younger sister and the only person she can rely on to truly love her. With Celie eventually learning to fight back against her abuser and Nettie by her side, the character of Nettie becomes what has been deemed to be one of the most prolific in the franchise. “The Color Purple – The Musical About Love” is presented by The Memorial High School Fine Arts Department. It includes three performances – December 14, 2018 and December 15, 2018 at 7 p.m. and December 16, 2018 at 3 p.m. in the Memorial High School Auditorium located at 3501 Sgt. Lucian Adams Drive, Port Arthur, Texas 77642.

Faith Johnson is the perfect choice to play Nettie. She is a Port Arthur, Texas diamond in the rough. Faith is learning to use her voice and celebrity to become one of the brightest stars to hail from Texas in recent memory. Her inaugural EP, “Clairvoyance”, is gaining notoriety with international music journalists around the blogosphere, as well as with her fans. She is also garnering roles as an actress, with “The Color Purple” being her most recent endeavor into acting. Ms. Johnson is also a well-known activist, working with various non-profits and most recently, encouraging voter registration and participation. She believes our voices need to be heard, particularly those of disenfranchised communities. Her musical talents include singing and playing the piano and acoustic guitar. She is also a visual artist, who incorporates painting with reading poetry. Faith is destined to become a star and she is not afraid to put in the hard work that accommodates such a title.

Texas Rapper, Woody Mane proves to be a Contender in the world of Hip-Hop

 

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4Q8SQt05nA]

David Austin (March 17, 1984) better known by his stage name, Woody Mane is an independent rapper born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, signed to Oneof1 Management Company. Woody Mane will mark his territory with his forthcoming EP titled, “Ghost 2.5.”

Strongly influenced by his surroundings while growing up in the gang-ridden neighborhood of Eastwood in Fort Worth, Woody Mane quickly realized his passion for music early. Woody began using it as an outlet to express things he would see in his day to day environment.

Greatly inspired by musical acts like Tupac, Lil Wayne and Chamillionaire, Mane’s biggest motivation to pursue a music career came following the untimely death of his biggest supporter and eldest brother, Derrick Austin in 2008.

The loss was a pivotal moment for the rising star, as it motivated him to go harder with his pursuit of music and begin performing throughout the DFW metroplex. He quickly amassed a core following, which resulted in him being featured on Texas legend, Lil Keke’s 2014 hit, ‘Subtract Da Top’ off his “Money Don’t Sleep” album. Since then he has gone on to collaborate with other notable Texas rappers such as Tum Tum, Solo Lucci, and Jaio.

In 2015, Mane dropped his highly anticipated debut project, Codeine Fiend, which received a warm reception by fans with popular tracks ‘Regulate’ and ‘Masked Murderer.’ He then followed up its success with the release of his second project, Black Ghost in 2016 which earned him the attention of mega music executive, Debra Antney. Woody Mane’s third project, Ghost dropped April 19, 2017, and is still doing numbers.

WM’s latest compilation, GHOST 2.5 is set to be released soon! Make sure to follow him to stay in tune with updates.

(NEW HEAT) Breadman – Breadman x Boo Gotti x Aroc – “Supa Hard” (VIDEO)

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

You would be hard pressed to find a harder working artist than Houston’s own Breadman. Breadman has made it his goal to put into motion several of his entrepreneurial projects that serve not only to help him live up to his stage name, but to help put those around him in positions of power. He is diligently building his Hoodkat Music Group imprint and plans to make it a mainstay in urban entertainment. Let’s just say, he has cornered the market on success thus far.

Breadman just dropped the visuals to his newest single entitled “Supa Hard”. It’s sort of a day in the life of Breadman type video, featuring Houston MVPs Boo Gotti and Aroc. The trio are making big plays daily and are helping to shore up the new Houston music scene, while looking to bring it back to its glory days of the 1990’s and early 2000’s. One listen to their music and you understand the term “Supa Hard”.

The video was filmed and directed by one of the South’s emerging video production companies, Anchor Life Films, and is set in Houston, Texas. It showcases tricked out whips and bikes, along with some of Hoodkat Music Group’s finest.
